I ran into some old voltron cartoon tapes back in the day. One was a 30 minute episode, the other was a 90 minute episode. It took me a week to watch; it was so bad.

The plot of every episode: (done 3 times in the hour and a half episode)
-Bad guy comes in
-Voltroners jump in their robot cats to fight and eventually get their asses kicked
-Bad guy comes back
-Voltroners form up into their large robot and do some damage but eventually start getting their asses kicked again
-Bad guy won't go away
-Voltroners form their sword and split the bad guy with on fell swoop, thus ending the bad guy with a simple manuver that could have been done in the first 3 minutes of the episode
-The end

Well it's a tried and true method. If it ain't broke, don't fix it?

Voltron was way better than anything Power Rangers ever hoped to be.

I've watched the first four episodes, and I've liked what I've seen. In talking to a friend, he said that they tried to please every Voltron fan and - in his mind - they succeeded. I find it difficult to disagree with his sentiment.

Well, I have enjoyed the fact that there isn't a new RoBeast every episode that Voltron has to fight lol.... I would say that I think they underused ______'s sorcoress aide though.

I don't think Net Flix has put their own shows out on physical media yet. I could be wrong though...

My daughter (13 y.o.) thought that was true about Pidge all along, so we got a good laugh out of it.

I randomly remember as kids when we played with Voltron toys if we had a second girl in our group she always played with Pidge as a girl. Guess it was too obvious even back then.
