One of the greatest animated series ever conceived
"Transformers: Prime" is a well-balanced, intelligent, insightful, and awe-inspiring series that effectively captures the essence of life and humanity. With genuine and efficient dialogue that never seems canned or unnatural, along with passionate animation that draws you in with its careful attention to the individuality and singularity of each scene, this show seems more real than most live-action shows.
Everything that all other "Transformers" series and movies tried to accomplish were triumphed and brought to their utmost ideal in "Transformers: Prime". Transformers have always achieved deeper meaning with their "sense of humanity" mixed in with their robotic structures, and this series, with its soul-penetrating musical score, astoundingly continuous epic nature, and masterful story telling epitomizes this essence of the franchise. I have always respected "Transformers"'s ability to be more than just autonomous robots and their human friends, and I have always wished that one day a series or movie would truly manifest its full potential to dig deep into the soul. That day has arrived and been fulfilled in "Transformers: Prime".
All of "Prime"'s characters are interesting, unique, and easy to relate to. The overarching story telling is so organic that the end result of each season always feels inevitable and never forced. I am ever-so-grateful for the creators of this series who have brought to full light, for all to see, the greatness and profound nature of the "Transformers" story.
