Well they did say that episode 2 was a bigger episode, though I was impressed with everything they were able to fit in episode 1.

Name dropping the Mutant Liberation Front was very, very cool.

Also, the July 15th Incident will be interesting to see unfold.

No clue. Hopefully they actually let us know instead of having to guess.

This isn't going to be a "mutant emergency of the week" type show, because that will get boring pretty fast.

Quite good episode that was. Loved Polaris kicking butt in jail, even IF she got some kickback for it, but hey, she showed that she's not gonna just be a lackey to the humans. She needs to start a Sisterhood of Mutants in Lakewood. Take a page from Dad's example.

Now I'm definitely in.

I think in the first episode there was the "shock" of the expectation, because I was expecting for more than it was. Now that I'm aware what type of show this is, I was able to enjoy more.

I loved them exploring the prejudice against mutants. Both in the beggining, with the teenage girl, and when the doctor thinks Catlin is a victim of domestic violence.

Also, loving all the references. This show is not as good as Legion, but it's more in the x-universe. Way more. And it's quite exciting to see all that reference.

i really liked the episode, I had to chuckle at the emergency room bit. All I can say so true to life for some people. Anyway I'm really interested about the doctors plan for the sibilings. That was pretty nefarious the way he brought that up.

I thought this was definitely better episode than the pilot, but it did kinda feel like nothing happened by the end of it. But man, they have not heard of doing metaphor subtly, huh?

Really liked the stuff with Lorna in jail, the domestic abuse scene kinda shocked me and Clarice's powers were crazy. This episode got me on board even more than the pilot.
