Wrong focus
8 February 2020 | by toddchaSee all my reviews

If this series is about magic then 1/10 in one episode is about magic. The rest is either their school life which is exceptionally irrelevant or their boring interactions. Especially the mom, I gotta say even the teens act better than she. Their old story with the weird guy is So typical of Netflix. Well, ask yourself what you will do if tou have these magic items. Then you will know how illogical the series is.

Update: in a series of 10, e7 should accumulate the tension caused by the keys. After multiple use of the keys they should know how to use the keys. The keys should become handy or helpful when the family was in emergency. However the kids just are surprisingly naive and not smart. I am not sure if the screenwriter on propose made the family that way but in reality I don't think poeple should be that weak. That's how and why the series is hard to achieve a real intensive peak/climax that punches right on audience's heart.
