Even with the pacing quibbles, Legendary Defender is standing on the cusp of some pretty fantastical plot elements just waiting to unfold that could evolve the show even further, and that's an exciting prospect.

This proves that Voltron Legendary Defender is the best show on TV.

Jan 2, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Overall, this was a thrilling chapter in the Voltron story and, though it was short on episodes, it was absolutely massive in terms of action and world-building.

The already acclaimed series is not only hitting its stride at the peak of its second act but accelerating toward something that could top the original in terms of social relevance.

    What more can i say i like this show, its good.

    Still suffering from split-season shortage, dominated by Allura's quest for knowledge and leaving us with a cliffhanger as Keith discovers something new about his heritage. But some beautiful animation in the Lotor/Zarkon fight.

    After a problematic fourth season, Voltron gets back on track in its fifth season. While I don't find it as good as the first three seasons, it still has all the awesome art and fun action we've come to expect. This time, the narrative is more intriguing fully ending one story arc whilst starting a few new ones. The voice acting is at its best here. You can convey the emotion the VAs put into their performances representing the growing character development. It's a damn impressive feat for a show to put tons of compelling story in only 6 21-minute episodes, even if I still don't find it as good as the first three seasons (but better than the fourth season)

    Another superb season that finds team voltron joining forces with Prince lotor to finally take down his father, Emperor Zarkon. The vocal cast is superb, as usual, especially A.J. Locascio as Lotor, who comes off as geniune with the right hint of darkness, so you never sure if he's playing the Paladins or not (or maybe both). The action & animation remain top notch, and the series to take surprising directions from the original, partically Keith's guerran heritage. Simply put, this series is not just as good as you remember the original, it's better.
