So I’ve heard so much bad press about this series, but also some good press. Reviews are mixed, but of course there is always a story behind things. What I’ve heard is that this entire series was started with just 6 weeks lead time. Normally a TV series, especially one of this complexity should take several months to even a few years. Character design, set design and story design take time. I’ve heard that this series was rushed because IMAX needed a filler for the late summer.
I’m in the middle of watching Episode 1 as I write this and I’m liking it. The acting isn’t that bad so far and the opening scene was clearly made for IMAX but so far so good. The only odd thing I have to add at the moment is that when the two kids under go terragenisis they don’t go into a cocoon…. This series should run in parallel to ABC’s SHIELD and even makes reference to terragens release into the world.
I also love BlackBolt, a king who has to rule in silence or his very word could cause destruction. More to come after I watch Episode #2!
