    It's become that way because you touch yourself at night.

    Breakdown died, people linked to TVTropes, and now everybody decided the show is shit.

    No seriously that's exactly what happened.

    Yeah, Season 2 blows.

    Killing Breakdown, allowing spider-bitch to live, pointless writing, ruining Orion Pax, and so on.

    Season 1 is better.

    I keep saying TVTropes is gonna kill us, but nobody listens. If one more person mentions Conservation of fucking Ninjitsu to explain the Insecticons, I will strangle them.

    I also don't agree with this thread. I warn you, I know Aaron enough to know that this is the kind of thread he locks because it's spammy. Explain yourself instead of making a poll with loaded answers.

    I agree with this.

    I thought the show started going downhill with the Unicron arc. Now most of the episodes are just straight out mediocre or worse.

    Not only that...it's all been said and done before....there's been so many threads witchin' about this topic that it's become redundant to the core.

    Complaints about complaints are redundant beyond the core.

    I appreciate your civility. However, a "I think Prime is starting to blow. Here's why" thread would be more original than a straight up "Prime sucks" thread. I could buy ten'a these with a Zimbabwean dollar.

    Option 5: Some people's expectations seem way to high or have put far too much stock in their own presumptions of what the show should be instead of what they are presented.

    I vote this one.

    Except the poll assumes everyone does not like the show now. Meanwhile the poll on this thread shows that 73.05% of people participating on these forums think favorably of the series, 20.87% think its mediocre, and only 6.09% think negatively of the show.

    Some people expect way too much out of kid's shows. You want deep, involved plots - go watch Game of Thrones.

    I've been pleased with every episode I've watched. This is the one show I don't want to miss every week.

    Except episodes like Armada were pure shit that made no sense. They need to at least make sense.

    Darkness Rising was good because stuff had to happen, characters needed to be established as soon as they appeared. When the actual series started, they stopped making stuff happen and just kept "building" stories instead, but instead of paying off, they just use that to build more stories. The whole series is a waiting game with constant static plots, always developing characters who decide to not develop instead of making them more alive, and bringing up new ideas to toss them for more building.

    People expect what the show sets itself to be. The show set up itself to be dark and serious with the death of Cliffjumper 3 minutes in but then they never followed through its own example.
