A Defence of Marvel’s Inhumans

Following the UK Release of Marvel’s Inhumans on the 25th October, the show already has a lot of negativity surrounding it and has a low rating of 5.3/10 on IMDb and a shocking 8% on Rotten Tomatoes. However, I am here to restore a little faith for you Marvel fans, or Marvel newbies.

The series follows the life of ‘inhumans’ and the Royal family who live on the moon, hidden away from the people of Earth and then the consequences that follow after a divide between members of the Royal family unfolds.

The show has received poor ratings: 5.3/10 on IMDb and 8% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Just like every other MCU creation it delivers on humour, stunning visuals and a story-line that invites you in and grabs your attention from the word go. My personal favourite is Lockjaw, the giant bulldog who acts as the Royal’s loyal protector.

Another aspect of Inhumans that does not disappoint is Iwan Rheon’s portrayal of Maximus, the King’s brother. Iwan as an actor has always delivered an explosive performance – we love and root for him as Simon in Misfits, we hate him in Game of Thrones and aren’t too fond of him either in Riviera – but one thing is for sure, he is a brilliant actor and not unlike his other roles he delivers a performance that packs a punch and gives me hope for the rest of the series.

So, there may be low ratings and the word stumble being thrown around in regards to Marvel’s new series, and part way through the first episode I thought maybe I wasn’t going to be a fan; but if we put the one ‘cheesy’ scene aside, it was definitely not a waste of my time. In fact, I cannot wait to watch the next episode and I guess there’s no time like the present.
