The first three episodes and last three episodes of the season are absolutely superb. The premiere draws you in regardless of whether or not you know the original Voltron by introducing the viewer to three relatable and fully developed characters who are training under the direction of the original characters to eventually become pilots of Voltron lions. One can see quite a lot of character development in them, and most importantly, in Daniel, who sometimes seems like a Percy Jackson figure, but is really a slightly irresponsible figure who gets a little more mature as the series progresses. At the end of the season, in the last two minutes, is a surprise that is the only reason why the show could possibly deserve a second season. Overall, this show has a good storyline, but it is knocked around by loads of filler episodes. Most are entertaining, but some are a little bit too much. Sometimes the show also gets a little too sappy. It has weaknesses, but if you liked the original, you'll be surprised to see that this version at least surpassed the original despite having more pointless filler.
