well, imo season 1's animation was top notch, then it was all down hill. and although i liked season 3 better than most of season 2, its animation was pretty bad compared to some season 1 &2 eps. i mean "out of the past" was one of the best episodes of the series, but the animation was soooo far behind the story. But "Rebirth" had great animation, so i wish the enitre series was done like that (most of it was actually). "Ascension" also had some great animation, and for season 2, i think "earth mover" had some nice animation. season 3, hmm, i wasnt too impressed at all with the animation, but there were good moments, like the battle scene in the truck on the highway in "big time" (i think it was big time, if not then it was "betrayl". well thats mo!!! peace.
