A New Voltron for a New Generation
25 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

I was an 8 year old kid when I first watched Voltron, and then for years I annoyed my family by constantly watching and rewatching the shows. Voltron: Legendary Defender allows fans to not only enjoy brand new story lines, but also share those same experiences we had as children with our children as well.

There have been some changes to the new series, so if you're going to compare the two shows and be critical you will find much to criticize. However, I love the changes and the new format that they use to tell the stories. Instead of a episodic story arc where every episode has a beginning, middle, and end this new series takes advantage of the Netflix platform by telling a more complete story line.

If you're a fan of Robotech and Easter Eggs then keep your eye open in the pilot episode. You'll be in for a treat!
