Ah, now the UK will see how disappointing the cartoon really is.

"Disappointing"! Go watch, RID, Armada, Energon and Cybertron and then call Animated disappointing.

Nicktoons is airing a new episode everyday until 7th April, when Megatron Rising airs. That's guaranteed.

I would change your news post from"will be airing" to "has aired", as the episode was shown over 6 hours ago.

Hey it's better then the Unicron Trilogy isn't it. You need to appreciate what you have. I don't want to sound rude but if anyone does like Energon or Cybetron, they have to have mental issues. I've never met someone who's liked Energon or Cybertron, while I have met people who like their Japenese counterparts, I've never met anyone that likes either show

I seen them, and am more impressed by the toys and storyline of them. I know you're not gonna argue animation on this one. :lol:

Thats all a matter of opinion. The only thing I like about animated is the toys looking exactly like the cartoon, that makes the toys awesome, but the story for Animated is my 1 and a half year old sons range of entertainment value. And AEC's toys were awesome too, the stories only slightly better IMHO, but the animation sucked too.

You just failed. Because that is quite rude. I actually did like Energon and Cybertron.

Hi, i'm Burn. Perfectly sane Transformers fan. 8)

Making a toy look like that show is not impressive.

I have quite enjoyed Animated. Its aimed at kids and its turned some of the characters into idiots but its sort of fun and has flashes of some clever ideas and neat references.

I couldnt watch Cybertron due to the terrible dubbing, I enjoyed the subtitled Galaxy Force though. Animated is something different and you just have to accept it.

Regarding the schedule.

Trying looking at Transformers Animated.com or Transformers At The Moon as the schedule was confirmed back in February

"Transformers Animated will debut at 4:30pm on Tuesday 25th March 2008 with the three part special Transform and Roll Out. The show will then air everyday for the rest of March and the whole of April. Episodes 1-16 (Series 1) will be shown across this period, repeating the episodes. "

The irony is that of all the Unicron Trilogy shows, that was the best dubbed one, with the voice actors being able to turn in strong performances due to the scripts having some work put into them. It also returned to the idea of giving characters unique voices and accents like in G1.

Having said that, Animated works hard on characterisation, so that also hints at G1, using characters that the audience would like as a way to advertise the toys (When they do release them...).

So I can assume your saying you weren't impressed with MP 01 Convoy/Optimus Prime, the masterpiece addition that was designed to look exactly like his G1 cartoon counterpart?

Well I guess people out there do enjoy Energon and Cybertron. I do have to say Energon had an awsome story plot but it was just so bad. Cybertron was just a pointless anime quest, Transformers aren't about getting tiny robots to increase power or getting god damn Cyber planet keys, it's about Autobots and Decepticons having a war. I can't even stand to watch Energon or Cybertron, it's just so god damn annoying and Prime was horrible in both series, I mean in Cybertron he couldn't even defeat Megs with his super mode, he actually needed to get help from Vector Prime just to even beat him. Animated has a great story plot and has characters you actually care for. For anyone saying how bad the series is then go right ahead, your missing the best TF series we've had in years

I prefere Transformers Animated to the last few Transformers cartoon series since Armada started. Armada was ok, but it went downhill from there for me, but Transformers Animated is one I really like, despite the Autobots seem to fight general villains more than fight Decepticons.
My fiancee' finds Bumblebee to be real annoying in this series. Does anybody else agree?

ive now seen all the episodes so far from the net, its ok i suppose, BB does irritate me beyond belief too. Ive only seen very limited parts of energon and cybertron, and i didnt find it bad at all, even though i had no idea what was going on lol. Armarda is also good, but again, ive only seen what is available on dvd in the UK. The biggest downside to animated is the artwork, i really cannot stand it, it drives me mad lol
