Seriously? Animated was so obviously aimed at children, Prime is for a more mature audience.

not like Animated dealt with PTSD, the equivalent of child soldiers, genetic experimentation, loss, betrayal, espionage, the subject of corrupt governments, and killed off plenty of dudes of its own, nope.

Animated may have skewed younger but it still handled mature topics, and its plotting was better. Prime may have had more money thrown at it for animation, and may be aimed at an older audience, but its plots have been repetitive and poorly handled.

I was really hoping that this would be a 4-5 season series. TFP had enough story for that much, honestly. Here's to hoping that the final season doesn't screw us all over and leave us with immense levels of disappointment.

You're talking about tone, not writing quality. Preference of tone is completely subjective, so if you can't stand the more kid-friendly bent of Animated I get why you like Prime better.

Writing quality, on the other hand, can be measured, and I think Animated was much better than Prime in that respect. I know there are reasons for it, but Prime frequently wrapped up potentially interesting ongoing plot lines before they could go anywhere, and did so in a way that was not satisfactory at all. It also failed to make the comparatively few characters really interesting, aside from the precious few like Knock Out and Starscream. Animated made much better use of the time that it had to work with. It had a better understanding of how to abandon a side story early, sometimes by not wrapping them up and just leaving us at a cliff hanger that wouldn't hurt too badly, and each of its many characters got to stand out in a way that left a lasting impression even if they only appeared in one scene.

I personally like the tone of both shows, but I know once Prime is over I will never go back and watch it the whole way through again, while I have watched the entire run of Animated from beginning to end three times so far, as well as individual episodes several more times.

Comparing Animated and Prime maybe isn't a fair test. Try comparing it to a different show with the same tone. There are much better shows than Prime in its category, but few that show the same level of careful crafting as Animated among shows aimed at that audience.

Atop of what CaptainMagic said, I think Prime and Beast Machines are better to compare rather than Animated and Prime. They're both dark in tone, they were both done in CGI, and they both have limited casts.

Big difference being, BM's limited cast was due to there actually being no other characters floating around that they could pull in, Megs had all the sparks.

Prime however ... there's a Universe full of them out there, but we're stuck with the same core group of characters because Hasbro don't want to invest money into new characters. (Quite insulting to children really to think they wouldn't be interested in characters other than the Red and Yellow crew)

Yeah, he didn't actually break out into a dance session in the actual episode.

It was when Megatron later went inside his head and re-watched that scene with a new disco moment added in, courtesy of Screamer's fantasizing. :P

This is usually the part where I boo and hiss at someone but I doubt it'll help any. Another good show ended because SOMEONE thinks it's run it's course...no, no it really hasn't you only think it has. Not to mention if I don't see a combiner or dinobot this FINAL season I'm going to be greatly dissapointed.

Oh man! It seems like only yesterday I was complaining about an animated series that looked like the movies. Now I'm complaining that it's almost over. :sad:

So long as the series lives up to that trailer, it should be worth it.
