DVD Talk reviews Herculoids DVD

I read this myself about a month ago, but for some reason neglected to share it with you here. That oversight is being rectified now...

DVD Talk, a website devoted to news and reviews of DVDs and Blu-Ray discs, has launched a new series of columns. The M.O.D. Squad concentrates on reviews of the growing number of manufacture-on-demand (M.O.D.) DVDs hitting the market, including those from Warner Archives, so naturally they turn their sights on The Herculoids: The Complete Original Series.

The review, written by Jamie S. Rich, is mostly fair, even though he gives the set a "Rent It" recommendation (which I see as a two-and-a-half to three stars out of five). The best line out of the review: "The Herculoids is... an artifact from a time when animation was maybe bigger on ideas than the execution allowed for." (And if you've read any of this blog, you know that's my reaction as well.)
