Well I've watched Episode 1, and 3. I skipped the second episode, only because it seemed like it was based around the other Skylanders who I don't really care about. It was okay, I enjoyed the first episode from the first season more, can't really pin-point why exactly. And the opening seems kind of rushed, kind of prefer it the way it was in the first season.

Anyway, I only really was interested in Spyro to be honest, don't really understand what the "Spyromania" thing was all about. Episode 3, was okay, had some interesting moments. So far I don't like it as much as the first season.

Spyromania miiiight be named after a spell with that name in Battlecast, but otherwise no idea about the pun.

Double opinions, this time!

Really liked episode 8 and 9, for quite different reasons.
The former had some interesting interactions, and featured the introduction of a (the?) hydra which despite the wacky personality intrigues me a lot.

The second offered some Bad Breath and Cy's development and helped strenghtening the bonds between cadets.
Also pretty sure Fire Viper actually appeared for the first time in the previous episode, while Kaos was looking at all the animals.

That being said, I also hated theses episodes for the exact same reason: they tease waaaay too much.
It's ok to build hype and curiosity, but having Spyro constantly asking about his past without receiving a single new piece of information was simply painful, especially because it was his fault most of the time: think it was the first time I actively disliked him.
At least in Belly of the Beast we start to get something new out of King Pen and Eon, but it's still extremely vague (the dark entity trapped inside the book? Malefor? something else?) and even a bit self-contradictory: how can this darkness be "new" if they already know what it is?

Maybe I'm being too nitpicky, but I feel like I'm getting close to the end without really undestanding what is going on.
Could have had less filler episodes and more references about the main plot.
Really hoping this is building up to something worth the wait.


Really curious about next episode, was totally not expecting something like that. smilie

Are Light and Dark actually canon on this show? I don't think they've ever been mentioned and the Broccoli Guy episode mentioned there were 8. Then again I know Eric mentioned Light and Dark characters before.



Well...
Light and Dark were lost when the Core of Light was destroyed.
The Core of Light we see in Academy is the one we create after it exploded.
Light and Dark were rediscovered when Cloudcracker Prison was destroyed.
It isn’t destroyed in Academy.
Therefore, Light and Dark don’t seem to be here at all.

The only plothole is the Sun Runner, but that might just be coincidence.

Well, Cloudcracker Prison could still be destroyed in Season 3.
Or they might find a completely different way to introduce them.

Regarding the latest episode I saw:
really enjoyed it a lot, for both plot and comedy.
Starting to have an idea about who the book entity might be, and I couldn't be happier about it!
Also liked how they remembered that Greebles hatch from colored eggs, because I personally forgot it and was a bit confused until I re-read their lore.


Looking forward to the final episodes with even more excitement, now! smilie

That's true, they also wouldn't be limited by abilities and backstories, since they might simply appear briefly.

Knight Light could easily switch to Air, Spotlight to Magic (not too sure of this one), Astroblast could be Tech or Earth since he's still a living crystal, Aurora could be Magic (especially if she were still Eon's niece) and Blaster-Tron easily Tech.
Knight Mare, Blackout and Hood Sickle would work perfectly as Undead characters, Nightfall would be a pretty unique Water member and Starcast could work in Magic.

I agree with most of those but I think Blackout suits Magic much better. Dark aesthetics wouldn't have to mean moving him to Undead; I'd argue Voodood looks more Undead than Magic (I love him for it, ftr).


I agree, teleportation and magic spells can work for both Magic and Undead, but there is't really anything to prefer the latter over the former.
The limit between the two is pretty much being alive and not that spooky.
I think Blackout might be the only Light and Dark character to truly compliment his Element well.
Nightfall and to a lesser extent Starcast do their job nicely as well.

Regarding Fisticuffs, I guess he can be explained similarly to the Sun Runner: as Bifrost pointed out, it's a rather less complex model to animate and use compared to other vehicles, and they might have wanted a new bad guy to avoid repeating the Doom Raiders over and over again.

Fisticuffs was also one of the more popular non-Doom Raiders I believe, though not the most popular he's still just a wood texture with geometric shapes and some techy things.

Bomb Shell is probably here entirely so Eric could make bomb related slapstick, but why not Mab Lobs and Lob Goblin is beyond me.

Didn't remember him being so popular, guess it might be a reason as well, then.

Guess Bomb Shell was preferred because he's already comical by himself (which is probably also why he's so athletic), even though the concept of an evil Mabu could still be very interesting.

