    Watched the first episode and it's a poor zombie show with nothing going for it unlike Wynonna Earp; I barely scraped through the first episode and that's it for me.

    I'll give it one more before deciding, still in 2 minds about Wynonna Earp so have got a few more episodes


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,813 ✭✭✭ Joeface


    Cheers for taking the hit.

    WE , casting was right, but terrible writing and directing. I gave it 5eps and that's breaking my own rule

    Didn't need the demon hunting, supernatural owns that. Could have done US Marshal thing and filled the void left by justified

    Swede is best part of the show

    I'll give it a miss then. I'm struggling with Wynona Earp so given that, I'd say this is a no no. Wynona Earp isn't a badly executed show but I find the premise so completely stupid that I can't really buy into the whole thing.

    It kicked off last night on Syfy with a double episode nothing great about it really.

    Just watched up to Ep 4.

    Not a bad show, just not great and even I'm getting tired of the post apocalyptic story lines, and I do enjoy them. The TV execs are really mining this genre too much (never thought I'd be saying that).


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,428 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    The full season was added to Netflix today.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 6,751 ✭✭✭ Avatar MIA


    I think this improved as it went along. The story line has opened up in the last 3 eps. Strangely enough this was
    also the eps the lead male character went missing. I liked him, but it was coming across as his show up until that point and had to change.

    Re the main character. Shot in some angles she's quite pretty, but her jaw makes her very manly looking at times. Yeah, insightful stuff I know :pac:

    It grew on me as it went along I have to say and in the end I enjoyed it.

    Not majorly inspired by the trailer. Will probably see what the feedback is before committing. So, on your heads be it!


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,428 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Season 2 starts October 5th.

    Season 3 Comic Con trailer.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭ deafroadrunner


    This definitely picked up in season 2. Was ready to call it quits after 2 episodes of season 1 but was told to stick it. Looking forward to season 3.

  • Registered Users Posts: 55,428 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Season 3 started last night.


    An enjoyable open episode.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,855 ✭✭✭ Sudden Valley


    Got into this series late but writers definitely seem to enjoy writing mad storylines. Not the biggest fan of scarlet so am happy that van helsing actress is back fulltime after giving birth.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,906 ✭✭✭ EoinMcLovin


    Renewed for a fourth season


  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 58,873 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Wibbs


    I kinda got into this by mistake :D but I do enjoy it for what it is. The lead actress was a bit clunky at first, but got much better. They keep it fresh by changing the dynamics of the threat and the Scooby gang with every season. Something that shows like The Walking Dead could learn from.

    Rejoice in the awareness of feeling stupid, for that’s how you end up learning new things. If you’re not aware you’re stupid, you probably are.

    All set up now for a great finale next week.

    Yeah, but I've a feeling this is the last season. Sure the main character has hardly been on screen for most of the season.

    I thought that it was definitely anounced as the last season, but I could have missed something, as I generally do :p

    It hasn't been announced yet if it has been renewed or cancelled, will probably know next week. But knowing SyFy it's hard to tell as they cancelled alot of shows (Deadly Class, Krypton) this year.

    I was wrong.

    Nicely set up now for a final balls to the wall mental final season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,214 ✭✭✭ Sonics2k


    Finally got around to watching Season 4 and most of the way through.

    It's true that Vanessa is barely in the season, but imo that's a good thing. Of all the characters I found her one the weakest. Quite frankly the season is not great, but it's alright.

    However, there is a stand out episode "No 'I' in team.". That is a bloody fantastic episode and in itself is worthy of being a full blown movie, because it's better than most vampire/horror movies out there.
