5.0 out of 5 stars Think 'The Fugitive' with a robot Jan. 23 2013
Format:DVD
The Zeta Project is a solid show. It has great storytelling, endearing characters and a delightfully surprising mix of humour and action.
Begun as a spin-off from Batman Beyond, this show follows the story of Zeta, a robot that was designed to infiltrate and assassinate targets selected by the government agency that commissioned him to be built.
When the series starts, Zeta is being chased by Agent Bennett and his team. Zeta has decided that he will not kill anyone any more, but the government agency he works for thinks that he is faulty machinery that has been compromised behind enemy lines.
Along the way, Zeta teams up with Ro, a teen orphan who has run away from the foster care system.
She points out to Zeta that the people who built him would be able to back up his claim that he's had a change of heart, not programming. Thus begins their journey to track down the team that built Zeta.
Most of the humour of the show comes from the sarcastic, street-wise comments from Ro and Zeta's surprisingly limited understanding of human mannerism, phrases, nuances, etc. (sometimes one wonders how good of an infiltration unit he was, anyway).
The action, of course, is when Agent Bennett and his team get close to catching Zeta.
If you're a fan of the animated Batman, Superman, Justice League or Batman Beyond series, don't hesitate to add this to your collection. Your only regret will be that so far, there is no word on when, or even if, the second season will be released on DVD.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent addition to the DCAU June 17 2009
By Steven Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I never caught Zeta when it aired, but I was introduced to the show through Batman Beyond, the series it spun off from. The DVD heavily touts this association stating 'From the World of Batman Beyond' with 2 Bonus Episodes from BB featuring Zeta.

Despite coming from the same universe, Zeta has a completely different tone. There's a few episodes that I really enjoyed, like Taffy Time, where a bounty hunter lures Zeta into a trap using Agent Lee as bait, and Ro's Reunion was a good one. My least favorite episodes usually involved annoying kid genius Bucky, who tags along on 3 adventures. I liked the introduction of the upgraded model that Zeta attempts to stop from carrying out an assassination but then returns, setting his sights on Zeta. This one reminded me of Terminator. Batman makes a guest appearance in that one, but it felt more like a ratings grab than actually having a good reason to write him into the show.

The featurette about making the show is OK, the most interesting fact being that Robert Goodman originally created the show to be even darker than Batman Beyond but Kids WB forced them to make it more juvenile and target a younger audience. I would have liked to seen what it could have been had it taken a more serious tone seeing as some of the eps are pretty silly at times, but the show still works based on the strength of the concept and the fact that it's pretty action oriented.

I would have preferred if they had put all the season one eps on here (it's missing Absolute Zero) as opposed to giving us the Bonus Batman eps which have been previously released. It's a shame that this season didn't sell better because it means the chance of Season 2 releasing is slim and I would have liked to continue the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron Giant Meets Bourne Identity March 24 2009
By James Mcconnell - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This show is fun. Not very original, but fun. It is one of those great shows that are safe for kids, but parents can sit and watch with them.

The series follows Zeta (Nicknamed Zee), a robot trying to find his creator. He is helped by a girl named Ro, who teaches him about humans.

The main draw of the series is the interaction between the witty and sarcastic Ro, and the easily confused Zee. The action is also exciting.

As a fan of the DC animated universe, it is also cool to see the expanded world of Batman Beyond.

This is only the first half of the show, hopefully it will sell enough to warrant a second release. I highly recommend it to fans of cartoons, Batman Beyond, and parents who want a quality series for their kids that won't drive them nuts.

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed the show Aug. 7 2013
By K. Pring - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved Batman Beyond, it was dark, gritty, tough and one of the best episodes introduced a robot, Zeta. For those that don't know Zeta is part of the Greek alphabet, it's the 6th letter and based on the show Zeta is the 6th model of robot that the government of the future designed to assassinate someone, and you thought drones were bad. This particular killer robot, however, like so many robots we've come to love, grows a conscience and decides that killing is bad; throw in a snappy, streetwise teenage girl, and you have a show.
Done in the same animation style as Batman Beyond but with a more upbeat and kid friendly hue, Zeta looks great, the writing is solid, or at least as solid as shows like this could be in those days, and the only disappointment that I have with the show is that because of bad sales they are not going to release season 2. For that I think angry letters should be written to Warner Bros. but that's just me. Still, fun show, great for the kids and adults alike, clever, funny, what's not to like?
Thanks for reading and have a nice day!
1.0 out of 5 stars An absolutely uninteresting bore, there's a reason that this was forgotten or re-incarnated into movie's and re-boots! March 21 2014
By Supercalafragilisticexpealadocious - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I am trying to watch this show and have been trying to tonight, but it is so boring and uninteresting, I am not surprised so few people even know about this show, it is absolutely forgettable and totally a waste of time, DC should just stick with the known superhero's or create better new ones that will actually interest people and are more original and interesting. The concept of the show has possible substance, but a failed execution for a kids animated TV show.

The Zeta Project: Season One ZERO STARS out of *****
