New show I saw on Hulu tonight when looking for something to fall asleep to.
Directed by Joss Whedon (written???)
Looks exactly like it was story boarded from a comic book, then very very slightly animated in a Waking Life/Scanner Darkly style. Or a Broken Saints style flash animation project if anyone is familiar with that project. I guess this style is called rotoscoping as per wikipedia nomenclature.
The only thing I really know about Xmen story line is what came up in the movies, and what I somehow inherently knew about the story line before the movies came out and without ever reading a comic or ever watching the previous animated stories.
SO DON'T SPOIL IT IN THIS THREAD, ASSHOLES.
On the pro side:
Animation looks amazing, dark, adult, and amazing
Looks like nothing I've ever seedn before on TV
Good voice acting
Mucho fan service?
Biggest one first, Hulu says: "The next episode of this series will be available December 2009"
13min long episodes
Mucho fan service!
Probably other stuff if you are an Xman aficionado, which I am not thus can't comment on how far it strays from the storyline, how it preserves the characters, etc.
If I was a betting man, which I am, I would put money on this show appearing weekly on your TV. But I don't know which day, time, or channel it appears on. So I will assume it appears once a week on Hulu every Thursday or so.
