Fridays, 3:00 AM ET on Netflix
Five teenagers fight evil to save the universe in those five robotic lions uniting to form Voltron.
After over 30 years, I've finally been able to put a face to the name. I recall when I was a kid owning a Voltron action figure which I loved, yet having grown up in the 90s I never actually knew much about who Voltron actually was other than that he was sort of like a Power Rangers megazord. So first I'd like to thank Netflix for re-creating this wonderful story. I binged all 11 episodes in one night. Went to bed at 6 am. Voltron Legendary Defender is absolutely fantastic. The characters are so animated, authentic and full of life. The voice acting is phenomenal, especially the part of Hunk played by Tyler Labine (Reaper, The Boss). The action is surprisingly terrific. As a lifetime fan of Gundam anime, I'd have to say the action in Voltron was far superior. It wasn't crazy flying around shooting bullets at each other in space. Lets just say Voltron isn't the greatest weapon in the universe by name only. You get to see first hand just how devastating...ly awesome he really is. I can't recommend this enough to all fans of anime, fans of Transformers Prime, fans of The Last Airbender and Korra, fans of Pacific Rim, and so forth. I'd only stop short of recommending it to my 65 year old father.
