The trouble with reviewing a collection like this is that often the second disc doesn’t bring much new to the table to talk about. Still, there were some surprises, I don’t ever remember Jean and Scott almost getting married, or how fucking creepy Mr. Sinister looks. Hell, while I know /co/ brings it up from time to time, I don’t ever remember Morph (who’s quite different than the one I know and love in Exiles) even being in the show. The second Master Mold episode was familiar though, one of the maybe half-dozen I saw as a kid, but by far the most memorable. Most of the comments from the first disc still apply, particularly that it was a reasonably enjoyable watch all told. Unfortunately, the disc comes to a stop 3 episodes into the second season, leaving me hanging. Fortunately it didn’t split a two-parter across volumes, but still rather annoying. I doubt I’ll be going out to pick up the second volume right away, but it has certainly caused itself to jump a little higher in my priorities. Perhaps when we’re a bit closer to the next volume’s release I’ll look at grabbing it, there are 70-odd episodes to work with, after all.
