Is it shjt?
@Somervillage, I didn't even know it's out until about 2 minutes ago
@Somervillage, I just watched the first episode. Broke canon already since zombies run. Not sure why, but that’s a dealbreaker for me. Just doesn’t feel right. Plot development is starting out ok tho.
@Somervillage, it’s easier to assume it is until proven otherwise nowadays.
@Somervillage, if it's made by Netflix then yes it is.
@Somervillage, if you're a fan of resident evil then the show isn't for you
If you're a fan of zombie movies, then the show also isn't for you.
But if you like mindless fun action stuff, then this show also isn't for you
@Deadkizz, ^ this guy is 100% correct. The first episode starts off ok, if you ignore anything about the Resident Evil game series, then it quickly crashes and burns what little it had running for it. Just more Netflix bullsht.
@Kounat, also they average 10 flashforwards/flashbacks an episode
@Somervillage, it mentions virgin incel as an insult, has one character talk about flicking her bean to Zootopia porn, and made Wesker (a nazi/white supremacist) black
@XeromusPwndCecil, movie wise, didn't they start running in like RE3?
@Swolekage, idk, I thought the fastest they moved was a quick shambling, but I could be wrong. Crows/dogs/lickers were quick. Don’t ever remember them flat out bolting tho.
@XeromusPwndCecil, zombie dogs can move. Lickers can be fast. Crows are more ambush swarmers. Zombies never ran. They were the slow moving bullet sponge type
Pretty bad, they kept saying how they wanted to stay as close to the source material canon as possible to do the game’s story justice, they did the damn opposite
RE fanboy here, it's good. Ok bye.
@blind, I love the idea of Lance Reddick as Wesker. Still haven't watched it though.
@SimonPetrikov, I've never seen him before, he does a good job. Everyone disappointed just wants exactly what the games were. 🤷♂️
the re show is actually a good live action video game adaption, the ones hating so hard on it are the super fanboys that are crying it isn’t an exact 1:1 remake of the game series. which is hilarious in its own right because at least half the games have a terrible story to begin with. they pay plenty of homage to the source material, the characters are all pretty solid, and the plot line is interesting, there’s nothing wrong with it, as a tv show it’s objectively good. also lance reddick is good in pretty much everything he’s in, if you got a problem with him playing wesker cause he’s black you have no brain cells he does a good job with the character.
It killed some time but it was about as good as the third Res movie.
@NerdyGirl69, Something being as good as the Resident Evil movies isn't much of a compliment, but the third one is my favorite, I think. The last time I watched one of those, I rented it from a Blockbuster, so my memory is kind of fuzzy.
It references Zootopia porn so it's already 10/10 for me.
I’m on episode 6 now and things are slowly still piecing together. I hated it the first 2 episodes but starting to like it now. At least with calling out the game references right before they happen
