Format: DVD
The title is misleading, I thought this was a re-make of the Black Stallion movie, but instead it consists of 5, approx half hours, episodes following the adventures of the Black and Alec as they race in France. They take place before they arrive in America, due to the lack of licence papers. The whole disc is very loosely based on the book, in fact only the character names come from the book by Farley, the rest is created by others. We are introduced to new character Nicole, a fiesty, opinuated young woman.
In Barn Burner, the tilte is self-explanatory, for Diamonds the Black and crew find themselves tangled up in a diamond heist. In Chateau Sauvage the Black is kidnapped by an eccentric wildlife park owner and in Killer Stallion the Black is drugged prior to a race which causes him to go out of control. Lastly, in a bonus episode called Machine Rider which takes place, I guess, between the first and second episodes and this one's about a jockey who deliberatly tries to sabutage the Black's performance.
All the episodes are humorous as well as exciting and the dvd is definately worth to purchase.

This film is clearly a spin off from the American TV series "the Adventures of the Black Stallion" and therefore as a non-viewer I found it slightly difficult to dicipher the relationships. However that said I must say that Richard Ian Cox is much better cast as Alec then Kelly Reno. Yet I found this film downplayed the Black a bit especially his big race and focused more on the problems of the main characters.
To the story. When Alec's close friend Nicole discovers her mother is severly ill she returns to France and Alec accompanies her. He then decides to race the Black over there against Henry's wishes and begins training for the major race the Prix de Chantilly. However, unbeknown to Alec he has enemies who are not above anything to prevent him racing and to make matters worse the Black is playing up and refuses to cooperate.

HASH(0x916029fc) out of 5 stars Adventures of the Black Stallion 12 Feb. 2003
By Hillary Mader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is not the orignal Black Stallion movie, but the series called the Adventures of the Black Stallion that aired back on the Family Channel back in the early 90's. The show was unfortunatly cancelled when the Family Channel was purchased by another TV company. It stars Mickey Rooney reprising his role from the movie and Richard Cox playing Alec Ramsay. It's 90 minutes long and in it, The Black is entered in the French race Prix de Chantilly, and Alec's friend Nicole (Marianne Filali) returns home to see her sick mother, while Alec and Henry deal with crooked gamblers and bad businessmen who try to fix the race. If you loved the Adventures of the Black Stallion, this DVD is for you!

HASH(0x91602c48) out of 5 stars This Black Stallion is not the 1979 Frances Ford Coppola ver 1 Mar. 2005
By Ronald W. Salters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I mistakenly purchased this DVD thinking it was the 1979 version by Frances Ford Coppola. I was very disappointed in this series of shorts of The Black Stallion produced for the Family Channel. This may good for children but for someone who was looking for the mystical and beautiful film that moved me in my childhood, it was an extremely poor imitation. What really irks me is the fact that nowhere does the product information explain that it is not the film of the same name done so well in 1979. I shoulda looked closer and I will next time. Just because its name is The Black Stallion based on the book by Walter Farley, starring Mickey Rooney does not make it the classic from 1979 produced by Frances Ford Coppola.

HASH(0x91602e88) out of 5 stars Not the movie 26 Mar. 2005
By Amy Perkins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I originally bought this DVD thinking that this was the movie starting with Alec Ramsay being saved by the Black. As I watched it I realized that it was a TV show and a poorly done one as well. The script is poorly written at best and it's almost a shame that Mickey Rooney accepted a contract. There are a total of about 4 episodes plus a bonus that seemed to be a bonus only because I couldn't determine where it fell in the timeline. Having read all of Walter Farley's books, I couldn't even tell which books the show was based off of. The Black was played by a Friesan Stallion, not even an Arabian, and was referred to as a Thoroughbred. Having been involved with horses almost all of my life, this was probably the most disturbing. The cinemetography was poor and I probably will not ever watch it again.

HASH(0x91604204) out of 5 stars Finale the series hits dvd 6 Mar. 2005
By Nephesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I was a large fan of both this TV series and the movies. I think that most people if they like horses will enjoy this series. I always felt like I was with Alec on his adventures, it was not only Alec who could ride the Black, but I could ride him too. I do think they titled dvd wrong though. It is no wonder many people got confused and thought it was the 1979 movie. It should have simple been titled The adventures of the black stallion season 2 episodes 1 -5 , or they should have put Richard Ian Cox's name along side Mickey Rooney.

HASH(0x91604420) out of 5 stars Really like! 3 Dec. 2012
By 1B2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Love the characters - grumbly horse trainer Mickey Rooney (who was also the trainer in National Velvet with young Elizabeth Taylor), jocky Alex and of course the beautiful Black stallion. Whiat's interesting besides the main story lines, is the fact that the story physically moves from one beautiful location to another, giving glimpses into places like rural France and New Zealand.
