  • kyle xy is about a boy that just arrives on earth and has no memory of how he got here and has no history. he is like a normal teenage boy except he doesn't have a bellybutton. he lives with a family that are nice but don't really know how to handle him.

    kyle xy is the newest addition to my list of favourite shows but is definiley at the top. it is just pure magic. kyle xy is a mixture of sci-fi, comedy, action, adventure and drama. it builds up suspence every week and who knows where the show is going next but wherever it goes, i'll be watching. kyle xy has to be one of the easiest shows to get into. as soon as i saw the advert i knew this was the show for me. i had only watched it for about ten minutes and immediately knew that i would be watching this every week. after you watch this for the first time you instantly gain complete knowledge on the show.
  • Kyle, the mystery boy from the woods, gets taken in by the Traeger (spelling?) family. The first season was pretty much about Kyle learning how to interact in society and the Traegers helping Kyle to understand. The second season Kyle learns who he is.

    I love this show!! Matt Dallas portrays Kyle perfectly I just fell in love with the character, the show, the story-line, and the supporting cast. Josh & Andi (spelling?) and Laurie & Decklan fan. The show is intriguing each and every episode. Can't wait for the new season in early 2009. Wish ABC Family would order a full season. I hope Kyle XY is on for years to come. I really hope that Kyle & Amanda are able to find happiness together and that Jesse leaves them (and Decklan) alone. Matt Dallas deserves an award for his role in this awesome show.
  • The kid with a thousand questions and million answers

    Admittedly I first started watching the show because it had supernatural components to it, but then I just got hooked. The actor playing Kyle does an amazing job portraying a semi confused genius who has an uplifting view towards life and other people.
    If you are big time cynic you are probably going to hate this show. Allot of shows rely on sex, gimics and special effects to get ratings, and IMO Kyle XY doesn't. Granted the show does have some special effects, very little actually, it relies on excellent character development with good storylines. Whether you consider them original or not is your prerogative.
    The thing I like most about Kyle XY is, that allot of shows have tonnes of violence, sex and a whole lot of negative views on the world, its nice to have tv series which shows the good in the world for a change, call me soft but i love this show.
  • Boring. Cheesy and cheap. Unoriginal. Horrible show.

    1.0
    I started wacth Kyle XY after reading some positive coments on this site (Tv.com).

    I didn't know nobody who wacth this and i be intrigue and decided to start wacth.

    The show has a couple misteries, the most important is WTH is Kyle?? But with the shows budget being so low, it become cheesy and boring.

    I wacth the first and a part of the 2nd seasons and decided to not go back. The show has a bad act for almost everyone on the cast with the exception of the lead (Matt Dallas). He's a midly good actor, but he looked retarded in the character of Kyle. It has his moments, but can't save the show alone. The scripts are awful, the way they play the histoty are wrong and the direction of the show let me dissapointed. The first season i almost have to hide myself during the show, so bad it was. And the 2nd season even with some improvement don't get much better.

    It's a teen show, the worst i ever wacth, and i not a fan of teen shows, i only have wacthed The OC and OTH (another so-so show that i give up after 2 season). I wacth because the sci-fi aspect of the show, and i regret because they don't know how to do this.

    I know the hardcore fans will disagre with this review, but seriously, you guys need to wacth better shows.
  • What is Kyle XY?

    9.0
    I've watched every episode and I'm still not quite sure what Kyle is. A clone? A cyborg? Or something else all together? There's a lot of mystery here, and even when some questions are answered, the mystery keeps growing. This is sort of a sci-fi version of the "OC" but for the most part, it works. I find the Jessi character a bit irritating (or maybe the actress just doesn't work in the role for me) but the rest of the cast/characters are engaging. The show focuses more on the relationships of the characters than it does the sci-fi elements, and that's what I like most about it.
  • Fantastic Show!!!

    9.5
    I absolutely love this show, it ranks up there with some of my all time favorites. The first season is a journey of discovery for Kyle and the viewer. You really get the sence of having a front seat as he makes new discovers. You see things that are everyday with a fresh pair of eyes. The viewer falls in love with Kyle. You just want to give him a big hug. The second season gets even better. The viewer takes a more back seat stance in this season. I will defiantly be buying the second season when it comes out on DVD. I can't wait for the third season so many questions left unanswered. Bring it out soon please!
  • The show clearly has made an attempt to tune in viewers from all ages!

