ReBoot complete series to DVD in 2011

Shout Factory has announced plans to issue the early CGI series ReBoot to DVD next year as a Complete Series set.

Although a few individual episodes/arcs had been issued to DVD a few years back, this is going to be the whole thing.

http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/ReB...e-Series/14499

I'm looking forward to this. Although it started out as something as a kiddie show, as it progressed the storylines got more complex and darker. I was particularly impressed when they devoted an entire season for a story arc that didn't even feature Bob or Dot Matrix, only Enzo and Andrea (and included great parodies of Star Trek and The Prisoner along the way).

I wonder if we can thank Tron 2 (and the inevitability of a Blu-Ray reissue of the original Tron) for ReBoot getting a reissue?

Wasn't there supposed to be a new Reboot project in development? I remember a teaser finding it's was onto the net about a year ago but nothing of substance since.

Re: ReBoot complete series to DVD in 2011

Yeah. There were a couple of new projects in development. The first was in a form of a web comic that completed the cliffhanger from "My Two Bobs" and then there was supposed to be an entirely new film trilogy. There was even a teaser trailer released a couple years ago but there has been zero progress on the project as far as I've been able to tell.

This is great news. I'm a huge "Reboot" fan.

Finally. I watched this show during its initial run on ABC and during repeats when it was shown during the Toonami segment on Cartoon Network.

The 2nd season finale was fantastic.

Oh man. This was my favourite show as a kid. Can't wait to watch the whole thing again. Had to download since ITV (HTV at the time) only showed up to the Pirate two parter in season three before pulling the show.

The end of season two and all of season three is my favorite season of the show.

Re: ReBoot complete series to DVD in 2011

^^Mine too. Especially the final arc of the third season in which they return to Mainframe and discover it conquered by Megabyte and fight to liberate it. The flashbacks depicting how Megabyte rose to power, the battle to re-take the Principal Office. When I was 12, I considered that to be the pinnacle of television. It's still within my top ten.

Though, I got to admit, I was a bit underwhelmed with the telemovies/fourth season. Of course, it's possible it's one of those things where my hopes were so high, I was setting myself up to be disappointed. However, they did seem self-indulgent and constantly pulling everything from the show's past felt like they wanted to show off how far the CGI had come since the early years. Still fun to watch though.

Same here - in fact I only saw anything past 3.3.1 two years ago when I remembered the show and Youtubed it. Absolute quality. To this day "The ABCs! They've turned on us!" "Treacherous dogs!" remains a favourite quote amongst my friends.

From the Power Rangers parody episode onwards the show was superb. Up there with Beast Wars for my favourite 90s shows.

Re: ReBoot complete series to DVD in 2011

Loved the first and last 4-ep S3 arcs, but I thought the middle ones were pretty lame, especially the Web episodes. Never bothered to Netflix S4. (And who's that new guy voicing Bob?!)

Oh, man: anyone remember the first season funhouse/evil clown ep? Now, that was some freaky s***!

Oh, and "High Code"... that was awesome... So many memories... can't wait! Also, here's hoping they include the footage from the PS1 game...

Now, if they'd just release seasons 3 and 4 of Early Edition and the last season of The Practice, I'd be all set!

Re: ReBoot complete series to DVD in 2011

I didn't mind "Daemon Rising" the first half of "season four" (YTV in Canada aired both Daemon Rising and My Two Bobs as separate TV movies) but felt that parts of "My Two Bobs" felt short and felt a bit cheated by the cliffhanger ending even though I understood it.

There is a reference to "Digital Distribution" which might mean downloads, so that could be it. Not the same as having a full-out DVD release, though.

How is Shout Factory for releases outside North America - or do they turn up?
