The characters and their interactions are really good; They aren't particularly cliched or obviously signalling things, and they often have to make meaningful choices. The story stays interesting and doesn't seem to fall into a repetitive formula. These combinations of things are rare and make this series stand out. This really is miles ahead of much modern material!
So the adults and the children are enjoying this one, and not as a fond memory of youth, but as a new thing now.
But Dungeons & Dragons was probably my fave,it was a shame they didnt make as many as say thundercats which had about 130 episodes!! Yowza!
I remember when D&D was shown on the bbc,and at the time we didnt have a VHS recorder (some youngsters are probably thinking "whats a VHS??") so what i did was record the programs on a tape recorder (again,what?...) and listen to them in my room! Sad i know lol!
Anyway,if you've never seen D&D then i would seriously think about buying this & see what good stories,interesting characters and funny dialog was all about back in the 1980's.Plus you get lots of extras,incl an interview with one of the writers and fan commentarys ;)
A note about this boxset...
I originally bought the dvds seperately when they were released but have been meening to get the boxset so's to protect them (i know its sad lol) so when i saw the set for £ i had to get it!
Sadly the box isnt like the one in the pictures...if you look at them closely you'll see that the box actually opens out to show the dvds and the list of episodes.But the one i received was a simple box where the dvds can easily fall out!!?? Wheres the box in the picture? For that i give it 2-stars...Grrr...
Did anyone else have the same problem?
And I was right. All four volumes containing all 27 episodes are housed in an elegant case made to look like a large tome (a spellbook, perhaps?). The boxset will look great on any DVD shelf but of course its value goes deeper than good looks. I feared that much of the show's magic would have diminished over the years especially when I watched it as an adult but I was wrong. Every episode was as thrilling and satisfying as I remembered as a child.
The extras included are nothing special but there's one or two worth clicking your DVD remote control at. There is an interesting interview with writer Micheal Reeves whose insights into the show's characters provide for a better appreciation of the show. There's also a featurette that looks at the opening sequence made for the second season which is now no longer used (watch it to find out why!). In addition, there are fan commentaries on many of the episodes.
If I had to make a negative comment, it's the fact that there was never a concluding episode made. The show ends abruptly and we never see our heroes fulfil their mission of getting back home. This is rather unfortunate given that the collection's tagline is "Only heroes will make it home". Despite this, Dungeons and Dragons is fantasy viewing at its best. Get your copy now and get spellbound all over again.
