I am finding it really hard to watch the original series. I have tried a few times. Each time I get further, but I just cannot seem to keep watching. I don't know if it is because I just watched seed or if the animation is just that bad. I might be able to sit through the movie trilogy though. Do the movies do a good job of summing up the show or is it a major pass?

The Movie Trilogy is good if you don't want to watch the whole series. It dumps a lot of the filler stuff, but has the primary points covered. Keep in mind, the Movie Trilogy is ONLY subbed, so if you are the kind of person that only watches dubbed, you're SOL. (Not saying you are, but there are people out there like that, who won't watch subbed at all.) If you're not used to the early anime art style, though, that could be a big part of the problem also, and you even mentioned that, so I would guess that's part of the issue here.

Untrue, there is a dub of the movie trilogy.

It is however, horrible even by Gundam dub standards and is only good for watching for comedy value (there's a reason more recent releases do not include it).

Ah, okay, my bad. I was basing my statement on what I had seen to be currently (and readily) available versions. I have the boxed set with MSG Movie Trilogy, 08th MS Team: Miller's Report, and CCA, and the MSG Trilogy is sub-only.

It's a major pass in the grading area, just watch the movies; they're worth their weight in salt.

Kira took too many risks, didn't always know what he was doing and always cried. But he was kind. He was a nice guy!

I thought the art direction and character design was kind of off putting, but it looks just fine in motion.

MSG Movie Trilogy dub is bad, but in the so bad it's good way. British Bright is the best Bright.

I actually have the MSG trilogy dub on VHS still, it was my first ever experience with Gundam.

Anyway, I say go for it TC.

Thanks guys! I just got the trilogy in the mail. I think mine is only subbed though. I just got into anime too so I haven't really ever watched anything that's only subbed. Hopefully it will turn out well.
