Preliminary
I had never heard of this incredibly old IP before, but if the originals were this good, I might get curious.

What makes this 21st century remake so compelling is that while it's true that it's technically a "kids show," the themes are very mature and fleshed out to relate to the modern age. Almost every episode is a moral lesson, or a cautionary tale, of the pitfalls of today's society. It is a serious examination of various cultural phenomenon brought on by technological advances and modern social attitudes. It even takes a quick look at western vs eastern viewpoints, through an eastern lens, that is.

My only real issue is that because it's a rigidly episodic show, some of the development feels a little rushed.
