The most disappointing aspect of the whole thing is that it looked and felt cheap. It came across as so half-assed and poorly developed. It looked like it had half the budget for a typical Agents of SHIELD episode. It’s only 8 episodes, not a 22 or even 13 episode season. They could have spent more on it.
I don’t know why Disney/Marvel rushed to get this out. I don’t see why it was so urgent to get it out n the air RIGHT NOW. If they had taken their time to properly develop it, it could have been something special. Without getting into spoilers, there were some really stupid decisions made for the story and characters that could been addressed with more time and probably a better showrunner.
I really feel bad for the actors, especially Iwan Rheon. They’re doing the best they can with what they’ve been given but they deserve so much better. Iwan is the best thing on the show but he’s been given shit to work with.
While I doubt anything will significantly change, I hope the Inhumans at least gives Disney/Marvel some pause to reflect on what went wrong here.
