Did you see that ending to Kyle XY?

Okay, so I was watching the Series Finale of the ABC Family hit show Kyle XY, and there is one thing that I really noticed about it. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the series here is a synopsis….This guy wakes up in the woods outside of Seattle without a memory or a belly button (?). No, but seriously it is a somewhat entertaining teen sci-fi drama. The actors aren’t too bad on some occasions nor is the story, but back to the plot this guy, Kyle, has to learn the secrets that lie in his mysterious origin and protect those around him.

As the closing minutes approached, my sister and I were saying…. “Okay, it’s getting really good. How are they going to end it?”
But then nothing happened. It was just over. This has to be the driest ending to a series that I’ve seen. I have one word for you Kyle XY.

UNSATISFYING!!!!

I will say that they made one small revelation and Kyle’s little girl toy, Amanda, wants him back in the sack. (Not really this is a TV 14). Of course, the suspicion has been thrown around that the show was cancelled suddenly so the writers and crew didn’t have to toss together a decent ending. But whatever, that’s not really calling that an excuse. They should at least give a show like this enough time to compose a decent two-hour movie that can actually end on a decent note.

In case you’re interested there are two more Kyle XY novel/trade paperbacks that are coming to bookshelves near you in the future. I don’t believe they have titles, but I might read them just to get a grip on what’s left of this series.

QATFYG: Did you watch the ending of Kyle XY? Will you buy a book just because someone mentioned it online? Is ABC Family too sappy for your tastes?

  1. The ending we were given was indeed completely unsatisfying. That's why there is a campaign to try and save the show. We are writing letters to ABC Studios and other networks to try and get another station interested in this wonderful show. Please visit savekylexy.com for the addresses. There are even volunteers that will print and mail your letter for you. Thanks! Save the tub!

  2. Kyle XY is a prime example of the old adage, “only the good die young.” After three short seasons, we as fans are left begging for more… more of a show that was our bright spot on Monday nights.
    We Kyle XY fans are a loyal group. As a member of KyleXY dot net, I’m doing what I can to help resurrect this show. You can join in the fight as well. The more of us that speak out for Kyle XY, the easier it is for the networks to hear us!

  3. With the cancellation of KYLE XY by ABCF, fans have lost a battle but certainly not the war yet. People all over the world are involved in trying to Move the Tub to another network.
    The forum at WWW.KYLEXY.NET as well as WWW.SAVEKYLEXY.COM and WWW.SAVETHETUB.COM are great places where to find anything to help the cause.

  5. I was really upset with the ending to Kyle XY, i mean throw the TV out the window mad. ABCfamily really disrespected the show giving it an ending like that, they could had at least made some kind of deal with another network so that the show didn't have ta end, if they really cared about us viewers that's what they would had done. I'm not trying ta badmouth ABCfamily its just that they could have treated the show alot better than what they did. We all need ta band tagether and do whatever we can ta help save this wonderful show, mainly signing online petitions and sending ABCfamily and other networks letter about our campaign ta save the show.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
