5.0 out of 5 stars Finally- Exosquad Gets the DVD treatment it deserves December 30, 2008
Sixteen years is a long time. Children born during Exosquad's broadcast on USA network are now old enough to drive, quit school, and get married (parent signature required in most states). But I digress, to those of us who have waited patiently for all these long years; Universal Studios Home Entertainment's announcement that Exosquad is coming to DVD is prime proof of the phrase "better late than never".

Exosquad - Season 1 is the first of two seasons from the animated USA Network series that debuted in 1993 and will be followed by three more 2-disc sets totaling 52 episodes.

The show, for those who don't know, is considered by many to be the closest domestic attempt at Japanese anime to date. ExoSquad's creative staff weaved an ongoing tale centering on a single combat unit (the ExoSquad) and their exploits in a cosmic war raging between human beings and our own rebellious genetic creations, Neo-Sapiens. The setting spans the rocky planets of our solar system (Venus, Earth, Mars) with occasional visits to the asteroid-laden rings of gas-giant Saturn.

Like most anime entries, the 52-episode saga does not consist of 52 individual episodes but rather 52 parts of a single tale. Episodes typically end very abruptly and pick up in the next episode exactly where the previous one left off. Additionally the show doesn't candy-coat concepts such as death or betrayal. Like real wars, there are casualties and the team you happen to be rooting for doesn't always come out on top. Finally the use of mecha (in this case they are called E-Frames or ExoFrames) takes another chapter from the typically considered Japanese area of expertise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Babylon 5 + G.I. Joe = Exo-Squad March 4, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
True this happened while Babylon 5 was still going on, BUT the reason i wrote that as part of the title is that this show is dramatically brilliant for an animated series in the morning. For me this beat X-men on Saturdays. It beats X-men for it had a beginning middle and end, a strong structure for story telling...aside from that tid bit in the final you know what I am talking about. The animation may not be as crisp as 90s Batman, but you have to give them the props for the detail they were puting in the character's design and the design of the ships while bringing to life serious scenes and action sequences. If you haven't seen this show and are a fan of animated series in action, adventure, and down to earth characters and sci-fi political will be pleased for what it was doing at its time. Such a show should not be forgotten. If you are a fan of comedy then this is not for you. To those fans of X-men, GI Joe, to the battlestar Galactica and yes my fav check this out. Don't believe me or still not sure, read other reviews to prove our suggestions' sincerity.

My online friends and I have been praying for a DVD release of this show for quite some time. My old VHS tapes started loosing sound, watching on the computer YouTube episodes doesn't really satisfy completely, but it was the way. Thank you for this release. March is a drag, and April is taking too long to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as you're going to get April 14, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've been an Exo Squad fan since it's original airing, so I have to give this a 5. The DVD's are what you'd expect: all the Season 1 episodes on 2 discs.

There are no special features, no commentary tracks, no featurettes, and no foreign languages. Just episodes. As an Exo Squad fan, I would have loved features like this, though I was not expecting them given the relative obscurity of the show.

The discs also come in a white case instead of a normal black case. Apparently the producers thought this was some kind of kid's show!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cartoon, but no season 2 from Universal February 5, 2011
I loved this cartoon when I was younger.

It still holds up, it has a great story.

Anyways, I contacted Universal (who owns Exosquad) and they indicated that they had no intentions of releasing Season 2. This is really bad news. I am assuming that they do not see any potential profit in this franchise. So I suggest all of us Exosquad fans contact them and say we want Season 2 on DVD

5.0 out of 5 stars Exosquad-possibly the best animated cartoon made. February 24, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Can't believe it is finally here, been waiting for what seems like forever. Great story and characters, and is not a childish cartoon. I have had the 1st season on VHS and Laserdisc, and the 2nd season recorded from TV, I hope people continue to buy this to ensure the 2nd season is put out. Thank you finally for making available on DVD.

By goodbar
When this show first aired in the early '90's i was in 8th/9th grade and this was hands down the greatest cartoon series I had/have ever seen. When I found out this was FINALLY coming out on DVD, I pre-ordered my copy. The entire show is one giant arc like Babylon 5 and instead of Cylons like on BSG, we have genetically engineered NeoSapiens rebelling against humanity.

The complex dynamic characters, social themes, & long arcs are what made this show truly great and addictive. Unfortunately, the show fell victim to market conditions and was lost into obscurity, but not before a fantastic finale, and edge of your seat cliff hanger!

It seems that my generation (late 20's) has a thing for nostalgia (i.e. - Transformers & GI Joe live action movies). Exosquad was clearly targeted at this nostalgic generation at the time (teenagers & young adults, not children), so if sales are good, Exosquad could be next up to bat for a live action series or mini-series!

Enough ranting, can't say enough how highly I recommend Exosquad :)

Season 2?
I bought the entire G.I. Joe set at $50 each, except for the last season.
