One of the reasons why I buy DVDs intead of watching cable / satellite TV. I ask the question, "Why be a slave to these companies when they pull all the strings and preform this 'hokey-pokey' with the timeslot?"
I have this small chip on my shoulder for this series. And I tried to hold back the negative comments I have about it since the show IS mainly for the kids.
Not that people won't watch something around 0600 military time. But even more questions, "Do these circus clowns at the top realize that they're going to kill the series?" "Based on a popular franchise?" "Or is it already considered dead?"
(Long silence here.)
None of what happened during the series had helped matters much:
The aim toward the young audience was to straight.
Why children? Why not teenagers (since some of them LOVE cars)?
Five Cybertronians on each side instead of 20+.
Not much spotlight on the Decepticons.
The breaking of "Rule #1: You Do NOT Mess With Old School."
Fans of the 80s TF ARE NOT DEAD YET.
AND the upcoming toys look like crap compared to the 2007 Movie and Classiverse toys.
Hasbro might need to release said Classiverse in the Summer as oppose to the Fall.
