"This video is the first 3 episodes of the new series.. It introduces most of the characters, and gives good insight into the younger years of the X-Men. I would reccomend it to all fans, over the original animated series."
If you liked the X-Men movies, you should love this

"It's certainly true that X-Men: Evolution is toned down in terms of violence. It's aimed more for PG-13, not R as the other rater seems to want.But it's still an excellent show, and anyone who can enjoy the movies should certainly enjoy the animated series. If you hated the movies due to inaccuracies with the comic books then you won't like this series either. The characters in the series are nearly identical to the ones from the movies, with the exception of Nightcrawler. In the movies, he was blue and covered with self-inflicted tattoo scarring. In the series he's blue, fuzzy and lighthearted. Wolverine, Cyclops, Xavier, Magneto, etc, are characters you'll be immediately familiar with from the movies.Is this a show intended to capture the attention of X-Men comic book loyalists? Probably not.It's a show about a group of young people coming into mutant powers who find themselves thrust into the role of superhero.... or supervillian, depending on if they chose to join the X-Men or ally with Magneto. The animation style is colorful and contemporary, the voice acting is excellent, there's enough action and laughs to entertain the younger crowd and enough character development and plotline to keep an older crowd entertained as well. It's X-Men in a format friendly enough for primetime. The character interactions are much richer than you typically find in animated superhero shows and it's just an all around great show.Like any book (or comic book) converted to film, don't get so hung up on what got changed or "left out" and this will be a series you can really enjoy.Also, check out the boxed set which has all of season 1."

"Can't go wrong liking this new series from Marvel. Not exactly true to the comics, but who needs to hear the same stories again and again? This is all new good stuff and worthwhile to get hooked on. It got me back into X-Men and Marvel again. Beautiful nearly-like-anime art and animation too, buy this for the perfect audio and picture quality and just because it has Nightcrawler in it. If they didn't have NC in this series, it would flop like a dead fish. All hail to the fuzzy German elf!:) Don't miss the 2nd season coming out in Sept and the comic as well!"
This show is so wonderful!

"I found this show acidently on the telly, the first thing that caught my eye was the animation. It is splendid and adorable! you dont lose any of the chaceters you love, but theres a new twist to some of them that make it really enjoyable for even us old comic-book fans! For you Nightcrawler lovers look no futher! it doesnt get any elf-yer then this. really a great show and more then worth buying for your everday enjoyment!
