ugh Ok first of all I've been showing my girlfirend all the G1 episodes, only 12 episodes left to go, and then on to Beast Wars I myself am ashamed to admit I hadn't watched Beast Wars until around this time last year. yes I was a "Trukk not Munkey" kind of guy. And now I have to admit that it is the best Transformers series...even beating G1 (after all Beast Wars is a sequel to G1) But of course I could never finish "Beast Machines" the poor characterizations for one thing, and all this "organic organic organic" I mean all this "we need more plants and such" resonates with me on the same wavelength as cramming a dozen or so humans in a Transformers franchise...it/they don't belong and should only be there for perspective ...and of course the hole turning Cybertron into a "green planet" was the ultimate slap in the face so three questions 1.) who's bright idea was this? seriously, whoever masterminded Best Machines, makes Uwe Boll seem like a creative genius 2.) Wikipiedia says "Transformers:Universe" retconned the end of Beast Machines, can anyone give me details? 3.) and finally, should I show my girlfriend Beast Machines after Beast Wars? or let her memory of Rattrap and company end with the final episode of Beast Wars?
