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.
Of course, I have only seen a couple of episodes, but I sense, from the reviews, that I will not be disappointed by the rest of the episodes. The original Thundercats was okay when I was a kid. I like this version best! I'm going to try to find Book 2, of this series, right after I write this review. As an Amazon Prime member this cost, what, a little over seven bucks with shipping? Geeze, what a steal!!!
This reminds me of my surprise when I bought the newer version of Masters of the Universe. I am impressed by that version for the very same reasons.

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 15 months ago by JOnathan ryu
