Love! Love! Love! It's thrilling from the opening seconds till the last moment of the premiere. I absolutely love this show! The family is wonderful, as are the Gifted as their own (chosen) family. The conflict thrown in everyone's way is so well-written and introduced. Everyone's acting is superb. Love!

UPDATED and DOWNGRADED: Hooked after the first episode! With Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker how could this go wrong? This is the first show of the fall season that I was looking forward to and the pilot did not disappoint. I usually wait until three episodes to write a review, but no need, this is a great show that can be watched by the whole family yet it is not your typical family show.
EDIT: oooh, it declines in quality by the end of season 1 and gets pretty predictable. I'm hanging on by a thread for Stephen Moyer and hoping the 2nd season will be better.
2nd EDIT: It's October 2018, just four episodes into season 2 and I just can't do it. I value my time too much to watch this. Stephen Moyer, I will follow you almost anywhere, but not here.

Brilliant, all I can say for a pilot episode. Set in the X-Men universe, the X-Men have all disappeared and mutants are now being hunted down by a government group. This series is like a mix between the original series of 'Heroes' and the awesome show 'The Tomorrow People'.. So if you like those two shows THIS show is certainly for you. The pilot episode sets up the story, introduces you to some great mutants with awesome powers and gives you an insight to where the show is heading.. can't wait to watch more.

1st episode was amazingly good. We'll see if they can keep it up. Stan the man.

Unfortunately, 4 shows in and its already getting boring, bogged down in melodrama for no reason except that its cheap to film. I've decided to drop it already.

UPDATE: I dropped the show about half way through the first season, but when the second season started I watched th premier, and it was great. The second season is way better than the first and it was definitely in my top 10 shows of the year.

Unlike most of the super hero shows, the powers that all these X-Men related mutants have are very unique. And I like the war brewing with the human vigilante groups. If you have Marvel-fatgue, give this show a try, you will be regenerated.

Mutants Live!
This started out good and I only anticipate it getting better.
This will definitely get me through my X-Men drought.
Look for relative newcomers, Emma Dumont, Natalie Alyn Lind, Percy Hynes White, and veterans like Amy Acker and Stephen Moyer to knock it out of the park.
One episode down with five to go, again a show that definitely needs a full season..
EDIT: These anti-climatic episode endings, are killing me...

The storyline is somewhat weak. The characters are trapped in a moral dilemma of "should I use my powers to this or that" and that makes the show tiring to watch.

Amazing show. Great underlying story. Some thinking to do about society. An interesting idea on evolution.
Again a show that was cancelled too early.
