When the 2011 Thundercats series was announced I was really excited they were bringing back my favourite childhood cartoon. However as the series started and I seen the new direction and take on the series I was not pleased. Saying I was not pleased would probably be a bit of an understatement. I disliked the series so much that there was a few episodes I didn't even bother watching. I also gave away the entire 2011 toy collection I bought to my younger cousins. About a year ago on one of the threads in reply to a comment hammy0924 made I said that if it wasn't supposed to be a Thundercats show it would be good. In the sense that some of the characters and stories were good but I just didn't think the new characteristic worked for the intended characters when compared to the original series. Several weeks ago I came across a certain site for downloading various anime movies and films, and whilst browsing the list of shows available I noticed Thundercats was there. Even though I had such a strong dislike for the show I remembered I missed a few episodes and I never saw how the series ended. Since they were free it and not costing me anything I put them on my downloading list. I made a decision I was going to watch the entire series and give it a fair chance this time. No comparisons to the original series etc, just judge each episode on its own merit and how much I enjoyed it. I made some notes on each episode (character, plot, animation, refrences etc) which determined their score out of 10. Omens, Part 1: 6/10 Omens, Part 2: 6/10 Ramalak Rising: 3/10 Song of the Petalars: 9/10 Old Friends: 7/10 Journey to the Tower of Omens: 5/10 Legacy: 8/10 The Duellist and the Drifter: 8/10 Berbils: 7/10 Sight Beyond Sight: 4/10 The Forest of Magi Oar: 7/10 Into the Astral Planes: 8/10 Between Brothers: 8/10 New Alliances: 5/10 Trials of Lion-O, Part 1: 8/10 Trials of Lion-O, Part 2: 8/10 Native Son: 9/10 Survival of the Fittest: 8/10 The Pit: 9/10 Curse of Ratilla: 7/10 Birth of the Blades: 7/10 The Forever Bag: 7/10 Recipe for Disaster: 5/10 The Soul Sever: 2/10 What Lies Above, Part 1: 8/10 What Lies Above, Part 2: 9/10 Altogether I am giving the series a 7/10. I am not saying anyone has to agree with my opinion, maybe some of you would rank the series and episodes differently but this is what I think of it. In conclusion all I can say is that personally I like the 2011 series a lot more now than I originally did. If I had done this a while ago or just from memory without re-watching the series I assure you the score would be drastically different. Yes it has its faults, but when you watch it and you do not think of the original series and watch it purely as just another cartoon and give it a chance it is very enjoyable. When I finished watching the series I honestly found myself wanting to watch more of it, and when a cartoon does that it definitely did something right.
