You don't know the whole story until you've seen KYLE XY: THE COMPLETE THIRD AND FINAL SEASON.
Originally airing on ABC Family in 2009, the third season of Kyle XY begins with promise. Kyle (Matt Dallas) effortlessly goes into heroic mode when he has to rescue his girlfriend Amanda (Kristen Prout) from a covert organization. When he himself is endangered, he relies on his fellow lab-created "sister" Jessi XX (Jaimie Alexander) to come to his aid. But at a certain point, the series hits an ick factor when it hints that Kyle and Jessi may have feelings for each other. Never mind that they're not necessarily human. It still just feels wrong. Part sci-fi, but mostly a teen soap opera (think Gossip Girl and Beverly Hills, 90210, the remake), Kyle XY lacks some of the luster of its debut season. The characters are more clichéd this time around and are given rote lines that don't always ring true. To be fair, there is a lot going on here that would've been better served spread out over twice the number of episodes. But like many shows that are canceled without much warning, this final season of Kyle XY is a bit anemic. It's only 10 episodes long, and the abrupt ending leaves fans feeling a bit cheated about what happened and why (or, in some cases, why not). Though watching Kyle (and Jessi) thrive in their adoptive home is sweet, it doesn't drive the show. The best plot device features the duo scheming to stop the over-the-top experiments that basically produced them--and could produce duplicates of them. The series finale is unsatisfying. But the three-disc DVD set's saving grace is a bonus feature called "Kyle XY: Future Revealed." Just about 12 minutes long, the featurette does an admirable job of fleshing out the bellybuttonless hero's back story, as well as giving insight into what the future holds for the pragmatic teen. --Jae-Ha Kim

High-end science fiction, well plotted and edited. We watch a young man, totally ignorant of the mores, morals and culture suddenly surrounding him. He is strong enough - sane enough to withstand the barrage of new and strange sensations, interactions, and other stimuli that would probably destroy most of us. His interactions with the outside world and the people who inhabit it have strong elements of the surreal, while his ability to adapt gives thought to our own reactions to the new and different. Thought provoking, enticing, this is well written and enjoyable. Provides exposure to a constant string of philosophical concepts, events and dilemmas while not being preachy or confusing. Rather, this is always interesting and enjoyable to watch, even if it does make you actually think a bit. I think this is great material. I tend to get all paranoid when trying to figure out why the powers that be continually remove material such as this from our purview. Are we mindless idiots to be fed mindless media to keep us "in our place". I don't know, but the removal of programming such as this truly makes me wonder... At least we can buy the episodes that were produced. I would have really liked to have seen where the writers and producers were going with this.
ABC Family has been removed from my list of TV channels to watch due to the cancellation of this series. It was not fair not to end it after 3 seasons and taking a year off between screenings and expecting people to stop every thing to watch it. When everyone Tivo's their shows.
