I think I can "share" one potential reason....

...of course, Kyle seems to be doing well, so it looks to be able to hold its own a bit better. However, what's a good rating on cable is only so-so on the big nets.

one thing's for certain, if they plan to air all this season on ABC, they'll have to rethink their scheduling. Kyle XY season 2 is 23 episodes long, not the 10 it was last year.

If they still plan to do a split season on ABC family and break until January after the first 13, ABC will have to find a way to accommodate the show when it returns for 10 more episodes.

Something tells me ABC will have gaps to fill.

thefutoncritic.com is showing Kyle XY Season 2 as only 13 episodes. There are no indications there that there will be an additional 10 episodes.

but how often do they fill gaps in prime season with good programming, and that stays on the air longer than a week?

and that's why Fredfa doesn't link to the FC very often.

Just watch the season opener and I wasn't impressed. Why did they have to give Kyle a superpower? Isn't it enough he's superintelligent, a great athlete, etc, etc? Now they give him telekinesis as well? Meh.

Otherwise it was rather predictable. Hopefully later episodes will be better.

I too watched the season opener a few hours ago and I enjoyed it thoroughly. This is my first full episode (previous viewing was a few mins where Kyle had an embarassing moment regarding anatomy but I didn't see enough to know exactly what 'it' was) so there are a few loose ends but the re cap at the beginning helped a bit. I know its difficult to join a show cold turkey so anybody know if family channel is doing reruns of last season anytime?

All I want for Christmas is my two front seats

So, Kyle was in the tank for something like 16 years???

Will be interesting to see how they incorporate "XX" into the plot.

From a PQ standpoint, the colors seemed oversaturated to me...anyone else notice orange faces? I know it's not my set...the commericals looked fine. Was watching via D* MPEG4 LIL.

Don't forget, he can already detect lightning and jump off the roof of a 2+ story house with ease...

I was fine OTA here.
Well, other than being really dark, colors were fine.
Must be something DirecTV is doing.

And sink a basketball from half court, repeatedly.
Didn't he walk through a sliding glass door with little effort and nary a scratch?

HE HAS SPECIAL POWERS!!

Haha j/k, but seriously I thought the episode was pretty good (I had already watched the ABC family showing but refrained from talking about it here). I didn't notice any particular color imperfections.

I thought it was great that so many questions were answered, but parts of it just seemed to add more questions...which is probably a good thing. I was trying to hold out for the HD showing on friday, but I'm not sure I'm going to make it.

I didn't! This is just like BSG....watch it in SD to see what happens....then the rerun in HD.

Well, then don't even hint at what comes next please.

As to "special powers", I think it's a long "leap" from being able to jump 2-stories or walk through a plate-glass window unharmed to having telekenetic powers. But what's done is done I suppose. It would have been nice if they developed his powers more slowly, but I suppose with only a 10-episode season they have to start things up relatively quickly.

Amazing that they could answer just about every key question between the Season 1 finale and Season 2 premier - yet the show maintains its "must see" status by coming up with an equally compelling direction moving forward.

Yeah that was really gutsy or incredibly stupid. They pretty much solved his entire origin story, his purpose and his power in one episode.

Luckily I was never that excited by the conspiracy and origin stuff I just liked seeing him interact with the rest of the family and his school with quirky consequences. As long as they keep that dynamic I think it will work.

I'm not that thrilled about XX however.

Of course now he must, after discovering who XX is (a genetic double of himself, albeit female), bond with her, even while she's trying to kill him... I really hope it's not that predictable.

Saw the very beginning of last night's show. Was quite reminiscent of the one episode of Smallville when the woman from Krypton suddenly showed up (last season?). PQ was terrible, BTW.

XX is going to need some serious thearpy. And some clothes. Well, therapy anyway.

It was on here in Boston at 1:06 AM. Our TiVo caught the time change and recorded it for us.

Yeah, I didn't know enough to look for it later. I suppose that's why TiVo is good.

It was broadcast 4:3 gray pillar-boxed -- probably not HD. (My TiVo setting for letter-box and pillar-box is black, so I know that the pillar-boxes came from the broadcast.) Small consolation I suppose.

What was up with the PQ on episode 2. It definitely didn't look as clear as episode one did. Eh, oh well. The quality didn't bother me so much. I liked the episode.

They seem to be toying with the XX character, kind of just changing things up as they go along. It's kept my interest though. I'm wondering when they will finally try to give Kyle some kind of love interest to show how he deals with. Here's looking to next episode.
