Storyline

Drs. Hayes and Lincoln are researchers in biological oddities for the Humanidyne company. When they find a man still alive after being frozen for 50 years, their greedy boss fires them and takes the Iceman to use for military experiments. Left without jobs, Hayes and Lincoln decide to get a group of "freaks" (including a telekinetic 17-year-old and a rock guitarist who shoots lightning from his hands) together to rescue the Iceman and stop their boss' reckless experiments.

Strange, odd, and oddly addictive....but flawed.
24 October 2000 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

In the '80s, I suppose it was hip to have a group of superheroes that had problems. And it worked for the X-Men to a great extent. The only problem I have with this show is the fact that the 'leader's' (the guy with no powers except his enthusiasm) dorky attitude about how they should all help the humanity that shunned them. Okay, that's good on paper, but why? Why oh Why?? Perhaps if the show went a little deeper into that conflict the show might have lasted a bit longer. But, to be honest, this kind of oddity plays good on a TV exec's conscience for four episodes before it gets tiresome.

But it has it's moments. A bit dated and some of the fashions cause me to gag, but it is with watching sometime when you feel nostagic.
