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.

Re: The Gifted - Fox Monday

I enjoyed this last one. A lot of action and some really good drama with Reed's weighing the decision between seeing his family or condemning innocent people to concentration camps.

Kate and the kids took off to seek help to clear Reed. They went to her brother's house and received a very cold welcome. (Who needs enemies when you've got a brother like that.) Kate's brother started out being a real a-hole, but he finally saw how even bigger a-holes his neighbors were and reluctantly decided to help them. It doesn't look like Kate and the kids can get help outside of the mutant underground, which means they can never go back to their old lives. The young brother needs to get a lid on his emotions, geez, compensating for being a bullying victim is getting old.

To me, Kate is headed toward taking things into her own hands and I believe before long she'll reach full blown "Root" (from POI). Looking forward to that. She's no mutant, but what a mutant name, "Root". That would be cool if she gets that code name.

This is why I'm still watching. I'm finding this a little weak, but I just can't imagine Acker signed up to play "cliche plucky mom". I also liked the inhuman dude who starred in Incorporated. It's a big cast and everyone feels one-dimensional but hopefully they start rounding out a little. And Root will start kicking butt and taking names
