Star Trek has been, without doubt, the most famous franchise in the history of TV shows. This series, that was created 51 years ago by Gene Roddenberry & although it stayed on the air for just 3 seasons it instantly became a hit. Gene created some memorable characters that influenced many. Three characters, in particular, would go like no character has gone before & garner an enormous following.
So before I give my take on the new edition to the family of Star Trek that was released on 25 September 2017 on Netflix. I will give a brief overview of the most important three characters in the Star Trek universe.
Narcos is an absolutely brilliant series especially when it had a character like Pablo Escobar. I was waiting for season three like all fans, but not with big expectations since the king of Colombia is dead. If I want to judge on the season from a point of view of a critic, it's been executed brilliantly, but with few minor story loopholes. The fact that Jorge, the head of the security, didn't even have a small pistol, knowing he was part of drug trafficking organization this is a plot slip. Another major setback, for me, was that although it's based on true events, the story was dull when you compare to first two seasons. Story development of the four main characters especially the two godfathers of the Cali Cartel was very quick. It didn't leave room to get us attached to any of the characters like we did with Escobar.
In conclusion, the finale of season three passed away with some disappointing documentary style footage. There was no shocking ending, just your plain dull history recordings. Archive footage from the arrests of the Rodriguez brothers and glimpses of what happened to the other two partners Pacho & Chepe. They started as "bad-ass" to end as another two average dead gangsters.
As a fan of comic heroes and Netflix, The Defenders a show I was anticipating. The idea to join these four heroes, who already have their own series interesting yet not original.Now separately three of the shows are doing well, which are Daredevil, Jessica Jones & Luke Cage. Iron Fist alone not doing well. To be honest Daredevil among the four would stand out as a superhero the rest are average.
As a show, it's not that exciting, since it lacks the momentum & creativity of being superhero cult show. I would like to see them fair without Iron Fist who I feel is holding them back. As a story-line for each episode is beyond boring & feels like Finn Jones(Iron Fist) trying hard to fit in this group & failing miserably. It won't be long till they cancel this series along with Iron Fist & concentrate on the three other shows.
Recently I've been watching this series which looked at the first interesting show. The cast is relatively unknown except for two actors John Rhys-Davis ( Gimli Lord of The Rings) & Manu Bennet (Crixus Spartacus: War of Damned). The idea of the show is interesting but not creative, the creatures from elves to trolls & demons been reflected in various previous shows or movies. The acting is average from the main characters and even the two mentioned actors although they experienced but lacked flair.As for the storyline, there are many loop holes in the structure of the story.In general, if you love fantasy, you might enjoy a bit but as an action adventure, it's boring.
