Talk about an awesome suprise!

Ok Ok sometimes I hate to admit that I'm not overly excited about doing a review. When I got the press release for Kyle XY: The Complete Second Season I wanted to do the review as I'm always game for a series as sometimes regardless of what I think going in series are one of my favorite video reviews to do as there is the occasion when your really surprised and they are great company for the many hours a night I stay up doing reviews. The only issue is sometimes a series is so good that it actually distracts me to the point that I'd rather watch than work as unlike watching a season on TV where your forced to wait each week to see the next season but if its on DVD you can stay up all night and watch it all the way through! It's a great treat and with the really great ones its also a great way to loose sleep. heh.

Back to Kyle XY, I honestly was not so sure about doing this review as I knew absolutely nothing about the series previous to the review and the picture on the front of the DVD showed two attractive young adults raising up their shirts so I was convinced it would be one of those cheesy teen dramas where the kids are all way too attractive (and older than they should be). Well Kyle XY was one of those shows that surprised me as though yes the guy who plays Kyle is really attractive but the reason they are holding their shirts up, why on earth I didn't notice this sooner is beyond me, is the fact that they do not have belly buttons.

Kyle XY is a scifi teen drama but its appeal is much farther reaching than just the teen drama. Its actually well written, and though there is some sexual comments I would consider it safe for teens unless you live in a super conservative household. Its smart, its engaging, and Kyle's story as it unfolds leaves you wanting to watch the series one episode after another without stopping.

Without giving away the plot Kyle has just appeared in the Trager's household. He was found wandering dazed confused and totally naked in the woods with no memories of who he is. Nicole Trager his therapist brings him home to help socialize him and in hopes that his memories come back but when Kyle starts to realize who he is that's when the story really begins. Kyle is no ordinary teenager, other than the fact that he has no belly button, he also has extraordinary powers mentally and physically. He learns new languages like they are very easy he can do math problems that would take a normal person weeks in seconds and he seems to be able to do things that is nearly impossible. The story follows him and his discovery of who he is and where he has come from. The new girl Jessie seems to have some part in the story too but she is just a bit too erratic and aggressive to fit in.

Its a great series and I highly recommend it especially if you love scfi shows.

LOST hands down is my favorite. My daughter and I watch Kyle XY together though. It is the "kids Lost" as I call it. The mysteries are more predictable but it is good for kids - a lot of moral lessons planted througout the show. NOT for young kids - deals with issues on sex, drugs, etc.

I am a die hard Buffy the Vampire Slayer series fan. I guess that's more supernatural than scifi. I also loved Star Trek: The Next Generation in high school.

So many great Sci Fi shows, but I think Battlestar Galactica is my favorite. More than just a science fiction show, it's an excellent drama with first rate actors. Thank you for the great give-away.
