Cloak & Dagger
Brought together by tragic circumstances as children, Tyrone Johnson and Tandy Bowen are set to have an incredible future together, where they will embody light and dark, for the good of mankind.
Pilot episode watched and I have to say I admire the laid back, matter of fact delivery in and around some of the heavier themes. There is something slightly glacial about the proceedings, as if the creators trust the viewers enough to put certain parts of the narrative together by themselves, without a need to sear every detail into our brains so we get it. The two leads are cast well and seemingly natural in their roles, even with the crazy situations they find themselves in they never over act and the supporting cast follow suit, as in no one has irritated me and made me want to reach for the remote control.
With so many Marvel titles and superhero shows now available, we are now in new TV territory where we can afford to be picky with our small screen choices. Any Inhumans type productions are not going to get very far, Gotham is definitely reaching the limits of its artistic creativity, as a multitude of the newer shows have honed our senses into diagnosing what will sustain our enjoyment. If C&D continues the way it has started, I definitely see it going the distance...and this coming from the initially skeptical me.
