June 11, 2007: The Prophet Season 2, Episode 1

I hope everyone enjoyed tonight's premiere. What did you all think? Here are some of my thoughts. Overall I liked the episode. Not loved but liked. My biggest issue with this episode is the violence. The reason I fell in love with the show in the first place was for its nonviolent story lines. Now in this one episode, they murder several people, show gun violence and bombs, and blow up a building. From what I've seen of the upcoming episodes, there is more violence to come. This does not make me happy. I am having a bit of a hard time wrapping my brain around some of the backstory. Firstly, saying that Einstein was born seven weeks late seems like something that could be easily verified. I did try but could not find any proof - every source I found said his birth was pretty normal. Kyle being in a test tube/incubator is believable. I still don't know if he is a clone of Adam or not. They sort of left that question very open. The other nagging question that I have concerns Adam's original noble purpose of starting the experiments. I just don't buy that he started the experiments because he was tired of being alone. We've seen how easily Kyle connected with the Tragers. Why couldn't Adam connect with his foster family? When Adam first asks Kyle to get the glass and it keeps moving, why doesn't Kyle use his extraordinary reflexes to grab the glass, instead of letting Adam toy with him? I did not quite get how it is the water in the glass that Kyle is trying to attract but not the glass. One would think that he would end up attracting both the glass and the water as he learns how to use his powers. Josh's speech to his mom is classic. I just loved it and had a hard time keeping a straight face. At the end we see 781228, or Jessi XX. It is going to be interesting to see how they develop her character.
