We’ve discussed the Fox series “The Gifted” a few times in the past here on the websites Film and Television area and even showcased their unique trailers (seen HERE in the event you missed it). If you loved the series, then please get ready to yell because the second season begins tonight. Let’s check out the season premiere poster along with the premise and casting. I’ll add in some thoughts at the close.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I mentioned before that I enjoyed the first season and I will be honest here and say that I was originally not even interested in giving it the slightest chance in my viewing time. Fortunately, I recorded the full season on DVR and was able to binge it all in a couple of days when I was a bit under the weather. If you’ve trusted any of our superhero show discussions in the past then take my word on this one, it was a lot better than I had expected so you might want to record the new season while you scan around to see the first one somehow. If you purchase such shows, there is a link to Amazon.com to buy this, and you can also enjoy some of the character promotional posters that I shared HERE. Until we meet again my friends.
