    SOS Dinobots and Fire in the Sky... pretty much two of G1s most iconic episodes.
    Heavy Metal War
    The Secret of Omega Supreme... really one of the best episodes in the entire franchise.
    Quest for Survival
    Dinobot Island
    War Dawn
    Trans-Europe Express
    The Key to Vector Sigma
    Starscream's Brigade
    The Five Face of Darkness (mostly for the Quintessons who are marvelous here)
    The Return of Optimus Prime
    Dark Awakening
    The Rebirth... Optimus Prime leading late-G1 autobots from Autobot City is amazing.

    Yeah, I remember renting the videos of "Five Faces of Darkness" when I was little & being blown away by how much I learned from it. I actually thought it was a movie for the longest time.

    grimlock's new brain showed how awesome of a character grimlock COULD of been, if had always had that brain.

    but then they went off and took it away... :(

    The Ultimate Doom trilogy plus the episode after that are probably my favorite.

    It's practically impossibe to pick a single ep. for each season, so here's my list:

    Season 1
    1. The Ultimate Doom part 1-2-3 ('cause Starscream is almost brilliant there)
    2. More Than Meets The Eye part 1-2-3 (as it got everything started)
    3. S.O.S Dinobots (as it got the Dinobots started)
    Season 2
    • Starscream's Brigade (Starscream, again competent, reactivates the Combaticons)
    • The Revenge Of Bruticus (Competent Combaticons)
    • Triple Takeover (a MAJOR blunder by Starscream)
    Season 3
    • Starscream's Ghost (Even dead, Starscream schemes)
    • Ghost in the Machine (Starscream SCAMS UNICRON! Successfully!)
    • Grimlock's New Brain (I, Grimlock Smartest Autobot of all!)
    Overall, my top 4 are Starscream's Brigade, The Revenge Of Bruticus, Starscream's Ghost & Ghost in the Machine. Competent Starscream all the way... & the Starscream in my comic is competent as well. :ev:

    Webworld, Dark awakening, The ultimate weapon, War dawn.
    Those are some of my favorites but I love most of them.

    The one I dislike most is The Autobot run.

    I really liked Fire in the Sky in season one. I'm not even going to try and list all of them.

    This! I loves me some Starscream and Bruticus when they present a credible threat (to both Autobot and Decepticon alike, heh) - well, as credible a threat that G1 logic allowed (loopholes and nonsensical plot devices notwithstanding). XD

    Those are some of my favorite episodes as well.

    But I'd have to say that this three part episode was the best that the series had to offer.

    Then you might enjoy my comic. A competent (& Scientist) Starscream, who's smart enough to know 2 Grimlocks = terrible odds regardless of numbers & the situation, leads the Classics Decepticons (mostly G1 personalities) against the Animated Elite Guard & some allies from various eras (& they'll join Voltron once I can get the plot to Planet Arus -- which hopefully will be around Update 21, I'm working on #18 & getting the remaining cast into the plot). Chapters Zero & 2 got away from me: ZERO w/ an impromptu battle, 2 w/ plot -- chapter 1 explains the Combaticons as a reveiw -- but everything's worked out nicely. & my Bruticus is a combat genius! (A Bruticus, w/ FansProject's add ons, & a filtering algorithm that restricts Brawls impact on the combined mind, while boosting efficiency, capable of utilizing ALL of his unobstructed weapons to target multiple combatants).
