I recently decided to go back and watch all of the original G1 cartoon episodes. I've been pumped for TF:A and it got me wanting to watch the original cartoon all over again. I own the entire G1 cartoon series on DVD and I haven't watched any of the epsiodes since my childhood. I remember the original series being so awesome and IMO the greatest TF series of all time. Boy, was I wrong. Through the first 7 or 8 episodes I have to say the series pretty much SUCKS. Talk about a letdown. I look at my collection and think about my childhood and watching this cartoon and to say the least so far it's pretty damn lame. The writing/plots are terrible, the dialogue is lame and cheesy, and don't get me started on the animation. The G1 cartoon is just terrible pretty much all the way around. Does it get any better? Should I continue watching? Are there any episodes that are can't miss? If not I might just stop watching it right where I'm at. Does anyone feel the same way I do about the original G1 cartoon? TF:A just blows it out of the water. IMHO The best thing about the original G1 cartoon was the movie that came out in 1986.
