    I've got all the Transformers :D  G1 (yes, I know, GEEWUN, whoa man whoa :rolleyes: ) episodes at my disposal and I want to know which ones are the cream of the crop.

    Last night I watched "Enter The Nightbird" 2x10 and it blew my mind. Plenty of Soundwave, great quotes from Optimus, plenty of action, minimal Spike/human storyline and plenty of Starscream vs. Megatron. And then of course, a female robot ninja.

    I know that there are polls and posts about voting on the best of each G1 season, but I'm not interested in that. I want to know what's an episode you could recall from memory, one that you don't need to look at a list of titles to choose. I want to hear some reviews and suggestions for more of those awesome episodes. Among favorites I could pick out of thin air...

    "Grimlock's New Brain" - comedy gold, albeit a familiar story
    "Plauge of the Insecticons" - who doesn't want more insecticons? Bring 'em on
    "The Secret of Omega Supreme" - The Constructicons have a long standing feud with Omega Supreme?? Please, tell me more...

    I liked the one where those robots turned into cars and some other robots turned into planes. I forget which episode it is.

    For animation, Call of the Primitives from Season 3 without a doubt. Pity they couldn't afford/wouldn't pay to have every episode look that good.

    The Burden Hardest to Bear is my personal favourite G1 episode.

    BOT...just for the hilarious attempted Bruticus merger, and the Autobots getting hit with cafeteria food. :D 

    OK...seriously? Starscream's Brigade and Revenge of Bruticus are my favs. Even though they are not the "best"

    Just adding to all the ones already posted (because there were a lot of good ones I would have said).

    Golden Lagoon
    Megatron's Master Plan Part 1 and 2
    More than Meets the Eye

    You are probably better off asking which ones not to watch since there are less than five episodes that weren't great in my opinion.

    Auto Berserk-
    Good quality animation wise. One the few times you see an Autobot developed super weapon. It works, AND Wheeljack created it. Make that TWO rare occurrences:wink: 
    Starscream teaming up with an malfunctioning Red Alert? Pure win.

    Though the one thing I never understood is after the Autobots put the "Negavator" back on level 9 in their command bunker, why does Optimus Prime close the gate on Hoist after he just finished parking the damn thing? Prime makes Hoist run for his life for no reason. He even tells him to "hurry!"

    Guess Prime is a prankster at heart :)

    'More Than Meets The Eye', 'Heavy Metal War', 'A Plague Of Insecticons', 'Traitor', 'Changing Gears', 'Auto Beserk', 'Make Tracks', 'God Gambit', 'The Search for Alpha Trion', 'Triple Take-over (?)'

    Lots come to mind, having just watched G1 again recently, but Nothing seems to surpass the 'More Than Meets The Eye' story. 'Heavy Metal' is a great follow up to it and is one of my favourite episodes of the lot.
    'City Of Steel', is also good, mainly as we see the true robotic nature of the TFs revealed with Prime being dissassembled and so forth. This episode more than any other proves that the TFs, in G1, are manufactured parts and servos, etc.
    Even before the Quintesson angle I was convinced they were just sentient machines, machines that need fixing, maintenance and can be rebooted after near 'death', all of which were addressed in this one episode.
    The last vestage of Prime's power being depleted in the movie's final battle with Megatron seals the deal that TFs could 'die' as a result of low energon (hence why Ultra Magnus could still be repaired - enough energon).
    Anyway, I'm rambling a bit, but those are my fave G1s.
