    I lumped Seasons 3 and 4 together, because, otherwise, Season 4 probably wouldn't get any votes.

    Personally, I'm leaning towards Season 3 right now, but I haven't decided yet.

    I'll go season 3/4 only because we get into the mythology a little more

    As much as I love S1, I have to give the vote to S2 simply because of the episode count and number of favorite characters that show up throughout it.

    Season 3. Hast most of my favourite characters in it, the best stories, gets more into the origins of the Transformers, has the Quintessons and overall is far superior. I wish there was more like Season 3. Season 1+2 has so many boring episodes, they could have cut most episodes and made only one season out of the two. That would have been much better. In season 3 there are only few episodes that were not so good.



    I just wish the show continued with season 4 that at least some of my toys would have appeared on the show. I waited all the time for them to appear, but they never did. If we had gotten The Headmasters and Masterforce, I would have seen them...

    Season 2, it gave us some of the best, "Golden Lagoon", "Secret of Omega Supreme", "Starscreams Brigade" the Alpha Trion series (Search for Alpha Trion, Key to Vector Sigma, War Dawn), among many, many others.

    On the other hand, it also gave us Kremzeek and BOT.

    I think I'm gonna say season 2.

    Season 3 had some gems that had interesting concepts (I loved the psychiatrist planet episode, the hate plague episodes, the episode where Rodimus gains more confidence as a leader, Grimlock getting smart and creating the Technobots) but a lot of the episodes were crap. Also I don't like how season 3 and the movie made the Dinobots seem more like pets.

    Season 3 has the superior writing and characterisation (for the most part) and screamed "toy commercial!!" a little less than the generally dismal season 2.

    For pure nostalgia purposes, season 1 is kinda fun, but I voted for season 3.

    I've got to admit though, besides the movie, none of the cartoon really "does it for me" - I'm much more of a comics guy.

    I consider the first season of the original cartoon to be the only true "season". Seasons two and three were for the most part just a slew of random episodes.

    Season 2 and season 3 are my favorite seasons while season 1 feels more nostalgic to me but I gotta go with season 3 because of a more darker tone and better episodes and the mini season 4 that was "The Rebirth" flat-out screamed a toy commercial, especially when Six-Shot showed off all of his modes which he used to defeat all the Aerialbots.

    I have to say season 2.
    The ultimate thing would be if season 2 characters were included in season 1.

    Season 1, because the more limited cast actually allowed for more character development IMO. When I rewatched these recently (ish) Season 2 onwards just seemed like toy adverts to me.

    Well, more obviously like toy adverts, you get what I mean.

    Season 2 only for "Starscream's Brigade". Season 1 is a close second.

    Season 2. Purely because I saw a lot of season 1 as a kid and had most of the key episodes on VHS, season 3 was garbage (to me) because of how much it seemed to differ from the previous seasons and the comics.

    Being positive about it, season 2 had a lot of characters that I gave a shit about as a kid, and because I didn't see the episodes too often as a youngster they still feel fresh and worth the occasional viewing to me.

    Season one.
    It remained consistent and actually had continuity. Every episode remained earthbound and not overly goofy. As much as I loved episodes like "Starscreams Brigade, Aerial Assault, and War Dawn", every episode of season one was what embodied TFs for me.
