Aug 19, 2013I am not a person who uses the term "genius" lightly, but in creating Sym-Bionic Titan, Genndy Tartakovsky has achieved that level.
As someone who isn't a fan of anime, mechas, or high-school dramas, I found the show groundbreaking, and superbly executed in every way. The attention to details, both subtle, and exaggerated, is seen everywhere, and the mix between humorous and serious moments is done at a balanced pacing, never stretching itself too much in either direction. The gradual character and plot building is masterfully done, with a surprisingly mature tone.
Without giving away too much, the way he plays the various factions into conflict in the later episodes is especially impressive, and went beyond my expectations.
A rare gem.… Expand
Jul 28, 2011Really loved the show, Genndy has come up with something which is maturer than Dexter's and timely, because we were the people who started Dexter's as children and now gettin' Sym-Bionic Titan as not-children. The whole season had everything to wish for, animÃ© like story telling, the progression was amazing, the suspense, the philosophy and anthropology (see the Descartes episode- I'm Octus) were there- I got hooked up! Despite the quiet-not-real destruction scenes, the show with its great score and settings is a must see for every cartoon-lover out there!… Expand
Sep 18, 2010sym-bonic titan premiered last night and it was pretty good.it felt like it was more epic than possibly imaginable, it started strong and finished strong. However I didn't really care for the shows depiction of high schoolers i.e jocks being giant gorillas who could destroy a table in one blow, but it does make up for it by showing how over exaggerated teenage dramas are. At any rate this show is pretty cool and deserves a watch.… Expand
Sep 26, 2010Sym-Bionic Titan is really awful. Don't waste your time watching this trash. I know it is only a cartoon but the way the military (especially the US Army ) is depicted is still the same in every cartoon. For example, a general would never go out fighting with troops in the front lines (Unless a general has super human powers like the Jedi in Clone Wars, who are generals). Teams of troops with tanks take a long time to deploy. They can't show up like they've been teleported. There are types of military units that can't do this but not what looks like M1 Abrams tanks. When the Army magically appears in the city to fight the fire monster, they just shoot without regards to the civillians' safety. The military is a lot more surgical. And another thing, the General's tank has lots of room inside to sit himself and two others comfortably. It is not clear if the General is a one star or 4 star General. His helmet has one star but the rest of his uniform has too many stars! At least get the rank correct! There is no way. Come on! Why do cartoons keep doing this? Another problem I have is the amount of casual destruction. I estimate a million deaths and wounded from the fire monster attack in the city alone. This is worse than a terror attack. The alien monster leveled at least 20 city blocks around him in one blast alone. We can accept this destruction watching the city of Townsville get destroyed every show in the "Power Puff Girls". There were people living and working in those blocks. The nearby neighborhood that the 3 protagonists live in would cease to exist as it would become a place for treating the injured and the displaced. The entire world would be affected. If the human emotions of Lance and Ilana (and maybe the robot Octus) are going to be realistic, the world around them should also have some elements of realism. I've had it with this show. I expected to see a great show but after watching two episodes, I've had enough. I think I watch some Avatar: The Last Airbender shows to remind myself that there are still great cartoons out there.… Expand
