    Season 1: Fire in the Sky, I liked the idea of giving Starscream a back story. You can see he genuinely cared about Skyfire at the beginning but is clearly too wrapped up in Decepticon propaganda about gaining power, even if it means putting up with Megatron who treats him so badly. It's too bad licensing problems prevented them from utilizing Skyfire more.

    Season 2: This is hard; it keeps changing all the time. But The Insecticon Syndrome is technically the first episode I ever saw and I do have a nostalgic fondness for it. :) 

    Season 3: Not my favorite season since I wasn't a big fan of the new characters. No surprise then that I'll go with Ghost in the Machine which brought back Starscream for a little while at least, lol.

    Season 4: Not much choice there, lol.

    Season 1: (not counting awesome MTMTE )
    Countdown to exinction: I found it very overall with Starscream,Arkeville ,Cybertron and a dramatic countdown for the Earth.
    "Ultimate doom" part 3

    Season 2: soo many..anyway
    Megatron's master plan: one of the best plots
    Secret of Omega supreme:my favorite when I was a child,it explains the past of my favourite characters at that time.
    "Traitor","Microbots", and the episodes with creations of Stunticons and Combacticons.

    "Insecticons syndrome" is also very funny with enormous Insecticons and Megatron's quotes and attitude.

    Season 3:
    Ghost in the machine
    Starscream's ghost
    Webworld,Call of primitives and episodes involving Quintessons,they were usually involved in very good plots.

    Starscreams Brigade/Revenge of Bruticus. I had the UK VHS tape with all the adverts etc cut out so it played as one long movie. Glorious.

    1. The Ultimate Doom (if you count that as one? It was a 3-part episode).

    2. War Dawn.

    3. The Ultimate Weapon.

    4. I don't like Rebirth at all. I prefer the Japanese Headmaster series, It is much better! Even though that too sucks pretty hard! That is how bad I think Rebirth is!

    My favourite season is season 3. Besides my choice I love; The burden hardest to bear, Dark awakening, Dweller in the depths and Web world almost as much... and probably one or two more s.3 episodes that slipped my mind now.

    War Dawn

    1. Countdown to Extinction (If not counting MTMTE 1-3, which would be my favorite). I love the infighting between the 'Cons, the Autobots helping rebuild earth, Megatron and Prime teaming up. Lots of goofy and funny lines from this one. Megatron: "They were doomed." Skywarp: "Don't worry. We'll make them regret undooming themselves." (Runnerup: The Ultimate Doom, with a plot so good they made a $250 million movie out of it.)

    2. Day of the Machines. This episode showcases a lot of characters. It has Dinobots and Soundwave and Jetfire and Hound. I love how Prime defeats an evil computer that tries to take over the world...he tricks it and then punches it. Awesome. (Runnerup: War Dawn)

    3. Webworld, because it is so full of adult-level humor that goes right over the heads of the kids. And a worthy runner up would be Dark Awakening, mainly because bringing back Zombie Optimus Prime is so strange. And even as a zombie, Prime can't help but be heroic in the end. Plus, he kicks Rodimus Prime's butt. Sooooo satisfying!

    4. None. I prefer to think it never happened.
