I was just reminiscing about the day at school I told my friends I liked Beast Wars (it was airing at the time) *cue flashback* I was sitting with my friends at the lunch table and I told them I liked Beast Wars and the guys were all like "you like Transformers?!" "That show is awesome!" "I like the part when..." and the discussion went on like that for the rest of lunch. They all watched the show too. I thought they were going to laugh at me for liking cartoons and it was the total opposite! Of course I ruined it by saying "Beast Wars is a Transformers show?" . I mean I knew it said it in the opening scene, but it just really never connected. Because to me growing up Transformers were cars. (This was also somewhere mid first season, so we still didn't know it was connected to G1, etc.) How did you come out as a fan? What were people's reactions?
