Great show, amazing re-imagining of Prisoner...solid acting all around. Genuine scenes from "nothing" to emotional, to scary. Well rounded characters. I'm waiting for someone as repugnant as Jax to come along again (when the show was admittedly at it's best, first couple of seasons), but it still manages to retain interest, and you really do feel for...most of...the characters.
I don't think this season is off to a stellar start, though still very watchable.
I can't wait for the twists and turns when it comes to the repercussions of what happened at the end of last season, eh?

Episode 1 of Marvels "Cloak & Dagger".
What a strange couple of characters to have got their own show...I mean at their height of popularity (I'd say the mid 80's?) I wasn't yet reading comics, they made some appearances later down the line but yknow...how every character they're more or less done with makes the occasional appearance...I always thought they were kind of more interesting characters, even enough to kind of get past their wonder twins type shtick.

Look I actually thought it was ok.
Out of the Marvel "little" shows I've seen, legion, the gifted (which I really wanted to like with it's roster of characters being what it was...but, nope), inhumans and the Runaways, is stands with the Runaways as those that have kept me interested past episode 1.
I kind of feel like it might get cancelled though? I dunno...this is just a money grab right? Side stringer, now all but irrelevant characters just to see if the big M can sell it? Like I said though, seems ok to me. Not sure how true to the origins of the characters it is, like I said, before my comics time. I kind of like it because it's weird. Strange characters that were commonplace in comics of that era...I find it weird this show exists. Though I am not unfond of it.

Effects are ok.
Cast is whatever.
Doesn't seem to be overly reliant on in-jokes and references which to the unfamiliar a plus.
No villain or major threat has yet presented themselves so not sure where I land on that - I suppose they at least gave the whole episode as the origin story and kept it fairly tidy.
There's not much to say so far. It's an alright origin story, and it kept my interest enough, which is more not than often for a Marvel show.
Check it out if you like this kind've thing.
