- Weapon: Blunt Force Battle Clubs
Ok, so here's my conundrum. I grew up with and LOVE G1. I was six years old when the TV series and toys came out: Perfect, spot on target audience. By the time the G2 stuff started coming out, I was "Too old" to like toys and cartoons so I stopped paying attention to Transformers. Fast forward to 2007, I like most other kids of the 80's went to see Bayformers, and it was so-so, but did nothing to re-ignite my love of the franchise.
Fast forward to now. I randomly fell in love with toy collecting again, and Transformers in general. Re-watching G1 is great because of the nostalgia and cell-based animation, and since TF:Prime was the newest incarnation, I gave that a shot too; and loved it! So with both ends of the current series covered, I naturally want to get into everything that's transpired during my long hiatus. Beastwars complete series is on netflix! Perfect!
But..I just cant get past how much it shows it's age. The sound effects and CGI are straight out of Everquests era, and I just am unable to just enjoy it for what it is. So tell me; is beastwars the G1 of the generation after mine? Is it beloved because it was what people grew up with and their nostalgia glasses let them overlook the age of the series? I hear great things about it from just about everyone on every board, and don't want to miss out, but it's tough to get psyched up about.
