A welcome addition to "super power" stories
17 July 2018 | by majolilloSee all my reviews

I'll refrain from saying anything specific. But what I really liked about this series is how creative, "unformulatic" and surprising it is.

Typicially watching series these days I easilly catch "filler" patterns that will go on for the full series except perhaps the first and last episode per season. Charlotte also plays with such patterns, but then abruptly without warning change things up to something highly new and surprising. Just when I thought I had this series all figured out and could predict how it would proceed for the rest of the season, my idea was shattered, and always kept me on the edge of my seat.

All in all. Great series!
