Editorial Reviews

Well, a compendium of highlights from a mission of doom that isn’t going quite as planned. But be warned, INVADER ZIM has come to assume control of Earth and its annoying inhabitants, and he WILL succeed. But until then, you, vile earth fiend, can watch. Watch and learn how to infiltrate the masses and, well, um…just WATCH!

5.0 out of 5 stars Operation Doom February 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
This new DVD, Operation Doom, contains all the highest rated episodes of IZ on Nicktoons.
Amazon happened to send me my copy a day earlier than expected so here is the included episode

The Fry Cook What Came From All Space
Career Day
Battle Dib
The Nightmare Begins
Gaz, Taster of Pork
Vindicated!
The Voting Of Doom
Hobo 13
Walk For Your Lives
Mysterious Mystery
Future Dib
Plague of Babies
Bloaty's Pizza Hog

Part One of Review: The DVD
It is a good DVD, it does not have any special features though just the episodes. I hope this sells well and if the rumors are true, Nick will bring back Invader Zim. If you already have all of the DVD's you may not want to buy this, but you can still buy it if you have the extra cash if you want it back. It is really good for new fans who just want a taste of Invader Zim since it includes good episodes and the first one. PS: Gir Steals the show in this series. He is hyper, random, and hilarious.

Part Two: The Show
This show is fantastic. It is worth buying, and is random, dark, and funny. It is a short lived series but every episode is funny, and this selection is just fine. As I said before, If you are a new Invader Zim fan, you will want to buy this before all The DVDs because it is low-priced and will give you a taste of the hilarious show and it is very funny.

The Bottom Line:
I would buy this and I think everyone should have this DVD, or any of the other Zim DVDs. Even though this show is a marketing scheme to see if it sells well. Everyone should have this, or another Invader Zim DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Third season for DVD sales? Doubtful. March 24, 2011
Don't get me wrong, I love the entire series - I'm amazed my DVDs of the show still even work considering how much I watch them. But the people behind Invader Zim made it pretty clear how much they did not like working for Nickelodeon because of all the restrictions put on them. I mean, would you like pouring your heart and soul into one episode for the better part of a year only for some prick in a suit to tell you it wouldn't be aired? They hired the mastermind behind Johnny The Homicidal Maniac - did they expect cutesy?

Odds are if the show came back, it would not be by the original creators and cast, meaning it would suck. I think this is just an attempt by Nick to line their wallets a little thicker because they know Zim has a cult following that was augmented by them taking it off the air. Look at the DVD cover - it's not even Mr. Vasquez's art. He has a distinct style and what I see on that video case is not his doing. This DVD is good for folks who don't have the box set or who want to "try" the show first. Then again, there aren't really any bad episodes.

I had my hopes up thinking this was never-before-seen material, like the episode with the infamous blood-stained GIR or maybe an explanation of where Mini-Moose came from (notice how he just kind of showed up out of nowhere in the final episode? He had a story, but it was in all the episodes Nick banned).

Invader Zim was canciled in 2001? And yet its fan base is still in the thousands after 9 years! Even if you own the DVD series or think this is just NICKS attempt to get more money out of you PLEASE BUY THIS DVD... Its worth a shot what is thier to lose? 20 dollars? thats not much! And if it really does bring Zim back with new episodes wouldn't the meesly 20 dollars be worth it?!?!?!! I think so...

Nickelodeon had recently released this show on two dvd sets - "Season 1" and "Season 2". While I originally assumed that since this disc contains about half the episodes(someone correct me if I'm wrong) it would cost about half of the full set, it seems to be cheaper and aimed at prospective fans who don't want to spend a lot of money on the full set.

Of course, there's also the rumor that if enough of these dvds sell, Nickelodeon will consider animating new Invader Zim episodes. While there's no real evidence to back up the claim, something was said at InvaderCON this year that made me almost believe it could be true. I don't remember exactly what was said, but it was something along the lines of "Nick's watching to see how many DVDs sell" and also "they're impressed at how many fans there are". Something like that.

In my personal opinion, if you like this show, you should buy this DVD to show your support, even if you already own the others.

There's no picture on the disc itself. At first I was disappointed but it became a huge plus when I had all five of the InvaderCON guests sign it. (=

5.0 out of 5 stars Doomie doomie doomie dooooom December 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
Always loved this series. I heard about this video while reading about the fact they were releasing it to see if there was still interest in it for another season. There is most definitely interest! While the episodes on this are included on other DVDs, this is still most certainly a worth while purchase to send to someone who has never seen it before and to support another possible season of the show.

5.0 out of 5 stars seriously? November 25, 2011
I would like to advocate the purchase of this to anyone interested (it has good episodes, so good...), especially if the story is true about this being a test run. However, most of this is written for the Nick Execs... seriously? Is the fact that, a decade after the first episode, Invader Zim is still a massive cultural phenomenon not enough for you to bring it back? That hot topic still happily unveils new Zim merchandise? the fact that there are kids who were, maybe, five when the show came out running around in GIR shirts? WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM US?

I feel better now

1.0 out of 5 stars This show stinks!!!
This show is all about aliens who are dumb and have no brains. This show is mindless and dumb. My opinion is to never, ever watch this.
