Has anyone else started watching this show? I've been following up since it first aired. It seems great so far. May not be high of ratings but it covers some really down to earth issues. Was finally nice to have a TV Series set in X-Men Universe. Stephen and Amy were definitely two good choices are the parents (Reed & Caitlin strucker).
