Give it a chance; In the end, was not disappointed
9 January 2018 | by bernie-cobbSee all my reviews

Like many shows, it takes a few episodes to get into a show before you can really make a true assessment on it. After reading a lot of these reviews and looking at when they were made, most were too soon to make a true and honest assessment of the show.

Having just watched the season finale, I can say with confidence that this is a really good show! Admittedly, it took some time to get into but after understanding the characters (both the Runaways themselves and their parents) there was so much history, conspiracy, and mystery to be unraveled that I couldn't get enough of it! Bottom line...give it a real chance (maybe through Episode 6) before you make a judgement as that is when the true nature and understanding of the characters comes to the surface. There is always a bit of character development with any new show...patience!

I gave the show a 9/10 because I thought the ending could have been better. It was NOT a bad ending, but I had just hoped for a slightly better closure of the season. Hoping for Season 2!!
