I was just a kid when the theatrical "Spawn" movie came out, but even then I could tell that the film just didn't live up to the idea; it was all popcorn explosions and CGI demons, devoid of substance. A few years later, towards the end of high school, I came across the prior boxset release of this show. Knowing it was well-reviewed, I decided to give it a try.

"Todd McFarlane's Spawn" is the opposite of the theatrical film, delving deeply into the psychology of this Hellspawn and his struggle between damnation and redemption. The writing is subversive, alternately witty and utterly creepy; the animation is fluid and richly detailed; the voice-acting superb, with Keith David's Spawn and John Rafter Lee's Jason Wynn as the clear highlights of the cast. Whether you're into comics, fantasy, film noir, or even simply well-written stories, I would recommend giving this show a watch.

And now it's even better on this anniversary box set. In the original release, each season of the show was edited together to form one two-and-a-half hour long movie; this would be daunting under normal circumstances, but for a show this bleak it's quite an achievement to get through. Even worse, the films were presented on both sides of a "flipper" disc, increasing the danger of scratches. Fortunately, this anniversary set presents all 3 seasons broken up into their individual episodes on a one-sided dual-layered disc, making for a much more palatable viewing experience (die-hards need not fear, however -- there's still a "play all" option on the menu). The visuals are improved with truer blacks and more vibrant colors, and the audio has been upgraded to 5.1 surround from Dolby stereo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome animated series! December 19, 2007
Format:DVD
This is HBO's groundbreaking animated series for adults that became an instant cult fave among fans of adult animation and fans of the landmark comic book series which was created by Todd Mcfarlane. The series dealed with a former soldier named Al Simmons (Voiced by Keith David) who was killed in the line of military duty was sent to hell, he made a deal with a devil named Malebolgia to get back on Earth so he can see his love Wanda again but only if he joins with Maelbolgia's army if he sends souls to hell so that the battle between Heaven and Hell may start. He is sent five years later only to find himself as a burned man with strange magical clothes and a shroud made from necroplasm, he is called Spawn and wonders through the streets of New York to find out that the love of his love is married to his former best friend Terry Fitzgerald as they have a child together and that Al Simmons has been dead for 5 years as right now the battle between good and evil will start.

A unique adult animated fantasy-horror-action series with excellent animation especially around the second and third seasons with some excellent voice acting by John Dystrat ("The Thing"), Ming Na Wen, John Rafter Lee ("Aeon Flux The Series" and "Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust"), Ronny Cox, James Hong, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Forster, Eric Roberts, and Kurtwood Smith ("Robocop"). This is truly one animated show not for kids due to extreme bloody violence, torture, nudity, sex, foul language and extreme darkness abound all wrapped up in this extremely faithful to the excellent comics series thanks to the magic of Spawn creator Todd Mcfarlane and HBO animation with MadHouse animation.

This 4-Disc special edition collection set contains all three seasons on 3-discs with cool extras like audio commentaries, character profiles, interviews and 3 featurettes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series May 31, 2007
By msjr68
Format:DVD
I loved when this Series when it was on HBO for 3 series but then it was cancelled, and that was a shame right in the middle of the storyline, I was hoping that Todd Mcfarlane would've finished this series with a straight to DVD release but it never happened. It was a Great show the Animation was topic notch. Again hopefully one day they'll continue this series from where it left off.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favs! March 28, 2012
By Amanda
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have always been a fan of comic books and cartoons and this made me giddy. I never got to watch its original airing on HBO and i bought a previous box set in the past which was destroyed. I have nothing but good things to say about the show. However I am disappointed that it ended so suddenly. As for the product itself the box is kinda nice, but getting the dvds out of the case is really really difficult PLEASE BE CAREFUL! Whoever designed the clipping device that keeps the dvds in place should be fired. Other than that I highly reccomend this series to anyone and everyone who loves a dark story, spawn, Todd Mcfarlane heck who ever loves great animation!

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless!!! January 6, 2008
By Bob
Format:DVD
Anyone who's a spawn fan, a comic book fan, or just a viewer looking for a mature animated series, rest assured because you can't go wrong with Todd McFarlane's Spawn. Why is this set flawless, well let's see you've got the steel case, 4 discs, all 18 episodes, the extras, and of course the great series itself for less than 30 bucks. Just the series itself is worth it for it's awesome story, flawless animation, good voice acting, dialogue, etc. Ok, so you think I'm making this sound to good to be true, well ok yes McFarlane didn't finish the series, but hey it's worth it while it lasts and Spawn like most comic book characters, is ongoing. To close this up I ask you to trust this reviewer, get Spawn, and enjoy it because trust me, this ain't your saturday morning garbage.

YES JUST SOME MINOR UPGRADE LIKE SOUND AND PICTURE QUALITY AND OTHER EXTRAS,BUT OTHER THAN THAT ITS THE SAME NOTHING NEW AND TODD NEEDS TO FINISH THE SERIES.

are the episodes separate on the special edition dvd or are they edited...
They are separate. I'm only on the 3rd episode so far & each one has started with Todd McFarlane's intro. I could post again about this after watching more of the eps but, so far, they are separated.
