I'm personally not feeling Seasons 3/4, not only do I feel like we are going back to the status quo but I feel as if the Galra are barely a threat now, I don't know I feel as if most of Voltron's problems are based on their personal goals versus fighting the Galra also I don't care how Hunk is put into the corner.

I didn't think about it like that but you're right, and yes Hunk has been ignored for a while and that sucks. I still feel the greatest problem is the writers don't want to write a Voltron cartoon but are using Voltron to write the story they wanted.j

I'm just not a fan of it even if the story isn't, I like enough to continue watching it and I will finish it though, season 4 or I guess Season 5 should come out around February even if its just only a few episodes.

Just watched the latest season, 6 episode and the new season comes out June 15th, I think I actually prefer this splitting up the seasons, we get new episodes every 3 1/2 months more or less.

This season was fine, there was a lot of action though it also had some slow parts, oddly enough there was no real threat for many episodes. Weird how the war just abruptly ended for the most part. Season ended without any real cliffhanger, I guess they still need to get rid of the factions but whatever.

The whole show is a mess, mostly because as I've stated it's ashamed of being Voltron and it wants to be something else and maybe if it were not Voltron the show could be far more interesting since it's basically holding it down at this point. So much could've been done with the original lore and the 76 episode order instead of this take which would've been better with a new IP.

Sucks that Shiro is still the leader, I loved when they got rid of him and shook things up but due to fan whining they went back to the original line up which was never meant to last this whole time.

I'm a new fan and just started watching Season 5 (I skipped all the other seasons before it).

I think Shiro is fine but I'm annoyed that he snapped at Lance (told him to shut up) and generally being an asshole to everyone else. I mean he's hot but being a crazy ass doesn't help his case.







I generally saw pics/arts of Lance and Keith together with the team, so to have him away from them is jarring. Hope the future season will put him back together where he belongs.



So I think I'll start Season 1 now that I'm catched up with the current season.

So after learning season 5 was just released I decided to like always binge watch it and man does splitting up the seasons in two kinda hurt the show imo. I mean I get what they are doing and trying to ape off the success of shows like Game of thrones and Walking dead by giving mid seasons finales but man is it a pain to endure. But you know despite all of that I did enjoy this season, Lotor being sort of a wild card is interesting, Shiro(or the being that looks like Shiro) being a plant to the high preistess and Allura interacting with Lotor. What I dislike is that muh boi Hunk being left into a corner again. But still good season

I was hoping Allura would actually get her own White Lion so the team can settle back to where they originally started.

Nice that we finally met Keith's mom.




But Fun Robot was the best part of this season. Especially the scene where it was launched into space while "Amazing Grace" was used for music

I don't see the significance in meeting Keith's mom in this season tbh. Or anyone's mom in any show - do we need to see April's mom? Goku's mom? Vegeta' mom? Batman's mom?

Nope. Such a meh side story tbh. I rather they focus on the main and supporting characters.

1.Keith's missing mom and his Galra ancestry has been a thing in this show since season 2 and his mom is part of the Blade of Marmora

2. The death of Batman's parents has been the his motivation since decades so bad example there.

You know I personally have sort of a love/hate relationship with this show and one of the things I don't like about it is that most of the Galra are too similar. I know there is a story behind it but when the 3 of the contenders for the crown are the same "Grrr strength is absolute" type personalities its kinda boring and the one character who isn't like that gets killed in the end.

There will be a DVD set for Voltron: Legendary Defender coming out on July 12th. It'll have the first two seasons, and no special features.

I rather watch it on Netflix in HD than spending money on the barren and SD dvd. Their marketing dept needs to be fired.

Well...there's a thought. Then again, we still don't have the 2012 TMNT series on Blu-ray.

You know after hearing Keith's dad talk I'm going to be beyond pissed if we don't hear Keith with a Southern accent.

Just finished season 6 and it's so lack luster, the season finale was hype but they just mishandle so many things that instead of it being an awesome show you think "well it had some cool moments" Slight spoilers for S6 ahead I guess.


----------------------------------------------------------------
Most of my complains from the show are still on: Music is not memorable enough but at least I know now the classic music is not there because of copyright.

The Lotor heel turn did not work for me since he had already had a face-heel turn, what was the point of redoing it, in fact it almost feels like we're all the way back to S3 or 4 in terms of status quo, what was even the point of the last few seasons if everything is back to how things were?

The shiro reveal was weak but I'm glad he's gone for good now, reviving him because of fan backlash was a big mistake. Again we're back to the Status quo of a few seasons back which was far more interesting. I also like that Kieth is finally the leader we always hoped.

Not enough Voltron in the show named Voltron but that final fight almost made up for it, I wish we had more mech action in this show. They clearly still not have enough experience animating voltron even 6 seasons in because they barely ever feature him but I'm glad he got so much focus in that final episode.

That Galra blonde girl we see this season is such a better design for Princess Allura, brown allura is a cool design as well but that is not the princess. Speaking of Allura, I'm glad she's finally piloting a lion once again.

I continue to have a love/hate relationship with this show, so many cool things going for it only for them to waste them. Let's see where things go, since it's a new page I'll repost my wish list for the rest of the 78 confirmed episodes we'll be getting. We're at 52 now so that means we have 4 more "split" seasons or two more 13 episode seasons whichever way you want to take a look at how Netflix handled the show after season 2:
Vehicle Voltron episode (only 1 episode come on)
Voltrex/Stealth Voltron (both awesome designs)
Classic Theme (even if for the final episode only)
Sven to join the "real" universe (Maybe now that Shiro is gone for good)
Robotic Prince Lothor ( I guess it can happen now that he's "dead")
The Crew from the voltron revival in the early 2010s, even if just random characters we see one day.
