    "herugrim, post: 14995224, member: 65999"]People are a bit harsh on Energon. I actually found it slightly easier to watch then Armada or Cybertron, since there was no babysitting little kids and collecting gimmicks stuff. It was pretty much straight up transformers fiction. Not beast wars or even prime levels but not as dated as the original and less redundant than it's sibling shows.
    Thanks for the input!
    "Mako Crab, post: 14995328, member: 39427"]I was about to say something, but realized it was going to get into spoiler territory. I'll save it for after AwesomePow is done watching it.Aw,thanks for no so
    "AMG, post: 14995394, member: 58290"]Ah, good old Energon. It's a guilty pleasure of mine.


    Ughh...quotes still in the message I'm making now.De Quoted.

    I wish you a fun journey!
    Enjoy the show for what it is. As negative as people treat it, it's got some great stuff that sticks out over the series, like,

    Hey! No Spoilers!!
    Tee-Hee!

    Non-Spoiler stuff to enjoy:
    -The show's song
    -the great opening eps (3-parter?)
    -a bunch of really cool 1-shot episodes throughout
    - the great consistent story editing
    -Very cool animation
    -The actual overall story arc
    -The great use of the toy gimmick
    ...well 1 of the gimmicks. (The other was a disaster! :D  )

    Oh dude, please stay away from TFWiki! Or you'll be violating your own rule! :D

    Yes,I just looked at 1 small screenshot of Cybertron City....couldn't even make it out.

    But I only know Demolisher,Tidal Wave,Galvatron,Sideways,and Unicron return.

    And thanks for the not-spoilers but spoilers.

    If you go in expecting the worst..... Its not that bad. If you can overlook Kicker and his Kickerness it is damn near ok. LOL

    There's actually 52 episodes of Energon. There's one episode that wasn't included on the western dvd releases but can be found on youtube.

    I don't want assume anything because I don't really know you, and I certainly wouldn't want to scare you away from it because it's my favourite series, but you MIGHT be biting off a little more than you can chew with this...

    I'm in though!

    Energon was the first TF show I watched, even tho Armada introduced me to the franchise. I personally like it more than Cybertron (that show put me to sleep lol)

    Can't wait for Christmas.

    Cybertron is actually really good.
    But still, are you ready for Energon?
    and are you ready to have your bladder burst?

    Man,Kicker is such junk!!!!Skipped through his flashbacks,he sucks so bad!!!Nice to see the Armada kids grown,but CARLOS AGAIN!!!!!!!Also,are Alpha Quintesson's soldiers Pounce and Wingspan clones?They look so alike.Hope we have names for the Rescue Force that combined with Optimus....the beginning was nice...Ironhide is awesome...hope he rises to power like Hot Shot.Not a fan of the more machine like designs....but wait,Hot Shot and Optimus Prime COMBINED SPARKS???

    More to come later!

    Thanks,

    I look forward to your reactions to Cybertron. It definitely isn't the best, but it is my favorite Transformers series to date.

    So...continued.

    I wonder what Alpha Quintesson is really plotting.Hot Shot shows how rookies earn legacies,and I wish the best for lil Ironhide.Plus,Demolisher is still my favorite,and his design is still the best.Although,WHY did they make Tidal Wave green?!?

    Episode 2:

    Wow...the Omnicons' abilities are really cool.Alexis looks so different...NOOO!!!Cyclonus,Tidal Wave,do you read???I felt so sad when Demolisher said "You would rescue them if they were Autobots..."I hope they made it through.And poor Ironhide.The rookie is the one that has to deal with Mr.Annoying?Sad.And Misha Miramond is just weird.Is she even any importance?Optimus did say to Ironhide "And don't rely on your Energon..."He was right.Without Kicker,he might be dead.Even though I hate him so much and he annoys me so badly,at least he has importance.So...Prime a Force randomly disappears and appears randomly,even though they're the main part of the opening combiner sequence?EVACUATE OCEAN CITY!!!And wth,did I just see Scorponok rise in front of Alpha Quintesson?Spooky.This episode did have great animation though,the Terrorcons dropping the energy down to the Master was well done,and all the movements.Demolisher...still my favorite.Omnicons were probably one of the highlights that were most enjoyable...does Strongarm share a mold with G1 Outback?Reminds me even though he's from Brawn.Skyblast is really cool,all buffed up.I really enjoyed the Energon Star transfer...overall...great episode,and I can't wait to see THE RISE OF SCORPONOK next time!:)

    Yeah, Demolishor really stole the show in the first chunk of Energon. He's cool. I kinda think this is why he wound up getting into WFC multiplayer.
