Review this tv show
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
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
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
