5.0 out of 5 stars The Power Cosmic is Here !!! 2 July 2009
Verified Purchase
How long have we loyal fans had to wait for the release of the adventures of Norrin Radd, his servitude to the mightly Galactus, his exile when he stood against his master in the defence of the Earth and how his only goal now is to return to his planet and the woman he loves. This set has all 13 episodes of the first and sadly for us fans only season of this series. The animation is great, the storylines believable and let's face it, the surfer makes a great hero character ... a must for true fans !!!

3.0 out of 5 stars solid, delivers what you expect 17 Feb 2012
By Jon
Verified Purchase
Animation is alright, not fantastic but it satisfies. All stories are Extra-Terrestrial and it has a philosophical vibe or debt. In other words not only for the young audience. If you are a fan of the Silver Surfer you should get it, if you are just a little curious (like I was) it is still a treat.

It ends with a cliffhanger, but not in an annoying way. If it had to end (get canceled) this was an okay way to do it.

This DVD version reminds me of just like it was when I watched Silver Surfer many years ago. I thoroughly enjoyed watching these episodes again.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Marvel's Best 7 Nov 2012
By Theo TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I confess I am astonished by how many other reviewers consider this a mediocre showing. I personally consider it one of Marvel's best ever in the animated arena. Yes, they only made one season and it ended on a cliff-hanger, but that had precious little to do with the series itself. Apparently it rated rather well. The problem was never with the show, but with the company that made it. Unfortunately that went belly-up.

For the purists, it is true that this show isn't strictly in accordance with cannon. But then, what superhero cartoon is? Like most animated shows derived from comic books, this production re-imagines the universe on which it is based in accordance with its own needs. While it can't match the sheer intricacy and detail of the comic book universe with its decades of backstory, it does make good use of the time and space available. My only real issue with the show's departures from cannon is that for some reason its creators decided to make Thanos a worshipper of Chaos rather than of Death. I'm not sure if the worship of Death was considered a bit too strong for what was at least nominally a children's show, but from an adult perspective, I do consider that a mistake. A watering of the wine, as it were.

That one issue aside, the story can hold its own when compared to Marvel's comic book epics. I've always loved the way Marvel does "cosmic", and this show does not disappoint. It positively explodes with all the electrifying energy, godlike power, and inhuman solemnity and portent that makes all of Marvel's best cosmic epics what they are. When you're watching this show, you do buy into the idea that these are indeed cosmic beings whose deeds shape and destroy worlds, thence echo throughout their universe, and even perhaps throughout other universes as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Fans Or Nostalgia Buffs Only 14 Feb 2011
Verified Purchase
These 13 episodes, the complete first (and only) season, end abruptly, so don't expect any closure.

However, if you know the work of Kirby from the 60's and the personifications of the Universe that regularly appeared in lesser Marvel titles, then you'll enjoy watching the Silver Surfer series.

With Eternity, the Watcher, Galactus, Ego the Living Planet and many others appearing it's a blast from the past from the Silver Age of comics.

The storylines don't match the canonical Marvel history, and Earth doesn't feature much, but for Universe-wide mega-powered space opera, the Silver Surfer series is a treat.

If you're a fan of the Silver Surfer, or you remember the series when it appeared on TV, then these DVDs are a must buy.

However, if you're only vaguely interested, then avoid, as you only get half a story and the look of the series is distinctly odd.

5.0 out of 5 stars silver surfer - the complete series 28 Nov 2013

Excellent series, pity never completed beyond 13 episodes. Marvel needs to redo this series, artwork is great and so are storylines, except the final episode never finished story.
