    How would oyu guys feel if like other prime time shows out there we had a transformers show that was and hour long instead of 30 minutes. I was just thinking that it would give oppurtunity for better story devolpment on a show and hopefully we could have the same amount of episodes. just think if we had 40 some odd episodes of hour long PRIME so far .

    No thanks....

    Most hour long shows drag on and are very boring.

    Half hour shows are better. because their more faster paced and don't drag on.

    No.

    The only way that could work would be making it a one-time thing and breaking it up into Part 1 and 2 for reruns.

    I'd be content either way. I like the twenty-minutes-long episodes we have now, though. Can't really imagine it going any other way. Timing isn't the problem, it's execution.

    I'd rather have one-hour long specials expanding the universe.

    I think kids would lose concentration, and it's awkward joining in halfway through the episode. Also, it takes up slot time on the Hub for other stuff. I wouldn't like it myself.

    An hour long live action series would be cool. But a cartoon? Naw, kids attention spans are too short, plus it'd cost more money (probably, I'm no expert).

    Prime works the best being in the 30 range.

    Now if it had the energy that Animated had, then I would of thought an hour would be the best for it.

    1.) What would it matter? People would complain about it regardless. :lol 
    2.) Or you could just string two 30 minute episodes together. Boom. Now you've have a "one hour" show.
    3.) I feel that one hour shows are better suited for dramatic, live-action shows (CSI, House, etc.).

    Would I be opposed to the idea? No. Do I want to sign a petition and wave picket signs? Not really.

    No.

    Hour long shows are generally meant for adults, and if Transformers is primarily targeting adult fans, that would mean that the brand as a whole is doing shit and desperate for whatever clientbase it can get.

    That'd be great! Everytime an episode ends I always wish it were longer because I think the show is that good.

    If they could do a live action series well on a small budget (or at least one typical of an hour-long show), one that was aimed towards an adult audience since a kid's attention span generally isn't as long, I would love to see an hour-long Transformers show. But an hour-long cartoon geared towards kids just wouldn't work.
