Series 1 Wonderfull. Series 2 not so much.
on 10 December 2016
2 discs, 2 series and if I could give two different ratings I would.
We bought this after watching Series 1 on YouTube (I recommend doing this as it is all there). We saw there was a second series but it was all in a foreign language on YouTube so bought this disc.
The second series is not as good as the first. The animations are different, the voices are different and it did not have the same viewing experience. I think the theme tune was also changed which ruined the build up to the episode. Such a shame, although my children enjoyed it enough to watch it all. I didn't, so the actual stories might have been okay.
The first series, however, is wonderful. It took me back to my childhood and was still enjoyable as an adult. It also lead to us talking about the musketeers and was quite educational. It was more violent than I remembered, Dogtanian seems to fight everyone over anything at all! It probably wouldn't make it on tv today.
I would recommended buying this if you can't find all of series 1 on YouTube. My 3 and 5 year olds enjoyed it, as did I. Don't have high expectations for series two though.
