Oh brother. This is gonna be rough.

I just watched the first 8 minutes of episode one and had to walk away. This one is gonna be a rough one. At least for me. Waaay too much like a CW show with super bright lights, music that they must have pulled from Fair Use sites and acting that already seems worse than some daytime dramas (Although I loved my Days of Our Lives when I was younger ...  Cheesy)

No way I am sitting through this tonight and may not make it back anytime soon. But if anyone else wants to jump in, watch the first few episodes to let me know if it gets watchable ... I mean MORE watchable  Wink, let me know

I really did enjoy the comics. This is not that.

Never read the comics and just finished episode #4. It's definitely not the Boys or Invincible. I really want to give the Utopian a shampoo and haircut. My favorite character so far is Uncle Walt.

 Grin
Well as you may know  Grin I finished the series in about 2 days, after Jeff told me I should try past the 8 minutes that I had seen
 Grin
I was, most chances, going to get back to it ... eventually ... maybe ... hahaha... but Jeff's enthusiasm for the show (which was not a "Oh, you have to watch this!" level, but a mere, "I think you should give it more time" level) made me curious to dive back in a heck of a lot quicker than I would have.

Are there issues that I have? Oh yeah! Is it much better than I had originally thought it was going to be? By a large percentage!
The "brightness" of the show was tamped down, almost immediately after the first credits roll and the further you guy the more use of shading comes into play. The "CS" look didn't permeate my eyes as I feared it was going to ... it softened quite a bit. Thankfully

If Jeff would not have said anything, I would have walked away, for a good bit, and graded this show (based on the 8 minute opening) a piss-poor D-, but after watching the entirety of it, I give it a solid B

Still not something I am going to push my (non-comic reading) brother to watch, but I did retract what I had told him -
"Avoid this shit like the plague"
and gave him an updated -
"So, hey, I watched the whole thing and ... okay, it may not be for you, but it may, so if you're bored, I think you could enjoy it"

I agree.  The first episode wasn’t great up until the battle at the end.  Then the rest of the series got better with each episode.  I really enjoyed the pieces that took place in the past the most and it did make me look forward to a 2nd season.

Nothing officially yet, but when they bought all of MillarWorld ... everything, I figured everything was getting at least two season automatically. Even the stuff that didn't need it

(This show certainly not being one of those  Cheesy)
