5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Series May 7, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a blast from the past from 25 years ago--I remember it very fondly! Phineas Bogg is a Voyager--a person who is supposed to travel through time and give history a push from time to time so that the proper things take place. The machine that he uses malfunctions a lot, he doesn't have a lot of knowledege about history, and he accidentally ends up in the bedroom of a boy named Jeffrey Jones in 1982, an orphan who knows a lot about history. He ends up traveling with Bogg, going from one adventure to the next. Not as heavy handed and preachy as Quantum Leap (which I loved, too)--a fun series, great family entertainment, kids should like it.

One thing I remember is that whenever Meeno and Jon-Erik did interviews, they always spoke as if they were an equal team. Jon-Erik never spoke of Meeno as just a kid. On screen, they had a very nice relationship. The kid's cute, the guy's hunky, and the adventures are fun.

Generally in each episode, the voyagers drop into one scenario, leave at the first commercial break to another, solve the second problem, then take knowledge from that second scenario back to the first to solve the initial problem.

4.0 out of 5 stars DVD Transfer is Very Good, but no Bonus Features July 24, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just the straight facts about the DVD:
1. Five episodes per disc. Four discs = all 20 original episodes.
2. Although the footage shows a dash of age with a some graininess, it is much much more crisp than any VHS / Beta recording from back in the day. (To give you an idea -- you can freeze frame and read the months and numbers on the omni!) Plus, the colors look pretty good for an 80s show that sat in the archives.
3. Sound is quality is good, especially for what was originally recorded in mono -- no hiss or the like.
4. One reviewer on here complained that the commercial breaks were badly edited out. That is untrue. The DVD transfer is clearly sourced from the original recordings. It is simply a stylistic feature of many older shows that commercial breaks were made to be very obvious; such breaks seem clunky to our eyes because they lack perfect continuity. (I suspect that that was to allow "leg room" for local commercials to be cued in / synced by an engineer in a local station room.)
For an excellent lowdown on the whole set with screencaps and pics of the discs, visit the site "ultimatedisney" and search for Voyagers. The site's review links back to Amazon's page here, so fear not about heading there for more info.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very popular in Brazil May 9, 2007
Format:DVD
One may think that a series so short-lived (20 episodes only) could not be famous outside U.S.
Well, here in Brazil, back in 1983, 1984, me and my friends used to watch every single episode available. Of course, at that time, we saw it dubbed in portuguese (our language here), with TV commercials and with an image of poor quality (65% of what it would be considered perfect). It was the time when there was no cable TV.
So, I'm very anxious now to buy this DVD, and finally see all episodes with perfect image and sound. Of course, internet over the years could present the episodes, but the image was never that good.
Now I want to own the official set, with all 20 chronologic episodes.
Only the cover of the DVD set is ugly. A better art could be presented.
And let's hope the studio doesn't change any music, as it seems to be usual these days.
Hey! I can't forget to mention Shannen Doherty (with, I suppose, 11 or 12 years old) on the witch hunt episode ("Agents of Satan")! I adore this woman, and it was a complete surprise to find her here. (she plays a small, but crucial-to-the-plot role)

4.0 out of 5 stars Voyagers on DVD! Somewhere an OMNI has gone GREEN September 29, 2007
Format:DVD
The show we fondly remember with Meeno Peluce as Jeff the "smart-kid" who listened in school and the well-intentioned but historically inept Bogg played by the late Jon-Erik Hexum. Jeff serves as their only guide through time, fixing history. Much like the "Magic Tree House" series serves today as an elementary students overview of pop history, Voyagers! is flashing or particularly clever, but it remains surprisingly "timely" in the family-sci-fi genre. The music may be as over-the-top as some of the dialogue, at times formulaic, over all, still a great show.

We've got a green light, kids!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fond Memories August 18, 2007
Format:DVD
I was in 8th grade when this show aired it's one season. The main reason I remember for it being cancelled back then was because it's timeslot on Sunday opposite 60 Minutes. Also, this show was the inspiration for the much more successful Quantum Leap.

One thing I really liked about the series in retrospect was the different alternate history scenarios. 1890: No telephone, so Eisenhower's mother couldn't call the doctor for help delivering Dwight David. Enter the Voyagers who travel 15 years into the past to give A. G. Bell and Watson a push. That push happened to be in regard to Bell's love life. 1927, New York: No Yankee Stadium because Babe Ruth never switched from pitching to hitting and retired in 1922. So the Voyagers have to go back to 1919 and convince Babe that he needs to give up pitching and start his hitting career. The way they do it is unique and entertaining(this was the episode that Cleopatra beleived that the power of Bogg's kiss brought her forward in time).

If those scenarios weren't enough to get the casual viewer interested, I don't know what will. The characters made this show not only quality, but special. Also, being the age I was, I wasn't always around to watch this show, so I saw some of these episodes for the 1st time this past week, and I was not disappointed.

And I agree with the other reviewer here that suggested an updated version of the series. With a big trend toward supernatural and sci-fi based TV going on right now, this would be a perfect addition if it was done right.

I was disappointed in the lack of special features, but that didn't take away from my enjoyment at watching the series again.

I also feel compelled to mention that Jon-Erik Hexum's death was an accident, not suicide.

Second Language Track?
Por desgracia no hay audio en español, yo solía ver el show con mi mamá cuando era niña, ella esta muy triste porque no podrá disfrutarlo conmigo. Yo soy la única en mi familia que habla inglés y tendré que verlo sola. Esto es una lástima y una gran falla.

Jon is the guy that I wanted to grow up looking like. That show had more than it's fair share of beautiful women! You say that you don't remember much of the show? Get the set! His death shattered me growing up. The scenes where Jeff is crying make me want to start blubbering too!
