Many shows go by a certain formula that they use all the time. House would finally diagnose the patient at the end of the show after going through a ton of wrong diagnoses. The Voltron pilots would always try to destroy the robeast as seperate lions and always fail. Then after becoming Voltron, they would try all sorts of things before FINALLY using the big sword.
True it was formulaic but the whole point of watching the show was to see what actually happened that was different, not the outcome which was always the same. You knew the good guy was going to win in the end, you just didn’t know how.
Nowadays, you don’t really know if the good guy or the bad guy is going to win, or worse, if your favorite character is gonna kick the bucket.
Still, I enjoyed this show. Some TV stations still play it from time to time.
