I kind of felt like Cy was the single worst voice over I've ever heard in an animated series... granted, I don't watch many cartoons. Also, these past few months have been a nightmare for me, so maybe I'm just in a bad mood, and having a harder time enjoying things.

In the episode Pop Rocks, though I don't think he had too many lines.

@Mega Spyro, I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong, but I think it was the episode with Pop Fizz and Wolf Gang's musical career.

Yeah, he sounded more like he did in the SSA trailers. Tbh, I don't think I could've handled a more game accurate voice. That's one change I'm glad they made.

@ZapNorris So? It's a tv series, not a Youtube series. If he can't voice act, then don't hire him. His voice was awful.

Anyway, I just finished the series, and while I've voiced my opinion that I didn't like this series, I loved the final episode. It made up for a lot of things. Those last ten minutes were fantastic, and the story went to some really cool places. Even though I disliked this show, that final episode got me excited for the second season. Great ending.
Was that Malefor or the Darkness that Kaosandra and Eon apparently made a deal to keep out of Skylands?

One hundred percent THE DARKNESS. Malefor was never a "Seal out of the universe completely" villain.

Hex was never a student either. So i mean, this show clearly isn't that loyal to the lore of the games and comics, so we can't rely too much on what we know. Nevertheless, I'd say it's probably the Darkness as well. If it is, I hope he's handled better than he was in Superchargers. I hated the changed voices in this, but whoever that was, his voice was so cool.
Bionichute Yellow Sparx Gems: 1889

His voice was a lot more what you'd expect from THE DARKNESS. Both are good, though.

No man, this guy was like the Darkness from the incredible and under-rated videogame (and awesome comic series, but we're talking about voices) called The Darkness. Oh man, I really want to see more of that character. That scene was done so well.

So I watched the whole thing. Let me preface my opinions by saying I own none of the games/toys/merchandise/etc. and have only watched gameplay footage and cutscenes on the internets.

With that said, I think this is something that someone with no context whatsoever can sit down and enjoy it. The writing isn't groundbreaking... it treads your typical kids show themes like "The Real Super Power of Teamwork!" and "Accept responsibility for your actions." But the dynamic between the characters and strong writing makes up for it. As far as criticism goes, it seems like the season couldn't really make up its behind between whether it wanted to be a slice of life comedy series, or an overarching adventure/comedy series. So it went for a hodge-podge that can come off a bit awkward. Personally, I thought it was okay, and I like that there was continuity between the episodes... unlike a certain other video game-based TV series *cough*Sonic Boom*cough*. My biggest disappointment with the plot is that Dr. Krankcase (the most entertaining Doom Raider to me) got the shaft for... Broccoli Guy. I get BG is quite the ensemble darkhorse, but his presence in the show really doesn't add anything, especially since Kaos pretty much immediately takes his spot as the Doom Raiders's punching bag. Maybe Krankcase will show up in the future?

And, whether because it was free of network and cable executive meddling or something else, I appreciate the adult jokes thrown in there. I definitely got a laugh out of the stuff... especially Spyro being a ship launcher. Yes, there's clear ship tease/innuendo between him and Flashwing, Jet Vac, Stealth Elf, and Crash. And it's pretty dang funny.

The animation was decent... practically indistinguishable from Imaginators cinematics. Although I think the quality of Superchargers's cinematic cutscenes is still the best in the series. Some of the character movements seem very stiff and the visual effects for the Skylanders' attacks are pretty underwhelming. But this seems like a budge production so it's not surprising.

The voice acting was decent. I was especially pleasantly surprised by Norm MacDonald. In the preview footage, I thought his lines sounded phoned in... but his deadpan tone was absolutely spot on. Richard Horvitz is noticeably less hammy here than in the games, but that seems deliberate, as Rogers & co. are portraying him less as the Zim expy TfB/VV established, and more like a spoiled brat man-child. I am however, rather disappointed that Christine Baranski and CCH Pounder couldn't do Kaossandra and the Golden Queen, respectively. Kaossandra's voice here makes her sound too young and Susan Sarandon's performance seems phoned in for the most part. But Baranski and Pounder are both busy with successful TV series so I guess they weren't available. That said, if The Darkness is going to be a recurring character, I'd much rather have them do the "smooth, badass baritone" route that Superchargers did, as opposed to the voice we heard: a generic growling voice that was clearly run through a filter.


tl;dr: It was fun and entertaining. And that's good enough for me! Looking forward to season 2 next year. ^.^b

Why is Golden Queen like one of those sexy unconfortable characters? Huh, I liked it.

All the twists with the characters where well-tough out for me.

Also, the last episode was pretty great, with a good mood. I like how they made many things a mystery to be solved next Season. That Great War thing never was part of the lore right?

I just saw a series of clips of a Skylanders episode all about Crash Bandicoot.

He talks, he talks with an Australian accent (which makes sense), he talks with (deliberately?) generic 90s catchphrases like Extreme X or Extreme Y, he talks and he talks. Did I mention he can talk?


I think my brain is broken.

Eric explained that he was put into an episode of Spyro having to look up to someone(Acti probably just shoved the Crash cameo on him), so he couldn't work with Crash being too primitive. Probably would've made both of them look stupid which is exactly what an advertisement for Imaginators shouldn't do.

arnt cloudcraker prison is suapposd to be made of Traptanium? becuse in the show there arnt even normal crystals in it.
i know the show and the games are completly diffreant canons but still they could atleast show some Traptanium fragment lying around.

Again, non-canon. They designed Cloudcracker Prison their way instead of using the model from Trap Team. Another way to separate the TV canon from the game canon.

Malefor is not a cloud of darkness.

I'm aware you said you think its The Darkness I'm just saying.

Considering how Trap Masters are there, maybe in the show's canon the prison was rebuilt out of something that wasn't Traptanium.

#98 Posted: 11:02:42 05/11/2016
Just finished watching episode 12.
GREAT EON THOSE LAST FEW MINUTES!

If Cynder is in for the second season, and The Darkness could be around as well then I guess Malefor might not be that far either.

I really loved the first season, it has the right mix of humour, action and clever writing.
I wish there were less fillers but hey, at least they were good ones.
Even the italian voice actors were great, even if different just like the english ones.

Definitely hoping for a stronger focus on the plot and more Skylanders in the future.
I've said it some time ago and I'll say it again: between Academy and Imaginators this is truly a great year for the series!

Just one more thing: the names mentioned by Stealth Elf in Dream Girls are probably just random ones created for fun, but Cobalt could fit an Air, Water or even Earth Skylander quite well and wouldn't be that different from names such as "Ember" or "Zap".

The names are Cobalt, Sheron and Edwin from the official subs, but they could easily be their real names, with the latter two being Shearon(undead?) and Edwind as Skylanders.
