Previously, on my review of Beast Wars Season 1: Put away the 80's synthesizer and pull out the 90's generic rock guitar! Created by the same company that created Reboot, this classic Computer Generated series is the follow up to the original Generation One Transformers. Beast Wars in America, Beasties in Canada (Canada has a rule that no show aimed at children can have war in the title, go figure). An enjoyable series that had previously been released in bare bones sets by Rhino (which I own and are now discontinued), it has now been rereleased by Shout! with new extras! Beast Wars has finally gotten a more deserving release!

1st Season:

Beast Wars (1)
Beast Wars (2)
The Web
Equal Measures
Chain of Command
Power Surge
Fallen Comrades
Double Jeopardy
A Better Mousetrap
Gorilla Warfare
The Probe
Dark Designs
Double Dinobot
The Spark
The Trigger (1)
The Trigger (2)
Spider's Game
Call of the Wild
Dark Voyage
The Low Road
Law of the Jungle
Before the Storm
Other Voices (1)
Other Voices (2)

The first season is more generic and simplistic as far as most of the stories go but it sets things up nicely and builds to a wonderful climax by season's end. The second half of the season really started to become inspired and storylines had more continuing arcs and characters were becoming much more developed and defined.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Just Prime! January 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the best transformers series there is. Unlike the others, this one keeps the main plot and main characters while adding acceptable additions. While it is targeting kids, it still has great humor every now and then."This guy's got bearings of chrome steel". If you loved it as a kid, buy it.

This was a fantastic tv series, one which blended CGI, good story telling, and characters that you actually cared about. As a child, this was one of my absolute favorite Saturday morning cartoons.
My friends and I all collected the toys, and played many hours re-creating the scenes from the show. In fact, several months ago, we pulled out all our old Beast Wars toys to reminisce.
This box set is solid, and the discs are great. What a fun way to re-live a part of childhood.
I would definitely recommend for children today. Even with the old CGI, it wont seem outdated, and the story telling is much better than the current crap out there for kids today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great re-issue of a great show March 8, 2012
Rhino put out a solid DVD collection of this great series some years back. ShoutFactory! puts out nice DVD boxsets (nice art, nice packaging, nice bonus features, etc.) and looks to be carrying the mantle that Rhino used to carry given the depth and breadth of their offerings. I love this show so much I bought this 2nd issue to have as backup and available for lending to any family or friends who I can convince to give it a try. This isn't just a great kid's cartoon but a flat out great out sci-fi series. Turns out Larry DiTillio and Bob Forward had worked together on SheRa: The Princess of Power and Larry did a bit of work on Babylon5. Larry also wrote some of the more amazing episodes of the overall amazing 1984 Filmation HeMan and the Masters of the Universe cartoon series. Simon Furman- a revered writer of transformers stories for the UK comics- was even brought in to pen a great episode. Top writing. The voice acting is as amazing as it can get in any cartoon (thank you Gary Chalk and David Kaye). There were staff with some real bona fides behind this show and the show delivers from beginning to end with a great story arc that really entertains. When G1 transformers get referenced (Starscream, Ravage, Autobot Ark, the flagship of the Decepticon armada "The Nemesis") you get the goose bumps and chills of awesomeness flowing through you. I get the chills just thinking about Ravage's great lines in those amazing episodes aboard the Nemesis and you will too! You too will be speaking in Waspinator speak or para-phrasing dino Megatron's "Egggggsellent!" every chance you get too after taking in this beautiful show. I look forward to watching it again (and again) with my boys.
