Swamp Thing: The Series Seasons 1 & 2 (1990)
Movie Review by The Gravedigger

Swamp Thing: The Series Seasons 1 & 2 (1990) First season focuses on Tressa Kipp and her ten year old son and of course, SWAMP THING, who lives in the swamp nearby. Dr. Arcane, with a sinister British accent, does his experiments from a cave in the swamp, creating various sorts of mutants for purposes that are only his own. The biggest problem is that this first season is too kid friendly and Swamp Thing is too much in the background.

Second season does away with Tressa's son, has a few new characters. They are Will Kipp (her brother?) and Abigail (Kari Wuhrer). In the comic she is Arcane's neice, here she is a clone created by Dr. Woodrue. In one episode Will comments on her barcode tattoo, calling it a birthmark, she says "No, it's a tattoo, and asks if he wants one like it. Fifteen minutes later she says a young baby has the exact same birthmark that she had (the barcode). Sloppy writing.

Arcane has emerged from the swamp and works out of a warehouse and does experiments such as creating forcefields, more technological than biological inventions. In one episode he makes a duplicate of Swamp Thing and in another the two swap bodies. He also creates human looking robots and an Iris that produces a defoliant. !! Almost every episode of the second season ends with the same shot, of Swampy walking into the water, sort of like Kharis from the old Universal Mummy movies.

The Swamp Thing costume is much improved in the second season and although Kari Wuhrer is sort of endearing as Abigail, she's so different from the comic book origins that I wondered why they even bothered to introduce her character.

Overall, if you're a Swamp Thing fan and missed this series from the early 90's you should just go on missing it.
