Ever since my four-year-old son saw Toy Story, he's loved Buzz Lightyear. So, when we got the Buzz Lightyear of Star Command video and saw that there was going to be a television show based off the video, I knew I was going to have to watch it. Even though the Toy Story movies were great, after watching them for the five hundredth time, they got old, so I wasn't really looking forward to the series (even though my son couldn't wait).
When the show premiered, though, I was more than pleasantly surprised. It was good. I actually look forward to my daily dose of Buzz Lightyear. The show is faithful to the Buzz Lightyear franchise, and has plenty of jokes in it that can keep even a grown up entertained and laughing. Plus, there have been plenty of episodes, so I don't see the same ones that often, even though my son watches them every day.
Part of the reason I like this show so much is that Patrick Warburton (David Puddy of Seinfeld fame) plays Buzz Lightyear. He does an excellent job with the character. In fact, I think he does at least as good, if not better, a job as Tim Allen did in the movies. His nemesis, The Evil Emperor Zurg, is played by Wayne Knight (Newman from Seinfeld), and the chemistry is great.
There also have been numerous guest voices, ranging from Eric Idle to Ricardo Montalbán, making the show that much more enjoyable.
The show is great fun, for the whole family.
