Discussion in 'The Gifted' started by Sithborg, Jun 8, 2017.
Yeah, I was pretty shocked as well. New cameras and amped up set design.
Just finished watching season 1.
Really good show. Looking forward to season 2.
When you say cinematic, do you mean by 1970s, B-movie standards? Because Blade Runner 2049 or Fury Road this is not.
I mean cinematic-style editing, but the production values don't look that much better.
Costumes, hair and makeup work all look really on the cheap side.
So...Polaris is pregnant now? The dad has superpowers? Is the dad a mutant?
Big reveals of last season.
Dad's lineage is what made his kids mutants.
Sorta interesting. I tuned out before I got that far.
Watching Amy Acker on this makes me sad. They give her nothing.
Looks like Polaris is getting her headpiece this year. Emma Dumont has been saying in interviews for a bit now that hanging out with telepaths has made her want some head protection; I guess that was a hint.
Twenty bucks says she makes it out of that medallion from her dad we saw last year.
This Newsarama article could be concerning:
I honestly thought Fox's broadcast station was acquired by Disney. It's probably best that it wasn't, but this could be a concern for The Gifted beyond Season Two. I've said before that I think the co-production from Marvel Television/Jeph Loeb is going to help it because I don't think Disney will cut it at least until Marvel movies starts to include mutants. But, unless ABC wants to pick up the show or the Disney streaming network starts sooner than I'm expecting, that might be a problem for the show.
I disagree actually I think they gave her much to do even though she isn't a character from the comics or has superpowers. Also when i said the show looked cinematic I'm talking about how much better its lighting is and it's wider angles not because it's on the same level as Blade runner LOL. One is a dying network TV show while the other is big budget indie movie. Either way I don't think you can deny that the show got a budget increase. can't wait for this season
Good news on the Amy Acker front:
With the new season of The Gifted on the way, I know you have something to get me excited! What will make my jaw drop? Keith
Caitlin channeling a chiseled Sarah Connor sends my jaw south, and it sounds like well get a bit of that. As Amy Acker told me the other day, We got the script for the first episode [of Season 2], and it said Six months later, Caitlins face is hardened by grief, her body is hardened by six months of intense training and I was like, Uhhhh
someone could have mentioned that to me!, seeing as she only had five days to get pumping some iron. As for the now-infamous rumor of Caitlin swinging some steel, That has yet to come to fruition, Acker clarified. But I paid for sword-fighting lessons, so I feel like weve got to do something, right? (via TVLine)
Did not expect the mystery lady from last season to have those powers.
She showed them in the season finale for a quick second.
Emma Dumont shared the Season 2 banner on Twitter.
Only a week left, more like 6 days until Tuesday. So glad it's premiering earlier than everyone else.
They are airing the 2 hr season 1 finale tonight starting at 8 PM Eastern time
