First Impressions: Netflix’s The Hollow

Today, The Hollow premiered on Netflix. This is a supenatural mystery animation, and I was curious about it, but unfortunately it didn’t delivered, at least on episode one.

The premise is interesting enough: three kids don’t remember who they are, and are confronted with many dangerous mysteries. The story and script are nice. It’s on the animation, dubbing and pacing that it doesn’t do a good job.

The animation feels a little bit strange, unnatural, and reminds me of some older point and click games I’ve used to play on my computer. And also does the dubbing. It may be the animation fault, and not the dubbers, but sometimes it feels like it’s just someone patiently practicing the script. And with this, the pacing gets way too slow, of course.

With the first episode feeling like a pilot, I won’t be continuing the series, unless I read some great reviews praising the series from episode 2 onwards.

The first episode was ok, if not too fun or exciting, at least it was interesting and presented us with the show’s premise.
But the second episode episode goes on without giving us new things. I mean, of course, the main character explains how things work there and everything, but in the end, it only showed that the gambling goes deeper in the m this school, and how there’s a lot of cheating and everything.

Review: Lost in Space (Netflix Original)

Recently Netflix released its new original series: Lost in Space. It’s based on a show that aired in the 60s, about a family that… well… is lost in space. I’ve watched the movie with my parents some years ago, as I was curious after they told me about the original show, and I really enjoyed it. And now, we have a brand new series, a reboot, that has updated visuals, characters and spaceships.
