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 ...

User Reviews

A landmark for many other future television series to compare to
9 October 2002 | by (Regina, Saskatchewan) – See all my reviews

Reboot was simply an epic.

The first notorious GCI animated series, deserves nothing more than that. However, Reboot showed a great plot and great characters, not to mention excellent timing for comedic relief from each character throughout each show.

Each season the series developed and evolved into newer and deeper episodes. The third season, really contrasted against the more simplistic approach of the first one.

If you were to watch any episode try one from the beginning, I believe these are the best. It is evident that a lot of time was placed into the story and characters. I mean what a great idea: Inside a computer, with game cubes falling and two viruses, one intellectual and the other chaotic also to cause problems for the citizens of mainframe.

In the end, Reboot didn't gain the success as overly popular titles like the simpsons. Probably because it was aimed to a lower age group, but I think even adults would enjoy this show.

Like I said before, series in the future aiming for this genre will have to compare themselves to Reboot. I mean, Beasties did, and that was great also.... but that's another story all together.
