I wanted to like it, fantasy and sci-fi is my fav genre. There are aspects I liked but overall I have a feeling it's going to be too aimed at a teen audience for my viewing pleasure. Not that that is a dealbreaker all of the time for me but often it is. It gave me the same vibe as The Shannara Chronicles and Shadowhunters, both of which on paper I'm all in but on screen seemed aimed at a younger-than-me demographic and I just wasn't able to connect with the show overall. I'll check out episode 2 but I doubt I'm in for the long haul.
Yet shows like The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl etc I can watch easily and enjoy - I think because they know they're candyfloss tv and are fun. I seem to find it hard to connect when the show is 'serious' but aimed at a younger demo. Weird, huh? At this point I'm rambling so...move along!
