So yeah, some spoilers here obviously. Being born in '86, I missed G1 on television but managed to get my hands on some VHS tapes and toys, and even some of the late-run comics. I never really got into Beast Wars, and I thought the whole concept of transformers that weren't kickass stuff like jets, trucks, tanks and cars was a bit stupid. In short, I firmly fell into the 'TRUKK NOT MUNKY' category and didn't look back. Then a couple of years ago I came onto this site and ended up reading Shane Anderson's 'Obsidian's Lament' and though "Wow, this isn't so suck." I still heartily rooted for the Vehicons of course, but it opened up my rather closed mind just enough so that when last week I saw a DVD of Beast Machines Season 1 I bought it. "What the hell," I thought, "Transformers is Transformers after all, and if it sucks I'll only have wasted a few quid." I finished it 2 days ago, and you know what? I bloody loved it. Sure, the CG looks rather dated now, but wow. Mass Transformer genocide? That's dark man. Internal mental torment on the part of our hero? Yup, got that. Megatron actually winning for once? Nice! Desperate fight against impossible odds? Check. One of the goods guys from the previous series turning against his comrades? Awesome! (I've never seen a full episode of Beast Wars, but I gather this Rhinox chap was a big deal). I do find Primal's constant sermonising and hippy claptrap a little annoying, but I happily put up with it if it gets me more Beast Machines. I'm now going to have to wait until I can get my hands on Season 2, and rest assured I will find it. Consider this Geewuner officially reformed through the power of Beast Machines.
