One of my boys are sick and they’ve been up literally all night, so I’m not at work today.
He’s eventually gone to sleep and my wife is away to try get some shut eye as well, mother in law has taken my other son, so I’ve taken the unepexcted opportunity to catch up on some tv.
I just watched episode 2 of The Gifted and I thought it was fantastic.
I’m really surprised by how much I’m enjoying this already.
I’ve started to care about the characters and what is happening to them, which is not often the case within 2 episodes, especially in a show of this type.
When I saw the trailers I thought it was a bunch of bland actors and a show that would just got thru the motions - they’ve actually casted this really well.
Good cast, delivering good lines of a well plotted, well paced script - and it looks great.
And yes, the cast are nice to look at but they play their roles well - I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m not interested in watching a show filled with Lena Dunhams. Show me the beautiful people.
I’m glad I gave it the chance - two thumbs up - thanks to those whose posts persuaded me to give it a try.
