What in the world is wrong with people??? I see some of you saying you dislike this series because of animation, and then go on to say that the original was the best. I also see griping about character development and so on...
Are you guys even looking at the screen? Did you mute the tv when you watched the shows?
This series had A LOT of character development, and it had pretty dang good animation considering that this type of computer generated animation was still in its baby stage. The animation in this series was practically experimental when this series was released, especially when you think about the battles.
They did great for what they had.
Also, if you really want to compare it to the original Transformers: More Than Meets the Eye, there were so many mistakes made not only with the animation but also with the sound effects and the voices, it's funny. I mean come on, sometimes there were REALLY bad times, like in the very first episode, when the Decepticons are boarding the Autobots ship, Optimus Prime speaks in Megatrons voice. Star Screams colors never really stay the same in the entire series, their mouths moved when words weren't coming out.... I could go on and on.
Now, understandably, they had ALOT to do on that show, and even if the colors were off at times, the detail they went to on the Trasformers was amazing for a hand drawn cartoon. The stories were great, but still had lots of plot holes. One of the best thing about the series was its voices.
Which brings me to one of the bad things about Beast Wars. It needed a few better voice talents.
Another thing it was lacking was the amount of transformers there were, which they remedied later on, but then they all changed to Metals or whatever, and then it ruined the show. Not to mention the complete idiocy of Beast Machines, but that is another story.
Now I do say the original is by FAR the best, but this series is an EXCELLENT follow up to it. Optimus Primal has alot of emotion at times and the stories are pretty good considering.
Beast Wars gets 9/10 and when it changed to Metals it gets 6/10 in my book.
