Transformersfans disappointed by the live-action Michael Bay films and various animated permutations of their favorite Cybertronians' adventures may find some solace in the Emmy-winningTransformers Prime, a CGI series that harks back to theTransformers' … see full wiki
The season started out rather a little slow and I was a bit put off with the introduction of devices and elements that felt vaguely familiar. In the beginning, I was a little hesitant with the introduction of its human characters that I feared that the series would be a little too kiddie for my tastes.
However, the writing and direction worked well to develop the characters and the elements that were introduced. The series slowly but carefully touched upon the possibilities and the complications of certain mechanical organisms hiding on Earth. I was also impressed with the way it managed to develop the themes of morality, war and friendship as the series went on. The writing was also confident enough to take some risks and even re-introduce new concepts in the history behind Cybertron.
The animation work also got better with each episode; I loved the way the robots showed some battle scars that gave them personality and character. Arcee is one Autobot that may be in the Transformers Hall of Fame.
I have to say that the original “Transformers” will always have a soft spot in my childhood memories, But this series showed a lot of potential that I am hungry for season two.
Now why couldn’t Michael Bay’s “Transformers” be more like this than the douchie dreck sequels it had been after the first movie? Bay needs to take pointers from the writers of this series.
Full review coming soon.
