    I was really glad that they weren't taking over the show. One of my biggest problems with Animated was that it often seemed like the Autobots were co-stars in the Sari Sumdac show.

    Jack seems like the least believable of the three. I mean honestly, you'd have to have a pretty awesome and busy life to feel as meh about giant robots as he does.

    Raf and Miko are awesome though.

    I like them. I know a lot of fans will still hate them just for being the human kid characters, but I think they work so far. no where near as annoying as previous TF kids.

    In what way was he at all "angsty"?

    Jack: I liked him. He was pretty cool. I see him as almost kind of a cooler, calmer Sam Witwicky.

    Miko: I liked her, but not nearly as much as I liked Sari Sumdac from TFA. I'll need to see more of her before I can pass final judgment.

    Raf: Meh. Just...meh.

    Agent Fowler: Ernie Hudson? :bay  That is all.

    So far so good. The teenage son is the one everyone relates to. His bot is Arcee. Which is the smallest and the fastest bot. She is lean and mean...

    The fast and talkative asian girl is cute and fiesty. Her bot is Bulkhead. Who reminds me of a cross between G1 Ironhide and Micheal Clark Duncun...

    And the boy genious is helpful to Ratchet. I like them all so far...

    The military man is fine. Ernie Hudson is fine with me...

    If Transformers are known about on Earth. The military has to know about them... The whole movie NEST story was awesome... This can play off of that idea... Human Alliancees...

    The fact that kids are connected to Transformers is a constant through the history of the brand. Dont fix what aint broke...

    Not so much critiquing as just inquiring.

    I don't know man haha, I was just trying to say anything other than what I first thought and just replaced it with on my first post, just another teen boy character, trying to give it some accent, somehow.

    I like Raf, he's the best human IMO.

    Miko's okay, I'll have to see more episodes to get a better opinion. I don't like her voice though. To me it seems "broken," the syllables don't seem to flow well, reminds me a bit of a voice synthesizing program.

    Jack, I like the least. I knew his personality was going to be this way the moment I saw the character model.

    Fowler seems like the stereotypical government agent, meh.

    For a guy who just got thrown into a conflict involving giant alien robots...Raf sure is taking it well.

    I like all of them, Miko and Raf are tops, then Fowler, then Jack. Not that I don't like Jack-i think he's rather clever with 'robot fight club' and the clever use of words around his mom and Arcee. Speaking of which, is Mrs. Darby a nurse? Thought she was wearing scrubs-thats interesting, I wonder if it will come into play at some point later in the series. Anyone else catch that?

    I like 'em.

    Jack is pretty straight foward, Miko is just having fun and Raf is adorable.

    Fowler idk much about still but his voice is awesome so I guess I like him too.

    I despise Miko. The minute the Autobots come back from a suicide mission she immediately asks if they did anything "cool". Is seeing one of your allies warped, mutated, and mutilated before your eyes cool? Is nearly dying cool? Is realizing that your planet is a barren wasteland and that you can probably never return cool? Hmph...No Respect. As for Jack and Raf they're both alright and believable. As for Agent Fowler, he's pretty cool. Kind of reminds of a less dickish version of that guy from RotF who everyone hated. Not as much as Ramon but he's up there

    I couldn't agree more, Jack showed some humanity and yanked her out of there.. that scene with that girl was just a bad call and made her look like a total piece of trash, which was not necessary or right.

    I think she was just overly excited to see a bunch of giant robots. Something tells me she's going to grow as a character in the same way Sari did...Just without the actually being a robot part.

    Oh I am sure they will, they usually do a good job of that with Tf series of making the humans relax eventually, and maybe I was being a little harsh, but never the less.. it was a bad scene.

    It wasnt really a bad scene-I liked her reaction, as it showed that they dont really understand the gravity of the situation. Dont forget all she saw was Optimus Prime flip through a flame-spewing portal. How does she know what just happened? I mean, if i saw Optimus Prime flip through a flaming glowing portal and land right in front of me I'd be pretty psyched. It allows for character growth
