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 reassemble to square off against the biggest threat humanity has ever faced-this new version of Titan Force Five must overcome their astounding incompetence.
I have liked Titan Maximum ever since seeing the two minute preview. But then that's the type of humor I can really get into. Dirty, sometimes smutty, stupid humor. Titan Maximum has definitely become one of my favorite shows on Adult Swim, probably second only to Venture Bros.
The parodies are ripe for the picking, including a Top Gun parody with two senior citizens. The characters offer a nice variety, from self absorbed Commander Palmer to Titan's sweetheart (but has a thing for villains in eye patches) Jodi Yanerella, to the only competent character on the show (who I personally feel sorry for, stuck working with nitwits before his move to conquer the solar system) Gibson "Gibbs" Giberstein. I'm waiting anxiously for a second season, can't wait to see what would be done with them all!
The only reason I didn't give it a full blown five is the DVD features. It seems we were given a lot, but I just felt them lacking. And the deleted scenes! Most were great! I was saddened by the fact that some weren't included. But despite that fact I watch it so often I'm terrified I'll have to get a new copy. Nothing beats actually being able to watch the episodes whenever I want instead of waiting for the Adult Swim lineup to shuffle. Yet again.
Not one of the greatest shows, but respect to Seth Green and crew! If you're a fan of Robot Chicken... You may or may not like this. If you're a fan of old 80's style cartoons you may or may not like this. If you're a fan of Team America, you'll likely like this!
This show is really funny (to me), makes fun of EVERYTHING, but a bit too dirty for the kids Parents. I grew up watching Giant robots and Monsters Destroying City's and Planets (still do), and whether it was animated or live action, didn't matter, loved it (still do). The characters on this show are funny, hateful, bitter frenemies, that do nothing but rip on each other, and screw each other over. Great satire, wish they continued the series.
Too bad they stop making this show I would have followed it to the next season. It is a stop animation in the order of Robot Chicken only it has a running story line with a diabolical plot of domination.
Best known for "Robot Chicken," the producers and writers of this series bring the best of their lowbrow humor to this send-up of the "Super Robot" anime style so popular in the 80s and 90s. End-to-end funny -- a great first season -- pity more didn't follow.
