    A view from tree top height, with him on his side in an almost fetal position (discretely posed). And him saying something about having been "born" then and there.

    The girl next door has the prettiest eyes, just like Kyle. I hope the show makes it longer than a few episodes. We need some fun family shows right now.
    That's who he was! Arg I kept thinking I had seen him before.

    Yeah, I hope it lasts... I need a show that is fluffy and cute for a change.

    I found this show really intriguing. I want to know what happens next. Unfortunately I'll be gone this Friday, but hopefully I can catch a re-run somewhere? I agree with the person who said "it's summer and I don't want my brain to hurt".

    I think this is the perfect recipe for a summer show. I hope it lasts a little while.

    I'm glad there are other people who like this show. It's the perfect summer show! I enjoy the voice over commentary by "kyle". Especially concerning his views of the human world. The part about people growing younger, or that not everyone appreciates music, etc. Sometimes, I find voice overs annoying, but this one works and works well.

    I was prepared to hate this show, but was pleasantly surprised. I like the way they're taking time to let the story develop, letting us see the characters develop. I'll give it a few more watches at least.

    I feel a certain kinship with Kyle now, since I also require white noise in order to sleep. But I do have a belly button. I swear.

    How long before Kyle's roommate shows him ET and really flips him out? I am amazed the doctors are just listening to his heart etc. instead of doing a full body MRI at the least, plus blood tests. Come on...no belly button, you'd surely suspect some other interior differences. At least we know his brain looks like a human one, even if it doesn't act like one.

    I have a love hate relationship with this show. I really love the mystery of Kyle and his introduction to the world so to speak. I hate the kids in the family he lives with. They are such selfish brats. Why do shows advertised as "family" have to have so much junk in them. We used to go to the "family channel" so we wouldn't have to manuever around the mine field of TV as much with children in the house. In this last show they dealt with many puberty issues but with obvious "hard ons" pornography, and carelessly losing ones virginity.
    We ended up Tivoing the program and no longer allow minors in our home to watch it. We have an infant and our nieces were visiting for a couple weeks. Why does that stuff have to be part of the show. Certainly there are ways to show this teen-kid experienceing the trauma of puberty without resorting to this, isn't there?

    Well, I'd like to gently disagree. From all I read about high school today this may have been a depressingly accurate portrayal of the party scene and pressures that go on. Unless your nieces are homeschooled something like this is probably going on in their school.
    More specifically....They are showing Kyle getting used to his new body...and if you poll teenaged boys the issue of the inappropriately public erection is apparently a major major problem for them. And most teenaged boys have a copy of Playboy somewhere. Of course teenaged girls may not be aware of all that until they grow up and talk to their boyfriends about their youth, and maybe you want to shelter them, but I don't think that touch of reality will be bad for them--maybe make them more sympathetic to their male peers. Doubt the infant had a clue what was happening. Now casually losing your virginity--I think the show was a very strong message NOT to casually lose your virginity--look how upset she was afterwards. Yes, the boy may be having second thoughts about being such a jerk, but certainly the message was, wait at least until you really really know someone. Probably got that message across better than you can, and made the peer pressure obvious as well--good talking points for adults who watch WITH the kids, which is what I'd always do.
    Re Kyle and having to learn to hide his "natural" bodily function, especially from the other sex... if Kyle was in a girl's body she'd be being taught to hide the natural bodily function of menstruation, especially from the other sex. Think of it that way. Or maybe you'd also think that was TMI? JMHO, obviously people disagree on whether it's better to discuss sexual issues with kids or not.

    I think Kyle XY is brilliant. It's a great and entertaining show. I think that Matt Dallas is super HOT!!! He's 24?
