Jinn: Jinn Season 1, Complete Season
June 15, 2019 10:08 AM - Season 1 (Full Season) - Subscribe

I watched the first episode on Thursday night, switched to Jessica Jones S3e1 yesterday to get that thread started, but came back to finish Jinn this morning.

I liked the look of the show - having only ever seen that part of Petra featured in Indiana Jones, getting to see all the beautiful arial shots of the landscape and other structures was really neat. But the pacing is pretty uneven - I didn't feel like there was a good balance between the supernatural plot and the teen relationship dramatics, it just kinda lurched back and forth between them, and then the ending is pretty abrupt & cliff-hanger-y. And I don't know that a season 2 is all that likely if Jordanian officials are so upset with the show's portrayal of teens drinking & fooling around that they're trying to get it banned from Arabic Netflix - at the very least, it seems supremely unlikely that they'll let the production film on-location in Petra again.

By chance, I've just watched episode one. And I loved it. It's unfamiliar yet the teens are realistic - awkward, self-obsessed and not very wise. I'll watch the rest (only 5 episodes! So much easier than the 20 typical of Korean series!)
Ima finish the series and report back but so far it's refreshing.
