I know those that hate it are little boys that have never seen breasts and like their porn served soft. Sheep are going to love this series and that's a fact. I gave it a 5 for the visual style because visually it's very well done. There are several different styles of animation some I liked better than others but over-all I thought that 5/10 was appropriate.
The stories were for the most part, pretty terrible. Where was the love? I saw a lot of sex but no real love and by the third episode I was convinced that Alberto Mielgo is an emotionally stunted wanna be grown-up. No wonder Sony fired him.
The stories themselves were pretty much the same thing over and over again. I saw no originality. You know how in a video game they give you a vignette of the story line? Well, these stories reminded me of the same thing. Especially the ones about war/blowing stuff up. You could tell that most of the stories/vignettes presented were based on stories written by men. I don't like to say that all men think alike; perhaps just the ones that the unseen hand supports?
If you want to see cartoons having sex, things being blown-up, as well as mediocre story telling, then here you go.… Expand

It is obvious that hollyweird and cohorts have an agenda and that is to allow those same living, breathing pedophiles to escape justice. They have no shame. This is a disgusting campaign to go after someone that cannot defend himself. Nice try but every one knows who the real pos criminals are.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.1Feb 24, 2019I was looking forward to this but came away sorely disappointed. The summary doesn't give anything away, just that the adoptive dad is deadI was looking forward to this but came away sorely disappointed. The summary doesn't give anything away, just that the adoptive dad is dead and the kids that he adopted come back to the place they were raised. They (the grown-up kids) have so many issues. Sure they've got powers of a kind, and at the same time, they never really got over their childhood. This is mostly a drama about how they feel as grown-ups, coming to terms with their upbringing AND all their dialogue feels fake and forced.
Yes, there are some flash-backs. There are a few superhero moments, and there are a few bad guys thrown in the mix, but it's not enough. It is tediously slow and poorly edited. I didn't want it to be boring but it 'is' boring. It takes forever for them to get to the point and by the time they get there, I don't care anymore.
So, it's slow and poorly written. There's some atmosphere, and a few good special effects, but that's pretty much it. It's a solid 3 out of 10.… Expand

How does someone, "only to awakens the next day"?
No, not my kind of show. I didn't care for the atmosphere and that same awful song, lol. The chain-smoking ridiculousness of the main character was so completely over the top. Do people from New York really behave that way? Do they go to crappy parties with artsy, fartsy people? What a $hit $how. It's supposed to be a comedy but I never laughed. Not. One. Time.
Lyonne, Amy Poehler and Leslye Headland, you guys suck and so does your show.… Expand

What's so funny about it is that the judges seem to be so into it and of course they would be because they're getting paid monster salaries. Yeah, this is just terrible television and the money could have been better spent elsewhere.… Expand

The abandoned passengers must work together for survival, but quickly realize that one of them is far from who they claim to be."
First of all, this was very slow going. It seems that an ensemble piece has to have its cliches, and this series is no different. There were so many flashbacks. Each primary character had their flashback episode to fill us as to why they were there, on the ship in space. The episodes were repeats of shows we've seen before and although production values appear to be solid, the story just drags. I think the dragging feeling this show gives off is because the flashbacks are long, and they are often.
I made the effort to like it but it was very boring and nothing could make me want to come back for more. I did make it through two episodes and am not going to be watching the rest of this series. I think if you don't mind the same old, same old, then you might enjoy this one. I don't have the heart to recommend it to anyone.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.1Nov 10, 2018This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This could have been better. The acting was good and the production values were outstanding except for that blurring thing they did around the edges, wtf was that all about? The story-line was pretty lame and it still has no idea where it's going. Another thing that bothered me was that most of the characters seemed cliche. It didn't make any sense that in the beginning of the series, satan could see and hear everything but then later on, he was not as involved as he had been.
A few things that ticked me right off; Susie the bullied friend that dresses like a boy. I'm fine with her dressing like a boy and it's fine that her aunt from back in the day used to dress like a boy but if it's not part of the story then for crying out loud, drop it. Roz, the outspoken friend who is going blind. For god's sake, why the tears about books that have been banned? Don't be a tool. Buy them and read them at home. Ambrose the gay cousin under house arrest, but finds a lover at a funeral, really? There was more but you get my point.
The writing is pretty bad. The aunts, have moments of good dialogue but for the most part the writing is shallow and obtuse. For someone who supposedly has amazing critical thinking skills, Sabrina gets tricked.
So, yeah, not impressed with any of it and will not return to watch season 2.… Expand

After receiving a call from a friends daughter, Harry goes back to his hometown to help investigate a double homicide. It started out with lots of promise, but ended up with so many holes that the end result was unbelievable. There were at least 6 different things that weren't explained and it was as though the writer/director/producer put these things in there to confuse anyone watching.
By the end, this series seemed like one of those books with an unreliable narrator. From the 3rd episode on, you can't believe what the film maker is leading you to believe. I don't want to recommend it because the ending was such a letdown. It gets a 4 out of 10 for acting and for production values.… Expand

Amy was a kidThis series was a waste of time. The acting was okay the production values were the only thing that allowed me to rate it a 3. Amy was a kid that should have grown up but she didn't. Instead they had a grown woman play her all the way through. I also thought that many of the things that made the girls different were not emphasized enough. They all seemed to be the same person with no real differences at all. Most of the important events were not well expressed or were omitted entirely. So yes, this series was a complete fail and I do not recommend it.… Expand
Average User Score: 8.0Feb 4, 2018I enjoyed this series but I did not read the book that the show is based on. I must admit that it was difficult going for the first threeI enjoyed this series but I did not read the book that the show is based on. I must admit that it was difficult going for the first three episodes because there were certain things that were not revealed until episode 4 and then other things that were better explained in episode 7. I do not want to spoil it for you, please watch and be patient. I thought the casting choice for Kristin Ortega was a miss. I didn't like the character at all and by episode 4, I understood her better but as an actress she's not very good. I thought Miriam Bancroft looked exactly like Courtney Love (kinda gross, I know). Miriam is played by Kristin Lehman and she did an okay job. There were a few characters that were outstanding; Matt Biedel was amazing as was Chris Conner. Joel Kinnaman and James Purefoy carried their characters quite nicely. Hayley Law was an excellent choice to play Lizzie Elliot. I enjoyed Waleed Zuaiter's performance and Dichen Lachmen was so good as Reileen Kawahara . There were many others that stood out but this is just off the top of my head. The special effects were very well done and I recognized a few places from around here in Vancouver, BC. A few things to know... There is nudity and some sex. It's not crazy over the top sex, but it is there. There is blood and violence as well so be prepared. The ending was well done and they could do another series if they wanted but this story wrapped up very well indeed. I gave it an 8 out of 10 because of the strength of the acting was not always evident and I feel like they cheaped-out on the music.… Expand
