Lauren Strucker: Mom, accept it. Andy is a mutant. That's how mutant abilities first appear - it's moments of stress or danger. Dad talks about this all the time.

Originally to be called X-Men: The Gifted, the X-men like the mutants in this television show have disappeared, gone in the shadows. However we are in the Marvel universe, Stan Lee makes a brief appearance.

The first episode, directed by Bryan Singer focuses on the Strucker family.

Reed Strucker (Stephen Moyer) prosecutes mutants. His wife Caitlin (Amy Acker), teenage daughter Lauren (Natalie Alyn Lind) and younger son Andy (Percy Hynes White) have an aspiring middle class lifestyle.

Reed's world in this opening episode is turned upside down when he finds out both his children are mutants. Now the family are on the run from the Sentinel Services who are using all sorts of hi tech devices to find them.

Reed needs from the mutant rebellion, people who he himself have persecuted.

The opening episode is squarely a television universe, despite some good special effects nothing felt cinematic. This is all rather dark looking and in some ways looked cheap.

We see the various Gifted people with X-Men abilities and the troubles they go through, a trouble now shared by the Struckers.
