Worth Watching
9 June 2018 | by sweetkandicampbellSee all my reviews

I was hooked after the first three episodes and Literally binged watched the entire 10 episodes in one day.... I like the narrative.... it focuses on yes this teenager is discovering a superpower but it also makes her a normal teenage girl.... the main character however is not very likeable... she is moody and just down right mean... and I think they need to make her more likeable... you feel bad for her circumstances but you are not rooting for her... I think they tried to make it not another superhero movie... and they played it well because the season left so many unanswered questions that if you become truly invested in the series you will be on the look out for season 2.... around episode 6 or 7 I started to lose a little interest where I would be on my phone while it was playing on the background on my laptop... but it picked up by episode 9 and 10... I would say give it a shot... if after the first 3 episodes your not interested don't think you will gain interest as the series progresses... the first 3 episodes truly are defining.
