Marvel's The Gifted

FOX has picked up The Gifted for a full season. The series revolves around 2 siblings who gain powers (the girl is a telekenetic) and their parents (Amy Acker and Stephen Moyer) on the run. Some minor (and possibly familiar) X-Men characters will be appearing in the series.

Neat tho that Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin are married and now both are part of the X-Men universe. With Anna as Rogue and Moyer as the father of the main mutant kids in The Gifted.

Here's the teaser for The Gifted (full trailer and scene will appear next week during the fall upfronts):

No. Anna's hubby is in the series as the dad of the mutant kids.

Scanning Raph's Girl original post made me think that. Her clarification and rereading makes more sense.

What were your thoughts on Legion? Excepting some WTF-ery, I've heard mostly good things about it.

I can't really put my finger on it, but I just couldn't get into the story. I'm glad others are enjoying it though, but it's just not for me.

Legion is great. It's not what you'd expect from an X-Men TV show though. The Gifted may the one to scratch that itch.

I think it's going to start to get real confusing for average watchers which ones are the real Marvel shows and which ones are the Fox shows.

Agreed. You could strip Legion of all its X-Men ties and it'd still be a good show.

This show looks BORING Though its cool seeing Coby Bell from Burn Notice in a new show. so is it against Law that X-men isn't aloud any color and has to be always dark?

I read that Sentinels were going to be in this series. Please tell me those little mini robots aren't what they were talking about.

The group that's hunting down the mutants is called The Sentinal Services. Those little robots are just some of the weapons they use.

We're never, ever going to get proper Sentinels in any iteration, are we?

The average watchers don't care.
And in their not caring they're getting the most accurate Marvel experience possible.

I envy them.

Nope, not as long as Fox still has the rights.

That's the thing tho. This series will be airing on FOX so we can easily get proper Sentinals...but it looks like we're just getting a normal human group CALLED Sentinals.
