That does not inspire confidence.

I have 2 episodes left. It's okay. A lot of stuff is predictable where a bunch of super powered kids have to save the world from an apocalypse. Knowing how most TCGers are, most of you won't like it, and maybe a couple/few will. I somewhat like it. It's not horrible, but it's not great. Something to check out I guess if you don't have anything else on to watch.

It's a "The Magician"s copy so check out that show if you want to see a good, young adult, drama/comedy. A group of students are enrolled at a school for magic after their abilities manifest. They discover there is magic in this world and the world of Fillary which has all the gods, nymphs, etc. They go back and forth trying to, sort of, do good. Pretty risque and violent. They're in Season 3 now.

Just pounded out this season in a couple nights. I enjoyed it quite a bit. Plot is super predictable but still enjoyable. Klaus is the saving grace of the show if you ask me. Finale left it wide open for season 2.

It’s not a bad series. The wife and I watched it over the course of a week and weren’t let down by it. Go in with zero expectations and you may find that all the beats are predictable but the show is fun and doesn’t linger on any one plot too long. I’d say if you don’t have anything else to watch right now it’s worth seeing.

I binged season 1 last few days, I quite enjoyed the show.

Better than your average, and not always predictable (to me).
