Show Summary

"Many millions of years ago, on the planet Cybertron, life existed, but not life as we know it today. Intelligent robots that could think and feel inhabited the cities. They were called Autobots and Decepticons. But the brutal Decepticons were driven by a single goal: Total Domination. They set out to destroy the peace loving Autobots and the war between the forces of good and evil raged across Cybertron, devastating all in its path and draining the planet's once rich resources of energy. The Autobots, on the verge of extinction, battled valiantly to survive..."

    • Terrible Show.

      This show really is terrible, but like Pokemon, it heavily appeals to kids. In addition to that, it was made in the 80s so I can't really fault it for being shitty.
    • my love for transformers <3

      Ok so my personal view on transformers is that honestly i love them more than my religion which is sad they make my world go round especially Optimus <3 c; but anyways i've been a fan since the age of 5 all because of my dad who is now in Germany <3 :c but he's the one who got me addicted to transformers personally i love episode # 65 just because it was the last show me and my dad watched together which was forever ago but if you walk in my room all you see is transformers everywhere cause you know i am THE #1 biggest fan of all time! and my collection is really taking up all the space in my room XD but one thing i don't agree with is the newer movies especially transformers dark of the moon i mean yeah it 's amazing but the problem is the whole issue with the ark first of all transformers fans must know the ark NEVER landed on the moon with Sentinal Prime you'll know that from episode #1 c: but all 3 of the newer movies are amazing just because Michael Bay directed it lol but i'm really excited for transformers 4 coming soon in 2014 which i've been waitting for since it was first announced some time probably 2 years ago and there's gonna be a trilogy meanning 3 more movies and so far they have Mark Wahlberg in it as one of the actors c; ermagersh but you know who i love most of all?

    • A classic dose of nostalgia.

      I've been an avid fan of Transformers for a long time- I first decided I liked it a couple years ago when I was bored at 3 AM in the morning and watched Transformers Animated. From there I grew to like other TF series and eventually was drawn to the series that started it all.

      To me, this series is a great nostalgic blast from the past. The character designs, the settings, the storyline, all of it is really great, meshing together wonderfully and the show overall never fails to make me smile.

      In every episode I've watched, I've laughed at least once, was on the edge of my seat in anticipation more than once, and was hungry for more even by the end of the episode.

      The characters all get fair amounts of attention unlike some series which star certain characters and leave other ones behind, creating the basic "No-Faced" background character. Not to mention they all have some fantastic moments of interaction- a key feature that is very important to me as the viewer. Overall, a great series that simply can NOT be passed up by ANY Transformers fanmoreless
    • The Original Transformers Show, A very good show, but way overrated.

      The Transformers, or Transformers Generation 1 or just G1 as fans call it, is the original Transformers show. It is about how alien robots from the planet Cybertron had the power to transform into anything and that they are split into two factions, the heroic Autobots who battle the evil Decepticons. They have been at war for a long time, but now all the fighting has drained their planet of energy and they have gone to Earth to get it. The Autobots befriend the humans and get energy in more peaceful ways, while the Decepticons use brute force to get what they want. The Autobots are led by Optimus Prime, and they Decepticons by Megatron. The show is amazing, I love the story and characters. There is also the fact that this is a very original idea, robots transforming. The show makes a very cool idea and puts it with a great story and great characters. It's actually kind of hard to describe exactly what is good about this show, it just is. Most of this show is just amazing, and I really don't know how to explain why, you'll have to see it for yourself. Even though this show is amazing, it has undesirable aspects. It can get repetitive, the show also has a lot of technical errors, and there's not much logic either. Also, there is the fanbase of Geewunners, or as I like to call them, Geewhiners. All they do is praise this show and put down every other Transformers series that isn't this one. They make this show way overrated. It's one of the best shows I've seen, but these geewhiners are just crazy. As I said, there are flaws, I didn't go much into detail about them, I just pointed them out, but they are examples of how this show is not perfect, and that geewhiners need to stop putting down everything that isn't G1, because the time for this show is gone. It was great while it lasted, but now it's gone. Aside from these problems, this is an amazing show and most of you will love it.moreless
    • Transformers is a classic that was ahead of it time.

      Transformers is a classic show with two side of giant robots fighting the good Autobots lead by Optimus Prime and the Evil Decepticons lead buy Megatron who land on eath 4 million years before and walk up in the year of 1984. G1 or Generation 1 stared it all first just made to sell the toy it became one of the best cartoon shows to ever exist in the whole world. It was be 24 year sice the show first aired, and now it was a live action moive with a second one comeing in 2009, other serires and it own cartoon moive. Transformers is just one great show.moreless
