Armada did good on keeping the old-school roots alive, however G1 has always proved to be a much better series then anything that has come out thus far. Not just because it was the original series, but it was beyond inventive and followed a simple plot that was easy to follow yet kept one's interest.

the final part of the series involved a virus which infected robots and humans alike, turning them crazy and violent. prime uses the matrix to save the day and it ends with him and galvatron shaking hands and seemingly ending their feud. in japan however the series continued for a bit after that.

The series ended in Takara with Rodimus Prime going off to find another planet to populate with, I think, Springer (Read into that how you will.), leaving Fortress Maximus as the leader.

In the US series it ended with The Rebirth three parter, but the Japanese Takara series discounts that, and certain things regarding the head/targetmasters also.

And to Kazenji; yes, but if you want to sit there and pick at continuity errors and problems in physics, you'll be here forever. How can Astrotrain hold Devestator if he's a regular sized Decepticon? He just can, they just can. It's Transformers, it's not meant to be analysed to death, just enjoyed as it is.

How cool was Scourge during his "Black Convoy" days? That was just great.

That film had such a great plot twist with the death of Optimus and Starscream. Not to mention the great score that accompanied the tragic loss of the Autobot leader Optimus. I still listen to his sad song on my iPod.

When would people say Generation 2 started?

I've always thought there was a break in the third year - 1986 - when they did the movie, set 20 years in the future, and all the new characters that came after that (Rodimus, Galvatron, Ultra Magnus, Cyclonus etc.) That always seemed like a generation change to me.

My biggest beef with the show (besides the bad scripts and shoddy animation), is that in season 2, a bizillion characters show up with no explanation. Except for the Aerialbots, combaticons, and vehicons of course.

Season 1 we got:

Autobots: Optimus prime, wheel jack, Trail breaker, cliff jumper, prowl, blue streak, brawn, bumble bee, Jet fire, snarl, grimlock, slag, sludge, swoop, Iron hide, ratchet, Jazz, hound, huffer, gears, mirage, sunstreaker, and sideswipe

Decepticons: Megatron, Starcream, Skywarp, Thundercracker, Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage, Lazerbeak, Soundwave, Shockwave, Reflector 1, reflector 2, reflector 3, Bombshell, Kickback, shrapnel, Longhaul, Mixmaster, scavenger, bonecrusher, hook, scrapper, and Devastator if you want to count that.

Lets see in season 2 all of sudden these characters come along. Some introduced but mostly out of the void:

Autobots: Omega supreme, Perceptor, Tracks, Silverbolt, air raid, slingshot, skydive, fireflight, Smokecreen, blaster, red alert, inferno, grapple, hoist, beach comber, powerglide, cosmos, warpath, seaspray, steeljaw, ramhorn, eject, rewind, and maybe the protectobots

Decepticons: Astrotrain, blitzwing, Ramjet, Dirge, thrust, brawl, blastoff, swindle, vortex, onslaught, dead end, breakdown, motor master, wild rider, dragstrip

In anycase they could have had these charcters, the autobots anyway, appear via transport through omega supreme. Imean they just show up out of now where, What where they hangen out in the breakroom the whole time.

I realize its 30 minute toy commercial, and my comments also display how it was, but come on, that could have made a good story.

Everything up to, and including, Takara: Headmasters was considered Generation 1.

You're simply referring to different series', in which case, series 3 began after the movie.
