    I have finally finished watching the first whole season and I would like to give my thoughts.
    So far it's a really good TF series, but of course, it will never hold a candle to Beast Wars.

    I'm just going to say what I like and don't like:

    Like:

    The animation: It's very clear, smooth and colorful,
    definitely what a CGI animated show should be.

    The action: Now I'll be honest, I like the Micheal Bay films action the most *Flameshield*.
    But Prime still has awesome action, it's very fast paced.

    The writing: Of course, it still not as good as BW, but on it's own,
    it's one of the best written shows I've ever seen.

    The characters: I love Starscream, Knock Out and Agent Fowler,
    Fowler reminds me of both Simmons and Mearing in one
    (Now I can't get the thought of what their kid would look like out of my head...)

    Don't like (More or so like nitpicks):

    Some of the "Shaking camera": It's kinda annoying on my part.
    It's looks a bit cheesy sometimes.

    The spikes on modern robots: They're just fine on ancient 'bots like The Fallen, Unicron or Cybertronian forms,
    but I just don't like it on Bumblebee or Arcee, it seem a little out of place.

    Prime's nose...: He just doesn't really look right without a nose...I still think it's one of the top
    Optimus Prime designs with Movie Prime at top and Cybertron Prime
    in the second (Eat your heart out GEEWUNNERS), but without a nose I'm still a little nitpicky with it.

    Unicron's short time: Really? In the first season? Armada at least hyped him up before the final episodes. Then again, he could appear
    later in, I just hope he's a mechanical planet.

    As for the toys? I would like to get a Leader Optimus Prime, maybe Megatron too and Breakdown.

    So far, I like the series and I hope it has a good run.

    My favourite incarnation of Transformers yet. Just add some beast modes and this series will hold that title from me for a very long time.

    I love it so far. Sure there's a couple issues, but it's fine.

    SPOILERS FOR EPISODE 26:

    To be fair, Unicron wasn't fully "awakened", the idea was to keep him from doing that, so it wasn't as big as it could've been, but that've just made us spoiled now, wouldn't it?

    It's kind of funny how Optimus Prime used to have a nose before he became a Prime.

    Does that mean Voldemort is a Prime?

    i think this is like beast wars crossed with animated and movie. this series turned out better then i expected, though the things that bothered me then still bother me (bumblebee speech). favorite characters, knockout, blackarachnia, fowler, and ratchet.

    so after seeing the fanale, i went back and saw the '86 movie :D  (sweet nostalgia)

    I thought I was going to hate Bumbleb-EE, especially his voice. But I've surprisingly gotten over the voice and actually have grown to really liking the character (especially how he looks after Raf).

    It's close to being almost as good as Animated. The only thing it's missing, is that extra sprinkle of charm.

    That sounded way to fruity...

    I think you are exactly right. The show needs a bit of clever humor to it, and that would tip the scales in its favor, in my opinion.

    I'd say that another couple of 26 episode seasons at the same level as this first season has been, and I'll definitely crown this my favorite Transformers series.

    I think that this series not only brings fans of those two series(es) together, but this series actually brings together all versions of Transformers. It's got nods to the original series, Beast Wars, Animated, and the live movies. One might say that Transformers Prime is where everything Transformers comes together.
