Kyle XY

Kyle XY TV SeriesAn American drama television series Kyle XY is about the sixteen-years old boy Kyle who wakes up in a forest on the edge of Seattle totally naked and without any memories of an earlier life. He is totally missing standard human behaviors such as anger, joy and love. He is like a newborn baby in his lack of knowledge of human social life. He even doesn't know the simplest things, like how to eat or drink, and cannot communicate with others. When Kyle walks naked into a nearby town, he is picked up by the police. As they cannot find his records, he is taken to a children's' home where it is discovered he doesn't have a navel. At a nearby youth detention center, authorities discover that the kid is a savant who's missing instinctive human behavior and stranger still, he's missing the one thing every mammal has “a belly button”. One of the center's psychologists, Nicole Trager, realizes that Kyle needs special attention and she got interested with it. She realizes the kid doesn't belong at the home and brings him to her home while the police look for his family. The series follows Kyle and the Trager family as Kyle develops socially and searches for answers to his past.

The Trager family who adopted Kyle is a typical one, and neither dad Stephen (Thomas), sister Lori (Matson) nor son Josh (Jean-Luc Bilodeau) is at all happy when mom Nicole (MacIntyre) brings home one of her "head cases." She's a social worker and believes Kyle needs a home environment to bring him out of his shell. Soon the family starts to see that Kyle has some unique abilities and an uncanny way of completing two hour IQ tests in 5 minutes with perfect scores. He encounters everyday activities such as video games, drawing and music with a wide-eyed wonder and a thirst for more knowledge. He also starts to grow fond of the Trager family and even rescues Lori from a high school party that gets dangerously out of hand. By the end of the episode, the family has accepted the strange young man, and he's learned to speak.

Kyle learns bits and pieces that may lead him to discover his identity, and he also learns life lessons as he finds a place in the family. However, when he learns that his search to discover who he is may put the Trager family in danger, he pushes his abilities to the limit, in "Overheard", in an effort to protect them. The season culminates in the finale "Endgame", in which Kyle finds answers and an ally. Unfortunately, it's at the cost of leaving behind everyone's he's come to love.
