    I used to not like Animated. I thought it was dumb and pretty lame. I watched the first couple of episodes, but I just wasn't feeling it. I do realize now that it is a show targeted at little kids, but it was just an annoyance to me.

    Now that I have a watched a few more and have seen them introduce a lot more characters that should have been there to start, I like it more. That isn't the only reason why, but it added a lot to it. The jokes are still lame and the humor overall is very 7-year-oldish but that's ok because now I see it for being a decent show... better than Energon (that is just my opinion).

    You know, I thought about it, and another complaing I have is just how some characters look. Optimus Prime for example looks very Spider-manish and the face is just plain blah!

    Also I think Soundwave looks quite strange.

    I was the same when I first saw it. I didn't think I'd be able to get into it. Now it's my favorite show ever. :p

    I thought it looked a bit funny when I first saw the designs from the opening poster. I was WRONG.

    Finding out that Derrick J Wyatt did the character designs, enjoying the writting, seeing all the nods to all the old Transformers franchises among every other little homage to non-TF related movies, comics, and anime...

    I've tried to go back to G1, nostalgia goggles in hand, but they do nothing whatsoever. TFA is so good that it may have just destroyed my childhood.

    Then...then there's Sari (it's my duty to plug her in here)...I couldn't imagine them picking a better voice actor than the talented Tara Strong. It goes without saying they've done an incredible job with *all* of the voice work, even grabbing G1 voice actors to reprise their roles.

    I *LOVE* Transformers Animated.

    Well...he's halfway to learning the important lesson of not to judge something by its appearance at least.

    I used to have that mentality when the new He-Man and TMNT cartoons came out...kinda regret not having given those two a chance.

    Let's just change a few words around...


    Using the toilet is cool but shitting my pants is a part of my childhood and for that reason will always be the best in my eyes.
    :drunk 


    Animated is superior to g1 in every conceivable way.

    It's time to take off the rose tinted glasses of nostalgia and youth.

    Hey, hey, hey. If he thinks G1 is the best in his eyes, let him be, that's his opinion.

    While I do feel that Animated is overall a superior show, there are a lot of things in G1 that have never been done successfully in any other show - the huge cast, the feeling that wherever evil strikes, the Autobots will only be just over the horizon, showing up in a heroic cavalry charge, etc.

    hey now! :stick:  play nice lol Ill admit Animated is awesome and in many ways better than G1 , the figures certainly are better than the bricks of my childhood ( Im looking at you Rodimus Prime) but for me at least there is something important in remembering my first experiance with transformers and i am sure others here feel the same, as to how many here are old enough to have G1 be that experiance, I cannot say but i would think a fair number, but ill thank you to not rape my childhood memories thats what micheal bay :bay  is for! and also there is undeniable truth if not for G1 there would not be an animated

    When I first saw animated I was like "Ugh, another lame kids show." and boy I was so wrong!

    And after watching a few episodes it became one of my favorite shows.
    And I loved it even more after watching lots of funny poops of it on youtube.

    I can't even compare Animated to Energon. I can't. I can't compare Star Wars to Battle Beyond the Stars. Not even the same league.
