"I've been waiting for these DVD's to come out for a long time. This cartoon is probably the best animation I've ever seen because it's computer-generated, making it very real. The plot of season 3 (part of which is on this DVD) is very well-thought out, and the characters are awesome (especially Bob and Mouse). I love the character development and the relationships that we see develop in season 3 too. The imagination put into the plot, the characters and this show in general, is pure genius. All three of these DVD's are going straight to my wish list!"

"If you did a little research you would find out the the 4 Vols sold on amazon are vol 1-4 of seasonIII. It is one complete season. not random episodes from different seasons. I too would gladly like to see all the seasons. But come on WHAT DID YOU EXPECT FOR about 20 bucks A WHOLE SEASON GET REAL USE YOUR BRAIN THINK. Most series that sell as whole season sell for well over 50 bucks!
Your review is incorrect and made me do research before i decided to buy. Please find all the facts before posting incorrect reviews!Now onto the review!
Reboot is great! These 4 vols of season III are wonderful we could only hope that the first 2 seasons come out sometime in the future! Season IV is slated for later this year!"

"Well, perhaps not EXACTLY, but that's what comes to mind when I think of the third season of Reboot. The first of Reboot was Saturday morning cartoon fare. Good, but but not incredible. The second season was DEEP, and contains my favorite episode of the entire series, ANDRAIA. But the third season is probably the most popular, and the four episodes on this DVD are probably the reason why.The first episode, Icons, is one of my all-time favorite episodes of anything ever. In a plot inspired by the Seven Samurai and The Magnificent Seven, a now grown-up Andraia and Enzo Matrix must help some unlikely heros save a system which is in such bad condition that another lost game will undoubtedly cause it to crash. This epsisode features a cool atmosphere, great dialog, and a game inspired by Conan the Barbarian (but with the heroes of the system rebooting as scotish warriors, including Matrix rebooting as William Wallace). Anime fans will undoubtably notice the background motion effect used when Matrix fights is fighting a gargoyle (a total anime-style flying through the air moment).The second episode is a Star Trek tribute that any Trekkie will love to death. Most of the episode is about Matrix and Andraia taking sides, working out their disagreements, and (oh yeah) finding and destroying a virus. Pretty great.The third episode is a trip. In a LONG reference to the old show The Prisoner (which I unforetunately have not seen), Matrix and Andraia find themselves back in Mainframe (or is it Mainframe?), trying to find out who the Mysterious #1 is, and what the secret is that he is holding. This epsisode ends in Matrix realizing that he needs to renew his efforts to get back home to Mainframe, and never allow himself to give up.The fourth episode is more of what made the first episode in the third season so great. Old-school anime/sci-fi wild west action. Our heroes land in a system resembling Tatooine, which contains a space-port. But faster than you can say Star Wars, the plot rips wide open, with Super Viruses, Evil Guardians, and the Entire Net involved in a danger that only Matrix can stop. If that wasn't enough for you, you get to see Matrix's gun go into death blossom mode, a crazy shootout, and one-on-one quickdraw duel featuring the music and camera-work of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.This DVD has everything you could want. Grat plot, great characters, great sound, great animation, great action, and enough subtle references to make any movie/tv/sci-fi/fantasy fan smile. A must buy for the animation fan."

"While I'm a great fan of reboot, my second favorite show growing up (transformers was my first), this is outrageous, to charge this sort of price for four or five episodes, and they didn't even release season 1 or 2, I would gladly pay the price there asking if it was the full season, but this isn't worth it."
Always the classic

"Out of the four ReBoot DVD's, this is my least favorite, but that doesn't mean it was bad! This classic cartoon show, a milestone in computer graphics productions, continues to improve in the second DVD. The story is well developed and well written. Unlike the first two seasons of this show (these DVD's contain only the 3rd), the entire 3rd season is an arced plot. If you are a geek, a CGI affictionado, or looking for a new source of entertainment, THIS IS IT."
