Re: The Gifted - Fox Monday

Marvel's X-Men universe finally makes it to TV. I'm really looking forward to this one.

Re: The Gifted - Fox Monday

This kept me interested as a pilot, however there was nothing really original in this "people-with-special-powers-on-the-run-from-government-agency" series. It's been done to death. It reminds me of Colony with an underground fighting against a corrupt, fascist agency of the government.

I always enjoy Amy Acker no matter what she's in so it was good seeing her in this. The daughter reminds me of Claire Bennet in Heroes ( I'm waiting for her to fall off a tall building and walk away), but regeneration is not one of her powers. I hope her brother's acting improves because to be honest, he was annoying. I might check out Legion as a comparison since it's basically in the same universe but I'll give this show a few more episodes to see if it's more than just one chase scene after another.

Re: The Gifted - Fox Monday

I was curious how this was going to be presented. I see you mentioned there wasn't any differences between it and the usual fare. Sorry to hear that.

I thought you'd like seeing Root (Amy Acker) again. Is she anymore than the stricken "mother"?

Then we've got Stephen Moyer, from True Blood fame. I like him as an actor, but I can't forgive him for marrying Anna Paquin.

Think I'll still give it a looksee anyway. Maybe there's something there.

Oh Mr. Bill, you were right. This is bad.


ETA: Oh, forgot to mention...Am I the only one who thinks Lauren, the daughter, looks like "The Cheerleader" (Hayden Peneterrier (spl)) from the series Heroes?

Yeah, I mentioned it up thread that they are similar. Lauren hasn't mangled her hand in a garbage disposal yet, but I don't think regeneration is one of her powers. That cheerleader in Heroes (Claire Bennet) was such a klutz.
