I made it through the entire season because the story, a lot like Jumper, is interesting to me. However, the main character, Henry (female), starts off being constantly rude towards everyone and by the end, she has turned it up x10!
I can't stress enough how much Henry being a complete crazy $&@#% ruins this show. She's a lot like a younger blonde Jessica Jones. From not showering, dirty ripped jeans, random let's have sex because life sucks, to that same bitchy/rude I don't care about my friends attitude. Though Jessica Jones being much older, is also much wiser while Henry is as stupid as a bag full of rocks.
I have never cared for evil characters. I am never the one to like the bad guys/girls. However, somehow, Henry being so VERY unlikable, makes me feel very little sympathy for her. Meanwhile, I found myself having a little bit of sympathy for one of the characters that attempts to do something extremely horrible/evil to Henry.
Henry uses EVERYONE and only cares about herself and her issues. She makes that clear, scene after scene after scene. Every other thing she spits out of her mouth, is just horribly selfish. She's truly as cold as ice to HER FAMILY and what few people she has wanting to be her friend.
Early on, Henry gets chased by someone wanting to harm her. She tells the driver to stop the car. Henry knows the person chasing her is angry and coming to hurt her yet she gets out of the car on an isolated road, then tells the driver to go get help as if they don't both have mobile phones. Sure enough, something bad happens to her because of the anove stupid move.
This show spends most of it's time on teenage drama. There is very little development of Henry and her powers.
Then we have the constant smoking of weed by the teens from the very start, and cigarettes by the adults.
There are times throughout the series where any adult can clearly see that the writers tried to apply adult logic to teens reacting to something specific that happens to Henry (not her abilities). In other words, we have teens speaking as if skin puppets controlled by adults with a public service announcement on how teens should feel and deal with the horrible event that happened to Henry.
Yes, I've written a lot about the Henry the main character. That's because she is the show and almost everything that's wrong with the show, is all her.
Seriously, Henry was written and acted as if Jessica Jones was the template. While I was busy hating Henry and her attitude, I was also fixated on her eyebrows!!!! Who the hell thought it was attractive to have this actress with her fake blonde hair and extraordinarily THICK AS BRICKS dark brown eyebrows?!?!?! Once you take notice, and you will, all you think is PLEASE, someone needs to trim those lion brows.
