When they did not want to believe it was official.

    Yes, starting with why the obvious omission of one Everett Thomas, an O.G. member.

    Also, neither Buff or Refrax were as interesting as Husk and Chamber. Not that all the cast wasn't flat but them especially since they didn't even have Canon interest to fall back on.

    Husk and Chamber are very complex mutants, and the budget did not support that.

    Buuuuudget...the expense in displaying the mutants powers was prob through the roof.....so im guessing the higher ups didnt think spending all tha money to display the same powerset of other chars....if youre gonna spend a fortune showing off mutant powers youd want them to be something the audience hasnt seen before

    True but I think CGI was a bigger damper than the acting +I think creatively CGI hindered the whole production and wasn't even worth it a lot of shows were like that at least back then Like why couldnt they go the AoA route with chamber? having his full face and his power coming out of something in his chest? or have him be covered up? and Husk all they needed to do was some quick camera angles...that 'Husk'ing sound...some strips of her skin on the floor, and body paint and Boom! Husk and Chamber are in

    CGI sucked in the mid-Nineties. Despite its low budget (4 million dollars), "Generation X" had entertaining special effects and a good production.
    Chamber would have been difficult to achieve at the time. Other than that, I loved Refrax, he was a nice cross between Cyclops and Billy Idol.

    Lol, wait a minute how you gonna drop these easy fixes for these characters? They could have went with a quick halo lighting effect around Synch's body every now and then and there we go!

    Yes, but Synch replicates anyone else's powers. That would not be interesting, given the fact that Generation X was the only bunch of mutants depicted by the TV movie.

    It was good.

    I loved Refrax!
    I've never spoken to one person (other than you) who said that movie was inventive or good. The acting, writing and special effects were all low budget (despite their low budget).

    Oh I recorded it and was anxiously waiting for its premiere and then.....recorded over it. Too each their own. Like I said I am a huge Gen X fan. I just wish every copy of this movie could be burned in a giant bonfire like it was the book War of the Worlds.
