After years of waiting from many loyal fans and 80s toon archivists or toy collectors, "The Centurions" have burst onto DVD in their original miniseries format. Included in this collection are the original five episodes from the test run miniseries, remastering of every laser blast and explosion, and the iconic "will return/back to..." commercial bumpers! Missing are the 30 second "tags" (lesson segments), Ruby Spears logo, and sixty more iconic episodes :(. Still, this does give fans of the original series or the toys a glimmer of hope for what could be on the horizon from Warner Archive. Keep "The Centurions" coming, Warner Archive!

It's Good.

I thought it was great that they offered this series, however it is only five episodes. I was hoping they would offer the whole series.

      Missing Title & Credit!

      Comments about The Centurions: The Original Miniseries:

      Overall, very good quality. However, episode 4 - Found: One Lost World - is missing its title card and the writing credit for Don Glut! The correct music plays, but all that's shown is the "go to commercial" animation with the series title. This omission is especially egregrious because the title card IS in the Boomerang airing of the episode! This is something that needs correcting for future pressings, as WB clearly has access to the proper version of the episode.

      This goof and the omission of the episode-ending PSAs aside, the product is satisfactory.

          Comments about The Centurions: The Original Miniseries:

          It's good to finally see some episodes of this show on DVD.
          The picture and sound quality are seriously awesome, I have never seen The Centurions so clean and clear before. The set I have on bootleg is terrible compared to this.
          After my opinion and as many other fans's, this DVD only has one minus,
          that involves the Public Service Announcements, they are missing.
          I really hope you guys at WB remember to add all 65 PSA's in the future releases of The Centurions.
          If not possible after each episode, then at least as an extra future.
          The PSA's are very important, the kids in the future can learn something important about life. I know I would want my kids to.
          So all in all this release is really good for a beginning, keep the releases coming for this awesome cartoon.

            Comments about The Centurions: The Original Miniseries:

            My only regret is this is just the initial mini-series. Featuring designs from comic book icons Jack Kirby and Gil Kane and tied into one of the greatest toylines of the 1980's, the Centurions was one of the best action animated series on television for its time. Absolutely amazing animation, especially for television, Centurions pushed boundaries for animated action, featured engaging diverse characters, and stands along the likes of G.I. Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, and Thundercats in terms of recognizability, well done product tie-in, and originality.
