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


I thought it was supposed to be a time where, for some reason, they don't know whether the X-Men still exist.

kid has telekinesis powers?

Ah.

Seems to be a lot of mutants with telekinetic powers.

Supposedly something happened to the X-Men and the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. Maybe Xarvier started having seizures like on Logan and killed everyone?

freakingmoron: lindalouwho: jimmyjackfunk: lindalouwho: rynthetyn: So who is more sinister than the devil?

A real twist would be God.

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.

Where does God go for vacation?

He plays skee-ball.

BTW you didn't miss Lucifer cutting his wings off, they didn't show it.


Oh thanks. But I missed it being implied. I left the room after the shrink refused to do it.

At Wikipedia it simply states it is "set in an alternate timeline where the X-Men have disappeared."

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

yep she does
 
2017-10-02 09:33:33 PM  
 Well I was going to say with all the tech to detect and locate mutants surely they have tech to trace cell signals,  but asking where they are at saves time I guess.

"It gets better." So I guess Bryan Singer hasn't gotten any more subtle since X-2.

 Who didn't see that coming?

/put on a welding mask dude

Is this reboot of Bladerunner worth a ticket or wait for DVD?
 
2017-10-02 09:45:30 PM  
And there's the Stan Lee cameo
 
2017-10-02 09:45:51 PM  
Cameo
 
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.

/like a crowd scene at say some event,  guy in a wheelchair says "hey buddy could you move so I can see" man blocking in front is revealed to be Patrick Stewart

DId anyone else watch People of Earth? I had no idea last week's show was the season finale.

So what's the verdict on The Gifted?
 
2017-10-02 10:08:14 PM  
Well, that was fun but it was no Inhumans.

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

I like it, better then the Inhumans

It was implied later when his brother found the bloody wings on the floor.

Me too. I'm going to watch it again.

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.
 
2017-10-02 10:21:37 PM  
Thanks folks.

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.

BullBearMS: BeerBear: he cut off his wings again??

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


But think of all the money he could make selling them!
 
2017-10-03 01:58:12 AM  

lindalouwho: Sorry for paging you for nothing, fus.


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.
