Spawn: Season 3 on DVD
David Snyder | Thornton, CO | 10/13/1999
(3 out of 5 stars)
"Pretty much all it is. It has a few extra goodies such as some of the music videos McFarlane directed.Out of all the Spawn seasons I've come to like this one the best. This particular season gets much more into the characters and gives them quite a bit more depth. The story lines are very entertianing and interesting. This particular season has many shifts in overall mood. One moment in shock over seeing someone get torn apart in graphic fashion and the next feeling compassion and pity for the situation Al is in.The things that knocked this thing down to only 3 stars is: 1. DVD Menu exhibits unusual behavior on my player, a Sony 530D. The menu background loop has to start over before I can pick anything. Very annoying!2. The sound seems badly mixed. The music is coming through WAY too strong and makes the dialog difficult to hear. I was trying all kinds of different combinations to alleviate that to no avail.3. OK HBO, what is up with double sided DVD?!? I own numerous other discs, some of them animated like Record of the Lodoss War (highly recommended!) and they put everything on ONE side of the DVD, eliminating the annoyance of flipping it over.Bottom line, if you're a fan of the series I would recommend it. I would even buy it again if I were to lose the disc. My only issues are that the disc could have been done much better."
Now this is Spawn

"I love the animated version, not that i'm a fan of the comic but when i saw the animated show at HBO which was actually a pilot episode, featured crazy charecters, a dark detective, and now one of my all time favorites, Spawn, it just got me buzzin and hungry for more of this new out of this world dark animation. This is a dark, very dark and mature tv show and provides sarcastic humor, chillers, suspense, thriller, drama and action. If you liked Outlaw Star or The Big O, then make no exeption to get this DVD Special Collectiors edition of Spawn, because by the end of the night, Spawn will be what you regurarly watch."
Better Than Spawn Animated 1 or 2

"The animation is superb, dark and spooky, but viewers expecting a slam-bang orchestration of comic book violence, as the title misleadingly suggests, better look to the first Spawn animated videos. This is not a negative thing, as this is the first of the Spawn videos to add a human element and some complexity to the characters. It is the best written of the series, and you come away understanding much more what motivates Spawn and his surrounding cast of characters. While the first two videos were technical achievements, they left me feeling cheated because they presented the chracters in a dull and lifeless way. You actually care about the characters in this video. Even the battle between heaven and hell is not presented as merely good versus evil, but as a choice between the lesser of two evils. As usual, the voice acting is superb, particularly Keith David who is Spawn. There is a small documentary segment at the end where the actors talk about their roles, and one of them even says how this was the first time he felt like he could really do some acting in the series. I hope they don't stop making the animated Spawn, because it is getting better. Finally, like the WB Batman Animated Series, the animated Spawn is greatly superior to the live-action film representation of the character."
