X-men Evolution is going to premiere at 10:30 PM EST time on cartoon network May 5th, which is 3 days after the release of x2. CN looks like they are going to start with the second season then show all the currently aired episodes from the third, then air season 1. Personally it took a while for X-men Evolution to grow on me, but its actually a good show. I think it got much better in season 2 and 3, I think especially due to Curt Geda's presence on the show. Now that the series has established the human/mutant conflict things have picked up a bit, and they are building up to a big battle with Apocalypse.
9 more episodes were ordered for the show's 4th and probably final season which I guess will air on WB. I think WB is holding the last 4 episodes of the third season to coincide with the release of x2 in several weeks.
Oh, everyone should check out the episode on May 6th, its the episode with Captain America and Wolverine flashback to liberating concentration camps in Poland. Great episode.

Evolution was a SWANK show. Excellent, and only exceeded by the supercool X-Men & Spider-Man cartoons from the early 90s.
Though I liked (nay, LOVED) the X-Men show from about 10 years ago, I started watching it again when FOX re-aired it to hype the X-Men movie, and it didn't stand the test of that short amount of time. The animation was pretty sub-par for the day, and the voice acting was real bad. I actually think I like Evolution better.
Now here's something real weird: The last episode of the 1992 X-Men series I saw was a flashback tale featuring Wolverine and Captain America. The last episode of Evolution I saw was the Wolverine/Captain America episode The Vile1 mentioned. Spooky, ain't it?
Personally, I think it has kind of a horse/pig feel to it. The head and mane of a horse, with the stout body of a pig. Calls to mind Episode 814 of MST3K. "Winged bears!? The end times are upon us!" -Crow T. Robot
