This is a review of the product on Google Play, not the show itself. The show is fantastic: the setting, characters, plot, development, lore, animation, voice acting, music, it's all done very well. I would highly recommend this show to both children and adults. I purchased this through my Roku on my television, so I can't speak for other mediums. The visual quality is pretty poor, as the outlines are often pixelated and the picture wouldn't nearly take up the majority of my television screen. The sound for the Nickelodeon logo at the beginning was also much louder than the sound from the show itself. Even though the show came out in the early 2000's, the quality wasn't this bad at all. I remember being incredibly impressed with the animation when watching it on Nickelodeon. On here, it's distracting, and there's no excuse. I would recommend purchasing a high-quality dvd box set instead of on Google Play (each of the 3 seasons are sold separately for about $20 I believe).

This show is fantastic, no doubt about that, and I think you'd be hard pressed to find anybody who would describe it as any less than "good." This review is more about Google Play product than the show, however. I've seen others commenting on the visual quality and I have to say, I could not find the same flaws. I bought the HD Complete Series and, after having watched some on both my laptop and my phone, the aspect ratio and resolution are fine, and the visual quality (as a result) is exactly as I expected. The HD version probably isn't necessary, though if you've got the extra cash it certainly won't hurt. If you were to play this on a TV I would just recommend buying the DVD/Blu-ray set, as that will probably retain better quality than casting from your computer will anyway. The one complaint I do have about this product is that the audio level does seem to be a bit too low, even compared to the Nickelodeon intro. Otherwise, a fine product, and exactly what I expected and paid for.

This show is one of the greatest animated series of all time; unforgettable characters, compelling story, sublime score and in-depth lore, all with a family-friendly presence to boot. I'd recommend this show to anyone and everyone that is a fan of drama, comedy, action and romance genres. I also should speak for the nostalgic roots this show has for not only myself, but for countless others before me. A great deal of us grew up with this show on Nickelodeon, and it honestly has been aging relatively well since its debut. This is truly a show that parents can bring to their kids, sport the phrase "this is what mommy and daddy grew up with," and have them love it to all heaven and back. Now that I've gone and given a heartfelt speech about this phenomenal piece of media, DO NOT BUY THIS ON THE GOOGLE PLAY STORE IF YOU CARE ABOUT VIDEO QUALITY. If you have other means of getting invested in this show, such as DvD box set or other internet-related streamings and/or purchases, by all means take any other door but this one. However, if you don't mind tolerating atrocious video quality and gruesome pixelated horrors, by all means go ahead and buy the series via this platform.
