4.0 out of 5 stars Easier to scratch??? November 30, 2009
I'm going to be honest, I seemed to missed the big "DVDs-as-Frisbees" craze. Call me old fashioned, but my DVDs go from their case to the DVD Player and back to case, and that's the way I likes it. And I'm sure the "Real America" agrees with me. Double-sided DVDs are not any easier to scratch than a normal DVD, that's my experience.

But I guess if you are buying these for kids, the double-sided DVDs might be an issue. I've seen my niece scratch up The Little Mermaid with her carelessness. A competent adult can make double-sided DVDs last as long as normal DVDs. What are we supposed to do? Not buy our favorite programs because they were unfortunately released on double-sided DVDs? I gots to watch The Riches Season 2.

Allow me to explain the contents of this DVD re-release. This is a partial re-packaging of the original release of Superman the Animated Series. Originally, they were released in three 3-Disks sets. What they did here is transplant the first disk from those DVD sets, then the second and third disks are made into a double sided disk. And you can tell because they still have "Volume 1, Disk 1," "Volume 2, Disk 1," etc. on them. So it's a single-sided disk, a double-sided disk, single, double, single, double, and the seventh "Bonus" Disk.

The 7th "Bonus" Disk is disappointing. It features a few trailers for DCs other animated movies, which is quickly becoming their "go-to" material for padding out bonus content, (And for Star Wars: The Clone Wars. WTH?) and a new Featurette "The Despot Darkseid: A Villain Worthy of Superman." It's mildly entertaining, but at around 15 minutes, it's hardly a deal breaker. I wish they had spotlighted Superman's current events in the comics, like they did for Green Lantern with The Blackest Night.

When the critically-acclaimed "Batman - the Animated Series" premiered on Fox in the early 90's, it was obvious that the same production team would take a stab at DC fellow stablemate, Superman. "Superman - the Animated Series" ran on the WB from 1996-2000 and had the same top quality writing, animation, and use of top name acting talent as had its predecessor.

The series is especially notable for assembling some of the best "voices" for any animated series. Dana Delaney is great as Lois Lane while David Kaufman perfectly assays the role of Jimmy Olsen. Just like Kevin Conroy is the definite Batman/Bruce Wayne, appearing in five episodes of the show, Clancy Brown is perfection as Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor.

The last, but certainly not least of the main characters, is Superman/Clark Kent, voiced by Tim Daly. The former "Wings" star does a good job of bringing "Ole Blue" to life. However, it is the actor's turn as Bizarro in three installments that is a treat for the ears. It's hard to imagine that Daly voices both Superman and his not-too-bright Doppelganger. That is a testament to Daly's skills as an actor.

In addition to the main characters, recurring and guest villains are also brilliantly portrayed by the likes of Mike Farrell and real-life wife Shelley Fabares (Pa and Ma Kent), Malcolm McDowell (Metallo in 4 instalments), Brad Garrett (Bibbo and Lobo),Corey Burton (Braniac), Gilbert Gottfried (Mr. Mxyzptlk), Michael Dorn (Kalibak and John Steel), Ed Asner as the deliciously wicked Granny Goodness, and Michael Ironside as the despot Darkseid, just to cite a few.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected and remembered! June 5, 2010
Verified Purchase
I remember watching this show as a child and loving it, although not as much as the famous Batman series that allowed this series to come to fruition. I became a comic book fan a couple of years ago, and started to catch these episodes on Toon Disney. They seemed pretty low quality in terms of animation. However, I picked this up because I remembered that there were several episodes worth checking out...

I am happy to say that the animation quality has far exceeded my expectations. Toon Disney apparently edited this show in some way or another. These episodes are pretty solid with the exception of a few stinkers. As I recall, the same could be said about Batman. Although I wouldn't rate this as high as the Batman series, I'd put it in a close second. The voice acting is, quite frankly, inspiring at times. Tim Daly made a great Superman, Clancy Brown practically transformed Lex Luthor... I could go on and on, but I would highly recommend this purchase if you are a fan of DC or Superman at all.

There is some squabble about the packaging and double sided discs. If that's a turn off, you are unfortunately out of luck; no completely single sided packaging exists. I haven't experienced any problems at all. Just be careful! Not something to let your kids handle at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great value - double sided DVDs or not November 24, 2009
A lot of the reviewers on here are complaining about the double-sided DVDs that are used partially in this set. It may be an inconvenience, but it's not enough to warrant a one-star review, in my opinion.

Superman TAS was my favorite show growing up, and I hadn't purchased any of the other DVD sets yet, so having all the episodes in one set sounded pretty good to me. If you're a fan of the show, don't worry too much about the other reviews, chances are you're buying this for the content, not the presentation. You can read my full review on my website [...]

Batman Complete part 2: Should I worry?
I don't think anyone knows. But the Batman set originally appeared in fall 2008, and when that sold out, they made more for fall 2009. As long as it sells, I expect Warner will continue making more, even if it's just for the Christmas season.

Superman Complete series
When buying this new, it seems to me that the scuffs/scratches are made on the last of the double-sided disc, since it rubs against the bonus disc (that does not move since it is on the box instead of those moving "pages in a binder" style disc holders).

I bought this item new and sent... Read More
