Might get in the way of their 24/7 Teen Titans Go marathon.
... They're still doing that shit?
I don't think so, and that's not to put down Beast Wars or Animated; I love them both (Prime is a little more nuanced). I think that they have different strengths, but I hold G1 in the highest regard for several reasons:
3) Stories / Writing
7) Marketing / Sales
9) Child Accessibility
Now my opinion on all of these things are subjective and you can have a totally different take, and that's okay. I think that G1 did all of these things very well, if not always consistently. Taken as a whole, G1 does these more for me than any other series.
Additionally, I think Cyberverse hits many of these criteria better than Breast Wars, Animated, and Prime. We'll have to wait and see how well Cyberverse stands the test of time, but I think we'll still look back on it fondly after it ends. It really is fabulous.
I think if I had to provide an overall personal ranking:
3) Beast Wars
6) War For Cybertron
There are some other series like the Unicron Trilogy that I haven't seen enough of to rank.
TLDR: So, in conclusion, I still think Cyberverse is the best series since G1.
Why's that if you don't mind me asking.
We always hear that Transformers isn't taken serious by Japanese fans the way Gundam is. Making the shows into satires sure isn't going to change that view.
So, they are going to air 'movies' on Netflix. Considering the shows are the 10 minute variety. Does that mean the 'movies' will be 40 minutes long.
maybe longer since, broken up as eps, they were meant to be the fill in for a season 4, so 40 min very possible, 50-60 is also not out of the question either
How many movies are there going to be?
I just hope the next series goes back to normal length episodes.
Just two I believe, and that seems to be it for Cyberverse.
I remember hearing that the nick show could still be 11 minutes.
Frankly it's probably a response to the stations just putting out there show whenever the fuck and places like Singapore getting Season 3 a year before everyone else did
No trailer, but we do know it is coming in July, no exact date yet, but based on the other 2 series, I'm guessing it will be towards the end of July. I watched all of Cyberverse it's not my thing. I'll probably give these short films (probably what they will be) a watch for completion sake, but that's about it. I dont expect them to be good. Also I dont have high hopes for the Nick series.
I grew up with the original series, and it is the one I truly enjoy the most however from a technical standpoint I have to rank them as:
2. Beast Wars
3. The Transformers
Then all the rest are variable. I tend to enjoy the Japanese shows such as Headmasters, Masterforce, Victory, and Car Robots more than most fans. I go against the grain in that I really dont like Animated. The writing was ok, but the character designs and animation were awful. I'd rather listen to those as a radio shows.
It makes me sad because I really enjoy Transformers as an Animated series, but really exceptional ones only come along about once every decade or so. The Netflix show had potential, but the poor writing and awful Voice direction really take me out of it. It's a step up from Prime Wars, but still not great. I'm still waiting for the next exceptional Transformers show since Prime ended in 2013.
“Nickelodeon and Hasbro’s Entertainment One (eOne) announced in February that have partnered to co-produce an original animated Transformers series (26 half-hour episodes), based on the iconic global property. In the action-comedy series, a new species of Transformers must find their place and purpose among Autobots, Decepticons, and the human family that adopts them. The series will premiere exclusively on Nickelodeon in the U.S. in 2022 before rolling out internationally.”
As much as I don't like any of the Netflix exclusive TF content so far, I'm glad TF isn't on Cartoon Network anymore. Outdated television timeslot standards added. TF has a long shitty history with Cartoon Network with being put in the 6:00 deathslot, and rushing the shows overall to even meet the schedules. That and CN being practically "Teen Titans Go!" network from the last time I ever watched it. How anyone/creator would want their series on that network now is mind boggling.
So Cyberverse might break the 3 season curse.
It depends on your goal. If you want to offer a compelling sci-fi or action series aimed at all types of fans, then no CN is not for you. If you want a mind-numbingly dumb comedy series that is poorly animated, haphazardly slapped together, and is enjoyed by kids with ADD, then CN is perfect for you. CN used to be my favorite channel for much of the 90's and early 2000's. But I haven't watched it for nearly a decade for that very reason. It killed too many good shows, and now is worthless.
Dreamworks Dragons (Rescued by Netflix)
Star Wars Clone Wars (Rescued by Netflix, then Disney +)
Young Justice (Rescued by HBO Max)
Beware the Bat
Justice League Action
And that's a big if...
But if Netflix Kids can bring in much larger numbers than expected, than Execs and Brand Managers can point to that as a reason to continue or expand the toyline. Then if toy sales also see a bump, then someone will tap Randolph Heard on the shoulder and say, "Hey, do you think you can come up with 10 more episodes to support this line?"
lmao what a surprise
Both Rescue Bots and RID2015 already broke that curse though.
Yeah same. The only thing that kept me coming back to CN really was Regular Show, the last thing I genuinely enjoyed on that network start to finish. "Serious" cartoon creators shouldn't go to CN anymore anyways because of their bullshit tendency to cancel shows that then fall into their intellectual property hell. It's even happened to another show recently called Infinity Train. Bear you I haven't watched it, but from what I heard it was decent only to be cancelled and the creator didn't have a word in the matter. IMO that's happened way too many times on that network, it makes me wonder why creators don't think twice before pitching anything to them.
3 season curse kinda applies more to series that ended too early or where it we’re not satisfied with the ending
