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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mutant X: Season 1 Sept. 8 2010
By Eddy B TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mutant X: Season 1

I really enjoyed this TV series and would give it a four star rating, BUT these new 4-6 `clipped-stacked' Alliance Films releases are really getting me `bugged' off. I've purchased over the last year Seasons of BeastMaster, Lexx, Earth: Final Conflict, RoboCop, Outer Limits: The New Series, PSI: Factor, Mutant X and all but a few have had at least two to all six discs loose in the case with scratches after opening them. I realized what's the use of returning them for exchange, as it will continue to happen again. The packing gets a one star rating and also because of my following note below, I can only give this Alliance Films release at best a three star overall rating. ALSO PLEASE NOTE: this new re-release of Mutant X: Season 1 on Alliance Films IS NOT in Anamorphic Widescreen (only Full Screen, with the sides cut off the Widescreen version) and DOES NOT contain the great BONUS FEATURES that were both available on the original A.D. Vision release. At least it does contain both English & French soundtracks not available on the original release.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite sc. fiction show EVER!! Nov. 27 2008
Format:DVD
I have to say...I agree on the point that this show didn't get the attention it sould have had. Of ALL sc. fiction shows that runs on air those days, none of them got me like that. Mutant x is not just about sc.fiction, it's got heart. U actually really feel for the caracters as they show us each of them getting to know who they are better and evolving among each others and with each others...Friendship, family and romance gets as much of the screen as the action and adventure and it's always entertinning to watch. Give it a try!!

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad I couldn't watch more than one episode! Aug. 27 2011
By fled
Format:DVD
I was looking for a new tv show to watch. I was attracted by the X-men theme, but I had never heard about
Mutant X. Now I know why! The acting is bad, the music sounds like cheap techno music. Too much use of slow motion,
the editing is bad and the special fx are cheesy! I barely got to the end of the first episode! Final review: DO NOT BUY THIS!

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally! All Of Them Together! Sept. 30 2004
By Jason Bales - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars The show that redeems itself! May 13 2005
By Fantasy Lore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
After the first 2 episodes (if you haven't seen this show before, like I hadn't until this DVD First Season Set) there's no way you're going to believe me when I tell you this is a solid, entertaining and stylish show. It's impossible to put your finger on any one bad feature at the start of this series centring on a world of new mutants, because EVERY aspect of their introduction is hideously embarrassing and laughably poor in its execution (Shalimar's pouting being the least of the troubles). Something I must mention though- the special effects that illustrate some of the mutant powers are very poor and funny when they're not supposed to be. Trust me- you'll firmly believe within only a few minutes of the first episode that the only basis for this show is the `X-Men' comics and a group of below average actors who happened to have some spare time between waitressing at Starbucks and auditioning for ketchup commercials (I can't begin to comment on the writing!). But from episode 3 onwards, EVERYTHING comes together and `Mutant X' comes into its own. It's so surprising and actually quite admirable how the producers, actors and writers managed to turn around in a considerably short space of time what could have been an absolute disaster had it continued in that same painful, vein of those initial episodes. From awful to gripping in the blink of an eye, I guarantee and from then on things only get better, episode by episode, consistently excellent in my view until the finale of the season.

Admittedly, even at its height, `Mutant X' remains Saturday afternoon, somewhat forgettable television (although probably a great show for all the family) and so does not come close to the enduring brilliance of shows like `Alias', `Firefly' or `Dark Angel', or to other programmes geared to a somewhat more young-adult and above audience, but there are comparisons to be drawn from those shows. The fight scenes in `Mutant X' (I risk saying) are even better than the fight scenes in `Alias', the exploration of minorities in society and the importance of coming to celebrate everyone's uniqueness is an improvement on the similar issues at the heart of `Dark Angel' and the special effects (even the mutant powers before too long) are incredibly visceral and compliment the action very well and come to rival those of `Firefly'. But what this show in its own right manages impressively and effortlessly is to convey a unique message to its audience in each episode. I would say that redemption is the key to the season as a whole- Mason Eckhart (the baddie) remains the unredeemable character- while all others are neither white nor black, but somewhere in between...even the members of our band of injustice-fighting heroes, which is refreshing.

I was also reminded of cult programmes like `La Femme Nikita' (which shares a producer with M-X) and `Deep Water Black' (named differently in the U.S. I think), but this show has a tone all of its own, which again you'll find hard to believe after the first two episodes, which fail miserably in setting up a convincing world for these gifted characters. Some good points to convince you it's definitely not all bad- the sets and the locations in `Mutant X' are SPECTACULAR, there are twists and turns in many of the stories that you won't see coming and aren't predictable for even the most jaded fan of the genre, and whether a new feature of this DVD or something the show already possessed- it has a slick, stark and quite beautiful look (in one episode I thought I had the martial arts film `Hero' in my DVD machine by mistake- that good people!).

By episode (10), I wanted to write this review to extol the virtues of `Mutant X', but I held off until I'd watched all 22 episodes just in case it took a turn for the worse and descended into the car-crash-horror of the first two introductory episodes, but thankfully it remained enjoyable, fresh, classy television all the way through. An extremely shaky start, but well worth your time and money.

Also...regarding this DVD package...the extras are numerous and appealing- tons of outtakes and the commentaries are great, while the plastic case is cheap but functional and the menus are quite attractive and very easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Sci-Fi Series Ever! Jan. 4 2005
By Jacque Wilhelm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars fun; but lack of character development Feb. 24 2006
By Todd W - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.
