This DVD set collects the first 13 episodes of Gargoyles, from the 5-part opening miniseries, "Awakening", to "Reawakening". The episodes are uncut, and unlike recent cable showings, the famous anti-gun episode, "Deadly Force", has not been excised. While there has been no remastering of the series, this isn't necessary, as the transfer here is nothing short of impeccable. The special features, while not as jam-packed as some animation DVDs, are of great quaity, as they include commentaries for the "Awakening" 5-parter (which is heavily laden with spoilers, so be warned if you aren't familiar with the series, or can't recall future events), the original series pitch, and a feature on the show's fanbase.
If you've enjoyed any of the cartoons I've alluded to, or are just interested in a good, smart show, by all means buy this set. And if you're already familiar with Gargoyles, it's safe to say that you know you want it, because it's just that good.
The story of "Gargoyles" revolves around 6 modern day survivors of an ancient clan of gargoyles from 10th century Scotland. These powerful and intimidating winged creatures live and do battle against evil by night, and sleep by day in the form of defenseless stone statues. Their leader, the imposing and noble Goliath, is plagued with worries brought upon him by the ambiguous nature of the 20th century and the people and gargoyles that repeatedly weave in and out of his circle of trust. The one true ally of the gargoyles is Manhattan Police Detective Elisa Maza, who does her best to protect and guide the creatures as they discover the realities and dangers of modern-day, big-city life. They are threatened by new and old enemies on an almost daily basis, the worst of which is Goliath's former mate, a vengeful female named Demona.Read more ›
What is it about the show that is still bringing in new fans even though it's been cancelled for EIGHT YEARS? Well, the story is about creatures who are "stone by day, warriors by night." A thousand years ago, they protected their castle at night, while the humans protected them while they slept. The humans treated the gargoyles with nothing but disrespect, and the gargoyles were betrayed, shattered in their stone sleep, and the surviving gargoyles (Goliath, Hudson, Brooklyn, Broadway, Lexington, and Bronx) were cursed to sleep in stone until "the castle rose above the clouds." A thousand years passed. Billionaire David Xanatos learned of the gargoyles, and had the castle moved, stone by stone, to the top of his skyscraper. The gargoyles awakened in a strange new world and had to learn to adapt if they wanted to survive.Read more ›
