Kyle XY was the first successful original show on ABC family. Featuring cute boys, which played right into their key demographic of teenage girls. Kyle woke up having no memory, like some big adorable baby. Not wanting the show to be some cutesy fucked up version of the Brady Bunch, the producers actually gave the show a complicated storyline, which made it much better, but also led to it's downfall. The series starts when Kyle wakes up naked in the woods outside of Seattle. He has no memory and doesn't know how to do anything. He's quickly put into a group home, as a John Doe, where he gains the attention and admiration of the local psychologist, Nicole Trager (Marguerite MacIntyre). Trager knows that Kyle will never survive in that environment and decides to foster him. Once at the Trager house, Kyle doesn't need to just learn the basics of survival, but also the social norms associated with being part of a family. The series starts out with Kyle as a clean slate, having to learn everything from eating to using the bathroom, and to me this was the worst part of the show. It did however give the stations key demographic exactly what it demanded and lead to these episodes being the networks highest rated to date. Wanting to show off Kyle's abilities and not wanting him to be some loveable moron, the writers shifted the focus to Kyle's extraordinary abilities and how he uses them to try and find out who he is and where he came from. That's the point where the show started to get interesting to me and of course the point where the ratings started to decline. Show some trendy teenage girls, a bunch of cute boys being adorable and you've got high ratings, but show those same boys as part of a global conspiracy, that makes you think, and those girls want nothing to do with it. Half way through the first season, Kyle XY went from a lame family show to a terrific science fiction drama. Matt Dallas stars as Kyle and he has a lot going for him. Dallas is good looking, athletic, and intelligent, unfortunately he's not a very good actor and many times seemed like some emotionless robot, who was reading lines from a cue card. Thankfully the family and friends surrounding him were far better actors than he was. The Trager family is a terrific mix of wit and emotion that is centered on Kyle, but doesn't focus solely on him. There is a terrific storyline featuring the daughter Lori's (April Matson) entrance into sexual activity with her boyfriend Declin (Chris Olivero), who may be the single most talented person on this cast. The brother Josh (Jean-Luc Bilodeau), gives much needed comic relief to the show, while teaching Kyle the things every teenaged boy needs to know. Kyle XY was a magically complex show that blended a great science fiction story with comedy and family drama, unfortunately it was on the wrong network. A show like this could have continued to grow and come out of nowhere to be a mix of the X-Files and 90210, that appealed to a huge audience, instead, it was geared toward teenage girls who just didn't want to think. The show was designed for a large audience on a network that has a very limited demographic. Ultimately the cute boys and the occasional comedy just wasn't enough to keep them interested and the show was canceled after 3 seasons. In my opinion this show was just starting to hit it's stride and should it have been on a network that appealed to a larger audience, it would probably still be on the air today.
I just finished watching the series on Netflix and I thought it was great all around. Great direction, storyline, characters etc just ABC screwed it up. Anything else that is ABC I just won't watch as I can't be sure they won't destroy it before it completes. Thanks for nothing!!!
No more box set purchases of ABC content either!!!
OK so I deleted all my ABC content from my watch list. Boycotting ABC!!!
I discovered Kyle XY on Netflix last week and our family has been addicted to it ever since. We have watched both season 1 and 2 within a matter of days! Season 3 hasn't been added to Netflix yet. We can't wait to watch it.
After reading other viewer's comments about the ending of the show, I would like to add my disappointment. If the show ended so abruptly it seems that those of us who follow the show have been cheated. I would like to challenge the people who made that decision to remember Star Trek. The NBC network decided to axe the program after 3 seasons but later Paramount Studios took it on and the rest is history. Star Trek is still one of the most popular, well-known sci-fi series ever made. People world-wide across the generations still watch the reruns. Maybe Kyle XY could also become a great success if someone had faith in it.
