This season has more tongue in cheek comedy than the previous two seasons before it but the jokes are sharp and all but attack Hasbro and the toy company that is sponsoring them. Example: Rat Trap's coment on Optimus changing bodies frequently is a direct attack on the fact that Hasbro put out several beast wars Optimus Primals during the show and forced the T.V. series to integrate the new toys.
Final coments. I enjoyed the series becasue it dealt with war in a true to life context. People do not always hit their target. People run out of amunition. People get hurt and in war people die. The fact that only 7 Transformers survive all three seasons (out of 25 transformers) is just incredible and shows what a high mortality rate the show had.
Thoughts on the "Transformer Religion" that was brought into play during the third season. I'm still undecided. It was well written but I'm not sure if it had a place in the show. After all religion is a very controversial subject these days and has ended more than one transformer series in the past.
The actual content on this set is for transformer fans' dreams. This is it, folks: the true end to the Beast Wars saga. And boy does it go out with a bang. No spoilers here, but fans of the original Transformers series and the movie will find lots of enjoyment, especially with the last intricately plotted 2 part series finale. Villainy. Death. Heroism. Giant robot duels. Sacrifice. This is what makes Transformers, and it is all here.
The third season showed incredible production value with lots of special effects, huge set pieces, gigantic spaceships, pivotal epic moments, the best writing and the best direction - all of which are amplified from previous seasons.
Seasons 1 and 2 were excellent, but Season 3 is where it ends dramatically.
I await Beast Machines on DVD (where the Beast Wars saga continues), but only for completists sake.
Waspinator finally happy!
The show having been off the air now for x-amount of years is finally being released on DVD. Season three, the final season, tied up all of the loose ends in the Beast Wars universe, provided us viewers with sweet new transformers and upgrades (Transmetal 2), and the absolute in climactic endings.
The only problem with this season is that even though there are new Transformers, due to to the brevity of the season, only appear for a short period of time. Seriously, one Transformer is introduced three episodes before the series ends.
By the way, I do not reccomend seeing Beast Machines because this show practically killed the franchise. It's a sequel, it's tempting, but it's not worth it.
Anyways, season three is great. A must buy.
P.S. An easter egg on this DVD is the famed deleted scene in Nemesis part 2 where G1 Megatron's spark is returned to his body!