Speaking of comical characters, I'd like if Cluck and Shellshock made it into the show as well: they feel much more Academy-ish than most pre-Imaginators Skylanders and NPCs and could work nicely as occasional villains.

Cluck, Shellshock and most importantly, Moneybone could be great in SA. The show needs a lot more VV representation, imo. It's lacking more than it should be.

Drek95 Emerald Sparx Gems: 4761
#2574 Posted: 16:53:27 16/10/2017
Forgot about the Count, he could be very enjoyable as well.
Very true, Kaossandra is probably the most important V.V.'s reference, and even that is debatable since only her appereance is their work, while the character itself was already planned by TfB.

Greebles, vehicles, minor villains and Skylanders aren't even comparable to how much TfB there actually is.
Not having a single SWAP Force or SuperChargers' character in the main team is probably the biggest offender, and design isn't an excuse: Pop Thorn could fit perfectly, and Dive-Clops would even fill the Water spot.

Not to mention their games also provide interesting lore starting points, such as the Elementals, Mount Cloudbreak, the Spell Punks' relevance to the whole history of the Skylands (and Spellslamzer as well) and other smaller details.

I absolutely want to clarify I don't think this was done on purpose, Eric and his team probably don't even know the difference between V.V. and TfB's games nor what they introduced, but they are always willing to hear fans' suggestions, so hopefully it's constructive criticism.

I think Cluck's niche is already too filed by the Doom Raiders, especially with GQ's new characterization. Moneybone, Mesmeralda and Shellshock could definately work, especially since the latter fits right in with the fact villains stroll around and work freely on campus grounds.

AAAAAAAAAAAH!
OH MY GOD, EPISODE 11!

FINALLY!
Finally the plot is advancing, and what an andvancement!

So Strykore is the dark entity, and probably Kaos' father as well, and we know he might join forces with Malefor in Season 3: that's fantastic!
Guess both had something to do with the Great War, at this point.

The episode itself was enjoyable, but this is what I was waiting for the entire season.
The Doom Raiders taking over Kaossandra's castle, her being turned into gold before returning Kaos' powers to him, Stealth Elf beginning to doubt Eon's words as much as Spyro after being the one who tried to persuade him he wasn't hiding anything...
YESSSS!
MORE!


Probably my favorite episode so far!

I hope not.

The main focus of episode 11 was Dreamcatcher loosing her memory and becoming a cadet once again, but as I said that part was basically overshadowed by the other ongoing plot.
The smaller portion of the episode was actually the one which I liked the most.

The rest are educated guesses, but certainly wouldn't be shocking revelations.


Don't tell me episode 12 doesn't get things any further than that, I need more development.

Phew!

I understand, though, I'll have to rewatch the first season because I didn't remember a lot of more or less important details.

EDIT: just saw the penultimate episode.
Wow.
Eric's not messing around for sure, this time.

The entire episode was entertaining, intriguing and full of lore.
Seriously, basically every scene contained a small or big information, like how the Skylands' technology works thanks to both Magic and Tech which was honestly unexpected.
And now I totally wish one of Jet-Vac's reposes had a magic eggs Wow Pow: I mean, how many upgrades can his blaster have...?

And what can I say about the development?
Sprocket and Jet-Vac's relationship felt quite natural for the amount of time they had at their desposal, and I cannot believe Spyro is the one leaving the group.
I mean, that's absolutely understandable, but I would have bet on Jet-Vac, exactly because of him feeling old and obsolete; that was a plot twist I didn't see coming.

Do I even have to say anything about Eon's revelation and Kaos discovery?
Only thing I can think about is that I literally cannot wait for the finale, tomorrow!
And that I secretly hope the dragons were sent to... well, the Dragon Realms; but that's probably just me wanting Classic Spyro references.


Must have missed the double Wilhelm Scream, though, unless it got removed when they dubbed.
My body is ready for the conclusion!

as in season 1, dark power can make interdimensional hole at enough power like when doom raiders escape from cloud cracker prison and crash comes to academy when dark power was raised in skylands are falling.

so, i assume that when strykore will make enough dark power in season 3, maybe crash and its chars like coco and dr neo cortex will sucked to skylands. but it's just my theory.

Any implication of these two having an actual intimate relationship is NO THANK YOU from me, even if they're implied to be over 18 years old like the main trio. Maybe there's one benefit that the r34 community has long abandoned Skylanders.

Also, it'd get lots of angry parents.
