      The Beast Wars - Part One is the first part of the season premier. As a part of the season one premier, it does do what it is supposed to do and it does it well: it introduces the characters and lays out the plot of the series.

      I particularly liked how the season premier stayed away from bringing in a whole lot of history or references from the original Transformers show because I think that would have complicated the episode unnecessarily and made it harder to follow and get into.

      As the show progresses, more references and material


      from the original Transformers series will be introduced, and I think that was a smart way of going about it rather than bogging down the series premier.

      In this episode, we are treated to an exciting space battle as well as some decent, although by no means excellent, ground combat.

      Although the CGI is quite rough and at times looks awkward, and while the CGI is not overly detailed and sometimes shows the characters moving oddly, it does not detract from my enjoyment of the episode too much and the CGI will get better as the episodes progress.

      I ...


      • do feel that the episode does not make much sense at times, like for example, after the two factions first crash and adopt beast forms to protect themselves from the energon radiation, each character, with the exception of Optimus and Megatron, seem to give themselves new names to fit their beast forms.

        That always struck me as odd.

        It is almost like they did not have names before adopting these beast forms.

        I also find it really odd that Megatron would so easily attempt to “destroy” and be “done with” one of his soldiers even though even after Dinobot

        is blasted far away, his forces still outnumber the Maximals.

        Perhaps had he not, he may have won the beast wars in the first episode.

        Surely he could have quite possibly defeated Dinobot and then Dinobot would have had no choice but to follow Megatron once again.

        It just seems stupid in a tactical sense to me, but it does provide the viewer with one of their first impressions of the character: he is treacherous and not to be trusted.

        All in all, while not my favorite episode of the series, the first episode of the “Beast Wars” series is nonetheless entertaining and memorable.
