I still watch and enjoy the old G1 cartoons-- by far my favorite Transformers series. I know it's not perfect, and there seem to be times that the creative staff aren't sure where to go, but it was ground-breaking then and still holds up better than a lot of the TV shows I watched as a kid. For a while, I actually considered the third season my favorite, especially after it ends with the Return of Optimus Prime. I liked the darker tone and the deeper exploration of the core characters and mythology-- you could see that they brought in writers from G.I.Joe here and that they really pushed to have a core cast (something that helped Beast Wars a lot). But it was also a little out there, losing the strengths of the first season. I now like the second season best because it combines what I like most about the other two: the great characters, focus on earth and "robots in disguise" of the first, and the darker, experimental writing of the third. The second season seems to have fewer annoying animation errors as well.


The animated movie will always have a special place in my heart as well. When my wife and I were first dating, I made her watch that silly video until she learned to appreciate it. It wasn't intentional torture, or anything-- it just worked out that that was the movie I was in the mood to see after we watched one of her chick flicks. Like lox and bagels, comfort food. :) She later bought me an Armada Unicron and even a 20th Anniversary Optimus Prime. We had "You got the Touch" at our wedding and today she is honestly excited about Revenge of the Fallen (chicks dig the Bay movies).

Recently I haven't watched G1 episodes in a while. I found a ringtone with a familiar tune on Myxer.com. It's called "Old School Optimus" and its worth downloading. Rika didn't remember where the tune was from until I put on the episode "Countdown to Extinction" which is one of my favorite Season 1 eps. As far as characters are concerned, obviously I'm a bit Rodimus Prime fan with good reason.
