"After a campy but enjoyable first film directed by Wes Craven, and an ungodly bad sequel, Swamp Thing got himself his own live action TV series (a short-lived cartoon would follow as well), with none other than longtime stunt man Dick Durock reprising his role from the films as the tortured, muck monster. First off, it should be noted that Swamp Thing was quite low budget, but for its time, the show somehow managed to pretty much work for what it was. However, what really hurt the show was the schizophrenic writing, which would focus on Swamp Thing one minute, and then treat him as a back seat, supporting character the next. As a whole, the show was a mixed bag, yet at the same time, it managed to be pretty enjoyable. The supporting cast, which included Mark Lindsay Chapman as Swampy's old nemesis Dr. Anton Arcane, Carrell Myers as the friendly Tressa, and a young Kari Wuhrer who briefly appears as Abigail. If you enjoyed the show when it originally aired, this DVD set is worth picking up, and if you're an old fan of the DC character, this may be worth a look, although those fans might feel better off sticking with the classic comics by Alan Moore instead."

"Well ive been wanting this one to come out for a long time. In high school this was one of my fave series on tv. It was a saturday night ritual along with several other shows that me and mine watched durring its run in the ninties..
Tis awsome that Alec and his buddies finally made it to dvd. The quality is good.. the transfer seems really nice and there are come color corrections to it that i never noticed on my lousy tv and on broadcast tv. Well I hope you all like it as much as I do.. Only two small gripes.. 1) lack of specail featuers(though the Dick Durrock interview was nice) and 2) how bloody long do we have to wait for the second half!!?
What a great series!

"I had totally forgotten about this great tv series. Its more like the comics than the films but has the same guy playing swamp thing. The make up effects are just as good as the movie and since they are so many episodes you really get to explore the character in a way the movie never did. Highly recommended for any super hero / comic fans. Too bad this was on in the early 90's, it probably would have been a big hit now."
Great except for...

"This is great to see on dvd and watch again. But don't be fooled. The episodes are out of order according to my list on the dvd cover and the list on IMDB.
And Vol. 2 still has some episodes missing and out of order. Again according to the list on IMDB, the air dates for the episode are out of order and missing.
There are supposed to be 72 episodes, the 2 vol set only has 33.
The list shows HALF the 3rd season episodes are missing.
Great to watch again, but not worth the money as they screwed up the episodes and left over 1/2 out of the set.
