    How exactly does TFP have bad animation? It's the best TF show IMO in terms of animation.

    ...somebody said that BW had superior CGI to TFP.

    WHAT?

    I donno if I'd call that an "outside opinion", per-say. Other then it's outside of these forums. A lot of the people posting in that thread seem to be Trans-fans of one type or another.

    Rose tinted goggles must be all the rage these days.

    Interestingly nobody pointed out the major Optimus issue so far.

    Depending on when they watched the series they might have had a slight point. However in the last ten episodes I think the animation quality has surpassed anything TF has ever had.

    Maybe because outside the unpleasable fanbase that's how he's normally seen?

    I know, how can you lead the Autobots without a nose?

    Also:
    Season One isn't finished yet. Why does everybody assume it has? Arg.

    Prime has better animation than Beast wars with out a doubt. I will say Beast wars is more impressive when considering its quality and the time in which it was made.

    From what I've seen on Twitter, other boards etc., general opinion of Prime is pretty positive, with the occasional person that "hates it because it lacks whatever the one from my childhood had". Honestly The Hub's material is pretty praised by people, even POUND PUPPIES seems to be getting fans there and there now (and yes that freaks me out).

    Maybe they meant for it's time? (Which is certainly true)

    That's the only explanation I can think of.

    It actually is not true, as to my understanding TF prime is the most sophisticated cgi based cartoon show to date, on less something changed.:)

    Well then they're just wrong. According to TF Wiki BW was actually slightly under average for its time.

    They did have the first CG underwater sequence though.

    At least we aren't the only ones that think Miko is annoying.

    I beg to differ on what the user id, sleeping dragon, on the graphics because it's not bad.

    "Sleeping dragon" did mention that breakdown (the rock) and cliffjumper should be used more,,,,I totally agree.

    In terms of its CGI, TFP is the best looking show out there right now. In my opinion, it even beats out Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Oh, and TFP is better written too. :D

    I have to disagree with them on most of their points (except for the part about better characterization, but you can't expect that from a show that only has one season [that's about to end] currently). Although Arcee and Bulkhead have pretty awesome characterization (okay, so the show HAS focused on those two the whole season, but still).
    EDIT: I also don't care what anyone says, I disagree with the guy that said Spongestar Screampants is better than Backstab Plotscream.

    You are ignoring Starscream.

    I am disappointed.
