Storyline

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 ...

Goofs

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 »

I love this show.
29 March 2002 | by (Arizona, USA/Hull, England) – See all my reviews

I confess, I am a Reboot junky. I have no clue why I like this show, considering that I'm opposed to the over-used element of CGI in animation today, yet something about Reboot keeps my attention. When I first started watching, I was still in Elementary school and I liked being able to name all the movies the show was doing parodies of. A few years passed and I forgot about it, until the re-runs aired on Cartoon Network. Then, the plot/new episodes became more dramatic and I couldn't stop watching! The characters are likable and the battle between virus and guardians is a great hook. Someone once said, "Reboot is what Tron should have been".
