Zeta's gotta be the go-to classic. Anybody else have a favorite Gundam series?

True. "Gundam UC" has become one of my favoite SciFi settings, because there war is actually portrayed in quite depressing way and we see beloved characters dying like flies.
Anyway, I like Zeta a lot because it shows antagonists on both the Federations and Zeons side. Plus, Kamille is a good example for a flawed yet sympathetic protagonist.
Not to mention the only time when the Federation had balls.........
Say what you will about Scirocco, but he was an effective leader. If only Kamille focused on the Neo Zeon instead of the Titans, the Earth Sphere would have been much better off.
People act like Game of Thrones is the first show on the public eye that mixed political intrigue with grimdark realism, but Zeta Gundam did that years before the first Song of Ice and Fire novel ever got published.
And the difference between the two? Most Zeta Gundam episodes have great battles, while most Game of Thrones seasons only have one great battle for each ten episodes.
