Culture Dump #31: Is It Time For ‘The Simpsons’ to End?

by Simon Bland

Remember when Bruce Wayne was debating packing in the whole Batman thing in The Dark Knight and Harvey Dent suggested he might actually be on to something? “You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become a villain,” he said, shortly before becoming a villain himself. While it’s usually not advised […]

‘The Gifted 1×12: Extraction / 1×13: X-Roads’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

This week, The Gifted ends with a double episode. Making the finale a double bill brings a feature-length ending to the season dealing with not dealing with Dr. Campbell (Garret Dillahunt) but starting a new chapter where surprising lines are drawn. With Dr. Campbell attending an anti-mutant summit to try to drum up national support […]

‘The Gifted 1×11: 3 X 1′ Review

by Paul Metcalf

The end of the last episode of The Gifted finally revealed Esme’s (Skyler Samuels) secret, then left us hanging until the return after the Christmas break. What her character(s) give us in this episode though, is the return of a club that could take the show to the next level. Tensions are high at Mutant […]

‘The Gifted 1×10: eXploited’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Christmas may be days away, but that doesn’t mean that The Gifted is going to offer much cheer. In a world where the humans are the monsters, willing to do unspeakable things to the mutants, things are looking a little dark. With Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and Andy (Percy Hynes White) in the hands of […]

‘The Gifted 1×09: outfoX’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Now that we know about the origins of the Strucker family powers, The Gifted provides us with an interesting question. If Andy (Percy Hynes White) and Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) have the ability to wield hugely destructive power, should they use it? With the Struckers dealing with the news about Andy and Lauren, the rest […]

‘The Gifted 1×08: Threat of eXtinction’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When a new show is finding its feet, it often has the one episode that stands out as the moment it hooks the audience and has their full attention. The Gifted has had quite a few leading up to the eighth episode, but with Threat of eXtinction we learn some secrets that turn this from […]

‘The Gifted 1×07: eXtreme Measures’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

After all the action over the last few weeks, The Gifted slows down a little. Focusing on building tension in the mutant group, and showing how far Sentinel Services are willing to go, we are now seeing a build up to a possible war. This week Eclipse (Sean Teale) must do as promised and answer […]

‘The Gifted 1×06: Got Your siX’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

The Gifted is a show that maybe about mutants and their powers, but it is more than just another X-Men themed show. It is about family, and this week we see how the Strucker parents have to adapt to the fact their children are different. For those looking for more mutant action, we also see […]

‘The Gifted 1×05: boXed In’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

Since The Gifted began we’ve learnt little bits about Jace Turner (Cody Bell) but his actions have overshadowed his own personal story. This week though not only do we get to see what caused his vendetta against the mutants, but also see the impossible happen. He may actually be turning into a character we actually […]

‘The Gifted 1×04: eXit Strategy’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

If you are a fan of The Gifted, then you’ll probably feel the same way as me when I think it is time Stephen Moyer’s character was out of jail. Thankfully it appears the mutants have an eXit Strategy to get not only Reed (Moyer’s character) but Polaris (Emma Dumont) too. Plans are put into […]

‘The Gifted 1×03: eXodus’ Review

by Paul Metcalf

When I watched the first episode of The Gifted, one of the things I worried about was the lack of focus on family. Now that we are into the third episode though, thankfully, family is where it is finding its strength. Most importantly it is what is giving the story the much-needed heart. In an […]