    10
    The show has become one of the biggest hits in my books. It makes you want to build a time machine and travel a week forward for the next episode. The show borders on several genres such as sci-fi and drama and action etc. If you are wondering whether to buy the DVD or not, I must tell you that you will not get bored of this, it has an infinite amount of replayability. Though it is about a boy who appears almost out of nowhere in the middle of the forest, the answers are given to you, albeit, in pieces.

    No show has been this good, with a low budget and a small area to film it, it definitely delivers.
  • A twist between drama and science fiction that actually seems to be balanced fairly well

    9.8
    Kyle XY is a show about Kyle and his life with the Treager's a fairly typical family. However Kyle himself is anything but typical, he seems able to learn much faster then he should and through the series his scope of talent continues to raise, but even he has his limits, and tends to cross them from time to time, especially when someone hurts someone close to him. With relationships drama and a science fiction flair, the show has something in common with John Doe (a show that was totally underappricated and ended to early) but remembers to focus on the family and friend aspect as well, making Kyle seem like a more complete characer in some ways. Kyle XY finds a way to bring together aspects of romance and science fiction in a way that opens up endless possibilities from throughout the series, and while some aspects seem firiliar the ways in which they are handled tend to vary from most other dramas.
  • Kyle XY is a unique show exploring Kyle, how he sees the world, & where fate is taking him. Kyle is a cross between The Pretender & 7th heaven - but better!

    9.9
    I love the goodness of Kyle's character. He shows true humbleness, humility, & honor, not to mention what his mind & body can do! The writing intertwines between the characters lives, the bad guys that are after him, & Kyle exploring & learning how to use his amazing abilities. The characters are both well-defined, & unfolding. Kyle is a character that you can't help but root for. He's here to impact the world, & his innocense makes you want to protect him. Matt Dallas does a great job with such a complex character. Awesome show. I hope it never ends...
    So when does season 3 start?? can't wait!
  • i think this is good

    8.8
    High school can be stressful. Imagine how that stress is magnified for a foreign exchange student: you're surrounded by strangers and unfamiliar with local customs and language idiosyncrasies. Even the family you live with doesn't really know you, regardless of how happy they may be that you are there, and you know nothing of their family dynamic.

    Kyle XY (perfectly cast Matt Dallas) understands these difficulties. But he's not a foreign exchange student. In fact, no one in Kyle XY is quite sure who or what he is, not even Kyle himself. His memories begin the morning he wakes up nude in a forest. In the first episode, he was found and taken to a local juvenile detention center, where he didn't speak at all and couldn't recall where he was from. Social worker Nicole Trager (Marguerite MacIntyre) decided the first name assigned to him, "John Doe," was too morbid and renamed him. She was also so concerned with how he might fare in a detention center that she took him home to stay with her family.

    While the concept of the foreigner in a strange land is not new for television drama, Kyle is not your typical teen, possessing abilities that indicate his origins are otherworldly. He is a computer wiz and frighteningly quick on his feet. He's also a stranger in his own belly-buttonless body; when he cut himself when walking through a glass door, Kyle told Natalie, "My body is leaking." He didn't realize that the pain in his abdomen meant he needed to urinate, so he peed on himself. Neither did he recognize the emptiness he felt as hunger; it was only by watching another teen at the detention center that he figured out how to eat.

    Within days of arriving at the Trager household, Kyle was speaking English fairly fluently. Unfortunately, he absorbed inappropriate behavior as well as good, causing him to make frequent faux pas. During the pilot, he slipped up behind Natalie and wraps his arms around her, kissing her earlobe in the same way he saw her husband Stephen (Bruce Thomas) do. But while Natalie was extremely patient with his mistakes, the same cannot be said for the rest of her family, who resented his presence from the first moment they see him.

    The self-indulgent Trager children are not good role models for Kyle. Older teen Lori (April Matson) is a spoiled brat who sneaks out of the house to attend parties and sneaks boys in for overnight visits. Younger Josh (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) sneaks Playpen magazines into the house (his introduction to Kyle comes when Josh takes his porn to the bathroom for some self-gratification, where Kyle is hiding in the bathtub) and threw a fit when told to share his room with the new houseguest.

