The Gifted doesn't look bad, per se, but it does feel uninspired. It also feels more than a little stale, and particularly so in the wake of Noah Hawley's Legion, the other X-series arrived on FX earlier this year. That series is a full-blown mind trip, stuffed to the gills with amazing visuals, go-for-broke performances and a satisfyingly twisty narrative that revealed itself over the course of the show's first season.
