THE PLOT THUS FAR
The further adventures of Po the Dragon Warrior and his friends.
WHAT WE THOUGHT
In “Legends of Awesomeness”, Po acts out of character. He always behaves like a spoiled, stupid little boy, and at times even acts mean. Some episodes do get his gentleness and compassion down very well, but not very many. He even gets jealous of the attention a new kung fu student gets in one episode and resorts to lying about Shifu’s intentions for him, ending up hurting and traumatizing the poor kid! That is not Po in the slightest, and it infuriated me to watch that scene.
The characters have a lot of personality and there is some really fun & funny dialog. Most of the voice cast does a good job of sounding like their big screen counterparts. And like the movies, it features fun, inventive action scenes featuring impressive martial arts moves. The show makes things interesting by peppering events with martial arts super moves, powerful weapons, and even magic items and spells.
The DVD comes with no special features. But, you get a clean Dolby 5.1 track that makes the action pop. It’s a shame that the transfer is lackluster standard definition. If I can watch it on Nick HD, then it should be available on Blu-Ray. This weird SD release pattern is for the birds. Oh well, your kids will make you buy it.
