Editorial Reviews

Includes the First 22 Episodes as They Were Meant to Be Seen!

When an attempt on Dr. Alec Holland's life leaves him consumed by deadly chemicals and fire, the swamps of Louisiana transform him into a superhuman creature hell-bent on ridding the swamp--and the world--of the evil that men do, beginning with his arch nemesis, Dr. Anton Arcane, the mad scientist responsible for Holland's monstrous new incarnation as Swamp Thing.

Based on the legendary DC Comics character and starring Dick Durock (reprising his title role from the popular Swamp Thing feature films), Mark Lindsay Chapman, Carrell Myers and featuring Kari Wuhrer (Sliders), Swamp Thing: The Series follows the tortured creature that was once a man and his quest to regain his humanity, purging the swamp of evildoers along the way.

BONUS FEATURE
Exclusive interviews with Swamp Thing co-creator Len Wein and actor Dick Durock

All 22 episodes are spread out over four single sided discs with great artwork and packaging.
The Critic
Sure, he's a little rubbery and jiggling in some places but ol' swampy looks like the real deal, and that look is very faithful to the comic book.
R. Long
I guess it is acceptable for the younger viewers but I got a little bored watching it and so did not finish it.

I had totally forgotten about this great tv series. Its more like the comics than the films but has the same guy playing swamp thing. The make up effects are just as good as the movie and since they are so many episodes you really get to explore the character in a way the movie never did. Highly recommended for any super hero / comic fans. Too bad this was on in the early 90's, it probably would have been a big hit now.

Well ive been wanting this one to come out for a long time. In high school this was one of my fave series on tv. It was a saturday night ritual along with several other shows that me and mine watched durring its run in the ninties..
Tis awsome that Alec and his buddies finally made it to dvd. The quality is good.. the transfer seems really nice and there are come color corrections to it that i never noticed on my lousy tv and on broadcast tv. Well I hope you all like it as much as I do.. Only two small gripes.. 1) lack of specail featuers(though the Dick Durrock interview was nice) and 2) how bloody long do we have to wait for the second half!!?
laters!

After a campy but enjoyable first film directed by Wes Craven, and an ungodly bad sequel, Swamp Thing got himself his own live action TV series (a short-lived cartoon would follow as well), with none other than longtime stunt man Dick Durock reprising his role from the films as the tortured, muck monster. First off, it should be noted that Swamp Thing was quite low budget, but for its time, the show somehow managed to pretty much work for what it was. However, what really hurt the show was the schizophrenic writing, which would focus on Swamp Thing one minute, and then treat him as a back seat, supporting character the next. As a whole, the show was a mixed bag, yet at the same time, it managed to be pretty enjoyable. The supporting cast, which included Mark Lindsay Chapman as Swampy's old nemesis Dr. Anton Arcane, Carrell Myers as the friendly Tressa, and a young Kari Wuhrer who briefly appears as Abigail. If you enjoyed the show when it originally aired, this DVD set is worth picking up, and if you're an old fan of the DC character, this may be worth a look, although those fans might feel better off sticking with the classic comics by Alan Moore instead.

This is great to see on dvd and watch again. But don't be fooled. The episodes are out of order according to my list on the dvd cover and the list on IMDB.

And Vol. 2 still has some episodes missing and out of order. Again according to the list on IMDB, the air dates for the episode are out of order and missing.

There are supposed to be 72 episodes, the 2 vol set only has 33.
The list shows HALF the 3rd season episodes are missing.

Great to watch again, but not worth the money as they screwed up the episodes and left over 1/2 out of the set.

Fans of the "Swamp Thing" have 22 reasons to Shout! Based on the DC comic book character, the "Swamp Thing" made his debut in 1990 for the first time on television following the two movies from the 80's. For the first time ever fans can see all 22 episodes comprising of seasons one & two the way they were meant to be seen, in order. When the show was originally broadcast on the television the episodes were shown out of order making the story hard to follow at times.

Dr. Anton Arcane is looking for a secret elixir; some would call it the fountain of youth. Through his research Dr. Alec Holland believes he has created a new chemical composition and its value could be immeasurable to the world. After being immersed with chemicals and set ablaze Dr. Alec Holland's badly burned body is thrown into the Louisiana swamp by the ruthless Dr. Arcane. After some time in the swamp Alec's body has begun to regenerate itself and it has now mutated into some form of plant & swamp creature. No longer human the "Swamp Thing" sets out to destroy the person responsible for causing his mutation. Welcome to the "Swamp Thing" seasons one & two on DVD.

This half hour show wasn't always the best. Some stories were better than others and the show was definitely campy entertainment, but the swamp thing creature was well done and Dick Durock was good in reprising his role. This four disc set from Shout Factory is a must for any fan of the show. All 22 episodes are spread out over four single sided discs with great artwork and packaging. The video transfer in my opinion is excellent and the sound is crisp and clean. I have really enjoyed watching the first 22 episodes in order and gained a new appreciation for this show.

From Comic (Swamp Thing Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing) to movies ((Swamp Thing) and now TV screen the Swamp Thing had a run like no other DC character other than Superman or Bstman. His translation to TV was good and lasted three seasons. Remarkable for a NON MAJOR DC hero

The adventures of a man-turned-muck monster. Swamp Thing was once a man named Alec Holland, but after being caught on fire, doused with strange chemicals, and dumped into the Louisiana swamps by the evil Dr. Anton Arcane, Alec's body mutated. No longer is he human, or even an animal. His body is made from the muck and plants of the swamp. He's super strong and can make plants do his bidding. Good thing he's on our side

This muck monster with a heart owes a debt to Frankenstein legend. Mark Chapman (not a relation to John Lennon's killer) plays the Thing's foil, Dr Arcane, a mad doctor who is doing expierements on mutations.

The make up other than Swamp Thing costume was not always the greatest. For example, the Episode where Paul Mark Richman was man/falcon looked slightly cheesy, but it did seem to convey it..similar to some of the monsters from the 70s-80s Dr Who

Dick Durrock plays the Thing with a heart. His origins were unexplained but in bits and pieces through the shows run, but it worked and made this a hit

Now on DVD, you can relive the episodes. The episodes were tight without major sub plots and major character devices.
