4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Surprise !!! Sept. 30 2005
By Magni
First off, let me say I didn't expect much from this series since it only had one season. I had never seen the show since it never aired on Canadian TV. But, being a big Conan fan (and everything related to Robert E. Howard's creations) I decided to purchase the set. Off course it's not really true to Howard's work, but no one has ever been except for Howard himself. But there are a few elements reminiscent of scenes from the novels or the old Marvel comic's series.
Frankly, I was blown away by how much fun this show is. It doesn't take itself too seriously but it definetely delivers in terms of entertainment. It reminds me of Hercules the Legendary Journeys, or meaby the Sinbad series. Ralf Moeller delivers a good performance as the powerful barbarian. He has the build, the determined frown and he sounds like Arnold when he played Conan for the big screen. The supporting cast is great and filled with memorable characters.
The only thing that costs this review the much coveted 5th star is the 3D special effects. We're kinda far from Industrial Lights and Magic... So sometimes the animated elements mix roughly with the live action elements. But hey! As I said the show is about being entertaining not about breakthrough special effects.
So this DVD set is well worth it for die-hard Conan fans or any fans of fantasy adventure "a la" Hercules, Xena or Sinbad. But if you take your fantasy too seriously you might be put off by the lightness of it all. Have fun !!!

Sword/sorcery and TV format never were best friends. The tight budget coupled with the 50 minutes running time were not made for such adventurer stories. Luckily, the producers made the most out of what they had. 22 episodes of simple fun !!!!!

Who is really Conan, how does he sound like..... nobody knows. Ralf Moeller is not a great actor, but after he few episodes, he truly believes that HE IS CONAN. That is all that matters. He is physically massive and reads his lines in a way that he will make you believe that that he portrays the barbarian the way it was meant to be. The rest of the acting crew is pretty good. Rapidly, you will choose your favorite one.

Plots varies in quality and that is probably the weak point of the serie. Veteran S. and S. viewers will see the storyline twists and scenario punches coming from a mile ahead. The special effects are a bit primitive (low-budget).

The production is quite detailed. The sets are nice and the photography is splendid. Tons of bettle scenes and lots of action (a bit too much to my taste). I do not know what is in the Cimmerian water, but you have you be a pretty wicked witch so that you did not turn out to be a totally gorgeous woman. They spent plenty of $$$ on starlets. All in all, it is a very lush production. I watched a few episodes on a big panoramic screen and it was an eyeful in every way.

Buy this one, even at the $50 price. It is worth every penny. Warning : Do not watch them at machine gun pace or you will find the fight scenes repetitive. Other than that, it is pure magic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Unappreciated Show!!! Oct. 1 2004
By lordjaga - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
First a quick review:

Picture quality is fine , colorful and clear with some minor compression occasionally (5 episodes per 1 sided discs,last disc has 2 episodes) Sound is clear and crisp. Episodes are uncut as memory serves.

Correct episode order:

On disc 1 Heir Apparent which originally aired last as #22 was filmed fourth. Heir Apparent should be watched as the last episode on disc 1. (watch as the 5th episode on disc 1) for continuity reasons. Lethal Wizards IS the SERIES FINALE. Explanation below:

When the show ran originally, one of the Main actors (not Conan) appears to have left the show after the third episode (Lair of the Beastmen) and a new actor takes over a new role on the fourth episode (The Siege of Ahl Sohn-Bar). 17 episodes later the series finale airs (Lethal Wizards which has a definite and satisfying ending to the series). Then, Heir Apparent aired as the last episode and because this was really filmed fourth with the original actor before a new actor had been introduced into the series a new voice over was made explaining why the new guy was gone and why the old guy was back. Confusing right?

To rectify this simply watch Heir Apparent after The Siege of Ahl Sohn-Bar and everything fits perfectly.

Hopefully this helps anyone watching the show.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun series Jan. 24 2005
By Howard fan - Published on Amazon.com
One review on here states that this series got better as it went along. I agree. This series really does improve with each episode and the final conclusion is quite satisfying. This entire DVD set plays out like one big movie. I love the cast and the characters in this series. Cool and funny heroes and hot female warriors! What more could I ask for? This is great! Plus the low budget fx don't hurt either. Brian Yuzna produced this and nobody does low budget effects like Yuzna. I like cheesy fun and have a good imagination. Conan the series has provided me with hours of fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE FUNNEST DVD SETS THERE IS! Feb. 14 2006
By R. Rawley - Published on Amazon.com
The continuing adventures of Conan are often quite different from what Robert Howard wrote. This is true of Conan's further literary, animated, film, comic book, and TV adventures. This doesn't mean there is plenty of Conan related entertainment that delivers a fun experience. I'm a fan of Howard's work and I enjoy Conan in various forms too. The reviewer who claims that the Arnold movies are "true" Howard is maistaken. The story told in Arnold's Conan movies is VERY DIFFERENT from what Howard wrote. Neither movie remains true to Howard's writings but they are fun. So is this series. It's more kid friendly than the films but it's still a great blast of fun. The cast is awesome and it's a wonderful DVD set. A+!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not really true Conan...but Jan. 17 2005
By Lunar Strain - Published on Amazon.com
Many "die hard" Conan fanatics probably will be disappointed by this show as it really isn't true "Conan". The series, of course, tamed down the character for TV. He's more friendly, talkative, and has a number of sidekicks. The show is actually quite cheesy, bing more influenced by Hercules and Xena than the orignal Conan movies and novels. That aside, the series is also quit entertaining and the show actually gets better as it progresses. Ralf Moeller is also a perfect choice for Conan. He has the perfect build and he even does an Arnold impression with his voice! The DVD set is also incredable. All 22 episoids are present on 5 discs that come individual cases housed in one big slipcase. Not much for extras, but fans of the series will be just happy to see it on DVD as many probably thought they would never see it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Low budget series but high quality DVD set! Dec 25 2004
By JS - Published on Amazon.com
I just got this as a gift for Christmas and I'm thrilled with it. I'm having a blast watching it. I just want to take a moment to give my appreciation for the quality of this set. Everything from the box art to the slim individual cases of each volume... I also really like how the menus are set up. And there's even chapters for each individual episode. Something you don't get in a lot of the more popular & highly regarded shows. This package was put together with care. Since there is (unfortunately) only one season someone had the good sense to make it right.
