    SYNOPSIS
    While Cluny plans to recapture the tapestry by burning down the Abbey gates, Matthias determines to renew his search for Martin's sword. He must find Asmodeus' hideout. He learns that only the fierce mouse-eating owl, Captain Snow, knows where it is. To ask him Matthias has to pass Julian Gingivere, a marmalade cat and the Shrew of Mossflower Wood! Matthias breaks off the search for the sword to return with his new allies to once again beat off Cluny.



    sounds like the end to me. But the Greeneye family weren't marmalde cats were they?

    But it'll have episodes 7-13, right? Not just one or two or three. . . ?

    At this point it's unknown whether it contains the remaining 7 season one episodes or less. The VHS release, afterall, did drop off from four episodes a tape to two episodes a tape. That said, the remaining 7 episodes are likely. We should know more soon.

    I'll have to get this up on RWTV and the Newsline, though. Thanks for posting about it, Russus.

    Okay, strike that. The DVD will have the remaining seven episodes-- the running time fits. Very good news. Now, if only I could follow this up with a Mattimeo announcement...

    If you could do that, I would fall to my knees and weep with joy.

    I do wonder why it's called "The Next Adventure", if it's the same old adventure? I still don't know why they don't record the entire series in SLP mode on the same DVD? It would work - I tried with one of my taped-off-TV Redwall videos on my DVD recorder, and I was able to fit the WHOLE SERIES on just one DVD. It would also be possible with VHS's. Why do they insist on multiple tapes and DVDs? It kind of splits the episodes up when it's not needed

    "The Next Adventure" is obviously meant to be a continuation of "The Adventure Begins". It may not make much sense story-wise, but it still works.

    I still don't know why they don't record the entire series in SLP mode on the same DVD? It would work - I tried with one of my taped-off-TV Redwall videos on my DVD recorder, and I was able to fit the WHOLE SERIES on just one DVD. It would also be possible with VHS's.

    Quality. Anything you record off of TV on SLP will have terrible quality. It will be watchable, certainly, but the image will be moderately blurred, the sound will deteriorate, and the colors will have a faded look. The more tapespace you take to preserve an image, the better the image will be preserved. That's why SP mode can only record two hours worth of shows while SLP makes it to six-- SP records things in superior quality (Redwall was one of the few shows I cared to record in SP). That's why the videos sold in the store are SP.

    The other half of the matter is that the DVD format is lauded for its perfect picture and sound. The show will have such clarity that you'll be able to see lines in the animation that you might otherwise have missed on the broadcast/video tape. The colors will also be extremely vibrant. An episode on a DVD will be superior to a VHS copy (even one bought at the store) in every way possible. Furthermore, DVDs do not lose their quality every time you play them back.

    Now, to maintain that high quality, you can't jam-pack the DVD. You could, theoretically, stick quite a bit on a single DVD, but somewhere along the way you'd have to start sacrificing the quality and compress the episodes. Generally speaking, the most half hour episodes you can put on a single DVD without having the quality suffer is nine. Finding nine episode discs is extremely rare. In fact, finding six episode discs is rare. The common episode count for animated shows on DVD is three to five. So, we're actually pretty lucky to have the season spread out on only two discs rather than four discs (3-3-3-4).

    Are there any speciaal features on these dvds? It'd sure be nice to see a commentary by Mr. Jacques on one of them.
