I don't rememebr why I started watching this show. Maybe I was bored. I thought the toy was below average. I was utterly shocked by the writing though. It was totally unique and oriignal and for the most part had a continued story from episode to episode. It had all sorts of monsters that most shows wouldn't even try to show and even had a bit of violence that was surprising for a kids show (Ripping Grendel of Beowulf fame's arm off)
I'd love to see it come out on DVD.
