  • a fairly good opening episode.

    After a creepy (and quite crappy) introduction by a suit clad Todd Mcfarlane, “Burning Visions” kicks spawn off to a really dark start. The first scene gets a good 3+ on the body counter and we see our mysterious hero (if you can call him that) for the first time. We see how hobos try and befriend him and then are introduced to the shows two main cops (I can’t remember their names, but their not that important). Anyway, the show goes on to basically cover the film’s events and some of the comics’ storyline is introduced. This is a great way to start this show off, as we see the problems our hero faces, adding more human qualities to him, even though he is not that human. The show also addresses issues such as homelessness and government corruption – throw in swearing, violence and 2 dominatrix and you’ve got a fairly good opening episode.moreless
