Fresh & Delightful
9 January 2017 | by ninaespinozacarrilloSee all my reviews

An incredible series, for the whole family and all ages, fun story, heroic, romantic, epic, full of mythological beings presented with a phenomenal freshness. It contains all the nuances necessary to captivate the public. Worth a second and third season at least.

The characters are solid but do not have enough time in the first season to develop. We did not finish seeing the different facets of the main characters. Being a story based on mythology has incredible possibilities to continue and delight the audience.

It would be a shame not to continue, for my refreshing result to see a proposal of this type of part of Guillermo del Toro, which, without departing from what he usually offers us, ventures into animated projects with a lighter character, being a story fit for everything I publish without being boring or bland.

In my particular opinion the lamentable loss of Anton Yelchin should not mean the truncation of this incredible proposal. I think there are enough actors in the market who can bring new life to Jim's character.

Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy this first season.
