One thing that really annoys me about Prime is the children. What is their big role in the fight against the bad guys? I do recognize Raff being the extra brains but what about Jack and Miko? I just see them as a burden and comic relief in the wrong place, and nearly being stepped on. I believe that their presence (except for Raff) is what is keeping me from enjoying this show to a full extent. Unless they have something like Sari's key, Daniel Witwicky's Exo-suit, pretty much anything that they can contribute to a fight I can only feel dread if it lasts longer than Animated. They just remind me of the 3 kids from Cybertron, where they're useful for just one thing but nothing more, and all they do is run away from trouble.
On the other hand, I love the rest of the cast. Arcee is sexy, Ratchet and Bulkhead are a nice throwback to a previous recent reboot, also the the voice acting, references of death and other dark aspects, and the graphics themselves give me a reason to enjoy it and hope it lasts at least 3 seasons.
