X-Men Series Episode 1

Max Headroom, Ace Ventura, and Freddy Kruger all rolled into one!

Before there was X-Men…there was Generation X! For fans of the X-Men who had grown up watching the cartoon and reading the comics there would be a long wait, until 2000, for the X-Men to grace the silver screen in a big budget epic, but first in 1996 FOX aired the TV movie Generation X, a pilot for a TV series that never happened. Based on X-Men spin-off comic of the same name, Generation X sees a new group of superpowered teen mutants attending Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters, here run by Emma Frost and Banshee, both featured characters in this summer’s X-Men First Class! Starring Matt “Max Headroom” Frewer as the evil dream manipulating scientist Russel Tresh, is this inauspicious start for the X-Men something all fans should track down, or is it best forgotten like a bad dream? Listen to find out!
