Nostalgia from the eighties.
on 15 March 2004
You always seem to remember programmes from your childhood as something brilliant. Although in reality, you discover that they were actually really rubbish.
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.
