Clown: [Spawn has threatened and beat the crap out of some cops who were messing with the homeless people of the alleys] That's it, Spawn, let yourself go. Get pissed. Do some damage. Don't take shit from nobody. And, oh yeah, the big boy downstairs. 'Cause this is how the world ends. Not with a bang but with a lot of blood and torn flesh and broken bones. And I just love it.

Better than Season 2, Not as good as Season 1
6 March 2009 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Spawn was a 3-season long HBO animated series from 1997-1999.I was not there to watch it during it's original run, but I caught maybe one episode on Teletoon years ago.I watched the entire series on youtube about a year ago and I bought the Season 1 DVD.This review is for the third season? Why does it have it's own separate IMDb page? Well apparently, the seasons were combined and made into films for the older DVD's.I am not sure if they make it separate episodes for the new tin-case box-set DVD's.Season 1 was simply amazing, I loved it! Then Season 2 in my opinion was a disappointment.It was good just nowhere near as good as the first.Season 3 improved from Season 2 and came close to being as good as the first season.The series ended in a sort of cliffhanger and never came back, though there is talks for a continuation.You can either by the tin-case DVD set with all three seasons, or you can buy the 3 DVD's which are more like movies.At $6.00 a DVD, it's definitely worth it.The DVD for this season(the old one) has an interview with Todd McFarlane & the cast talking about the show, plus two music videos.One is "Bawbitaba" by Kid Rock and the other is "Play Around" by Lil Cease & Lil Kim.These are kinda random, they have nothing to do with Spawn.The songs are both decent in my opinion, but not great.
