The Second Season of Voltron: Legendary Defender is Way Better Than Expected

The second season of Voltron: Legendary Defender came out on Jan 20th, the same day as Inauguration Day here in the States, and like many others, I wanted to watch it in lieu of watching the inauguration. But I ended up watching the ceremony with my family, and then I made the decision to go get drunk instead of binge-watching Netflix. (Note: We at LGG&F do not formally advocate getting drunk as a coping mechanism, even if one’s country is crumbling into a pile of orange Cheeto dust.) However, I’ve now finished the series, and I’m happy to report that I liked it a great deal more than I thought I would, given my lukewarm review of the first season.

As usual, I had fun binge-watching it, but… I didn’t really have any strong feelings about it one way or the other. It certainly has potential, but it hasn’t quite blossomed yet.

It's basically a giant cat mecha anime, in space.
