I just watched the five-part series opener of Transformers: Prime! MAN, am I ever glad for a new Transformers show. There has been a gaping hole in my heart ever since Transformers: Animated ended, and this seems to be just the show to fill it. It's not quiiiite as good as Animated, but it's just starting out and I have a feeling it'll hit its stride.
I started out unimpressed, but it grew on me a lot over a surprisingly short time. The animation is great, the characters are solid, the action scenes are BREATHTAKING, and the human mascots aren't too bad. It's a serious enough show to appeal to me, but it has some great humor here and there. Altogether, it's fabulous. Definitely catching the series proper in February.
One gripe: Please, Peter Cullen. Turn off the epic end-of-days one-shall-stand speech and talk normal. Not everything has to be said in your most dramatic swoon-inducing voice. Please make Prime emote properly.
