Netflix Voltron: Legendary Defender (SPOILERS)
« on: June 12, 2016, 11:27:32 AM »
So I binged the entire season the other day. I really loved this show!

The new take on the characters was interesting yet it still kept their spirits intact. Shiro (aka Sven) being the leader was odd at first but he grew on me. The Pidge reveal was handled well. But Zarkon tho??? He was a BEAST!! Did not see his being the original Black Lion pilot coming! I would love to see his original team. They were probably hardcore as fuck.

Has anyone else watched this yet?

I stopped reading halfway through the second sentence cuz I knew better.  What's your excuse?

I don't have to sound out each word like you do.

Finished it yesterday it was legit. The Avatar guys deliver again. Season felt a little short. Like we couldn't get at least 20 episodes?

Lions were awesome, characters were flushed out, writing was solid especially compared to most cartoons out there. Action scenes were great. I like a lot of the foreshadowing and breadcrumbs they've laid out already.

This felt like a worthy modern successor to Voltron unlike that Thundercats reboot that went all in on the animation and nothing else.

Just finished and thought it was good

I never watched the original as a kid. What's the difference between this show and the original?

Keith is the Leader and pilots the Black Lion.

Shiro is based on a character named Sven in the original series. Sven pilots the Blue Lion but is captured and presumed dead so Princess Allura takes over.

Lance pilots the Red Lion and his personality is more like New Keith.

Pidge is actually a boy
.
Hunk is very brave and the strongman of the group.
Princess Allura is human.

Her advisor (forgot his name) is very serious and wise. Not comedic at all.

Every episode ends the same way, i.e Form Blazing Sword!!

Saw it as well, thought it was actually pretty decent. Good back ground noise. They need to not do that lion formation thing, every fking time

Is it better than the Voltron series that came out a few years ago?
