My thoughts on Voltron: Legendary Defender Season 2
Things I loved:
–THE MALL EPISODE
–Cree Summer as the fake Weblum and the quote that came with it!
“If I can’t see ya, I can’t kill ya”
–Zarkon is out of comission now
–THOSE ADORABLE PUFFBALLS FROM THE 1ST EP
–The adorable pet thing that just says YUP
Things I liked:
–Keith and Hunk bonding
–Galra Keith, despite my protests of how stupid it would be, was handled well.
–Keith did not become purple and furry after this discovery!
–Not much screentime about Allura’s problem with Keith being Galra because it’s stupid for her to have a problem with someone she trusts over ancestry.
Things I hated:
–I’m gonna get this one out of the way because it’s the main reason I watch this show. LACK OF KLANCE. Granted the elevator scene was funny but it was really the only major interaction between the two all season so I don’t understand why everyone is so happy about it. I liked the slow burn of their relationship in season one but granted none of the characters except Keith really got an arc this season so… I guess I can forgive? Plus Lauren Montgomery says LGBT stuff is on the way so it was probably in season 3 granted how long animation takes to do and they are probably well into production since this season was made before season 1 was airing.
–There weren’t enough character arcs so much of the show was “LET’S GO AFTER THIS GALRA FLEET AND FORM VOLTRON”. There were almost no quiet characters moments or room for the characters to interact (
except the glorious mall episode) and become more fleshed out because of the PEW PEW KILL GALRA
–Going off that, way too plot heavy when I could give a flipping quiznak about. I watch the show for the characters not the stupid villains who are honesty SO BAD IT’S NOT EVEN FUNNY
–the villains just get more boring and terrible. DEAR GAWD, will Prince Lotor be that bland?! I hope not.
–Ladies man Lance is getting real old real fast. Can’t he hit on some boys too? Bi Lance plz.
–No Allura in princess dresses, her outfits were always so pretty.
B (solid but needed vast improvement, season 1 was better)
