Presenting: The Comic-Con 2017 Official Trailer: “The Gifted”

Back in May we posted the first trailer for the upcoming Fox X-Men family of shows with “The Gifted” and during July’s SDCC, another trailer was unveiled for all to see. With so many shows catering to my fellow geeks and I, I’ve been placing them up some time afterwards to keep the attention flowing and since we still have plenty of time before the show actually airs. Here is the trailer from the Comic Con International: San Diego.

The Premise: Two ordinary parents take their family on the run from the government when they discover that their children have mutant abilities, and join an underground community of mutants who have to fight to survive.

The Cast/Characters:
Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker
Amy Acker as Caitlin Strucker
Sean Teale as Marcos Diaz/Eclipse
Jamie Chung as Clarice Fong/Blink
Coby Bell as Jace Turner
Emma Dumont as Lorna Dane/Polaris
Blair Redford as John Proudstar/Thunderbird
Natalie Alyn Lind as Lauren Strucker
Percy Hynes White as Andy Strucker
Stan Lee makes a cameo appearance in the pilot

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Since I felt that I had said it all before with the first trailer I will repeat my words which ran like this “Nope. Very little interest in this one and its likely due to how “meh” that “Legion” ended up leaving me. The other part of this that I don’t care for is all of this disregard for proper continuity just to have a character who is an X-Men or Evil Mutant featured. Thunderbird has been dead for decades as fandom knows and Polaris was an X-Men at one point as well. Also with green hair (unless we get that going forward). I’m at the point where I am pretty tired of other studios having access to the licenses for these properties and just want Marvel to be in control of the whole enchilada. It’s better for the characters and its surely better for the fans”. I will admit that this longer trailer seems a bit more interesting but its all the continuity recreation that is driving me nuts. I will likely program the DVR to see a few episodes but don’t really feel that I will be investing much into the series. Dear Marvel Studios, please stop making deals with other parties to have your own characters back. Let their efforts fail and the rights will return faster than you think. What do you readers think about this new trailer? You down? You not down? Let me know down in those comments below.

What do you think? Will you be watching this one?

Airing Tonight: “True Blood” Season 7 (6/22/2014)

“This is the end, my only friend the end……” The brief lyric from the classic tune by The Doors seems rather appropriate as fans of the Supernatural series on HBO prepare themselves for the first episode of the final season of “True Blood”….queue dramatic music…….

Airing Tonight: “True Blood” Season 6 (6/16/2013)

Got blood? Well if you don’t there is surely a lot to go around as HBO’s original series “True Blood” returns for its sixth season. Are you excited?

There were a lot of weird turns in Season Five and as I might have said in one of these kind of posts in the not too distant past, if you are interested in the storyline and HAVE NOT seen the up to the date stuff that you should close this window or click back to read another posting. I will spoil some of the S5 occurrences starting now. Alright, they left, so now you had to expect that Tara would be turned to the Vamp side and for those who felt that we dispatched Russell Edgington far too easily will be pleased as punch to have found him back for some sinister action. He gets his just desserts soon enough and I admit that the Ifrit storyline regarding Terry’s past as a marine was unique but maybe a tad too slow in delivering. Personally I also felt that The Vampire Authority was like something out of The X-Men based on the weapons and devices that they were using. It was like watching something only previously thought of in the comics page. We met up with Lilith, the Mother of all Vampires and she is a nasty one, but what did her blood end up doing to Bill Compton as the series closed up? Well, it appeared to make him something right out of a nightmare and that brings us to S6. Whew.
