Editorial Reviews:

ReBoot was the first computer animated network series, and these episodes from its third season (1994) reveal how quickly computer visual effects has advanced. The designs look decidedly passé, and the motion-capture animation is limited and uneven. Enzo, the hero of ReBoot, is an adolescent guardian-in-training, fighting to protect the cyberworld from the evil virus Megabyte. Enzo's older sister, Dot Matrix, serves as commander of the defense forces; they both miss Bob, the hunky Guardian who disappeared at the end of the second season. Enzo's duties involve assuming roles in different games with AndrAIa, the obligatory spunky girl. The scenarios include heavy-handed send-ups of Pixar films, Warner Bros. cartoons, and the stained-glass knight in Young Sherlock Holmes. The filmmakers try to infuse these sci-fi adventures with the appeal of anime, but the timing and direction aren't strong enough to generate that level of excitement. ReBoot is more interesting as an example of early computer visual effects than as entertainment for modern kids. Although it is rated "suitable for all ages," violence, including suggestions of torture, grotesque imagery, and ethnic stereotypes, are inappropriate for children under 10. (Episodes: "To Mend and Defend," "Between a Raccoon and a Hard Place," "Firewall," and "Game Over.") --Charles Solomon

Summary: very disapointing
Comment: While I'm a great fan of reboot, my second favorite show growing up (transformers was my first), this is outrageous, to charge this sort of price for four or five episodes, and they didn't even release season 1 or 2, I would gladly pay the price there asking if it was the full season, but this isn't worth it.

Summary: Finally! *celebrates*
Comment: I've wished for this to be released for AGES! (Still wishing for the first two groundbreaking seasons, though.)

I'm so excited! The DVD is just what I expected. The series itself is as good as I remembered. As the editor of 80sCartoons.net, I have seen a lot, and I mean a LOT, of cartoons after their time, and this one is JUST as good as the first time I saw it. I can't say that of many cartoons. Only a small handful. The characters, the character development, the storylines, the humor...first class. Edgy. FUN. Yes, that's the bottom line here. It's a FUN show to watch. Isn't that the point?

Comment: If you did a little research you would find out the the 4 Vols sold on amazon are vol 1-4 of seasonIII. It is one complete season. not random episodes from different seasons. I too would gladly like to see all the seasons. But come on WHAT DID YOU EXPECT FOR about 20 bucks A WHOLE SEASON GET REAL USE YOUR BRAIN THINK. Most series that sell as whole season sell for well over 50 bucks!
Your review is incorrect and made me do research before i decided to buy. Please find all the facts before posting incorrect reviews!

Now onto the review!
Reboot is great! These 4 vols of season III are wonderful we could only hope that the first 2 seasons come out sometime in the future! Season IV is slated for later this year!

Summary: I Want Season One
Comment: I am a HUGE Reboot fan. It was a landbreaking series in digital animation. The characters were all well developed and the stories were well written. I was sad to see it get canceled and only recently learned that it had gone on to cable t.v. So I jumped at the chance to buy the entire series. I was so excited! I am sooooo disappointed that Volume One is NOT Season One. It is difficult for me to share it with others, as they have no background. Some of it is hard for me to understand too, since Bob was alive and kicking when I last saw the show.

For all the fans of this awesome series -- I ask the producers to please release Seasons 1 & 2, so our collections will be complete. This is animation history.

Summary: ReBoot for life!
Comment: The editor of this review is clearly an angry old man with no appreciation for a fun, exciting cartoon. These take place at the beginning of season three, after the web has invaded mainframe. The James Bond-style of the Firewall opening is great, as is the episode itself. "Game Over" is the definately one of the best pre-net episodes in the series. The only thing that upsets me is that there is no "volume 0" with the episodes for season one ("Opening Sequence", "Racing the Clock", "Medusa Bug", "The TIFF", and "Talent Night") or season two ("Infected", "Painted Windows", "AndrAI", "Nullzilla", "Gigabyte", "Trust No One", and "Web World Wars"). However, this DVD gets my thumbs up!
