I didn't know this show had a toyline! A really cool one: saw 'em when I went to Walmart today to check if they had the Kong toys - they did, and Voltron was right next to them, and Power Rangers next to that. Pretty good thematic organizing of the toys.

Finally started Season 2 by watching the first three episodes tonight. They were quite entertaining, especially Hunk after he and Lance fell to the bottom of the ocean. I have to say that I was quite surprised that those furball aliens Pidge found did not turn out to be vicious little buggers as I anticipated. The age changing Coran was hilarious, especially his teenager phase. The last episode we watched with the Galra rebel was a really good episode. The fight with the Robeat was pretty awesome too. I love how this show continues to impress.

We just finished the second season and overall, it was just as solid as the first.
Spoiler Below:
My only complaint is that I felt it was a little too soon for them to attack Zarkon head on since they only freed like 3 planets of the thousands he reigns over. I loved that this show doesn't pull any punches when it comes to characters dying or not and that all of the deaths feel natural rather than them being killed just for shock factor. The fight between Voltron and Mobile Suit Zarkon was pretty bad ass as was the battle between Allura and Hagar.
I especially can't wait for Season 3 now that my favorite character is finally going to make the stage. Speaking of which, when is Season 3? I need it now!! :D

Man, 7 episodes was not enough. These went by way too quickly.

Spoiler Below:
First, I loved the way they changed around the Paladins. That was well done and worked out. I also love that the trio were not instantly able to do anything with them. Best part of this aspect was when Allura started to talk like Lance to the lion.

Lotor is so god damned badass. Like oh my god he is already superior to the original incarnation (and I mean Sincline in Golion, not the jokester Voltron version). He is ruthless, he is a strategist, and a top notch warrior. I really hope we get to see him and Keith actually duel each other in hand to hand combat sometime soon.

Next up, I'm not sure which was funnier, alternate universe Shiro being Sven with a bad accent or the whole, "Just get me to a Space Hospital and I will be fine."

Speaking of Shiro, is it just me, or is Shiro a clone? I'm pretty sure there was another Shiro in that tank when he was escaping and Plan Corone sounds an awfully like clone.

Finally, while I loved the flashback episode, I did feel that it crammed too much information into one episode. It was like the King Grayskull episode of the 2002 He-Man series. It should have been a two parter to really flesh it out. However, I think I fangasmed multiple times when they said Zarkon is from the planet Daibazal (Zarkon's original Japanese name) and Hagar was originally an Altean named Honerva (Hagar's original Japanese name).


Good god these episodes were great. I just hope we don't have to wait too long for the remaining 6 episodes to come out.

Finally got around to watch Season 4 of the show and I have to say that I'm slightly disappointed. I don't like how they removed Keith from being a pilot as it renders everything that happened in the first half utterly pointless. Nothing came out of Shiro's disappearance. Also, they didn't really do anything to show why Lotor is a terrible emperor. He was removed from that job way too quickly as Zarkon returned too quickly. His soldiers were also way too quick to betray him and I really hope he doesn't actually work with the rebellion at all. Or if he does, they do something intelligent with it. I did love the stuff they did with Pidge though and while the Voltron on Ice episode was hilarious, it really felt out of place. The two part finale felt a bit rushed as well.

Overall, I liked it, but I don't feel like they executed everything as solid as they had with the first 26 episodes. I just hope we don't have too long to wait for Season 5.

BTW, this has nothing to do with the show itself, but I am really getting sick of Netflix just cutting off the end credits of the final episode just to have it go to some random unrelated show. About five seconds after the end credits started it instantly cut to the first episode of Ninjago. The same thing happened with Stranger Things Season 2 as the credits cut off to go to some other show. Thus, I have to then go back to the episode and fast forward through the whole thing just to get to the end credits, which kind of kills the mood by that point.
