This show irritated me, because I genuinely feel like it had a ton of potential (especially showing us some things from the one human agent's perspective). But, in the end, it still just felt like a knock-off of one of the countless other young people with powers shows that's come and gone.

Agent Turner wasn’t really that interesting for me, though he had potential, yeah.

Meh. At the end of the day this was mainly just something to enjoy on the side while waiting for the X-Men to come back to their former glory after the Disney/Fox deal.

Eh, I am not too bothered about looking too far into the future. What I am personally keen for is Legion season 2, which is dropping in April.

Yeah, am still enjoying it so far, and seems to be a decent improvement from the first season, although is not saying too much.

This is one of those shows that I put on as background filler a lot of the time. It's not bad. Just not really great either. At least to me, personally. And they often have to write a lot of PIS into the story for certain dramatic moments. Like the whole [SPOILER - highlight to read]: standoff with the Purifiers would have been more impactful if there wasn't a member of the Underground that could produce literally blinding flares of light to obscure people's vision/cause a distraction, but who instead chooses to attack with laser beams that hit nothing.

Reed having his powers remanifest has been the most interesting part for me as of late, and hope they go somewhere good with him once he gets a better handle of controlling his powers. Most of the characters at this point in the show have been fairly likable for me too surprisingly.

**** Rebecca though. The Mutant Uprising/Inner Circle made a mistake recruiting her.

The Purifiers are going to love her though lol. Great PR for them.

This show has actually been getting better in some regards IMO. It is actually managing to address topics relevant to the real world, but doing so in a relatively fair manner and showing the good and the ugly parts of both sides, which is something a lot of other shows fail to do.

Still don't care much for some of the personal drama stuff but, as a veteran of several CW DC shows, it doesn't bother me as much anymore.
