Yup sorry - the version I have of 20 is the bootleg; watchable but certainly not great quality as far as video or subs (though at least somewhat understandable). I could rip/reupload that version somewhere but it looks like you found a better version.

Heh...I'm an American, but most of my favorite actors end up being English: - Matt Smith (11th Doctor) - David Tennant (10th Doctor) - Christopher Ecclestone (9th Doctor) - Hugh Laurie (House MD) - Alan Cumming (Tin Man Miniseries on Sci Fi; I think he's actually Scottish) - Patrick Stewart (Star Tr...

You know, it's funny. I've only watched the pilot of the 60's so far and not other episodes, but I know the energy refilling scene you're talking about, and I remember distinctly thinking "Wow - they'd never get away with that in today's animation." And then I started to think about why. Somewhere a...

Hmmm...interesting. I've only watched it once so far, but in the 80's series, I'm pretty sure it's explained it is a robot car and accidents aren't *supposed* to happen, but it did nonetheless. I'm paraphrasing, but my impression at the time was even though it's a technology driven society, technolo...

Cuz I was an idiot and not thinking and this is the username I use for a lot of things (e-mail, etc); not usually forums tho! Sadly it can't be changed. (I could create a new account but figured the benefit's not that great.)

Both Doctor Who and Astro Boy (the original series of both) aired the same year - 1963. ^.^ The Doctor has been my favorite hero since 2005, even before I found Astro this year, and now the two of them share that spot! (I can quite easily imagine the two of them meeting, actually.) This is one episo...

Also, an option for some: I noticed Astro Boy is available on Amazon Unbox, an online streaming site from Amazon.com. You can rent it for $3.99 or buy it for $14.99 (slightly higher costs for the HD version). Devices like Roku or TiVo's, as well as some TV's, support this service, and you can watch ...

:lol: :lol: :ninja: The Blu Ray is beautiful! I feel the sound is far better than what we had at the theater. And the Picture seems to have more detail. This is just the best Astroboy production ever! :w00t: The Extras are great! There is extra animation also as everyone knows by now! It'll all be ...

Astrogirl91, unfortunately, Blu-Ray discs cannot be played on DVD players at all as they use a much tinier data format (read with a blue laser instead of red) that only a Blu-Ray player can read. (Blu Ray players, can, however, still play DVD's). It could be the Blu Ray shipments came in sooner than...
