Summary: Here is all of Æon Flux, and I mean everything this set has all the shorts and episodes that tell the story of the futuristic assassin of personal gain. There's not much wrong with this box set for fans of the show, its digitally re-mastered, with audio commentaries and of course short features that give us a more leisurely background on how the character came to be. The set also contains other sketched from liquid Television, the show which Æon Flux is a spin off of.
So what can I say, if you in to Æon Flux this is everything you could hope for, but if you've seen two or three episodes of MTV and are expecting to find out how the story began don't hold your breath as anyone who's seen the series knows that none of the episodes hold a continuing narrative, by which I mean each episode starts at the end of one of Æon Flux's many missions and the information that lead up to those events is rarely if even disclosed, and the origins of nearly ever event of character in the series if left up to viewer interpretations.
This both makes it needlessly confusing but also allows you to watch over and over again and come back with a new view on the situation that you did before.
Personally I prefer the 2minute shorts to the full length episodes but like Is aid before everything is here so you don't have to worry about collecting a million DVDs to get the full story, just don't be to disappointed when you reach the end and still have no clue what just happened. The meaning is what you make of it.

Please note: the real box art doesn't have an opake pink eye, the regualare eye filles that space.
