Two summers ago, I was flipping through TV channels and stumbled upon this show with a very cute main character, so naturally I stopped to check it out. As I listened in, I realized that, for some reason they were discussing why he didn’t have a belly button. Usually I would go “wha…?” and just move on, but the acting was very good, and the story, however ludacris it might seem, hooked me within minutes. I only saw the last half of that episode, in the middle of season 1, but I immediately set my DVR to record to remainder of the season. I gobbled up the rest of season 1 and moved on to season 2 – and I looked forward to each Monday to see what would happen next.
Turns out, the name of the show was actually Kyle XY, and even though I’m not typically a sci-fi buff, I really love this show. (If you haven’t started watching yet, it’s not too late to dive in — Season 3 won’t premiere until January!) Season 2 will be released on DVD on December 30th, and I have already been devouring my press copy because it has been a long time since the show was on, and I’ve almost forgotten what happened. Not to mention I’m a total sucker for bonus features that come with DVDs — in this case the DVD includes an alternate ending, a feature on the Science of Kyle XY, Deleted Scenes, and Audio Commentaires featuring the cast, writers and producers.
Here is a sypnopsis of the story of Season 2, per the press release:
Kyle, our mysterious hero with seemingly superhuman powers, returns to the only family he knows, the Tragers. Knowing pieces of his complicated origin and the danger it brings, Kyle has no choice but to lead a double life: one as an average teenager navigating adolescence and another as an extraordinary human being trying to understand his purpose. As Kyle adjusts to this new life, Jessi, a mysterious girls with similar superhuman abilities, moves into the community and stirs thing up in the Trager household.
In Season 2, Kyle discovers how he was scientifically created by Adam Bailin and he starts to train his extraordinary abilities. Kyle’s link to Jessi XX are also developed and new relationships begin between Kyle and Amanda, Jessi and Declan, and Josh and Andy.
The DVD hits stores on December 30th, but you can pre-order your copy of Kyle XY: The Complete Second Season on Amazon for $29.99 – $10 off of the normal price!
