What does G1 have to do with Digimon? If you're referring to the first series, it's called "Adventure".Blurrz wrote:New Digimon Sux. G1 is de best.
And if you're referring to the so-so quality of the English dubs, watch the Japanese versions. The English versions changed too much stuff.
But if you're referring to just the newer series in general, then may I tell you that, while Adventure was probably the best and most successful, the others are NOT bad. In fact the series that seem the most popular would be Tamers, the third series. Zero Two, the second series, while successful, wasn't really as good in quality as Adventure and Tamers were. Frontier, while probably the least popular, does its merits. Like, making all the children fight the battles themselves kept them from being the "lazy cheerleaders" that the children of the previous series tended to be.
The standalone movie, Digital Monster X-Evolution, only seemed to have one fault: no humans. BUT, in a way, that could be a good thing, as it gave more freedom to develop the digimon characters without needing rely on the human partner. Plus, the movie had soem very beautifully done CGI animation, which is quite rare consideringthat the Japanese aren't all that spectacular at CGI in general.
And finally, Savers seems to have just one, but still major drawback: subpar character development. But the plot, story, action, suspense, and emotion make up for this fault, as it was one of the most intense and realistic Digimon stories of them all (probably second only to Tamers).
Like the Transformers, I don't fully dismiss one or some stories because their quality isn't as good as an other series (like Energon, for instance - it's not my favorite, but I don't despise it); rather, I embrace everything as a whole and accept it for what it is. Some series are good, some are great, and some are just okay, but I have yet to find any "bad" Digimon series.
