I’ll see you here just before 9pm.

8:52pm – I’m here!

8:53pm – If you check in on a weekly basis, you may have noticed I wasn’t here last Sunday – apologies, I was unable to blog along to The Gifted episode ten. However, earlier today I published a post about episode ten, so feel free to catch up now.

8:54pm – Yeah, it’s fair to say I’ve been a little busy as of late. Sometimes life stuff gets in the way of the fun stuff.

8:55pm – I’ve yet to pop on the TV for this week’s episode of The Gifted. I will be switching on the television momentarily.

8:56pm – Currently watching YouTube videos about toys.

8:57pm – I’m becoming addicted to YouTube videos about toys.

8:58pm – TV is now on. So, what will The Gifted have in store for us tonight?

8:59pm – Wow, this is the first time I’ve put on FOX and NCIS isn’t on! What gives?!


9:02pm – Previously on The Gifted… ah, so this episode will feature Erg and presumably we’ll see more backstory about the Von Struckers.

9:03pm – Yep – We’re in Von Strucker/Fenris flashback territory.

9:04pm – Oooh… flamey sword! Where can I get one of those?

9:05pm – This week’s episode is directed by Maggie Kiley.

9:06pm – Andy has changed his hair again. I notice these things.

9:07pm – The power to move furniture? He must be handy on a trip to IKEA.

9:13pm – First ad break of the night.

9:20pm – Turner continues on a dangerous path.

9:26pm – An evil force that steals children?

9:27pm – Brandishing a gun in front of children? Oh, Turner – what are you doing?

9:30pm – What a waste of a bottle of cola.

9:31pm – Ad break two.


9:32pm – While the advert break is on I will you in on what is to come. So, next week is the 12th episode, hoMe. The episode will air on Tuesday in the US and next Sunday in the UK.

9:33pm – The following week, the 13th episode will air. Episode 13 is called teMpted.

9:39pm – “I’m sorry… I have unresolved feelings for my ex, who also happens to be the mother of my child. Plus, I’m part of a fugitive group of mutants – so I’ve got a lot going on. Oh and we’re in a sewer, which is pretty unromantic. Did a turd just float by?”

9:42pm – Turner has blood on his hands – both metaphorically and literally.

9:44pm – SMH. Oh Turner, why do you lie?

9:47pm – Into the final ad break. Are we liking this episode?

9:52pm – Are these adverts still on?

9:53pm – FAKE NEWS!

9:54pm – Turner’s life is falling apart and for what? He’s lost his daughter, his wife, and he’s lost sight of who he is.

9:57pm – Er… old hair? How lovely.

9:58pm – We’ve seen Andy go nuts (see last episode) and now it’s time for Lauren to go nuts too.

9:59pm – “You’re never safe.”

10pm – Is Reeva trying to stir up anti-mutant sentiment? I guess we’ll have to tune in next week to find out.

10:01pm – OK, that’s it for this week. I’ll be back with The Gifted next Sunday night.
