One thing I've realized since re-viewing this fantastic series is, episodes are either slipshod, silly, and hard to watch, ( To say nothing of the over-all quality ) or absolutely brilliant, and deserving of taking their rightful place beside other beloved sci-fi classics. Which, is frankly, amazing in itself.
Mature viewers, such as my friends and I, weren't the intended audience. On the whole, the writers actually wrote up to their viewers, as opposed to everyone else at the time, creating 30 minute toy commercials, and writing down to them.
Reclaiming a lost wife, coming to grips with a past life, and other advanced storylines ran through the series like a golden thread, in stark contrast to the childish and predictable plots in other cartoons at the time.
So many great characters, and great stories. I've already watched, and rewatched every episode that delt with the Super Troopers, and some of Goose's other issues. I wish the character of Niko had been explored furthur, but I'll take what I can get.
I was surprised to see this collection finally come to light. No, that's wrong, I was extatic. This isn't a shoddy slap together product, either. It's crammed full of artwork, info, and bonus materials on the DVD itself.
What's more, you can play the 'Galaxy Rangers theme', and 'Rangers are forever', until you can't see straight. All these years, and those songs are still hardwired into my brain. Yes, the cartoon had fantastic music, as well.
So, why are you still reading this? Show some support, and maybe a future movie or two will be based off of a good cartoon for a change.
No guts, no glory!
