I really wanted to like this show. I loved the trailer, liked the premise well enough. And it starts off very well. But... as in most things hollywood these days, the #Woke Agenda just **HAD** to show it's ugly face. The series actually goes out of the way (takes you out of the immersion) to deliver what can only be described as... emotionless agenda drivel. What could have been a great show trips over its own foot with way too many... "announcements". It's meh at best. #OhWell #MovingOn You know why shows like _**Supernatural**_, _**The Vampire Diaries**_, and even _**The Originals**_ lasted past 1 or 2 seasons? Because they didn't preach morality and attempt to shove an agenda down viewer's throats. They simply told interesting, & compelling stories

Typical Netflix garbage. Starts off with a great premise, then sh*ts the bed. Poorly written. They got so concerned with making left leaning political garbage commentary, they forgot to actually write a good story. Thanks again for nothing, Netflix.

I wasn't overly impressed with the start of the season but there were some aspects that were interesting and I like to give shows a chance as some shows that I have loved started poorly or took me a little while to get into. It took a few episodes of teasing and then the story started to show some promise as I started to enjoy it more... but then it got bogged down with the teen soap opera as the twins negotiated their angsty teenage high school relationships. The high school setting was mainly just there to service various morality messages that only had passing relevance to the core story. Of course these elements will appeal to a certain section of the audience who won't care that none of it is very well told. Issues such as gay acceptance, metoo and some undefined claim of "White privilege" that is levelled against a group of kids whose apparent leader is not even white. If this part of the series wasn't all so self conscious, over drawn and preachy it might have been fine. Surely it is a more positive and effective tool for social change just to present gay characters in a natural way, how does it serve the overall story to belabor it so much. The sexually abusive male was only relevant in his primary interaction with the core cast, the scene where he is outed is completely irrelevant. All of this political rubbish drew attention to other aspects like the prominent strong female characters accounting for the mojority of the more powerful roles and the calculated racial casting. These aspects were for the most part done much better and the actors involved were quite believable in their roles. Finally to the core of the story where their was plenty of promise except there wasn't enough time left to properly flesh it out with more engaging details. The underlying social messages in the main story actually mirror the high school drama in some ways which makes the high school stuff even more redundant. The various "monsters" aren't really explained very well. As is the fashion in many modern shows, the level of the effects available and trust in the audiences willingness to swallow anything that looks cool dictates how powerful a characters power might be from one scene to the next... in one scene they can kill a team of enemy combatants then in the next they are suddenly too slow. The only hope for the show is that they feel they have set up the young characters storylines well enough and can now concentrate more on the main story... but I doubt it.

Interesting premise plus very unlikable characters. Hire some adult writers for next season.

Gave it a shot and watched somewhere into episode 3. That's where I decided this is not worth it. The setup of the show is showing you whatever you do not want to see after reading the premise. It's bland, boring and all over the place with way too much social commentary and a deliberate attempt at being inclusive in terms of the cast. But falls flat on the writing in the process, making any story to unfold impossible. Nothing ever happens that is of interest. This is one of the shows where the homosexuality of a character isn't something organically established but more so the center piece of that person's character and personality. Having a gay character just to have a gay character in this to appear progressive and modern. Sadly, it's just a run of the mill token-gay character. There are a few glimpses of the premise here and there sprinkled in but none of that makes any sense. The show is trying to setup a mystery after mystery to keep you watching but it never gives answers or enough information for you to hold onto until the big answers are coming. The acting is atrocius. The kids in this have no experience in acting as it seems, Taylor is terrible at it and MacKenzie is only in for the paycheck and has no charisma on screen. Not to forget there's no chemistry between Taylor and MacKenzie at all. The attempts at humour are cringeworthy. Nothing in this show fits.

The first episode had some promise. Then the show just got dumber and dumber. Don’t waste your time. It’s just one half baked plotpoint after another with ridiculous character motivations.

Get's better after first few episodes. IF you like monster fantasy and snappy dialogue then you will probably like this. I like how the kids fight with the parents and you wonder at times who the real monsters are - though the monsters/special effects are B-movie and the horror slight. To be fair, this compares to recent seasons of Supernatural so if ytou are familiar with Sam and Dean then you will feel at home here. However, if you are uncomfortable watching opinionated dialogue and gay/minority characters then you should avoid this (and probs consider cancelling that Netflix/rw subscription).

wow, shocked at how boring this show was!!! Monster fighting is few and far between and when there is a fight is the ease of killing the monsters is ridiculous. The twins drama being lames out school didn't make sense and also wasn't interesting.

When in a 10 episode season 5 episodes are the beginning... you're doing sth wrong. Only the luck of having whole season premiere at once kept me watching. Even then, when from "how is it fucking possible that two hot twins who traveled the world, have best grades and are descendants of the richest family in town, are the weirdos and hated losers in the school?!" I went to thinking "this (the history of the twins) is a cool idea", I reached the ending and there was no hope. [spoiler] The finale has so much potential but the escape from everything has like 2 mins of screen time?! Everything isn't even mentioned. You just see everyone okay at the end. [/spoiler] Seriously, Netflix definitely has money to make at least one or two scenes of twin-magic not only red eyes with veins borrowed from vampires of The Vampire Diaries. However, i'll probably see the next season, hoping for sth better than again, half 'how the fuck it makes sense' and half wasted potential.

After watching the whole thing I can say, that it was actually quite enjoyable in the end. Sadly like with so many Netflix shows they started with 5s of enjoyment, followed by 7 Episodes of boredom only to have everything interesting happen in the last Episodes. This is why I can only give it a 6/10 - man were the first episodes a snoozefest...
