Look, no matter what, I think we can all agree that Lockjaw is a very good boy, right?

Unbridled Apathy: Saw it on IMAX with a free pass.  Ramsay Bolton was good, the rest "Meh". A sizable part of it takes place on Oahu and the geography realities held up, mostly. They did use a shot of the state capitol building for some buildings on the moon.
I thought the second episode better than the first.

Which means of your two leads, one can't talk (his only power), and the other loses her power.  Not really much of a cheese shop, is it?

BeerBear: huh? Karnak has time powers?


looks more like instant calculation. The first scenario didn't actually happen.. he played it out in his head instantly

Okay... so my initial impressions:

* Medusa is miscast. She's just... not right.
* Medusa's hair is cheap-looking. Bad color. Bad quality.
* Medusa's dress is terrible. Just plain ugly. She deserves better.
* So... is Crystal's only power the ability to talk to Lockjaw?
* Karnak's haircut is distracting. Why not bald?
* Crystal's hair is badly done, too.
* Black Bolt looks about right, and fits with MCU ideals... So far.
* Triton looked decent, too.
* The whole show is kind of slow, though... Drags a bit with the soap opera style they've gone for.
* Still better than Pseudo Trek: Discovery. At least in this I don't hate the leads.

smd31: Sooo...children of Inhumans aren't Inhumans themselves...


They are Inhumans. It's genetic. It's just that the effects/powers do not show themselves unless they've gone through terrigenesis. All Inhumans have a common ancestry (alien) but they appear as human until exposed to terrigen mist. If a human without the Inhuman ancestry is exposed to the mist, it kills them (in the MCU).

In the Marvel comics universe, the mist only kills mutants.

 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.

The Bestest: TuteTibiImperes: I'll be interested in seeing where this goes, hopefully they give it a shot to develop and don't can it early because of some bad initial press.

They wouldn't because of press, but if the ratings tank, they'll pull it in a heartbeat. Giving it a Friday Death Slot isn't promising, though. Inhumans' connection to the greater MCU is far more tenuous than AoS, which means Disney won't even justify keeping it as "free" marketing for the movies.


ABC's already promoting this as 'The Complete Series'. Not Season 1; Complete. They started doing this after the IMAX premier fell flat on it's face.

Also, between this and the failure of Iron Fist, I think Scott Buck's career as a Hollywood showrunner has come to an end.

BeerBear: Those surfers sure are lay back knowing Gorgon not human


That's the typical scene where the Inhuman sees that not all humans are evil and humans see that not all Inhumans are bad.

I'm guessing he just 'sees the future' and chooses the best path in a situation...

So not really time powers as far as doing x and then rewinding like in the Doctor Strange movie.

I read this too. So whatever minuscule CGI budget went into Lockjaw? That's it? If I just want to see Hawaii locations, I'll just watch that CBS show where they cut the Asian folks out of their CGI budget.

Alphax: fusillade762: Nefarious: 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.

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.


oh, that will link well with the end scene of AoS

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.

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.

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

The Bestest: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Disappointing but maybe it'll get better. I'll watch it right after Crazy XGF and wait for AoS.

Well, reviews are not kind. 4% critic score and 53% audience score on rotten tomatoes.


Well... I mean, I see what they were trying  for, but I also see that they had a budget of about $38.00 to make this show. It looks like a high school play in terms of quality, and that's hurting it a lot. I think the entire budget was spent to draw Lockjaw.

If they'd had a bigger budget and gone the way of the movies (their original course) it might have been something interesting... But as it stands, it has a long way to go to be anything but a step below Iron Fist.

I'll still watch it, but I'll treat it like a supplemental, cheaply-told story for Agents of SHIELD.

As noted in the threads where we discussed the trailer(s) for this show...

Black Bolt and Medusa seem to be miscast...especially BB.  Too much constipated/frowny face as the only expression.

I've heard it has some interesting ideas but is severely handicapped by the effects budget.

I'm taping it. But my expectations are low. Like outer core low.
