I've been blessed with the ability to have seen the first two episodes. It's a fantastic show, and Crystal Reed's Abby Arcane is wonderful.

Ok, very interesting.


Cori,

Wait did you get a TARDIS and didn't tell us?? ;)

Perks of being an entertainment journalist ;) I get screeners for shows sometimes. DC Universe has been very good to me.


The trailers lean on jump scares pretty hard--is the show itself more subtle?

Definitely. A lot of underlying dread along with some jump scares.

Reminds me John Carpenter's The Thing in a good way.


Yeah it has that vibe which is a good way to start with a character that really isn't a super hero in the traditional sense.

Sovereign Court

I thouroughly enjoyed the first episode I must say. And I love the use of practical effects wherever possible. These people have a love for what they are doing and it shows.


And... now it's officially cancelled. Apparently over some accounting f!ck up by the state of North Carolina.

To me it reads more like shenanigans on the part of the state that they're chocking up to accounting errors. It's hard to suddenly go from 30M in incentives, to a share of 12M without a bit of shadiness.


NC was always shady to me...


Althought not nearly as much so as SC.

As long as they bring in Matt Ryan as John Constatine, I'm okay with how ever it works.
