    Love this. But man, if you did away with every character in the Academy, aside from #5 and Klaus, I'd still love the show. The others are just ok? Rumour is really cool on paper but I'd like to see her use her powers outside of 1 or 2 flashbacks. Granted, I'm only halfway through on episode 5

    Ben's powers are cool as hell, too. It's a shame he's dead

    I think you’re gonna change your mind about this by the end! Vanya has always been my favorite.

    Yeah this was great. Bummed I finished watching through it. But, Vanya's powers were cool, but she just came off as super whiny the whole time with really bad life decisions.

    Like, I wonder how many times she said "I know I've only known him a few hours/days and this sounds crazy, but...". Felt like a lot heh. Then her being constantly angry at her siblings for being left out just made no sense. Like, she doesn't (at the time) have any powers - what exactly does she want to do other than be a liability because they have to protect her the whole time? It's like she had a death wish lol. The rest of the series was great.

    EDIT
    Luther was pretty whiny and useless too. He pretty much caused the Apocalypse by ignoring the woman he supposedly loves and being violent against Vanya, not once, but TWO times. He never shut up about the moon either lol.

    Spoiler warnings y'all, guess I am backing out of this thread until I finish. I only got to watch 3 episodes so far.

    Heh yeah, I used to spoiler tag until I read the forum rules:
    The forum's general policy is that once a movie, or TV show, has aired, and it has been officially released, spoiler tags are no longer needed.

  10. Love this so much. Not finished yet, but I absolutely love love love the way they subverted the time reversal trope. Reversing all of the happiness to the point of the meeting really took me back.

    I’m through three episodes and didn’t read the comics beforehand. Episode 2 was a bit of a dip but I’m really enjoying it so far. Definitely checking out the comic.

    Imo, this show is a way more successful adaptation of the comics than Chilling Adventures of Sabrina was
     
  13. My only complaint is how predictable a lot of the beats are. Those seem to be right out of the comic though, so I guess I can't really complain. lol

    Just popping in to say I’m on episode 6, I love this, I don’t know why I never read the comics, and I just ordered them all.

    Assuming season 1 is based on volume 1, am I correct in thinking this season is only based on 6 issues? Given how long ago they came out I assumed they were going off a lot more material.

    It takes some bits and pieces of volume 2 as well, but overall yeah it's mostly an adaptation of that first volume. For example, Hazel and Cha-Cha are not in volume 1, but they are in volume 2
     
  19. Watch Misfits. Everyone in this thread should. Its very very similar in tone.

    yeah as someone else mentioned they adapted volumes 1 and 2 respectively and fleshed out things from the comics that allow for what I think are more emotionally impactful than they were when I read the comics.

    The writing in episode two is shockingly bad - especially compared to 1 & 3 which have some rough moments but not nearly as bad or as frequent as the dialogue in 2.

    Huge fan of the comics and overall really enjoying the show. I've seen a lot of people watching on my commute which makes me pleased as punch.
