I grew up in the 80's so as you can imagine I'm a pretty hard core G1-er. Loved the show, didn't read the comic regularly but saw a few issues. Really loved the WWI series. Now I checked out season one of Animated, and I really like it. But I also started watching the first season of Beast Wars and have gotten half way through it and so far it doesn't interest me. I really want to be open minded toward the other series, but I also don't want to waste my time if I'm not going to appreciate them. I'm wondering if, based on what I've said (Love g1, love animated, did not care for first season of Beast Wars, hopefully that gives you an idea of my tastes) if you gents (and ladies) could give me some suggestions that I might like. Do you think any series(es ) would be more to my liking? Maybe a particular season was better than the rest in a certain series? I'd like to give Beast Wars another chance if someone could confirm that the series started off really slow but got a lot more interesting in later seasons (and if so which particularly?). I'm all for discussing the different series, but please keep in mind my purpose for this thread is for big time fans of each series to explain what they liked about the series and recomendations on which season is best representative of that series as a whole. Let's try to refrain from "Your favorite series sux!" type replies. If I find they do indeed suck, I'll start another thread for that.. Just kidding! Discuss.
