Wish they had adjusted her skin tone a bit, but everything else is there, so it's all good.
Having a pink woman run around might lose a bit of believability in this too.

well this is possibly the same character from dofp ... so
*wiggly hand motion* ~
all we can hope for is the pink is a 'secondary mutation' lol ... personally, I'm more interested in somebody just handing her a big gold arm guard and some belts.
a quiver full of spikes would be nice too but I think the belts might be pushing it already lol
>_> and maybe the Tallus could just get a passing joke line like.
Blink opens her nightstand and sees it phase into existence - only for her to shut the drawer and say something like "oh not that again."
XD maybe she'll be the breakout character on the series and get a spin off where Fox uses her to fix the X-timeline

Uses the actresses actual skin does save on makeup (expense & time) and adds to the variety of ethnicities represented by making her remain Korean. So it's all good.
I do wonder though if she'll learn to use her power better via the crystals, or if that'll be something they don't both with due to possible budgetary reasons (or having to explain where they even come from)?

The first episode wasn't bad, but I felt my attention drifting a few times. The plot felt... I dunno. It didn't feel "new". New mutants discovering their powers, getting hunted, finding a sanctuary of sorts... It's basically the same plot we've seen time and again.
Especially when we have the main male child character tearing things apart with his mind when he loses control. That scene felt a little too much Legion for me. In fact... the plot was very Legion, but without the insanity hook that made Legion so compelling.
Like I said, it wasn't bad. I'm not really criticizing it all that much here. I just hope that with all our characters introduced now we can tackle some more interesting plot strings.

Glad to hear that it's getting good reviews, too. I'd hate to see it get canned before it really gets going.
yeah but its still on fox. dont get too comfy so in case it happens you wont be disappointed (yes, i despise fox)

I gotta say, not being familiar with any of the characters in that last scene with the researchers, I was entirely lost. I had no idea what any of it meant and it failed to be any kind of stinger just a "wtf did I just watch" scene since no one was actually introduced and nothing was said about what they were doing.
Other than that scene though, it was a much better episode than the first one. They actually feel like real characters now rather than "Hey. Remember this person from the comic book? If you don't... I guess this doesn't mean anything to you."

I just realised that "John" is Thunderbird. I wonder if they'll kill him off just like his comic counterpart.
Then do we get Warpath or does that have to wait for Deadpool 3 or the inevitable Cable solo-movie?

I love continuity shenanigans in a universe where time travel and alternate realities are a given established thing that happens XD
So much fun!
but yeah, seeing the dye coming out was kinda the point I sat up and said.. "okay show you're impressing me."

See, I saw the dye coming out and thought, "oh damn, when's the last time Polaris washed her hair?!?"
Also, I feel better if I keep Legion and Gifted continuities the hell away from X-Film continuities.
Logan was great as a one-off, and I enjoyed the hell out of Deadpool, but the rest... well, I'd like to pretend that they don't even exist.

There's ways to keep dye in when washing, but it requires stuff that they wouldn't have let her have in prison.

I don't really spend a lot of time thinking about fictional character's personal hygiene regiments lol. however, considering she's basically a fugitive on the run and has been locked up for most of the series' runtime so far I'm thinking at best this was her first shower in a couple days, assuming they didn't let her have one at vampire dad's work.
