Any fans of the show? anyone watching season 2?
I thought season 1 was really good. Yeah the show is probably aimed at an audience younger than me and it is a tad cheesy and goes down the sex sells path (so many attractive and fit people in the show, girls kissing girls, two girls fighting over one guy, etc) But i like it.
Guess i've always liked stuff with magic and demons and swords and castles and that. I guess the show is set in a medi evil era/theme but has modern music and vocabulary.

Anyways, what ya's thinking of season two so far?
So far i dont like it as much as i liked season 1, but it is still entertaining. Lots of new characters in this season. Seems a bit more violent than i remembered also.
I was actually amazed at how white the cast was in season 1, even with it being set in that medi evil/fantasy era/theme with knights, castles, elves, etc, you'd expect that would be the case.
In season two this is no longer the case. The cast is now extremely diverse. Whether that has anything to do or not with back lash or that that is just the thing now i cannot say?
I have not read the books either.
I really miss the beautiful girl from season 1, the one who turned into a tree

It seems a bit cheesier now. The new enemy/threat doesn't seem as cool as in the first season. IMO. Some of the new characters are cool.
I'll give you one spoiler, the elf guy ah i mean half elf guy, the main character cut his hair.

It's a decent show. I watched the first 4 or 5 episodes of season 1, and then they either changed the time or day they played the rest and I missed it, so when the new season came around I was pretty lost. So at this point it's on my list of shows to catch up on, but that list grows larger all the time, not sure I'll ever get back to it.
