5.0 out of 5 stars Like Herc & Xena, but better...if that's possible. December 27, 2004
Format:DVD
With the release of Herc and Xena to DVD, I am gladly collecting them. Xena seems like a little more serious and darker show than Herc, so I like it more, despite the fact that I'm a guy. But anyway, so I sit there and watch Herc or Xena and I remember that there's this other show that's somewhat similar in nature (no pun intended) to both Herc and Xena...and that's Beastmaster.

Beastmaster...I remember just checking out this series from time to time when it originally aired. Saw it on the episode guide of DISH Network and would tune in just to see if I could get into it. Unfortunately I couldn't. I found Tao to be bit annoying and quite frankly silly. So I never watched. But like I said, after watching my Herc and Xena DVDs, I decided that I wanted more and decided to give this Beastmaster a try on DVD. I can say happily that it was NOT a mistake. This series is great (when seen from the beginning). I guess my problem was just seeing a few scenes from Season 3 I think.

What makes this series great is that there are season-long story arcs with numerous re-occuring characters that really contribute to some great continuity between episodes. Now this isn't continuity as you would find on Deep Space Nine or Farscape, but continuity more in the way of Stargate SG-1 continuity. Events or character development (mostly with the re-occuring characters) that would occur in previous episodes would be relevant in future episodes. You didn't get this with Xena or Herc. In fact, I really didn't see this with DS9.

For example, Season 1 here basically has one story arc dealing with Dar's long lost love, Kyra, who has been imprisoned by King Zad and his Terrons of which of course leads to Dar's quest to free her.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a time of myth and legend September 21, 2003
Format:DVD
I thought the show was too simple when it first premiered, but later I realized that its simplicity is its greatest strength. You have a guy with a bone staff (the beastmaster) who communicates with animals and a guy with a jade ring (Tao) who seeks knowledge. They live in some "sanctuary" under some tree where civilization is sparse and often venture out to explore the wonders of the ancient world on their own terms unrestricted by all the unnecessary complexity forced upon us today by our societies.
They are also fond of being a pain in the neck to a certain King Zed, a fascinating villain who takes great pleasure in his life while doing absolutely anything in his power to preserve his rule. He is evil, motivated only by power, but intelligent, and even fascinates a certain Sorceress who is a student of a certain Ancient who supposedly knows the secrets of the universe but keeps them away from his student.
Anyway, season one is the best, so get it now. (Season Two is good too, while Season Three kind of sucks, in my opinion). The DVD quality is very good and everything is in 16:9 widescreen. Special features are few, but the excellent presentation of the episodes themselves makes up for that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful series. Trekkies: Try this out November 20, 2003
By Poppy
Format:DVD
I was very sceptical when I bought the first series thinking I would hate a series based on a muscle bound Tarzan like man. I am an avid Trekkie and have watched every Star Trek episode made, up to and including the 2nd season of Enterprise. What could I possibly see in a Jungle based series with no scientific implements or space exploration.
The very first episode blew my mind with it fabulous cinematography and excellent sound effects. Once I got into the series it started to look very similar to the original Star trek. With Dar replacing Captain Kirk and Tao as his right hand man the thinker (Spok without the Vulcan ears). They are out to explore the world and right its wrongs. Amusingly the sourcerers even have their own version of the "Prime Directive" which prohibits them from interfering in human affairs.
The special effects are great, the costumes are wonderful and the setting absolutely spectacular.

5.0 out of 5 stars Way to go ADV! September 29, 2003
Format:DVD
I am thrilled to see Beastmaster finally released on DVD. Out of the three seasons, the first, in my opinion, is the best. ADV-Films have chosen to release Beastmaster in season sets. The picture quality is what I'm beginning to expect from ADV. It's beautiful. ADV releases some of the best quality picture & sound ever. It is presented in 16:9 anamorphic widescreen, which makes it appear cinematic. The only extra features are all 22 of the episode previews and some ads for other ADV releases. Episode previews are something that I enjoy and want when TV series are released, so I am thankful that they at least added those. It would have been nice to have more extra features, but the show is being released more quickly than some other ADV series. (Mutant X, Farscape, & Andromeda for example.) Considering the price and the quality of this set, you should buy it today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much better than Hercules / Xena March 23, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If like me you hated how ignorant Hercules and Xena were, and want more serious fantasy like Lord of the rings. Beastmaster meets somewhere in the middle.
It of course does not have the big budget that rings did, but it still comes off very emotional and better written than Herc/Xena.
If you are an animal lover you may even tear up a few times while watching.
I'm glad that I finaly jumped in and bought the series.
