Episode 3

Published on:

Episode 3 is all about the forgotten YTV/CITV gem ReBoot, the first fully-CGI TV series.

We ask whether ReBoot could be… rebooted, and discuss Dot Matrixes and comparisons to Sliders and Wreck It Ralph.

ReBoot was a Canadian series that originally ran from 1994 to 2001.

Tom was a massive fan growing up when it reached the UK on CITV in the mid-to-late 1990s, but it was cruelly taken off the air mid-season. He didn’t find out what happened next until about 8 years later when he discovered something called BitTorrent…

The series followed the adventures of a Guardian named Bob and his companions Enzo and Dot Matrix, as they worked to keep the computer system of Mainframe safe from viruses and other threats.

Developments since episode: In 2015, a new animated-live action hybrid show titled ReBoot: The Guardian Code launched on YTV and Netflix. And yeah… it wasnt great.

Nerdy obsessions. Drunken ramblings. A nostalgia podcast about TV, film and video games.
Tom and Morgan are two mates who love talking nonsense about pop culture, while also enjoying a beer. We've taken our drunken ramblings from the pub to the studio to teach each other about all kinds of films, TV shows, video games and more. From '80s cartoons to '90s kids shows, action film franchises to cult games, we'll chat about anything remotely geek-related, often with plenty of confusion, bickering and fond nostalgia.
