Watch ZIM eat waffles while a pair of backseat drivers make trouble from beyond the stars. See Mortos steal souls as a Fry cook appears from all that space. Yes boys and girls, there is a Santa... and he's bent on world domination!

The DVDs come to an end with this final volume. For those who haven't gotten their hands on the unaired episodes, you're in for a major treat. Here are the episodes on this volume.

GIR Goes Crazy and Stuff / Dib's Wonderful Life of Doom

TAK the Hideous New Girl

The Most Horrible Xmas Ever

Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars

The Girl Who Cried Gnome / Dibship Rising

Vindicated! / Voting of the Doomed

Mortos der Soulstealer / ZIM Eats Waffles

Gaz, Taster of Pork

The Frycook What Came From All that Space

But first, here's a little backstory. ZIM was on the verge of being cancelled by the time the second season was started. The first season ended with TAK, and the first seven episodes of season two were already being animated. Then Nick pulled the plug on the show. But not after one last episode Jhonen proposed to do to end the series with a bang. So, 'The Most Horrible Xmas Ever,' which was scheduled to be made near the end of season two, was pushed up and made, thus explaining Minimoose's unusual appearence. Minimoose did have an introduction, but it was never completed. So 'Xmas' aired, and the remaining six completed episodes were shown around the world, but not here in the US. And now, we can finally see them. WATCH Dib conjure up the ancient being Mortos der Soulstealer! MARVEL at the horrible pig girl that is Gaz! GASP at ZIM eating waffles for eleven whole minutes!

There will be commentary for almost all episodes, and also the animatics of course. But I hope they include some of the artwork, scripts, and other things they had completed for the incomplete season two episodes. There were at least ten that were at least laid out.

Firstly, Jen down there doesn't have all the facts straight. Yes, the uncut version of the Christmas episode was not on the disc, but it wasn't just some rumor spread by fanboys. It was actually supposed to be on the disc, and it's on the description on the back of the DVD box. However, because of a mixup at Media Blasters, they accidentally put the wrong episode on the disc. I hear they're trying to fix the problem.

Anyway, on to the DVD. This one was probably the best volume of the three. The unaired Season 2 episodes, along with my personal favorite episode The Frycook What Came From All That Space, are on the disc, as well as the Season 1 Finale and, of course, the Christmas episode. Unlike the previous 2 volumes, all the episodes on this volume have commentary on them. The commentary for this volume is probably the funniest out of the three as well. On the second disc there's the interview with the production crew, which interviews Bryan Konietzko, Jason Stiff, Chris Graham, Ian Graham, and Rayfield Angrum. Still no interview with Jhonen Vasquez, which is a disappointment.

Although Media Blasters made a mistake with the Christmas episode and there was no interview with Jhonen, this DVD volume still deserves 5 stars. Invader Zim is probably the funniest show in existance, and it shows on this volume.

For all you Zim fans that weren't able to see the unaired-in-America Zim eppies, this DVD is for you. It features two disks and plenty of action and zimmy humor. It's got the UNCUT Zim Christmas episode, "The Most Horrible Christmas Ever!" and much more. (in zim voice: SO MUCH MORE!) So if you never got the chance, like myself, to watch the horrible zimmy madness that never showed on TV, and the other few episodes that did go on TV, and stuff, then click that pre order button. Just Do it.

...If you click it, I'll let you hold Pustulio's little hand...

As fabulous as this show is, my first thought would be, someone please....pleeeeeaaaase have enough sense to put this show back on the air!!! I have to be honest, I've known about this show for years. I just barely started watching it, and the more episodes I watch, the funnier it gets, and the more addictive it becomes. I find myself seriously craving MORE ZIIIIIIIM to the point of explosion!! And of course, like previous LEGENDARY cartoons (i.e. Angry Beavers, well IMO at least) Nick has the stupidity to cancel it (but I understand why given that it shouldn't have started on Nick to begin with - the humor is too mature for small children).

Now that this show has such a massive following, the smart thing to do would be to put this on a network not geared towards children. There are so many cartoons these days not geared towards children, and the ones that are still around are wildly popular. I'm just waiting for a network to see the massive potential they'd have here and start creating more episodes of Zim. Will someone out there have enough sense to start up Zim again and please all of us Zim lovers? Probably not. But it still gives me great comfort to think that it's possible, and that one day, a network might pull their head out and quench the publics thirst for what we want.....NEW ZIM!!
