MTV wanted to branch out in the 1990s and get away from music programming. In particular, they wanted to produce late night programming for a young adult audience. The result was a collection of animated shows collectively known as Liquid Television. Aeon Flux originally got its start as a series of animated short films on Liquid T.V. in 1992. It was a clever mix of dialogue-less wall-to-wall action and an intriguing science fiction premise that was popular enough to spawn a ten-episode series in 1995.

Chung has digitally remastered all of the episodes and they have never looked or sounded better. The colours are much more vibrant and the animation style more clearly defined with shadows fleshed out creating an even more cinematic vibe. What is so striking about Aeon Flux is that it refuses to appeal to the lowest common denominator. It features very intricately plotted and complex stories and sneaks in all sorts of fantastical creations (including spider-like robots and deadly genetically engineered assassins with four arms), suggestive sexual references and the level of violence that you wouldn't find on regular television. Along with The Maxx and The Head, Aeon Flux was adventurous programming for the alternative nation. It was produced at a time when alternative culture was making serious inroads into the mainstream and it is doubtful that we will see its likes again from MTV.

The first two discs feature several audio commentaries with creator Peter Chung and key creative crew members (including the voice of Aeon Flux herself, Denise Poirier). However, most of them are tedious as Chung is not the most eloquent or interesting speaker. He dominates most of the tracks so that everyone else has to fight to get a word in edge-wise.

There's been some confusion over if this dvd collection will contain all of the Aeon FLux episodes. I'm happy to say that the three dvds do in fact have the whole series. Here's a quick breakdown-

Aeon Flux ran 16 episodes in total:

-1 twelve minute pilot

-5 five minute shorts (Gravity, Night, Leisure, Tide, and War)

-10 thirty minute episodes (Utopia or Deutoronopia, Isthmus Crypticus, Thanatophobia, A Last Time For Everything, The Demiurge, Reraizure, Chronophasia, Ether Drift Theory, The Purge, End Sinister)

The first two discs in the collection contain all 10 thirty minute episodes. The third disc contains the pilot and the remaining 5 five minute episodes.

*NOTE- For some reason the short NIGHT was renamed MIRROR, but it is the exact same short as the original release.*

I hope this clears up all the confusion and makes Aeon fans very happy!

None so far have really commented on exactly what episodes are on which tapes, so here's a rundown on what's where. These do indeed have all televised material from season 1, 2 and 3.
Tape 1, "Aeon Flux" (also on DVD) has four episodes from season 3, each preceded by a short from season 2, and concluding with a combined collection of the original 6 Liquid TV shorts as one 12min episode. Long shows: Thanatophobia, a Last Time for Everything, the Purge, Isthmus Crypticus. Shorts: Gravity, Leisure, Tide, War, and the combined LTV shorts.
Tape 2 "Mission Infinite" has three long episodes: Reraizure, Chronophasia, End Sinister.
Tape 3 "Operative Terminus" has the remaining three long episodes, and one season 2 short at the end. Long: Utopia or Deutoronopia, the Demiurge, Etherdrift Theory. Short: Night.
Those recalling the original broadcasts may note that these tapes do not have the episodes in the same order as originally televised.... as to whether this makes a difference to the experience is, of course, a mater of opinion. Look for fan sites with complete episode guides to get the original order, then see what you think.

For those upset about the re-recorded dialogue, here's an explanation from Aeon Flux creator Peter Chung:

'There are places where we recorded new dialogue; I brought back the writers who worked on the original show and we wnet over the scripts and tweaked the dialogue again, and in some cases brought it back to what it originally was supposed to be because MTV had asked us to change it and the version that was on the air was actually something that did not reflect our original intentions anyway. So I know that people who consider themselves purists will say "why did you tamper with it? We want the original version." Well, the version that was on the show was not the original version, you know - that's the version that MTV tampered with. So what you're getting on the DVD is something that's closer to what [we originally intended].'

How many of us can remember watching short little 1 minutes clips about the leather clad spy shooting everything in site and then dying abruptly? Then came the FULL episode's on MTV. Yes! The first video in the collection, (aptly titled: Aeon Flux) is by far the best, showing the Liquid Television shorts, and the best full length episodes (Thantophobia, Isthmus Crypticus, etc.), I have watched that tapes at least 10 times. The other two tapes show Peter Chung's experiments with general weirdness. The combination of Heavy Metal/Japanime graphics and techo soundtrack give this fact paced cartoon a DEFINITE thumbs up from me. I recommend this highly... even if you're not a die hard fan, this is worth testing. :-)

Aeon Flux: The Complete Animated Collection [Blu-ray]?
It was announced afew years back for a November '09 release, but never materialized. Mere weeks before release date people started recieving order cancellation notices. Nothing has been said about it since then, and a reason was never given for the quiet cancellation.
