  • The x-Men are kidnapped by an alien named Mojo, and they are forced to do his television show in Mojovision.

    1.0
    This is the worst episode of X-Men, I'm a new fan of the series and this was really a surprise. To see an episode so bad that makes me turn off the television, or must i said "Mojovision"



    Even worse are the errors! Jubilee supposedly don't is in this episode, but that wasn't a barrier to see it in the cage were the X-Men was. Just when Cyclops and Storm were send into the program and the cage stops, there it is! Jubilee... :S



    The story is really stupid and there's nothing funny about Mojo, i can assure that this is the worst X-Men episode. I don't know who is responsable for this but SHAME ON YOU!moreless
  • An episode everyone should skip.....

    1.0
    EXTREMELY painful to watch.Do not watch this episode under any circumstance!This episode just ruined everything from me.The whole x-men universe is all messed up now.Who the hell is this mojo guy!??!?! Who are all these aliens and monsters who just watch tv?

    I really dont know what to say about the episode.There was no story!The x-men get 'kidnapped' and are forced to star in action shows of their own.There are allusions to other shows such as star trek but its not funny at all.It was just plain booring.

    I went on the website and saw this episode having a rating above 6.This made me sign up,write a review and bring down the rating to its deserved value.

    They should make more episodes about apocalypse and sinister...like where did they come from...what exactly do they want to achieve?

    There really wasn't an point of this episode.........moreless
  • What the hell is this?

    6.9
    A show producer named Mojo is frustrated that his show, starring a guy named Longshot, isn't really producing results. So he ditches Longshot, and forcefully recruits the X-Men. The first two who were a victim of Mojo's cruel gameshow are Cyclops and Storm. They are being chased by a couple of helicopters, and were overwhelmed. Beast and Rogue were next, who were pitted in the depths of space against another battleship. They too fell. Jean and Wolverine were the last, but thanks to Jean's mutant powers, she was able to disrupt the control room. They were finally free. Meanwhile, Magneto and Xavier run into Magneto's old citadel.



    Kind of boring episode, I was laying my head down, wondering why I'm even watching this episode. None of the survival scenes between the X-Men were really exciting, and there was no excitement of build up. There was no build up, really no excitement, and the conclusion felt cliched. You wonder why Jean wasn't able to end the situation much earlier.moreless
  • meh, it was ok You can watch it here: http://watch-wolverine.com/index.php?ep=24&show=xmen

    4.5
    Didn't like the way this odd new world comes out of nowhere and then disappears at the end of the episode. Then again, this is a cartoon and isn't supposed to make too much sense lol



    If you want to see the full episode head over to:

    Longshot seems like an interesting character and since I've already seen all the seasons of this I know he appears in another episode in a later season. But anyways, the episode wasn't bad but nothing special either.



    I would rate it a 5/10 for this reason. hmm need 100 words damn this is hard. Screw Flandersmoreless
  • Best Episode Ever

    9.0
    Mojovision takes a few of the X-men and have them go to alternate worlds. From there they go into challeges and fight their way out of the shows. First is Cyclops and Storm's challenge in Miami Mutants where they fight off some cyber ploice, they did their best but got beated than the get prison in mirrors. Than came Rogue and Beast in Rogue Star where Rouge is the star and Beast is her sidekick. Rogue pilots a ship which Beast gets freak out. Just when they thought they got out of danger, their ship gets send to the sun. Rogue does her best to drive the ship away from the sun but gets caught by the brood as they restrain her. Beast comes to save her but the brood restrain him as well which Beast got furious and starts to throw them, than a third brood attacks him and stunned him. Things got worse for them as the air hatch open pulled everyone out side. Beast grabs hold of Rogue and lifts her back in but falls into deep space which you know what would happen if you breath in space. With that Rouge was left behind as she dies in the crash to the sun. With that Rouge and Beast became prisoners inside the mirrors. Now comes Wolvirne and Jean in I Dream of Jean where they fought robots and The Punshier who is my favorite. At the end, the X-men were saved by Longshot. We get to see Sheena the She Devil in the ending episode where she gets capture Sauron. What an epic episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (11)

    • Gambit only appears through old footage that Mojo watches, and has no lines. Jubilee also briefly appears with no lines.

    • Jubilee can be seen trapped with Wolverine, Rogue, Jean Grey and Beast. Even though she was not part of the group that got teleported to Mojo's world. She also disappears later, and then does not appear for the remainder of the episode.

    • This episode features the first appearances of Mojo, Spiral, and Longshot (who'll all next appear in season 5's "Longshot"), and Shanna the She-Devil & Sauron.

    • The women putting makeup on Longshot are Dazzler (who'll get darker hair when she makes her first true appearance in next season's "The Dark Phoenix (1): Dazzled") and what appears to be Ricochet Rita (whose alternate universe self is Spiral).

    • The creatures who hatch on board the "Rogue Star" appear closer to the comic version of the Brood, who will later make their first appearance in season 4's "Love In Vain" (after much censor-alterations.)

    • In Longshot's opening credits sequence, N'Garai demons, Psylocke, and the Super-Adaptoid make cameos.

    • The robots which become the simulated heroes in "I Dream Of Jean" resemble modified versions of the Marvel hero War Machine. The forms they take on are of Marvel Comics anti-hero The Punisher, and Shi'ar Imperial Guard members Quake, Gladiator and Tempest.

    • Among the endless array of aliens in Mojo's television arena, are a Skrull, Mad Thinker's Awesome Android, and a white-suited Jack Kirby.

    • When Jean is shot at by the Punisher, the blast repeats itself.

    • Rogue wasn't with the X-Men when they were captured from the television store, but somehow she's with them when they're teleported to Mojoworld.

    • The credits for "Rogue Star" misspelled Beast's last name as MaCoy.

  • QUOTES (8)

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (10)

    • The Rogue Star episode, with Rogue and Beast in a ship are being counterparts of Han Solo and Chewbacca from the Star Wars movies: Humans(Han Solo and Rogue) Hairy Mammals (Beast and Chewbacca).

    • TV: Rogue Star
      The series Rogue and Beast are forced to star in is based partially on the original "Star Trek", among other outerspace sci-fi adventures.

    • TV: Miami Mutants
      The series Storm and Cyclops are forced to star in is a parody of the 1980s action/drama program "Miami Vice", which was about two cops in Miami.

    • Bottle: Mojo's Antacid
      The pink colored antacid Mojo drinks to calm his stomach is a reference to the famous brand known as Pepto-Bismol.

    • Mojo: Can we talk?
      "Can we talk?" was a catch-phrased used often by talk-show hostess Joan Rivers.

    • Beast: Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely... as seems evident.
      Beast quotes Lord Acton, who made that statement in an 1887 letter to Bishop Mandell Creighton.

    • Mojo: Bubbee! Bubeleh!
      Those words, which Mojo would tend to call Cyclops or Longshot when trying to get in their good graces, are affectionate Yiddish terms of endearment, commonly associated with Hollywood-types who butter up actors by calling them that.

    • Mojo: I give it two flippers up!
      "Two thumbs up" was the ratings-system for film critics Siskel & Ebert on their syndicated movie review series.

    • Mojo: Wolverine starring in...
      Mojo's voice when introducing "I Dream of Jean" is in the style and mannerisms of variety show host Ed Sullivan.

    • TV: I Dream of Jean
      The series Jean and Wolverine are forced to star in is based on the 1960s sitcom "I Dream Of Jeannie", about an astronaut and his personal genie.
