    Hate is such a strong word. So I'm using least favorite.
    Is there an episode that you didn't like much or at all?


    Mine is Nanosec.This episode shows Bumblebee is to naive or stupid to function even in a ragtag group of Space Bridge repairbots.

    It has two of my favorite moments of TFA and interesting moments.

    The Animation Killed the episode to me

    Any episode where they are fighting human super-villains(basically most of the first season). I mean, the princess on the flying pony? Nanosec? Meltdown? SUV? Who was the writer who thought up that steaming pile of horse manure? Can I slap you? If I were Bulkhead, I would eat them. I was praying for Blitzwing and Lugnutz to come in and go apeshit and they would be 'innocent casualties' lol.

    You really just don't get it, do you?
    Anyway, Megatron Rising Part 2, because it was pants. Only bit worthwhile in it was 'Decepticons, transform and rise up!', but other than that, pure pants.

    Check the writers of the episodes
    I hate the super villains except the Archer and Meltdown.

    Anyway, my close contenders for the least favorite episodes are SUV, Total Meltdown,Headmaster,and part 2 of Transform and Roll Out (where they fight the monster)

    The human villains are ACTUALLY a GOOD thing. They are meant to show the situation of Detroit, how some of the humans feel about the robots, and to show how powerful the Decepticons are. I like SUV, but it doesn't have any build up. Also I didn't care for Garbage In Garbage out because of the lack of action.

    I like Human Villians :( 

    Meltdown because it ties with beast machines ideas. Headmaster just for being a asshole nerd. And NanoSec and Slowmo by they designs.

    For me, it's a tie between "Nature Calls" and "Sari, No-One's Home", two lightweight and fairly silly genre parodies that really suffered from being positioned right before their respective season finales. Don't get me wrong, I don't think that either episode was necessarily bad; it's just that in both cases, they came across as unnecessary narrative speed bumps at points when the overall series pacing should really have been ramping up towards big conclusions. I'm all for the series taking a breather and having a little fun from time to time, but there's a right time and place for it, guys.

    I don't really get the blanket hating on the human villains, either; in all honesty, I'm actually quite fond of the likes of Angry Archer and Nanosec. The most problematic of them for me is Meltdown; maybe it's because Peter Stormare is really expensive to hire for the voicework and they want to get their money's worth or something, but every time he shows up the writers feel the need to centre the whole episode around him, and he's really not interesting enough to justify that. What I like about the other human villains is that they're really just background colour, designed to support the central robot-centric plotlines. For that purpose, I like them just fine...
