I'd say Orion Pax. It was a breath of fresh air seeing and hearing Optimus actually act enthused and it was an interesting plot point.

Well, until it was resent within 3 episodes.

Orion Pax was fun during the first two episodes, but everything being reset + leading to a completely boring arc utterly destroyed it for me.

Unicron was barely led up to and had no relevance later.

Relic hunt was boring except for Triangulation and Triage.

Operation Bumblebee was sorta kinda ok but it made Starscream even more of a joke than he already was.

Reviving Cybertron ending was great but the beginning and middle felt almost completely pointless. Why don't we just have the season based on the Decepticons slowly finding out the Autobots' base instead of these boring ass relic hunt only for all the relics to be destroyed and Cybertron not being revived.

Guess I'll say Darkness Rising cause the series was still fresh and it actually had consequences.
Allow me to play doubles advocate here for a moment. For all intensive purposes I think you are wrong. In an age where false morals are a diamond dozen, true virtues are a blessing in the skies. We often put our false morality on a petal stool like a bunch of pre-Madonnas, but you all seem to be taking something very valuable for granite.

Operation: Bumblebee, mostly for character bias reasons. But it was nice for him to get more than one minute of screen time per episode.

One Shall Stand, One Shall Will. I liked Megatron and Prime teaming up, no matter how temporary it was. I'm not surprised nobody has picked relic hunting yet.

Relic Hunt for sure. The first part was a little pedestrian sure but Triangulation was great, Triage was super fun, Toxicity made me love Bulkhead and Fowler more than I did before and it led into Hurt which is my favorite TFP episode so far.

I also loved the entire "all happening at once" thing they did for it, it was cool to see everything coming into it, how some parts only made sense after you saw the other ones.

Shroobmaster said it for me, bless his shrooby heart. I enjoyed the quartet of episodes, and Hurt culminated it for me nicely.
