OK so I just finished the entire season and it makes me very sad to see no comments here. Basically the show is like Kick Ass, but for the college crowd. One of the reasons I like it is it has a comic book show feel, but with issues and villains that I can actually identify with. It's way easier for me to connect with a show about vigilantes trying to battle rape culture on a college campus than it is for me to watch something like Daredevil (Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy Daredevil). And to see a show represent exactly what we've seen in the news this year with white college athletes getting off easy for overt sexual assault, to show not only how many women deal with sexual assault on college campuses AND to also address the institutionalized rape culture (the President of the school AND the DA refusing to punish rapists) it's really impressive. Impressive enough that I will forgive the show for its flaws.

I really hope so other people give it a chance because it's definitely worthwhile.

I'm halfway through it, and loving it as well!

So, so many bits, but here's my one of my favorite bits - how they will not explain how the scarf changes the voice.

I figure it's the same technology the Dark Knight uses.

Yeah, sorry for the lack of comments. I was curious about other people's thoughts, but because english is not my first language I'm not that good at expressing my opinions in english.

I came across this EW article and they seem to have a lot of ideas for a possible season 2.

A real shame this didn't get picked up for a second season.
