This is an old thread, but I'm bumping with my two cents. Season 3 was really the highlight of G1 for me, and Rebirth was icing on the cake. My first exposure to Transformers was from the movie, so I'd always associated TF with space opera and the gritty sci-fi elements influenced by Star Wars (exploring backwater planets, fighting off alien beasts, etc.). By the time I'd gotten around to watching Seasons 1 & 2, I knew that I was going to get a lot of Earth time in the beginning, but I had no idea that it would take so long for them to start branching out into space. And in fact, looking back at Season 2, my favorite episodes are still the ones that take place on other planets or dimensions (and that always involve Cosmos, heh). But Season 3 just hit the sweet spot for me. "The Killing Jar" is Saturday morning cartoon perfection, pushed to its darkest, most violent extreme.
The only thing that always bothered me, though, was Scourge. He hardly ever spoke, and he seemed to be Cyclonus' meek underling, despite the fact that Unicron created them as equals. The entire season, he just cowered at Cyclonus' barking orders and took abuse from Galvatron whenever anything went wrong. I say good for him that he went power hungry in the end, lol.
