I really don't understand any negativity towards this show. It was fantastic! I grew up with the G1 cartoon so didnt understand the beast wars concept. So many people loved that show so I gave it an honest try and really liked it. The writing and sound engineering was great. I really havent been able to get into any of the Unicron trilogies and could bare only half of RID, and Beast Machines...well no thanks. Transformers Animated was ok. I get the love for the show as it coincided with TFTM but beyond that, it was too kiddy and just barely ok. But TF Prime...had an edge, had great scores, great writing, great voice acting, and every part including the humans played a pivotal role. For those with issues about dying autobots, the autobits were decimated and this show chronicled the final demise of the decepticons. Cliffjumper, tail gate, alpha trion were all either shown or mentioned as alive and then dead. Now I don't pay attention to the toys and Hasbro announcements so I didnt know if OP was going to die. And had no idea that BB lived. So maybe that helped, but decepticon main characters were killed by decepticons, if you jadnt noticed. If anything, I wasnt sure why both SS and Megs thought that predaking was dead just by throwing him out an airlock. That seemed a bit premature. All in all, I would say that this is in the top 2 if not best TF series in existence now! 15 years from now there will be a whole new generation of TF fans that grew up with TF Prime!
