I'm done with episode 3 now. There's a lot of things that I like, even though the series is so very different from the original Winx Club. But there are also many things that I dislike.
Some first thoughts:
The writing is really off sometimes. There's so many weird scenes! And I can't even tell you how hard I cringed when they said the word "mansplain" twice in the first episode for no reason... what was that about?
Whitewashing!!! But we knew that already. I still have hope that they'll bring Flora back for season 2.
When Terra shares her insecurities, the others ignore it and don't try to lift her up.
Why is Stella such a bitch? I mean, yes, she's self-centered but she also always cares about her friends? Also, her outfits are sooo boring.
Stella and Sky?? Ugh.
Where is Brandon?
I love Beatrix, would've loved to see a trio of witches tho.
I like Bloom, but she also seems a little off, angry for no reason other than "I'm a fire fairy, that's why!"
And... WHERE ARE THE WINGS? You "evolved"? Ok, then why did you call the series Winx?
