A semi-retired couple who work for a clandestine monster hunting agency discover dark family secrets and the truth about their employer after their magically inclined nigh adult kids reawaken a witch bent on revenge.
Mortal is a strange kinda super power series and I love it! The teen characters are unique, strong, endearing, fun and crazy. The writers may have written a teen focused script on a high school campus but adults will enjoy this series too! The adult characters round the series out. The voodoo grandma is hella funny with her craft. Main characters Sofiane and Victor take the cake. Polar opposites but their relationship/friendship is interesting to watch evolve as they discover their respective powers and emotional balance. The evil character Obe is interesting. More like unique. The eyewear worn looks more like frames with fire coils for lenses. I had no intention of binging this Netflix series but I was hooked. The series highlights a lot of the confusion, emotional turmoil and rollercoaster decisions that is representative of the teen years.
In the final episode there is redemption, healing, resolve & forgiveness. There's also closure of old wounds and the start of new beginnings. The hallway scene between Luisa and Victor is exquisite sweet perfection. The moment is mind blowing. Worthy of a cigarette 🚬 afterwards.
A solid series well written. 10 stars for creativity, great cast, action and storyline.
