Best thing about it so far... innovative way of showing the classic Dreamworks Logo.


I will be now!

Lance and the big guy annoyed the hell out of me. Enough that I am considering whether it's worthwhile to keep watching. Other than that it was ok.

Loved it.
And this is me talking.

Wife loved it too. Loved the newer, better princess.


Hunk is one of my favorites. While the other lions rely on finesse, he head buts/rams/bites everything.

Also:
Lauren Montgomery (The Legend of Korra) and Joaquim Dos Santos (Avatar: The Last Airbender) serve as executive producers, and Tim Hedrick (also from Avatar/Korra) serves as head writer.

This helps the campy not ruin the story. They did a really good job of that throughout both Avatar series.

Enjoyed it very much. Really nice mix of magic and sciFi

Hope they get that Season 2 going quick

I don't have Netflix so I hope they release the series on blu ray.

I'm quite happy with it. Well, most of it. Ending on a cliffhanger without a guaranteed second season is just cruel.

I know it's probably a sign of faith that there would be a second season, but still... cruel.


Yeah, I'm up to episode 11 and will watch that tonight.
Here's hoping for a second season soon.

I've watched the first three episodes, and so far it's fun. Slight war between my nostalgia(some of the characters are flying different lions!) and my OCD(but their suit colors finally match the lions they fly!)


I binged watched it all on Saturday. Really enjoyed it and hope it gets a season 2!


Your killin' me guys, I have a ton of publishing work to do, but I NEED VOLTRON watching time, AHHH!


:P

Liberty's Edge

I finished it yesterday.

It was okay I suppose. I didn't really like Avatar or Legend of Korra either. I should probably approach a children's cartoon with limited expectations.

I've been enjoying it. I like how the story has been modified from the original series (i.e. Voltron + robeast not in every episode, flying castle/spaceship, princess not a lion pilot, etc.) to keep it interesting for me. I just wish they would've moved the story at a bit quicker pace, but that's just me. :)

Was thinking that when Lance got hurt, the similar to when Sven got hurt in the original. But he got better.... :-/


Given the great character development and the attempt to make this new Voltron an homage to the original Go Lion as well as the Americanized Voltron, I'm pretty happy with the Princess not (yet?) being a Paladin. In fact, I kind of like the fact that she isn't. I like her as the commander of the team and the master of the castle...

Even if the mice were a bit much.

Spoiler:

So speaking of Paladins. That Black Paladin reveal. I have to admit that I called it about halfway through the season, and I was NOT disappointed.

Well, not with Zarkon being the Black Paladin. I was a little irritated that they once again went with the overused trope of "Well, see, the Big Bad was once our ally, and we really should tell you, but, uh, we're not going to do that even though it makes sense!."

But, whaddya gonna do?

Also, how about that Pidge, eh?

Raise your hand if the Princess/Her Father's Ghost moment broke your heart.

Oh - if you guys really want a second season, binge it regularly. Netflix does monitor rewatch numbers.


Wow...hella cliffhanger.

Spoiler:
"We were unable to recover the black lion Paladin's beyard"

Well, now we know why...


Raises hand, grabs tissue.

Spoiler:
I'm pretty much engaged to Pidge (sans lion; her name is even Kaydee ;) )

Spoiler:
I thought it was "Katie," in the new show. At least that's what it sounds like when Shiro says it.

I did love that reveal, though. Literally everyone BUT Lance had figured it out.

I just saw the first episode. It was pretty good.

But:
at least in the first episode, they do not say FORM FEET AND LEGS!!! FORM ARMS AND TORSO!!! AND I'LL FORM: THE HEAD!!!!!!!

Sovereign Court

They never say it

Hunk says "I'M A LEG!" kind of randomly once.

Yeah, but was spoiled if you watched the developers vignettes leading up to the premiere.

Sovereign Court

I never watch that stuff.

I kinda miss the fab Zarkon though

Any Prince Zartan shenanigans?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Zartan?, you mean Lotor, right?

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

Yes. Ugh.

My childhood was soooooooo long ago!!!

Just finished watching the last episode. Must have been really into it since it seemed to end so abruptly... "Oh noes, we're in trouble!"... cut to end credits.

I do like the fact that they fought only 2 "ro-beasts" the entire season, and the castle is a frigging SPACESHIP! The Arus is not the center of the war campaign! lol


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

In the original series the castle could be used a s a space ship.

They only fought two robeast? what were the two they used?

Dark Archive

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Don't think they had names. If they were mentioned, I missed it.

Scarab Sages

Still a little goofy, but much better than I expected.

Spoilers:

I liked that Pidge is a girl this time (and was disappointed that it was an all boy Paladin team until the reveal).

Holy hell, the Princess is some kind of space chameleon incredible hulk!

So glad we've moved away from the whole 'less than a minute left of the episode, BLAZING SWORD!' formula.

I know some of those soldiers are supposed to be robots, but it sure seems like a lot of Galran's are getting straight up killed here.

It is strongly hinted that Zarkon may have been the original Black Paladin, or at the very least has the Paladin's Bayard.

Speaking of Zarkon, OMG is he some kind of mythic space martial? He solo'd a g+& d~@ned Lion!

I dig Haggar and her druids. Very much a marriage of science and magic there.

So? They are Galrans.

No I mean what did the robeast look like? powers/abilities?

Sovereign Court

Robeasts

Spoiler:

First one had a energy ball that he could fire and partially control midair with his right arm, and he had to recharge it every 3 hits. Looked like a humanoid something. Was made from a gladiator that Shiro beat while he was imprisoned.

Second had a lot of eye that he could shoot beams out of. In the end this guy they couldn't beat and a sort of Deus Ex Machina had to help them. Looked like a huge antropomorphic geco. Was made from some sort of lizard creature.

I just read that Netflix is releasing 13 episodes for Season 1. My account is showing only 11 available. Is that the same for others? Or should I contact Netflix customer service?


No there were only 11 episodes.


Episodes 1-3 are bundled as the pilot/premiere episode, with the remaining episodes shown singly.

So there are either 13 or 11 episodes, depending on how you count. I count 11 total, given the bundling of 1-3.

Ahh yeah, the pilot was pretty long...

So what is the princess like both personality wise and ability wise?
