Did anyone else binge this yet? I was overall really pleased with it. Decent special effects, good cast, and I think 9 episodes was the right length. I hope that if they get renewed Netflix commits to it though - this seems like the kind of show that is always going to end on a 'to be continued' kind of note unless they know ahead of time that they're doing a series finale rather than a season finale.

Middling decent.. altho the greatest crime of it's writing is that, just like Lost, they bring up mysteries and leads in the earliest part that they clearly have no interest in following up on. Like... just who ARE the Fart Police?

Graded in a vacuum, with no context, I'd give it a C+. However, it doesn't exist in a vacuum. It exists in a world inundated with superhero stories and chooses a unique path completely distinct from the normal tropes and pacing. It has a younger hero than we normally get and portrays him respectably well for his age. And it gives consideration to how his mom copes. And takes time to consider how being black has an effect on his story and his mom's. And finally, it's family friendly in a world where so little is family friendly.

So we are liking it a fair bit in our house.

Finally finished the season last night and i want more!

The idea of a hero coming into his powers at such a young age is really interesting, and a single mother who has to deal with all that without having powers herself makes for such a great character to watch.
