This week’s failed pilot TL;DR:
Painfully 90s teen X-Men come together to fight Jim Carrey’s version of Freddy Krueger (played by Matt Frewer).
It was 1996, and Marvel wanted to do a live-action X-Men TV series.
But these weren’t your granddad’s X-Men! Heck no! These were hip, young X-Men that no one’s ever heard of or cares about, with amazing new powers like sexual harassment, kinda ripping off Cyclops and being quite muscular for a girl!
When these kids go up against a dream invading pedophile (it doesn’t come up much, but it’s in there) it’s thrill-a-minute stuff packed with high impact diatribes about new age meditation techniques and electrifying casual misogyny!
