  • My favorite cartoon TV show!

    9.5
    The first time I saw Code Lyoko was when I was 9 years old. We have a local TV channel for kids where I live and Bratz got replaced by Code Lyoko. At first, I was absolutely disgusted that something as "awesome" as Bratz could be replaced by something as "awful" and "for boys" as Code Lyoko. But, my friend made me watch an episode (the one where Ulrich and Yumi are in the steam room sorta thing) and I absolutely fell in love with the show. I watched it every day and would cry on the days that I missed it. They stopped airing it when I was 11. Now, 3 years later, I searched for the episodes on YouTube - and found all of them! I can't wait to get home from school to watch this amazing cartoon! I remember being so in love with Ulrich (I still am a bit) and Yumi and Ulrich used to be my OTP (still are a bit). Now, let's see why I like this show:



    Plot - The overall is so damn original and unique. It's fun to watch and can please everybody. The plots of individual episodes are also very intriguing. I guess the only reason I didn't give this show a 10 is because you can't watch 3+ episodes at the same time, because every episode is the same with a different plot. But this isn't a big deal to me. I still adore it and watch 3+ episodes despite that.



    Acting - Well, there's voice acting, which is pretty good. I just wish that Ulrich and Jeremie weren't voice by girls... on top of that, the same person that voiced Aelita voiced Jeremie, which I didn't like much. But, the voice actors are pretty good, apart from Yumi's at times, but I can pass over all of that and don't consider it a big problem.



    Characters - All of the characters are so different and so unique and I love all of them, even Sissi and her minions! The only character I can't really stand sometimes is Aelita - she was so annoying at times, just like her voice, walked inside the tower so slowly and was so whiny and helpless. But, there were still a lot of times that I absolutely enjoyed her. I don't consider this a problem either. The show wouldn't be the same without Aelita, no matter how annoying she can get.



    Romance - Ulrich and Yumi I love the two of them! I also love how Odd flies solo and is kind of a player and the gentle relationship between Jeremie and Aelita. I know that Ulrich and Yumi didn't officially end up together, but I like to think that they did, and they probably did, so.



    Drama - This show is perfect when it comes to drama. It isn't as dramatic as Mexican soap operas, but still sticks me to my screen, which is amazing.



    Humor - Considering the whole plot of this show, you'd be surprised to see humor, but it's there. It's funny, it's subtle and there isn't too much of it - most importantly, it's realistic.



    Overall - Best cartoon TV show ever! Sure, there were a couple of minor plot, voice acting and character issues, but I'm willing to get past all of them! I'm rewatching the whole series right now (including Garage Kids), I play online games all the time and I would also like to read the books/comics based on it. The new show, Code Lyoko: Evolution started up recently and I do plan on watching it. I'm not the biggest fan of live actors, especially because I don't like the ones playing Ulrich and Jeremie, but it's still Code Lyoko and I love it!moreless
  • I miss this show

  • Creative, clever, and all around excelent.

    A group of school children stumble upon a supercomputer one day and discover a beautiful girl living inside. However there is also an evil entity within the supercomputer that influences things in the real world to take it over. So the children must fight off this evil entity while attempting to virtualize the girl while dealing with day to day life. You see its this level of creativity that a lot of new cartoons are missing. A lot of new cartoons have shallow plots with no real creativity or effort put in. But in this show you can tell that the writers are using their brains. A lot of new cartoons also have bland, one dimensional characters. But this show has well developed characters. You have your tech savvy nerdy kid (Jeremy), Your "keep to himself" kind of guy (Ulrich), You have your voice of reason (Yumi), Your laid back fun guy (odd) your sweet, innocent girl (Aeileta) Your stuck up diva girl (Sissy) and your watchdog "big brother" type character (Jim). These are all characters I can understand and appreciate because they all have well defined personalities and aren't just plot objects. This show, like teen titans does a good job at balancing action and comedy. You get just the right amount of both. While a lot of new cartoons rely on low brow jokes such as farting, pooping, or sex, this show has a more intelligent and creative type of humor. Overall I think its an excellent show. It amasses me with its shear level of creativity and I can really tell that this is a show that the writers put a lot of effort into instead of just throwing together garbage for small, ignorant children and making a quick buck.moreless
  • A decent show, yet it has many flaws

    7.0
    The show is about four kids who find another kid trapped in the supercomputer in an abandoned factory, they have to keep it a secret, but in doing so they must find a way to slip out of their classes sight unseen. The flaws this show has (despite it's interesting plot) are



    #1: Scene Reusage: As in reusing scenes from previous episodes so they don't have to spend too much money.



    #2: Bad Dialogue: The kids' voices are sometimes unbearable and some of the line delivery is weak.



    #3: Being Repetitive: The show is sometimes infamous for reusing plots from previous episodes, even using scenes like I mentioned above.



    #4: Being Inconsistant: There are many facts about some episodes that are sometimes ignored in following episodes.



    #5: Fillers: As in importing un important details in order to fill out the episode.



    However if you can get past these facts it's an enjoyable show that one could easily get attached to (like myself).moreless
  • An Underrated Classic

    9.5
    Plot: Four young Kadic Academy students: Jeremy, Ulrich, Yumi, and Odd, discover an abandon factory that contains a super computer. Within this computer, lies a virtual world called "Lyoko," and they meet a program named Aelita. However, in doing so, they wake up a dark virus named XANA, and is capable of destroying the world. Now the gang have to help Aelita deactivate the tower in Lyoko causing trouble in the real world, all the while Jeremy tries to come up with a materialization code to get Aelita out of Lyoko, so they can shut down the super computer and stop XANA for good. Luckily for them, if a tragedy does happen, they can go back in time and reset the events, but it can only work properly if no one dies.



    Verdict: After the first season, you really get into the development that comes with how theses characters are in their strong battle against XANA, revealing more about the supercomputer and Aelita. If people should get the chance, they should definitely check out Code Lyoko. It's not only one of the best shows to have ever been made, but as a show with much more potential that some would think.moreless
