Prepare for more mutants in the first trailer for new X-Men show The Gifted

Superheroes are expanding from the silver screen to the small one, with DC and Marvel both rolling out tons of shows on The CW (DC) and Netflix (Marvel). Now Fox is entering the race in a big way, throwing us into new areas of the X-Men universe with LEGION and their newest show, THE GIFTED. The first trailer dropped for the latter last night, and some mutant action is certainly awaiting us...as well as some taut family drama.

The show is being executive produced by Bryan Singer – the patriarch of the X-MEN movie universe  in addition to him directing the show’s pilot episode. If LEGION seemed more like a cerebral affair this one seems going the route of a family drama. The idea of how parents – and people in general – accept/reject their loved ones when they find out they’re mutants has been underlying theme of the X-Men series, and now the show looks to dig into that directly. I didn’t watch LEGION, despite everyone telling me to, and I can’t imagine I’ll watch this one either. But for X-Men die-hard, this could be a worthy addition to the pile.

THE GIFTED with Stephen Moyer and Amy Acker will debut this fall.

I'm taking a "wait and see" attitude

Overall, it looks kinda meh. The only draw is Stephen Moyer; I really liked him in True Blood.

Its a nice option as a more straight forward X-Men series, which I think has been a long time coming. I can't tell if this will be good or not by this trailer. Effects seem decent, but the acting and script seems fairly serviceable. It is kind of tough for something so ordinary to compete with other, more risky programs like the Netflix stuff and Legion, but it could be good to have something like this in addition to those.

meh

I like Nix, but this looks a bit of the same old, especially with the Hulu's similar 'Runaways' on the way. I'll at least look at the pilot but this trailer did nothing for me.
