There is a scene where Lance and Hunk are sneaking past the instructor's lounge at the Galaxy Garrison barracks. There is a man sitting inside the lounge eating dinner who looks like Roy Fokker from the Robotech/Macross anime series.

The trash cans that Lance and Hunk hide in are the same colors of the Lions they pilot later on.

After Lance, Hunk and Pidge fail their simulator test, their Commander dresses them down in front of other cadets outside the simulator. In the crowd of the other cadets can clearly be seen, front/right Miriya Sterling (from Robotech) and what appears to be Rick Hunter next to her. As Lance, Hunk and Pidge leave the simulator area and new cadets enter the simulator, you see two of them are Miriya and Rick again. Looking down on all of this from a window above is Roy Fokker, also of Robotech fame.

    Rollers from Abdun

    You've gotta hand it to the writers for keeping to the formula of the '80s series. We don't actually see the robot until the very end of this pilot, and that's just how the original operated from week to week. I think there's promise in that.

    And they certainly spared no expense on the CGI budget. The battle scenes with the lions are dynamic and Voltron itself looks pretty cool. I think matching pilots to lions via personalities was a nice twist, and it flows nicely with the lighthearted tone. The word of mouth on this series is impressive and I for one am intrigued.

    Plot; Five young space explorers find themselves swept up in the search to find five legendary robots before an evil galactic emperor and his armada do.

    Netflix reboot of the 80s 'toon features gorgeous animation and some really nice touches (such as the five lions each having a sort of disposition that matches up with that of their human pilot), but the tone is often too jokey, broad and on the nose (did we really need a fart joke?), robbing it of its full dramatic potential. Still, more works than not, and I'm intrigued enough to continue on to the second episode.
