During the conceptual phase, Mainframe executive Dan Didio kept assuring writer Marv Wolfman that the cartoon's predecessor, Beast Wars: Transformers (1996) had very little to do with the original The Transformers (1984), with regards to continuity. This was completely untrue, and Didio's incorrect information can be seen as one of the main reasons why Beast Machines had a somewhat loose continuity with its forerunners in the early episodes.

In numerous episodes, lights, laser bolts, explosions, smoke and fire behave like solid objects. In some cases, light rays even cast a shadow which would of course be impossible. See more »

While the show is a suitable follow-up to the Beast Wars series, it is not without some problems. However, if you are a fan of Beast Wars, you may like Beast Machines equally so. The thing to keep in mind is that the characters from Beast Wars that were carried over are in a new environment and facing new challenges. Along with some nice G1 references, Beast Machines is a fine program and does not deserve the amount of flack it receives. At least, in my opinion.
