This 'Dinotopia: The series' has a more jocular mood with the old character's presented in a more likeable way than the original moody and angry or pious (bordering on pompous in the Mayor's case) tone of the original. However I preferred the original 'Dinotopia's darker style, and missed classy Brit's Katie Carr and Jim Carter as the Dinotopians and Wentworth Miller and Tyron Leitso as the believable in-fighting American step-brother's, David and Karl Scott, coping with their sudden change of lifestyle and recent loss of their father. I also really missed Lee Evans as dinosaur Zippo's voice, Terry Jone's as the messenger's birds voice, and David Thewlis as hustler Cyrus Crabb. In fact none of the cast from 'Dinotopia' appear in this set 'Dinotopia: The series'. However I do like the fact that these 'Dinotopia: The Series' DVDs have all the episodes listed seperately so that the cliffhanger, end music and titles remain, greatly helping to set the pace. I felt the merging of the original mini-series 'Dinotopia' into a single very long film on DVD was less succesful than keeping the episodes seperate as screened - which also allows an episode before bed-time for the kids.
In this DVD set 'Dinotopia: The Series', Erik von Detten plays Karl Scott, Shiloh Strong plays David Scott and Michael Brandon plays Frank Scott, their dad. The 'unknown' new cast of this spin-off series make a good go of it though, but I do find the change of mood and cast very annoying. I wish they had just bought in completely new character's with this new cast and ignored the previous mini-series. But of course any Dinotopia is better than nothing. Other than the whinges above, this is a very fun series, less serious and Dino-preaching than the original and with more of the Pirate's of the Caribbean feel (as it now has pirates). It is therefore probably well suited to older pre-teens and young teenagers (probably boys mainly). Once we got going, we did all enjoy this series on DVD, particularly as on TV we kept missing vital episodes. This 3 DVD set has all 13 episodes listed separately plus a few 'featurettes' on making Dinotopia etc. So overall, highly recommended for the kids, particularly as no more promised Dinotopia seems to have materialised. The main episodes run for 540 minutes in total, with 5.1 surround sound and English audio only, no subtitles. We thought series was good value at around a tenner for the set. 'Dinotopia: The series' was first screened in 2002 and 2003, straight after the original 'Dinotopia' movie (filming started as soon as the first Dinotopia mini-series was completed owing to the high cost of maintaining the sets - Waterfall City alone took up 5.5 acres of back lot in England's Pinewood Studios).
im a great si-fi viewer love these dvds just up my street my son whoes 23 also loves them so im not the only sad person around
