Wow… Okay…so… I’m not in love with it as I am with Doom Patrol…but this was a fucking good start. I think I wouldn’t have had the accident already in teh first episode… and I wanted to see more interaction between Abby and Alec as humans before the shit hit the fan. Anyway some notes I made throughout the show:
The beginning has No real context, but very dramatic but predictable opening. Good but we saw it coming…The attack was intense though.
Very lack luster credit scene
Abby Drives a Jeep!
They weren’t kidding about the body horror! The autopsy scene holy shit that is some creepy, gory shit…
I like Alec…but I was expecting a blonde… plus I hope they don’t try to make him too over the top cliché scientist
The makeup is amazing. I really could see this as near theatrical level effects
Avery…looks like a spitting image of Nuke-face from the comics!
I like the actress for Abby… but not sure if I like her as Abby if that makes sense. She’s a bit too…pretty.
A black Liz Treymane….okay!
I know it’s probably not going to happen…but I love Allec’s Bayou lab stronghold. I assume it’s going to be ripped apart in a fiery explosion, ending his life…but one can dream.
Very much reminds me of a “B Horror movie” and actually that’s a good thing.
Ohhh he dies on the boat…not in his lab…Yes! The Bayou stronghold survives!
So good stuff overall, I still wish there would have been atleast one full episode before Alec is killed, because honestly, with only one episode with him…and him being given only half the episode we don’t get alot of building between he and Abby. I think Len Wein would be very proud of this… And while it’s very heavy on the horror which I love, I do hope in season 2 we begin to move away from the shock and awe of the horror and into more meatier, DC themed stories…ahem…Justice League Dark… Either way I’m really locked in, and with Doom Patrol out, this is slipping into my number one!
