User Reviews

Decent adaptation
25 June 2019 | by Clive_WSee all my reviews

I love the comic series, big fan, when I heard they were making a show I couldn't wait, I was skeptic over SYFY being the ones behind the show, seeing as they have cancelled a lot of decent shows in recent months. And today it was sadly made official, we won't be getting a second season, such a shame, all fans of the comic know what would have been coming in the next season with the "die for me" arc. But not like it can be change, we have the one season to enjoy and at the very least we have the comics.

If you haven't read the comics I would strongly recommend, especially if you enjoyed the show.

Although the show has been cancelled I would recommend people to check it out, it seemed to be received well with critics, and viewer numbers weren't bad, it was never meant to be a mainstream show, I don't expect it to be a show for everyone.

If you want some fun, bit of change from mainstream tv shows, this is worth checking out.

The overall feel to the show was interesting, I loved the way it was filmed, the Vegas episode was a great take on fear and loathing, and overall was fairly close to the comic, with a couple changes here and there for tv reasons to fill out 10 episodes. So go check it out enjoy, and maybe check out the comic to.
