Lol true. It would be cool if the guilds were active in this show though.

Its not impossible, they have been really building and expanding the concepts and using characters you would not expect without taking away from its main cast. While I don't know if the guilds would be shown, it would be cool.

The take on these characters while the shell is still there or the skeleton of them, what they've done with them has been handled well.

The general look of the powers is done well too, very good with special effects.

And in yesterday's episode the cause and effect of not using the powers probably or knowing that you could be hurting the person was done well. Despite the fact, they just had to leave, that character with the memory thing didn't want to leave the agent that way and I liked that humanizing element. The fact the agent will go through certain anguish again will just make him even more dangerous.

How was the first season? I'm pretty behind on shows - haven't even watched Season 2 of Legion yet  :-[

The first season of the Gifted wasn't bad. A tad angsty but not horrendous.

I ended up binge watching the whole season, and yeah, I enjoyed it. I mean, obviously it's not the perfect X-men show (as no X-men A-listers are part of the cast), but there are enough B and C-listers to make the show interesting. I would say Polaris was a stand out for me, plus they add a few more characters later on which I thought made things more interesting. I don't care for the family though. Honestly, the writers could write them out and I wouldn't even care.


And yes, watch season 2 of Legion!  :)

The second season of "The Gifted" is underway. It's not bad but .... the last episode that aired this week was incredibly gritty in certain areas.  I'm not sure I'm liking some of the direction.
I know I don't like where Polaris' story has gone. But what can you do.

There is some "questionable" things. I get the ideology, to show desperation and the willingness to go to extremes but sometimes its too much or doesn't seem to work, if that makes sense.
There is a recurring character who is back and I just can't care about his plight. It doesn't work.

I probably won't keep with this show.

Show's ok. I find Polaris a bit too self righteous but I suppose it sort of makes sense. My biggest gripe with the show is how they insist on creating new characters instead of using one of the literally hundreds available. I think the problem lies with the writers being good ones, but not much in the way of real X-Men fans. Its a lot to know, and if Disney/Marvel aren't REALLY involved, they are probably using a lot of wiki, trades, and memory derived from XTAS.
Rogue being flung vagina-first at the first male that pops up on her radar isn't how I'd define "romance," but Marvel must be using a different dictionary than me.- NicoPony

It's on Tuesday Nights, I watched the latest episode and I'm confused now. Its gotten far too complex for its own good.
I don't know where Polaris sent her child, but she sent her away. Why? I don't know. Carlos got completely screwed with this development. 

The bald guy and his righteousness is more than annoying.

While I don't keep up with everything that is canceled, I can tell you that according to Gamespot.com
They have a list of shows that are done.

The Gifted is one of those. I'm not surprised.
