    So about under two years ago, Prime started and was presumably loved by many. Have your opinons on the show itself changed over time?

    I like it less than I did before. But I don't "hate" it.

    This. The negative points many people here make about the show made me realize its weaknesses ... made me see things I didn't notice before.

    I don't hate it, I don't dislike it. I still think it's the best TF show I've ever seen. I just like it less than I did before .. as Bountyan so delicately puts it.

    Right now, the Cybertron series for consoles / PC is the best TF experience I've ever had, character-wise and excitement-wise.

    I still love it, warts and all. True, there's things I wish the writers had had the guts to follow through on, but I've still watched every episode so far - the previous series in recent years lost me before the first season was even over.

    The poll is painfully missing "like" options. I don't adore the show, but I don't hate it.

    Yay, another polarizing poll

    I forsee no people objecting to the wording or getting into fights about the show

    I don't like their jokes. I don't even remember the last joke on Prime.

    Pretty much agree with this, i've gone from completely loving the show in season 1 to just not really caring for it at all. Back in season 1, pretty much every episode I was super excited for and couldn't wait to watch it on YouTube. Then they had Unicron and this super important prophecy appear out of bloody nowhere (which I utterly despised) and my interest immediately plummeted. Now when it comes to new episodes I don't really go to any effort to watch them, hell, there are some episodes i've completely skipped because I really wasn't interested at all.
    But I don't hate it, it's still a decent show, there are still some episodes I enjoy, and Dreadwing certainly has been a welcome addition to the cast....I just don't enjoy it anywhere near as much as I used to

    I loved the series when it first started and I still love it now.

    But, I guess I have become more critical (don't know if that's exactly the right word). Here lately some of the writing has left me a bit lost because some of it just seems so random. Some scenes just left me wondering things like "Where in the world did that come from?" because it really didn't make any sense to me. It just didn't seem to flow with other lines/scenes or stuff from previous episodes. Maybe "flow" isn't the right word. Maybe I should use the word "consistent". I haven't quite put my finger on it yet which word describes it best.

    I defended the writing in Season One because I could follow everything pretty good and it made sense. But this season, every now and then, things are just not meshing together well (for me anyway).

    I used to like it - they I realised Rescuebots is 900 times better and now I find it a little dull - like a Movie clique of a cheerleader - it's pretty but dumb.

    No special love or hate for it - I will know when it's all over if I like it more than TC Cybertron or not as it is I'm still unsure - it's above Armada and Energon though about tied with G1 & Beast Machines and lower down than Beast Wars.

    I can't compare it to Playskool Gobots, TF Animated or the Japanese G1 shows as I still have not seen those shows.

    It's perfectly exceptable I suppose and it's way better that those Live action movies. But it's a bit like New Captain Scarlet, Zentrix, or Dan Dare I watched them I enjoyed it - but I have no need to obsess about them for years to come either.

    But as I always say I'm a Transformers fan for the toys - if I like a show it's because I like the show - not because it's a Transformers show. I happen to like Beast Wars as much as it's made by the same company as Reboot as much as any Transformers aspect to it ad because I also quite like the Max Steel and Action Man CGI shows too.

    So I hold some interest in Prime as it's a Pretty show and I do adore Knockout and Ratchet - but darn it is a bit boring sometimes. I really wish they'd get over the Indiana Jones relic hunting act too.

    Why is everyone starting threads debating whether we hate it or not?

    This.


    I don't hate it, it's just lacking in some cases.
