For the record , i was actually a reader of the comics back when they first came out, but i understand that adaptions and changes need to be made. That's not the issue.
Comparisons to the Runaways are fair, but that had an intriguing story and more interesting characters .
This show, even when they try to turn the status quo on it's head it's still predicable are tiresome.
I will say I think the 2 leads to a pretty good job, especially the guy who plays Tyrone. Tandy is a somewhat unlikable character , but that's more down to the writing.
The show is predictable , very slow and really more a teen drama than any type of superhero show. As i suspected , the couple don't really become 'Cloak & Dagger ' until right at the end and even then i feel it's not really fully formed yet.
This first season seems way too padded , like they didn't want to get to super heroics until the finale episode. After the pilot it's 8 episodes of padding with very little plot progression but plenty of teen angst
The ridiculous zombie inspired finale is truly terrible with the , you guessed it, beam of light up in the sly cliche .
I wasn't a big fan of the mystical , voodoo type B story line, though i'll give it credit for trying something different to other hero fare.
it's not Inhumans level bad, but even Agents of Shield is better than this. Tweens and young teens may get something from this, but comic book fans might want to look elsewhere
