Movie Reviews

Totally pointless release is plagued further by bad episode
A Customer | 07/17/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"A year and a half ago, Shout! Factor brought us Captain N: The Game Master on DVD - something us old-school Nintendo fanboys had wanted for years. At long last, this classic, complete series had been released on DVD.

Considering the complete series is on DVD, there's no reason for further DVD releases....

....So what's the point of this package?

This collection retails for roughly $7 and only includes 4 episodes - Kevin in Videoland, Videolympics, Mr. And Mrs. Mother Brain, and Mega Trouble For Megaland. And NO bonus features (unless previews count.)
What angers me the most is that this set doesn't provide anything you couldn't get in the Complete Series box set.

And what's up with the bad episode choices? It's clear that this package was intended to include some First Season highlights. Kevin in Videoland is a given, it's the series pilot. And Mega Trouble For Megaland is one of the first season's best episodes. But the other two episodes, Videolympics and Mr And Mrs. Mother Brain, are utter jokes. How these got included here instead of, say, How's Bayou, Metroid Sweet Metroid, Three Men And A Dragon, or my personal favorite from Season One, The Most Dangerous Game Master, I will never know.

There are also NO BONUS FEATURES apart from the previews. Disappointing considering all the stuff that could have been used that wasn't in the Complete Series box sets - comic book scans, commercial bumpers, teasers, commercials, the list goes on. And while were at it, how much longer until we get the When Mother Brain Rules clip show, a non-defective version of Queen of the Apes, and the second version of How's Bayou on DVD?

This is a pointless budget DVD that gives us nothing we didn't already get on the Shout! Factory DVDs from last year. I'm hoping for a DVD supplement to the box set that includes alternate versions of episodes and other stuff the box set omitted - but this isn't it. Don't even bother with this set. Go directly to the Complete Series box set."
