So basically it was the same show all along, but the main difference was episode length/count? Where does G-Force come in though and why did they air that instead?

G-Force is a more faithful dub version of Gatchaman made in the 1980's when restrictions of violent acts on television became lax (whereas Battle of the Planets cut out the more violent parts and replaced them with footage of 7-Zark-7).

Actually, Sentai was an influence to Voltron's source material Golion, not the other way around.
I believe JabarR was saying that Gatchaman influenced Golion/Voltron as well as other shows (as in the five-member consisting of the main guy, the "rival" character, the big guy, the youngster, and the female member) .

Yes but still, Sentai was the more direct influence towards Golion.

Today i learned that David Cronenberg (The Fly, Scanners) has a son who’s also a director and i saw a very psychedelic arthouse film made by him called Infinity Pool. I hope he becomes a more high profile director some day.


I wouldn’t recommend it to people who don’t watch arthouse movies though. It’s also very adult-oriented if you know what i mean
Update on the M&M's situation. He has reliable sources in this video.
