Disk one has:
Song of the Petalars (This one is really a nice and touching episode).
Journey to the Tower of Omens.
The Duelist and the Drifter.
This really is a great reboot to an old classic show that I grew up with. Also what's cool the voice of the original Lion-O from the old series plays as Lion-O's father in the episodes Omens 1 & 2. Honestly if you love Thundercats---give this new show a shot.
And that is the set-up for this revamping.
First off, as someone who'd always found the original Snarf so vexing, I'm ecstatic that this new Snarf is rendered without speech. And I love the visual design on the new Wilykit and Wilykat and happy to see that they remain the same mercurial young tricksters. The early episodes take great pains to reintroduce each of the cast and how he or she fits into the new dynamics. Several of the core characters meet each other for the first time.Read more ›
This version is more of a reboot than a remake, but I like the direction this show is going so far. Lion-O is now a struggling prince trying to hold the team together, and he's got to grow up naturally as he learns lessons along the way. Out of the first eight eps, the two I consider the best are "Song of the Petalars," which had me in tears because little Emrick stole my heart; and "Legacy," where not only I learned about the Cats working WITH Mumm-Ra, but also seeing Mon*Star from "SilverHawks" and Mako from "TigerSharks" make cameos! Talk about paying homage to other toons!
The colors are amazing, the stories are fantastic, and I sincerely hope this series lasts for years to come.
I guess the only drawback is what a previous poster said...no extras. It would be better, like interviews with the voice actors (Will Friedle, the aforementioned Larry Kenney, etc.) and such. Oh, well, maybe if it gets the FULL season treatment, that could happen.
Which at the current Amazon listing price of 13.99 is about 1.75 a episode. The Animation and voice work for this series is really top notch. Its a very different third Earth from the Original Series, and yet stronger because of the clear fans of the original universe tweaking it in homage.

Surprisingly good for an American cartoon. Good beginning for the series. Makes you wish it was darker and more gritty. It's a shame this series never had a sequel.Published 10 months ago by JOnathan ryu

|Blu Ray version?||
I'll only buy this if it's released on Blu-ray in true season sets. None of this piecemeal volume by volume.
Hey Warner, take a look at your season sets for The Clone Wars on Blu-ray - that's how you should be releasing this new Thundercats show. It deserves that sort of treatment -... Read More
