On the other hand - agent Turner and Campbell are/were very good. I like the Gifted because it nicely play with grey area - actually almost nobody is totally evil (OK, Mr Campbell and sisters are very close).
Iron Fist's story makes basic sense. I don't give it points for that.

I'd say The Gifted's story makes some basic sense because you can see all the seams where they stitched it together from other stuff. The female characters, aren't awful. Simply outside of Polaris, they aren't characters. Which is a huge problem with the show. It is a bunch of plot points, with no story, no characters that aren't super basic. And I'd say there are plenty of overtly evil folk.

All this being said, comparing Iron Fist and the Gifted isn't good for the Gifted. We aren't talking Legion, the Punisher, Daredevil, Jessica Jones here. I mean, I guess at least it isn't the Inhumans in that regard. But the Gifted could and should be a lot better imo.

According to the upfronts and new scheduling that Fox presented, The Gifted will be shifting from Mondays to Tuesdays.

Now to see how some here will immediately find a reason to only see that as a negative.

Not that I personally view it as a negative but I wonder how it will fair against Flash. Personally I have no issue since I PVR shows so I will just watch one at 8:15(enough time that i can fast forward through commercials so the show is only 45 minutes), the other at 9. To be perfectly honest given how I am starting to get annoyed by some choices on Flash, Gifted might be my 8:15 show

The new timeslot wouldn't improve its rating. I guess like Legixn's second season ratings, it would decrease a lot.
