  • After a long wait, Kyle XY is finally back! And not just back, but better than ever!

    After a long wait, Kyle XY is finally back! And not just back, but better than ever! Lots of action and Kyle puts most of his skills to work to find Amanda, with a bit of help from some friends. I really enjoyed the return of this great show, and the episode was revealing and very amusing overall. A solid episode with a few surprises and some more questions. The end of the episode was one of those ends where you know something more is going on then what you saw, and these are the episodes that leave me wanting more, which is a good thing, as long as we get an answer eventually.moreless
  • Kyle XY returns to the same place, same time when superboy Kyle discovers Amanda's disappearance and a Latnock ring in her place. Kyle heads out on a rescue mission into the heart of the organisation that has the most interest in his future.moreless

    Kyle XY is finally back but with a stuttering bang that left me certainly wanting more, but also a little let down.

    My 2 main problems with this episode:

    1. Kyles abilities are suddenly way more advanced than season 2. He can practially fly through the air to look in Amanda's bedroom, has telekinesis, night vision and can freeze a steel reinforced door. The only thing that was consistent with the previous season was him jumping off the roof.

    2. Mark. I like this character and think he is a good pairing for Lori (who finally admits that she likes him even though she doesn't get his name out), why did they have him working with Latnock?

    That being said, a lot of good things came with this premiere, it definitely left me wanting more: What did Latnock do to Amanda?, what will Jessi do now that Sarah has abandoned her?, has Declan damaged his friendship with Lori for good?, will Lori hook up with Mark?, why is Mark working with Latnock and what service did he provide? (even though I don't like it), did Josh and Andy sleep together?, where was Foss and will he be back?.

    Plenty of questions to answer and I seriously hope that they can answer then in just 10 episodes.moreless
  • The Night After

    A lot can happen in the night after prom and it does.

    There isn't much I can say about the episode so I'll be brief. Basically this episode is a good start for this season and it just shows that things have changed and have gotten more complicated for everyone.

    We see Kyle in action on a ressue mission to save Amanda. Other than seeing him utilize his ablities more what was most interesting was seeing both him and Jessi work together. There is definantly a contrasting methodolgy for both of them, for Kyle it's more indirect and non violent resistance but Jessi it's direct and impulsive, I can emphisize with both methods they work equally well.

    What happens with the other characters is just as interesting. Declan and Lori still can't get together despite their feelings (not supprising), man when are these two going to stop torturing themselves. It was funny when he in a drunk state unintentionally kisses Lori's friend then both get busted by Lori.

    The interplay between Josh and Andy was as usual sweet those two believe it or not are my favorate couple in the show they just have the best chemistry, I could emphisize with that uncertainty of going to ummm let's just say the next level. There is that looming suspense wondering if they will or won't, we want them both to be comfortable but most of all do it for the right reassons at the right time.

    In the end were left with a lot of things; seeing Jessi having to be her own person whether she wants to or not when she finds herself alone again, Amanda is safe but something has been done to her is she going to have super powers like Kyle and Jessi, Finally Josh and Andy well go to the next level.moreless
  • **Warning-spoilers!** Kyle XY is back with more adventures!

    After what seems like an eternity off the air, Kyle XY is back! My whole family watched the marathon leading up to the season 3 opener and we were not disappointed. This episode began exactly where season 2 ended, with Amanda missing and Kyle looking for her. He gets kidnapped as well and ends up strapped to a table in a strange lab of sorts. But never fear, he uses his awesome gifts and escapes only to discover that Latnok has Amanda. Kyle teams up with Jessi and together they rescue Amanda while using their amazing gifts. There is another storyline concerning the after Prom party, and it was a bit uncomfortable having to explain to an 8 year old what was going on, but it was portrayed tastefully and so my curious youngster actually learned a good life lesson from me. In the end, Kyle stayed true to himself even in the face of danger and the temptation of joining Latnok. It was cool to see Hal Ozan, who played Jessi's neighbor Cassidy (and turned out to be Latnok as well) was from another ABC Family mini-series called Fallen. He played the fallen angel Azazel. I am looking forward to this season with great excitement!moreless
  • Kyle gets Amanda back!!!

    I thought this was a good way to open up the season. It gave you want you wanted to know all the whole time the show WASNT on and more. It started off with what we knew and from there gave us answers and many more questions, which IS what the show is. Its not tryin to decide what it is, its keeping itself with what gave the show its kick in the first place. I thought that they did good with the introduction of Latnok and many other char. I mean, yes there couldve been more fighting but i think they did fine seeing as how we KNOW Kyle doesnt like fighing nor is he the type of person to lose his cool in crazy situations, so it was all up to Jessi, the impulsive one, to do the striking and make rash decisions. All in all i thought this season opener was great, suspenseful, and i think that it was a key point for whats going to happen later on....and i hope this show goes on for a few more seasonsmoreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Lori: (After seeing Declan and Hillary kissing) Oh, my God. Oh, my God!
      Hillary: No. No, no. He's, he's drunk and I got wet.
      Lori: That's okay. Stop there.

    • Declan: (drunk) Damn the shampoo, it's mocking me!

    • Kyle: (voice-over) Amanda didn't remember what had happened at all. The most important thing was that we were home, and she was safe, and for her only happy memories remained.

    • Lori: Amanda? Has anyone seen Amanda Bloom? (weird guy dances in front of Lori) Has anyone seen Amanda Bloom? Sweet blond girl, probably the one assigning designated drivers.

    • Kyle: (voice-over) Though we like to believe we have control of our lives, in a single moment everything can change. My night of celebration had suddenly turned, leaving me afraid and confused. I was trapped, and the only thing on my mind was, 'Where is Amanda?'

    • Lori: Okay, so I was all up and through that after-prom and no one has seen Amanda… (she sees a worried Carol Bloom on the couch next to her parents) …dancing like that! (Carol's face relaxes) She and Kyle are just… (Stephen signals her to shut up) …just dancing! A respectable distance from each other, having an awesome time!
