    I don't hate any of these series, but here's stuff I wasn't fond of in them:




    G1 - Mostly uninteresting, only a few characters I cared about

    BW - Killing Terrorsaur, not enough Tigatron or Airazor, not making Dark Glass

    BM - Character changes

    RID - Uninteresting

    Armada - Animation errors, Smokescreen being reborn

    Energon - Kicker, scripting errors, character degeneration, running out of plot, crappy animation

    Cybertron - Too few Decepticons

    Animated - Bumblebee and Rachet not being Hot Shot and Red Alert respectively

    Prime - Bumblebee, ending to Orion Pax Part 3, Optimus being uninteresting

    G1: Typical toy based cartoon. Didn't have the same enjoyment that the comics had.
    G2: Ended too early.
    BW: Untimely deaths of Scorponok and Terrorsaur.
    BM: Completely changing the personalities of Optimus Primal, Rhinox, and pretty much everyone else.
    RiD: Haven't watched enough of it.
    Armada: Kids were annoying.
    Energon: Haven't watched enough of it.
    Cybertron: Haven't watched enough of it.
    Movies: Most Decepticons were pretty much pushovers.
    Animated: Ended too early.
    Prime: It's too early to say, show hasn't ended yet. But right now, I'd say that it'd be Breakdown's death.

    G1: Mainly meh characters, some great, and forward and back on character changes during the series from episode to episode.

    BM: Nightscream, though I rather take him over Miko.

    Animated: Ending with knowledge about a fourth season.

    Prime: Having Optimus Prime making Ben Stein look like a drunk college jock at times, R2B2, and Miko. I swear I rather be lock in a room with Nightscream over her for ten hours.

    Energon: Constantly giving amnesia to characters.

    Prime: Nothing friggin happens. Important plot points get resolved too quickly. When are we going to get new Autobots already? And stop with the damn relic hunting. It's almost at the same number of episodes of Animated, yet the show hasn't accomplished nearly as much.

    I will say right now, I only hate energon.

    Sunbow/G1: Poorly executed.

    Beast Wars: None

    R.I.D.: not substantial enough.

    Armada: none.

    Energon: Animation Style (for the robots), terrible writing.

    Cybertron: Galvatron thrice, DBZ syndrome.

    Animated: Ended too early.

    Prime: Not as good as/better than previous

    EDIT: G2: G1 reedited.

    G1 - Mostly uninteresting plots for episodes.

    Beast Wars - Tigerhawk died WAY too early.

    Beast Machines - Character designs and personalities. The ending is also really, REALLY bad.

    R.I.D - None

    Armada - Minicon's ahoy!

    Energon - Shit CGI, character degeneration and just plain boring.

    Cybertron - More terrible CGI, Nemesis Breaker died too easily, drawn out stock footage.

    Animated - Ended too early resulting in a rushed ending.

    Prime - Boring. CGI also looks plain.

    G1: I liked the cartoon but the comics had better story and character development. Also season 2 was extremely goofy.

    Headmasters: Cybertron being blown up means that the characters fought and died for nothing. That and Daniel got too much screentime.

    Beast Machines: Nightscream.

    Armada: The annoying kids who serve no purpose.

    Energon: Kicker

    Animated: Ended way too early, ... and there should've been less human villians.

    Prime: Airachid's Insecticon army being easily beaten, which is strange when just one Insecticon was too much for Arcee and Megatron.

    Animated- The playschool artistic style. Made the show unwatchable. It's the only one I'll list because it seemed perfect in every other way but the style made me want the show to end so they'd never attempt such a stylistic crapfest again.

    I don't hate any series. I'm not a really big fan of TFP because I find it overall boring.

    Beast Wars - too much time in animal modes at the start

    Animated - human villains

    Prime - too much action

    Bayverse - crude humor

    Beast Wars: The Rhinox + Beans episode.

    Beast Machines: Nightscream.

    Robots In Disguise: No seriously. Fuck the name "Landfill." Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of your enemies than a robot named after where you put your garbage.

    Armada: The majority of the toys

    Energon: The majority of the show

    Cybertron: WHEN WILL THE DAMN RACE PLANET ARC END.

    Animated: Honestly? The human villains. Great idea, and for the first season and the Swindle episode of Season 2, they were fantastic. But then they dropped off the face of the earth during season 3, which was unfortunately the final season. It's a shame, as they were full of potential. :( 

    Prime: Airachnid quickly went from a horrifying character to something that I hope stays dead. Here's hoping.

    Movies: I'm tempted just to go "lol ROTF" on this one, but something bothered me a lot more than that: The Dark of the Moon toyline's smaller scale in terms of toy size, complexity and variety (which in retrospect was total foreshadowing to the current state of the toyline) annoyed the hell out of me. It's a shame that the movie lines won't get one final appropriate send-off with the way the lines are going. One day we'll get a definitive Ironhide toy. :( 

    Timelines: You know, I liked the concept of the earlier BotCon stuff. New characters that are redecos of current toys, worked into the currently ongoing fiction. But then once FunPub took over, no offense to them on this one, the creativity in terms of new characters for the most part plummeted. We still have the occasional new character such as Flareup and Landshark, but the majority of the toys now are "Here's a new Optimus Prime!" "Here, have one of the seeker decos" or "Here's the same character you know and love, but on the opposite team." It's a shame, and I really hope one day BotCon steps up their game in terms of what their exclusives are based on.

    G1 - Loved it. Could have used more lambos.

    Headmasters - English dubb, hilarious. Need more lambos.

    Beast Wars
    Beast Machines
    anything with a beast... HORRIBLE. The only TF's I want turning into animals are Dinobots and casseticons.

    Armada - Sideswipe. Worse. Sideswipe. Ever. The rest of them needed more lambos.

    Animated - Ended too soon. Needed more Jet twins and needed more lambos.

    Movies - Loved the movies. Needed more bot screen time and Sunstreaker.

    Prime - Needs lambos.
