Then came the movies. Loved Hugh Jackman and his portrayal. Like clockwork, though, Wolverine starts taking more precedence in the sequels until we get to X3: Wolverine guest starring the X-Men.
When they announced "Wolverine and the X-Men", I thought "at least they're up front about it." Really, I didn't care to watch the rest of the X-Men play second string to Wolverine yet again. It was purely by chance that I saw one of the first episodes on TV and decided, grudgingly, "this thing ain't bad". Then I started to actually enjoy it.
Yes, it's got tons of Wolverine. About 1 in 5 episodes are either completely Wolverine solo episodes (i.e. no other X-Men) or close enough not to matter (token tag along who does little). Naturally, he can't be the runt he is in the comics, but at least he's shorter than one or two characters. (Can't have the star be shorter than the ladies, can we?) He's nigh infallible, the one who even the bad guys fear, greatest X-Man who ever lived, blah, blah, blah. Big freakin' hypocrite too. Scolds Cyclops like an overbearing dad for taking off on his own in one episode, which directly followed an episode where Wolverine took off on his own (but that's okay, 'cause he's the tortured loner). Sounds like I kinda hate it after all, don't it?
Despite all that, there's good storytelling going on here. Some entertaining takes on established characters and storylines, multiple plot lines evolving through the episodes.Read more ›
At first I really wasn't thrilled with this show, but it grew on me. I am not a big Wolverine fan either(In fact I'd love to see an x-Men shjow without him) But this is still really good. MUCH Better than "Evolution", but not quite as good as Fox's X-Men from the 1990's. Still this is a fresh look at the characters. What impresses me most is the price and availability of this DVD. All U.S. fans that dont want to spend upwards of $60-$80 to get this eventually on 6 individual DVD's probably by summer of 2010, can just get it all NOW for about 1/2 the price (and even see episodes Nickelodeon hasn't aired yet!). It dosen't have any of the commentaries, but they are boring anyway, so you are really not missing anything by getting this.
Sooo, when we found out our neighbors to the north already had the entire series available on region 1 DVD, we pounced. Seriously, it's not just an everyday animated series. The complexity of the story arcs are worthy of an adult series, but you can still watch it with young kids.
For those who are not fully acknowledged with the characters, it can be a bit puzzling, but it still is very enjoyable.
