Iv just watched "pop rock" and i got to say not a bad episode.
I loved the reference to popfizz superchargers counterpart.

i finaly watched "beard science" and this was a good episode but allso one of the wierdest episdoes that i saw in cartoon tv shows like... ever.
eon's beard sure get allot more attention then he ever got in the games, hell no one even mentioned his beard once in any of the games.
that wasent very nice from the golden queen to invite kaos just so he could see her with wolfgang.
and how come that not even hugo recognized eon without his beard? he still had his voice and his most of his look. but i sure was nice to her allot more from hax, wind up and roller brawl.

Just got through "The Skylands are Falling!" I've been using this show as a reward so it's been slow going. Gotta say, after the first few episodes it started to fall flat, but the last two I've seen were pretty good!

Probably don't need this tag here but just in case.

Oh man, I really enjoyed this episode. I don't know if it was on purpose, but there were like three spots where I got a nostalgia rush:

- Spyro saying he'll be done before lunchtime when speeding off. It's a fairly common phrase, and it's not an exact quote, but Ripto's Rage!
- Spyro rushing towards the dark energy dodging rocks. Reminded me of the climax of ANB!
- Almost 100% unintentional, but Spyro bouncing off the walls inside the dark energy. When I was 4, whenever Spyro would bounce off the force-fields in levels like Stone Hill in the first game, I would call them Z-daps, or Z-bops or something to that effect. It even made a similar sound! I almost squealed going "Spyro's bouncing off the Z-bops!"

And then there's Crash showing up at the end, complete with his theme song. He's a bit too talkative, but eh; it's not like this is being too consistent with the games anyway.


Actually looking forwards to my next test so I can watch the next one!

I have been watching up to episode 6 and...

In the Episode The Hole Truth, if you combine all the powers... you can make a Wormhole. Don´t you think it would be dangerous? Especially what if there´s a clash between Skylanders with different powers against villains with powers? Either it gives the villains the advantage or the Skylanders to push them away.

And... finished with the rest of the series!

Crash's episode had its moments, but the whole "hey Crash you're so cool!" thing got old fast. Still, liked the references to the Crash games (or at least the ones I could pick out, since I've only played the first) like jumping on the TNT and using the Spin attack in general. I did also enjoy Spyro being a complete fanboy, although after a while it got a bit old.

The final episode though, oh boy. It was really good! And not because I'm picking out references from nothing this time! I liked the challenges, I liked the Core of Light, I liked the Doom Raiders, and I especially liked the plot buildup! Kaosandra not necessarily being evil was definitely a twist! Looking forwards to the next season for sure!

Just finished watching the last episode. Some personal opinions:
Good
Yay Flashwing made some cameos! But where was she during Stealth Elf's speech in 'Dream Girls' and when the Doom Raiders attacked the Academy in the last episode?
I'm glad they used the same voice actors for Kaos and Pop Fizz as in the games. The other voice actors were good apart from some Doom Raiders (see Bad).
Favourite episode was 'Missing Links'.
Whilst I still prefer classic Spyro design, Spyro in the show looks and sounds better than he did in earlier Skylanders games.
The animation was pretty good.

Bad
Jeez, Spyro had an annoying, overinflated ego in the first episode. I'm glad it got toned down after that.
I found the Doom Raiders annoying at times. I hate Wolfgang and Chompy Mage's new voices and Broccoli Guy's personality from the games felt it had been sucked from him. I also didn't like Snap Shot's new voice.
Least favourite episode was probably 'The Hole Truth'.

Suggestions
I would like more action and battle scenes in the show. I know it's a kids show but maybe make the next series PG.
Add a couple of new Skylanders to the main five, Flashwing perhaps? *avoids gunshots*
Have Crash come back in another episode. Even though I'm used to Crash not speaking, his voice was pretty good.

Overall, good first series but could do with some improvements. I will check out series 2 next year. Score 3/5

If I think of anything else I'll add it here.

Snap Shot still has his original voice actor, Fred Tatasciore, from the games, but he speaks with a different accent.

I'll copy my thoughts I posted on Crash10's guestbook here for now.

