"Code Lyoko" tells the story of a group of students who uncover a parallel universe called Lyoko inside a super-computer that is threatened by a renegade program named XANA that could destroy the world. It's up to four boarding-school students named Jeremy, Yumi, Ulrich, and Odd to help a humanoid being inside Lyoko named Aelita to stop the rogue program XANA and his plans to attack their world. Jeremy, who is in love with Aelita, struggles through season 1 to find a way to "materialize" Aelita, so she can become human by exiting the scanners that connect Odd, Ulrich, and Yumi to Lyoko. If Jeremy accomplishes this, he will be able to shut down Lyoko and defeat XANA. We witness Jeremy finally materializes Aelita, and accomplish his dream. The group deactivate Lyoko, but XANA apparently infected Aelita with a virus before she was materialized so that if XANA goes, she does too! In the beginning of season 2, we witness the dawn of new technology. Jeremy programs vehicles into Lyoko for ... Written by

The number of skateboards and the presence/absence of Jeremy's scooter at the school end of the sewer often conflicts with the number of team members already at the factory. One of the worst examples is in Episode 6: "Cruel Dilemma". Jeremy calls Yumi while riding his scooter toward the factory but later, when Odd arrives at the school end of the sewer, Jeremy's scooter is still there with all the skateboards. See more »
Code Lyoko is an action adventure show that goes further than action and adventure. It goes beyond a group of good guys fighting attacks from bad guys. The "good guys" are complex, flawed characters who have feelings beyond "Yo, Joe! Let's get 'em!". The minor bad guys have their own feelings and complexities, and can be sympathized with at times, although they are usually real little horrors who usually get their come-uppance at the hands of the good guys.
There is one true "bad guy" without virtues and one "good guy" without any real vices, but that's excusable since neither of them is human.
The dialogue is hilarious. The verbal battles between Odd and Sissy are sophisticated to an almost Shakespearian degree. Sissy's monologues are the only soliloquies I have ever seen and heard in a cartoon show.
There are an amazing number of goofs in the show and a lot of stock scenes are re-used, but this does not really detract from the enjoyment of the show.
All-out action fans will hate this show because it's not all-out action. What it is, however, is a refreshing change and hopefully a pointer for the future.
