Created by Tom Root and Matthew Seinrich of Robot Chicken fame, the stop-motion animated series Titan Maximum follows in its predecessor's footsteps by skewering a fanboy-favorite genre--specifically, Japan's Super Sentai, which pits giant robots against outlandish monsters--with the same level of hilarious pop culture obsession and below-the-belt humor that made their first series an Emmy-winning hit. Titan Maximum follows all the touchstones of the Sentai meme--the youthful crew of the title mecha is torn asunder (by budget cuts), only to reassemble when a former member (voiced by executive producer Seth Green) attempts to overtake the solar system--but with one significant difference: the crew are, at best, complete idiots, and at worst, the most awful people imaginable. Their inability to get past their own egos and ineptitude form the backbone of the first season's nine episodes, which, unlike Chicken's machine-gun bursts of sketches, actually follow a story arc; it's one of several elements that set it apart from that series, as well as improved animation and scripting. That's not to say that the humor in Titan Maximum is any more sophisticated--crotch trauma, obscene gestures, and berserk party girl/crew member Sasha Caylo's every action should assure viewers that the show is definitely for grown-ups--but the attempt to blend a consistent story line with a barrage of jokes is a definite step forward. The robot action also does a fine job of balancing parody with appreciation for the real thing, with several sequences offering a seamless mix of CG and stop-motion animation, and the vocal talent, which includes Robot Chicken vets Breckin Meyer, Rachael Leigh Cook, Eden Espinoza, Billy Dee Williams, and Dan Milano (Greg the Bunny), handle their outrageous characters with the appropriate degree of near hysteria.

Extras on the single-disc set are plentiful and highlighted by over a dozen commentary tracks for the nine episodes; though you might have to do some digging to find them (they're listed in the episode selection menu), you'll hear Green, Root, and producer-director Chris McKay, as well as several of the cast members, offering some amusing observations on every episode, with a second audio track featuring members of the production crew on five episodes. There's also an impressive exploration of a 40-second sequence as it moves from animatic to final version, while interviews with the cast and crew--some serious, some less so--give a history of the series and its production. The supplements are rounded out by a peek at a scene read-through with the cast, a frantic "Episode Re-Dub" featuring the cast and crew winging their way through "Went to Party, Got Crabs," and even a mini comic that brings viewers up to speed with the show's back story. Oh, and for the curious, the whole thing's uncut, which means that the frequent strong language is in full cry here. --Paul Gaita

4.0 out of 5 stars Titan Maximum: It's all about the monkey August 15, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Stoopid Monkey Goodness June 20, 2010
By Arkiver
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars very entertaining for a select audience August 15, 2010
Format:DVD
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!
