Note - never been interested in the animated versions of TF. I've seen the entirety of G1, the animated movie, and just one episode of Beast Wars (the one with G1 Starscream) and episode 1 of Animated. My love has always been the toys and the comics. I'm also in the UK, so we never get to see these shows at the same time as our across-the-pond cousins. Anyway, bored last night, I watched episode 1 of "Prime" on You Tube... and thought it was great! Cool animation, excellent voice cast (particularly liked Jeffrey Combs as Ratchet - though kept picturing him as he appeared in DS9 - and whoever played Arcee) and a decent script. Lots of action, peppered with some great characterisation. And the Decepticons are quickly established as a real danger. Poor Cliffjumper! All in all, excellent. Has made me very interested in watching the show when it finally comes to the UK, and also the toyline... the fact that the producers intend to make this the flag-bearer for the franchise over the next few years opens up lots of intriguing possibilities.
