This show is entertaining, I can’t say I didn’t enjoy watching this first episode. A mix between a fantasy, a game show and gods, it will surely make for some really interesting games and action. Unfortunately, I feel like the characters are a little weak in this show, not power-wise I mean, but in term of how interesting they are. I can already tell that the show will focus more on the games and the rule of this new world than the character themselves. After all when you have a world full of weird creatures and super power you don’t have to worry too much about where to get some new interesting things to come out. Therefore I highly doubt that there will be any more to the current character and right now…they are boring.
Even if a show focus on the action doesn’t mean that they have to discard completely their character and any kind of background. Already this episode we were rushed to this new world where games are played and we have almost no background to those characters and what their power meant in the real world. I feel like there could have been so much cool thing that could have been explained on the life of every character, make it a splendor for them to enter a new world like this. Unfortunately they are all sent to this new world, none of them seems to find any of it weird and they ask so little question and they are so unwavering by what happened that it just left me with a bad taste in my mouth. I just feel like the original set up for the show is really bad and that if they were to rush the beginning and make it so pointless they might as well just skip it entirely and start with the world with the games.
Because of this I felt really disconnected with the show, I cannot say the show will be bad, it will most likely be quite entertaining, but I doubt that any of it will make much sense and that everything will be exaggerated and made really matter of fact. This make it a lot less interesting for me to blog and to watch. I doubt the show will be crap, but It won’t be something to remember, it won’t be something great. At best this show will entertain you the time it airs and you won’t ever remember about it in the future.
I will be watching this show, but I won’t be blogging it, anyone can already tell it is not worth it to do so.
