Reboot Season 1 and 2

Reboot Season 1 and 2
According to the back cover of this long-awaited, yet mildly anticipated box set, Reboot managed to capture the hearts and imaginations of kids and gamers when the show debuted in the United States in 1994 on ABC. The irony of that statement isn't lost on any Canadian fan, as they were the only ones who seemed to care as to where the hell Bob was while playing their Reboot-inspired POGS and enduring re-runs on YTV two years later. For the romantically nostalgic, revisiting the first computer-generated animated show, which introduced eager viewers to Bob the guardian, Enzo, Dot and the world of Mainframe, may seem like the perfect distraction from crying over their adult lives and responsibilities, but they may be disappointed by the then "revolutionary" use of CGI and the now dated and stunted dialogue, which consists of the misuse of computer terms simply to educate the technologically-challenged. Although, for those who choose not to avoid the reality of being an adult, Reboot will manage to tickle funny bones for its painfully obvious inappropriateness, which includes extreme close-ups of Dot, Mouse and Hexadecimal's camel toes, racist stereotypes and hints of an incestuous relationship between the show's main villains/siblings: Megabyte and Hexadecimal. Watching a Canadian cartoon that manages to get Gillian Anderson to make fun of herself and X-Files co-star David Duchovny in an episode entitled "Trust No One" while also throwing out such complex lines such as, "But Phong, it's wrong!" with serious conviction are just two of the many reasons why this nine-and-a-half-hour DVD box set will not be as excruciating as one would think to get through. The set may leave fans on the same cliff they were left hanging off of 17 years ago before a year-long hiatus (which I could only assume was due to the hentai-inspired porn of the show the perverted creators made in their spare time), but it's still a great throwback watch for all the wrong reasons. The DVD features solely consist of an audio commentary with the producer, storyboard artist and animator talking about how big Dot and Hexadecimal's breasts are for three episodes. (Shout! Factory)
