Review: Transformers: Energon, Volume One


My son was so excited to see what was in the mail today, a new DVD to review for free!! This time we were reviewing Transformers Energon: Volume One. He couldn't wait to go veg out in front of the TV after a busy day at preschool and I was happy to oblige on this rainy day in MN. Tomorrow is supposed to be nice, so we will be too busy playing outside to spend any time sitting in front of the TV.

This DVD from Shout Factory includes the first 7 episodes with a total run length of 154 minutes, which is one of the longest kid DVDs that I think we own. While he didn't watch it all of it in one sitting, not even close, the DVD does have the option to pick which episodes you want to watch you so can come back to them whenever you want.

I also really like that this DVD goes write to the main menu without previews for anything else or advertisements for toys or anything. I like to minimize how many advertisements and previews my son sees. I know that he is already exposed to quite a bit, but I minimize where I can. Plus, since he doesn't know how to use the Xbox control to get DVDs started I can get it started right away for him and now have to hang around in front of the TV fast-forwarding through previews.

He really enjoyed this DVD. I mean, it's Transformers - they are machines that turns in to robots and is good fighting against evil, so what's not to love.

My friend's son used to love Transformers--I can't remember how many I actually bought for him. Back then they did not have a DVD series or I am sure I would have been convinced to get him that as well!
