Although many crappy episodes I love the cartoon, and is also the reason of many transfans being that. 8)

Only reason I ever watch the cartoon now is to stock up on random Megatron quotes.

Apart from unintentional comedy value, I can't particularly think of anything good to say about the cartoon....

The first image that comes to mind when I consider Grimlock whupping on Megatron is Grim slicing the bugger in half, in Victory!

Anything else kinda pales by comparison.

Especially anything to do with 'Me Grimlock think you ugly!' or whatever other amazing witticism he says that seems to keep some of our transatlantic cousins in absolute stitches.

Yeh, while I'll admit the cartoon had lots of good points, it had some very bad ones... my biggest problem is they're often in the same episodes... Case in point, I recently burned some Paypal on the Dark Awakening 80s vid. I'm sitting there, thoroughly enjoying the title episode, and then suddenly Grimlock turns up doing his silly dance of rage, and I'm wondering why I didn't just, I dunno, have my Paypal balance three quid healthier.

Season 3 is a travesty, insulting to kids. Grimlock crying about Rodimus copping it really has to rank as one of the worst scenes in tf history.

Seasons 1 and 2 are simple but a lot of fun to watch for the most part.

I've got the Metrodome season 2 sets on my shelf just for the sake of if I ever decide to watch them.

The plan is for me to get very, very, very, very drunk before even thinking about it.

I'm dreading the day a friend or family member shells out on the DVD sets as a present for me, and I have to watch them and pretend to enjoy them... :(

I own the cartoon vids (bar season 3). I've watched 'em.

I'm unlikely to do so ever again.

Hmm, they're a bit cack aren't they? Amusing for an occasional session tho.

Also can be v. frustrating.

In many ways like Tim Henman I suppose. Or most Sports teams I watch.
