Finally made my way through the second season of Voltron on Netflix and have been spamming my tumblr with Pidge squee - I realized during a scene where she says "curse my short arms" that Pidge is totally my spirit animal, lol. And then stumbled across this video recording of a podcast with Pidge's voice actor, Bex Taylor-Klaus, as guest, and omg, she IS Pidge! It's completely hilarious and adorable XD The podcast is quite fun, too - four geeky women, w00t! although there's so much laughing and talking all at once I found it a bit hard to actually hear what they were saying a lot of the time, but I didn't really mind because it was just fun to listen to them cracking one another up:

I found the podcast for Voltron Legendary Defender- Afterbuzz TV on my podcast app on my phone and downloaded the most recent episode, listened to it today while doing errands and cleaning stuff at work before I opened for the day. This one had Shiro's voice actor as guest, and d'aww, he seems such a lovely person, too, and very much a Space Dad himself. They go off on all sorts of tangents and bring up tumblr and fanart and shipwars, so that's fun too.

Looks like they've got Afterbuzz's for really just about everything - Transformers RID, Steven Universe, Legend of Korra, Agent Carter, Supernatural, Arrow - if you have a favorite show and you want to listen to folks gleefully discussing every little detail, this might be up your ally! (Also excellent for distraction if you tend to wake up at 4am trying to figure out How To Save The Entire Country With Just the Right Email hrm >_>)

I just finished season 2 tonight, myself! I was so ...meh about a Voltron reboot, honestly, because that cartoon (along with Transformers) was my childhood (notice the robot theme, too?), but both seasons of this show are so fun--they took the great parts of original and added more fun stuff. Pidge being one of them!

But I have to admit, little fangirl-crush me SWOONED at Haggar's last words in the season. Lotor? Oh, yes PLEASE!!

LOL you probably had a fulfilling and rich childhood. I had chores and...whatever cartoons I could watch before school.

As for Lotor.... Notice the 80s rock god hair. I doubt he'd look like that since they've made the Galra look so different, but...I hope he's still dreamy. (He also had a seriously unrequited crush on Allura).

Ooh. cool. Still haven't got Netflix, and was never into Voltron....Battle Of The Planets/G Force. But I'll definitely dig around Afterbuzz when I have some free time, thanks for the rec!

Think I remember the robot! Years since I've seen it myself. Nods, Voltron looks fun.

Eeeeeeeeee! I loved their commentary on RID15! <333 Welp, now I really have to catch up on Voltron... ::back of hand to forehead:: ;DDD

Space Dad Shiro is voiced by the same actor who voiced Jack in TF: Prime! :DDD I quite like him! And Space Dad is...oh gosh it's hard to pick favorites, but him and Hunk and Pidge are my triad, I think. <3333333333 And given the original, I guess I'm thankful we've had so much of Shiro, instead of having him disappeared to a dungeon somewhere for two seasons only to show up in one episode later all super-angsted up... XD (I'd completely forgotten that Sven hadn't actually died until someone was talking about it on tumblr, and how he ends up with Princess Rumelle!!! And I went, "!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH YEAH!" XDDD To be fair it was a thing I saw once, thirty years ago... XDDD)

Hmmm, and I still don't have a Voltron icon. u.u

I'm going to have to add RID to my phone listening options, too! Oh dear, poor you, having to watch all those episodes *patpatpat* XD

Oh golly, I can totally hear that now! I always liked Jack's voice, hee! *nodnod* Shiro, Hunk, Pidge, most definitely - and there's sad lack of Hunk time in season 2! Hope he gets some fun stuff in next season. Although Keith is growing on me a bit - I have a theory that maybe he just doesn't get how to human a lot of the time (like when Lance was trying to teach him to cheer and he just. Didn't. Get it.) because he's part Galra and his brain just works differently, and he's making heroic attempts just to be anything approaching "normal human interaction."

No killing off of Space Dad! He can disappear for an episode. Two max. And *some* super-angst is allowable but ONLY if super-cuddles are applied. So I have spoken, so let it be done *waves hand airily*

Heeee! I got to ep 4 last night...

Why am I starting to get the feeling that the part of Zeus is being played by Zarkon????? Like keep the Thunderdick in your pants, many halvsies Galra ARE there????? o.O Not just Zeus, but xeno!Zeus... ::rolls around::

Let there be hurt, but only if there is comfort after! I am in favor of this plan! <3
