What They Say


The Review!
The third of four boxes, You're Under Arrest TV finally starts hitting the DVD format, causing much rejoicing.

Packaging:
Presented in a nice hard box, similar to the Macross and Orange Road boxes, You're Under Arrest has a nice subtle but slightly flashy looking piece of packaging. The front features the English logo along with the handcuffs in silver set against the grayish blue that the rest of the box is. The spine features the silhouette of our two leads with the box numbering below them while the back features each disc listing and the episode numbers and titles for each volume in the set. The bottom of the box features all of the technical information about the set.

Extras:
Included with the box is an entire disc of extras. This disc is packaged in its own keepcase and features the same layout and designs of the regular series. The artwork used for it is quite nice as they continue to have the super deformed images, this time of more of the cast, including the Chief and Nakajima.

The Behind the Scenes section is broken out the same way as past installments were, with each segment being playable by itself. There?s also a play all feature which is hand. These range from amusing to a bit dull, but I found the piece with the kids particularly great to see, especially since Coastal?s use of kids in the original OVA?s won them quite a bit of acclaim at the time.

The interviews section looks to be quite deep and fixes the problems we had with the hard to hear audio in the previous extras volume. Dub fans, and especially Coastal Carolina fans, are going to love this particular extra as Scott Houle has a 45 minute interview alone, and he goes into a wide range of topics in terms of casting, dubbing and more. A couple of the actors get a 5 or 7 minute interview, but it?s Pam Weidner, who serves as co-director here, gets a nearly 30 minute interview and goes over her background and her side of the You?re Under Arrest gig.

The actor biographies section, again pertaining only to the English cast, has just under eighteen individual pages that are usually a bit tongue in cheek for each of the respective actors but does list some interesting items, such as other works.

The fan art section has a variety of great artwork with some very well done pieces. Unfortunately, I didn?t recognize any of the names as being forum folks here unlike some past art competitions. If you are on there, let me know, I?d love to know what piece you did!
