Beck continues his training under the guidance of Tron, becoming more influential throughout Argon City, but he will soon discover a shocking secret that will annihilate all of his assumptions about his role as Tron's mentee. Meanwhile, Beck works to balance his life with his friends Mara and Zed at Able's Garage with his duties as the Renegade while he begins to assemble a team for the Uprising.
What on Earth this is doing on the Disney channel and marketed as a kid's show I will never know!
What you really have here is a mind-numbingly awesome story-line with a deep plot filled with grand philosophical and ethical questions portrayed in a visually stunning sci-fi setting. If that weren't enough for you, have I mentioned the outstanding cast? Elijah Wood, Bruce Boxleitner, & Lance Henricksen to name the top 3 names. But just watch, and you'll recognize other extraordinary talents throughout the show. Beck's boss at the garage, Able? He's voiced by Reginald VelJohnson, best known for his character in Die Hard and Family Matters.
The plot is dramatic and compelling and keeps you wanting more. They somehow manage to fit all these big ideas into a small time slot without losing any of the importance those ideas carry. And to help matters along, each episode carries over into the next providing you with a continuous story that builds upon each previous episode (something that while expected, many shows do not provide).
Tron: Uprising is better science fiction than both Tron movies combined. It is fracking fabulous, and I've already watched it three times.
Like most quality sci-fi shows these days, this one is destined for early cancellation. Enjoy it while you can :\
I'm loving the series, but part of me is sad that it may go away without viewership. I'm glad that Amazon is allowing the purchase of episodes so that we can support the series without having to install iTunes on my PC
