Perfect ? No, But Awful ? Absolutely Not
8 October 2019 | by enhawj-09682See all my reviews

This show is kind of complicated. Of course, Dion can come off as annoying, or difficult to deal with, and while his acting isn't the greatest, the way they write his character makes sense. I never get the feeling that he's bratty, and though maybe spoiled, he's still just a kid. This is how kids act like. They do things you don't want to do, because they just don't understand, and perhaps he's unbearable for others, I think he develops well, because he eventually starts listening, and starts paying attention, and it's strange because it was genuinely so subtle and natural to me, especially as he starts to understand his powers more.

Moving on, the mother, Nicole, is extremely emotional, and might get on people's nerves, especially with how she deals with situations. But the fact of the matter is, is that she clearly cares. She's scared of her son, and rightfully so, because as amazing as Dion's powers are, he's still just a child, and yet he has so much responsibility at his age. She's fearful of him, but no matter what, she still loves him, and though she's a helicopter parent, it's not without reason. She's emotional, but she does have some good moments with her more emotional moments. She does have a lot of flashbacks, especially in the first episode, and while I'm desensitized to it, others may find the excessive use of flashbacks annoying, and I do agree they weren't needed since there wasn't anything else of substance to their relationship other than it was a healthy one. There's nothing to be noted or taken away from them excelt for one of them in the later episodes.

The plot itself is easy to follow, and though they briefly touch on racial issues, it's only for one episode and is briefly mentioned in another episode. It's nothing preachy, just there. I think that this too might get on people's nerves, but I promise, it's not unbearable.

That being said, I really enjoyed this show, flaws and all. This is really one of those shows where you should watch it before you judge it too harshly though, but it's up to you considering each episode is about 40-50 minutes.
