Show Summary

Trapped on a primitive planet, two opposing factions, the Maximals and the Predacons, of Transformers, a race of sentient robots, fight over its precious Energon. Soon they discover that there are other forces at work on the planet - a powerful alien race that does not approve of their presence. And as they delve deeper into the planet's history, they uncover a terrible secret, one that must not be allowed to fall into the wrong hands, or their entire race's very existence could be threatened. Beast Wars was a spin-off from the 80s Transformers cartoon. It was later followed by Beast Machines, which continues this show. Another interesting series to note that Beast Wars may have started is Beast Wars Neo, completely done in Japanese and yet to be dubbed; it is vaguely reminiscent of Gundam Wing, and many other popular mobile suit animes.

  • One of the lamest shows on G4 & a realy, realy, realy, realy, realy borning one too.

    2.0
    just like Super_Peter w/ Saul of The Mole Men & Tim & Eric Awsome Show & 2 CGI show I hate are Beast Wars & Tak & the Power of Juju.



    G4's first worst show, it's realy, realy, realy, realy, realy, realy borning one too. The Grafic are horifing. The voice-acting is like music done by Ziggy Marley [his voice is like nails on a chalkbord] & the story s can put you to sleep & I hope this will never air on Cartoon Network & it's bad enough that Baby looney Tunes, My Gym Parter's a Monkey, & Squrriel Boy still airs.



    WHO ON EARTH LIKES THIS FUCKING SHIT?! THE ANIMATION IS SO BAD I'D RATHER EAT A RHINO THAN STARE AT IT. THE COLORS ARE SO DULL THAT THEY BURN YOUR EYES. THE CHARACTERS ARE SO FUCKING UGLY WANT TO SLIT THEIR THROATS WITH A SWORD. THE HUMOR IS SO BAD THE COMEDY DOESN'T DO A JUSTICE. AND THE VOICE ACTING SOUNDS LIKE THE ACTORS AREN'T EVEN TRYING. THIS SHOW SUCKS! DON'T SEE HOW ANYONE CAN LIKE THIS PIECE OF GARBAGE! PLUS: WHAT IN THE FUCKING HELL IS PRIMAL SUPPOSED TO BE?! IS HE AN ANTHROPOMORPHIC PIECE OF CRAP?! WHAT IN THE FUCKING HELL IS HE SUPPOSED TO BE?! FUCK THIS SHOW, I'M DONE! I'M FUCKING DONE!moreless
  • Good ole transformers receive an overhauling

    Do you remember 80's transformers? Well this show has our amazing robots casted away in a lonesome planet. Well not exactly the same robots actually but the spirit of Optimus Prime and Megatron lives on this update to the franchise.



    The first thing you are going to notice is that the show is not animated anymore, it is CGI now, which makes the robots looks better than ever. although I am a sucker for cartoon drawings. This show is excellent leaving you every episode thinking about what might happen next week. All the episodes are great don't miss this show because it is CGI + great storyline.moreless

    About 15 years ago i saw an interesting animated show. Yes a little bit blocky maybe but still with an interesting story line about the maximals and the predacons who end up on a unknown planet which later turns out to be earth eons ago. There is a large amount of energon there. They can't sustain their robot modes for long so they scan for any animal forms and turn into their new beasts modes. Megatron tries to destroy the maximals. But the maximals fight back they learn more about the planet and more characters are introduced. Even some of the decepticon era. You have to watch a lot of episodes before all the loose ends are tied but it's definitely worth it.moreless
  • Three kinds of intention, two kinds of hope... no kind of peace.

    8.5
    The team of scientists, instead of the planned space exploration flight, ends up in the war against the rebels trying to conquer the galaxy. So what? Consider: their science plans get wrecked, everything they build get wrecked, their culture gets useless, everything they are in for is everyday attempts to defend against Megatron's plan to end their sparks.



    The team of rebels, instead of the quick win by taking enormous energy resource, ends up in front of their energon, unable to do anything about the planet. So what? Yes, there is a lot of opportunity to test their diversion skills, but where is their world domination? For that time, the planet is far from being theirs.



    Behind all that are the so-called Sparks, circuitry, the DNA (great!), and finally, the code. The code that can either save their planet, or destroy it. The code that gets to run or ruin the souls of these bots! Said that, Beast wars is a war of the bots, but for their sparks, it's part of the lifetime. It's the part that is spent on unsuccessful attempts to win, while on Cybertron, someone gets drastically another existence in their absence. It's all throughout with metal instead of flesh. So doesn't it become a paradox question - what is better?



    Now about the rating. The CG of this show, characters and the story are very impressive, but strange thing is when the second season begins, the story turn and new graphics totally break something important. They turn a planet into a battlefield, where all bots are just warriors. I like those seasons very much less than the first. But the first season is great. Really great.moreless

    Beast Wars was terriable it needed to be canncelled before G4 realized they're going down hill.



    The Grafics are hidious, Low-Quality Voice-Acting, & The Dialog make you want to put yourself to sleep



    Man, G4 did something right you may hear people to bring it Back but it was cancelled for it own good



    Cheetor was the charater I hate the most.
