    Yeah. I'd really recommend anyone not liking it by episode two to give it another couple of episodes before you make up your mind.

    Isn't that poll a bit oddly structure for the question? By splitting up like it and love it, you're making it seem closer than it really is. If it were divided into Like it, Indifferent, Dislike it; than as of this post there would be 75.8% Like it, 16.13% Indifferent, 8.06% Dislike it.

    To me that would give a more accurate measure of how the fandom on this board feels about the show. The vast majority like it.

    That Guy's message made me read the question again.
    "How do you feel about RID2015 so far?" - Then I voted for "Love It".

    I'm indifferent, borderline dislike. I just can't get into the Decepticons being beast type things with no real bot form. Hopefully it'll grow on me. I was really put off by that Underbite character. To me it was like they were trying too hard to make him dumb/funny. I've seen though episode 5. I'll still watch the show, but I'm not blown away.

    I like it. But I really want them to raise the stakes soon, Expand the cast. (Drift, Jazz?, Minicons?)
    and make the cons more organized. Also Optimus Primes spirit walk with the primes seems interesting but we have barely gotten that nine episodes in.

    Some of the best stuff has been the shows smart humor with fixit glitching out and the bots inadvertently destroying denny's collection.
    The action set pieces have felt a bit formulatic in how they catch the bad guys. But I really liked the car chase at the end of the fifth episode.

    One subtle thing is how the new con characters can be references to other parts of the lore. Like Chopshop being a combiner team, and Hammerstrike being a sharkticon.
    Hopefully they will do more of that. Like maybe some speed planet or junkion guys.

    It's alright as Transformers goes. The show is pretty harmless in what it does.

    Of course there are parts I like, other parts I don't. But overall I think it's decent. Now if it did a bit more in the world building department, that would really grip me.

    Love it so far. Especially when Steeljaw's onscreen~

    I'll admit I'm far from the most grown-up grownup and often like the more cartoony styles though. As long as it's not... kindergarten-y, and so far RiD hits that balance for me quite nicely.

    I really like the decepticons in this series.
    Looking forward to see more.

    It's much better than I thought it might be, but not as good as I would like. Despite LOOKING pretty ridiculous, some of the Decepticons have been surprisingly cool (REALLY liked Chop Shop)

    I fucking love RID....not only more than Prime but I think Animated too.

    Time will tell if I prefer it over Beast Wars...I doubt it but who knows.

    Not sure yet. I watched the first 3 episodes and I love them so far, but obviously, it's only 3 episodes.

    I absolutely adore it. Huge breath of fresh air after the disappointment that was Prime. Everyone is so full of life, and I don't hate most of the Autobots in this series (seriously, the only Autobots I cared about in Prime were Arcee and Smokescreen; the rest, especially Optimus, could've died for all I cared. Oh, but they never did, since the show only slaughtered Decepticons..... :banghead:  And no, I don't count Optimus' "sacrifice" as a true loss for the Autobots' side. Nor do I count Cliffjumper for that matter).

    Looking forward to seeing some of the cast members from Prime in Season 2 though, especially Arcee and Knock Out (would love to see Shockwave, Soundwave, and Starscream too, but I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high for them).

    Also, Strongarm is a bara babe. <3

    I've only seen the first three episodes so far, and I'm actually really enjoying both the main cast, including the humans, and the variety of Decepticons, even if I'm having some cognitive dissonance with the idea that Cybertronian fauna can become conscious criminals.

    EDIT: Also more naive rookie cop Strongarm and Green/Black carefree Grimlock, plz.

    I really dislike the framerate inconsistencies (Sometimes the show is super smooth, other times it's horribly choppy), but other than that I really enjoyed the first two episodes.
