2 episodes per disc...I'll pass

"Mutant X Vol. 1 is an all too typical ADV job--a few episodes per disc with an exorbitant price tag (compared to other titles). Andromeda and Farscape at least have 3-4 episodes per set, not great by any means but far better than 2! And besides the cost, think of the clutter that the entire season will entail in terms of shelf space.ADV will only change their format and offer their licensed series by season sets instead of a couple of episodes if consumers respond. I know that I will. There are lots of good alternatives--Buffy, Angel, Hercules, X-Files, Xena, La Femma Nikita, Star Trek, etc.--all available here at Amazon in season sets."
Too Much Money

"I love Mutant x. I have been a real fan from day One. I love the characters and the whole theme. I started buying these episodes but they are too much money for 2 episodes. True the commentaries are cool, but Don't expect too many extras. I expected more from the extras than I got. It would be good to have some interviews with the people behind the characters. Is that too much to ask. I recommend the show but the dvd's leave a lot to be desired."
Shees.... TOO MANY DVDs

"I wanted to buy this series of DVDs, but 11 DISKS!!!! $17.98 a piece with 2 episodes on each!! What marketing genius did this? Is this a ploy to get more money? Quite honestly, the show isn't good enough to spend that much money!!
Don't get me wrong... I did enjoy watching the show in its weekly run. Was it the writing? NO. Was it the creative concept? NO. Was it the effects? NO. Was it the storyline? NO. Was it the fact that Victoria Pratt is (in my opinion) the hottest girl on the planet? (embarrassed) yeah... probably.
The first season is pretty cheap and uninventive. Lacks originality. Was without question a ripoff of the Xmen. The powers the main characters enjoy were pretty dull compared to Wolverine, Cyclops, Iceman, Storm and Rogue.
Unfortunately, the fact that Victoria Pratt is flat out beautiful couldn't save this show, and I hope that she hangs onto a career and returns in something better. Lauren Lee Smith is actually a good actress and she deserves better too.
Bottom line though... if they had released these DVDs in a more sensible box set, I would have most likely, foolishly parted with my money. BUT $198 + S&H on all 11 disks, is far far far too much to spend on the first season of this show. Not to mention, buying all 11 disks from Marketplace sellers + S&H would be a pain in the rear.
I'm a sucker for a pretty face, but NOT THAT MUCH OF A SUCKER..."
Bad, just bad...

"I haven't seen anything beyond this first disc, and after seeing the first two shows I don't want to, either.The other reviewers say that it gets better in seasons 2 and 3, but it has not where to go but up. The special effects are terrible, the writing is sterile, and the lines are delivered stiffly. The characters are not remotely available, except a little bit for the girl who can read minds. All in all just a terrible show. And this is coming from a scifi fan who absolutely loves XMen - both in concept and for the actual movies.If you want to take a chance that the show gets better and want to start at the beginning - have at it. Otherwise avoid this clunker at all costs."
