I’ve been intrigued by all the advertisements for the ABC Family show, “Kyle XY”. So instead of renting it, I just watched it from their website. It worked very well…no visible slowdown or catches or anything. I think maybe 2 commercials and a little pixelation issues but otherwise stupendous.
As for the show. Usually the first episodes of new series are seriously lacking. Not so with this one. It’s intelligent, humorous and weird. Weird in a good way though. Maybe it’s because I’m a father myself but I almost want to take him under my wing myself. It’s either the writing or the acting or the combination of the two that are what make it believable. It’s like watching my children growing up but in an accelerated manner.
So what does this mean for me? I guess I’m adding another series to my current list which includes Stargate SG-1, Charmed, 24, Star Trek: Voyager. Fortunately, I don’t have to rent these since it’s all online. Thank goodness for modern technology.
