New shows reviews and thoughts: The gifted: Watched some of this last night. Seems like it might be a good start. Characters are interesting and seem relate-able. When the government agents came and the father was part of their team, I stopped watching. Abusive government agents "protecting society" is a little "real" now a days. But I will try watching next week. I believe this was the pilot episode. The Orion: A Sci-fi comedy. The new captain finally gets his ship, needing a second in command, the government stick him with his ex-wife that cheated on him, as his first officer. I like the oddities of the crew and the interaction of different species and the common thread of living with the spouse of ex-spouse. I think The Orion is on it's 4th or fifth epsiode now. Someone told me Star Trek always calls officers "sir" no matter what sex. Is this true? Because the security officer is a woman and everyone is saying "yes sir."
