    What are some of the most awesomely bad things you like about any Transformers series?

    One of my top favorites is the fact that Cyclonus' main purpose is being Galvatron's practical alt-mode.

    The almost ridiculous levels of meta-humour in Child's Play. Honestly, it feels like they foresaw that we would be watching it years from now and finally get the joke.


    But there is nothing simultaneously more awful and awesome as RiD SkyByte. Poet, warrior and total butt munch all at the same time and the guy who gets the big pay off.

    "Who's the smartest shark in town, SkyByte, thats me" he's like a robot version of Tigger :D

    The fact that Rodimus & co. were all like "We can't save this planet, so fuck it, let's blow it up" when they left Paradron. Really, dude? An entire planet?

    Pretty much everything about Five Faces of Darkness. So many WTF moments, but yet so awesome.

    Then there's the time Spike played American football with the Dinobots. Good lulz all round.

    Spike finding a tape player in the desert, complete with a Decepticon symbol on the front, and not suspecting anything was wrong as he took it into the Ark.

    Or Autobot Karaoke.

    Oh, I've got one. In the Season 2 Episode "A Prime Problem," (which is a pretty ridiculous episode all-around) the evil Prime clone mistakes Ironhide for Bumblebee, calling him by the wrong name and everything. And yet, five minutes later, when the real Optimus arrives and the Autobots are trying to figure out which is which, they do so by subjecting them to a bizarre, pointless series of driving and sharpshooting tests. Rather than, you know, maybe figuring out that the fake Optimus is the one who couldn't tell Ironhide from Bumblebee minutes earlier.

    Ah, G1....

    There's one episode where there's two Menasor, one of which is fake, that gave Cons a hard time. Early in this episode Optimus and Motor Master chose to settle their differences by having a head to head collision. Dumb & dumber.

    When Rodimus says: Let's blow this popsicle stand!' Can't remember which episode. Or Arcee's scream when Springer gets sucked up in that freaky cleanin machine. That was funny :)

    Anyone who says Megatron's gun mode didn't see the awesome infiltration into a laboratory stunt he pulled by hiding in a violin case.

    My list:

    -Sky-byte's "singing" and just about everything else about him.
    -That scene in an episode of Energon where Downshift and Prowl combined with both as the torso.
    -In "A Prime problem" when Optimus is trying to convince the Autobots he's the real Prime by calling Trailbreaker "Trailblazer," and moments later calling Spike "Splick."
    -Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
    -The giant alien boy tying Thrust to a string and he just flys around in circles (instead of, you know, transforming and blasting the string, or even just stopping and shooting it in jet mode) in "Childs Play."
    -Spider-man in the early Marvel comics.

    Probably just whole G1 series and the idea of Transformers in general actually.

    A buddy of mine at work talk about this a lot, like about how absolutely ridiculous this franchise is. That's not to say we're bashing it, but more like how we love it and appreciate it for being so ridiculous. :lol 

    One of my favorite G1 screw ups is the Constructicons' origin. In their first appearance, they were supposedly built by Megatron on Earth. Then in season 2 we learn that they were friends with Omega Supreme back on Cybertron and became evil thanks to Megatron. And THEN in season 3 we see the Constructicons building Megatron! :lol  :lol  :lol 

    But that's what I love about that show. Anything goes and they can get away with it xD

    -Autobots playing basketball in The Master Builders
    -Playing baseball at the beginning of Child's Play
    -Bliztwing taking tips from a football coach (long bomb, zone defense) and adding points to the scoreboard by shooting at it!

    Essentially anytime you mix Transformers with sports.

    What?! "Masquerade" is one of my favorites. True it's very dumb, but that episode totally rocks...like Soundwave the flying tape deck!

    The basic idea that the Decepticons followed a leader with clinical mental instability in the third season.

    BW Silverbolt.

    BW "Go with the Flow" where Megatron has to get inarticulate protohuman Una to complete his doomsday weapon. (the whole episode was a G1-transplant plot, cheese included)

    Scourge & Company cleaning up with brooms to convince the Autobots they're reformed in one RID episode.

    The 'classic sitcom' jokes in TF:A. Whenever Ratchet says "What kind of cyber-moron would ever do something like that?", cue Bumblebee to show up very proud of having done just that.

    - ... and everything Wreck-Gar says or does.

    Pretty much G1 in general, still a freaking awesome show though.
