Well, this one's somewhat better. There's more character development, and some interesting bits here and there. I like it that the big, intimidating guy who got Black Bolt put in his cell turned out to be more benevolent than we were led to expect. I liked the Hawai'an surfer guy telling Gorgon "I'll fight for your king in honor of mine." And it's an interesting choice to show Karnak having to cope with, effectively, a disability. Depriving Medusa of her power was obviously just a money-saving move, but Karnak's loss is more interesting because it's character-driven, the ultimate control freak having to cope with a loss of control for the first time in his adult life. I still see little reason to sympathize with these characters' desire to reclaim their elite privilege, but I suppose the idea is that their current situation, having lost everything and needing to depend on the aid of common people, would teach them a more egalitarian point of view. But if this is to be more than an 8-episode series (and at this point I'm still okay with it not being more), it would probably work better if they remained in exile on Earth indefinitely. The space agency lady still seems rather pointless to the story. I do wonder who the benefactor in the helicopter is and what he's all about. I think his name is Declan? The main thing that still stands out as underwhelming is the Inhuman costume design. Except for Crystal and Medusa, everyone's wearing black and gray. It's very bland, and Attilan is similarly colorless. Where are all the wild, colorful Kirbyesque designs? I've never been that huge a fan of Jack Kirby's work -- I think his art is kind of ugly and his ideas can be quite silly -- but sometimes I get a sense of just why so many people consider him so exceptional. I got that sense in the flashback scene where the Genetic Council leader was telling Black Bolt's parents about how he could destroy Attilan with his voice and so they could never hear their son speak again. There's something downright mythic about that, and quite poignant too. It's so much bigger, more grandiose a concept than just "Guy gets real strong and punches bad guys."
