    I tried to watch Prime when it came out and I couldn't handle some of the lame dialog and the irritating human (you know the one). I decided, now that season 1 is on Netfix, to give it another try. The series has been redeemed for several reasons. There is some good action, and a few clever plot points, but when I saw humans being killed left and right, no parachutes from exploding choppers or shaking off that close call, I am sold.

    I am sick of giant gun-toating robots/monsters/etc being in these kids shows with no real danger to the humans around them. In the last couple episodes I have seen people die because of the Transformers, Autobot and Decepticon.

    Bravo for having the balls to off people Prime!

    Prime WAS made with the intent of appealing to older audiences as well though---but yeah

    I was just pleasantly surprised by the mature approach.

    Prime is certainly bold when it comes to showing death human or Transformer which makes it stand out in a good way. :thumb  Whatever problems it has being dumbed down is certainly not one of them. :)

    But this said ''Best thing about Prime'' thus what he likes about Prime. Leather Elbows is just pointless complaints.

    Body count isn't hardcore. At least here it's justified instead of Breakdown AKA Energon writing 2.0.

    The way they do death is very adult..at least when spider bot is involved....she puts me in mind of a serial killer like hannibal lecter. The way she likes to have her victims strung up...

    TFP may let people die, but they make up for it by making the humans more threatening than the Decepticons. IMO that hurts the show. G1's surviving humans was a better way of keeping our spirits up because it didn't hurt the show.

    I can agree that G1 would not have benefited from human deaths.

    However a single human organization that can occasionally taze a cybertronian does not make this statement true.

    Mech is at least 5/6. They got Breakdown, Arcee, Optimus Prime, Starscream and Bumblebee. Airachnid is the only TF who has one-upped them.

    MECH is more dangerous than the usual Knock Out, Breakdown, and the squad of Vehicons.

    Dead humans doesn't make a show mature, but I'm glad you seem to appreciate it.

    You must be happy because we're never seeing that group again.
