I finally was able to finish my struggle watch of MARVEL’S THE INHUMANS TV show and I really would like to have those 10 hours of my life back. The show was dull, bland and aimless with no one thing or person truly standing out aside from an animated giant teleporting dog. Hopefully this failed experiment has taught the folks at Marvel’s TV division realizes that big cosmic fantasy properties are not the best use of their time and (obviously) limited resources. Also The Powers That Be over there have got to realize that Scott Buck is a guaranteed disaster machine as a showrunner and they never let him near another Marvel property ever again.
With all that being said, the thing that really stood out to me the most about this show is just how limited the aforementioned limited resources were. Not only did the show look cheap as hell, it also tried every trick in the book to clip coupons when it came to showing the fantastical powers and abilities of the titular characters on-screen.

After a long and rocky road that saw The Inhumans go from being a scheduled big screen tentpole film for Marvel Studios to being tossed aside for other characters like (the re-acquired from Sony) Spider-Man and The Black Panther, the property landed at ABC as a TV show. And after a couple of bad official photo releases and a less than overwhelming teaser we finally get the first full trailer for the show and it aint good. So join me as I point out what is wrong with The Inhumans show and the one thing that they seem to have gotten right.

Of all the Marvel Comics properties Disney could have put into production, The Guardians of the Galaxy had to have been the last one anybody thought would actually happen. As a fan of the GOTG I was admittedly a little geeked out and as dribs and drabs of pics and info get’s leaked my excitement is growing and growing.
