With every new episode of the first series this show became more and more involved, important and suspenseful.
In the beginning it had all signs of a soft-core dramedy - there was the big event, now all the crazies are gong to pop out of the woodwork yadda yadda.. But NO, the writers went the way of characterisation and development I haven't seen in a while, certainly not from a supernatural series.
Now, at the end of Season One (and thank God there is going to be Season Two), things are heavy, characters alive, the situation still very much panning out.
This is, as it should be, no Hollywood story; these are normal, actually, f***ed up teenagers now coping not only with the problems of their not-so-perfect lies, but also with this new power thing which, deservedly, is both blessing and a curse.
It is refreshing to see there are no big plans here yet; no spandex, glory, etc. - just honest, hard progression.
The entire series reads like a very good long movie with purpose and excitement.
