|DVD (Regular Edition) Features and Extras Review
This DVD features two fairly good interviews; one with Haley Joel Osment, and the other with the Cartoon Network
producers. The second one is a bit more elaborate, but both are good interviews to watch. The bonus mini-series
episode is also a special treat to all those missing the old IGPX. The audio commentary for Episode 3 is what brings
this portion's score down a bit. It seems like they really don't know what to say, and almost don't care. And there's a
few suggestive remarks thrown in just to get a laugh, or something. It doesn't work well, and I almost regret hearing
it. They made fun of their own show. Was it funny? Moderately. Was it out of line? I think so. I hope the next
commentary is a bit more prepared, appropriate and will hopefully not ruin one of my favorite episodes down the
road. Overall, though, the DVD is pretty well made. The only other thing that may bother purists is that a few lines
were changed in Episode 1...as in, re-recorded. If that's the way it was meant to be, I'll have to deal with it. A few
were changed for the better, though. The sound mix is very good, but the inclusion of the original Japanese track
makes this worth it. The original Japanese track has a better script overall. The voice acting is as good as the English
cast, but the writing is overall better than the English version. You really can't go wrong with the Regular Edition
DVD, and you're going to be glad you waited this long if you decide to buy the Special Edition with the T-shirt.

|These are actual photos of the Special Edition DVD. The T-Shirt came packed inside. It's kind of hard to
tell, but the 'puff pack' casing is literal. The top and bottom actually feel puffy. It's really cool and original.
The inside is the size of three DVD cases, with a little room to spare. The stock photo provided for us
doesn't really show the product well. There's also a few pictures of the T-Shirt. It's pretty big (Large Size),
so I wouldn't worry about it not fitting you-unless you wear small clothing.
