    Mine is Heavy Metal War.

    Because Devastator is introduced, then falls into lava (?). But he comes back :D

    "Megatron's Master Plan" (it's a two parter). Gotta love Megatron fooling the world into thinking the Decepticons were good and the Autobots were evil. I also love how Prime lets himself be peacefully arrested and abides by the decision of the court (he's such a good citizen, lol).

    Yeah, I love this one too as well as its companion "the Revenge of Bruticus."

    Honorable mention goes to "Grimlock's New Brain" (even though the Terrorcons get their butts wooped) and "Aerial Assault" (can't beat the Giant Purple Griffin!).

    Five Faces of Darkness Pt. 4 (origin of the TFs) or Burden Hardest to Bear (fave Rodimus ep). Can't decide.

    Very hard decision. I just rewatched them all, so I have so many good ones in my head right now.
    I guess '5 faces of Darkness' - but thats more like 5 eps.
    One single episode? I guess 'Heavy Metal War' still resonates with me.

    Wow such a hard decision, too many to choose from! Those who mentioned Heavy Metal War make a strong case (I'm getting flashbacks from my youth as I distinctly remember that ep from a sticker book I had), what a great way to finish the first season. But my vote goes to War Dawn: despite being well into season two, it relied more on well developed characters and strong storytelling instead of the gimmick of "Look! New toys!!" Don't worry though, my runner up goes to...

    The Key to Vector Sigma: does it's job of introducing new toys and making us all want to ask our parents to buy them for us NOW! Decepticon cars and Autobot jets! Menasor vs. Superion! What's not to love?!

    Honorable mentions: MTMTE (duh!), anything with the Dinobots, Ultimate Doom, Starscream's Brigade, Cosmic Rust, Masquerade, FFoD, Dark Awakening + The Return of Optimus Prime *whew!* <wipes brow>

    i dunno if this was g1, but the episode where optimus got lopped up into pieces and the autobots were basically out searching for his pieces.

    Really, REALLY hard decision...I'll list a few of my favourites.

    Heavy Metal War, The Insecticon Syndrome, A Prime Problem, The Core (yes, really.), Microbots, Starscreams Ghost, Return of Optimus Prime and Ghost in the Machine.

    Yeah, and his parts were made into a red and blue robotic sewer alligator! (I can't think of the name of that one right now off the top of my head.)

    The Secret of Omega Supreme - this backstory for two of my favourites (Omega Supreme and Devastator) actually trumps the comics version for me.
