Product Description

Returning from the wastelands of the Web, our hereos find themselves in the ruins of what was once their beautiful home. Through stormy skies and collapsed buildings, the battle for Mainframe continues as they reunite with their family and friends, overcome personal demons and find themselves face-to-face with their old enemies, Megabyte and Hexadecimal. Third season, episodes 13-16.

Amazon.com

The third season of this computer-animated series stumbles to a conclusion in these last four episodes. Despite the numerous writing credits, each episode juxtaposes long stretches of filler, where nothing really happens, with periods of frenzied but difficult-to-follow action. In "Showdown" archvillain Megabyte, who sounds like George Sanders as Shere Kahn in Disney's The Jungle Book, prepares to escape in a reddish sphere after a duel with Enzo. Mouse does something on a keyboard that causes tentacles to sprout from the sphere and destroy Megabyte. What she does and how she does it is never explained, and her preemptive strike prevents Enzo from destroying the villain, as a hero should. Simulations of Megabyte pop up in the next episode, while Bob struggles to save the cybercity, only to vanish inexplicably. The first all-computer-animated television series, Reboot inadvertently showcases the limits of the technology. The motion-capture technique gives the characters an unsettling weightless look, which robs their fights and gymnastics flips of any power. The elaborate surface patterns, brightly colored special effects, and three-dimensional camera moves can't disguise the fact that motion capture is still inferior to limited drawn animation. Rated "suitable for all ages," but violence (including suggestions of torture), grotesque imagery, and ethnic stereotypes are inappropriate for children under 10. The show played in an edited form on the Cartoon Network. --Charles Solomon

Customer Reviews

ReBoot was one of the best shows ever created.
Adam Dahlkoetter
Literary critiques aside, volume four of the third season of ReBoot is perhaps the best set of episodes in the series.
Mary D. Pekowski
I've got these last episodes on tape and without wanting to ruin the ending, all I can say is that it's a must see.

The editorial review at the top is just plain wrong. He's obviously not a fan by the complete lack of knowledge of basic facts. Its like reading the last chapter of a book, and then trashing it cause he didn't understand what was going on. Even watching the previous 4 episodes would have given him more of an understanding of the series as a whole. To anyone that has seen the series already on TV this is a way to be able to go back to watch them in stunning visual quality whenever one wants. This is a very well done finish to one of the major story arc's, but unlike the other seasons it doesn't leave a mouth watering cliffhanger like the end of season 4 does... so simply sit back and enjoy having things almost wrapped up in this DVD.

Excuse me Mr.Charles Solomon?? Grotesque imagery, ethnic stereotyping?? What is your problem?? Where does it look like they're making fun of anyone? Everyone on that show is made up of different skin colors. Blue,green,purple,silver and lots of other shades of hair colors too!
I am African-American and I don't see what the problem is with the show at all! Are you really watching this stuff before you write an "editorial review" about it?
I just don't think you like ReBoot which is fine by me but you are supposed to write about thinks objectively and not be biased on insignificant details!! ReBoot is not racially stereotypical OK?
There are more shows on TV now with more graphic displays of violence on all the time especially the news! The only thing Cartoon Network censored was a bar scene which was stupid anyway because all they were doing was hanging around together having a nice time. Please look more closely at the shows before you put your 2 cents in.
I'm sure ABC and Disney feel like fools for letting go of such a wonderful thing now!! Hope to not see anymore comments from you anytime soon. Have a nice day!:)

This is a great series. But these are the last episodes of the third season and so if you have not seen the episodes before it, it might not make much sense. As for the animation, it is a major breakthrough for the time in which it was made. I know there is much better animation now, but this was made in 1997 with the best software around. Mainframe has always been ahead of other production companies and I can't wait to see what they come out with next. And Amazon, find someone who knows what they are talking about to do a review for this dvd. You might sell more of them. I definitely recommend buying this dvd, but if you are already a fan of this series, you know that.

I would gladly pay at least $50.00 a year for each year of this series, and probably more. C'mon, how about just releasing the entire series season by season as any classic TV show deserves.

Wow, what can I say? Brilliant! I always watched reboot when I was younger and never grew out of it. I've waited over 7 years to see these last 4 episodes, ever since UK television took it off the air for some stupid reason - they never showed the last episodes so I had to wait until now. It was worth it, the animation is as good as I remember it, even if some say it's a bit dated now that doesn't make it any less effective. The character development is great and so is the plot...and the humour is still there even this late in the series. If you ever loved watching reboot, you'll love this video.

I'm more than a little amused by the Amazon review for this disk. Apparently, Mr. Solomon has never watched any of the earlier seasons of ReBoot, and is therefore completely baffled by already introduced concepts of the show. While this isn't surprising, it's ludicrous for him to be doing the reviews, at least without doing some research first. Naturally, the third season of any series that includes arcing storylines is going to seem at least a little bit inexplicable to the begining viewer.

Literary critiques aside, volume four of the third season of ReBoot is perhaps the best set of episodes in the series. It begins with "Megaframe", where the series finally returns to our home base of Mainframe, and ends with (what else?) "End Prog", resolving the main conflicts of the season 3 storyline. A great many poignant and funny moments are packed into these four episodes, and the ending is one that still gives me chills every time I watch it. This DVD may be discontinued, but do whatever it takes to see it! Better yet, send letters to ADV, Anchor Bay, and/or MFE themselves asking for a complete box set of the first three seasons. Currently, no distribution company owns the rights to the DVD distribution, so any company could buy them. Let them know we'll buy them if they come!

ReBoot is unsurpassed. Later CGI series fell far short of this original and groundbreaking series. Bill Gates inaugerated ReBoot into the Smithsonian as the first CGI series, but it was much more than that. Great writing and wonderful charcters meant you cared about Enzo, Dot, Bob and the fate of Mainframe. ReBoot combined the heroic and humorous in an unusual and unique way. It remains a marvelous achievement and repays repeated viewing. When Disney bought ABC, ReBoot was one of the casualties, so the third season never aired in the US. That gave its Canadian creators more leeway to push the envelope, since the series didn't have to comply with network standards and practices boundaries. This resulted in an edgier, widely-praised third season, which finally aired on Cartoon Network. Now the entire third season is available on four DVDs. Own this piece of history and be part of the magnificent achievement that is ReBoot. Ask a million fans: ReBoot Reigns!
