 WTF did I just watch?
    Right from the opening scene this thing started to smell bad for me.

  Game of Mutants crossed off the viewing list after opening episode, here's hoping The Gifted is more up my alley.

WilderKWight: If a human without the Inhuman ancestry is exposed to the mist, it kills them (in the MCU).


Only deadly with the crystals grown post Inhuman exodus on Earth.  This was due to metal from the Diviner storage device being infused in the crystals, that metal was deadly to humans.

As for the show it could be worse... it's hard but it could be.  It's 8 episodes and Disney will probably require the full run.

At the end Lockjaw will devour Maximus

RoyFokker'sGhost: ABC's already promoting this as 'The Complete Series'. Not Season 1; Complete.


It was always promoted as an 8 episode series.  Now if somehow they made a hit a second series would probably occur but that's not happening.

Some thoughts on the show from someone who's never read an Inhumans story:

* Is Black Bolt the dumbest person on the show? I understand not being familiar with Earth, but wouldn't you get out of the way of moving vehicles instead of standing in the road like an idiot? And he goes into a shop to get a suit so he doesn't call attention to himself, then walks out with the suit and attacks anyone who comes after him, therefore calling attention to himself. All of his actions seemed like someone who'd been born yesterday. He doesn't talk; that doesn't mean he doesn't think.
* I like how Medusa has a full head of prehensile hair yet can only attack one person at a time instead of everyone at once. I guess that's the limit of the CGI budget.
* I couldn't understand some of the Inhumans' powers. Karnak I understand thanks to people like the posters above, but what does Crystal do?
* Maximus is the most uncharismatic leader of a coup that I've ever seen.
* I like that they lampshaded Gorgon standing around and doing nothing, instead of trying to find the other Inhumans (assuming he knew they were on Earth with him).
* Are cops supposed to slowly follow a suspect walking down the street, instead of catching up to him? Or were they waiting for the other cops to pull in front of Black Bolt in order to surround him?

smd31: Because her hair won't grow back? -_-


Have you seen how long it is? It would probably take a couple of years to grow back.

Besides, I assume an Inhuman's powers are everything to them (look at how they treat people whose powers don't emerge). I would guess taking them away, even temporarily, is like taking away their identity.

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr: * I couldn't understand some of the Inhumans' powers. Karnak I understand thanks to people like the posters above, but what does Crystal do?


Four element (fire, water, air, earth) manipulation, though all the showed of it in the premiere was her idly frosting over a ball and tossing a small fireball at whatserface.

This one's for Serinda Swan:

"Clowns" by Goldfrapp

Only clowns would play with those balloons
What d'ya wanna look like Barbie for
Dear oh Lord, it's easy

Roasting, roasting, roasting deed
Mahogany
Titties that live on and on and on and on

Only clowns would play with those balloons
What d'ya wanna look like Barbie for
Dear oh Lord, it's easy

Only clowns would play with those balloons
Passive when I'm in record
Day and night I'm watching you


/Her acting is terrible and so was this whole thing.

Don't forget that in the show, she seems to have the power to command Lockjaw. Whenever they want to use him to transport, he has to get explicit instructions from Crystal and he ignores anyone else.

Wow. It didn't look like Gorgon knew how to walk with his hooves. I've seen toddlers wearing mommy's heels move with more grace.

That was... not good.

Also, am I supposed to be rooting for Ramsay Bolton trying to free the lower castes or the royal family? I mean, they seem to have a policy of, "No cool power? To the mines with you!". So in addition to bad everything else, the "bad guy" is more identifiable.

2/10, I liked the dog.

I don't see how this progresses in any significant way that *doesn't* get SHIELD's attention. I mean, this shiat is what they DO.

Going with how the last AoS episode ended.. the organization may be on the government's shiat list again, and the people we know and love don't seem to be on Earth anymore.

Sounds like the same issue people had with "Star Trek: Insurrection".
