#2) The Action And Fight Scenes Are Dynamic and Clever
The fact that this is hand-drawn animation really lets the animators cut loose. The fights in this show are genuinely fun to watch, easy to follow, and fast-paced. It’s an action show that isn’t shy about coming up with some genuine action.
#1) The Writing Is Actually Shockingly Good
Seriously, considering this is an attempt to cash in on a dormant franchise from an entertainment conglomerate known for grinding it out, there are some great touches here. Paige may be a bad guy, but she’s obviously more practical and less fanatical than Tesler. Similarly, Beck’s pretty competent, but when he starts thinking about the consequences of his action, he falters.
OK, so it’s not Shakespeare, but it’s pretty engaging stuff, and it looks genuinely worth watching. What do you think?
