Lucifer
Season 3, Episode 1
October 2, 2017
They're Back, Aren't They?
After Lucifer wakes up in the middle of the desert with his wings back, he recruits the help of Chloe to help figure out what happened to him and why. They come across a crime scene that could be tied to Lucifer's kidnapping. When the Lancaster Police Department get involved, newcomer Lt. Marcus Pierce fails to make a great impression. The investigation goes awry when Lucifer finds himself in another compromising situation.

The Gifted
Season 1, Episode 1
October 2, 2017
eXposed
Series premiere. A suburban couple's lives are rocked by the discovery that their children possess mutant powers, forcing the family to go on the lam from a hostile government and seek help from an underground network of mutants.

Next week the CW superhero lineup returns... I figured it couldn't hurt to list Lucifer which is perfectly fine but which I wouldn't normally watch live.

The Gifted is an X-Men tv series, and though Brian Singer directs this first episode, the review on Variety isn't very promising.

I watch and like Lucifer, but it was a bit disconcerting to see ads for it all over the page where I read about the Vegas shooting this morning.

I like this show, but I rarely watch it live. Make a good thread so I can read it after I finish watching it tomorrow night or whenever.

Thanks!

This show has gotten 3 seasons? The Pilot was so gawdawfull I couldn't make it even half way through
I can see how this show improved since then, I mean it was so awful it couldn't have gotten any worse
But improved enough to not just get renewed once, but twice? What's the story?

That's a hell of a low bar... IMAX paid for the first two episodes... but it looks like they took that money and tried to produce all 8.

Second. I love it. Ella was a great addition to the cast and they've actually made me like Detective Douche.

One thing I like is that Lucifer can say things about god and angels and stuff in a very literal sense and the people he's talking to take it in a figurative sense. And it makes sense.

Keeping Chloe in the dark is getting old, though. I hope she learns the truth this season.

If Dad wants him to have wings, cutting them off all the time is going to get tedious.

That Inhumans show was totes the soiled underpants.

Not one likeable character - except maybe from that John Carter large dog rip-off. When you have a king who can't speak being a coont stealing clothes, beating up security guards and cops, and does it without shame or remorse, you have a badly written tv show.

Going to try and give The Gifted a chance.
 
2017-10-02 09:07:07 PM  
Or, maybe it was God who keeps giving him back his wings, and the Devil is at work here.

Well the season before last of Supernatural,  God's equal was his sister Amara. The whole light dark yin yang thing and Lucifer wasn't a match,  but God and sis went on a vacation and left Lucifer to his own ends.

 Is this supposed to take place in the same universe as Charles Xavier's School for the Gifted?

He wakes up...
...alone...
...in the middle of nowhere...
...horrifically dehydrated...
...with his wings back...

...and he fixes the cable.

2017-10-02 09:50:36 PM  
Be cool if they got some of the original cast members to make bit non speaking cameos,  in totally irrelevant roles.

So maybe I'll give this a chance. Plus it has Any Acker and maybe she'll mutate into Illyria.

But reading my post I can see that the sarcasm didn't come through. I think Inhumans, so far, is the worst of the comic tv shows. I don't know if I'll bother watching it.

Same here but The Gifted actually seemed be decent. Fox sometimes does manage a good series now & then and this might be one of them. At least it is worth watching for a few episodes to see how it develops.

I only just now got around to watching Inhumans, it is truly awful. I'll probably keep watching it for a little bit though because Agents of SHIELD wasn't that great at the beginning and turned good.

isamudyson: Is it me or does the daughter on this show look like Chloe Grace Moretz?

yes, but her face is more vacuous than it is like chloe's "who farted?"
And agree with most folks here. inhumans was... a giant pile of dog crap (bad lockjaw, bad) compared to what AoS has been recently. Gifted actually looks decent.

Some of them use to be X-affiliates in the comics. Thunderbird, Polaris and Blink are in the show, so not all new characters and since this is after the mutant registry, but before Days of Future Past, who knows who else we might see in the show.

No worries. Though I assumed his Devil face just didn't work because it was Chloe, not because it had been "taken away". Now he just needs to show her the damn wings.
 
2017-10-03 04:11:56 PM  
Watched both earlier today. Did it seem like they made Garcia more...spacey? I don't remember her being that all over the place.

The Gifted was what Inhumans and some of the X-Men movies should have been. So far, it didn't have any "really..." moments or that was just a dumb thing to do. It also looked like aside from Lockjaw, they got the SFX budget Inhumans should have had. I did give a chuckle at the ringtone and a "ha, nice" at the cameo.
 
2017-10-03 08:08:24 PM  
I was going to type out a response as I just finished watching The Gifted a few minutes ago but this sums up everything pretty nicely....

Heheh, I just finished The Gifted myself and I'd give it a 6.5-7 for the first episode.  Inhumans gets a 1.5 for the dog.

Then again I'll give anything Amy Acker and Toks Olagundoye are in watch or 10 because damn.
