Personally, I like Mech shows. I love how the big, shiny robots fight and transform and do all of their cool moves that can be done by pressing only one button or lever (you ever notice that?). Well, anyway, I like mechs.
This show is one of a great mind that created it. Many, many ahows have tried to copy the ever-captivating Voltron series (hey, where do you think Power Rangers got their ideas from?) However, I have heard rumors that it is a copy of yet another older anime, Ultraman. Well, Voltron was more popular anyway.
There really isn't too much of a storyline here. The people all have such... boring names with rather empty personalities. Names such as "Pidge" (who is EXTREMELY ANNOYING!!!!!), "Prince Lodorr", and "Princess Alura." There is a lot of really "Captain Obvious" statements in there. Lets say that the voltron team is being attacked by giant steel ropes which pull the castle they are in high into the air. They would make comments such as: "We must do something! The castle, which is being launched high into the air by giant steel ropes, will soom fall, which is not good." or, "Oh, no! It seems that we are being attacked by giant steel ropes!" You get the idea, no? By the way, that was a real episode plotline.
3/5 They really do try, I know they do, but... they need to try harder!
3/5 Can't... remember... anyone...except that annoying Pidge!
4/5 The things that they actually cover are in pretty good detail.
5/5 I love that cheesy stuff.
5/5 Er...not in this Cartoon Network version.
4/5 There is a lot of violence, and they find dead kings entombed in castles sometimes, too.
4/5 It's okay for the time it was made.
5/5 Ahhh, the worst you'll hear in this one is "Oh, no!" Not too mind-corrupting, is it?
4/5 I thought it was alright, not up to my mech standards, but then, almost anything pales in comparison to Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Totals: 42/50, or kicking it old skool. God, I'm a geek
Voltron.. ahh, the kind of mechs you grew up with. None of this new-fangled, skinny, anorexic looking ones that go berserk when Rei is near.. yes, Unit-00, I am talking to YOU. So, with that out of my way, Voltron is cool. Don't dismiss it as the 'Star Trek' kinda thing. It ain't Ster Trek. Or the Next Generation. OR Deep Space 9. Voltron is the old-skool-kickin-it sorta thing. Prince Lodorr (or Lotor) is kewl. He's cute! I like white hair, what can I say? So, his daddy is a psyko, and he wants Lodorr to take over Earth. Hey, it's his dying wish. And Lodorr wants somebody to love him. To be specific, Princess Alura. He thinks she's 'dead sexy'. Ok, so he never said that... but it's kinda obvious. Well, Alura thinks he's a mind-corrupting serial killer, and Lodorr swears he never did ANYTHING to those Cheerios! They are LYING! Oh, he never said that either.. but so Alura has summoned the Voltron team. And, the cool part is, SHE'S PART OF IT!!! Finally, a woman who doesn't sit and cry. Yes, Emeraude, I am talking to YOU!!!! STOP YOUR INCESSIVE WAILING!! Oh, I'll talk about that some other time.. heh heh... So they fight, are Captain Obvious, lose, win, cry, laugh, and 'teach you how to live, and teach you how to love'.. wait.. those are the monsters of rock. Sorry 'bout that.
4/5 Being yanked around by steel ropes doesn't do much for me.
4/5 So.. Pidge is HOW OLD?
4/5 I can't help it when the cheese incessively leaks!
5/5 Do you like corny? Well, I do, so I like the music..
5/5 Lodorr is getting friendly with Pidge, I tell ya! (I don't know if Pidge is a guy or girl, but if he's a guy, which I think he is, then that's just nasty. By the way, that was a joke. No, PIDGE is nasty. And that godawful nasal voice!)
5/5 Lodorr IS getting friendly with Pidge!! EEEP!! Oh, never mind, Pidge, Alura likes me now.
4/5 People die, things suddenly sprout extra appendages, and they come to life
5/5 be on the lookout for that sexy Pidge!
5/5 Oh, no!
5/5 Goo (goo is good)
Totals: 46/50, or rad!
TOTALS: 44/50!! OOOOH!
