Interesting... So I guess that means Xros Wars' Japanese music won't be crossing the pond? Well, I'll keep an open mind. I did like Data Squad's dub music.
What else has Saban done?
Hell the very first episode he was close to death.
I love this show and watched it religiously as a kid; and I didn't care that it made me less of a Pokemon fan. I don't know why there was(and still is) a "war" and I don't see them as ripoffs of each other. I don't see anything these shows have in common other than the "mon" in their names. Even their success if different; Digimon tends to produce good anime adaptions, but the games aren't as popular while it's the opposite for Pokemon.
I prefer the dub in both voices and most of it's music. Yes, there were lame jokes thrown in, but that was because of Fox or else there would have no Digimon to show at all. If you can overlook it, the dub is actually very accurate(it did have a few inconsistencies in the early episodes, but they phased out) and one of the few TV dubs back then that wasn't a butchered mess.
My favorite series are Adventure(classic) and Tamers(showed how dark Digimon can be). Adventure 02 was a train wreck that I refuse to consider canon(even Sora and Matt/Yamato getting together wasn't enough to save it). Frontier was wasted potential(I firmly believe it could as good or even better than Adventure). Savers was okay, but could have been better if it had more character development and the final arc hadn't dragged then rushed in the end(Tamers had that same problem). I can't even sit through Xros Wars; it represents every negative thing I despise in shounen combined in a attempt at being a "series". If it were a satire/parody, I'd probably love it. Even the crossover was a terrible attempt at fanservice; it was like watching a bad fanfiction that was full of continuity errors and off characterization(just like most actual fanfiction. How sad). I'm glad they weren't in a rush to dub it; even Japan hated it.
A real gamer is one that plays for fun and enjoys a decent story.

Digimon got off lightly compare to the 90s Spider-Man which had far more strict rules to the point that Spider-Man wasn't allowed to throw a punch.
Furthermore you don't to seem to have any evidence to back this up, so as far I am aware this is hearsay that you could have made up.
It was between episode 50-51.

With that said...
Problem solved! Who wants Chinese?
Xros Wars just won't feel the same without dat OST.
But everything else should be just dandy.

Yeah, I figured as much. Some animes manage to do it, so there might have been a sliver of hope, but Digimon typically does their own music, it seems. Not entirely a bad thing, but it's just too bad there's no English music Digimon OSTs....it was unlikely in the first place, simply for monetary and licensing reasons. It's easier both legally and financially just to have the musical staff (ha ha) on your payroll whip up new music than it is to have to reach across the pond and make contact and license the original BGM.

I used to watch Digimon all the time, but stopped after Season 4. I don't know why, but I just can't get into these new ones.
All credits for BT's Army Against Arrogance Banner goes to Brutaka.
All Credits to Black Terminator's Region Express banner goes to Sworn Metalhead
For the most part, the music was pretty decent in the first three season and wasn't that bad. It's just that they had a bad knack for placing it in the wrong moments at times.
Now please don't mention that silly woman ever again she isn't a "reviewer".
The only one that was any decent was Our War Game.
The best part of the dub movie in my opinion.Personally my favourite is Our War game.
True but they tried and failed anyway. I try not too look to deep into it.I don't since the story didn't make any sense and it was clear to me that there was no connective flow with the plot.
Summer Wars in a great movie and in some ways better than Our War Game even though I love them both. I even own the former on Blu-Ray. Mamoru Hosoda is such a great director.

The point is a valid one, even if the means of expressing it are flawed. These myriad Internet reviewers who populate the video airwaves are considerably more noise than they are anything worth hearing. If you've found one who speaks to your inner self, wonderful, enjoy that. It doesn't make their "reviews" the end-all be-all of any matter, it doesn't automatically make their reviews worth searching for unequiovcally and it certainly doesn't mean they need to be brought up every five posts or so, often by the same people.
