No offense, but I sense a trukk not munky attitude here. I've watched just about every TF series other than Cybertron*, and Beast Wars is definitely one of the better ones around. It doesn't have the nostalgic feeling or recognizability of G1, but as far as story is concerned it's much better.
* I watched Energon, got bored, and never really picked up the Unicron series anymore. Victory is the only other series I didn't finish; I started but when I started falling asleep each time I just quit that too.
