Editorial Reviews

Invader Zim's mighty need to destroy all of humanity knows no bounds. Fortunately for Earth, he's a cosmically inept fool! But this Invader has more to deal with than that self-proclaimed protector of our planet, Dib. The path to conquest is paved with hazardous challenges, which include all of the prickly, meat-flavored horrors that Earth has to offer. Zim must outwit Mall Security, endure the terror of Bloaty's Pizza Hog, and defeat the evil space babies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worse... Or Better? July 25, 2004
By Jen
Format:DVD
Seeing as how quite a few of the online reviews for this particular DVD are quite hard to read, I shall provide you with brilliant (and metaphorical) insight to the wonder that is Zim.

I remember seeing the commercials for Zim on Nickelodeon and thinking that this is something worth seeing. Sadly, I didn't get around to watching it until Nanozim came out, and I was officially hooked.

I can sum up the wonder of this series in one word: screaming.

All of the voice actors and actresses in this show scream at the top of their lungs. And it's a proven fact that the public likes screaming.

With brilliant colors and quirky animation, this show is sure to keep the interest of people with the shortest attention spans. Being one of those people, I can vouch for that.

The reason I'm excited about this particular set...

Well, actually, there are several reasons:

1) Commentary on most of my favorite episodes. Please do not miss out on this! I never laughed so hard in my life. Jhonen has to be one of the funniest and most charming cartoonists on Earth right now. Please... please hit that button on your remote and listen to the freakin' commentary.

2) This brings us closer to the unaired episodes!

I've had the privilege of seeing a few of the unaired eps and I have to say, the writing is wittier, the colors are brighter, and the acting is doomier and squishier. (Those are positive adjectives, by the way).

3) High quality versions of the all the episodes that were so horribly broadcasted on cable television.

4) Extras! Extras! And more extras!

5) At such a cheap price, it feels like I'm stealing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Dib pig won't see this one coming!" August 20, 2004
Format:DVD
Ah, Invader ZIM. It's grown quite a large fanbase, and it was only a matter of time before it came on DVD. And now it is. It is a bit of a letdown, because the original cover for this set, drawn by Jhonen, was much cooler, but Nick vetoed it. So now we're stuck with this generic stock art. Anyway, this is Volume Two of the set of three, and it's got some gems on it. Since the episodes aired out of order, here's what's on this two disc set:

Plague of Babies / Bloaty's Pizza Hog*

Door to Door / FBI Warning of Doom*

Bolognius Maximus / Game Slave 2

Battle of the Planets

Halloween Spectacular of Spooky Doom

Mysterious Mysteries* / Future Dib

Hobo 13 / Walk for your Lives

Megadoomer / Lice

Abducted / The Sad, Sad Tale of Chickenfoot

(episodes with an asterisk do not have commentary)

Abducted, possibly my favorite episode, is here, where ZIM and GIR get abducted by two idiotic aliens who think he's a human. Also very great episodes are Megadoomer, Game Slave 2, and Walk for your Lives, which I believe never aired here in the US. But, we'll have plenty to see when the unaired episodes release on volume 3.

Well, all in all, if you love ZIM, you can't afford to miss this set. Even if you don't, it's worth checking out. This is a frighteningly original and hilarious and beautiful series, that definitely should have ran longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chapter Two: Our prayers are answered again May 16, 2004
By Jenny
Format:DVD
The second installment of the Invader Zim DVD series is here. The adventures are crazier and the doom is stronger in this second DVD. "Progressive Stupidity" is a must have for any fan Invader Zim, cartoons in general, or just plain breathing. Like the sweet, sweet blood candies in our veins, this Invader Zim DVD is a must have item for any living organism. You will not be disappointed by this DVD. In fact you will be so happy that you bought this DVD that feathery soft puppies will rain from the sky and litter your front lawn with squeally joy. You owe it to yourself to buy this DVD. Do it for the sky puppies.

Invader Zim has to be one of my most favorite cartoons, and there are few out there I enjoy at all. Jhonen Vasquez, known to me as the creator of the infamous "Johnny the Hommicidal Maniac" comic books, brings his twist of insane humor to this fun and hilarious cartoon series.

First, a summary of the series. A technologically advanced races of aliens, the Irken Empire, is devoted to conquering all of known space. To aid them in this task, they select a group of elite Irken soldiers, known as Invaders, to scout ahead the selected-for-conquest planets and eradicate all resistance. They are the top, the best, the most brilliant (and tallest); none of these could describe Invader Zim. He's a discrace, responsible for the failure of Operation: Impending Doom 1, nearly destroying his whole race, but despite all this he believes himself to be mighty, brilliant and a force to be reckoned with. To keep him from screwing up Operation: Impeding Doom 2, his leaders (the Almighty Tallest) send him to a "mystery planet" to keep him out of the way. Unfortunately for us, they end up picking Earth. Zim lands and begins his infiltration of the ignorant human population, disguising himself as a normal green Earth boy with a skin condition. Only Dib, a classmate and paranormal investigator, sees through his simple disguise and swears to expose Zim. Dib is not the hero of the series of course, he's just as much a screw-up as Zim.

Volume 2 of this series has some of the best episodes of the series before its unfortunate cancelation. "Battle of the Planets" reveals more details of the Irken race, the progress of Operation: Impending Doom 2, and that Dib is not alone in his pursuit of Zim and the paranormal.
