For centuries across the universe, Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) and the Autobots have battled their greatest foes, Megatron (Frank Welker) and his army of Decepticons. But on Earth they face a new threat: discovery by the human race. By using their unique ability to disguise themselves as common Earth vehicles, the Autobots have managed to avoid detection and the risk of escalating their war to disastrous proportions. But now they require the assistance of three young human allies (Jack, Miko and Raf), along with Special Agent Bill Fowler (Ernie Hudson, Ghostbusters) not only to help keep their secret but also to defeat the sinister Decepticons once and for all!
From Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writing team behind the megablockbuster Transformers feature films, and executive producer Jeff Kline comes an all-new series of sophisticated adventures for the Autobots, Decepticons and their human allies that boasts stellar computer animation and an impressive voice cast including Adam Baldwin (Chuck), Clancy Brown (Lost), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Dwayne The Rock Johnson (G.I. JOE: Retaliation), John Noble (Fringe), Tony Todd (Final Destination) and Gina Torres (Firefly).

I have never forgotten the day the moment I heard about this show's first airing. I read the cast listings and found out Peter Cullen and Frank Welker were coming in as the original voices. Since I was losing some hope on Transformers from Revenge of the Fallen (was in middle school at the time and my mother didn't want me watching that....I see why now it was awful), I want to give this show a shot. I saw the first 5 episodes when it first aired. Hearing the original voices and even some new voices in the show was something to behold. The story was pretty solid as well. From then on, I kept watching the new episodes whenever they aired till the day Predacons Rising aired.
POSTIVES: the stories and characters are what the Bay films should've had (YES especially the humans). The stories were easier to follow and the characters had personality...
I wasn't sure about this show when I first found it on NetFlix. I am a bit of a G1 purist, and think some of the later Transformer cartoons have done a bit of a disservice to the source material, but I was very happy overall with the cartoon. The animation is well done, the kids don't over power the cartoon, how can you go wrong with Peter Cullen back as Optimus Prime AND Frank Welker returning as Megatron!
It does borrow some elements from the live action Transformers films, but I think because its animated it handles some of them better. If I had one minor complaint, it would be that I would have liked to see a few more familiar (Autobot) faces, but despite that the characters they do have are very well done. I like some of the direction they took with the show in expanding on what G1 established, like the insecticons and predacons, etc, its a neat way to expand the mythos in a new but interesting direction.
Definitely worth the price to put it into my...
When i heard that they intented to make a new Transformers cartoon, i was skeptical judging from the abomination that was Transformers Animated. However once i saw the first episode i changed my mind alltogether. It appears that they finally woke up and decided to give us a good Transformers show the like i have never seen ever since Beast Wars Season 3! The show is darker than the previous incarnations but it keeps a balance with the light heated approch of B.Wars and Animated. There is also a quite delicious treat...Peter Cullen and Frank Weller are back as Optimus Prime and Megatron! Peter keeps giving a sense of wisdom to Optimus that i really have missed and Frank, oh boy, Frank performs a Megatron that you shouldn't take lightly. If you thought the original Megatron as scary, wait to see this one! and i was really impressed with the animation. Normally, i dislike CGI but this one is something special. And the storylines are freaking awesome!!! I will give you a small...
