‘The Legend Of Vox Machina’ Season 1 Recap and Review

Prime Video’s The Legend Of Vox Machina started as a pipe dream for Critters everywhere, and it is now one of the most popular shows in the world. Based on the Dungeons and Dragons campaigns played by Critical Role, a group of nerdy voice actors, the show was only made due to a successful Kickstarter campaign. 

Now not only are long time fans thrilled, but Critical Role and Vox Machina has welcomed in a whole lot more supporters. The animated adult series was unafraid to dive right in with blood, sex, gore, and vulgar language scattered throughout the very first episode – and it never stopped.

The Legend Of Vox Machina is the perfect fit for Prime Video, as it very much resembles Invincible, an adult animated superhero show based on comic books.

The series was given a unique release schedule, with three episodes released each week for four weeks. Yes, the first season has just 12 less than 30-minute long episodes, but that didn’t stop it from delivering on many different levels.

The first three-episode arc is spent allowing new viewers to get to know these characters. Vox Machina is made up of seven members from different backgrounds. They are a ragtag group of mercenaries who are not afraid to get their hands dirty.
