Well, that answered my question about characters using their powers.  :lol:

So this wasn't quite up to Woodstock and Kaiju, but a Minotaur is pretty cool-- especially with Dali and Hemingway thrown in for good measure. This show is almost completely driven by character interaction.  I loved how Kaya in the Sky-A got the ladies caught up in the spirit of drunken bonhomie.  "You're a witch!" "You're a clone from the future!"  You just don't appreciate yourself until somebody holds you in awe.  :D

^ If you're enjoying the show, you should probably watch episodes 2, 3, & 4 as well.  ;)

4x02: The Salem Witch Trials meet an Evil Fairy Godmother!  :lol:  (We're talking a full Disney style Fairy Godmother, complete with singing!  But evil!!!)  :howling:  Also, the set up for the DOD / Time Bureau connection.

4x03: Introduces Charlie the ex-shapeshifter.  Also, Zari gives Constantine a lesson on the temporal mechanics of interacting with one's personal timeline.  (Including a rather colorful variation on the grandfather paradox.)

4x04: More character driven stuff.  I can say more later, when I have time.


And you shouldn't wait, because ep 4x02 is probably only available for a couple more days!  :o  (Edit: specifically, new episodes air on mondays, and go on-demand on tuesdays.)

So I did manage to see episode 2, and it was pretty good. The Salem Witch Trials are always fun to visit (though I wouldn't want to live there) and the Disney Fair Godmother from Hell was amusing. I'm not sure why, given everything else that's happened, but two people getting turned into swine seemed a bit over the top.  :D

More like the Nickelodeon Fairy Godmother from Hell, since the actress (Jane Carr) is the voice of Mama Cosma on The Fairly OddParents.

I actually thought this ep was a bit overcrowded with too many stories, each one of which could have been expanded and had more time.  Even the Minotaur practically seemed like an afterthought.  But, credit to this crazy show, somehow it totally worked anyway!  :lol:

Clearly the bonding between Nate and his father was at the heart of the episode, and most of the rest was in service to that.  Including the Minotaur, and Hemingway etc.  Charlie vanished for most of the episode, briefly showing up to instantly identify Dali's depiction of the Minotaur.  (That no one else could make heads or tails of. :lol: )  Paris was in the background and barely explored.  The end credits mentioned Django Reinhardt, who was never mentioned but must have been in a scene somewhere.  (Though I did notice some gypsy jazz playing in the club, so I suppose I should have thought to look for him.)

And Charlie & Nate getting acquainted, and Ray & Nora romance progressing, and Ava getting to know Nora and Mona better and loosening up...

Yeah, crowded and insane, but still totally worked!

There were some continuity breaks for the series in this episode, put in purely for plot reasons, and then reversed by the next episode.  I was halfway through writing a post about the tech on this show, for my guide.  But the DOD list of financial expenditures randomly contradicted a bunch of things.  The Waverider has a "fabricator" that can make clothes for any time period, and also all their food.  But suddenly the DOD is paying for both their clothes and condiments?  Plus they recently made a big deal about how none of them get paid any salary, but the Waverider has huge operating expenses?  And then in the next episode Gideon is back to fabricating food.  Oh, and they are also supposed to have universal translators, but here they struggled to speak French.

Anyway, I am left with one very important question:  Was that really Thomas F. Wilson singing?  Because that was really good!  :cool:

Little reminder that ep 4x03 probably disappears at the end of Monday! :oh:  That lesson in temporal mechanics is about to become very relevant (in a different setting).  Also, it showcases how Ray's optimism can be just the thing to save the day, even when it seems like the last thing that is needed.  :)

It really is!

One thing this show does exceptionally well, especially when there are new characters getting to know each other, is put them together in different pairs to explore different interactions.  Often two characters with the most contrast at first, who wind up surprising themselves when they discover what they have in common.  We see this here with the Mona-Ava-Nora interaction.  That is also a big part of ep 4x04, when Constantine and Ray must work together, which turns out really interesting.  Also in that episode, Sara and Ava get more couple time, with Sara helping Ava work through some of her lack of childhood issues.  

The setting?  Monster eats kids at a summer camp!  :freakoutnonny:

I thought that, too. It was basically a McGuffin to drive the plot. Kind of a shame, because Minotaurs are cool.

That's what I always loved about superhero team books when I used to read comics.  All the contrasting personalities.

It made sense to pit the Minotaur against noted bullfighting enthusiast Ernest Hemingway, though. Also, if you're going to have a creature stalking the maze-like catacombs of Paris, who better?
