Story-editor Robert N. Skir famously received death-threats from angry fans for his writing on the show (even including decisions that he had no say in), which lead to him canceling his planned appearance at a fan convention.

The reason why i woke up early on a Saturday morning........
when i was a kid. I for one, believe that the story and characters displayed here are incredible. Even as a kid i knew that this series was something more than just a mindless battle of good vs. evil. There is more then that, plenty more. It may have taken a brand new direction and introduced an entire new world and perspective of the characters, but the writers did a good job of making it work. On top of that, it is of the very few series that is completely done in C.G. The transformers look incredible as well as their surroundings.
The only downside to this series is well, Rattrap. I don't know, but in my opinion that bot is annoying. He of course if the comic relief of the show, but sometimes i just don't want to hear predictable corny jokes every 3o seconds. Other then that, the show will have you sitting down on a your couch during a lazy weekend and you WILL be entertained.
