This week I have watched a new Netflix series!
It’s called The Innocents – a story about “Runaway teen lovers June and Harry that find themselves swept up in a dangerous and confusing new world when June begins to display mysterious abilities.”
The Innocents has a 6.2 IMDb rating, maybe a bit low in my opinion.
I guess there’s a few cliche moments, but there’s also nice surprising moments.
I watched all episodes in one day but I may say some of them I was looking away because they’re “more of the same” and didn’t add much to the show.
Sure, in this type of tv shows there’s always that time when they’re scared and need to learn how to deal with it but they’re not that interesting situations besides one or two.
There’s also a few characters that should have had more screen time but I guess in the last 2 or 3 episodes you can see a bit more of them.
It’s one of those you watch it good but doesn’t make you necessarily wanna watch it besides first episode and last 3 episodes.
Specially the last 2.. finally something! It answers a lot of questions but it will also give some more.
The story is a bit similar to Cloak and Dagger (read my post about it here)
I guess it’s being a trend to have more mixed races as a main character which in my opinion is amazing (should have been sooner).
At the same time is also similar to Stranger Things because there’s definitely not only the sci-fi but also has some “vibes” from it.
Maybe with a bit of Jane from The Bold Type.
The videography is really cool, the music, the actors that need some skills to do some stuff they did (you’ll see what I mean).
Overall It’s a nice show I’ll give it a 7/10. Not one of my favorites but if you like sci-fi give it a go!
The first season is already all out. Here’s the Trailer:
