So so start
25 September 2016 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Just watched the pilot and it did not kick ass or make me want to see episode 2 immediately. Filming and CGI was OK for a series, though with only little effort it would have looked even better. The Waverider ship design looks terrible, the surface textures seem to come from a ten years old pc game. Costumes are OK to badly done, Atoms armor being the best of all. The writing is simple and neither smart nor very entertaining. I have no idea whether the plot is based on comics (I assume it is), nevertheless it can't be a jewel of comics art writing. The names are awful (Rip Hunter, Vandal Who?), the character design and looks are from the stone age. The dialogues follow the same route - a lot of blah blah (the evil super dork even talks to his foot soldiers about his plans, oh my).

So actually nothing in this show seems to be non-cliché, which is quite boring. Studios and producers don't have the balls to make a show from comics like DV8. All they dare to do is gulp up the next offspring of already running and successful shows that can be shown at 18.00 and don't offend anyone.

Too tame, too botched, too flat.

Edit: OK, I did it and watched episodes 2-4. At least I tried, I had to fast forward a lot to omit terrible lengthy dialogue leading nowhere. This series is awful and so badly done that it's actually an insult. I vote down to 1 star now.

This is just the tip of the iceberg but here are some major flaws from episode 4 (no spoiler intended):

  • The bad guys flees into the Soviet Union, the team has no clue where
exactly he is hiding in that oh so tiny empire made up from some of the largest countries in the entire world - yet the captain orders the ship to take course into the UDSSR and then suddenly without explanation it's Moscow, what else...

The ship falls at a rate of 1000m per second and can still make a flat crash landing without anyone aboard getting injured. We clearly see the ship is not moving vertically when it cuts the engines. That means it's initial velocity is 0. It is shown to fall for about 4-5 seconds only from a height of 5000m, which means it would reach a final speed of about 50m/s ignoring the fact that the air friction and the non-aerodynamical form of the object would slow it even further down. Crashing into the ground with several hundred tons of mass at a speed of let's say 30-40m/s would still not be healthy to ship and crew. But
  • funny - when they reach the surface the engines are on and the ship
is flying horizontally at great speed and still crash landing. We see the ship can easily spiral straight into the sky several times at ease, only this time it can't counter th terrible acceleration of 30 m/s to stabilize it's flight? This is big BS in your face.

Rip Hunter is the most annoying character I have seen in years. Whatever nonsense he utters it always makes him look like a total idiot. He is a Time Master. How did such an immature, unstable and short-sighted man ever become a Time Master?

The glowing handguns that make the wearer a big target while sneaking through the dark forest... and they look like what they are: cheap plastic toy guns. And they have zero reach, too. Yet Snort and his "I always have this sinister expression" friend fire at ranges where they clearly can not hit anything. Doesn't stop them from trying and taking bullets from AK47s as a reward.

Using an audio mixpanel as controls for a pseudo-scientific installation. One that houses a massive radioactive source in a chamber with glass windows. The chamber could at least have been filled with water, but no.

And every episode a lot of talk, talk, talk. Nonsense. Insulting. Miserable.

It got nominated for the Best TV Comic Adapation - this industry is so dumb and rotten.
