    I can agree with this on a certain degree. Rid isn't that bad as a standalone thing, but I think this show would be a bit better received if it wasn't marketed as a 'sequel" of such a "well-received" show like Prime.

    Unless you the thing you like is illegal and/or involves underage children doing inappropriate things. You should feel guilty for like that.

    well yes. That's the exception to the rule. Otherwise though, knock yourself out. I won't put down anyone who dislikes shows/movies etc I like.

    I like RID, it's actually one of my favorite Transformer cartoons of all time, next to Beast Wars and the original RID (2001), so it's definitely not a unanimous thing. You shouldn't feel bad about liking something others dislike, you are entitled to your own opinion.

    I agree with you. It is stupid that continues after half an adult series with a children's series. Otherwise, RID is ok.

    By the way ... I'm still angry that Megtron did not show up. At least for one episode. Therefore, there are negatives of me. :mad

    The only show I don't think anyone deserves to like is Teen Titans Go. RiD15 is perfectly fine as it's own thing, my only real problem is it having anything to do with Prime.

    Shame on you for enjoying a show made to be enjoyed and watched, you are the worst person in the world.

    I don't watch it but I appreciate it for what it is. I haven't seen a Transformers show since Animated but I really like what they did with RID.

    They introduced a whole lot of new Decepticons with a variety of alt-modes instead of the usual aircraft/tank/animal stuff, and some really clever designs.

    I love Bisk, Clampdown, Quillfire, Thunderhoof, etc., and hope we see more of them in the future.

    If you haven't seen it then how can you appreciate it for what it is?

    Aesthetically speaking, mostly. I like the way the characters look and from the episodes I did see, it looks to be a fine kids show.

    Yeah, if only that was the case. They give up on designs after season 1.

    OP, you seem to have equated embarrassment with guilt, and they are two different things. You're embarrassed that you like something that a number of people do not. That isn't something to be guilty about.

    So what if other people don't like it. If you're not hurting anyone by enjoying it, keep on enjoying. Those other people who you claim are 'everyone,' but certainly aren't, are just pixels on a screen that you can turn off at any time. And if your friends in RL give you crap, enjoy it without them.

    If you feel guilty for watching RID2015, imagine how you'd feel for enjoying KISS Players. :D 

    Srsly, RID2015 was a great follow-up to Prime, despite the discontinuity. It had great designs, fresh characters and a new perspective.

    Never feel guilty for enjoying a show. You like what you like and own that. I've seen rid15 up to the end of Decepticon Island, simply because the rest ain't on netflix. And i found it to be harmless fluff. A nice, light hearted romp with fun characters and the best on screen humans since g1. It was a nice change of pace over the super heavy always serious prime. I like Strongarm enough i picked up her toy. I like steeljaw. And i like it gave us a show with no optimus or Megatron for once. At least for one season. I'd have preferred it if prime just kept Kenobi-ing bee.

    So don't feel guilty. Don't feel ashamed. Just happily enjoy it. Rev up and roll out!
