I’ve actually known 3 girls who expressed liking Beast Wars when the subject of Transformers came up. I assume that there were others, but we never got around to discussing the finer points of the Transformers franchise in the time I knew them. Typically they found Beast Wars then went backwards to Gen 1, as they were younger than me. I expect if you let Carol ramble long enough she’d also list the Silverbolt/Blackarachnia romance, Megatron’s speech patterns in general, the revelation of the golden disk, and any scene with Rhinox in it.
As I may have said in the past, I was not a fan of Beast Wars until much later on. At a point when I had expendable income I picked up the first DVD set and realized the error of my ways. They should really revisit that concept. It would be cool if they gave it a shot in the Animated universe. They seem like a good fit to me.
