These are the first thirteen episodes of the series run and, while "Questworld" is cool, they spend a vast majority of the first few episodes saving the environment in the "real" world rather than heading for Questworld and exercising the CGI animation that was supposed to make this series so cutting-edge. ("Realm of the Condor" and "Manhattan Maneater" standout as pretty hokey. In fact, I half-expected the Quest team to suddenly summon "Captain Planet" at some point).
Anyway, that's not even the worst part of these "early" episodes. You may recall Roger "Race" Bannon, the I1 agent hired out to help out Dr. Quest and basically serve as his son's body guard, as a rather stoic tough guy from Illinois. Now, all of a sudden, THIS "Race" talks like a reject from Cajun Country. I half-expected him to pack a deck of exploding playing cards for no reason other than to complete the illusion (...scratch that; that would actually be awesome). Have no worries; come Season 2, Race would mysteriously sound like his former self again.
Okay; so why even bother with three stars? Because I know what this show BECAME around Season 2 where most of my favorite episodes can be found. That and, even in the early episodes, it's clear that Jonny and Hadji are done always being the ones to get into trouble and expect Race and Doctor Quest to bail them out. No; in THIS go around, Jonny, Hadji, and Race's daughter, Jessie, actually SOLVE many of the adventures.
If you're on the lookout for the return of Dr. Quest's nemesis, Dr. Zin, I don't think he returns until Season 2. In THIS volume, look to be introduced to such repeat adversaries as Jeremiah Surd and Ezekial Rage.
If you are new to the series or only familiar with the originals, this is a good update. Johnny Quest is great because he is an attainable hero. Most of the adventures are realistic enough that younger kids will find it easy to identify with him. More so, the fact that the kids and adults in the show team up to find solutions to tough problems makes this a good example. The show can be violent at times and there is gun play, but non-violence tends to win out and the adults always serve as the voice of reason when it comes to safety. The CGI may be a bit laughable by today's standards, but I just found that added to the nostalgia.
The only downside is that this isn't the entire first season, so keep that in mind when purchasing. It still has plenty of episodes and thus I thought it was well worth the money.
