I guess the TV series is okay for a Star Wars spin-off, but what's with the charaters' faces?
Personally, I think Kigdom season 2 fails to follow in its previous season's footsteps. Why? In the first season, the story felt pretty fresh (by widening the scope of zombie-cinema), but as it moved onto the nest season, it felt as if the story was slowly becoming entagled in itself. For example, the rampaging zombies evidently develps new abilities and weaknesses formerly unknown (I guess in the third season, they may even learn to fly, to pose a bigger threat to our heroes). And finally, the story forms a continuous loop which makes the series feel like it's never going to conclude (loop after loop). In the end, with all the twists foreseen and the ending pretty obvious, Kingdom season 2 is just a forgettable joyride ridden for a momentary thrill.
But, here's the thing: I'm just pointing out the main problem in every TV series. Kingdom exactly follows this customary routine that every other series eventually ends up following as well.
I never meant for the review of Kingdom season 2 to be so negative (it's not bad at all, it's still impressive and has that same excitement it had in season 1). It just happened that I suddenly remembered this certain issue while writing this review, therefore resulting in this long, rather dismissive article. So, Kingdom fans, don't take my review harshly. Just presenting you all with something to think about.
Not bad, but I think the TV series is starting to fall apart, literally. The problem here is that it relies too much on Superman, his villains, his allies, etc. As a comics fan, I keep on noticing how similar Supergirl is to Superman (it's not even an exaggeration to say that she 'is' Superman himself). I would like to see her own unique story, if you know what I mean.
Castlevania continues to keep up with my expectations. Some questions here and there, but overall, the TV series is pretty solid and exciting. But all that blood is starting to make me feel a little nauseous. If you are okay with gory scenes though, then I guess you won't have much trouble with the show.
For a TV series based on a game, Castlevania is pretty impressive. The setting (the Dark Age inspired milieu is really interesting) and the characters (from the likes of Dracula to Trevor Belomont) are captivating. Even for people who are totally oblivious to the original game like me, Castlevania will not disappoint (except for season 1 being too short).
Kingdom, with its exciting action scenes and riveting story, sets itself apart from other zombie-related motion pictures (though some scenes were too gory for me).
A Series of Unfortunate Events is somewhat eccentric and even quirky. But it does entertain.
Carmen Sandiego is filled with unanswered questions and plot holes, but it's supposed to teach kids about geography, right? If you take that fact into consideration, the TV series might have hope.
Full House is full of laughs, only if you watch it without too much thought.
The house is fuller than it was in Full House. But the laughter is lesser (not to mention its lack of emotions).
Filled with 'tons of surprises' that are not surprising and 'impressive' characters that are so easy to forget, Lost in Space Season 2 is an utter disappointment. The Robot says, "Danger Will Robinson". I say, "No more Will Robinson".
Green Arrow reminds me a bit of Batman, but stands out in its own way.
I think the narrative's a little slow, but Supergirl is interesting enough.
Great show. Great Story.
Lost in Space is definitely not an exciting TV series. But it does entertain us with an intersting space-themed story, love for one's family, and the desire to live.
I only watched this TV series because I wanted to see a fresh superhero story(something other than DC or Marvel, if you know what I mean). And Raising Dion's story actually is pretty interesting. But overall, the series is a pretty bad mess and you can't fix that with an interesting story alone.
Stranger Things is probably one of the best TV series I've ever watched. It has just the right amount of everything: It's scary enough. It's funny enough. It's exciting enough. And so on. Wow.... It's impressive, really. The suspenseful story is so original and the actors are great too(Millie Bobby Brown's Eleven is amazing). And even with strange('r') things like other dimensions, superhumans, and creepy monsters in its plot, this series did not leave any trace of confusion in my head, which is something. This is difinitely a must-see for everyone.
Gotham is still dark and gloomy. But even without Batman, surprisingly, the series keeps on working smoothly.
Gotham is really gloomy. I felt sick while watching it. But it is also thrilling and exciting. The Batman inspired TV series seems interesting enough for both DC fans and newcomers too. You just have to wonder, though, in this dark city filled with gangsters, corrupted officials, and psycopaths, how can anyone 'not' go crazy?
The Witcher is dark, but also exciting. With Henry Cavil's cool character, Geralt of Rivia, as the main attraction, the TV series is filled with great action scenes. The story is interesting and the diverse characters are a good addtion to the story. The only disappointment was that it based too much of its plotline on 'destiny', making some parts of the series a bit awkward. But still, I'm excited for the next season and can't wait to see what will come next.
