Reunion
18 April 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Episode 1 of Runaways looks like any Californian based drama of rich high school kids. Although given this is a Marvel series, they are bound to have some kind of superpowers and it will have some kind of inspiration from Buffy - The Vampire Slayer, after all James Marsters is in this.

The teenagers are the usual mix. The nerdy Alex (Rhenzy Feliz), purple hair dyed troublemaker Gert (Ariela Barer), the goth Nico (Lyrica Okano), winsome Karolina (Virginia Gardner), the jock Chase (Gregg Sulkin) and innocent and baby of the group Molly (Allegra Acosta.)

Most of them are not friends any more, Chase and Alex have grown apart but they were all friends because their parents. The parents are rich, some powerful, some more fabulous and all are involved in a charity group called the Pride.

The episode concludes as the teens find a secret passage, Pride are having their annual gathering but what they witness is something more nefarious. The teens have plenty of reason to distrust their parents who may not be god but the opposite.

Not many runaways apart from the opening scene where a young girl who has runaway from her home is seemingly accosted by two Spanish speaking young men before she is rescued by the Church of Gibborim. The Spanish speaking men say afterwards she would had been safer with them.

The drama looks like it will be a grungy slow burn drama, as the Runaways are not expected to runaway until season 2.
