The Gifted is quite solid. There is some very shaky elements and it’s quite easy to tell that without Logan and Legion as forerunners this would struggle a little in finding a strong tone. I imagine that the Logan/Legion effect came in during pre-production and a lot of decisions on characters and setting were made before hand, so I expect the influence to become stronger as the show continues. Mutants on the run is all well and good, but ultimately we need to be running towards ‘something,’ I find a lot of ‘chase’ style shows can struggle if there is no solid end goal for the characters to reach for.
The Orville is genuinely trying to be Star Trek: TNG at times, without the pomp. It’s not managing to be what it wants to be just yet but it’s very watchable if you aren’t tuning in for any real depth. The guest stars have been quite cool - Liam Neeson and Charlize Theron, so far.
I don’t see the point in watching Inhumans. It’s flawed as a concept, I’ve never had faith it would work, as is.
