Season Two of X-Men spin-off show, The Gifted continues on UK TV screens tonight with episode nine – gaMe changer. I’ll be blogging along live from 9pm, so why not follow along too.
Read, digest and then come back for more.
I’ll see you here just before 9pm.
8:59pm – I’m here!
9:01pm – It’s starting.
9:02pm – If you just missed the announcement before this episode started, this is the mid-season finale. After tonight the show is on a break until January.
9:03pm – A flashback involving Twist. This can’t end well.
9:05pm – The Cuckoos are snappy dressers.
9:09pm – I feel like Turner has become radicalised.
9:11pm – First ad break of the night and so far, not much has happened. So, while we all await the next part of the episode let me tell you now – Lois Lane actress Amy Adams is no longer playing the role in Warner Bros. Pictures series of DC films. I just posted news if you want more details.
9:16pm – Andy is (once again) questioning this new mission he’s on.
9:18pm – A mention for the X-Men again. COME ON – TELL US WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM!
9:20pm – Don’t trust this woman – she’s clearly evil.
9:24pm – I wish someone would show me what an angry mutant was like – I need more action in this show!
9:25pm – Bloomin’ heck – another break!
9:32pm – Hmm… she wants more info on Andy. Yeah, she is not to be trusted.
9:35pm – Nine episodes in, things are happening but I still feel like The Gifted is simmering rather than bubbling. This show needs to pick up the pace.
9:38pm – Breaking Twist out of her prison is probably not the best idea. She is a little unhinged.
9:39pm – Yep – told ya. She wants revenge.
9:40pm – Has he just killed her?
9:41pm – Oh…
9:47pm – While we’re still in break No.3, you may like to know I’ve just posted a review round-up for Bumblebee. The initial buzz is good!
9:48pm – Turner is going to shoot a mutant, isn’t he?
9:49pm – So today’s mission is… *rolls dice* …to destroy the power dampening collars.
9:52pm – “No, I’m rescuing the human race.”
9:53pm – So, yeah – evil then.
9:54pm – Madeline should probably learn to keep quiet when she’s around mutants.
9:55pm – Thunderbird has best not die.
9:56pm – Andy and Polaris have just deactivated all of the mutant collars. There’s going to be a lot of pissed off mutants out there looking for revenge.
9:58pm – So… that’s it. Not a great mid-season finale if I’m being honest. I keep hoping the series will pick up, but I feel like it’s coasting a bit. Oh well, let’s see what January brings – there are seven episodes remaining.
9:59pm – Thank you for joining me for the last nine weeks. Let’s continue in the New Year.
