The extraordinary adventures of life within a computer, as depicted in one of the world's first totally-computer-generated series. The riotous humour, infinitely-variable action and scenery, and intelligent use of every computer reference known, combine to produce a stunning universe where good constantly fights the forces of evil. Dot Matrix and her brother Enzo, plus thousands of friendly binomes, live in Mainframe, which is plagued by viruses Megabyte and sister strain Hexadecimal. Guardian Bob is sent from the Net to protect them, and soon makes it his home. Together, they must prevent Megabyte from taking control of all the systems. As an added complication, games being played by the mystical User invade the system regularly, and must be defeated, or else portions of the city are laid waste... This gives us a chance to see every genre of video-game ever conceived, from the point of view of the characters! When Megabyte finally manages to banish Bob, Enzo takes over as the city's ...

Though ABC canceled the series after two seasons, Mainframe produced a third season (and eventually some TV movies) for Canada which eventually aired on cable in the United States. Without ABC to insist upon stories suitable for young children, the episodes took on darker tones. See more »
It is established early on that simulated time is 10,000 times faster than real time, as the characters use the unit nanosecond like we use the second. Yet, in the one area where the characters interact with the Users (i.e, humans), the games, time passes at a much faster pace while it should be much, much slower. See more »

The computer animation in this is incredible, and way better than "Beast Wars" in my opinion. Actually, "Beast Wars" is really awful in my opinion. But this is about ReBoot - a great kids show with lots of "in jokes". Especially if you are a computer geek, you will get a lot of the computer references. But ReBoot spoofs everything from "Star Trek", to "The Pirates of Penzance" to "Army of Darkness", making it great for adults, as well as kids. Things really started to pick up speed when Enzo "grew up", everyone on the show got more personality, and the show got a much darker feel. Unfortunately, Mainframe Ent. ended the show in the 3rd season and won't be making anymore (with the way the show ended I don't think they could if they wanted to), so if you want to see anymore from Mainframe you will just have to watch Beast Wars (don't though).
