Fall 2017 Premieres: Marvel's Inhumans on ABC

My review on Marvel's Inhumans might not be fair, I watched the premiere sitting in an IMAX theater so when Gorgon stomped his foot on the ground the entire room shook. That was the best possible way to watch this 1 1/2 hour premiere, that said, this show is beautiful, exciting and has interesting characters. Marvel's Inhumans is a new show on ABC that is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Taking place both on Earth's Moon and on the island of O'ahu in Hawai'i, this show was perfect for me. Having lived on O'ahu for many years and being very interested in living on the moon, this show has two of the best locales for a show.

The characters were intriguing and definitely kept my interest. I am not a big comic book person but I am a big movie/tv superhero person. This meant that these characters are all new to me but I found them very interesting.

I think one of the biggest challenges for me is the two episode premiere did a great job establishing the characters and the crisis but it leaves you kind of wondering what week to week episodes are going to be like and if they are really going to have enough content to keep you engaged all season long (much less for multiple seasons). Also, the entire series feels very removed from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the only link to everything else is the admission that people on O'ahu have heard of Inhumans (which we saw happen on ABC's Agents of SHIELD in the last several seasons).

I am hoping the long story proves to be as intriguing as the premiere and that they can find ways to loop into the greater Marvel Universe even if it's just hints. They aren't on an island...even though they are kind of are.

I would encourage you to check out Marvelโ€™s Inhumans. Itโ€™s an 8 episode series starting September 29 on ABC.
