‘The Gifted’ Season 2 Finale Review: It Is Our Choices

…that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities, or so the quote goes. The Gifted season 2 (series?) finale, titled “oMens,” examines those choices as sacrifices are made and not so subtle messages about our current political landscape…

‘The Gifted’ 2×15 Review: Too Far To Give Up Now

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” I thought it better to start with a quote, especially one that pretty much encapsulates everything “Monsters” is, everything this season has been, than to…

‘The Gifted’ 2×14 Review: The Definition of Insanity

My issue with The Gifted is this, and it’s always been the same. When this show is firing on all cylinders, it’s amazing, the kind of show you wish you could binge because you don’t want to stop watching, you…

‘The Gifted’ 2×12 Review: The Beginning of the End

‘The Gifted’ 2×10 Review: One Thousand Percent

It won’t surprise anyone to hear that The Gifted‘s mid-season finale, titled “gaMe changer,” explored the duality between being ‘normal’ and being, well ‘gifted,’ as it dabbled in the same philosophical discussion that has sustained years and years of the X-Men/Brotherhood…

‘The Gifted’ 2×04 Review: Friend or Foe?

New battle lines are being drawn every day on The Gifted, and “outMatched” takes that even further than any other episode has before, as Polaris is back from maternity leave of sorts, and ready to kick ass once again –…

‘The Gifted’ 2×03 Review: Love is the Brightest Star

…in life’s darkest skies, I read somewhere, and it’s stuck with me. The whole idea kept playing in my head as I watched “CoMplications,” one of the best episodes The Gifted has delivered in its entire run. Because, isn’t everything about…

‘The Gifted’ 2×01 Review: Both Sides, Now

A lot has changed in the months that have transpired from the Season 1 finale to now. And yet, so much hasn’t. There are still “two sides” to this story (or is it three? Do the humans get a side?),…

‘The Gifted’ 1×11 Review: A Tale of Two Cities

A new year brings with it new promises, and yet, if this episode of The Gifted reminds us of something it’s that no matter how much we wish for it, things don’t just change for the better because we want…
