Storyline

A boy appears in the world in his birthday suit, only alone in the woods, as an adolescent without any memories, history or even a belly-button, only some instincts, as if he wasn't even born, and enough dexterity to handle a rattle-snake bare-handed. Just for being naked in public, he's handcuffed and committed to juvenile detention, where employee Lou Daniels renames the 'John Doe' Kyle, after his own brightest son, for he shows as much intelligence as lack of education in everything, from using daily objects to human behavior, a painful learning process among cocky thugs. Psychologist Nicole Trager takes Kyle home 'till Monday' as she promises kind husband Stephen. Their own kids, who weren't consulted at all, are understandably all but eager to take in and help caring for another of ma's stray weirdos, but gradually discover Kyle's clumsiness is just lack of experience, his nature as kind as his IQ high. Young Josh shows an open mind, quickly finds his new bunking buddy ... Written by KGF Vissers

Accessible, smart, entertaining, interesting, refreshing and inspiring pilot
6 June 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Watching this pilot was a great and unexpected surprised. I never really paid attention to it until someone mentioned John Doe, the TV show, in an article about best cliffhangers. Then I discovered that the shows were actually quite similar.

The one thing that astonished me is that it's quite smart when the audience is the whole family. So it's quite accessible and that's a brilliant concept because these days some productions are just all black or all white. Kyle XY deals with very important topics like family issues, learning process, relationships… The protagonist almost looks like a genius baby doing his first steps and we're here to witness his epic adventure. Moreover the acting was quite good, from the children to the adults. There were also some eye candy scenes that kids and teenagers should really like as they reminded me of films like American Pie. However I found a fighting one was over the top because the character who was involved wasn't supposed to do what he did. I like to compare it to The Matrix scene where Neo first have to learn kung fu before practicing it against Morpheus in the virtual dojo. But in the end what I really appreciated was the family vibe and how well the relationships were covered. After only a few minutes you should already care about all these interesting characters and I already want to learn more about them. Some arcs were also introduced and they should convince you to watch the other episodes because they bring new elements like mystery and attraction.

To sum things up it was a great way to introduce us to the show. The last time I was so gladly surprised was probably after watching Eureka's pilot. It felt so refreshing and the story seems quite inspiring. It's really nice to see that some talented people have managed to create such a brilliant production.
