    Hi. was recently recommended this by a friend and i wondered what you thought of it. i have only seen the first episode so far and enjoyed it's avante garde/ new(ish) style,looks, and the way that the plot was emphasised without words. my friend recommended i keep watching as it only keeps getting better and i would like your opinions. thank you all. :)

    Wonderfully weird

    I first saw it on Channel four many many years ago and wanted the whole collection every since. Finally stumbled on it and enjoyed every moment. As long as you remember that Aeon Flux dies in every episode.

    This is a wonderfully weird sequence that stretches your imagination that little bit beyond the edge with its surreal black humour.


    :)

    thank's. have only seen bits of it myself but, as you said, the surreal avant garde style was gripping. i know of a few places where i could buy this series and will keep a watchful eye out for a copy at a reasonable price.

    Amazon?


    I think I got my copy from Amazon, a good price I remember at the time, and it might have come down further.

    while away from town last saturday I managed to find the series for a reasonable price and watched the whole thing over the last few days. it was a brilliant viewing experience and had intriguing plots with great twists and a good realtionship between Aeon and trevor. the animation was fantastic.

    Thanks! It was one of the few things I've seen recently that really struck me as a great peice of fiction.
