Dont pay attention to people complaining about it not living up to the book, movie and series adaptations never live up to the books.
However, this series was a huge letdown and waste of time. I wasn't a fan of the main character, he just didn't fit properly... sometimes actors and actresses just dont look the part. This series had a lot of potential but they massively screwed it up, a lot of build up for nothing.... the villain barely used his powers and we never get to see just how much chaos he can cause, the whole build up to the battle is resolved in maybe 2 mins and of course they had to shove a scene in there just because.... it literally served no purpose but to please the lgbt community, there's a right way of writing it into a series or movie instead of just throwing it in there.
Massive letdown.... the trailer was better than the series
