Now days the play would be to dump it somewhere like Hulu. Even that seems unlikely at this point. One of the core problems with this property is that there are no diehard Inhumans fans. You were going to have to create an audience to clamor for it... they failed.

the characters and stories are pretty neat and have really good possibility to be compelling, but i think it would take a CGI budget of a game of thrones to pull it off well. there's basically no way to make a cheap inhumans, which it seems like they tried. initial reviews basically called it cosplay fan fiction.

IMO, the Inhumans are rarely interesting on their own, and really only work as guest stars.

yeah the best place for them would be a FF movie but that's never going to happen so...

i dunno a silent king of a subterranean group of misfits could be really good! the fact inhumans can take any shape or form really opens things up, they're basically just a freakier xmen.

instead, here is a review of the first episode:

About halfway through watching the two-hour premiere of Marvel’s Inhumans, I came up with a way to make it more bearable. If you watch it as a comedy, it almost works. In fact — and this is the first and last time I will ever say this — it’s a show that could actually be improved by a laugh track. For a fleeting moment I was almost convinced by this alternative version of the show as a bleak satire of the superhero genre. Something so surreal and twisted it could be a feature-length “Too Many Cooks.” But even a vivid imagination or desire to make this something different than it is won’t make it so.

oh man, this explains so much:

Iron Fist’s Scott Buck helms the series and wrote the two-hour premiere, and it is an incredible mess.

I probably would have done it Heroes-style with normal people discovering newfound powers and gradually built towards Attilan

Build a mystery, earn the odder parts of your mythology... it's like if L O S T had led with Jacob and the Man in the Black

I don't like Agents of SHIELD's style, but that's where that show had been going, right? It had already introduced the Terrigen Mist and gave characters new powers (and even referred to them as "Inhumans," I think).

The Final Inhumans Trailer Is Basically the Whole Pilot in Two Minutes



How much does it chap Jeph Loeb's ass that Discovery is actually getting good reviews and this thing will now stand alone as the year's giant franchise bomb?

Shut it down, Marvel: https://variety.com/2017/tv/news/abc-idol-inhuman-1202573827/

“Inhumans” has not been the only source of friction between ABC and Marvel. Earlier this year, the mandate came down from Disney for ABC to renew its other Marvel drama, “Agents of SHIELD,” despite the desire by some at the network to end the series after four seasons. Having aired on Tuesdays since its inception, “SHIELD” is shifting to Friday nights this season when “Inhumans” finishes its initial eight-episode run.

http://uproxx.com/sepinwall/marvel-inhumans-review-fast-cheap-terrible/

At that TCA panel, Loeb repeatedly scolded critics who took issue with one aspect of the show or another, insisting we were being unfair in judging an unfinished product. Amazingly, the version that will air on Friday night is worse than what the TCA got to see in the summer. With each passing minute, Inhumans feels slower, dumber, and emptier. Even the one thing the show does well at first — the CGI version of Lockjaw, so enthusiastic and helpful — gets screwed up before long. The show has no reason to exist except that Marvel wanted it to, by any means necessary.

And so it does.

Doing Agents of SHIELD numbers!

Marvel’s Inhumans made its small-screen debut on Friday night to 3.8 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating, shy of what ABC’s Last Man Standing/Dr. Ken sitcombo (5.4 mil/1.0) and Shark Tank (5.1 mil/1.2) averaged last season in the two-hour block.

That said, Inhumans (which TVLine readers gave a grade of “C-“) tied CBS’ MacGyver/Hawaii Five-0 average from 8 to 10 pm.

Also, though it’s nectarines and oranges, Inhumans did outperform both Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s May finale (2.1 mil/0.7) and Season 4 average (2.3 mil/0.7), as well as edged out Agent Carter‘s sophomore average (2.7 mil/0.8).


Marvel's bad at this!

I finished watching Luke Cage last night. It definitely was less compelling after that thing happened, especially since the new character had a tonal shift that didn’t help the series, but I still enjoyed it overall / will watch a second season.

Shades was the Wesley of this series.

I watched five minutes of Iron Fist and turned it off. I may continue if I’m desperate.

I still think it's pretty lame that everyone's calling Hela the MCU's first female villain. Nebula/Karen Gillan gets no respect. She's one of the best, most fun, most complex villains in these damn movies.

I found Nebula kind of flat, at least in the first one. Haven't seen Ragnarok yet. Nebula wasn't the big bad though so maybe that's what they're saying?

Release date isn't until Nov. 2, so I'm guessing it'll be another couple of weeks before we hear anything.
