5 Things ‘World of Winx’ did better than the original series
of Winx was amazing and I’m so looking forward to the second
season. I’m also going to write reviews but for now I just want to
share my opinion on why I think that this spin-off is better than the
actual (current) TV show.
[No real spoilers included, but if you didn’t watch WoW yet and don’t want to read any spoilers, than please don’t continue reading.]
season 4 (which was amazingly written) the plot of the following
seasons had been rather weak. Most of the time there wasn’t even a
real climax and the episodes often felt disconnected or were
repetitive. World of Winx changed this again. With only 13 episodes,
no specialists and no little companions (including Kiko) there was no
filler episode and barely any ‘unnecessary’ scenes. The plot kept
moving with many cliffhangers, an amazing climax and an interesting
season 3, the Winx started to lose their individuality. We barely got
to see character developments and – except for Bloom – their
personalities have gotten more and more shallow. World of Winx
brings back their 'original’ personalities and digs deeper into the
girls’ relationships with each others.
for season 2, Bloom has always been the main character with the most
time on screen and most of the lines (followed by Stella), while Musa
and Tecna barely had anything to do or say (especially in the later
seasons). World of Winx managed to give all of them an about
equal amount of screen-time and lines, even then when one of the Winx
had a main part within a scene/episode. Everyone seemed to be
important and part of the club.
we get to see the Winx using their actual powers again. Bloom’s
attacks are recognizably fire-related, Stella is using her power when
light is needed, Aisha is fighting with water, Flora is always
attacking with plants, Tecna is mainly creating shields and Musa uses
her power of music/sound. But they also use their particular powers
for other things than fighting. We see Musa, Tecna and Flora, for
example, trying to find someone by using sound, technology or the
voice of nature.
are many new secondary characters in World of Winx and they
are all completely different from each other, but still interesting
in their own way. I’m actually looking forward to meet some of them
again in season 2.
You know, I really don’t like that part of the episode. The episode in season five where the boys and girls were giving Tecna and Timmy dating advice.
I know they [the writers] wanted it to be “humorous” but it wasn’t. It got me asking, “how are you guys dating for that long if you’re giving advice like that?”. I was expecting better from Stella specifically. 😒
