EDIT
Bob and Dot fight to keep Megabyte from harnessing the power of a recently discovered, unusually large, "Tear". They nearly succeed, but a game unexpectedly drops down, enveloping them along with the tear, which has become a portal to the Supercomputer. Dot and Bob must defeat Megabyte inside the game, or he will escape through the stablized tear, infecting other systems and becoming more powerful.moreless

  • Very good!

    9.5
    This was a very good episode. It did not really show Bob coming from the super computer but I did'nt mind. It starts off with Hack and Slash chasing down Bob. Now the thing is, Megabyte was trying to use Bob to make the tear stable and make a portal to the super computer. Weirdly later in the series, Daemon tried to use him to to make a tear stable also!



    I think this was pretty good episode. i would have like to see Bob coming from the super computer but that was sorta show in season 4. So I'm not upset. It was a very good episode.moreless
  • It did it's job.

    5.9
    As a pilot episode, it did it's job. It introduced the main characters, let us into the world, and showed us how things work. We saw what tears were, and how they can be used. We saw games, and both what happens when you win them, and more importantly, what happens when you lose them.



    Overall, it was a decent episode. Not great, but not bad. It's hard to get as much information across that they did, and still be highly entertaining. Sometimes you need action, other times you need comedy, and other times, you need things to be explained so that everything else makes sense. This was the needed explination episode that will pave the way for funnier, more action packed episodes.moreless
  • Bob is sought after by Megabyte to do him a favor.

    9.0
    This is a great first episode; all of the major characters are introduced and so is the primary antagonist, Megabyte. We also gain knowledge of how Mainframe works with the game cubes, we know where Megabyte's lair is and we know that guardians and games are the only things that can stabilize tears. Megabyte's ultimate goal was also revealed, getting into and infecting the super computer. We also see the comic relief of the evil in the series, Hack and Slash the twin robots that serve Megabyte and carry out his evil plans on a regular basis. Great way to start a series.moreless
  • A great way to open a great show

    9.0
    What a great way to open a great show. So basically the run down on the episode is- Bob is back in his home town and Megabyte is pestering him for a favor. Bob goes to check it out and is held captive by Megabyte till Dot turns and accidently save him. Then a game appears and they are throw in to a flying space adventure. I have to say that i thought the terminology of this was a bit advanced for kids but it was great. This was a great episode, that entertained and taht i enjoyed. The only critisism i have is that the viewer is just thown in with little idea of whats going on- and have to figure it out them selves. But other wise this a must see episodemoreless
  • Not bad if I do say so myself.

    8.9
    Viewers will be blown away as much as I was (but not too much) over the content and the presentation, overall, of the episode. It was a great first episode to a great series. The only thing regrettable about the episode would be that it starts off with Bob far away from Mainframe (why would Hack and Slash chase him that far out of Mainframe?) and, also, the background information of the characters (Bob, Phong, Dot, Enzo and Megabyte) are not presented.



    All in all, with the excellent introduction to the Game Cubes ( a little bit of information about it is presented ) and a great first game of space simulation, this episode was great for the series premier!moreless
