In the Dark (2019)
I was looking forward to this show, I imagined a slightly edgier Veronica Mars. And edgier this character is. What puts me off this, is that the actress gives away that she isn't blind in almost every scene she's in. Neither the way she walks is believable nor the way she almost makes eye contact. I don't understand why no one made sure she took acting cues from the blind actress she had scenes with. t's hard to dispense disbelief, when the acting is so unbelievable.
I sure hope the acting improves
I've watched all episodes of the reboot in hope that it will get better and it's just boring. As many other reviewers here, I too was a big fan of the original Charmed. It's one of my go to feel good shows and I was curious to see a modern take on three sisters living together and wrestling with life err demons.
It's hard to believe that this show comes from people
who were involved in Jane the virgin. The first season was surprisingly funny, witty and entertaining. Charmed reboot is none of that. The characters have no great chemistry, the stories are non engaging. Like some reviewer stated the original was about three sisters who happened to be witches and the new
one is about three witches who happen to be sisters.
The original had the sis figure things out about Leo the whitelighter came
into the picture. Here the whitelighter brings the sis together against their will using violence and explains everything to them. I keep watching hoping it'll balance out and become more engaging but it just doesn't.
The original show is not perfect what it did do well was engage the audience in the sisterly bond.
Charmed often rushed their plot when compared to Buffy which aired at the same
time. For me the reboot fails establish a world that I care about, that it took the name and half of the premiss of a show I did like makes it hard for me to engage because I keep waiting for it to match my expectation of the chemistry of the three leads. I don't mind unlikable characters if they are well developed but instead they are rushed and boring.
I WANTED to like it but..
I've been watching HIMYM for years now and was really curious to see this film. But apart from its title which made me even more curious I'm not impressed. The story didn't succeed in keeping my attention. Repeatedly I realized that I was busy with my phone catching up on emails or reading something on IMDb or playing scrabble - at some point I got so annoyed with the background jabbering (movie) that I turned it off. So in short I was so bored that I didn't even make it through the movie. The characters are just boring, we've seen their problems already so often. The colors of the film were boring, the camera was sometimes interesting but not interesting enough for me to be able to ignore the script. Judging from the official reviews and being the same age as Josh Radnor I thought this would be a movie that I could relate to but no.
It's too bad because like I said before I was really excited to see it.
wow really amazing offbeat series
this is my first review, i liked this series so much that i dare to say something about it. the first thing that comes to my mind is: too bad it was canceled so early. i think not many people are ready to watch a show like this. the cast was very strong and the different characters were very well written in my opinion. many parts of the story had a real feel to it. for me it seemed that the weird detective character was used as a tool to push the story along and also as a way to see how people can be damaged from losing an important person in their life and never getting a chance to work through the pain. i loved watching this series and wish they would have given it a proper ending even in form of a comic or a graphic novel. i would also be happy with a note from the creator on how the show would have progressed. all in all i am glad for what i have seen and got out of it. the show made me cry a little and laugh a little. i tried not to get too emotionally involved since i knew it was canceled by the time i started watching it. this series could be for you, if you liked (the first season of) dead like me.
