IMO TF: Animated is on par with the original G1 cartoon series. I'd have to say the stories, the characters, the writing, etc. make it at least equal to G1. Not to mention the toys which are absolutely chocked with fully loaded, fantastical 100% pure WIN. I haven't felt this way about a TF cartoon show since G1. I feel like a kid again. My top three shows would be G1, Animated, and Beast Wars. they would be ranked something like this: G1=TF Animated > Beast Wars. (Beast Wars is runnimg a close second.) So what do you think? Are G1 and Animated equal? Why or why not?
