Hey everyone! This is Bevin, one of the Co-founders of this awesome group and I'm here to tell you my critiques (so far) on the new Inspector Gadget series!
The show is currently up on Netflix if you wish to see it and so far I am on about episode ~4ish, I think.
Not as good nor catchy as the original though it does has that twinge of "Hall of the Mountain King" as the original theme gets mistaken for.
Gadget looks nice and I'm glad the animators kept his brown gloves. XD
I'm more concerned, however, that the animators has given Gadget violent and lethal capabilities such as missiles and laser targeting since the original Gadget was designed NOT to have those features.
Currently, he is voiced by Ivan Sherry, known for acting in cop and detective shows and shows great promise as our favorite bionic hero.
Brain looks more sullen than the original but I guess that's showing his age and with the stress he has to go through.
His collar has gotten a more digital, modern upgrade and still keeps his classic design. And he STILL gets mistaken for a MAD Agent! XD
Brain is voiced by Scott McCord and from series such as Total Drama Island.
Penny has grown into a teenager and is accepted has a member of the Gadget team in HQ.
FINALLY! She doesn't have the save the world in secret!
So far Penny has ditched her computer book for a more Tron-esque set of gear and outfits.
Penny is voiced by none other than the great Tara Strong!
Chief Quimby seems to have taken his mid-life crisis by applying some high-lights into his hair (compared to the original series). XD
It's still awesome that he still dispenses the mission assignments in a more digital yet explosive form!
His office has at least two Canadian flags as seen in the first episode to denote that the HQ takes place in Canada.
Chief Quimby is voiced by Derek McGrath.
Also, R.I.P. original Gadgetmobile.
Helloooooooo Canadian Smart car!
If I were rich, I'd buy a Smart car with Gadgetmobile colors!
Doctor Claw? YES PLEASE!
I felt like a giddy kid again when he got his claw back and it jutted out SPIKES AND CLAWS. I swear, the evil in me was quite pleased!
His new outfit? Just take the origianl 80s design and Tron-nify for a modern audience!
I'm happy that we get to see more frontal shots so Dr. Claw can be more involved in each episode and still be a face of mystery.
Dr. Claw is currently voiced by Martin Roach.
MADCat is still a fluffy furball that we all know and love. ^w^
And what about this Talon guy?
Talon? Yeah, about him. It seems a bit cliche to introduce a male counter-part and romantic interest to Penny but it still works.
The fact that he is Dr. Claw's nephew is even more cheesy too. But hey, we get to see a more steady character as unique MAD agents gets arrested.
Talon is voiced by Lyon Smith, known for voicing Sapphire in the Sailor Moon series.
These are my opinions of the series and the show so far. This is my story and I'm sticking to it!
