Previously, on my review of Beast Wars Season 1: Put away the 80's synthesizer and pull out the 90's generic rock guitar! Created by the same company that created Reboot, this classic Computer Generated series is the follow up to the original Generation One Transformers. Beast Wars in America, Beasties in Canada (Canada has a rule that no show aimed at children can have war in the title, go figure). An enjoyable series that had previously been released in bare bones sets by Rhino (which I own and are now discontinued), it has now been rereleased by Shout! with new extras! Beast Wars has finally gotten a more deserving release!

The first season is more generic and simplistic as far as most of the stories go but it sets things up nicely and builds to a wonderful climax by season's end. The second half of the season really started to become inspired and storylines had more continuing arcs and characters were becoming much more developed and defined.

This is the best transformers series there is. Unlike the others, this one keeps the main plot and main characters while adding acceptable additions. While it is targeting kids, it still has great humor every now and then."This guy's got bearings of chrome steel". If you loved it as a kid, buy it.

This was a fantastic tv series, one which blended CGI, good story telling, and characters that you actually cared about. As a child, this was one of my absolute favorite Saturday morning cartoons.
My friends and I all collected the toys, and played many hours re-creating the scenes from the show. In fact, several months ago, we pulled out all our old Beast Wars toys to reminisce.
This box set is solid, and the discs are great. What a fun way to re-live a part of childhood.
I would definitely recommend for children today. Even with the old CGI, it wont seem outdated, and the story telling is much better than the current crap out there for kids today.

The Beast Wars cartoon did something that I always knew would happen ever since the US cartoon stopped in 1987. Transformers toys were GREAT toys.... BUT were often sold through the great cartoons that made the kids LOVE the characters and want to buy them. The toy line never recovered from the cartoon's cancellation in '87 (it continued in Japan and parts of Europe, but in the US, it went away for a few years).

And the Beast Wars toys were simply... ew. Where's my cars and planes and guns that transform into robots? Why are they earh animals? Duh! THEY RUINED TRANSFORMERS FOREVER!

But then, as predicted, they made a good cartoon with a good story and the toys AND the line were reborn. While the stories weren't as appealing to me as Generation One (I grew up on those), they were still good, and the tie-ins TO the G1 cartoons and comics just made it all the better. But older fans (and more important, newer KIDS!) wanted to buy the toys again! GASP!

Now with the handful of live-action movies, toy lines, cartoons and comics out there - not to mention my favorite, the Masterpiece Transformers toy line - we can somewhat look back and not remember much of a time when TFs weren't around (other than when the original kids of G1 went to high school and college). But one can also look back to this and think... the Transformers never looked dumber than Beast Wars... BUT... the whole thing was saved by the cartoon. And they should've NEVER stopped it in 1987.
