    What did you think of it?

    I thought it was alright, for a kid's show. I was disappointed that they made Mattimeo after Redwall, that was considered one of the worst books by most readers. Anyway, I think they were gonna do Martin the Warrior after Mattimeo, but I don't know if they did. They stopped showing Redwall locally here. I wouldn't mind seeing Redwall out on DVD though, as long as it's cheap.

    yeah, it was ok, I agree with Arin bout the hares. Then again, I just love the hares all the time! Man, I could sure go for some shrimp 'n hotroot soup right now, mmmmmm, and some fizzy cordial.

    The only thing I didn't like was that the voices weren't that great.

    No, the ones in the audio version (the one with BJ as Narrator and Foremole) were great, though!

    I love the books (easy read though), but hate the show. Somehow hearing the mole speech and Hare dialect (lol) on tv made it sound stupid. Loved it in the books though.

    Somehow they'er.....different. but I can't put my finger on what that difference is.

    I thought the series of books was great, I rented the Redwall movie though, didnt even bother to finish it, thats how bad I thought it was. In my opinion, bad acting, bad illustrating. Killconney the ferret was unidentifiable to his species. Plus Methuselah didnt even die like he did in the books. It was so corny. :stupid:

    I used to watch the Redwall animated series and thought it was pretty good! There seemed to be alot of sub-plot, unfortunately i never read the books

    I watched a few episodes, and I thought it was pretty weak. I've been a Redwall fan for five years, and I love the books! But I read them for all the action mixed with alot of details that make it special. The tv show was on PBS Kids or something, so they had to take all the violence out, and squeeze it into a few 30-minute episodes. Isaac, I'm glad you enjoyed them more than I. If you like the television series, you should really read the books. They're about ten times better.
