4.0 out of 5 stars
thru the haze of nastalgia, Sept. 14 2002
I never made it a point to right a review before,
But hands down the Beastwars transformers series was one of the best written,animated ("for its time")and had the best story consistancy of any TRANSFORMERS series.Now like most of you
who bother reading this I too look at Generation 1("the first transformer series from 1985")with child like awe but give me a break everything except the movie and the first season had horrible writing.
why do I say this, pick up this DVD and find out.
Its from the weaker of the three seasons but its heads above the rest of this transformers [stuff] we've been recieving from Beastmachines,robots in disguise to the new armada series that are too busy selling you their toys to bother putting together a
half way decent story.this DVD includes two of the better episodes of season one the intro of tigatron and the venomous
Black arachnia--A female character something the 1985 series
and all those following beastwars was sorely lacking,much less
such a interesting one to boot.Arcee not with standing who only
came out for the movie was never used properly and went away.
Don't even bother mentioning aleita one.
Give this DVD a chance to reach young child like eyes for the first time,Give them a reason to give a [hoot]about TRANSFORMERS
story arcs,And who knows maybe..just maybe put down their toys
long enough to listen to good writing for a change.from a cartoon that uses neiztche,shakespeare and other famous writers
as reference material while remembering its just a cartoon.
so lets Keep transformers alive.without insulting the intelligence of kids to do it(" or their parents").
