Voltron Season 5 Review

Available on NetFlix


The Season
Voltron Season 5 has been released in all of its six-episode glory. This season there is some pretty significant story reveals and pretty dope action sequences. The story picks up right where season 4 left off with the team working with the exiled Prince Lotor to disrupt the Galra Empire. The Voltron team is still winning their battles against the empire and still not trusting Lotor completely. Which is smart by the way. The season did a good job of showing his good side as well as his slippery side. I just don't think that you can trust him and I give the writers mad props on that. As far as the action it is still the same high quality that you have seen in previous seasons. That's cool but the story this season does pick up as we see Lance go from goofball to a more serious character. By that I mean he has more serious moments than goofball moments as there is one episode in particular where Lance is being the Lance we've come to know. Pidge and Keith both have reunions of their own that make for pretty tense moments in the season. All in all, there wasn't anything that I really didn't like. If I have any complaint at all is that it is to short. Those six episodes really fly by especially when they are that good. I was hoping that they would get away from the 23-minute format and go to a longer one since the episode count is so short but that is not the case. Hopefully, season 6 will be soon because the cliffhanger for this season is very interesting.



For Parents
If you have seen any of the previous seasons then you should know what to expect by now. The kids will enjoy and you will enjoy it as well. This is one of those animated series where there is something for everyone.



Final Thoughts
Another stellar season in my opinion. I give it a 5 out of 5 STARS. If you haven't been watching I suggest you add to your list as it is worth it. Have you seen the season? What do you think about it? Let's talk about it in the comments and as always thanks for reading.
