Interesting on their analytics.... BUT IMHO, I think the meh of Iron Fist could have tainted this particular series of shows.... But I have watched all of the series and I hold The Defenders in pretty high regard for their series.

Interesting read....

Inhumans does look kind of suck

I liked SHIELD as I got into it.

So I DRV'd Marvel's Inhumans Friday night and just got down to watching it.......

The old saying "that's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back" doesn't even begin to describe how BAD it truly was.

First, the whole "Inhumans" thing is nothing more than a rip off of the X-Men, and not even a good one.

Second, the "King and Queen" (ie: the good guys) are about as unlikable as unlikable get. Black Bolt comes off as an arrogant prick and the Medusa is full of herself.

Third, the "bad guy" Maximus is probably the most likable character on the show.

I can only hope that "The Gifted" is better...... And that's not a very high bar.

I never had a problem with the Inhuman story line that popped into a animated Spiderman series I was watching last year but the Inhuman angle in AoS and what looks to be more its own deal in Inhumans seems just to be not there. I am wondering if Marvel is overextending its hype train now.

Comics aside, I couldn't help but think that the introduction of the "Inhumans" into the AoS as well as potentially adding them to the MCU is nothing more than a lame attempt to cover up the fact that Fox has the rights to the X-Men.

It seems forced. It seems that they're trying to substitute Inhumans for the X-Men to try and keep some structure to various storylines that involve the X-Men.

Personally, I'd rather see if they can work out a deal with Fox for the X-Men like they did with Sony & Spidey and spare us the Inhumans.

OK, this isn't a Netflix show, but I just watched "The Gifted" from Monday night.

To say it's 10X better than Inhumans would be doing a disservice.

I thought it was excellent. It seemed more "real" if that makes any sense.

Combine that with the fact that Inhumans was GOD AWFUL, and I think Marvel fans will like The Gifted.
