Fox’s The Gifted – It’s Serviceable. Michelle’s Review

As a lifetime fan of comic-books even I’m starting to get burned out by the genre. Fox Tv’s Gifted, is TV’s latest attempt at bringing Superheroics to our small screen. Fox only provided the pilot episode to review which means take this review with a grain of salt as we all know pilots generally suck.  Yes, I love The X-Men and it’s nice to see Marvel finally bring proper mutants to the TV Landscape, but so far the efforts have felt low budget and pretty depressing. We are in for a rough ride when their supernatural comedy Ghosted had better visual flair and sfx than this. The Gifted premieres, Monday, Oct 2nd on Fox.

TV Review: APB A Bland Cop Show with Political Agenda

What happens when a tech billionaire turns his attention to fighting crime? We get Batman. However, Fox can’t use that character so they gave us Gotham. I’m digressing fast, where was I? Right, billionaire fighting crime. We get Fox’s latest television show APB. This show is every conservative’s wet dream; it basically advocates the full privatization of the police. Did no one see Robocop? There’s even a cop named Murphy. APB, Premieres Monday, Feb 6 at 9pm.

TV Review: 24 Legacy: Lacks Urgency

For years its been threatened, but now we finally have a Jack Bauer free 24. Fans never asked for this, it was always the Producers and Kiefer Southernland’s goal/dream to be able to continue 24 without him having to be involved – on camera. I would imagine it’s a pretty intense role to play. So, Kiefer’s desire to get out is understandable. So now we have another attempt to revive 24 with 24 Legacy. Only we don’t get 24 hours to save the world, it’s only 12. 24: Legacy premieres Sunday, February 5th after the Superbowl and will air Monday nights.

“Second Chance” Preview: Fun, Unique and Worthy of a First Chance

Second-Chance-key-art

[SPOILER ALERT: This article contains spoilers from the new episode]

Second Chance premieres on FOX on Wednesday nights (9/8C) and is intriguing enough to be worth your time. Pilots are always a difficult thing to pull off since they have only 45 minutes to introduce characters, provide adequate back-story, and establish the driving force of the series. It is no surprise that things may feel a bit rushed. They also need to be fascinating enough so that the viewer would be interested in tuning in to the series in the weeks to follow. Second Chance delivers a solid pilot covering all the requirements and sets up interesting themes to move the series forward. No doubt there are going to be some high expectations as the series evolves, considering the producers have some outstanding television credits as part of their resumes such as Life, Crisis, 24, Homeland, Tyrant, Law & Order: SVU, and Elementary.

Also, in case you missed it, be sure to check out the Eclipse interview  with Executive Producer Rand Ravich and stars Rob Kazinsky for some great character insights.

After a very strong pilot, Gotham returns for its second episode and already you can start to see a little pattern forming in the show’s initial formula. It’s too early to tell if this will make the show a little too predictable or not.
