Wayne (2019– )
User ReviewsReview this title
Why did an old guy like a show about two mid-teens, you may well ask. 1. The story is really interesting and the characters all seem surprisingly genuine, even though they are mostly on the extreme end of one spectrum or another. 2. There is real tension in the show, you really expect anyone could die at anytime. 3. Some of the characters are quite relatable, at least in some of their beliefs and actions. For example, I can really identify with Wayne and his dad's strong sense of justice and fairness. 4. The music is pretty awesome. 5. The sound is very good and even with the thick Bawstun accents, I could understand almost all the dialogue. 6. There is a lot of action and violence but it does not seem overly gratuitous. You can almost believe that some of this really happened. 7. The chemistry between Wayne and many of the other characters, especially Del, is really amazing. 8. The story lines all move along nicely, except for one twist near the end of season one. I won't give it away but I could not figure out any plausible way it could happen.
9. I love free and Youtube Premium is giving us one month free. Thanks Youtube Premium, thanks cast and crew of Wayne and thanks for reading. cheers, Jim
I highly recommend this show. It is worth a watch and it definitely makes you take a step back and process things.
After hearing positive rumblings, I decided to give Youtube a free trial just to see this series. I must say, I just finished Sex Education--which is flawless and enchanting, so I needed something to hold me over and keep me out of a show hole.
I love violent content. I'm 30, so it is instilled in me from the content in cinema growing up. Right from the very start this show grabs you along the ride for a coming of age series. Each episode, with ten total, is about 36 minutes. They each are paced just right with the perfect tone to a FUN viewing experience. Cobra Kai was so great so I'm hard pressed in saying this, but Wayne is the superior Youtube Original among the best 3, impulse being the third.
With a couple of reviews thus far I'm not suprised being the streaming platform is more favored for live TV for the cord cutters, but I'm not going to suggest to anyone to try Youtube for a free 30 trial, but I did because the worst that can happen was I wouldnt like it and I cancel immediately and get my money back. You're right, I still am once I explore a little, but this platform is not for me, however this show absolutely is.
Do yourself a favor and don't miss watching what is among this years (month) best shows to come out. It's a wild and thrilling experience. FYI, the production is top notch, which I appreciate such things and it shows me Youtube is headed in the right direction. Enjoy. Check out Sexual education it's the best comedy that feels like a John Hughes world. Sorry to add that.