    The juxtaposition of the innocent Kyle with such tainted youth not only emphasizes his peculiar situation, but also indicates the show's attitude regarding "kids today": they're irresponsible, confrontational, and selfish. This was most evident when Kyle followed Lori to a party (she's gone despite the fact that her mother expressly forbade her). The drunk and horny teens spent equal time getting Kyle drunk and ridiculing him. The boy with whom Lori spent the previous night was feeling up another girl, inspiring Lori to get so drunk she couldn't remember the party the next day.

    Eventually, Kyle won over the Tragers. He rescued Lori from being arrested at the party and carried the passed-out girl home, fixes a computer which Stephen is working on, and returns to Josh the Playpen his mother has confiscated. This acceptance allows Kyle to stay in the Trager home, setting up a dynamic of the alien in the "typical" American home. Had the Trager family opted to return Kyle to Social Services to be placed elsewhere, his future would have been one of a typical foster child, bounced from one home to another. By staying with the Tragers, Kyle is afforded some stability and security.

    That Kyle knows no more about himself than viewers is promising. Too often in sci-fi, the "stranger" arrives with a mission or motivation. Kyle, however, is experiencing fear and uncertainty. He will likely face his past life at some point, indicated by the fact that he's currently being trailed by a shadowy man carrying a thick file. And yet, even with this figure in place, Kyle XY steers clear of the dark tone prevalent in so many sci-fi shows. Part comedy, part family drama, and part sci-fi mystery, Kyle XY strikes the right balance between all three genres. No matter who Kyle turns out to be, so far, his journey looks like fun.
  • The story is incredible, starting with a litle bit of fun at the begining, continuing with the drama of a lost boy who discovers the love of a family, and who strugles to find out his past.

    I've discovered Kyle while browsing ont abc's family home page looking for informations about another show. Then a tv station in Romania anounced that they will broadcast too the tv series. But I couldn't wait, an thanks good to the internet i'm actually viewing now season 2 of this incredible show who has managed to transform me intro a real fan.

    The story is incredible, starting with a litle bit of fun at the begining, continuing with the drama of a lost boy who discovers the love of a family, and who strugles to find out his past.

    But when he actually finds out, he decides that it's important to keep safe his family and leave so that he can learn about who he is. I've never felt so sad, almost crying at the end of season finale.

    Luckly, the writers have managed to make us happy,combining very well the emotions and the expectacions of the viewers , making the story exactly how viewers expect in season 2 when the story gets more interesting.

    This show has it all: a litle bit of comedy and fun, adventure, thriller, drama, love, the problems of a regular teenager, of a parent... and finaly the life of a family who gets a new son/ brother.

    Kyle XY is actually one of the best shows I've seen lately and I strongly recomend it.
  • Kyle XY follows a 16-year-old boy who wakes up in the middle of the forest. Kyle looks like a teenager, but otherwise appears to be a newborn. After being adopted by the Trager family, he discovers that he has extraordinary abilities.

    10
    I love the show Kyle Xy. This show deals with some real teenage issues. This show really brings families together. I really get excited about Monday nights because I know Kyle Xy is going to be on. As the character grows you start to like them even more at least for most of the characters. I like how Trager family accepted Kyle for who he was. I love how Kyle brought that family together. Kyle has some awesome powers. I look forward to when the DVD comes out. This show you can watch the episodes over and over again and never get tired of it and that is what would call a good show.
  • Kyle XY is a film about a boy that was found stranded in the woods. The strange thing is that he had no bellybutton.

    8.4
    Kyle XY is a film about a boy that was found stranded in the woods. The strange thing is that he had no bellybutton. After a lot of episodes of trying to find out where he came from he meets Adam Ballen who created him. It's hard to describe how so you need to watch the show yourself.

    After Adam Ballen gets shot, Kyle moves back in with his family, who knows nothing about Adam Ballen or that he never had mother or father. On the last episode, Kyle goes in the wood with clues that Adam Ballen and Tom Foss(Adam Ballen's security guard and Kyle's saviour) left for him. In a cabin he found Adam Ballen's body and he was still breathing. He contacts with him and finds out that a "so called friend" that was like Kyle, betrayed him. This friend was with him and she helped him contact with Adam. After Kyle found out this he ran after her, and she comitted suicide over a cliff. Kyle went back to his family. But the question is:

    Did Kyle tell them about his secret?
    If he did, how did they react?

    These questions can't be answered because the show stopped right after Kyle's same comitted suicide.

    Look, don't take this personally all you Kyle XY fans, but although it was a great show, it had a crappy ending. I bet a lot of people agree with me on that one.
  • a good show...

