Coming from G1 and going into something like Beast Wars, Wars II and Car Robots/RID one could say that was a dark age. However watching Car Robots and BWII today they aren't horrible. I was someone who would not watch anything but G1 and G1 comics. Prime was game changing and that broke me out of G1 only syndrome . I loved it and wished they just kept going. I really wish though we got better figures out of it. Unicron Trilogy was okay but too long in my opinion. Couldn't watch in English Can't say I like RiD / Adventure and I really tried. I liked Transformers Go! more than that and that isn't saying much.
