Movie Reviews

Rangers are forever!
Tara OShea | Chicago, IL USA | 10/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was just 13 when "Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers" first hit the airwaves, but it made a tremendous impression on me in a way few action/adventures cartoons of that or any era have. The stories were engaging, the characters well-drawn (in both senses of the word) and fleshed-out, the world Robert Mandell, Owen Lock, Christopher Rowley and the rest of the talented writing staff created was utterly compelling.

Blending elements from "Star Wars" space opera and classic Westerns such as "The Magnificent Seven" and "Fist Full of Dollars", "Galaxy Rangers" stood head and shoulders above other animated space westerns like the largely forgettable "Brave Starr" and "Sabre Rider" and I'm pleased to say it definitely stands the test of time for me, being just as entertaining now as when I first saw it in 1986.

This remastered release is what the fans have been waiting for. With digitally restored episodes and newly remastered 5.1 sound, the show have never looked or sounded better. It's a real treat for longtime fans, and will no doubt garner new fans as well! If you enjoyed "Batman: The Animated Series" and "Gargoyles" in the 1990s, then don't miss some of the very best of the 1980s with"Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers.""
I was afraid I'd be disapointed.

"I'm very happy to report that I wasn't. This is the first of two DVD's currently out. The Galaxy Rangers was a space western cartoon that ran in the late 80's or early 90's, and I used to rush home from school to watch it.

Watching them again from the perspective of adulthood, I can see flaws: the animation is jerky and the characters are sometimes badly done; the dialouge is poor. But the backgrounds and the general quality of the drawing is terrific, and the plots are more sophisticated than you might expect for a kid's show.

The quality of the DVD itself is very good too; you can tell that some care went into this, which is nice to see. Too many companies put out quick and dirty DVD's just to get a few bucks off the fans; this was put together with a bit of pride in the DVD, which is nice.

Hopefully more will be released; I'd love to get the whole series on DVD.

Long, Boring Side Note: I do have to wonder if Joss Whedon ever watched this series. Obviously "Firefly" is better done (It's quite possibly the best series ever made, so that's no slur on this cartoon) but some bits and pieces remind me of this... in a very small and general way. Of course, that could be just because they're both space westerns and there are bound to be genre similarities. But it would be nice to think that my TV-making hero watched the same stuff as me when he was a kid."
