With an idea borrowed from X-Men, and many other sources, it's a pastiche of pointlessness. It's a bit like Harry Potter where they conveniently decided not to use their magic powers in ways that would end it in one episode. They just need one character to be an unreasonable jerk to generate conflict, and that's Diego. Of course I'll be watching Season 2.
Great show with shades of both X-men, Watchmen and The Royal Tenenbaums. What I appreciate the most is that the show refuses to get bogged down in superhero CGI mayhem in favour of family and character drama. The casting and acting is very good and the production design and score/soundtrack are solid. Sure, not all parts of it are 24 carat gold, but as a TV-shows go, this is excellent and way better than many shows.
I cared very little about most of the characters. A number of plot holes and unrealistic scenes (10 gallons of gas blow up and burn down an entire building?! The guys in the last episode have a worse shot than Stormtroopers) that irk me. That being said...I'll still watch season 2 mostly because I want to know how it ends
So focused on pre-determination that every plot beat feels forced into a boring and inescapable pattern. Story threads are so disparate that tying them together feels pointless. The actors, for the most part, are charismatic and well-suited for their archetypical roles. But it feels like the writers don't even realize they made "#1" the villain. Time travel is used as a deus ex machina to make the same mistakes again
Non conoscevo l'esistenza del fumetto. La storia non è la più originale, dopo aver visto tanti supereroi e supercattivi, non è difficile indovinare le dinamiche in cui si imbatterà questa variopinta famiglia. Nonostante questo, i sette fratelli hanno personalità ben distinte che lavorano perfettamente assieme. I migliori sono Klaus e Five, senza dubbio. Non vedo l'ora di vedere la seconda stagione.
