Disclaimer: I have written this review based on all the episodes, which are out, currently that is only episode 1 :=)
A show being set within the X-Men universe that followed a completely different cast and narrative than that of familiar characters we've previously seen portrayed.
My initial thoughts were negative, to say the least. I mean just hear how does the above read. Scary!
I was pretty sure this show will fail. So naturally, when I was given the chance to watch the pilot and bolster my ego by proving myself right on why this show would fail I jumped at it.
Now I can say with confidence that not only am I impressed with the direction and vision for this show, but I have a genuine interest on where this story will end up. On of the most interesting, to me, parts of this series so far is, that it isn't just trying to spin things in a new way, it's just trying to use genre identities to cover new ground. I didn't expect such a high quality from creator Matt Nix.
To sum it up, gave this show a shot.
