Episode Title: Night of The Sentinels. Parts 1 and 2
Original Airdate: 10-31-92
Hello everyone and welcome back to my coverage of X-Men: The Animated Series. Night of The Sentinels would be the show’s pilot episode and for a kids show. It does manage to have some pretty heavy subject material in the first few shows With concepts ranging from concentration camps in the holocaust to sacrificing your own life to save a friend. This first one does reference stories from previous issues of the comic. Such as the creation of The Sentinels(Uncanny X-Men #14) and the mutant registration act(Uncanny X-Men #181). The look and design of the characters themselves are almost identical to the ones artist Jim Lee drew in the 90’s. Let’s cue up that awesome theme song and start discussing this first entry.
