Another adolescent fantasy tripe. Seriously, who keeps thinking it's a good idea to make these. Throw a bunch of teens dressed in tight clothes into a pot, add some demons and superpowers, and then layer it with a bunch of cheesy dialogue to explain what's going on. Sooooo tiresome. At no time will you ever believe they are in any danger, or any emotions they are conveying is real, or that they themselves believe a single word that is coming out of their mouths.

This story of demon hunters protecting normal people (mundanes) as their mission but the whole time they show nothing but contempt for normal humans. It's just bad writing. The story is contrived, the relationships are shallow, and it is just dull, lacking anything that is remotely original. This show should just stay in the shadows and fade away.
