Format: DVD
Mind you, I rated one star not for the show itself, but for this DVD and the few others that were released. These DVDs are missing a few minutes, often the teasers before the theme song comes on. This particular DVD is region 2, so buyer beware. I don't understand the need for regions, and was only able to play it on my computer (and it was also missing a few minutes of the episodes due to bad editing). Why is Amazon.com selling DVDs that weren't even designed to play on US DVD players?

I am also befuddled at the lack of a complete season or series set of this wonderful series. It would be so awesome if a series boxed set was released, with each and every minute of the show accounted for, and the Ask Jackie bits as well. I'm not sure why the quality of these DVDs are so poor, or why only a few were ever released.

I have owned the Jackie Chan DVD series for years. I am always on the lookout for releases of more episodes because this is a high-quality series. I watched this when it was on TV (even before I had kids). Now that I have my own daughter (named Jade!), I share it with her. She gets bored of Dora, SBSP, etc, but never tires watching "Jackie Chan Adventures". It's wholesome, family entertainment that exposes children to the beautiful Asian culture, which is not often available.

I highly recommend this DVD!

I would like to see more seasons of Jackie Chan Adventures. The DVD of the first season is great, but I would like to see more.

Thanks.

This show is one of my favorites. The humor is great, the action is great, and the story is great. If you get a chance to watch this on television, do so. However, I have two gripes with this amazon on-demand product:

1) technically, the first season is only 13 episodes long HOWEVER three episodes which aired in season 2 belong in season 1.
SNAKE HUNT from season 2 actually takes place before ENTER THE VIPER in season 1. (snake hunt shows how the snake talisman ends up in the museum in the first place which is how enter the viper begins)
THROUGH THE RABBIT HOLE from season 2 needs to be watched after SHELL GAME from season 1. (Jade takes the newly acquired rabbit talisman to school in hopes of showing off)
THE WARRIOR INCARNATE from season 2 should be watched after THE ROCK from season 1 (They use the rat talisman to bring a statue to life)

missing these episodes doesn't cause the first season to fall apart, but they are certainly out of place at the end of season 2

2) the quality of these episodes (judging solely on the free preview that is provided) is atrocious. blocky artifacts, aliasing...pitiful. this would kind of take away from the show because i would be distracted by the bad quality while watching the show. they need to redo these encodings and give this show some more justice.

Someone has to say it, but it is much less impressive to see an animated character do the stunts that you see Jackie Chan doing in his movies. Just because real world Jackie Chan does things that seem like they could only be done by a CGI character doesn’t mean that it is just as cool to see an animated character do the things that Mr Chan does.

Despite this minor point, Jackie Chan Adventures is an excellent cartoon. It is child friendly and is suitable for mindless entertainment for those of us that are young at heart.

I really enjoyed the sections at the end of each show where Mr Chan answered a question from a viewer. I’m certain these are all made up by writers and will have less appeal over time, but it is nice to see Mr Chan try to be a role model for his viewers.

Hopefully, Mr Chan will make lots of money off of these shows as time goes by. He has done far too many dangerous stunts over the years and he probably needs the revenue stream to pay his medical bills!

These should be about 22 minutes long, not 20! These recordings have been SPED UP! I guess that's better then being cut but it's still NOT what I PAYED for. If this was a DVD I'd return it! Save your money.

Frankly I would expect this from a pirated copy off e-bay but not from Amazon. Full price for low quality hack jobs you can't even really save on disc?

It's in-excusable!

Check the run time before you buy anything on "instant-video". I know I will be now.

This is the conclusion to the series finale, and wow, what a finale it is! Shendu is finally freed from his stone form, and can now wreak his vengeance upon the world! Lots of things happen, but part of it is a great fight between Shendu and Jackie once the Chan obtains a spell that lets him grab talismans from Shendu's living flesh. If you liked the episodes so far, you're definitely in for a treat!

This episode is the first part of a two-episode season finale. How the Tiger Talismam ended up in pie, who knows - but the opening scene at the pie-eating contest is hilarious when Tohru shows up, grabs two seats, and sits down for pie.

The Tiger has an interesting power, splitting up Jackie into two, one light and one dark like the forces of Yin and Yang. As this is nearly the end of the season, you can bet something bad happens, and it does. A great opening for a season finale!
