Well, this rounds off the GeneralsJoes “Sigma 6 Celebration”. I hope folks who are fans of the toyline enjoyed it, and I hope those who aren’t weren’s too put off by it, and maybe even found some redeeming characteristics buried within.
Obviously if you’re at this point, you’ve probably been reading all along, and have already perused the Season 1 Recap (Parts 1 and 2) as well as the first part of the Season 2 recap. So far I’ve covered the animated series as a whole all the way up through Episode 9 of Season 2. I’m actually somewhat surprised at myself for being able to stomach this out, because quite honestly I’m not a fan of the animated series. While there were snippets of cool action, and I always love seeing my toys come to life on the screen, as a whole the writing was painful, the dialog abysmal, and some of the characterizations were straight out of the worst stereotypes I can imagine. Yet some part of me enjoys the Sigma 6 universe so much, that it seemed a shame not to at least touch on the animated series to at least a degree. And at this point, I’ve gotten this far, might as well wrap it up.
If you’ve been following along, you’ve seen me cover Season One of the Sigma 6 cartoon in two parts here and here. I’ll be doing the same thing this time around with Season Two, covering the first 6 episodes in this article, then covering the next 6 episodes in Part Two. Episode 13 of Season 2 was merely a “recap show” wrapped into a pseudo-Awards show, so I didn’t feel that was even worth including.
It should be noted that in the US, Season Two only aired through Episode 8, the rest of them were found on the Canadian station YTV, or Hasbro’s “MonkeybarTV” website.
