Snoozefest
18 August 2017 | by greenwhichSee all my reviews

I am not even going to bother with the series after that. I literally just fast forwarded the entire episode, because it was that boring, you are watching paint dry. There was no reason for them to even be on TV. This is not a comic book, it's a pretentious social study.

Comic books don't have other lives, outside of how to avoid their disguises being caught out, or their relationships finding them out. A comic book doesn't stop too create its pretentious dialogues of their happy day jobs, and relationships. They aren't a superhero, just TV's idiots, playing dress up with their super strength, basically all of these idiots have that ability. All that means is CGI employed for why they are so exceptional, punching through walls while bleeding their hearts out of why they are so strong as its cripples, junkies, traumatized, or handicapped.

A comic sets its comic as a story of its hero and its villains. There really isn't anything else, apart from the chase, and its action. It doesn't stop to dive into another prospective, it's a flick book.

There was no reason for any defenders to be here, what are they defending us against? Nothing but their ego's.

Banshee, Spartacus, Into the Badlands, Blood Drive, today's comics. I will say Marvel's Agent's of Shield does it well enough for its younger audience, doesn't stop, it's cheesy but enjoyable, and the recent robot theme was exceptional. These other shows, not a clue at all, outside of the pretentious reasoning offered, boring screen time watching paint dry while mining for any actual comic content. That flick book comparison. Even the Punisher's 2 episodes of action fell short of the other 8 of utter freaking drivel. American Gods is a novel, but its content had an interesting comparable comic story. Not shouting the zombie theme and its social study of why any zombies aren't a threat.

Netflix just aren't comics at all... Just an ego better not subscribed
