Why is there some TF fans that absolutely hate this show and think G1 is so much better? I mean I myself grew up on G1 and it will always have a place in my heart, but I find Beast Wars and Animated to be more enjoyable because of the character development and most importantly the CONTINUITY. I mean seriously, they had three different origins on how the Constructicons were made. 1. In "Heavy Metal War" Megatron says he built them on Earth. 2. In "The Secret of Omega Supreme" they were friends with everyone's favorite guardian robot until Megatron used some sort of device to turn them into Decepticons. This contradicts the first origin 3. In "Five Faces of Darkness" the constructicons where the ones who built Megatron.......I believe I've made my point here. Not to mention characters would "die" and somehow come back with no explanation. Also there were the animation errors...hoo boy did it have a lot of them, but I'm not going to name any. Then there was the problem if them almost having every single toy appearing in the cartoon which left room for little character development except for characters like Optimus Prime, Megatron, and Starscream, probably for the intent of Hasbro of getting kids to buy the toys. Don't get me wrong, there WAS character development, but I don't think enough of it. Now I'm not saying animated is perfect, everything has it's flaws (lame human villians) but I don't see HOW TF fans can hate it. I mean THE VERY FIRST THING THEY DO IS SHOW G1 FOOTAGE and there is also references to G1 and other TF serries within some of the characters (like Prime not knowing where his trailer goes) and EVERY SINGLE EPISODE for the most part. Also they take some characters from G1 and improve them greatly then their past counter parts. Ex: Megatron isn't a ego maniacal idiot and is not afraid to kick some serious ass when the Autobots fight back. Starscream isn't a whiner and actually secedes in backstabbing Megatron UNOTICED, and is not afraid to go the front of the firing line. Not to mention he whopped the Autobot's cans in the first episode BY HIMSELF, therefore posing an actual THREAT to not only the Autobots but Megatron himself. I could go on but everything else has been probably said a hundred times before. With all these references and improvements on the characters themselves, it just doesn't make sense for any TF fan to hate animated. Sure it's different, sure I prefer G1 prime but animated prime is definitely worthy of the name, and sure that some characters might be a little different but I believe for the better. It just doesn't make sense to me why some TF fans hate this show...I just don't get it...if any one can tell me, please let me know because it just doesn't make sense.
