Amazing Extraordinary Writing
Hopefully time has lent my fellow reviewers 10 years worth of perspective; they have somewhat missed the mark! This series doesn't punch below it's weight, nor is it a superhero reboot gone awry (wtf??).
The writing, acting and pacing are of a rare quality, comparable to those classic shows we miss with that pang of nostalgia; more so because of some of the gash currently on offer. The adventures really are well thought out so that the series interconnects, while episodes carry their own weight and identity too.
There's a chemistry here that's difficult to come by, which makes the show's short lifespan kind of understandable - things change quickly and so the magic withers. Some more robust marketing may have extended the show's audience but it's the lack of expectation which helps it exceed expectation x
