The popular sci-fi television series MUTANT X stars John Shea as scientist Adam Kane, the leader of a group of humans who have acquired amazing and deadly powers after being used as unwitting guinea pigs for a corporation's secret genetic experiment. As part of Adam's Mutant X team, the animalistic Shalimar (Victoria Pratt), shapeshifting Jesse (Forbes March), telepathic Emma (Lauren Lee Smith), and electrically-charged Brennan (Victor Webster) dedicate themselves to using their powers for secret crime-fighting missions while trying to stop the experiment's mastermind--and Adam's former partner--Mason Eckhart (Tom McCamus) from using the project for nefarious ends. This collection includes every episode from the series' debut season.

The disks arrived rattling around inside the case. The packaging for season 1 and season 3 of Mutant X are the same and I’ve never seen
a design like it. There are small plastic arms that hold the bottom of the DVDs in place, they move up and down to snap on the edge of the disk.
Those arms also scratch the disks that rest on top of them, and the disk that it’s designed to hold in place. They don’t work as intended.
The disks were also warped by the notches of plastic that come out of the top edge of the circle, that pinch in and hold the disk in place.
The top title sticker and bottom layer with the DVD information on it, were peeling/bubbling away from the plastic disk.
The packaging for these disks is basically destroying the product. The disks, overall, were not working. Amazon was great about refunding after returning them though.
I have tried ordering them again and I haven’t had a chance to watch it. Again, they were rattling around in the case when they arrived and this new order has a pebble or something stuck on the playing surface of a couple of the disks. The new order is from a different company…it’s just a shame the packaging is so complicated and destructive to the disks themselves. It's not anything a seller can do anything about, it's just annoying as all get out. I don’t know who designed them or why they were chosen instead of the simple snap in by the center hole idea that keeps them in place - which is how Season 2 is packaged. No idea why Season 2 is done in the usual packaging that protects the disk.
The well-built stars of the show engage in extremely athletic martial arts fisticuffs in a seemingly invincible fashion. Their double helix and other toys are the stuff of science fiction. Their computer skills are still cutting edge a decade and a half later. The show is one part contact sports, one part soap opera, one part high tech. The ensemble cast seem to enjoy working with each other. The show lasted only three seasons.
