Villain Retrospect - Krulos
I have no idea how I missed Dino-Riders as a kid. This show would have been so up my alley my head would have exploded. It takes all the dinosaur action from Dinosaucers and amps it up to 11 with people riding fully-armed terrible lizards! Up until this point, my life has been a lie, but now I finally see what's been missing this whole time.
The cartoon is incredibly well animated for its initial episode, including a lot of special effects and great 80s dinosaur anatomy (the Godzilla-like T-Rex stance). It looks amazing and is a fantastic way to start the show. While the following episodes have a bit of a drop in quality, I would say it still is a little higher than its peers - I didn't spot any animation errors or recycled animation.
