I don't hate SatAM in particular. Which is to say, I find all DiC Sonic cartoons to be about equally bad, both as adaptations and on their own, and I say that as someone who was introduced to Sonic through them. I put them on the same level as other game-based DiC cartoons like Captain N or Zelda, which from my experience aren't held in high regard by most Nintendo fans. To me, they're "those crappy cartoons that you watched as a kid but are an absolute cringe if you rewatch them now". But if you're curious as to what I dislike about SatAM in particular, well... Among other things, the fact I could never bring myself to care about its characters. Sally was a Mary Sue who seemed to exist only to prove Sonic wrong all the time, especially by the second season. Rotor had little personality beyond being the non-action technician. Dulcy's only personality trait was that she was a complete ditz. Antoine was a politically incorrect caricature. Tails was the little brat who was always left behind. But worst of all had to be Sonic, who was turned into a ridiculous "totally radical" parody. He came off less as a cool character and more as an irritating tryhard manchild. I do agree that the pilot was better, though. Everything looked more colorful, and the tone was more lighthearted, making it come off more charming than the rest of the show to me.
