It wasn't bad -- though I feel like nearly every idea in it had already been exploited, better, in seasons 2 and 3 of Orphan Black. Sense8 has a much bigger travel budget, though. It's also just loaded with pandering and clichés, and every sub-plot eventually trudges toward the most obvious-possible happy ending.
And, like Lost, it left me wanting to scream "You incurious motherfuckers!" at the TV multiple times. Because, by all means, never bother to do any experiments to determine the limits of your new superpower when glassy-eyed amazement will do.
I think the moral was, there is no problem you can't solve by punching it.
This was the only thing I appreciated about Chronicle. "Hey, we've got powers! Let's go to a junk yard and see what we can do!" was like half the movie, as it should be.
I thought the moral was that if we could relive our own birth everything would be cool.
I kept falling asleep during E01, so I gave up. I made it a lot further with Tomorrow People. How about Misfits?
I haven't watched either of those. But 01 is definitely the weakest episode (as is traditional).
+1 for Misfits, if only because of the time it takes them to figure out how to use some initially pretty poor powers. Or even to figure out what power they have.
you're right jwz, after watching the series I have no idea what Icelandic girl Riley has to offer to the group (besides being bad luck).
