    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.

    Well, season 1 down, and am liking it very well.. Let's hope they don't do to this, what they did with the Tomorrow people and can it after only 1 season!

    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.

    Some casting news. From an Empire alum, so Fox is keeping it in the family.

    https://variety.com/2018/tv/news/grace-byers-the-gifted-season-2-fox-1202831287/

    There's no mention of a last name...could it be Reeva Payge? If not, could just be an original character for the show and, as such, we know who won't like that decision.

    Bunch of cool new posters released. No look at the Black Queen so far though.

    The Punisher ducked. Couldn't make it through three episodes and Punisher is one of my favorite comics.

    Dawn of the Mutant Age.

    Now come on, which of you will be first to gripe and air out some grievances about this show and its original characters?

    Holy Crap, if the season is half as good as the trailer, I'm so in.

    Really top notch production values, they got a real budget boost and seem to be firing on all cylinders to start off with.

    Cast interviews

    Jesus did they get new cameras or something. Season 2 looks cinematic as hell. It looks like an actual movie. I'm actually blown away.
