Lots of cursing and adult humor.
Kellie Ambrosia
If you're a fan of giant robot movies, TV shows where puppets save the world, or you've gone, gone with the Power Rangers, you'll love Titan Maximum.

This shows it one of the funniest I watched in a long time.

One hundred years in the future, our solar system is protected by Titan Force Five, a squadron of crack pilots whose spaceships combine to form the giant robot Titan Maximum. After years of peace, the inactive team must hastily reassemble to square off against the biggest threat humanity has ever faced - but before they save the day, this new version of Titan Force Five must overcome their astounding incompetence.

Welcome to the world of Titan Maximum, 50% Power Rangers, 23% Voltron, and 64% Thunderbirds Are Go! This stop-motion series combines the worst of all those shows with the best of Robot Chicken and rolls it up into a 9-episode giant robot parody, the likes of which you've never seen before.

And there's a monkey, because, dang it, a monkey makes every TV show better. Just ask Greg Evigan.

The series was created by Tom Root and Matthew Senreich and includes the creative input and voices of Seth Green, Breckin Meyer, Rachael Leigh Cook and Dan Milano. There are also scifi guest voices like Billy Dee Williams as Admiral Bitchface, Adrianne Palicki as a little girl who is a demonic super villian and Tahmoh Penikett as a sex-addicted, rich boy who plays pilot for fun.

Unlike Robot Chicken, Titan Maximum has an actual, and rather complex, backstory behind it and each episode has an actual plot. Not always much of a plot, but a plot. Like Robot Chicken, the humor is over-the-top, often gross and, big warning here, full of foul language. This isn't a DVD for kids.

The most amazing thing about this series is the production itself. They use a combination of stop-motion animation and computer graphics and they meld them together in a nearly seamless fashion.

Titan Maximum is from the same creative team that does Robot Chicken. It's DEFINITELY not for kids, and is filled with references and jokes to various geek staples (sic-fi, anime, giant robots, action, etc.). It's appeal isn't for everyone, but I personally loved it. I have all 9 episodes from iTunes and for me the show definitely had a high rewatch value. I've read that the DVD set will (like iTunes) be the "censored" version (beeps for profanity). Best described as "Voltron for adults", with the Robot Chicken humor and stop-motion animation style.

Firstly, i would like to point out that Titan Maximum, is not a show for everyone. If you are turned off by crude humor than this is not for you. But for the small audience that this show appeals to, it is top notch. I have grown up with adult swim for years now, and while i find some shows to be losing there appeal (becoming Stale), and new shows that are not as high in comedy quality that i expect, it was a breath of fresh air to see this show. Unlike shows like Robot chicken, i enjoy this show because it contains story to back up the jokes, making it much more interesting than say the 2:00 minute skits of Robot Chicken. Titan Maximum almost has an anime feel to it in my opinion, as the characters while maybe on their own wouldnt make it, the combination of their personalities make the show undoubtedly hilarious. I wont give anything else away, youll just have to find out for yourself if its your kind of humor.

Onto the actual release, it contains one dvd in standard packaging, not much to say about that. The "comic book" that comes with the purchase, although amusing, is only about 3 pages long, so that was a bit dissapointing (although it doesnt hurt including it with the dvd). The dvd comes with a decent amount of features including commentary, behind the scenes, and a whole slew of other extras that will keep you interested to say the least. Oh, and one more thing is the quality on the dvd compared to tv is remarkable.

Overall, i feel that this show was a very fresh breath of air from adult swim if you enjoy this kind of comedy, i cant wait for season 2!

Sooooooo, how are you with compulsively vulgar stop-motion animated Voltron parodies? Yeah? Good. The sick S.O.B's who gave Robot Chicken to the world decided to do something with an actual plot and characters and it is gloriously base and obscene. I love it. Titan Maximum takes all of your wonderful giant robot-related childhood memories and touches them in all the naughty places. With a villain who slings middle fingers like Santa gives candy canes on Christmas and a "heroic" team consisting of the world's biggest d-bag, his nerdy little brother, an all-American girl next door type with a serious bad streak, a pop-music skank, and a monkey with a strangely unnerving (and neverending) stare how could you not love this show? Oh. Right. You're one of those people with "standards". Well, la-dee-da, Mr. Fancypants. I like my humor base and profane and good lord does this show deliver on that front.

Aside from the pilot, the episodes are typical Adult Swim 11 (or so) minute morsels of wonderfulness. But what sets Titan Maximum apart is that it has an actual story arc as opposed to the usual standalone eps of other shows of this type and the sketch comedy format of Robot Chicken. That means character development, right? Maybe? Well, maybe if a character can be developed as it stares cooly at the screen or screams genitalia-based threats at the other characters. No genre cliche goes unmocked and the constant barrage of insult humor is brutal. Running gags are to be expected as well. And as far as teamwork between cast members.......well, here's an excerpt of dialogue from a Titan Force 5 strategy session:

"Hold on, Palmer! We don't know anything about this creature!"
"We know it has a crotch and we have a fist. Meeting adjourned."

GOLD!
