4.0 out of 5 stars Childhood Favorite January 17, 2005
Verified Purchase
This is the second in the series, if you can call it that; most episodes stand alone, and the intro to each show gives you most of the info you need to start out. It's four episodes, mostly dealing with the character of Shane Gooseman; thus the DVD title "Supertroopers". (You won't know what I'm talking about there unless you've watched it. That's ok.)

The DVD quality is very good. They kindly set it so that you can skip the little intro at the beginning if you want to, just by pressing the "next scene" button on your DVD. I like that; it's a small thing but a courtesty that means a lot to me, as I've seen some DVD sets of more recent and popular shows that were less user-friendly and made you fast-forward instead. Very inconsiderate of them. *sniff*

Again, as in my review for the other DVD, the basics: it's a space western cartoon from the late 80's early 90's timeframe. The animation is poor in the execution of movement; jerky and stilted. The dialog is not great. But the plots and general art quality are very, very well done; surprisingly sophisticated. And there are some jokes I get now that I missed then. Anyone ever seen "Blazing Saddles"? Walk this way....

All in all, I'm glad I got it and I hope they put out the rest of the episodes on DVD. I was afraid that when I watched it again as an adult I'd be disapointed, but instead I'm catching little things I missed and enjoying it in a different way.

Long, Boring Side Note: As an adolescent watching the show, I became a little confused by Shane's name.

5.0 out of 5 stars Galaxy Rangers - Ho! October 4, 2004
The Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers was a show ahead of its time - it had *real* writers (Christopher Rowley and Bryan Daley to name just two of them) doing the stories and the stories they wrote were *not* fluff.

The show was written and pitched without having the toy deal in place - unlike He-Man which was the toy first then a cartoon to support the toys.

Then, it was lost to us fans in the states. The tapes became all but impossible to find here - but the fans didn't give up. We're quiet, but we're here and when we got word that this project was *finally* in the works we were skeptical - having heard that line before. This time, it's happening. Having seen the cleaned up video - all I can say is **wow.** It was sovibrant and crystal clear! I'm breathless with anticipation in seeing the rest of the series in surround sound digital audio and the cleaned up video.

Galaxy Rangers is truly one fo the lost treasures in terms of 80's cartoons with its stories and strong characters. The thing that makes it stand out from so many other cartoons is that the female member of the team is *not* a token character - she more than pulls her weight when it comes to either hand to hand combat with the bad guys or using her considerable pyschic talents to pull the team's fat out of the fire.

The cartoon has withstood the test of time with its quality animation and superbly written stories.

I highly recommend this show for anyone looking for a quality cartoon to watch with their kids. It's written so that the whole family can watch this.

As for Sir Robert's hope to do a direct-to-DVD movie.... Wow! I would be first in line to buy that! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars To Picardfan007... September 21, 2004
Verified Purchase
A GR fan from the US:

No worries. All 65 episodes of "Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers" will be released over the course of one year or just a little longer. Also, check out an interview with GR creator Robert Mandell ([...] He's not only getting this series out on DVD...he's also got, in the works, a special complete series collection in about a year or so with audio commentaries and extras. But wait, there's more!! He's also working on direct-to DVD NEW GR in the form of either new episodes or a series of "movies" that will put closure to some of the story arcs (example: the Eliza Foxx story arc).

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last. January 31, 2006
Verified Purchase
Why does this deserve a five? It hasn't aged well at all. The animation is clunky, the voice "acting" is questionable and many of the plot lines are hokey. But it is sensational. Why? The characters are easy to adore and get behind, the music is awesome and the whole premise is enthralling. This disc features episodes that mainly center around Goose and his background as a Supertrooper. It is unfortunate that Koch is not releasing all the episodes and the few that they have have not been done in chronological order as they orignally aired.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh yes! It's finally here! June 21, 2005

I've been waiting for this since the show stopped airing on television. This was my all time favorite cartoon particularly for it's quirky characters, compelling stories, and surprisingly strong continuity. Now all they have to do is put the Bionic Six on DVD and I can die a happy man. ^_^

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally ! September 28, 2004
My alltime fav cartoon, just a tad better than the transformers.

The only cartoon when I was a kid that treated it's audience like adults ! Meaning, it wasn't childish. The plots, music, humour and message were both mature in thought, sensible, professionally executed and most of all very cool. I'm really looking forward to the release !

This is one of the best cartoons made in its day. The music was effective, great stories and characters. There is a lot of detail, just not in the animation.
