    The reason that G1 Transformers stood above other cartoons like He-man, Thundercats and Go-Bots was because of its dialogue it was more mature and as a result even teenagers watched it.

    This show feels more like Go-bots quality.

    And what the hell did they do to Grimlock! It's like taking Cookie Monster and making him an Aristocrat!

    The look of pain and betrayal when Optimus couldn\'t answer the question about Megatron, amazing.

    Really wasn't expecting Cheetor to be the way he is. I thought he was going to be a typical reserved, stoic being of immense power. So this is a nice subversion I suppose. More or less figured the Seekers were doing something Starscream related, but was nonetheless surprised to see him walking around again so soon. Overall the show's really hit its stride I feel. Can't wait to see where else they go with it!

    That's quickly becoming the running theme of Cyberverse, subverting expectations, and frankly I welcome it.

    I have to admit that the writers are throwing a few curveballs, and while I don't expect adult level maturity for the show, I do wish it felt like there was a bit more tension or threat. The characters have some great personalities, but they're all incompetent and silly. We can get by without spastic slapstick, guys. Kids will keep watching even if someone doesn't fall over every 10 seconds.

    I hope for some many more Beast Wars things to come. I Love having Cheetor in the show.

    Really? When was the last time you actually watched G1? Because allow me to pull out a number of choice quotes:

    “Fire-******ant foam! Our circuitry's been shorted out.”

    “Female Autobots? I thought they were extinct!”

    “He's blown his vocal components. I guess that makes me, Starscream the new leader!”

    “A booby trap that actually catches boobies.” - Being said by Optimus Prime no less.

    And I'm not trying to bash the G1 cartoon here. I love it loads. But make no mistake it does not have "mature" writing. I'd say Cyberverse ranges from being about as silly as G1 (which is not a bad thing) to sometimes being quite dark and mature and generally having a much better grasp of characterisation.

    Cheetor went from being so cool and mysterious to being so annoying and lame.

    No, no it was not.

    I didn't once say it was perfect. I said G1 was better than its competitors.

    Cyberverse is the silliest ever, for the single reason that the characters don't take each other seriously. This is intended for an even younger audience. All the reasons I don't like it could be sumarized by me not being the target audience. I just watch it because the models are nice and colorful and the animation is good, but I have no pretension of incorporating anything from this series into my own understanding of the Transformers mythos as a whole. Cyberverse is good, but ultimately doesn't count.

    I thought that question about the file toward Megatron was blatantly unfair because for all we know Optimus was reading a smartphone-like device and he REALLY wouldn't have known while Optimus's question was something of public record and reasonably fair.

    And the kicker was Optimus DIDN'T know, either.

    I don't like this Cheetor. The BW version it was because he was young and inexperienced; this one comes off as having no common sense because he's missing a few screws.

    Cyberverse has not done an episode where the Transformers go back in time to medieval times, or an episode where Blitzwing takes over a football stadium, or one where the Transformers get sent to a planet where they are the size of toys. Until those have been topped, G1 will forever hold the distinction as the silliest show ever. Beast Wars, known for some of the best mature writing in Transformers also had an episode about Rhinox farting.

    And I don't really understand the "intended for a younger audience". It is intended to be a fairly lightheated show. Why does that automatically mean a younger audience? Adults should only enjoy very serious, dark stories? This show is primarily a comedy, like RID 2001 was. And there's nothing wrong with enjoying that for what it is.

    This is a perfectly fine cartoon geared towards children.

    With that said, I thought the part where Cheetor introduces the armor gimmick was funny. Optimus and Megs reaction was the same as mine. "Huh!?" Hasbro should have gone full meta and had Cheetor voiced by John Warden. Then every time a new character or gimmick is introduced Cheetor gives dialogue about said thing, to awkward and bewildered looks and response from the other Autobots.
