Editorial Reviews

Prepare yourself for some Irken yuletide goodness as Zim concludes its triumphant DVD release. Featuring the highly sought after "unaired" season two episodes, ZIM fans will finally get what they've been waiting for. 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars "I had a sammich in my head!" August 20, 2004
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible October 17, 2004
By Madness
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ohhh yes. YES! August 9, 2004
By Yoshi
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...

5.0 out of 5 stars The EXPLOSIVE Conclusion to Invader ZIM! August 7, 2004
By MajorB
In the far reaches of space, the Irken Empire moves ever closer to universal domination. Unbeknowest to the Irkens, however, important battles are occuring on Earth between child paranormalist Dib, and ZIM, an annoying, stubborn Irken Invader (Invaders are those who infiltrate planets and find out how to take over it). As the series moves closer to it's end, the almost-Irken Invader TAK comes into play, and the Empire begins the most deciding battles of all: crush the resistance or be crushed.

Unfortunately, ZIM was cancelled before it reached the two part Season 2 finale, which would have set up the next phase in the show's storyline. However, you can watch the series progress throughout the 3 volumes (this being the last) and discover the story arc that seemed to only become clear in Season 2.

From mastermind Jhonen Vasquez (comics "Johnny the Homicidal Maniac," "I Feel Sick," "Squee!") and director Steve Ressel (tv shows "Rocko's Modern Life," "Stressed Eric," "God, the Devil, and Bob") comes Invader ZIM, the show that Nickelodeon just couldn't handle.

On these discs, you'll find the completely uncut version of "The Most Horrible Xmas Ever," the infamous Christmas special, "TAK: The Hideous New Girl," which introduced TAK, Fan favorites "Backseat Drivers From Beyond the Stars" and "The Frycook What Came From All That Space," the zany "ZIM Eats Waffles," "Gaz, Taster of Pork"- the episode that got ZIM cancelled, and more.

Hurry and grab yourself one of the finest animated series ever made today!
