Though Karnak’s big fight scene in Inhumans’ first episode is nothing to write home about, this take on Karnak and his powers are a solid example of the sort of good ideas that are sprinkled all the show—albeit hidden beneath a plethora of other problems. It’s obvious that Inhumans isn’t working with the funds that the project deserves, but hopefully the remaining episodes of the season make an effort to smartly work around their budgetary constraints in a way that makes the show worth watching.
