Yeah, it seemed like a sound plan. I mean... I was open to Marvel convincing me the Inhumans were worth a sh*t. A rushjob, cheap TV show simply isn't going to do that. The best they can hope for is sub-Agents of SHIELD season 1 premiere numbers, then quickly diminishing returns.

And look at the trailers. This is what they're leading with. Imagine if ratings slump and they get, like, a season 2 with an even lower budget. Yikes. "Lockjaw went away to college!" or something.

Oh, almost certainly.

Lockjaw wouldn't stop peeing on Medusa's rosebushes, so Black Bolt had him put down...

Or maybe something not so dark. Maybe he just went to Obedience/Teleporter Repair School.

Seems like Marvel is aware on how crappy the CGI looks, that they are doing everything they can to fix it.

That does look way better. As in, hair that might actually be real hair and not a $5 Goodwill Halloween wig.

Looks like IMAX has decided to shorten the theatrical run of the 1st two episodes, to just 1 week instead of 2 weeks.

Everytime I see these trailers I can't help but think it was a big mistake trying to modernize the Inhumans like this. It just doesn't look right at all.

Apparently 105% of the Inhumans budget was for camera, and the producers tossed their couch cushions looking for spare quarters to buy the cheapest CGI they could find?

I really hope Marvel avoids using Buck in the future after this.

The review came from IGN but they took it down, maybe they weren't supposed to post it yet.

I read that earlier. Brutal. Not telling me anything I couldn't figure out for myself after the trailer, though.

I saw one review say that they didn't even bother to remove an episode break halfway in. "Previously on Inhumans...."

I was willing this to be amazing since anything less than that would jumped on by paranoid fans who believe Marvel is trying to replace the X-Men with the Inhumans. Sadly this looks not even decent.

Marvel should have just stuck to their guns and done an Inhumans movie. It seems that Infinity War will take more story cues from Hickman's Infinity than the original Infinity Gauntlet and I could see the scene of Black Bolt evacuating and destroying Attilan to prevent it falling to Thanos would have been a shoo in and cool to see in live action but it seems very unlikely now.

Inhumans is now officially the Fetch of the MCU. It's just never gonna happen.

Ok, just got back from seeing this with my dad. 5 total people at our screening lol.

First of all, it's not as terrible as everyone is saying and the report of them not bothering to remove a "previously on Inhumans" recap between the two parts was a lie. It plays as a short movie. Also a post credit scene and then a trailer for the rest of the season.

So the acting was mostly really good and the effects were what you'd expect from an ABC show. That giant IMAX screen doesn't do Lockjaw any favors, he'll surely look better on the small screen.

The main cast is interesting and likable, but I don't get how we're supposed to root for these guys as our protagonists. They're living high on the hog while upholding a generations old caste system. I mean, there's sympathetic villains... and then there's Maximus. He's just plain right. Maybe they'll turn everything on its head and make sense of this, but right now that's the show's main problem.

So if you like Agents of Shield at all, you're gonna enjoy this at least a little bit. I can not recommend spending $20 on an IMAX ticket for it though.

Advertising by ABC for the remaining episodes are billing the series as "complete"
