Review: I don’t know about you but I found the trailers for this show great. I loved the animation style, it looked cinematic, and I loved the voice cast for this. I was even tempted to check out the source material but I was busy and lazy so I didn’t.
Now let me tell you that once I sat to watch this, I didn’t leave my couch until the end of this three episode premiere. I wanted to live tweet it but I soon forgot about that because that’s how into it I was – and I have a lot of things I want to cover today, so pausing and rewinding because of tweets was not an option. I couldn’t turn it off, this show is incredible.
At first it looks and feel like your run of the mill – high quality – superhero show but turns into a complex and exciting series by the end of the pilot episode. I believe that if they’d stopped at that, people would have lost their minds trying to figure out that ending. You don’t know what’s coming. From then on the show gets even better, with the tension building as we go along.
The show goes above and beyond, they’ve created an adult TV Show that stands next to the live action movies of the genre. Not less than, equal at the very least. The world building is amazing and vast, the action and violence is top notch and more grounded than most in the genre. The cast is great and full of amazing actors that are killing it, Steven Yeun, J.K. Simmons, and Sandra Oh to name a few. I can’t believe that no ever took that Robert Kirkman comic and told me “read this b**ch!” I almost feel betrayed.
Invincible is excellent, a must watch, appointment viewing type of series.