    9.1
    dont know much about this show but from what ive seen, kyle xy is some guy with super smarts who was created not made( hence no belly button ). A secret organization is out to get his knowledge and use it for their own purposes. this show is basically about him trying to keep his secret while at the same time go through every day life and learning new thngs everyday. since he was made, everything is new to him. he doesnt know how to treat someone he loves and he does very weird things indeed. he lives with a family that adopted him but dont knowmuch about him(until like after a few seasons).so thats pretty much the show
  • A pretty good show. I love the family dynamic in the second season and i loved the sci-fi in the first season. It has something for everyone.

    8.0
    It has a mixture of everything for everyone i think. Teen drama, sci-fi, family dynamic, and a bit of comedy. The best thing about this show is the dialogue script. The way the family interact with eachother is very nice and accurate. Its heartwarming to see a proper family on tv.
    The acting is also great from nearly all of the cast. The characters of Stephen, Nicole, Josh, Lori, Hilary, Declan are just brilliant! Kyle and Amanda can be annoying at times, they're such goody two-shoes lol. , I don't really like the character of Andy either, i don't think she's right for Josh. But i hope she survives her cancer coz Josh would be heartbroken if she didn't. The first ever episode was fantastic, Matt Dallas learning how to eat and talk. SO CUTE!

    For the third season i think perhaps someone should die and Kyle should go to a dark place and not be such a goody two shoes anymore. And Declan could help him recover from that. I love the Kyle/Declan friendship (Keclan haha). Its very nice that Kyle had a best friend that kept his secret.
  • A kid is found in the woods with no memory. Skip a year and however the heck long and he's going to prom with his girlfriend, he has super powers, and she gets kidnapped I don't know when season 3 comes out though but I wann know.

    Okay Kyle XY is my favorite show, I saw the last two episodes on tv and then bought the rest off itunes. Before this show my favorite was Scrubs, GO black whale AKA brownbear o all you heroes fans, I haven't seen it so don't rag on me for calling kyle my favorite. Josh is actually my favorite character, then Declan, then Jessi. Josh is a goofy pothead who thinks with his heart, his gut, and his dick. (So like me). Declan is a super jock who has a nicer to geeks side and is actually pretty awesome unlike the jocks at my school. California jocks are jerks, especially to geeks like me. Then, Jessi wants to be the best at everything, which is awesome, because that's what I want to be but i'm too lazy...
  • Started out interesting but now very annoying to watch!

    2.0
    When this first came out it was quite fun to watch, Kyle's high intelligence and cool physical abilities made it an interesting watch.

    But slowly as the series goes on you find that a few of the actors make watching Kyle XY unbearable. I find Lori, Jessi, Amanda and at times Declan very annoying. Maybe its the script or that they're just really bad actors, but for me personally these guys make Kyle XY a pain to watch.

    The only characters I like are Kyle and Josh, the rest are just mediocre.

    There's too much trying to keep each other happy going on in the series. All we need is Kyle to bust out some more cool moves and do more interesting things.

    For now, in my opinion this is one of worst shows on TV right now.
  • Kyle XY is the show that has something to offer

    10
    Kyle XY is a very interesting show which keeps up viewers with suspense. It's a story about a boy who figures out what really lies ahead for him in life while actually trying to have a normal life. He has the best family, great girlfriend, and not to mention the newcomer Jessie in his life. I think this is a show that should be around for many seasons and I will enjoy every episode that comes. Kyle XY is a show that the whole family will enjoy and come to love, because it's a show that's got the whole enchilada. I just can't wait for the new season and what's going to be in store for Kyle for the 3rd season. :)
  • Kyle is a different kind of human . . .

    10
    One of my favorite shows! The family interactions and building of relationships are very touching, and the unraveling of Kyle's mystery is exciting and suspenseful. The characters are very likable and easy to relate to. While some episodes may have a slightly cheesy tone, they always keep my attention and affect my emotions. Great for the entire family to watch, except for maybe very young children because of slight sexual innuendo and such. This show always manages to make me laugh, smile, and get excited all in one episode, no matter what. It definitely has a sort of sentimental feeling to it, which is something I really like.
  • A boy, A family , A destiney, awaits for him to be discoverd

    9.8
    Kyle xy is the story of a boy who awakes in the middle of the forest with no memory of who he is what hes doing or even how to move, later on he is transported to Nicole trager soon they grow fond of kyle and as time passes kyle is more than human he is super human follow the adventurers of kyle xy and the great mysteries that surround him. the first few episodes are great but as the seasons pass it becomes better and better a thirller that will keep you on the edge of your seat and rolling on the floor, Just who is kyle xy ?
  • Mystery, suspense, family drama, and enough light-hearted fun and character introspection to get you through from each point to the next in this outstanding series.

