Goofs

In order to activate the Lions, each team member had to insert a special key. In many instances when Chief is starting the Golion forming sequence, his key can still be seen on his tunic, but then is also seen on the panel of his lion, and then moves in the same way - left to right - as it already did when first being used to activate the Black Lion.

A Darker Voltron
26 September 1999 | by Arus-2See all my reviews

For any viewer who is lucky to see an episode from Hyaku Ju Oh Golion will know that when Golion was picked up to be dubbed as Voltron The Tv Series, it was up against a tough time where violence on Tv was at the forefront of concern for what was shown to children.

Golion is the story of 5 teenagers who return to Earth after World War III has destroyed much of it. Distraught at seeing everything in ruins, the teenagers are captured by the Galra Empire and soon taken to Planet Galra to be used as slaves and to entertain the citizens in twisted tournaments. The teenagers manage to escape and make it to Planet Altea where the Princess Fahra (or Farla) gives them the secret to forming the greatest protector of the far universe, Golion.

Since most fans are familiar with Voltron, Golion is somewhat a darker and more violent version of the edited form Americans have seen. But most of the scenes edited out, did not detract from what the series taught - that teamwork and perseverance will succeed in the end.
