Hello guys and gals!

Okay, so I've started doing something new on my YouTube page - Reviews! While they may not ALL be relevant to the board, I thought you might enjoy a look at the Cartoon DVD related ones as I do them.

The first review I've done is an in-depth look at the Voltron DVD sets put out by Media Blasters. In fact, I went into SO much detail about them I had to split it all up into 3 parts. Each part focusses on a different aspect of the release, with the final part talking about the show itself. I've also included clips in each part, in high quality so you can see just how good these DVDs look! Speaking of which, be sure to select the high quality playback option for the best video/audio.


Part 1 - A Close Look at the 5 Lion Tin DVD Sets

Part 2 - The Remastering Process for the DVDs

Part 3 - Censorship in the Series
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pazNgo2quRE


Enjoy, and let me know what you think! If you like what you see, I'll continue to post my cartoon DVD reviews here whenever I do them (I've got a few planned for the near future).

Have watched this and a few others of the Multimedia Chronicles and they're very good!

Without meaning to sound condesending (sp?) was half expecting a fan boy "man this is the best thing since sliced bread - buy it" type of thing but you actual put some effort into this and researched it and came up with a very interesting commentary on pretty much all the different aspects of the show/release.

I can't rememeber ever seeing Voltron when I was a kid but a mate seems to remember it and it looks cool so I've gotten the first season boxset (that's all that out in Region 2 at the moment). Unfortunately, just like ThunderCats, we've gotten different boxes which are metal but the "uplift" is less server. Oh well I'll just have to make do with the (hopefully) kickass cartoon on the inside (Just polishing off the end of ThunderCats before getting started with Voltron)!

On a side note RE the boxs inter locking - while it does sound very cool indenting from the back may have damaged the paintwork on the back of the box. I'm not an expert on this stuff or anything but that seems the most likely reason for dumping the idea.

Well I seem to have babbled on a bit more then I had planned! Hope you keep the Multi Media Chronicles coming!
