Chris Henry Coffey,
This show is interesting for fans of the Dragon Age video games. Felicia Day's character Fallis is even featured in Downloadable Content of Dragon Age II: Mark of the Assassin. Her character is also a major problem in this show.
Sure, the show (and Felicia's cleavage) look pretty good, given the budget they worked with. Most of the actors are likable and better than expected. But the Tallis character does not work at all. She is supposed to be bad ass, but she's nothing but annoying. Partially a Mary Sue, a too good to be true character that outwits and overpowers her foes a tad too easily too many times, she also is selfish, arrogant and heartless. That is a real bitch of a main character to relate to.
The writing seems OK, but the point where I stopped watching was when she just throws a dagger into an innocent boy, just to let him prove his healing ability. What if he had bluffed a bit and had not been proficient and just wanted to help out? He'd be dead, thank you Tallis.
I appreciate what was attempted here, but it would have been good to let one of Bioware's people write the script. They let Felicia ruin this potential by allowing her to turn it into a Mary Sue, i.e. your typical average fan fiction. Not too dreadful, but too flawed to bear watching it all the way through.
