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 ...

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

Hack and Slash's height noticeably changes throughout the series. When they fight Gigabyte, they're shorter than Bob, when Enzo is confronted by Megabyte, they're taller than Megabyte. This isn't possible since Megabyte has always been established as being taller than Bob. See more »

Quotes

Bob: Dot, stay frosty.

User Reviews

Highly Original
9 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

REBOOT was a great example of that rare thing... an intelligent kid's show. Actually it was sufficiently multileveled (and with enough double-entries) to be enjoyed by adults as well.

Some of the early episodes were a bit ropey, but especially from the second season on when they started using clever plot arcs and having more mature plot lines instead of the typical bang-bang-hero-saves-the-day stories, it became unmissable viewing. It didn't avoid not hitting the reset switch at the end of every episode - in only some modern "grown-up" series, such as the various Star Trek incarnations, would avoid a similar temptation.
