Back To "Paradise"
20 June 2014 | by AnnaHeidickSee all my reviews

I liked the premier. It has action and all this interesting stuff going on with the town with the E rep. Also a bit of the continued cult mystery with Irisa. It's definitely setting up for a good season. Warning tho: This episode is really mature. Has violence, brutal bloody bit, drugs and hands. Not for kids to watch!! I don't get why they put the hands in there. It shouldn't be necessary, but they did anyway.

Also extra bit. Video game to TV cross over with Varus. So if you don't play the game you won't know about him and Nolan. Anyway, Varus looked weird but I suppose that's what happens when you take a virtual Votan to real life. However, it was still nice to get a glimpse of him.
