I became a Transformers fan, and I've been watching some Transformers shows, and four of these shows became my favorites.

Transformers (G1 series):

I think it would be good if I started with the first Transformers TV-series. I checked it out and I liked it. By watching this show I found out what the Autobots and the Decepticons were doing on Earth in the first place. The first two seasons are about the Autobots (lead by Optimus Prime) fighting the Decepticons (lead by Megatron) on Earth. The third season however takes place after the events of the animated movie: most of the episodes are set in Outer Space and on Cybertron, and the Autobots are now lead by Rodimus Prime and the Decepticons are now lead by Galvatron (whom I know is still Megatron).

Good things:
- This is the first Transformers series
- I like how many ideas for Transformers there are
- The performances of Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime and Frank Welker as Megatron are great. Even the late Chris Latta as Starscream can be hilarious.

Bad things:
- Animation errors. One recurring animation error was that Starscream, Thundercracker and Skywarp were switching colors.

Favorite character:
- Bumblebee
- Optimus Prime
- Starscream
- Megatron
- Arcee
- Wreck-Gar
- Soundwave
- Brawn
- Ironhide
- Galvatron
- Thundercracker
- Skywarp
- Wheeljack
- Gears
- Shockwave
- Cliffjumper
- Ultra Magnus
- Cyclonus
- Sparkplug Witwicky
- Chip Chase
- Springer
- Octane

Least favorite character:
- If there’s one character I hate in this show, it’s Dr. Swafford, because he unleashed the Hate Plague
- I hate Dr. Morgan too for the same reason


Transformers Animated:

Now unlike in most Transformers cartoons, Optimus is not the leader of all Autobots in this show. Instead, he’s just the leader of a rescue team which consists of Bumblebee, Ratchet, Bulkhead and Prowl. The real leaders of the Autobots in this show are Sentinel Prime and Ultra Magnus. In TFA, Optimus and his team find the All-Spark, when suddenly they’re attacked by Megatron and the Decepticons. A fight breaks out and the Autobot ship gets sucked into a portal, which transports the Autobots to Earth, where they crash land into the ocean. 50 years go by and the Autobots come to the surface and find that they landed near Detroit. Here they take on the shapes of Earth vehicles and here’s also when they meet Professor Isaac Sumdac and his daughter Sari.

Good things:
- I like how this show is kind of an homage to the G1 series
- The show can be hilarious at times
- I love Tara Strong’s performance as Sari and Tom Kenny’s Starscream,
- It’s also great that Susan Blu reprised Arcee, Judd Nelson reprised Rodimus Prime and even Corey Burton returned as Shockwave
- Weird Al Yankovic is hilarious as Wreck-Gar

Bad things:
- It’s kind of a letdown for me that neither Peter Cullen returned to voice Optimus, nor did Frank Welker to reprise Megatron.

Favorite character:
- Bumblebee
- Sari Sumdac
- Starscream
- Bulkhead
- Megatron
- Arcee
- Wreck-Gar
- Ratchet
- Blackarachnia
- Slipstream

Least favorite character:
- Mr. Powell
- Lockdown
- The Headmaster


Transformers Prime:

In this show, the Autobots are already on Earth. The main Autobots in this series are Optimus Prime, voiced once again by Peter Cullen; Bumblebee, who can’t talk, instead he makes buzzing and beeping sounds, which makes him pretty much the R2-D2 of the show; Arcee, who’s now blue; Ratchet and Bulkhead. The Autobots are now under human supervision: their “boss” is called Agent Fowler. Like in many other shows, the Autobots fight Decepticons here too, lead by Megatron, voiced once again by Frank Welker. And let’s not forget the other Decepticons, such as Starscream, who still desperately wants to be leader of the Decepticons (and is now voiced by Steve Blum); Soundwave, Shockwave, Airachnid and Knockout. Like in the other shows, the Autobots have human allies in this show too: they befriend three kids: Jack, Miko and Raf. Jack is a teenaged boy who teams up with Arcee (and I can’t help but think he looks like Kevin Levin from Ben 10), Miko is a Japanese valley girl and her partner is Bulkhead, and finally Raf the nerdy boy: he’s the youngest of the kids and he befriends Bumblebee.

I think Transformers Prime is alright. It may have things I don’t like, but I still think it’s a decent show.

Good things:
- It’s great that Peter Cullen reprised Optimus Prime and Frank Welker reprised Megatron.
- While I like Chris Latta’s and Tom Kenny’s performance as Starscream, Steve Blum does a pretty good job too.

Bad things:
- It’s sad how they introduced Cliffjumper only to kill him off in the very first episode.
- Did Hasbro lose the rights to Blackarachnia? Why couldn’t they just bring her back instead of Airachnid?

Favorite character:
- Arcee
- Starscream
- Optimus Prime
- Raf
- Bulkhead
- Bumblebee
- Megatron
- Soundwave
- Wheeljack
- Ratchet
- Knockout
- Miko

Least favorite character:
- Airachnid


Transformers: Rescue Bots:

This is the first Transformers series not to feature Decepticons. It’s about four Autobots sent by Optimus Prime to Earth, to a place called Griffin Rock. These Autobots are called Heatwave, Chase, Boulder and Blades, and Optimus sent them to Griffin Rock to help the people there. The four Rescue Bots live with the Burns family: Chief Charlie Burns and his four children: Kade, Graham, Dani and Cody. Each of the Rescue Bots work with a member of the Burns family: Chief Burns is a police officer and his Bot partner is Chase, whose vehicle mode is a police car; Kade is a firefighter and his partner is Heatwave, whose vehicle mode is a fire truck; Dani is a pilot and her partner is Blades, whose vehicle mode is a helicopter; and Boulder’s vehicle mode is a bulldozer and he works with Graham, although Graham doesn’t look like a construction worker…

So I think Rescue Bots is a pretty good show too.

Good things:
- I think it’s a neat idea how the show takes a break from  the Autobot vs. Decepticon stories

Bad things:
- Can’t really say anything here.

Favorite character:
- Blades
- Dani Burns
- Boulder
- Chief Burns
- Kade Burns
- Chase
- Heatwave

Least favorite character:
- Nobody

So overall, I like these four Transformers shows.
My thoughts on the four Transformers cartoons that became my favorites:
- Transformers (1984 series)(G1)
- Transformers Animated
- Transformers Prime
- Transformers: Rescue Bots

Hmmm just saying this was nice. Yet one mistake not to sound rude. You put shit instead of ship. I apologize I just wanted to help.

Also I'm glad I was not the only one who noticed the Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp switchro's or however you spell that. :lol: ^^;
