As fans of the X-men franchise, we should know by now that when it comes to continuity, Fox doesn’t really care. From Xmen Days of Future Past to Deadpool to Logan, as long as they are making good movies they are happy.
We have also seen recently that they have been expanding the universe into the Television world, first with Legion and now with The Gifted.
What makes The Gifted distinctly part of the X-men series while also being definitively seperate and different from Legion is what I think makes it a great show and worthy addition to the franchise.
The Gifted blends family drama with a political feel. Its focus is on being a family, but it also looks at the world from the perspective of those who have been abandoned by the government and being hunted for being different.
If you’re a fan of comic book shows and the X-men, I highly recommend giving this show a watch.
