A lot of fans identify with what came first, or namely the original Indigo League arc. Many more mature elements were also introduced in the first season that have been lost along the way (some claim such elements somewhat resurfaced in the DP arc). I myself have very fond memories of Season 1 and the Kanto dub. Some fans just feel the original season is a classic, and it can't be beat. While others just feel Pokemon was so much simpler back then, and they prefer it for that reason.

I'm just not as fond of them, mainly due to the change in voice cast, writing, and music (admittedly, the first season of BW really rekindled my love for the series and I think the current voice actors are significantly better than when they started).
Exactly right, my friend. It's a show for all of us. We all have different opinions. If people can't accept that, then they are not "true" Pokemon fans. OS, AG, DP, or BW, 4Kids, TPCi, or original JPN: the series is Pokemon. Yeah, things have happened here and there in the series I do not like one bit. I'm not proud of my prior misbehavior in posts, but this is an anime that has a good message to it and I feel has just lost its way.
