To quote my children, the movies were okay, but this series is horrible. It completely ruins the books, and they lost interest after one episode. They found it too moralistic, too heavy on the lessons learned, and not very funny.

I've watched through this series with my son, and through what's aired of Defenders of Berk (the sequel series) as well.

It's a great continuation of the HTTYD movie, segmented in short TV-friendly episodes. The tone of the series takes on a more light, kiddy appeal, although the characters keep their same quirks and charms, and are developed with far more detail. Even characters from the books (Alvin) make appearance in the series.

Much of the animation brilliance from the movie comes forth in the TV series. First off, the majority of voice actors are the same, which is great (because it's always oddly "off" when a voice actor is different. That being said, Leonidas-style Stoick played by Gerard Butler has been replaced). The soundtrack is *exactly* the same which is absolutely wonderful. The animation has dropped down a few notches, but it's still many notches above other 3D shows, especially considering many of the "sets" are still the same as the ones in the movie. There are still many inspiring action sequences though, especially in dragon flight.

Speaking of the dragons, the best part of this series is getting to see all of the different types. The HTTYD universe and story (according to Dreamworks) is thoroughly explored. It's really fun to watch.
