What? No love for 'The Low Road'? ;)

Seriously though, I definitely agree with the number 1 spot, and the rest of the episodes are all very good. I'm not sure I'd have picked them all or put them in that order, but it's a good list and I kinda want to re-watch Beast Wars right now.

Fix'd. Glad to see it got some love. It's not a top 10 episode by any stretch, but of the two pure humour episodes, it's the best, in my opinion.

I'd also like to give a shout out to 'The Trigger' as well. It was the first two-parter in the series, it gave a lot of much needed attention to Tigatron and Airazor, and it was an early showcase of just how power hungry Blackarachnia was at first, which I really appreciated.

But I also appreciate this episode somewhat more, because I never saw it until 2002, when I was 16 and I got the whole first season on VHS. Since I didn't have cable at the time Beast Wars aired in the UK, I only ever saw it when GMTV bothered to air it on bank holidays and at October half-term, and they missed out a bunch of season 1 episodes for reasons I've never understood, and they never showed season 3 at all. I got that on video around 2000.

Another of the Mr motivator crew! Nice one!


Even on itv2 when they showed it, they only showed up to the end of the agenda. What a place to stop showing it!

Glad I'm not the only one who thought episodes were missed out of that run. I didn't see victory until channel 5 showed them probably early to mid naughties.
Beast Wars FOREVER!

I wanted to come back to this list after watching the entire Beast Wars series twice though, and then some for many episodes, to say that Feral Screams are my favorite 2 episodes of the series. They are great, with the new Dinobot with a rad design, the monster movie stuff with cheetor, Cheetor's struggles to come into his own in a new body, and the whole werewolf theme. Great episodes, I watch them regularly now they are so good.

I'm also a fan of Dark Designs with the evil Rhinox, Double Jeopardy since I love Rattrap in this story, Gorilla Warfare with Primal going mad and Dinobot at the end of the episode, and Call of the Wild with the blind leading the blind.

This show truly was awesome

"Call of the Wild" was the beast mode animal minds episode. "Dark Voyage" was the blind one.

Still like the Low Road. Anytime you have a fart you can see from space is a win...

Indeed. Two of the best episodes of Season 1, IMO.

Although to be fair, it was a blessing in disguise. Better to end the show at it's peak, wherein you thought it was about to do something different and daring... Than the cop-out that Season 3 became.

Also, a couple of people mentioned The Low Road and I involuntarily wretched... Easily the worst episode of Season 1 and it's a coin flip between that and Master Blaster as the worst episode of the entire series (including Beast Machines!).

Now although all the image links appeared broken, I agree with the list for the most part. Code of Hero is number one, without question. The main thing it has over The Agenda is the payoff is in a single episode. Also it has the single greatest death in all Transformers. The irony that a reformed "villain" made a more noble sacrifice than any Autobot or Maximal, before or since. I still think they cheapened it with Dinobot II, but he was the least of Season 3's sins.

To me, Bad Spark is still a personal favourite. Rampage was definitely what the show needed when it came to Predacon's, in light of the lacklustre Scorponok, Quickstrike etc

They are all lost due to a server mishap. Do you have any of those backed up on your end?
