"Sean Teale as Marcos Diaz / Eclipse: A rebellious mutant who can absorb and manipulate photons."

So, a Latino with light manipulation. 

Sunspot?

Could be.  Could be.  But why not just call him Sunspot?

I'm betting more than anything he's just created for the show. The character doesn't even sound really like Roberto.

That said...I'm probably going to skip this unless it really REALLY blows the socks off of every one in the world.

two eps in...so far so good...some nice easter eggs.  again, not ground breaking TV but solid entertainment.  it feels remotely connected to Legion though no connection has been official made.

anyone else?

I simply have been unable to make this part of my routine at all. Sounds like this has been doing well; is anyone else watching it to give me opinions?

I watched the first episode and was pleased, but still have not gotten around to watching more yet. Summer tv schedule is a beast for me. Rarely have anytime to check out the shows I already have.
 Cheesy
Will get back to it soon though.

Just hope it doesn't get too far into that "Bill Bixby Hulk" feeling where every week we are just going through the same motions and emotions. It COULD do that with the way it is set-up, but I am hoping they avoid that trap.
