  • intoxicating

    i found myself adicted to this show and wanting more.the idea of a free spirited loner having to put himself aside and rase a team from the ashes then send them into battle.i get excited just thinking about this series again.then season two was supposed to A.O.A. i never thought i would get this excited over todays programing.easiy a contender for spectacular spiderman.those two were the best shows in the line up.unfortunatly this series was canceled due directly to low dvd sales.the funding ran out.but marvel/nickolodeon cannot blame the public for that.the dvds were 4 episodes for 10- 15 dollars u.s. i refused to pay that when i knew there would be a complete season 1 eventualy for atleast $20.and i was right.this series could have re written animated tv shows.moreless
  • Why?

    One thing that I may never be able to understand is why such a supremely awesome show as this was cancelled without possibility of a second season. Now I know that it had something to do with inability to work out financing issues with a financing partner, but still. Come on. Think of the kids! This show was SPECTACULAR and it SO didn't deserve to go out before at least a second season was produced. The characters were complex, the girls were hot, and the villains were well developed and not just evil for the sake of it. To me, this show will always rank up there with the original x-men and x-men evolution.moreless
  • It could be worse, but it could have been a lot better.

    I loved the X-men growing up, I liked X-Men Evolution, and I wanted to like this show, so I'm going to be as fair as i can about this Review. Wolverine as a character isn't who he was, in the 80's and the 90's he was always the lone wolf, does what he wants, Stout smelly little Canadian that we all loved. This version is more indicative to this time. He's been made to be a pretty boy, a leader and a bit depressing. essentially he's been tamed, and seems like a shell of what he should be.

    I suppose my problem is simple, they disregard who the characters are. And while writing new stories is acceptable when go from comic to cartoon or film, the characters should be preserved. And its not just Wolverine that has lost who he was, its everyone. I think a few things kinda set you off from the get go on this show. One is the complete removal of Xavier and using him like Zordon of old Power Rangers fame. Its really hard to take the show seriously after that. In all fairness the show does try to have a plot, which is more than you can say for a lot of shows. The voice actors are mostly well cast. The animation is something of a curveball. It looks good at times, and has some very impressive scenes but there are obvious mistakes in every episode. Like the hole in the wall Rogue used to spy on Quicksilver.

    In the end I'd say X-men Evolution had the best animation and story. The original had the best art style and voice acting. What this series brings new to the table is an obvious attempt to be different, while the first season seemed like they were rushing a lot of things; trying to plug to many characters, all the while trying not to let anyone upstage wolverine. It is a flawed but watchable show, I just hope the obsession with wolverine fades a bit over the years, so he can return to his roots.moreless
  • Nick does it again

    Nickelodeon once again proves that good cartoons are not long gone. Wolverine and the xmen is the best incarnation on the x-men. Its a great new story, there is great voice acting, and there is much more enjoyment than the x-men movies. I thought that making wolverine the main focus of the show would spell disaster. However, it isn't as focused on wolverine as i thought. The show just presents wolverine as the leader of the x-men but he doesn't lose any of his character. I was sad when avatar aired the final episode but wolverine and the x-men shows me that there are still great cartoons to come.moreless
  • Finally, SOMETHING decent.

    In a world where television has defenitely gone down the toilet in terms of entertainment, Wolverine is one of the few good shows out there. Now i never saw the 90s cartoon, and i don't remember much about Evolution, but this seems to establish it's own identity as a cartoon, and i like that. Originality is good for once when it's not just copying of the original source material. Now I have a few problems with it. Wolverine seems a bit too soft for me, Cyclops just depresses me, and the whole "ruined future" thing is a bit cliche. But the animation seems fresh, the action is quite cool, the characters are interesting, and overall, it's a good show. I haven't been able to see many episodes, but it does seem like a good show that does not disappoint for anyone who wants a good cartoon.moreless
