    Is this series good?
    What's your opinion on it?
    I'm going to watch it soon. Will I be content or disappointed?

    Good?

    No.

    It's fucking great. I think there's a solid argument to be made for it being one of the ten greatest animated series ever, foreign or domestic.

    Ummm... I liked it when it came out, although I was that many years younger when watching. Haven't really seen it as of late. I remember the animation being pretty cool at the time.

    One of my top 5 favorite series EVER! Great stories, great characters; an absolute win.

    Season 3 was a disaster, but you'll likely be in love with the show so much by then you'll hardly notice.

    One of the best, most intricate and complex animated series I've ever seen.



    Just... don't go past Season 2.

    It's one of the best animated series ever, of which I’ve been a fan since the beginning.
    The stories and characters are very reminiscent of Shakespeare's works since the series creator was an English teacher.

    One of Disney's best creations. It's dark, fun and has awesome stories.
    Unfortunately the last season, except for the first 2 or 3 episodes, broke the series mould and looks terrible.

    This reminds me to see if I can find the comics...

    I haven't seen it in awhile but it really was a great show. I actually enjoyed Commander Riker as a villain.

    The VA line-up is amazing. Check out the full roster and you'll see some familiar names showing up in modern Transformers incarnations.

    Utter truth.

    Gargoyles is a brilliant series (again as others have said apart from Season 3: The Goliath Chronicles which was done without the series creator Greg Weisman and is considered non-canon (save for 2 episodes)).

    Overall above average animation for a tv series (a few below that, a few above: "The Edge"), along with truly great characterization and well written stories throughout.

    I've recently be rewatching them on DVD (sadly Season 2 Part 2 still has not been released) and am impressed by the series all over again.

    It's still terrible that they cranked out the "Goliath Chronicles" bullshit instead of going into one of Weisman's new ideas. I've read the background on most of his stuff; Timedancer & 2198 would've been great.


    At least he's got a second chance with the comics...

    it was the best Disney put out at the time. hated how every movie had to have a sitcom (and i meant it that way) and then this pops out of nowhere. good talent for the voices:
    Bulkhead's voice, (can't spell the actor's last name at the moment) Jonathan Frakes, Marina Sirtis (both from ST:TNG) The voice of the animated Spawn is goliath...and it was an overall good project. i think Disney just didn't know what they had and let the QA slip and it died, painfully.

    Amazing series and as others have said, don't go into season 3. Weisman had very little to do with that. However, if you enjoy the series, you should pick up the comic books that SLG is publishing. They take off right where season 2 ended and are written by Weisman, but they take forever and a day to come out.

    It aged very well. This is one of those shows that just becomes timeless in it's appeal.


    Who was almost the voice of Barricade too :lol
