2.0 out of 5 stars Inhumanoids deserves better than this! July 18 2003
By Sean
Format:DVD
I love this show, it's easily one of my all-time favorites of the 80's. - So why two stars? Because of Rhino's crap treatment of it! They get one star for it simply BEING Ihumanoids, and an additional star for the episodes being in order. As for the rest, read on....
Just a few points - This is easily one of the more under-rated 80's cartoons out there, and really deserves better treatment. How about a Complete Series set? You could easily squeeze all 13 episodes on 2 DVDs (or, preferably, 3 to maximize picture quality).
Think of this series as "Cthulu Lite," with Lovecraft-esque creatures bent on world domination, the only thing standing in their way being a small group of environmental explorers. Not as cheesy as it sounds, Inhumanoids boasted some of the best one-liners (genuinely FUNNY one-liners, not the typical 80's cheese) and genuine peril for its characters than any series of the period. Plus the series was actually a continuing saga, with the events of each episode affecting the next. If you watch them out of sequence, you'd be completely lost as to what was going on. At least I'm glad to see Rhino was releasing the episodes in their proper order, something the previous 80's video release didn't.
I've never seen any official word on the subject, but it would not surprise me in the least if one of the reasons the show was pulled (aside from low ratings and poor toy sales) back in 1986 was for excessively violent content. I can easily believe parents forbidding their young ones to watch this show. Unfortunately for the curious, the most violent episodes are the final 4, which have yet to be officially released in any format (aside from the original TV broadcasts, of course).

5.0 out of 5 stars The Inhumanoids rise again.... Oct. 21 2001
Format:DVD
This series of adventures takes place after the initial emergence of the Inhumanoids, sparked by the regeneration of one of Tendrill's tentacles. Once again, the armor-clad good guys are the underdogs. A second Tendrill is born, and partnered with a malevolent artificial intelligence. Metalar, subsequently, is released from his magnetic prison. Those guys in the politically-besieged Earth Corps never get to rest for more than five minutes.
Blackthorne, now a jailbird in a swampy prison, escapes, along with his new fellow villain, Dr. Mangler. But Mangler takes it on the way out, drowning in toxic waste. Blackthorne promises to return for him....
The Russians hatch a birdbrain scheme to flood the earth's core, wiping out Metalar's hellish kingdom. The fact that this scheme will effectively wipe out the earth too seems to have eluded them somehow. The only Russian with brain #1 between his ears rebels against the others, while the Russians mix it up with both the Earth Corps and Metlar. In the aftermath, the Russian renegade is given his own armor made of tank surplus (just call him "Tank") after which he promply splits the scene to go after Metlar alone.
Blackthorne releases D'Compose from his amber prison, and dredges the toxic swamp to find Mangler's remains. When D'Compose gives ole' Mangler the zombie treatment, a hideous abomination is born, the skull-faced Nightcrawler, who is so ugly that even D'Compose gets the creeps. Eventually, both Blackthorne and Nightcrawler start their own dark cult of dimwitted teenagers to be used as D'Compose's zombie minions. Chemical solutions are stolen, and Nightcrawler begins work on a formula that will (or so he says) make D'Compose and his zombie spawn invulnerable against the sun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inhumanoids: the saga continues! Sept. 19 2001
By Yamez
Format:DVD
My single most favorite animated show from my childhood that I can still enjoy now has to be "The Inhumanoids". I was glad to see the first volume released on DVD (my fifteen year old VHS tape was just about beat), and I was even happier to see that they were going to continue with the series. "The Inhumanoids" is an action based show, with three giant elemental type bad guys, the "Inhumanoids". One master of molten rock and steel"Metlar" one master of the undead "Decompose" and "Tendrill" who is made of plant material. There are also creatures made of granite , and trees who end up helping the "Earth Corps" fight the Inhumanoids. The corps is a group of four men, and one woman who, equiped with highly advanced exo-suits, are the only thing standing in the Inhumanoid's way. The art on "The Inhumanoids" is very cool, the backgrounds are all done with a strange kind of surreal coloring, like lavender skies. The second installment will offer a new bad guy, and some twists on the existing characters. The Earth Corps must now figure out how to right the earth's polarity which has been reversed, causing good to be evil, and evil to be good.
This is a great series and I hope they end up releasing the entire series on DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars What happened? Nov. 1 2001
By SiC
Format:DVD
This disc looks like Rhino made the first disc all nice and good. Then, after it sold well quickly churned out this ont the market. The video quality is no where near as good as the original. the cover art is virtually the same. It has video error lines and colour faults in the picture, the entire picture looks soft. The intro still has the totally stiffled music, the credits are still the Still frame credits and not the animated ones that the original series had. Also away from the shoddy making of the DVD the writing is quite bad compaired to the original disc. You can see that they had no-where to go for ideas, no wonder it only lasted 13 episodes(including the 5 on the original disc). I recommend the first disc to everyone but this disc only to completests as it has less episodes, of a lower standard of production in worse quality for the same price.
I will probably still be buying the third disc if they make one simply as a completest, and in the hope they can turn it around.
