First there was Generation One, Autobots and Decepticons knocking the bolts out of one another, whenever they got around to being allowed to fight in 80s TV. Then we got Beast Wars, a good show that is hard to get in the UK since it's still not been released in a full box set yet, and then we got Beast Machines.
Beast Machines is the continuing story of Beast Wars, the Maximals have won and they end back to Cybertron with Megatron strapped to their ship. He gets free however and proceeds to change history - He wins.
This is the second season box set of Beast Machines, the first season was slow at points, but remarkable with gripping stories and a very different take on the good and bad, the bad guys win from the start!
As the series progresses in season 1, we see the Maximals learn how to control their transformtions and their inner animal so that they can fight back against Megatron and his Vehicons. At the end of season 1, we were left with a cliff hanger.
Enter season 2 and things seem a lot slower, I won't explain why, but there's a good reason for it and it all comes to a head near the end. We are introduced to new characters and getting to see how cunning Megatron can be when backed into a corner.
I would recommend this for sure, for adults and kids alike. It's a smart cartoon, which is surprising, and brings the whole Generation One/Beast Wars story arch to a fitting end.
Enjoy, it's as gripping as the first season and worth every penny.
