Voltron Force: Army of One Review

We are getting close to the end of Season One of Voltron Force on Nicktoons. This all started on June 16, 2011, with the 3-part New Defenders Trilogy. We have been on a wild ride ever since. From the introduction of the Cadets, including the back story on how the old Voltron Series led into this series, to the Cadets becoming full-fledged members of the Voltron Force team, we have seen some ...

Voltron Force: Roots of Evil Review

Voltron Force: Roots of Evil took the Voltron Force in a totally new direction. We really didn’t think there was going to be a change in the dynamics between the Voltron Force Pilots and the Cadets in Season 1. In this episode, Larmina proves her worth, time and time again, until she ultimately makes the move no Cadet has made to this point. She replaces her Aunt Allura as the Voltron ...

Isaac Asimov’s collection of 9 stories share a theme around the interaction of humans, robots and morality. Asimov had originally wanted his collection to be called, “Mind and Iron”, but the publisher wanted the “I, ...

Voltron Force: Dradin, Baby, Dradin Review

Remember last week how we said 5 was a magic number for Voltron? This week, the 5 “C”‘s play a big part in the episode, “Dradin, Baby, Dradin”. The 5 “C”‘s are Color, Cameo, Campy, Conflict and Convention. “Dradin, Baby, Dradin” had to be the most Colorful episode of all the Voltron Force episodes. Just like the Casinos in Las ...

Voltron Force: Five Forged Review

When it comes to Voltron, 5 is a magic number. 5 Pilots in 5 Lions come together to form the mighty Defender of the Universe. As we find out from watching “Five Forged”, there are 5 Planets that each contributed to the creation of Voltron. Pidge’s Planet, Balto, provided the technical designs for the big guy, forming 5 Lions into 1 giant robot. Ariel was where Voltron was ...

Community goes anime

While Community is one of the funniest and most popular shows on network TV these days, it really doesn’t belong on Toonbarn since it’s a live action show, without even the tiniest of CG effects. That all changed last December 1, for a single day at least, as NBC’s Community joined in on the 80s anime parody bandwagon with an episode that casts the entire cast of community college as ...

Download Voltron Defender of the Universe on PSN and XBLA

When there’s a whole universe to defend, you’d better be a pretty big robot. Or, better yet, be a pretty big robot comprised of 5 pretty big lion robots. Think we’re joking around? Just ask Voltron, the start of the 1980s Classic Media cartoon as well as the recently relaunched series on Nickelodeon’s Nicktoons, Voltron Force. As if running two amazingly popular ...

Voltron Force: Brains Review

If the Zombie Apocalypse is going to occur in our lifetimes, it may as well be started with a Haggarium infestation in the most technological area of the Galaxy. Planet Balto is the focus of this Voltron Force episode (Voltron Force: Episode 16: Brains). Balto is Pidge’s home Planet, and his brother Chip still lives there. So do a ton of other Ninja Scientists. That’s right. ...
