Trivia

In the comics, in order for Nico's magic to work, Nico must make a blood sacrifice by making herself bleed by any means necessary (mostly by cutting herself). But in the show, it was change to having Nico pricking her thumb to a needle in the staff, reading her DNA in the process. This was done to avoid controversy about self-harm, which seen as a response to another teen drama, 13 Reasons Why. See more »

There Can Only Be One.... season
30 November 2017 | by travis-139-868167See all my reviews

This series is an excellent example of the importance of good screen writing. Perhaps any lesson one might wish to learn about what to avoid while adapting or creating a television series can be gleaned from the missteps found in this series.

The only thing more cliché than saying that the writing in Runaways is a train wreck, is the series itself. Some (but by NO MEANS all) of the actors and actresses in this series are clearly more talented than the limited script permits them to be, but there is just simply no escaping the dumpster fire that is the written pages which found their way upon the screen.

After enduring the three episodes and asking myself, "what is happening here?" "What is this about?" "Who are the bad guys?" "Who are the heroes?" All I can find myself replying is that not even the writer knows up to this point, and with ten minutes left in the fourth episode I found myself yearning for some way for my wasted hours of life to return to me.

The series has, in writerly terms, spent entirely too much time laying pipe, and the plot moves with all the speed and menace of a shipwrecked barge.

I demand a refund on my time.
