This SHORT series should have been another movie. It suffered from several problems as a series, however. Because they shoved so much new stuff into 3 made for TV episodes, the story line is way over-compressed. It also seems like it's almost nothing but a plug for a bunch of new transformers that they never had enough time in the series to develop and then make for toy production (and thence, more money). So, what the viewer gets is a story that seems almost entirely monetarily based to generate revenue on a bunch of new Transformers before the series ended. Despite this being a fictitious story line, these episodes take the ridiculous to a whole new level, even when one accepts the basic tenements of the Transformers in general. These three episodes have enough in them for a properly written STORY (read: movie or another year's worth of episodes). Overall, it's good closure for a Transformers fan, but erringly schizophrenic.
