Why we’re watching: As I stated in my Favourite SDCC Trailers article: “Fox hadn’t been doing too well with their X-Men films until we got Deadpool and Logan. They hit it out of the park with Legion on the TV side of things as well. Fox seems to be on an upward swing with this franchise and The Gifted seems to be continuing that trend. It looks a whole lot better than the other upcoming Marvel TV series on Freeform, Cloak and Dagger, at the very least. For all I know the series could turn out to be pretty bad, but the trailer convinced me to give it a chance.”
