"I remember this show was pretty good. I liked X-Men and, though some saw this as a rip off of that franchise, it still was something different. I kind of wished they'd made them natural mutants like in the Marvel universe. But then I suppose they wouldn't have had thier super bad villians Genomex.
I was VERY excited to learn that this show was going to be released on dvd. That was until I found out they were releasing many dvds with a few episodes and a high price to each. That sucked. But now I just learned from tvshowsondvd.com that there was a boxed set coming out. Then I came here to Amazon and found it true! Yay! Only forty bucks for this set? THAT I can handle! As soon as I have some extra cash, this set will be mine!
Not the best sci-fi show out there. But it wasn't the worst either. Sadly this show didn't come back for a fourth year. Maybe some other station will pick it up. Look at the shows Sci-Fi Network has picked up and made into hits. While I'm not a completely dedicated fan to this series (I didn't see every episode and, out of the three seasons I probably saw less than 10% of them) I still would like to see it continue.
My main point is this: If you are a fan of X-Men or Fantastic Four or Avengers or Teen Titans or Justice League (or any other story where there are super powered humans and things of the like) this show is for you."
Powerful to the core - This is gravely underestimated

"Alluring , original larger than life characters.Aderenline pumping , heartstopping action. Intruiging mysteries intermingled with drama , light hearted bantering and romance. A complex gripping plot.Brilliantly choreographed fights. Fantasy and aci-fi rolled into one with the modern world as the backdrop this series is the very epitome of creativity and ingenuity.
I am astonished how people manage to watch the monotonous 'reality t.v shows' that are anything but real.How those shows claim the acclaim to fame I'll never know.Some of it is so clearlt scripted that you have to wonder if the people who watch turn a blind eye on purpose.But I digress...
As I was saying , it is beyond me how shows like that can flourish when such a brilliant series gets almost no publicity or courage.This is actually the only show in television that can rival with the grand scope of farscape. Most people think of it as an X-men spin off , but don't be fooled by the marvel stamp of approval.This is far superior to X-men in all forms and better than most sci-fi movies made today.Beacuse unlike them , it has a great storyline to go with its special affects.
There is shalimar , the fiery 'feral' whose mutancy involves the physical prowess and abilities of a feline.She can leap great distances.Twist and turn with acrobatic ease and is a polished martial artists.
Then there is smart Jesse , a molecular. He can control his state going from translucent to as hard as steel in mere seconds.He can walk through walls, render bullets harmless among many things.He also acts as the computer specialist for the group.
Then there is decieving, gentle Emma.A psyonic she can manipulate and influence peoples minds.(I especially like how the show takes this 'over used' power and uses it in new ways unlike anything charles xavier ever used).She can project images to make her appear to eb soemone else.Make mental blocks and sense through many realms.
And then there is cocky Brennan.An elemantal , he can control and wield lightning as well as being a very good martial artists .He can get past almost any security.Break into cars , and even instantly kill anyone who gets in his way.
Led by Adam kane, a brilliant scientist in their mountain fortress sanctuary, they fight against genomex.The creators who gave them there supernatural gifts, and made outcats of them and many others.Together they must help other mutants and stop Gbriel ashlocke.A mutant who has the powers of every type of mutant.
Give this amazings series a chance.It is as great as it sounds."
The Best Sci-Fi Series Ever!

"I have never seen such a great combination of magic, martial arts, pure action, great story lines, and awesome characters all in one series! This is by far my favorite television show!
This a great set! Quality packaging, cast interviews and biographies, character profiles, hilarious outtakes, and behind the scene footage make this a worth-while purchase!
Now that Season 1 is here, I can't wait for Seasons 2 & 3!
I am still keeping the faith that Season 4 will go into production soon! Believe it or not, there is still hope!"
Fun; but lack of character development

"Mutant X season one ends where it should have started - with the possibility of a strong nemesis for the Mutant X team. While the season one foe was constant, he only had 3 lines, was it, that he got to repeat for every episodes. The Mutant X characters only began to grow as an ensemble and with personalities in the last few episodes. Perhaps the authors thought action-only would hold the storylines. There was also much greater possibility for moving the storylines a bit deeper. Compare this with another sci-fi type show, say ... Angel, there is action, but there is not the care for the characters that Angel had. I hope that further seasons will reveal better writing and character work."