Kyle XY was very interesting and fun to watch for a variety of age ranges. The ending was incomplete and left the feeling that 3 seasons of loyalty to the show was wasted. All the viewers who engaged weekly in this show were cheated. It is like selling a book without printing the last chapter. This is a complete disrespect towards the viewers that all of Hollywood depends upon to be a success.
I think its stupid the show ended like it did they should of canceled the stupid shows that took its place Kyle xy was one of my favorite TV series EVERY MADE and too stop a show like this is unimaginable especially for stupid programs that don't need to be on and are boring as hell Kyle xy needs to be put back on the air and stupid shows taken off it was the one thing I looked forward too watching all the time and now that I've watched the 3 seasons 10 times I still think you guys need to bring it back more people like kyle xy then you realized and like I said you need to bring it back and for not continuing making it I'm giving it a low rating if it was on I would be giving it a perfect rating
The show was supposed to be only taking a mid season break, but they cancelled the filming of the second half. There was a full story line already in the works to make it continue, but some brilliant *loads of sarcasm* producers in Burbank thought that the world would be better off without the Tragers
ok hello sir or mam i would like for u to bring kyle xy back so please a lot of kids and people like this i think u should bring it back cause that thwe best show i have ever know so please as my birthday i want u to bring the show back

wow they canceled kyle xy but just let the secret life of the american teenager air for 5 seasons? That's screwed up. This show was one of the best i've ever watched and I can't stop thinking about what season 4 would be like. What happens to michael cassidy and kyle? What about the love triangle? Have been waiting for years and NOTHING has happened. Please bring back kyle xy I have all these questions and it's driving me crazy:( How can it be canceled due to low ratings?! Look at all the fan reviews!
I think the creators and cast should try to piece together another season or two for all of us fans and I am a very big fan of the show. This show was very inspiring and We would all love for a new season to come. This show has inspired me (kevin James) to learn more about science and that is one of my subjects I don't like lol and I am really counting on the creators to try to get the cast back on for another season. I really love this show and I hope that this message could reach the creator and cast. I really hope you all can put this show back up, I think it it might inspire someone new to try new and great things. If someone could get this message to creators and cast I would really appreciate it if they could put this show back up or at least give me a call-17608767130 I hope they can give it another chance
this show was and is the best show to be n television it should have never been inturupted. it should have been a 4th and possibly 5th season. it should of atlest had a ending insted of just leaving us with a clif hanger and with more questions that before and i think we have waited along time to get the answeres that we deserve. and it wold really mean the world to all the fans out their if they brought it back
Loved this show. Very upset that it ended the way it did. They need to bring it back. They have added all theses other shows that are so stupid. I loved watching it on Netflix. Spent 5 days watching all the episodes. Awkward, pretty little liars, and all the new shows they have some up with now are so lame. Kyle XY is a great show. BRING KYLE XY BACK PLEASE. ALL THESES NEW SHOWS ARE LAME.
I loved this show and to cut it off with an ending like that was selfish.. Kyle XY needs to b brought back like yesterday... This show has everything any other show has and more. It builds it has suspense, drama, education, etc. All its needs to be back.....
Kyle XY is at least one of the best shows ever made. It has a amazing plot, great actors, and a very good Setting. And you left us on a cliff-hanger, and that's why i want you to bring it back. However, im writing this letter hopping ABC will see it and reconsider bringing back Kyle XY. Over the years Kyle XY has gained hundred of thousands of viewers threw netflix. I did not know the show excised until i made a netflix account and seen how good of a show it was. It is my favorite show out there and its so sad to see it end like that. Please bring it back. And other viewers reading this, we can try to make a stand. If you type in on google Bring back Kyle XY petition, a petition will pop up, if you sign it, we will get one step closer to bringing back Kyle XY
pleaseee bring kyle back to tv i loved kyle xy and now i cant watch it please bring it back i watched all of the ep's and now i cant watch anything i watch it just to be disappointed please bring it back so i will not be broed
