Having now watched all the episodes on DVD I can say that the audio and video quality is not something you should be worried about when buying these Made On Demand sets. I am very uptight when it comes to the quality of the things I own and I can say that all the episodes were presented in the same, if not better than, quality they originally aired. My only issue as far as any of the Amazon Made On Demand sets is that being a purist I'd like the opening theme to play before every episode and not just the first one on each disc, but that's a very minor issue.
I personally had no issue playing the DVD-R type discs on any of my DVD player's or even on my Sony DVD Recorder. I have purchased several different Nickelodeon series (Doug, Hey Arnold & Rugrats) on Amazon 'MOD' sets now and had no issue with the picture or sound quality on any of them and they have all played fine on my DVD player's.Read more ›
For those who may not have seen the show, or the first season of it, the animation is MUCH rougher and shakier than in later seasons, but as always the writing is top-notch, and because of this the show appeals to all ages, not just the young kids it was intended for. I believe that other reviewers have already sufficiently covered which episodes are on this set, so I won't waste the time or space covering it again.
Now then, onto the DVDs:
This 3-disc set is packaged in a very generic, standard plastic DVD case. Nothing fancy, but it certainly gets the job done. Same basic story with the package art. It's very generic, but it does represent the series just fine so I really have no complaints about it. One VERY small problem I have with the art, though, is that, being the obsessive person that I am, I wish they had used the classic Rugrats logo rather than that slightly different new one (which has never been used in the actual show, only on products like books, toys, and DVDs).
The DVDs are made to order on demand by Amazon.com, and therefore are DVD-R formatted. I understand that some people have had trouble playing the discs in previous sets like this, but they all work just fine on all of the DVD players in my house.Read more ›
Honestly I was a little disappointed when I heard that the seasons wouldn't be released on regular DVD's, but instead DVD-R's. Nonetheless, the DVD's play well in most of my DVD players (including my laptop drive, which is a pleasant surprise considering the case says that the DVD's won't play in PC drives). There was one DVD player in my house that had trouble reading the disc and displaying picture (a Panasonic dual DVD-VHS player), but I don't use that one nearly as much, so I would not worry too much about not being able to play the DVD's.
The audio and video sounds about the same as it did when the series aired on Nickelodeon, and I didn't expect any more or less. It's a classic show, and (at least for the first season) the animation shows its age a little bit. Also, having watched most of the early seasons (1-5), I can't say this is my favorite season, but there are many episodes which I love, including "At the Movies", "Momma Trauma", and "Touchdown Tommy", and I like the rest of the episodes in this set even if I don't love them. However, the DVD's don't offer much else in the way of special content - you are getting the episodes and that's it (but that's all I really wanted anyway).
So should you buy this set? It depends on your situation.Read more ›
