I'm kinda afraid to admit this. I'll probably get flamed because it isn't the popular sentiment around these parts. But, the 1986 Movie and the TV show right after it (seasons 3 & 4) were my favorite part of the G1 cartoon. The 1986 movie and the cartoon that followed was so much more broad. We got to see things outside of planet earth. The characters were so much more diverse and were painted with a broader brush as well. The first couple of seasons of the G1 cartoon were the same old thing every week. The Transformers were stuck on earth basically the whole time. Therefore their world wasn't very diverse and the characters weren't as deep. It felt like "Transformers in a box" Or "Transformers in a fishbowl" that's how small their world seemed. Now don't get me wrong. I still love and enjoyed season 2. That season was when the writers and animators finally "got it" But, I like the 1986 movie and the cartoon afterwards even better. Is that wrong? Who else out there feels the same?
