So? Len Wein, Patrick Barry, and Christy Marx weren't brought on board until season 2. Evan Sommers, Jules Dennis, Arthur Sellers, D.C. Fontana, Eric Torin, and oh yeah, SIMON FREAKING FURMAN weren't involved until season 3.

On a side note, Ian Weir, who wrote "Code of Hero", also gave us "Possession", which was by far the coolest season 1 episode. He should have written the whole series, if you ask me...

Sabrblade wrote:And, like I said, season 1 won the Emmy, not season 2 or 3.


And, like you said, it was for animation, not storytelling.

RhA wrote:Yeah, but season 2 had 'the agenda'.


More importantly, it had "Code of Hero" and "Transmutate".

RhA wrote:FWIW, I consider BW and BM a whole.


That's how I feel about Star Trek TOS and TAS.

Sabrblade wrote:i'm saying that season 1 wasn't awful


Go watch the first two episodes again. They're even more painful to watch than the RID recap episode >.<
I do not blame Michael Bay for crapping all over a huge part of my childhood. He just directed the scripts that were given to him. I blame Orci, Kurtzman, and Krueger, who seem completely incapable of concocting a story that even halfway makes sense.

You gotta love how they try to take over and attempt to kill the humans and then boom dinobot turns on him! As for the "autobot bible", that was just merely a prophesy. I'm not sure I would consider it a religion even though they might have one. How can you not believe something your creator told you would happen anyway? lol I wouldn't really call it a religion that they believe in primus because primus really is their creator..so I guess yeah he is a god but I don't think they exactly worship him, just respect him. Then again..they never really talked about it so we don't really know. I do know that it wasn't a bible lol.
We are so much more then mere machines, intelligent robots who think and feel. Yet, we have fell to greed and destruction by our own causes! From this moment I stand my own ground, on my own faction to achieve true unity! :CON:

I know lol. It's to bad they never elaborated on where it came from and if there was anything else. It would of caused less misconception.

Exodus alone has a 21-page excerpt of it between chapters 15 and 16 written by Alpha Trion himself.

I Bought Exiles, not knowing it was a Sequel to Exodus, and then I stupidly "Mis-Placed" It, and cannot find it.
to sum it all up, I need both...
