A pleasant surprise here then, because SuperTed is very good. Admittedly, it isn't as good as I remember, but there are memories to be had. That is all that is here, though. Children of the current generation may find the voice acting and unlikely stories to be a little tedious. But for those of you with fond memories, you'll find a few gems here.
Whilst it's nice to go through the episodes again, some things are immediately noticeable. There's only 7 episodes which accumulates to around an hour of viewing. It would have been nice to have all the episodes made on one disc rather than a best of. The price is cheap, but I would be willing to pay more if there was an increase in the number of episodes. No extras, promos or nostalgic documentaries, but you can't expect too much. Subtitles would have been nice, though.
To conclude; it's a good DVD, and at the price if you like the show then you should make the purchase. But it would have been much improved with a couple of extra episodes.
I mean, how could this fail? It's a kids fantasy!
The truth is that really this is a load of rubbish, with the thhinest of story lines ever. But if you are like me, it's still a great laugh. And you will enjoy it for totally the opposite reasons you liked it as a kid. It really is one of those things that is imbedded into your heart, it doesn't matter that it's actually rubbish.
So go on buy this, and have a laugh at yourself as I kid.
Most amusing of all is Superted's miraculously accurate foresight. No matter what the situation, Superted can't help but feel that something just isn't quite right. Perhaps he should see a doctor about his paranoia. What's more, no matter what kind of evil Superted and Spotty encounter, it's always assumed that Texas Pete is responsible. Sadly, he makes for a rather incompetent supervillain.
If you grew up in the 1980s, this is worth the price just to wallow in obsessive nostagia. Otherwise, give it a miss and check out much more amusing shows from the same era such as Rainbow and Button Moon.
