User Reviews

 
A show worth watching again and again.
26 December 2016 | by silversilverworksSee all my reviews

This show was a triumph For del Toro and for Nexflix. Rarely do I find a show for children that completely captures me as an adult. While the broad picture is a fantasy world built for children, the script and storytelling will pull in any parent who watches it with them. Trollhunters does something very few forms of entertainment do these days, it offers something parents and children can enjoy together.

As I watched the show my two sons (11 and 3) were all enjoying it and for the same reasons. The imagery, the suspense, the action and the emotion made you want to binge watch it to the end. I know it will be something to watch again (with two boys it's inevitable) and I am sure that it will be a show to look for missed treasures that were missed before.
