These episodes so far are all about the origin of Lion-O and how he became a leader. I can totally dig this. I can understand hoe episode 3 can grate on some (It was very blatantly Moby Dick), but Episode 4 touched me (Great metaphor on how life can by at a blink of an eye).
Having said that: When the Thundertank exploded onto the scene, I was like **** YEAH!!
