Storyline

Æon Flux is a mysterious and amoral secret agent from the country of Monica. Her motives or background are left unexplained, as are those of her antagonist/love, Trevor Goodchild. On her missions, she deals swift, bloody "justice" to all that oppose her. The second season episodes of this series were unique in that Aeon died at the end of every single episode.

Quotes

[first lines]
Trevor Goodchild: The unobserved state is a fog of probabilities, a window of and for error. The watcher observes, the fog collapses, an event resolves. A theory becomes a fact... What is the truth? Tell me, if you know. And I will not believe you. Things are never what they seem. Clean gloves hide dirty hands - and mine are dirtier than most... Without truth, there can be no justice. Justice will be done!

A Twist On A Reality Not Often Seen....
15 December 2002 | by DredgeSee all my reviews

It's a futuristic "White Rabbit" that comes to mind whenever I recall any episode of this "Liquid TV" born legend. The style wasn't bubbly or cute like 75% of the Anime you witness, it's lines were crude, bodies were awkward but it's feel was seductive.

I personally feel that the creators wanted to give the audience a constant view into the side of what we don't see all that often. Such movies as "Total Recall" and "Blade Runner" danced just outside of those unseen elements using them as sight-gags, AF exploited them in an incredible way....if you didn't understand what you were watching, it was only a matter of a partial storyline before you understood it.

When it was originally created, Aeon herself was silent, an occassional moan, groan or sigh - the TV series added new elements giving that much needed dialog and shedding evil light onto an already unimaginable world.

The action is intense, the storylines are fluid and entrancing, the voice acting is top-notch and it's lifespan was cut short to make way for the new generation clot with teenie-boppers, hip-hoppers and wannabes. If AF proved anything, aside from it's jaded stance on a futuristic world that puts "Mad Max" to shame - it's that MTV DID INDEED SELL-OUT....for those of us who spent countless hours trying to get the station to even rekindle just ONE MARATHON of "Liquid TV", know the heartache.
