Welcome back, Couch Commandos! You know the drill. We’re here to talk about the latest MCU joint: THE ETERNALS. Once again, I stand my ground while my co-hosts are less forgiving of this Marvel entry. Click on in and enjoy!
With the new Voltron: Legendary Defender TV series on Netflix winning over new fans, it’s never been a better time to get invested in robots that combine with other robots to form giant robots. Voltron has always held mass geek appeal, and is no stranger to the collectible figurine scene. Now Bandai Shogukan has announced a new figure, a Voltron Super Mini-Pla (model kit) that fans can assemble themselves. The kit snaps together and requires no glue.
Ok, just so I can get this out of the way, I STILL hate how Netflix is handling Voltron in terms of episode count. While the first few seasons were full-on 13-episode seasons, the recent “seasons” have been either 6 or 7. It’s honestly very frustrating, and this trend continues with Voltron Legendary Defender Season 05, which is a mere 6 episodes long. This means, if you binge it, you’ll be done in two hours. It’s really annoying, and I’d rather have the full season than two halves of one. But…if you look past that though, you’ll find this is probably the best “season” of the bunch.
I’m of two minds about Voltron Legendary Defender, especially this fourth season. On one hand, the writers clearly know when to bring the intensity, the game-changing episodes, the great moments, the beautiful music and more. But…then there’s times where I have no idea what they’re doing, and part of that is the reason why Voltron Legendary Defender Season 04 is so confusing.
Voltron Legendary Defender is easily becoming one of the best seasonal shows on Netflix, I mean that knowing (and seeing) all the Marvel shows. In a way, it’s becoming as popular as it was in the 80’s when it first released, and that’s saying something. Fans have eagerly waited for Season 03 to arrive, and it’s finally here. The problem, is that though you could argue that these episodes are some of the best the series has ever offered, it has some very fatal drawbacks.
UPDATE!!!!: Teaser for Season 03 shown! Trailer below!
Netflix has revealed that a third season of Voltron: Legendary Defender is coming, and it’s coming soon. In fact, it’s coming August 4th, and to celebrate, they’ve released the first trailer for season 03.
I fully admitted that when I watched the first season of Voltron: Legendary Defender, it was my first time ever watching a Voltron cartoon. I knew who Voltron was loosely, but I didn’t know the characters or worlds. All that being said, I loved the first season, and when Season 02 came out, I was eager to watch that as well. Thankfully, the season is just as good as the original. However, it doesn’t really improve upon it.
DreamWorks TV and Netflix have released a new trailer for the upcoming second season of Voltron: Legendary Defender. You can check out the new video in the player below.
Though officially confirmed in January, and hinted to be coming to Netflix before the end of the year, New York Comic Con revealed that Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 02 will debut in January.
For many, Voltron is a fond memory from their childhood. In the US, Voltron came before Power Rangers, Beetleborgs, or many of the 90’s shows that had teenagers using mechs of some kind to combine together and save the world. Yet, because it was in the 80’s, some don’t remember what Voltron was, or why it was so influential. Now, thanks to DreamWorks, Voltron is back, via a Netflix series, that brings the legendary robot into the modern era and with great results.
Voltron made its long awaited return via the Netflix Series Voltron: Legendary Defender. It debuted with an 11-episode season in June, and ended on quite a cliffhanger. Now, via SDCC and a tweet, we can confirm that Voltron will not only be getting a second season, but it will debut this year!
