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.
