Mutant X, go home!, 3 January 2006
Author: dafalias

I remember to really have enjoyed this show as a kid. It had nice 80ies-TV-Action,suspense and characters you could relate to in contrast to Mutant X, that had only pretty people. Courteney Cox's intense performance was especially memorable. Her character Gloria was probably the most powerful of all the mutants, yet always sad. And man, was she beautiful! She was the main reason why I started watching Friends - resulting in owning 10 Seasons of DVDs ... I can't understand why they don't bring it out on DVD though - so much crap is released on DVD, but good shows like Misfits aren't. So, people, please, please release Misfits on DVD. I'll buy. I promise.
