If any show had to replace Transformers Animated, thank goodness it's this one.
While not up to par with the best Transformers has to offer, this hsow is certainly no slouch. Prime has a lot of effort put into it, and it shows all across the board. The animation is incredible for a TV budget, and looks better than the live-action movies. The voice actors all give their best to the show, with stand-outs being Jeffery Combs (known to Trekkies as Weyoun and Shran), Frank Welker, and, as always, Peter Cullen and Josh Keaton. Most of the characters are pretty good, but the humans tend to follow a trend in quality. Miko is annoying, stupid, and reckless, and personally, I wouldn't mind if she got killed the next time she stowed away on a mission. Raf is okay, and has some good moments, but for every one he has there's also a bad moment. Most of the time it's just neutral though. But Jack? Jack is the most awesome human in the entire Transformers franchise. Just how awesome is this? Enough to be entrusted with safeguarding Optimus Prime's brain! Words do not express how spectacular he is he is. The Transformers themselves also get plenty of screen time, and almost every one of them has a distinct personality, with the exception of Bumblebee. He really got the short end of the stick. To match the movies they took away his voice, but the way his face is designed prevents a lot of emotive ability, so we never really get a good idea what he's saying unless another character responds. Other than that though, they're all fine. The plots are much more complicated than your average cartoon, and it's to the show's advantage. However, they are better in Season 2 than Season 1, so keep that in mind. Up until the second finale, they mostly had a set status quo, only changing a few times. But regardless, it's still a fun show, and deserves a chance from any Transfan (not the greatest fan name, but better than Trannie).
