Koch Vision and Gaylord Productions presents "ADVENTURES OF THE GALAXY RANGERS: THE COLLECTION VOL. 2" (1986.1989) (774 mins/Color) (Dolby Digital) --- The final 33 episodes of anime space western "Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers" are included in this volume, featuring the voice work of Jerry Orbach (LAW & ORDER) and Corrine Orr (SPEED RACER) --- Created by the famed anime studio Tokyo Movie Shinsha, the series follows a quirky team of intergalactic rangers who fight for justice on the frontiers of the future.

In 2086, two peaceful aliens journey to Earth seeking our help. In return, they gave us the plans for our first hyperdrive, allowing mankind to open the doors to the stars. We have assembled a team of unique individuals to protect Earth and our allies. Courageous pioneers committed to the highest ideals of justice and dedicated to preserving law and order across the new frontier --- The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers (1986-1989) was an animated Space Western television series created by Robert Mandell and Gaylord Entertainment Company. The series combined sci-fi stories with a typical wild-west-"feel", elements of a space opera and with the traditional fantasy elements of sword and sorcery. It was one of the first anime-style shows to be primarily created in the US, although the actual animation was done in Japan by the famed Tokyo Movie Shinsha, and at the time it was aired, it was a revolutionary children's show --- When the series originally aired, episodes were aired five days a week until all sixty five episodes were shown, with the episodes largely being aired out of order.

Years before Firefly, there was a one-season wonder of a Space Western. A brief but glorious run led to a fandom that persists to this day. This underrated little gem would make a fine live-action movie, but until then, we have this collection.

To say GR is a cult classic is understating things a bit. It's in the top 100 cartoon section at fanfiction.net, it has a surprisingly dedicated fanbase (despite our small size), and plenty of critical acclaim from anime fans despite an American origin. It was groundbreaking at the time for its integration of CGI and cel animation, the casting of character actors for voice talent, its nascent use of mytharc structures, and its better-developed character and story structure than its toy-advert peers.

It took over 20 years, three production companies and...let's face it...plenty of groveling by fans like me in order to get this done. Kosh really went out of their way to do this right. Commentary tracks are on the high-end episodes; Christopher Rowley is awesome at deadpan snark, Henry Mandell has a lot to say about the challenge of voicing so many characters, and Robert Mandell sticks mostly to comments about production hell). There are bonus features of artwork and notes about the ships and technology.

Oh, and there are music tracks. The music was an early outing of John van Tongeren (composer for the 1990's Outer Limits, Thelma and Louise, and The 4400) and Peter Wetzler, with tracks sung by rockers Steve Overland and Myles Hunter. Yes, it's 80's rock - AWESOME 80's rock.

Like any 80's series, it has its share of cheese and a couple of true stinkers. most Rangers fans will tell you that "Mothmoose" is mind-bogglingly bad, and anything starring Buzzwang is best watched with your MST3K filters on.

I used to watch this when I was a kid, and it is a blast to watch it again. Not super by today's standards, very campy and stuff, but still fun to watch, especially for fans of the series. And the video/audio quality are excellent, far above what I expected.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm not a metamorph! July 24, 2009
Don't you dare pick up volume 1 without picking up volume 2, as well. Some of my favorite episodes are in this package.

As I was saying...

Mature viewers, such as my friends and I, weren't the intended audience. On the whole, the writers actually wrote up to their viewers, as opposed to everyone else at the time, creating 30 minute toy commercials, and writing down to them.

Reclaiming a lost wife, coming to grips with a past life, and other advanced storylines ran through the series like a golden thread, in stark contrast to the childish and predictable plots in other cartoons at the time.

So many great characters, and great stories. I've already watched, and rewatched every episode that delt with the Super Troopers, and some of Goose's other issues. I wish the character of Niko had been explored furthur, but I'll take what I can get.

I was surprised to see this collection finally come to light. No, that's wrong, I was extatic. This isn't a shoddy slap together product, either. It's crammed full of artwork, info, and bonus materials on the DVD itself.

What's more, you can play the 'Galaxy Rangers theme', and 'Rangers are forever', until you can't see straight. All these years, and those songs are still hardwired into my brain. Yes, the cartoon had fantastic music, as well.

So, why are you still reading this? Show some support, and maybe a future movie or two will be based off of a good cartoon for a change.

No guts, no glory!
