The classic 80's series is back!
While investigating the mysterious death of his brother, MATT TRAKKER uncovers an international organisation known as VENOM, dedicated to nefarious criminal activities in every corner of the world. Driven by his quest to know the truth about his brother's demise, Matt gathers together a number of friends who, like himself, are ordinary people who possess extraordinary talents, and creates MASK. Their objective: to destroy VENOM and its mastermind, the abominable MILES MAYHEM.
Joined by his young son SCOTT and his faithful robot T-BOB, Matt's conspirators in MASK include: BRUCE SATO, an inventor of outlandish children's toys who serves as MASK's engineer and mechanic; HONDO MacLEAN, an ordinary history teacher whose courage and fearlessness make him an integral part of MASK; BUDDY HAWKS, garage mechanic; BRAD TURNER, an outrageous rock musician; ALEX SECTOR, a computer expert who, by day, runs a nondescript pet shop; DUSTY HAYES, a pizza vendor whose specialty is auto and marine stunt driving, and the beautiful GLORIA BAKER, a driving school instructor whose superior mastery of the martial arts makes her a lethal weapon.
To keep their identities secret, each member of MASK wears a mask which also provides them with extraordinary powers, including holographic projection, remote control lasers and the MASK agents even have the ability to transform their vehicles into watercrafts and planes. Armed with their super-powered masks and their desire to make the world a safer place, MASK is relentless in its quest against VENOM, and will never rest until Miles Mayhem is brought to justice for his crimes against humanity.

The quality is that of normal standard episodes from master tapes, like Box Set 1, these episodes have not been re-mastered. This is due to the sets being distributed by a smaller distribution company and hardily any fan demand for such restoration. There is also no extras (since hardily will exsist for an old 80's cartoon, unless the companies involved actually looked for something decent), but I'm content on just getting the episodes.
There is however a couple of flaws, the episode 'The Creeping Desert' has a very faint extra vocal track in the background (from the episode 'The Lost Fleet' also on this set), this is an error that was present on the master tape used for the DVD transfer so that can't be helped, however this shouldn't discourage you from watching the episode, you can still hear the proper dialogue, music, sound effects etc, despite the very faint extra audio track.
The other flaw is with Disk 4 that houses the Racing Season, some of the episodes are presented in the wrong order, but this is a very minor flaw as all 10 episodes are present on the disk.
So despite the flaws, I would still buy this to complete your collection, especially if you have all ready brought MASK Box Set 1.
So prepare to see Matt Tracker and Miles Mayhem do battle once more, see new agents like Julio Lopez for MASK and Nash Gorey for VENOM (and other new agents) make their Season 1 debut, see the new MASK and VENOM racing vehicles go head to head in races across the globe and always, always get ready to hear more bad puns from T-Bob!
This is a great cartoon if you can appreciate good quality cartoons of the eighties. It has futuristic masks, multifunctional vehicles, a pinch of laughter, worldwide sceneries and the always present lesson to learn in the end! Priceless and Timeless!
The only downsides are the previously mentioned quality of the image (we can say it's a vintage series and that the quality is part of its status...), the lack of fan directed extras, and the advisable calm you must have in watching the episodes. This last one refers to the predictableness and repetition of the episodes story type, a typical seventies/eighties formula of cartoons.
None the less, a great buy and a must have!!! Very nice price for a four disc pack loaded of episodes and hours of fun!
It has final 27 episodes from season one and the complete season two "Racing Series".
This is a must have for any M.A.S.K. fan.
