What was everyone's first time?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

with Aeon that is? The first ep I ever saw was the demiurge. I didn't see any of the shorts until I got the DVD and movies. And

For me, it started with the marathons in `98. I caught an episode or two when it first ran, but didn't really "get it"...

I saw the serialisation of 'night' on liquid television when it was on bbc 2 back in 1989. it haunted me for years until i spotted volume one of the videos in the stockroom of a retail store I worked in. its taken me another three years to get ahold of volumes two and three but I found them a month ago and Im now a happy and contented Fluxite...

I was 12, flipping through channels once when my parents weren't home, and I came across Aeon in the first serialized story on LTV. Something in the imagery instantly had me locked, and I've been hooked ever since. That must have been 1991.

Summer of 93. A friend of mine had just mysteriously disappeared and it turned out he committed suicide. It drew his best friend and I together, (he happened to be tall and thin with short blond hair). We watched Aeon Flux together. I thought he was attractive but I must admit I watched Aeon reluctantly; she had only enough 'imagery' on to attract my friend and Mat Rebholz. Sigh.

-- Barb e. (Suesuebeo9@cs.com), July 14, 2001.

I stayed up late one night when i was 10 and saw it on Liquid Television in 1991. I've been hooked on both shows ever since.

Barb, I'm a homosexual. :)

-- Mat Rebholz (matrebholz@yahoo.com), July 15, 2001.

Well, then maybe you and my friend would've gotten along better than we did...anyway it was Aeon who won me over.

-- Barb e. (Suesuebeo9@cs.com), July 16, 2001.

I watched the clavius episode first I swore that I haden't seen this show before. So complicated there must have been an entire season of shows leading up to this one. Later I found out, they are disjointed. I still blows me away how off I was at first impressions

The 1998 Marathon. I was home from College to take care of my mother who'd just broken her ankle. I'd read a blurb about Aeon in TV guide back in 92 and had always wanted to see it.

-- Joey V. (popejoan_19@yahoo.com), August 13, 2001.

I guess the first time for me was on good ole Liquid TV back in 90 or 91. I didn't get to start at the beginning, tho, it was the segment where the Breen soldiers are piled up and Trevor is shown sticking the bug back in his finger. I also dug Invisible Hands, anybody remember that?

-- Duane (Hillbillyboy70@aol.com), September 17, 2001.

I love this question... It was a marathon in '98, I had just come back to the dorm after a twelve-hour session in the architecture studio, and I turned on the TV right in the middle of U. or D. Even though I was drop dead tired, I watched the entire third season straight through and spent the next month doodling Breen buildings on every piece of scratch paper...

-- Charlie Princeton (bebop432@hotmail.com), September 26, 2001.

I first saw "season one" whenever it first aired on Liquid Television. Probably not the very first night or anything, but in its first run, anyway. It was broken up, of course, and I kept seeing the same part over and over again, the part with the two Breens lying there together dying in all that blood. I thought Aeon (the show) was French for years. I dunno. It just seemed very French to me.

I saw a couple of the other shorts ("Night" and Tide," I remember well) some time, but I've no idea when.

I came across the first Aeon video in a retail store in early 1998. I was aware that there either were or had been some talkies, but I hadn't seen any of them. I actually bought it because the guy who was with me was really into that Trinity RPG which had to change its name because of AF, so he wanted to see if there were any similarities. (From what I understand, there weren't, but I don't know anything about Trinity, so . . .) I was hooked pretty quickly.

I bought the second tape the next day. I ordered the Herodotus File from Amazon the day after that. Which reminds me, I remember seeing the Herodotus File in a couple of mall bookstores, but I don't remember where or when.

-- Dr. Razzmatazz (boogiebaby37@yahoo.com), September 26, 2001.

Well, I'm 18 now, so.... I was around 8 or 9 when I first saw the second season. I'm still not sure exactly why it captivated me, but I remembered it forever after. My head almost exploded when I saw the first third season commercial. I had just about convinced myself that I had imagined or dreamed the whole thing. Really, I can't overstate the effect Aeon had on my young imagination. It is for me what Star Wars is to children of the 70's.

-- Frostbite (krooks@agnesscott.edu), September 26, 2001.

Anyone know where I can find storylines and / or images from Invisble Hands? Haven't seen it since the original run, but it's stayed in my mind. I'd love to find it on video somewhere, but that doesn't seem likely. Thanks.

-- Stuart Gardner (stuartgardner@adelphia.net), February 14, 2004.

I'd have to say it was way back when they started, 91 or so. I was really excited about the Maxx too. And it's great, but it's not Aeon. She's timeless.

The first time I say Aeon, I also saw thie short by a bunch of MIT students.

A kid gets a cereal box w/ a superhero's ring inside and when an Alien crash lands in his city, he changes into the superhero, (using his new ring), to fight it.

Anyone remember that one?

-- Ashley Fox (ash@t256.com), February 14, 2004.

Yeah, I remember that, it's called Grinning Evil Death. It's on the second Liquid Television compilation tape.

-- Ashly Kehl (stefburk@metrocast.net), February 14, 2004.

My first time . . . I had owned this novelty mail-order catalogue for 3 years that had the first tape in it and the description piqued my interest, but it wasn't til I was like 12 when I actually went down to the video store and rented it. I put it on the VCR in my room and sat down with a bowl of friut loops and watched it. And it totally kicked my ass. I've been renting and re-renting the first tape off and on for the past four years.

-- Ashly Kehl (stefburk@metrocast.net), February 14, 2004.

my first time, was watching a few shorts. i saw leisure and tide. the endings to both really freaked me out. i was about 12. i saw pilot after being a fan for awhile. leisure would always come back to me like a nightmare.