Uhh well it does have some moments of convinience and miss jokes, but most of the jokes are good (at least in timing/delivery), I'm surprised by the continuity and all the characters are likeable. I don't really feel like there's a character that's there just because or just for a gag aside from Broccoli Guy, Bad Breath and maybe King Pen (it bothers me so much he only appears once), but they're entertaining anyways. Also Beard Science best episode.
I'd say my top 3 episodes in descending order are Beard Science, Assault on Skylanders Academy and Anger Mismanagement. I didn't like episode 10 (don't remember the name, but it's the Evilscope one, felt fillery to me and I thought the ball of evil thing was dumb and mainly just happened for the aesop) and the Crash one was sorta meh (it had a couple of chuckles, but nothing really funny, Crash's voice really bothered me, although the Dark Relic thing kept it from being a bad episode). I also remember feeling one of the early episodes was rushed, but don't remember which. The one with Jet-Vac staying at Spyro's I think? I'm generally more lax about the first few episodes when I'm watching something anyway so yeah.

When I get the time or rewatch the series (actually on Netflix this time lol, hope I can get my mom to join), I'll give my full personal rankings of the episodes.

My Way or Sky Way isn't anything special of an episode, but dunno, I like it. "Do planned decisions" is all too common of a show moral so it's quite entertaining to see the opposite with very good arguments towards being impulsive.

I wonder if Spyro's contact with the sphere of evil will result in the "birth" of Dark Spyro, in the second season.
They could make him have a split personality, create a doppelgänger or even just have random evil moments.

Doubt they will completely ignore what happened in that episode nor simply use it as an excuse to make Crash enter the Skylands.

I don't think they'll ignore it in the end either but it was totally irrelevant to season 1
Beard Science also was irrelevant to the plot despite being my favorite episode, but Evilscope ep feels like it's trying harder to set up the moral and feels like it's trying to be one of the most serious and important episodes, when it really isn't important and feels like it's there purely for the moral
It also seems kinda OOC and stupid that Evilscope ep focuses on Spyro overworking and then lightening up about things by the end, when the first two episodes showed how incredibly careless he was and how lazy he could get and it really doesn't feel like he should be the kinda character to stay up doing work for nights on end (not that he can't have a facet of his personality that's enthusiastic enough to stay up for stuff he really wants to, and not that he hasn't developed since the first episodes, but that facet of his was never shown before and I doubt it'll happen again which would make it feel more like he just acted that way and the episode just happened for the moral, plus I don't feel like he would develop that inbetween those first couple episodes and Evilscope ep)
You could argue the sphere of evil actually being real is meant to be a joke because of how bizarre that idea is but the episode is too serious for that to work

If you can't tell, Evilscope ep is by far my least favorite episode. It's not something where I'd be upset if I had to rewatch it because there's nothing really groan-worthy or anything (I don't really think there is in the whole show), I just think it's badly constructed. The more I think about it the more I notice problems I have with it, and I think really good shows and movies should be the kind of thing where you can re-watch them and not have that problem and get something new from them with each rewatch.
The Crash episode feels like the next most pointless episode to me since the main plot really can't go anywhere unless they bring Crash back later, but the Dark Relic subplot was actually pretty good and managed to be its saving grace. And it was a lot more entertaining and had a much less flimsy setup, even though it was obvious the main plot was made purely to have a Crash episode.

I can't help but wonder if they originally planned a different main plot for episode 11 involving the Evilscope but Activision got them to write a Crash episode instead. It still holds up fine, but it is really weird how pointless the main plot of episode 11 is when they introduced the Evilscope in episode 10 and 11's subplot is so important.

Been a few weeks since he said it,but yeah, Eric implied he was told to put Crash in the show but already had the episode structures, so he had to change both Crash and the plot.
Not much of an excuse towards The Skylands are Falling though, that would just apply to Crash Landing. The former is rushed all around when they could've gone for a less random problem AND solution - heck, the villains are randomly doing their daily activities when they were arrested just a few hours back, and only Kaos ever seems to care about the end of the world. Maybe if we had a better glimpse at the temporarily converted villains(maybe jokes about Imaginators), or had them explain instead that the world's balance needs evil.
