As a huge fan of the GI Joe cartoon series, it was great pleasure to add this DVD set to my collection. However, there is a problem with episode #5 of Arise, Serpentor, Arise, in that is seems that the European version of the final episode made the cut instead of the North American version. All of a sudden, GI Joe is referred to as Action Force and Sgt. Slaughter is referred to as Sgt. Slammer. And the battle cry of 'Yo Joe' is replaced with 'Full Action'. It is quite annoying because the actors who originally voiced the characters are NOT the ones who do the voices overs for the European version, so it is very odd hearing two people voice over every character in the final epsiode.
All of the other episodes seem to be of their original North American quality.
Just keep in mind that when you purchase this set (versus either of the two season 1 sets), that you are getting less episodes (3 discs versus the standard 4 discs in season 1 sets).

Man this was a great TV show, it's to bad kids today are not lucky enough to have great cartoons like this one, instead they get Poke mon etc.Wow what happened? Anyway back to the Joe's .In this season we get Serpentor and the inclusion of the B.A.T.S.( battle android troopers) wich are a great bonus so now the artists can show some actual death and dismemberment that was missing from all the previous battles.Good stuff.
The only problem I feel is that there's only 15 episodes on this 3 disc release! and its been more than 6 MONTHS since its release and part 2 isnt anywere to be seen.I dont know if Rhino stoped the production or what but come on guys , get with the program.We need at the very least the rest of season 2 dammit.I recommend these box sets to any old schooler that grew up watching this show after school back in the day.Man , the memories.sigh.
