From Amazon.co.uk

Mutant X takes the useful SF trope of the mutant minority persecuted by the state and adds potentially interesting spins on which it rarely delivers. After a couple of pilot episodes that pushed into OTT visual stylishness, the show has settled into mildly repetitive though watchable blandness: for the most part it avoids story arcs and a large cast of regulars in favour of plugging its characters into the stock plots of television SF, such as doubles, vengeance crusades and untrustworthy lovers.

On the DVD: Mutant X Series 1, Volume 4 contains the following episodes: "The Lazarus Syndrome". Both Emma and GSA agent Pamela are targeted by Caleb, a vampiric mutant whose kiss drains life force from mutants and who rises again each time he is killed. "Interface". Emma tries to convert her school friend Michelle, a GSA agent and super-hacker; their escape from GSA is easy, perhaps too easy. "Presumed Guilty". A memory-stealing mutant frames Adam for a murder and Eckhart exploits the situation to find out Mutant X's whereabouts. "Ex Marks the Spot". Shalimar's unreliable former lover Zack involves Mutant X in the heist of a Faberge egg in which important genetic code has been hidden. The DVDs also contain trailers and interviews with Michael Shea (Adam) and show runner Howard Chaykin. --Roz Kaveney

Product Description

4.0 out of 5 stars Good escapist family fun 29 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mutant X first aired at the end of 2001. For those unfamiliar with the series it centers around a group of 4 'new mutants' who have been genetically engineered in an attempt to eradicate them of illness, but it's all gone wrong and they've ended up with extraordinary powers [along with numerous other ex patients]. Under the leadership of Adam [their mentor] they battle against the 'evil' Genomex corporation who are trying to get the mutants off the streets.
Rated 15, this 3 series set covers all 66 episodes of TV series and comes in a tin presentation box. Each episode is virtually a stand alone and there is little in the way of continuing plot lines other than the overall storyline plot. Unlike most other programmes there is no swearing and the few sexual scenes are very low key, making this suitable for family viewing although some of the violence can be upsetting for younger viewers.
Overall the series covers a wide range of subject matter from vampires to nano-bot cloning. The overall feel of the series is that its aimed at young teens and lacks the adult darkness of contemporary shows like Dark Angel and the overtly 'sexual' visuals of Mortal Kombat. The acting and settings may not be top notch and sometimes the dialogue can be quite weak but the series is entertaining and covers some complex subjects. The bad guy is a classic baddie who always calls for his henchmen [or hench women?] to solve his problems. Selling for a little over 20, this is a good solid buy, but it won't please everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars X marks the spot 10 Feb 2012
By ZZrider
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a good purchase for those who don't already own the single season sets. Except for the tin box there's nothing too special about this limited edition. I wasn't surprised to find the tin was dented when it arrived. This wasn't due to shipping but poor quality control. The tin is thin and cheap but should hold up to normal handling. I'm still watching the first season and there doesn't seem to be any language or subtitle options. Picture and sound quality are great and it does include some extras. Overall a solid buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mutant X: The Complete Collection, Series 1-3 15 Feb 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Daughters comment:
This is the best series ever made! Its better than the X-Men as it shows better superpowers. The actors are amazingly talented for their age. I wish there was a Season 4. It covers all types of story plots from 'the thing' to 'zombies' etc. The story plots keep you on your toes and the cliff hangers are exceptional!
Overall, a must buy for Marvel Comics Fans or DC Comics fans as the action is better than them all!

Format:DVD
the first episode on this is about a modern day vampire who sucks the life out of new mutants and he is after Emma and GSAgent Pamela who can raise and lower her body temperature. She touches him and freezes him and he appears 2 be dead......
Another episode is about this mutant who can steal a persons memories and he steals Adams memories! The GSA kidnap the memory stealing mutant in order 2 gain acess to muttant x's secret base. This ep also contains a great fight scene between Shalimar and Leena, a snake feral who is also a GSAgent. The extras include episodic trailers of the episodes, an interview with John Shea who plays Adam and an interview with the creators of mutant x.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value 25 Jun 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for ages to get this on DVD but it was always too expensive. Got all three seasons in a limited edition tin for 29.97...WOW!!! 110 in HMV at the time.
Update....I have just started to watch the series and..... aarrrggghhh..... Series one had two disc ones packed instead of a disc one and a disc two. I have managed to replace the missing disc quite easily though. Anyone buying should check all the discs are correct as soon as it arrives to avoid disappointment.
