So that's it: Transformers Animated as we know it done and dusted. Most of us have accepted that it's going for good, and I think that even the optimistic hope-against-hope minority would still admit that "Endgame Part II" at the very least represents a significant conclusion point in this story. With that in mind, then, what do you regret about the series as it now exists as a whole? What left you feeling unfulfilled? What might have been done better if they'd have had more time? Was there anything you felt that they outright messed up? Because as great a series as it was, nothing's perfect, and I'd like to hear from you other fans exactly what left you with a feeling of "what might have been..." Here's my breakdown: Sari: This is the main one. This series was structured around viewers placing a major investment in Sari, and at the end of the day, we just didn't get a suitable return on it. Huge amounts of time were spent in the first two seasons establishing her character, the Season 3 opening gave us some answers, introduced new plot aspects and set the character arc up for its home stretch...and then dropped it like a rock. Sari became a peripheral character upon whom no narrative emphasis was placed, and with only meagre lipservice paid to her incomplete character arc. They posed so many questions that were later just abandoned: where did she come from? What is she? Why was she there? Why did the AllSpark "choose" her, and for what? I don't know why they were forced to write Sari out as a main narrative driver in that way, but it really upsets the structure of the whole show terribly. Bumblebee's character arc: He didn't have one. He never had one. Prime had his journey to leadership. Prowl finally achieved enlightenment. Ratchet made peace with his past. Bulkhead, even though his arc petered out at the start of S3, found his true creative calling. Bumblebee basically goofed around for two seasons and then got written out with Sari, with even the Wasp plotline wasted as an opportunity for the character to grow; disappointing for such a prominent character. The Dinobots: I'm not the biggest Dinobot fan, but even I can see how badly they were wasted by TFA. We got a great intro episode for them in "Blast From the Past" that established them as dangerous wildcards, and then nothing: no personalities, no action scenes, no meaningful contribution to the plot in a positive or a negative way. If the writers never had any intention of using them for anything, why not kill them off after their debut, instead of leaving them hanging uselessly like a vestigial limb? The Constructicons: This is a slightly different issue, because we all know where they were going with this; they just weren't given the opportunity to get there. The fact that they never did does have the unfortunate effect of making their episodes seem kind of like wastes, though... Sentinel's character loop: By and large, Sentinel Prime was one of the most successful innovations of TFA, but his cycle of character growth and regression went round a couple of times too many to be forgiveable. Sure, have him be a jerk, but don't constantly fake us out with false moments of development that are completely erased by the next episode. Optimus and Sentinel's reconciliation at the end of "Predacons Rising" was excellently written, and should have been the end of his character arc; the fact that the writers hit the reset button on him again just made me lose patience. Endgame Shockwave: For me, Shockwave turning purple represented the end of the much more interesting character he was before then. Seeing Shockwave one of the 'Con crew is fun, but this guy had practically become the series's main antagonist for the entire third season; turning him into an inconsequential run-of-the-mill henchman for the finale kind of robbed us of the much more satisfying payoff for that we could have got for a character that good. Earth or Cybertron?: As much as I liked seeing more of Cybertron and its characters in S3, I do have to say that it kind of ended up compromising a lot of the show's focus. Having been a very Earth-oriented show for two seasons, S3 felt like it kind of lost interest in our planet, phasing out almost all of the human characters and Detroit-centric plot ideas and moving most of the story emphasis to Cybertron. Only problem: all of the main characters were still on Earth. So what we got for much of the final season was an odd situation where neither the characters nor the viewers had any real reason to be interested in the show's actual original setting and premise; to say that ended up leading to a slight loss of focus/coherence would be an understatement. Anywho, that's all I can think of for now, so I'll hand over to you guys. And remember: I'm not hating at all here, nor am I encouraging anybody else to. Just that with all the praise going around right now, I'd be interested to hear what constructive criticism you might have to offer as well.
