    Starting a thread for this new series which starts April 11 on HBO. The show was created by Joss Whedon. TVGuide has an early review of the first four episodes. The review seems very positive, with the caveat they hope the new showrunner, Philippa Goslett, can do good things developing what Whedon created.

    I thought it was pretty good -- it showed potential.

    I enjoyed it but if it’s going to captivate me it needs to be more than Victorian X Men.

    For us Brits, it's apparently coming to Sky Atlantic in May.

    I plan on checking it out then.

    Wait, their older leader is in a wheelchair?

    Not distancing themselves from X Men much.

    And played by the same actress who played Moira McTaggart in "Last Stand" to boot!

    The whole freaks in a mansion with an old mentor thing is basically its own genre by now, anyway. And X-men isn't the first example of it, either.
