Review: Netflix's Voltron "Legendary Defender"

When I first learned that Netflix would be releasing a new Voltron animated series, I was not thrilled. I chocked it up to be another "Hollywood Remake" cash cow, just waiting to crash and burn. Boy was I wrong ! What I enjoy most about the show is that,the new show pays tribute to the original in all the right ways, staying honest to its characters and relationships, but giving them tight scripts that hearken to 80's TV puns, quips & dialogue without losing sight of the need to carry everything forward. The animation is top-notch and I love the music ! It hearkens to the originals amazing synths and vocoders, and it's good for the source material. So if you grew up loving Voltron,watch this show!
