1. First thing I noticed was the animation. It's incredibly more fluent than Masters of the Universe (Filmation's most famous show) while still preserving that Filmation style and look. Maybe it's because of this that the episodes are easier to watch now that I'm an adult. Try as I might, the only reason I sit through a He-Man episode is because of pure nostalgia only. There's only so many times you can see the same animation over and over.
2. Bravestarr actually hits the bad guys. We get to see "real" fight scenes between the characters. While He-Man only punches the screen and tosses the bad guys around, Bravestarr hits, kicks and shoots!!! the enemy. Yes, Bravestarr uses his gun on the bad guys, unlike He-Man who only uses his sword to transform.
3. Bravestarr gets the girl. The only time we ever see He-Man even a hug a girl was when he reunited with his long lost sister. And it only took him 120 episodes to do that. It takes Bravestarr only half way through the movie to KISS, not just hug, KISS the main love interest.
Now He-Man will always be my favorite, as it made more of an impact on me while I was groing up. But Bravestarr has got to be the best show on the Filmation library. Give it a chance. You won't be dissapointed.
Overall, it was worth what I paid and how can you not want 30-30 to watch your back?
If you loved the show you'll definitely going to love this movie! Also if you don't really remember the show but know you watched it as a kid this is a good place to start your walk on memory lane. You'll instantly get upto speed on everything and you woun't feel so lost when you start watching the episodes from Season One Vol. 1. As far as the best episodes I haven't even watched those since I bought the Season One Vol. 1. collection so I'm not going to go on about those. The other bonuses are definitely intersting and a nice extra!
I'm eager to watch the movie that came with this set, Bravestarr: The Legend. I do remember a couple of the episodes on this set as well, and after watching them, they are among those that seemed to impact more on things. My favorite is The Price, the episode about the drug known as Spin, with the ending that even had me drawing a quick breath. This episode definitely hit the hardest, and it was a worthy candidate to be added to this set.
