Okay, so I finally got around to checking out Wynonna Earp . . .
And it’s not half bad after the first ep, and I can see myself coming to really like the cast/characters, but it hits some things that just … bug me.
1) It uses the “Only X Can Kill Y!” when X is a single item. it’s just … It makes things harder in thelong run to be creative about things.
2) The Monster Design … While not AS BAD as what Supernatural does with its demons, it’s close. They have a cool mark of glowing hellfire on their heads that is pretty cool, and the eye effect is smuch better, but … it’s still just basic makeup. With one exception, one of the revenants had super sharp shark teeth. You can tell how starved I am for good prosthetic FX that this is something that catches my interest.
Still, I wish it were more.
Maybe it’s because I was raised on a steady diet of Tokusatsu, Buffy, and Harryhausen Movies, but I have really high standards for creature designs.
So, fans of the show, tell me, any improvement on those two fronts?