    10
    A teenage boy is discovered with no memory, no grasp of the world and no belly-button is discovered and then taken in by the family of the therapist assigned to the case. From here, the series takes you on a roller coaster ride of mystery, suspense, introspection and a look at our world from someone looking in from the outside. I will avoid spoiling any further details of the plot, but just to say that I believe this show is a model for the superhuman genre and in my opinion is what Smallville should have been, if it were not attempting to pander to a long comic and popular character history.

    Having found this show at the end of the first season, my wife and I recorded the season replay on ABC Family just before the season finale almost just on a whim, but found ourselves sucked in and have been great fans ever since, especially once the show entered its second season.
  • this show is great!

    10
    i love this show and the way it is, the story is moving a bit slower, but that critizism is not right, it is moving slower because of the romance and other story elements. i like all of the characters and building relationships, and nothing about this show i do not like. a a a a a a aa i love the way the story is structured, how more things are discovered, and lead to something better, and i don't think it will ever change again, always somethiong new. KYLE XY is a great show. a a a a a a
  • awesome show.

    10
    A pretty cool show its about a boy who was found the woods with know memory but hes really good at drawing and math each episoid is another clue to his secret thers on person who knows everything about him and kyle is starting to remember what happend in his pass.This is a really creative serie, it is well thought out and addictive. I can't wait to see them finish it and see how it all fits together.
    The one thing I don't like is now in every programme there is one person in the cast that sings and it's just so....been there....done that!
  • Best..show...ever

    10
    "Kyle XY" is my favorite show. Its serious and funny. Mostly serious which I would expect from a drama. It just puzzles me how this can be an ABC Family show. It just seems inapprioate for family viewers.But only at times. I love how the plot twists and turns every season.After season 2 I thought there was no way they could come back for another half season and make it just as interesting. But I was wrong and they did. My favorite characters are Kyle,Josh,and Declan. Im not much of a Jessi fan.Shes just 2 evil. Wow I guess theres NO so thing as 2 evil.... great show
  • This show rocks so hard!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is my favorite show ever!!!!!!!!!!!!

    10
    This show rocks so hard!! It is my absolute favorite show on T.V. Its a great mystery story about who Kyle really is. And now we have Amanda liking Kyle, Declan and Lori liking each other, Josh and Andy, and we also have Jessi who's confused and taking it worse then Kyle, and doing everything wrong. And Jessi's mom finally after all this time. And that dude who's working Jessi to hard for Latnok. This show is cleverly written and every episode is a great episode and it leaves us wanting more, which is really good at!! So all that said it is officially my favorite show on Television.
  • one of the best tv shows today

    10
    Love the show...all ages can watch it. Has something for everyone to enjoy...and it makes me laugh!!:) Well, I love this show! It has a little bit of everything in it. You'll laugh, cry, say awww, it will wow you. The actors are wonderful to watch and believable. The scenery is always changing. This is a show that most kids can watch, which is rare now. They are focusing on an experiment that could be possible. Not far off with all the genetic manipulation that does go on today. I hope this show stays around for along time. I will be a long time follower of it. Great job to all the cast and the guys & girls behind the scene awesome

    I think they all act well, and that they are well cast. If you haven't seen Kyle XY, i recommend it! It's different to other things on tv and it will make you laugh, especially with the guy who plays Josh!
    Let me know if this helps you or not!

  • Interesting enough, but seems a little unstable.

    7.0
    Having only watched the first three episodes, the show sure is exciting enough to continue, however the reason I stopped, is because I think some parts really screems b-series. Partially bad acting and bad directing made me skip the next episode and go watch something else.
    You get the "look at me I'm such a fast learner that everyone else is stunned over and over again by my skills" kind of feeling followed by totally unrealistic behaviour. It simply throws you off the hook.

    At first I thought that maybe kyle xy had a rough start, until I looked at the episode scores and saw that the score was about the same for the first episodes as the rest. Therefore I'm not sure if this one is worth continuing.

    If anyone else agrees with me about the first episodes, and think the next ones improved, please tell me.
  • good show...
