TV Review - Voltron Season 3

Available on Netflix


Season 3 Thoughts
Okay, that was friggin short. Short but oh so good. If you have been following the Netflix series then you already know what to expect, great action, cool visuals, and an awesome story. This season picks up right where Season 2 left off. The paladins are without Shiro, Prince Lotor has been summoned since Zarkon is unconscious, and the universe has a small moment of peace. This season has a lot of nice little throwbacks to the original show from the 80's. We finally get the paladins as we know them from the 80's show with Keith as the leader. There is also an episode that has Sven in it complete with accent. I thought that was pretty cool of them to add him in that episode. I also thought that Lotor was done very well. I was a little worried about how he was going to be portrayed but any reservations I had were quickly gone as we got a clear look at what kind of character he is throughout this season. It will be interesting going forward what they do with the character of Lotor. This show does a great job of fleshing out their characters and giving their viewership way more questions than they have answers for at the moment.

If there is anything I didn't like about this season is the length. It is just too short. I don't mind seven episodes but there were a couple of the episodes that could have been longer than the standard 23 minutes. That is the only thing that I saw as a problem. I am aware that there will be more seasons but I think that they should not have to be held to the 23 minutes if they need to go over on an episode or two.


For Parents
It's Voltron. If they have seen the first two seasons then they will be alright. That being said it is only seven episodes so they will probably finish it pretty quickly.


Final Thoughts
This season was pretty good. I enjoyed it a lot, it's one of my favorite anime's that is out at the moment. The show has a nice mix of action, adventure, and comedy that keeps the viewer's attention. So far I highly recommend this series for fans of the old series as well as those curious about it as well. I give it 5 stars. What did you think about the season? What other 80's cartoon show would you like to see Netflix and Dreamworks get their hands on? Let's discuss in the comments and as always thanks for reading.
