Since Animated was talked about years ago, it has had a bitter sweet love and hate relationship amongst fans. As for me, being the G1_Leet. I like the series a lot, despite some really stupid non-sensical human characters who need to be burned alive like the princess chick, and the green arrow rip-off. Might as well throw Sari in for good measure. I know Jar jar is of another universe, but I really want him dead really badly. But besides that, the series is one of my favorites. Unlike Armada, Energon, and Cybertron, and even to a lesser extent Robots In Disguise. Those shows do not do what Animated does. Be faithful to G1 Transformers. If some so-called Transformers fans(on TFW2005) took the time to actually watch the series, they would see the clear G1 references and fan service that really makes the show worthwhile. The show is also very well animated, has some great action, and the underlying story they had going was very well done with Blurr, plus the show had some really good story overall. Plus Megatron biding his time to re-build himself was also really nice to see just how much more evil and devious he really is, as well as heartless. The epitome of the Decepticon name if you will. They really fleshed out the characters more so than G1 did, and certainly more than Armada, Energon, and Cybertron ever could. And it made sense to work with a smaller cast of TFs than a bigger cast where you have multiple characters at once. And to also build TFA toward a larger cast later on as the story got more complex I also like how they re-worked some of the characters personalities and rolls. I loved how they did Ultra Magnus. So stern, and so awesome. Jazz was well done, and cool as ever. Sentinal might be my favorite. Just because his personality is really interesting. His sense of justice is both corrupt and logical at the same time. Plus he has to be the biggest dick this side of Cyberton(or earth). Prime took me a little getting used to. He's more Orion Pax than Optimus Prime in terms of experience and leadership. But I have to admit it was really nice to see a more "War within Prime" in terms of his inner conflicts about being an effective leader against the Decepticons, as well as managing what I would essentially consider a bunch of rouges and misfits. I like that Ratchet was kind of the new Kup for the series. And Prowl is just awesome. Bumblebee is a prick, and the Dinobots were so well done, I really love them. But overall, considering season 3 has been in the works for so long, and since this whole series was in the works for a few years, it would be sad to see it cancelled after only 3 seasons. TFA has managed to turn itself around much like Beast Wars did. Beast Wars did'nt turn itself around until the end of season 1. From there, it just got deeper and crazier. Same with Animated. Season 1 was a bit meh, but it wasnt until Megatron was re-built that the series picked up, and by the end of season 2, it got even nuttier. Making season 3 potentially explosive. So, what do you think?
