    When I read a review that the show was sort of a mixture of Starman and John Doe I had see for myself last night. I was pleasantly rewarded. Kyle XY is on the ABC Family channel and there are 10 episodes for this first season.

    The show is also being repurposed, at least for the first four episodes, on the ABC network Fridays at 9:00 p.m. Since those showings will be in HD I plan on rewatching the pilot again.

    Thx for the headsup. I didn't know ABC was reairing it in HD. The first episode was pretty interesting, so I'll be rewatching.

    Too early to tell, but saw it tonight and intrigued enought to 'Season Pass' and see. Husband commented, at his intelligence level and aquistion speed, it could be a difficult task for the writers to keep his naivete fresh.

    I also caught the show last night on ABC. I enjoyed the pilot. I will try to catch future episodes.

    That was my exact thought also.

    We just saw the pilot episode, and were impressed. It's not great, and probably won't last, but it is good enough for summer stuff.

    I thought it was just a little too much like "John Doe" if they wanted to do that show, they should've brought back Dominic and crew and made Season 2.
    With that being said, I did in fact enjoy the show, I'll tune it for more.

    I caught the HDTV repeat on ABC this weekend while flipping channels, it was okay for a show that on in the background, but it just got minimal interest from me, and I am not sure if I'll go out of my way to catch it again.

    This show is great! As a John Doe fan, this is a great new series to hook on to after just re-watching all the episodes of John Doe again on SCIFI. If you liked John Doe then this show might be a good way to satisfy your need for that kind of a show, although it's more inline with a Veronica Mars or Smallville "CW" type of teen drama, course that be one of the reasons its on ABC Family.

    I hope it gets picked up for a second season, 10 episodes isn't going to be enough!

    Smallville perhaps, but I suspect most Veronica Mars viewers will be unsatisfied by Kyle XY.

    seems interesting enough.

    odd thing to me is that it looks and sounds like every's voices are dubbed.

    I am enjoying this show. It is kind of a cross between the movie Starman and the OC.

    tonight ep "looked" interesting.
    i say looked because philly abc messed up the sound the entire ep.
    only sound was the music and some backround sound.
    i was waatching upstairs on the small tv listening through tv speakers.

    as if the center channels was off.

    Great News!!!

    ABC Family has picked KYLE XY up for a 2nd season, for at least 13 episodes.

    Apparently it'll air later this year. Only 3 more episodes left for season one.

    Good news.
    I do hope they get rid of that Stereotype Bitchy girl. She serves no purpose at all.
