The dvds have animated menus sporting a mechanical theme -- sliding panels, rotating gears, HUD cockpit graphics, and a silhouetted robotic armature which highlights any menu selections. The series' intro song plays over the main menu, while unrelated commercial music is used for other parts of the discs, such as during the gallery bonus feature -- electronica pop, presumably in keeping with the robotic theme, advertised as "I, Computer" by a band called RadioRadio who are seemingly hoping to be confused with "OK Computer" by Radiohead.
The contained extras are spread over both discs:
1a. An extensive image gallery presenting character and vehicle design sheets for the entire series, including a large assortment of incidental characters like generic cowboy villains and New Frontier townsfolk.
1b. A few commercials for a 1987 "Saber Rider sweepstakes" mail-in contest (from which the original contest mailing info has been blanked out).
2. Character profiles (heroes and Ramrod only) with descriptive text, each played to their particular leitmotif music from the soundtrack CD (which mostly motivates me to go purchase the CD since these sample tracks sound absolutely great). Strangely, the profile included for Saber Rider is the only one written in past tense, making it read like an obituary: "He was a young man...Read more ›
In the late 21st Century (or early 22nd Century), humankind has reached the stars --- Many outposts and settlements have been made for several planets, and the modern space-age has merged with the legacy of Old West --- There are villans, outlaws, bounty hunters...and sheriffs --- The Star Sheriffs are the special operatives of Cavalry Command, Earth's law enforcement and defense patrol out in space, and along the New Frontier --- They are also ambassadors of good will to other planets in space --- But the main assignment of the Star Sheriffs is to protect the Galaxy from the growing threat of the Outriders.Read more ›
Now on the Dvd itself. Box art and DVD art are nothing spectacular. Menus are some what cool. I havent checked out the extras in Disc One. Disc two has the main (hero) character profiles and their theme music. Kind of one of those things well we need an Extra lets throw that in would be quick and easy. There are some minor glitches in the episodes. These include minor color and one point minor patches. Also in one episode the audio sync is so out of whack its almost hilarious. It some hows get out of sync when there is a very minor hiccup on that episode. Still these very minor glitches and shouldn't distract you from viewing or purchasing this set. Like all Tv shows there are so-so episodes, mediocre and good episodes. I recommend you purchasing this 2 Disc Set and I am looking forward to the second installment. Head 'em up, move 'em out...Thanks VCI for making this one.
