Review:

Now available to own on DVD for the first time is the hit Netflix series DreamWorks Turbo FAST: Season One, featuring all 26 episodes on a 3-disc set.

Based on the  2013 computer-animated film Turbo, Turbo FAST is given a 2D look (animated by Titmouse). Episode One (Crazy Fast) picks up shortly after events of the movie, where the world's fastest snail, Turbo (voiced by Reid Scot) arrives in the snail city that his human friend, Tito (voiced by Amir Talai), built. All of his snail family (including his brother, Chet (voiced by Eric Bauza)) and his friends are there.

Inside the city, there's a cool racetrack for Turbo and his racing pals Whiplash (voiced by John Eric Bentley), Burn (voiced by Grey DeLisle-Griffin), Skidmark (voiced by Amir Talai), White Shadow (voiced by Michael Patrick Bell), and Smoove Move (voiced by Phil LaMarr) to use. Of course Turbo is the fastest snail in the city, but his reign is challenged when a Tiger Beetle named Hardcase challenges him to a racing duel.

The episodes on the three-disc set are:

While DreamWorks Turbo was a cute computer-animated film, it wasn't that big of a box-office draw in 2013; causing the studio to lose nearly $16 million dollars after all the promotion that was put out for it. That being said, I believe everyone was surprised when Turbo FAST was announced and that it would drop the computer-animation for a more traditional 2D look. The voice-cast has been replaced, but it's hardly noticeable. Besides from the first episode, Crazy Fast, and Turbo Drift, all the episodes features two 11-minute adventures. At first I was a little skeptical about the series, well, that is until I watched the first episode. Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed it as much as the original movie. Overall, all the episodes on the Turbo FAST: Season One are fast-paced and crazy fun to watch.
