    I still consider myself fairly new to the board (joined in July '07). I've been a Transformers fan since I was a little kid in the 80's like most of the board members here.

    I have read many posts here and I read references to other TF series. I remember reading one a few weeks ago where a board member was just getting into BW. I read a few post and was amazed at his excitement. One member, I can't remember who, was totally surprised that there was someone out there that hadn't seen the series. Well, I am probably one of a select few that hasn't seen it. Actually, I haven't seen Beast Wars, Beast Machines, Armada, Energon.

    Last month when my girlfriend was sick and could sleep, she was awake and channel surfing early in the morning and came across Transformers Cybertron on CN. So I have been watching this series. It's alright, I guess.

    I would like to know where I can go on the net if possible to view full episodes of these series?

    Thanks for all your help.

    You can go to "http://www.hasbro.com/transformers", they have a few episodes up from different series. "VEOH.com", you can find alot of episodes there. You can also try "you tube", but the first 2 choices are alot better. Other members will come on with more sources for you, but i hope this helps for now.

    I watched pretty much the first half of the series on Veoh, but then had to switch to youtube to watch the second half as they weren't on veoh at that time, don't know if they are now.

    But it can be done with a bit of patience on youtube.

    Don't bother with Armada, Energon or Cybertron. Beast Wars / Machines is worth a watch though (in that order). I believe Youtube has all the eps up but I could be wrong. Otherwise the DVD sets are a worthwhile investment.

    If you have bad luck watching them on youtube and veoh, you could always try downloading them through torrent. I remember someone did us a favor posted the torrent for us to download since it aired too early in the morning. You could give that a try.

    you could download and watch Galaxy Force the Japanese Version of the show, that may be more worth your time.

    I'd look into renting them but, honestly, you aren't missing much IMO.

    If you're a G1 enthusiast like myself, other cartoon lines have been kind of a letdown. Although the new series is holding some promise, you'll be fine without BW, Energon, Armada, or Cybertron.

    Definitely watch BW/ Machines. But don't waste your time with the other three. They're terrible.

    Beast Wars Seasons 1-3 are all available through Netflix. So is Beast Machines. You can watch probably a full season and a half with just the free month-long trial, then it'll cost maybe $15 for another month to watch the rest.

    You'll be able to see it with better resolution on a bigger screen for very little, and as a bonus, you won't be troubled at night by a guilty, IP-stealing conscience.

    That last bit might be just me, though.

    AEC aren't available in season formart on Netflix, but there are some Best-Of style discs, so you can see enough episodes to know you're not missing anything special.

    Gotta babysit the godchild and his brothers this weekend and my quote-unquote friend has Cybertron TiVo-ed out the wahzoo for his kids.

    I will not even entertain the notion of watching that craptacular fest with those hyped up brats.

    couldn't sleep yesterday and watched an episode for no reason and somehow my printer started cranking out a prescription for ritalin.

    hate that series.

    i haven't seen BW/BM, but i have seen enough Armada and energon to know that these guys are being honest with you.

    You will be most rewarded by watching BW/BM first. And I definately second squirrelcar's recommendation of renting them.

    The other series are easy to pickup online as you can, via YouTube and torrents, but they can also be easily discouraging storywise. BW won't let you down storywise.
