    The Inhumans gets eyes because it is a mini series
    and will be over soon
    The resolution of this show will require major amounts of Plot Stupidity
    Why exactly is Medusa seemingly the main characters

    and OH . . . That guy takes one for the team . . . . DID NOT SEE THAT COMING /Sarcasm

    I keep watching inhumans because I find it a fascinating case study in how bad a tv show can be and still be put on the air.

    Finally watch this week's episode
    Looks like they going to explain why they chose to use a updated
    version of the Nazi Von Strucker kids
    as the framework for the show . . . .

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fenris_(comics)
    http://marvel.wikia.com/wiki/Fenris_(Earth-616)

    I always thought it was curious they would select that as a framework

    I just finished the Inhumans recently.....it's honestly one of the worst TV shows I've ever seen. I'm not sure who wrote this series, but they should never work again.

    The writing on the most episode of The Gifted was beyond terrible. Plot holes, obtuse, unnatural expository dialog... I literally cringed several times. "Just don't read my mind about that time I experimented in college" was perhaps the single most forced, hackneyed, uncomfortable bit of dialog I've ever heard in my life.

    The writing was better prior to this episode, I think, so hopefully an anomaly. Its a young adult show, so there is a ton of "who is in love with who" teen stuff and a ton of heavy handed lessons about self control and other social lessons for angry 14 year olds written in.

    Let me recommend "The Runaways" on Hulu. Only 3 episodes thus far, but I'm considering it in the same "class" as The Gifted, (Marvel based young adult superhero show) and by comparison, it crushes it.

    everything focusing on the central family gets cringeworthy and feels so force
    Literally every other story line and people is better

    I read the RunAways Comic book when it came out
    I have to hear more about how it goes before I invest in it

    I'm loving The Gifted so far, the acting and writing is above average which is more than most shows can say nowadays. I'm in it till they **** it up horribly, which I don't see happening unless the showrunner gets fired.

    Dropped The Gifted after season one. Is it worth picking it up again?
