The story keeps you at your feet. It wakes up ancient instincts within. Acting quality varies but they all are aiming high. The storytelling is even better, always unexpected, and the core message is making you always question morality, right and wrong.
When i watch first moments of The Gifted using the word "mutan", i start feel very warm because this is X-Men's word. I know this is X-men TV series that don't have on TV for a long time. Then i see credit director by Bryan Singer. It's like home. Everyone involved in creating X-men are doing together a TV series of X-Men.
Tnx for the proposal balz, i vr heard that for many people and maybe it's gonna be the next series that a am gonna wtch
"Legion" is another tv series that's set in the X-Men universe. It's very twisted (in a great way) and surreal. I actually like it more than any of the x-men movies. You should watch it if you haven't.
Trek fans seem to have been priming themselves to hate this show for the best part of a year now, and the fact that the two-part premiere was genuinely excellent - far better than the last 4 films, Enterprise and Voyager - doesn't seem like it'll stop them. Strong script, pacing, production, characterization and concept, plus a realistic and complex look at how two societies can stumble into war; this is a show where actions have consequences. Finally the franchise is doing something bold and progressive for the prestige TV era, and attempting its most ambitious storytelling in two decades. Surely that's what fans want, isn't it? You'd think Trek lovers would be excited to have a new Trek series. But apparently not. It's clear to me that a significant proportion of the fandom wants comfort food. "Regressive listeners behave like children. Again and again, and with stubborn malice, they demand the one dish they have once been served. A sort of musical children's language is prepared for them: it differs from the real thing in that its vocabulary consists exclusively of fragments and distortions of the artistic language of music. [...] Regressive listening is always ready to degenerate into rage. The regressive listener would like to ridicule and destroy what yesterday they were intoxicated with [...]" - Adorno wrote this in 1938 about commercial jazz and its enthusiasts, but it applies equally well to fandoms generally, unfortunately including many professed Star Trek fans. You get a lot of people in fandoms who consume fetishistically - treating the object of their fandom not as a piece of drama, art or literature that's supposed to challenge, develop and break new ground, but as a comfort blanket of tropes - they just one that one reassuring staple served to them again and again. Fast food. This would seem to be why so many Trek fans are delighting in the critically-mauled Orville and its colorful brand of fast-food Star Trek while consistently attacking the well-received real thing (and believe me, Discovery is far more "the real thing" than the JJ Abrams movies or Enterprise). I don't think The Orville is terrible, but I do think that at present, there's unfortunately a greater appetite for its brand of lightweight, glitzily produced bros-in-space Trek than there is for a complex and tonally somber prequel featuring two non- white female leads. And that's a great pity; one that speaks to audience entitlement and a failure to treat Trek as what it is and what it was always supposed to be - drama. It only takes a quick look at some of the other reviews on here to see that this negative reception is not based the quality of the show's storytelling, but is either nitpicky in character (writing off the whole series because the Klingons have been redesigned, the ship's design/technology is wrong for the era, or even just the fact that Discovery is set in Trek's past and not its future) and/or has gendered and racial aspects, especially gendered. It's not automatically misogynist to criticise a Trek show with a female lead (Voyager was bad more often than it was good, and Janeway's characterization was highly inconsistent), but there has been a continuous strong undercurrent of misogyny (both dog-whistle and overt) in advance of and now in response to this excellent show. Everyone who thinks Discovery is decent and that it deserves a chance to thrive, whether Trek fans or general audiences new to the franchise, needs to support it, because otherwise we'll just be stuck with The Orville. Don't let the "fans" kill Discovery because they're too regressive in their consumption to recognize a creation of this quality - one that doesn't come around very often.
Hi! It depends. For sure is something different
Hey Tonia how's it going? is this show any good?
