This is not a bad program. But nearly all of the elements of this show have been seen before -- many many times before. Do we really need yet another "mutant themed" television series or movie franchise?
Disney seems determined to milk every last drop of programming out of the Marvel franchise. While there is a place for this type of entertainment, I think we are well past the saturation point.
This program adds nothing to the genre. All of the elements of the pilot have been seen before -- many many times before. The elements of the show have a "been there seen it all before" aspect to them. This is particularly evident in the special effects.
The script is so poorly written that it does not create empathy for any of the characters. The cast is lifeless and underwhelming. Anson Mount, who is normally a dynamic and personable actor plods through his scenes like an action figure. The other cast members, who have less experience, are even more lifeless and inert.
I wish Disney would give this genre a rest. I long to see any of these Actors play real human beings with real programs. For now, I am going to pass on "The Inhumans"
I am particularly disappointed in the performance of Anson Mount. He is normally a passionate and engaging Actor. Mount stumbles through every scene as if he is heavily medicated. The other actors who have less experience are even worse.
