My five year old son discovered Hot Wheels about a year ago...first the cars, then the books, and then the movie; Team Hot Wheels: The Origin of Awesome! [HD]. Knowing what a huge Hot Wheels fan he is, when I found this series I was pretty excited as I was sure he would love it. However, he was only four at the time, and I thought that maybe this show would be too "old" for him. So rather than buy an entire series, and possibly end up wasting my money, I purchased a single episode from Amazon Instant Video for him to try. Well, he absolutely loved it! So much so that he watched that same episode over and over and over again, back to back. LOL

I purchased the SD version and am quite happy with the video and audio quality; the graphics are beautiful and the sound quality perfect on my HD television. The story is action packed with lots of high speed car chases, with good guys squaring off against bad guy monster creatures. FYI, STARTING LINE is not the entire first season; it is merely the first six episodes in season one. The complete first season includes twenty-six episodes, as found on this DVD set, Hot Wheels: Battle Force 5- Complete First Season. Amazon Instant Video has BEHIND ENEMY LINES and THE CHOSEN ONE listed as Seasons 2 and 3, but in reality they are the continuation of Season 1. Apparently, Season 2 is not available on instant video. However it can be found on DVD, Hot Wheels Battle Force 5: Complete Season 2. I've checked and so far I cannot find a Hot Wheels Battle Force 5 Season 3 anywhere; I have concluded that there were only two seasons of the show, unfortunately.

It was my intention to purchase what Amazon has listed as "Season 3" here on instant video when I couldn't find it on DVD. I'm really glad I double-checked the episodes on instant video with the episodes on the DVDs I purchased, otherwise I would have wasted $10 buying what I thought to be Season 3, but what in reality is Season 1. Amazon you've got these labeled incorrectly, you need to fix that!!!

I love that my son enjoys Hot Wheels but as a parent, I prefer the original Hot Wheels movies. The characters of Battle Force 5 are whiny and predictable where as the original characters are funny and believable. I wish they would have kept the old characters and a similar storyline with the orange racetracks and real Hot Wheels cars!!

As for the kiddos, they love it so I guess it comes down to whether or not you will watch with them, or clean the kitchen because personally this is one I can't watch.

My son is 10 years old and has owned and loved Hot Wheels since he was a year old. He loved the Acceleracer series and he LOVES the Battle Force Five series. The Hot Wheels series is a good show - certainly a lot better than some of the cartoons that are out there today that are totally off the wall. Thanks Hot Wheels!!!

The storyline and plots are so very reminiscent of cartoons from the '80s, but the animation is ten times better. My kid loves this series, and although it doesn't have any rewatch value for me, my kid loves rewatching favorite episodes. From a child's point of view, this series is awesome!

Great series of Hot Wheels Battle Force 5! Wish there were more than 4 episodes per DVD and wish they put more out on DVD. The toys you can buy are great too.

My son loves this DVD series for some reason and was ecstatic to get it. He watched it non-stop for three days. Good entertainment for the price we paid.

My son loves Hot Wheels. He was glued to the screen while it played from start to finish. Need I say more? If the kid likes it, you get 5 stars.

I got this for my little boy because he loves watching this over and over on the cartoon channels. He loves it and there are no commercials!
