    Um, did you read my first comment? Where I asked very nicely for you guys to be, you know, respectful? Because, like, some people DO like this series. I mean, if I went around saying 'G1 is shit.' I would get my ass handed to me on a gold platter. Just because most don't like the series doesn't mean no one likes it. I don't mean to offend but it's thing like that, that start huge arguments and end up getting the board cancled. It's also very offensive. Can't you just say 'I really don't like this series. I don't think it will get very far.'? Come on it's not hard to be respectful.

    I REALLY don't mean to sound rude, or pushy, or mean, so if I do, sorry.

    Also this series really isn't made for us we're not meant to like it, the fact some of us do is a bonus.

    As for it only lasting one season, well its the most watched show on cartoon network by young boys at the moment, with a look that appeals to young kids, and is riding on the coat tails of the movies success. I think we're stuck with this, like it or not.

    I like it a lot, Bumblebee cracks me up. But, who am I to say? I'm only 15. Lawl. I heard they already have a second season planed and posibly a third. One can hope, I guess.

    A little advice - try to watch it as if names like "Ratchet", "Optimus", "Megatron" were nothing for you. A completely new series, with completely new characters.

    P.S. "Transformers: Animated" are not on YouTube only. If you search good enough, you can find them available for downloading...

    That pretty much what it's supposed to be. It has no true connection the G1 other than character names. They are not the same chacaters. They just share the same name. Doesn't stop me from likeing it.

    A strange thing... Can anybody tell me why Hasbro always uses the same names??? Even translating japanese Transformers series Hasbro always re-names characters. "Grand Convoy" "Fire Convoy" or "Ginrai" - if he transforms in a red truck, he will be called "Optimus Prime" in US version anyway.

    WHY???

    Brand recognition, and another big reason is so they keep the copywright to certain names.

    Well, if you have On Demand you can watch it there(That's what I've been doing and I nearly have the two episode on it memorized. They updated it the week after a new episode comes on every week). Have you tried Veoh? You might find it there. Other wise just look around Yahoo and Google.

    I just stated an opinion. I'm very blunt, so don't take things so seriously. G1 was mostly terrible as well. G2 after Prime's death was instantly a better cartoon but it wasn't popular because people latch onto what they grew up with. It went downhill quickly because of that. I'm looking at this new cartoon from an artist and parent point of view. If it doesn't go beyond the stupid jokes then it will fail.

    I got to see TWO new episodes this week! One on 'On Demand'(Total Meltdown) and one I recorded(Thrill of The Hunt)! Thrill of the Hunt is Ratchet based and Arcee apears in a flashback. Pretty wicked, if you ask me. But then again, I'm a child at heart(Or am I just still a child? Lol.)
    I still love it.

    I think that Lockdown is part of the core of Ratchet's grumpiness.
    Personally I love the episode that introduced the Dinobots since it just made Grimlock more adorable in my mind. lol.

    Grimlock is something else, lol.
    "Cars bad."
    "Robot cars worse!"
    "Nature good."
    *Bird poops on him*
    "Stupid nature!"
    Lawl, he cracks me up. Even though he's supposed to strike fear into the heart(But when has he done that?) They haven't put his episode on 'On Demand' yet.

    And Bumblebee has height issues.

    Lol. I doubt that he'll strike fear into anyone's hearts unless there happens to be someone with a massive phobia of dinosaurs.
    Man I can't wait for his episode to air. I want to see what the others look like in robot form. (With colour. lol)

    It amuses me that 'Total Meltdown' wasn't aired in the U.S. because of steroids and wrestling references. BB got really mad when someone said little or short when they weren't talking about him at one point. I wonder if they're going to continue the short jokes or if it was only for that one episode.

    Oh wait, I remember the episode. xD
    I just can't wait till they pop up again and show Swoop's and Slag's robot forms. lol

    I think I would have busted a gut if BB's voice actor was Vic. He'd be even closer to Ed than before. lol

    Ed. Yes. Durrrrrrr... Iz zo zupid. :3 I said Al. Dur dur durrr. Forgive me, I'm more than half way through a 2 liter mountain dew, ON MY OWN. WJDXSDI NCIIIDNCJCBNJCBJVBFDJVFBVJD. Caffine, at 10 PM IS NOT A COMBINATION.

    If Bee and Ed got to gether they could have a midgit fight! Except Bee's a GIANT MIDGET and would still tower over Ed and Ed would be all like biten' his ankes and all 'NOM NOM, I'LL CHEW YAH' DOWN AND EAT YUR GIANT MIDGETNESS.' and Bee would be all like 'WHUT DAT? IS DAIR SOMETIN ON MAH LEG? IS IT A MOSQUITO?' and Ed blow up and starting his head all 'NOM NOM. LET SEE YOU LAUGH WITOUT A BRAIN. NOM NOM. >:3' And Bee just laugh until Ed stops 'nom nom'ing on his head and pulls out a crane and starts going 'crane game' on Bee's @$$. Then Bee would scream like a girl and start spazing and seizering and all 'NOOOOOOOOOOO, NOT TEH CRANE.' TIS IS ALL EPIC WIN.

    Wow Di... Movin.. that came out of nowhere.. lol.. Theres nothing wrong with drinking Mt Dew at 10 pm... in my opinion.. Though I used to drink at least a 12 pack a day.. sometimes even more.. and my dentist was all like.. what the hell?? ? You haven't been here for 10 years? You drink a 12 pack of dew a day? You only brush once a day? You don't floss? He passed out. Then he checked for tartar and cavities and was like.. holy cow.. you only have 5 cavities and no tartar? He passed out again. I had to slap him to get him awake again, and was like.. ok.. you gonna be my dentist or be a lil sissy.. Needless to say he told me I had to switch to Diet Mt Dew, brush twice a day, use some sort of gum pick thing, and floss every day... I did all that except only floss about once a week.. lol

    Whats with all the dinobots and Ed Edd and Eddie nom noming or whatever? I've only seen like 1 or 2 of their shows and thought they were the dumbest kids.. well.. I dunno.. they are up there with Beavis and Butthead.. but yeah.. I haven't seen that episode you were talkin about.. I've seen the hour long special for the animated series.. and at the very end of the episode is when Prime asks where baby's come from.. I thought his expression was odd. I mean.. how could a robot understand that type of thing anyways.. And how would Sari know all about that at her age? Especially since some people think 12 year olds shouldn't know about that type of thing since they think all kids are innocent and naive. I dunno how old Sari is, but I'm guessing around 12.. whats with the crane? Bee is short, but didn't see him having a complex at all. Patrick.. errr.. Bulkhead.. is just fat.. its like.. uhh.. what the heck.. we can't have fat Transformers.. lol..
