Underrated gem!
18 January 2021 | by AJaybirdSee all my reviews

I haven't read the comics, so this is coming purely from a TV series reviewer on how they have enjoyed this show. This show was always on my radar, and honestly should be given a show despite the reviews emanating in this section. So firstly I highly suggest a watch!

I find it personally to be a more honest depiction of how teenagers would deal with the issues that are faced with. This show presents this moral dilemma from seeing people black and white, and the reality that the world is morally grey, giving view of how these teenagers have to question their world with their newfound knowledge.

This show also gives a good amount of diverse and LGBT representation I believe is sorely needed in media, and this show heralds it forward with normalising it by it being 'just fact' with the teens realities.

In terms of effects, I think they all work, especially some scenes where there is a certain character which I'm always guessing if they are either using a prop head of VFX. Sometimes it looks 'obvious' but I hand it to the budget and that VFX can point out the 'otherworldly' nature of it in comparison to the live action. It however does get a bit wonky in an episode in season 3, but I believe it is because of the limited budget they may have had pertaining to the crossover in that episode.

There is an issue with the other reviews I've been seeing here, and I think you should disregard them and give this show a shot. Many of these reviews are short without explanation, and are in regards to how a character is 'too annoying'. It is a character trait of hers, and personally I've met people in real life like her (especially in the generation that this show portrays). However, I do agree that this show does not use this character more because of budgeting issues, and honestly as much as I love the actor they probably should've done an alternative for the character for this issue.

If you can understand that it is not the show trying to be 'woke' but just an aspect of a character that had this trait in the comics, then I believe that this show is honestly needing more attention, especially after the cancellation... so please give this show a watch! It's made me interested enough to check out the comics after finishing it!
