The previous couple of years have been nice for viewers who take pleasure in standard-issue CW teen dramas (Gossip Lady endlessly!) however need a little bit one thing additional blended in. Bridgerton blends in interval piece aptitude and a Cinemax “Skinemax” pulse, whereas I Am Not Okay With This blends a teen story with darkish supernatural thriller. And remember how Anna and the Apocalypse manages to weave collectively teen drama, Christmas tales, zombies, and musicals (albeit in a movie).
However no present has playfully leveraged genres with a teen narrative at its core as creatively as Invincible, Amazon Prime’s new animated sequence based mostly on the Robert Kirkman comics. The story follows ho-hum highschool no one Mark Grayson doing all the standard stuff: attempting relationships, contemplating his post-graduation future, and coping with overarching household drama. However all that noise solely will get extra sophisticated as a result of Mark occurs to be the son of essentially the most highly effective being within the galaxy, a Superman-like determine referred to as Omni-Man to the world (and Nolan to his household). Teen drama meets a superhero story, which means the man coming of age occurs to be coming into his powers, too.
Invincible wraps its first season this weekend, and Selection reported Amazon has renewed the present for 2 extra seasons already. That is nice information, as a result of it means individuals who love superheroes now have time to catch up. This present could not have “Marvel’s” within the title, however after these eight episodes, I am extraordinarily confused why you’d get your new caped crusader kicks anyplace else.
