Child-Like Sight And Sound Wonder That Is Still Rather Cool
The first episode of Shazam! does not seem like an opening episode as nothing about the regular characters is explaining, we get the usual one minute intro at the start, but watching The Joyriders you almost get the feeling that this is not an opening episode at all but rather an episode that may have been filmed later in the series but shown first.
However, it does give us a taste of things to come, we get boys behaving badly, then boys put right at the end, that is what this Shazam! series does from start to finish. But I am not putting the series down: I love it in fact! Shazam! has great energy-charged music playing over action scenes, great location filming, and the regular characters in the series do grow on the viewer.
Don't judge the series from The Joyriders: this is not a bad episode but why they put this one as the series opener is anybody's guess?
