The DVD's cover and the back of the DVDs itself make a very expensive impression. Each season includes 3 DVDs. I bought all seasons and the first two DVDs of each season had scratches. These haven't been a problem up to now, but I think for 20 USD scratches should be excluded.....
The quality of the episodes itself is good. The DVD menu consists out of and <CHOOSE EPISODE> or something like that. So it isn't very easy to find out which are episodes and which are EXTRAS, but I think this isn't really a problem.
All in all I think it's completly worthy to buy these DVDs because these are only minor problems and the content itself is too good to miss it. I hope they will produce a fourth season of this amazing cartoon.
Well, our Teenage-Robot Diaspora has been quenched after all these years; at long last, all three seasons are available on DVD. Each episode is in the most pristine quality; however, there are NO set-up options or bonus features. Quite a pity, really; I would have loved to see interviews with Rob Renzetti or the other magic-makers concerning the making of the show, as well as each one's opinion on the characters. Still, it's a minuscule matter when we have the show itself after so long.
For what it's worth, I purchased this, the Season 2 set, first. I'd already paid for a few of the Season 1 episodes when it came out on Amazon Instant Video, you see. If you've already read my review there, you probably know I'm a big fan of the show myself, though I didn't find out about it until about 2007.
This show is a gem, and a most unique one- it is woven with fun, witty humor in contrast to Nick's other shows, most of which are loaded with gross-out jokes; the story arc of each episode is dynamic, engaging, comes full-circle as a proper story should, and holds noteworthy morals without coming off as preachy; each character is her or his own memorable being; the art style is easy on the eyes, and give the world an unmistakable look all its own; All these assets and much, much more systematically work together to bring out the best in each other, resulting in all the richer of an experience.
I admit that my prattling here is quite subjective; if you've not already watched the show, but would like to try it out, please don't go in on my word. Instead, go in with a curious, open mind and allow the show to grow on you, if it will. I'd hate to cause disappointment in future viewers.
So in closing, it's a great collection; each episode is clear as crystal; a lack of bonus features is a bit of a downer, but a very light one to be sure. I recommend this show to anyone looking for an experience, not just a gag-fest; however, it's your call.
Amazon, thank you for this!
