4.0 out of 5 stars Great value, but not as good as seasons 1 - 3 May 4, 2004
Format:DVD
The double sided DVD has the two feature length ReBoot movies which made up season four of the series. "Daemon Rising" and "My Two Bobs" are, in turn, a good action flick (guest starring hexadecimal and - of course - daemon) and a comedy/romance/action flick (guest starring megabyte/megaframe). Both are widescreen (which is very cool) and the CGI animation is better than ever. But...
Where Seasons 1 and 2 were feet finding missions, and Season 3 was a wonderful parody session (of games and movies) Season 4 just doesn't have "legs" in these areas --- a take off of Austin Powers, a take off of Indiana Jones?? That the games are pushed way into the background is a sign that I think even the creators knew they'd ran out of steam on these topics.
For fans, the season is great in that you get dropped right into the action --- but if you are new to the show, you'll be somewhat lost. As a fan myself, this isn't a problem, but it may be if you are new to the show.
One sad aspect: this is the last series of the show, but it ends on a significant cliffhanger (not quite Twin Peaks style, but getting up there).
Technically, the sound and picture are great - no issues there at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Bang and a Whimper May 18, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"This is the way the world ends," penned poet T.S. Eliot, "not with a bang but a whimper." The wonderful series that was ReBoot ends with both: the bang of the two full-length movies on this DVD, and the whimper from Frisket and ReBoot's gazillion fans. Why four stars? Five because it's ReBoot, and three because this DVD should be better than it is (averaging four stars). It looks like ReBoot has been listening to its critics, and that's a bad thing. After parodying every TV, movie and social situation, ReBoot is in danger of becoming a parody of itself.
As we all know, season three was "edgier" than seasons one and two and formed a continuous story. But after reading my ReBoot Guide, a fan e-mailed me asking how to get the first two seasons. Why? He felt the third season was too "edgy" but wanted his kid to see how great ReBoot was (when it ran on ABC). V4.0 (this stands for "version 4.0" but Amazon calls it "volume 4," confusing it with the fourth DVD of the third season) is "edgier" than the third season, as if someone has been reading bad graphic novels and got their puns from the ash can outside Comedy Central. Former ReBoot producer, Chris Brough, is not listed in the credits: perhaps his was the restraining hand that kept back such excesses. When it first appeared, ReBoot was widely hailed as fresh and new, and had nothing to prove. This ReBoot tries to prove it anyway, and it tries too hard. Oddly enough, ReBoot could still please everyone. Run these movies on Cartoon Network's Toonami or Adult Swim blocks, rerun the first two seasons on the teen or evening slots, and bring out the first two seasons on DVD. Critics au contraire, ReBoot has always had something most other CGI series don't--soul. It's always been about Dot, Bob, Enzo, and (whimper)--oh yeah--Frisket.

2.0 out of 5 stars Audio issue requires a fix May 6, 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
For both features of this double-sided disc, the sound is "dopplered down," giving all of the dialog a very low pitch. Have seen this expressed on a few other websites but no official word yet from Anchor Bay Entertainment. Not so much a big deal for folks watching this for the first time, but for people familiar with the Reboot series and characters . . . it's incredibly distracting. Rated down because of the defect. Overall, a great DVD for the price. A little sparse on the extras, but it's just nice to be able to get more of this series on DVD. I encourage anyone that has this same issue with their DVD to contact Anchor Bay Entertainment via their website and make them aware of the issue and hopefully prompt them to provide replacements.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE Best ReBoot EVER! July 21, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is the best animation I've seen from Mainframe Entertainment. The story is fantastic, the art is beautiful (Daemon's Lair is absolute eye-candy) and as usual the parodies are hysterical. If you love ReBoot this is a definite must-have. If you've never seen ReBoot you may not understand some things, but you can still enjoy it. I recommend buying the entire third season (Volume 3, No. 1-4) and watching it before you see this DVD. The third season is just as good as this season and is definitely worth buying.

As for the sound issues that some people have mentioned, I just bought this DVD from Amazon and did not notice any sound problems. All of the character's voices sounded just like they did on television. It looks as if the manufacturer has fixed the sound problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars The 4th and last Season May 4, 2004
Format:DVD
Reboot fans rejoice! This is THE DVD. "Daemon Rising" and "My Two Bobs" are featured on this single two-sided DVD (180 minutes). Here are the pertinent facts.
1. Anchor Bay Entertainment is the producer of this Reboot DVD, replacing ADV from the previous releases of Reboot DVDs.
2. It is in 1:78:1 widescreen format enhanced for 16 x 9 TVs.
3. A character gallery is the only added feature.
4. "Daemon Rising" (90 minutes - (side 1)
5. "My Two Bobs" (90 mins - side 2)
These two feature length movies continue the story line after REBOOT - The Battle Comes Home. Thanks REBOOT for all the good times and memories. Fans, do you think we can get the original TV series on DVD? Lets try. Amazon.com...Do your thing.
