I accidentally ran into this 2003 thread from an unknown forum where people are talking about transformers television series.
Transformers should not hold hands or kiss

Am I wrong? I tortured my mind a few times and tried to force myself to watch Beast Wars and could not watch full episodes because they were beyond stupid.
They made these Transformers hold hands, fall in love, and kiss each other.. it was ridiculous during the "ROMANTIC" moments.

They overdid just about everything! But I thought that in Search For Alpha Trion the same was done alot more tactful! You didn't go "aw,... Not again." like Silverbolt and Blackarachnia (although it did shake up the storyline a bit for the second season). But you actually did care about where the relationship between Optimus and Elita was going, and why they could not remain together.
Even Arcee's love triangle beween her, Hot Rod and Springer was done very subtle!
It's all about presentation!
And welcome to the Murphy's side of things! ;)

No, I have never liked any relationships/lovey dovey feelings between Beast Wars. I never sensed that from the G1 characters.. I thnk that is an arguement used by hard core Beast War fans to try to excuse the stupidity of the thought.
You never saw any of the G1 Transformers holding hands, kissing, talking about feeling for each other.
BUT there were a few G1 episodes that made me want to puke even as a kid. When Seaspray fell in love with a human... and Beach Comber also fell in love with a human.. and then Cosmos I think did also... been a while since I have seen those.. those were the episodes I recorded over and watched only once because they were so dumb!
"So, Lone Starr, now you see that evil will
always triumph, because good is dumb.!"

Just for the record! Only Seaspray [The God Gambit] and Powerglide [The Girl Who Loved Powerglide] had Transformers falling for humans! (Some twisted souls still claim that Tracks with Raoul [Make Tracks aka Making Tracks / Autobop] should fill the bill too. Not my opionion)
And again there was the Episode The Search For Alpha Trion! Where the Autobots found their girlfriends again after they thought the Female Autobots were destroyed. There was alot of snuggling and holding hands in there. Even Optimus Prime 'linked' with Elita One! (The way Peter Cullen did Prime's voice, many believe we were seeing two Transformers doing 'the deed' in the Cybertronian way)
Also, the episode War Dawn had a very lovey-dovey couple in Orion Pax and Aerial! She smack-kissed him right on the face-plate! :D
The difference between all that and what Beast Wars did, was tact. In Beast Wars it was right in your face and done way too thick. The makers of the original had to keep it light because the cartoon was still geared to a younger audience, but there was enough in there to keep you entertain at any age! If it is done in the right way, I could even be fun! (Even if it is only a scene of a short hologram projection Optimus may have of Elita and himself!)

Just for the Record.. ITS STILL STUPID! My point still stands, and I pointed out Seaspray.. and I am pretty sure that Beach Comber fell in love with something.. doesnt matter what, its just stupid and so is anybody else who thinks kissing robots is cool.
And I'm sure this would offend Alonso so don't mention it to him, K?

I have it on record from a friend that Alonso is not only a good kisser but a competent and generous lover.
