We get a lot of cartoons here at Penguin Comics to review. I had never seen this ZETA PROJECT before. Seems that it's a spinoff of the BATMAN BEYOND cartoon from a couple of years back. Now, the other day at the Compound we had our cable go out. My youngest son, Daniel, wanted to watch something so I plopped this disc in.
He was hooked. He has watched both discs repeatedly.
I decided that the best review would be a little Q&A with Dan The Man.
First, a plot synopsis:

Zeta, a robot programmed by the U.S. government to fight the country’s enemies using weaponry and a holographic self-projector, evolves to the point where he acquires both emotion and a conscience. As the value of human life became evident, he flees the government, who believes he has been reprogrammed by a foreign power. On the run, Zeta encounters Rosalie “Ro” Rowan, a street orphan who is wanted by the law herself. Join Zeta and Ro in The Zeta Project: The Complete First Season as they set out across America to find both Ro’s parents, and Zeta’s creator who can prove the robot is acting of his own free will.

Now onto the review!

Penguin Comics - First, can you tell me what The Zeta Project is all about?
Dan The Man - Its all about a robot that teamed up with Ro.
PC - What was your favorite part of the series?
Dan - The part where Zeta teams up with Batman.
PC - Who was your favorite character in the series?
Dan - Zeta and Batman and Ro.
PC - Was there things in the series that you didn't like?
Dan - No
PC - Was this a series that you liked a lot and why or why not?
Dan - Yes because it had fights and Batman in it.
PC - Would you have bought this with your own money?
Dan - Yes
PC - Was the animation art a good fit for this story?
Dan - Yes because I thought the art was awesome.

This was the most fun review I have done in a while. When I told Dan that he was doing this with me he took it very seriously. So serious that he took the day off of school to write his answers to my questions. I think that him saying that he would spend his own cash to get this one is quite a testament to how good this series is.
