    Why the sudden new threads full of hate-fest? Bad day? G1 steal your lunch money? Bring the joy. Tell us what you loved about the series instead.
    If those two single things are what define your dislike of the G1 series then I really don't understand you as there are far worse things in G1 than those to highlight.
    Personally I enjoy it, warts and all.

    My one and only Gripe about Transformers G1 is the "GI Joe Run" shots you see in every battle scene where A group of Transformers will Charge in an orderly Horizontal line into battle Just like Duke and the Joes do in the GI Joe intro, and they seem to also share Run Cycles with The Real American Heroes.
    I know its a Tactical thing To run as a Coordinated Line and that Animation companies (Like Sunbow) Recycle run cycles like that all the time in order to save cost on animation (See Disney for some pretty blatant examples of Animation-Recycling)
    but everytime I see the Autobots Run Into battle as a wall of robots and lazerfire, I always think aloud "GI JOEE!!!!"

    I only hate the fact that for the most part they were public heroes and not really robots in disguise and that it was so easy for the Decepticons to get the Autobots to leave earth.

    If you mean the scene where the Decepticons get drunk then gtfo. That's one of the greatest scenes in the history of our franchise.

    But seriously, it was an older cartoon. It's going to have it's problems, so there's no logic in nit picking at it. Accept that it is the basis of everything TF's today and move on.
