There Can Only Be One.... season
30 November 2017 | by See 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.
