Episode Average

After eight season and 78 episodes, the Netflix original series Voltron: Legendary Defender has come to an end. The series has been filled with twists and turns, ups and downs, and has kept the fans on edge time after time. Will the show land the ending or will it crash and burn at the finish line?

Summary

The Voltron Team must stop Hagar, now known as Honerva from destroying the universe in her attempt to make her ambitions come true.

Writing

The season made sure to maintain the tension to the end of the series. Honerva and the lengths she is willing to go through to obtain her goal is menacing. The show also takes the time to tie up a lot of the loose ends which were introduced in previous seasons.

There also is a much more comedy filled episodes. One of them, “Clear Day” has a lot of great energy much like “Space Mall” or “Monsters & Mana.” Though the comedy may be to prepare for the ending which is geared to make sure the fans have an emotional impact from how things play out. There also is an epilogue which will definitely have a lot of people talking for years to come. For better or worse, the series deserves recognition for what it is able to accomplish with its finale.

Animation

This season utilizes different visual styles and techniques to help ensure the emotional impact resonates properly. There is a callback to the original Voltron series, complete with original footage and Pidge taking advantage of having a cartoon based on the team’s exploits. It is a joy to behold.

There are also great effect and details thrown into different episodes. “Day Forty-Seven” features documentary style camera work to help to showcase the life of the crew aboard the Atlas. Also the last two episodes features extensive details which will need to be rewatched again to appreciate all the work which went into them. It’s uplifting to see the series didn’t cut corners as it made its way towards the end.

Voltron

Conclusion

This season was able to capture the energy which was missing in the previous one. A lot more comedy is featured and each episode feels like it has flow of the first and second seasons which were by far the best. Though many may feel differently about how the series came to a close but the emotional impact will resonate with many. Farewell Voltron: Legendary Defender. You were a fantastic show and one which be checked out by any who still haven’t taken the time to enjoy the experience.
