1) Femmes. This is for Autobots and Decepticons. In fact, let’s have more human females while we’re at it. From Schoolgirls to hardened military women, from nervous mothers to laid back sisters.
2) In-depth look at Autobot and Decepticon ideologies and societies. What would a Decepticon wedding or Autobot funeral look like? When a sparkling is born, what kind of rite is performed? Do their dialects differ at all? I want to see each sides’ music, art, literature, cuisine, their philosophies and goals.
3) Flesh out Cybertronian lifestyles, traditions, cultures, societies. The Praxian way of life could differ from the Iacon way of life. Having characters reflect on (their) life before the war is a great way to introduce this.
4) More seasons. I’m not talking we go crazy with 6+, but maybe we start with four seasons and make our way up to five. Sometimes three seasons just isn’t enough.
5) Strong Continuity, strong context, strong consistency. In everything. Plot, characters, backstory, history, you name it. Nothing’s worse than a narrative that keeps contradicting itself.
6) Complexity, for not just the characters but the plot as well. The fans are smart and attentive enough to follow arcs and piece things together.
7) Romance! Yeah, yeah, I know this one’s a stretch, but what’s not to love about a love story? It won’t be a center focus, just something that gives the series a bit of flavor.
8) Deeper mythology on the Primes. Let’s continue on making them these larger than life, mystical beings. Let’s expand upon who they are and give them epithets, correspondences and symbologies.
9) High stakes with high payoffs. Don’t backpedal or shy away from conflicts that could lend itself to the story. Status quo doesn’t need to be god, after all (note: changing status quo for the mere sake of it won’t work as well as changing status quo for a good reason. This has been a public service announcement in favor of good writing.)
10) Be original. Come up with new and exciting ideas. Go places that haven’t been explored before and fill every episode with actualized potential.
