    Okay, so I have really been wanting to get into Prime lately, but I don't have The Hub sadly, so I was thinking about buying the season 1 DVD set on Amazon.

    Of course I'm expecting consistent positive feedback from the board, but tell me, is it worth the 20 dollars for the season, or should I wait on it?

    I would really like to get it, but I need that extra push. What makes Prime so great?

    It's a pretty solid show though not without it's flaws. However it's not the kind that in my opinion that are horrendus. It has great versions of characters like Ratchet,Arcee,Starscream,as well as some intresting humans like Jack and Folwer.

    It all has to do with opinions in the end and just to letyou know there's not a lot of positivty from a lot of people here when it concerns Prime. In fact lately it's one of the most hated shows. However it's really up to you and it's about opinons in the end so sure go for it! :thumb

    you could always watch videos of it on youtube. asking for other peoples opinions can warp how you view it. I like prime for various reasons but you have to find out how you like it on your own though. I can tell you that in my opinion the cons are probably some of the most enjoyable version i've seen. my personal favorite being soundwave

    It's okay. Alot of things will probably make you mad if you warmed up to the character or plot. But it's an okay show.

    And most of it's Decepticon cast is awesome. Autobots, they're okay. But a little dull.

    He's right. Don't take the opinions of others as to whether or not you should watch the show - check out the first few episodes on YouTube, and if you like it enough, I say dive in and buy the first season. I like it enough to spring for the Blu-ray.

    Trust me, opinions of others could never warp my views of something, I just want to hear what you guys have to say.

    And I lied when I said I never watched an episode, I watched a half of one where one of the autobots, I believe it was Bulkhead, got a bomb strapped to him by someone, forget who, and Prime saves the day.

    This will sound a tad stupid, but do you think the blue-ray will look that much better than the DVDs, considering it's an animated show, or do you think it will make much of a difference?

    Bro..I have the Blu-Ray version of Prime on season 1..And let me tell you that qualilty of that will blow your mind away! That is unless..You have a very good HD screen TV then your set either way. But you can notice the different lots in my eyes for ex: I was watching Cars on regular DvD and it was ok..Put in the Blu-Ray version..And I'm like woah..Why is the DvD version so blurry? Also if your into Graphic novels/comics I think the Limited edition of Prime on Season 1 is still out there for grabs if you want that book. It's just a bit of story between Arcee, and Cliffjumper before they arrived on earth.

    The first season of any show can have its ups or downs, but TFP 1st season is very solid with only a few average episodes.

    Especially when compared to clone wars which first season which was very average.

    And $20 dollars for 26 episodes is a bargin in my book.

    I watched on the Hub and in iTunes in SD. Watching in 1080p is a whole new experience - vivid colors, details I never noticed before just jumping off the screen. The CGI is absolutely gorgeous, IMO.

    If you like the show enough to purchase the season, and you have a Blu-ray player - I say get the Blu-ray version. It'll blow the doors off of DVD.

    It's a good show. It has flaws but it is, in my opinion, one of the best Transformers series.

    Its a VERY good show IMHO. Brilliant Character development, epic battles & the humans are even utilized well. U should get the DVD or Blu-ray if u can find it. Or if u dont feel like spending the money right now u can always watch the whole season on YT :thumb

    Definately go for the Blu-ray if you have the means to play it, and if you have a 3D TV it's even better. Watching the blu-ray in 3D with the surround sound on is quite an experience. The blu-ray isn't in 3D obviously, but setting the TV on 3D still adds some extra depth to it.
