PRIME became the 1st TF show I've watched in a good long time- since RID really. I've enjoyed the show- the writing, the animation, the voice acting. Before watching PRIME I have always regarded BW as the pinnacle of Transformers storytelling... and then PRIME aired. That became the new quality of TF storytelling. For Christmas my buddy gave be Shouts Beast Wars 3 seasons pack, and I have been re-watching them. Boy, the animation as not held up at all! Now, this is the big however: The initial storytelling held up remarkably well. The story... the scripts and the dialogue. Very sharp. I'll go so far as to say that Beast Wars, as a show, had more personality than PRIME does. Now, many people here might say "PRIME is only in it's 1st season, give it time". And they would be right. However, BW was witty even in the 1st season. As of right now, even tho PRIME is good- looks light years better and plays good... BW is still, IMHO, the pinnacle of TF storytelling.
