Kyle XY

Kyle XY is one of the best television series that I have seen of late. Till date I have caught the first two seasons of the series, and I must say that I am still quite hooked to it. Here, in India, the series has had a slightly deferred run on the StarWorld channel. I wasn't able to catch it from the very beginning, rather I joined towards the end of Season One. But I found the premise so delightful that I got hold of the DVD and saw the entire first season just as the Season Two unfolded week after week on my television screen. The series is Drama-Mystery-SciFi - all rolled into one. And the heart of the series is intelligently constituted by identity pangs that has such an endearing pull for a viewer like me!
Here is the storyline for the uninitiated: The Trager family (settled in Seattle) takes in an amnesiac teen, as Nicole Trager (the doting Mom, who also happens to be a psychological counsellor) brings the boy home to let him reconnect with his past, after he is found roaming about naked - completely clueless about who he is! Kyle, as the boy is soon named, has no memory and no belly-button either! It is eventually learnt that Kyle has mysterious powers and psychic abilities, and he is the result of a secret human cloning experiment conducted years earlier. The family helps teach Kyle human behaviours such as anger, joy and love, and guards him against forces who seek to use Kyle for their own nefarious purposes.
The series stars Matt Dallas as Kyle, Marguerite MacIntyre as Nicole Trager, Bruce Thomas as Stephen Trager, April Matson as Lori Trager and Jean-Luc Bilodeau as Josh Trager. Others in the cast include Chris Olivero as Declan, Kirsten Prout as Amanda, Nicholas Lea as Tom Foss, Jaimie Alexander as Jessi, Magda Apanowicz as Andy, and J. Eddie Peck as Adam Baylin.
