    Chuffed as fuck that Pidge is some kind of non binary for realsies and i called it hardddd on only ep 1

    They reveal theyre afaib but keep dressing 'like a boy' instead of reverting back to their 'girlclothes'

    Only on ep 8 tho so still could go very binary, but in my mind just supes nonbinary and the show doesnt bave the language for it

    It's pretty telling that we had an episode where she admitted to everyone that she's female, but didn't change her appearance despite having no reason to keep pretending to be someone else if the sole motivation was hiding from Earth's space school principal.

    Pidge's secret
    So did she enroll with her real first name and a fake last name? Or I guess that's not addressed simply because they didn't want to call a character by a different name halfway through.

    Her real name is Katie. Shiro calls her by that name when he reveals to her that he knows her secret. She enrolled as Pidge Gunderson.

    I'm not saying anyone is wrong about Pidge's non-binary ness but her lack of appearance change is likely because they only seem to have the one outfit that they came in judging from everyone else wearing the same thing aside from sleep robes

    Well, I mean, she can't uncut her hair, and it doesn't look like any of them brought any extra Earth clothes with them.

    I guess she could have asked the princess if she had any leftover clothes from childhood, maybe? What other options does she have?

    Just finished the season. That was crazy awesome.
    Zarkon used to pilot the black lion. That's nuts.

    That guy is stupidly powerful.

    Good thing Keith unlocked a new weapon at the last second, huh?

    Also, neat Cliffhanger to end the season on.

    Also re: Allura, full spoilers
    While she never pilots a lion, it kind of takes away some of the sting when she shoulder checks a robot to death straight through a steel bulkhead

    like it just ain't even a thing, too. Allura is She-Hulk, fuck a bunch of lions.
    That was fantastic.

    Although she's probably a smidge less strong when she isn't amazon sized.

    I doubt it. Everything about the show portrays her as a powerful, but inexperienced, future ass-kicker. Reminds me a lot of Katara.

    I'm sure she'll be piloting a lion at some point, or maybe some other Voltron Force if they introduce those. She so desperately wants to fight.

    I kinda exploded in excitement over this show over in D&D. Put simply.. I want season 2 now. And I want a blu-ray of Season 1 even sooner.

    Oh she's definitely much stronger than a human by default, given she didn't get why Shiro was so surprised at seeing her shoulder slam a steel door off its hinges.

    I just meant that she's probably a little less strong when she's not seven feet tall.

    And if this show is going to follow in the footsteps of the old school, she will end up replacing one of the pilots. She ended up piloting the blue lion in the original show. But I'm okay with her as is. She's already pretty awesome and has plenty to do. I'm not loving her accent, though.

    And yes, I need season 2 asap.

    Man that was a sudden, but not terrible, ending.

    Whole lot of developments in that final episode
    Zarkon is the original Black Paladin!

    Bayards can turn into all kinds of shit!

    The lions have multiple weapons!

    Shiro was almost corrupted by Haggar!

    There is a Voltron sympathizer double agent within Galra!

    This show is fine but it isn't really doing it for me. This is gonna get me shunned but I just dont think Voltron is all that interesting. This season mostly just made me wish for an america remake of the original gundam series made by this same production group.

    I've never been a giant robot guy so Voltron is just kind of okay for me

    I think the lions are cooler than Voltron itself

    But luckily the Paladins and Alura and Corin and Zarkon are all super great and entertaining so I am into the show for them.

    I think Hunk ended up being my favorite character

    All of the Paladins and Alura and Corin are great though and no one really felt like they got the short end of the character stick

    Also boy howdy do I love the Paladin flight suits. If I cosplay ever those are gonna be at the top of my list.

    The tone of OG Voltron isnt really the same either. I would like to see the story of Gundam but with this tone. Maybe just a touch more serious. Like third season Avatar serious?

    Yeah, Gundam 079's not ideal for the format. There's a lot of comic relief, but the primary tone is "So, war. It sucks a big one, huh?" A huge part of the narrative format is building up sympathetic characters over several episodes, get you to care...

    And then brutally murdering them and moving on, because c'est la guerre.

    Not quite the same.

    I really like that the characters are well worn archetypes but don't feel like generic cut outs

    Like Pidge is the nerdy science whiz but also has a lot more going on, Hunk is the friendly big guy but he's also kind of an engineering whiz and is more than a walking punchline, Lance is...well, he and Keith are probably the least fleshed out of the group but they're still a fun take on the pilot rival duo concept, Shiro is the mysterious badass but isn't a loner and likes the team and cracks jokes, Alura isn't just an aloof alien princess and Corin is actually pretty dang competent for all of his slapstick blunder.

    season spoilers just to be safe...
    I don't think I remember the Yellow Lion's mouth opening at any point. When he does start doing that, it's gonna be impressive.

    Also Pidge's lion can cloak thanks to her, but it has to have some inherent power like the fire & ice bros.. can't wait to see that.


    Final note: I swear in the intro you see Shiro using the black .. er.. whatever those weapons were called. But we see the big bad still having his.. I wonder when they'll get it back?
