Wow. They really nailed this prequel series. Just watched the movie the other day.

Edit: okay, in hindsight this may be about the original movie and not the current series. The current series is incredibly well done. The original was creative, unique, and had a great score, but I wouldnít argue that it was a cinematic achievement of any kind. I certainly was the right age and right type for it to be an instant classic with me though.
The original movie was one of my favorites. I have it on DVD. I watched it with my kids several times. But the first 45 minutes of the first episode was bad enough to turn me off of the entire series for good. It's a kiddie show.

Well youíll be doing yourself a real disservice if you continue with that belief. Itís certainly no more kiddie than the original and Iíd think itís even less so with the murder, torture, and suicide that is in this one. Iíd suggest watching the first 3 episodes before making that decision so you donít miss out on an incredible fantasy series. Itís certainly better than that garbage Carnival Row, but maybe fantasy isnít really your thing, I donít know.

Carnival Row was not garbage, at all. I get that you like this, but trashing something else doesn't make it look any better.

Iím hardly alone with that opinion. Itís got a 50% on RT. You may like it, and thatís totally fine, but itís certainly not a popular opinion.

Not the point. That opinion is fine. Using that opinion as a way to prop up something else is weak.

That is to say, if you want me to watch this, then tell me why it's good, not why something else isn't...

In fairness, garbage is a bit strong. Derivative and lackluster is probably a better description. And it shouldnít need to be said, but thatís obviously my opinion. Itís just disheartening when something that was crafted as well DC: AoR gets outshined by a lesser product.

Well...thatís not what I was doing, so...

I donít frankly give a shit if you watch this or not. Itís your loss, not mine. Given that Iíve seen you express your opinion on a number of shows in the past, I can say with pretty good probability that youíll love this. Itís not my job to sell it to you though.
