As part of a random DVD spree, I discovered Mutant X on the bottom shelf lost in amongst Star Trek collections and Farscape fragments.
I hadn't really heard of the series before, only perhaps in name and only the concept of mutants through Marvel's all-too-similar "X-Men" comics.
I'm sad to say the premise for Mutant X is almost as weak as the plot and acting. I find myself rather fuzzy as to how such a broad range of people are new mutants. That and Shea (Adam) can never step out of the role of Lex Luthor in the New Adventures of Superman.
I agree with another reviewer about Eckhart (the major doppelganger of the series), he's a lovable villain of sorts.
It's at this point I have to stress how 'camp' I found the whole series. This is in no way a bad thing, I like a cheesy series as much as the next 'got nothing to do' person, but don't expect a stirring plot similar to Alias, or even the humour of Buffy in this series.
Much to my dismay I found Victoria Pratt (I didn't know her name before this) from the hideous series 'Cleopatra [2025?]' is a main character. All she seems to do for the first two DVDs of the series is pout, or smile wryly and prance about a bit in leather feigning defensiveness of her 'pride' (she's a feral...you'll know if you watch).
All in all I was disappointed with the implementation of the powers too. Brennan spends far too much time rubbing his wrists together like an elemental cricket, whilst Emma must get whiplash from all the "telempathic glaring" [again, see it to know what I mean].
I've not seen the later episodes, having only the first two volumes. It's no blockbuster series, but for the laughability I'd still say to pick it up as it may even deem itself worthy of watching more than once.
