"Invincible (TV series, Amazon Prime)"


          

ANOTHER superhero series - this one based on the comic by Robert Kirkman.

Ep 1 had a little too much whiny/emo stuff about someone who is expecting powers but doesn't yet have them and is in high school - but by the end of the post credit screen I was intrigued.

Stay for the ENTIRE episode 1 -including post credits- and you might be in for the series.

The Guardians of the Globe are voiced by the cast of the Walking Dead.

More voices by Steven Yeun, Sandra Oh ,J. K. Simmons,Zachary Quinto, Gillian Jacobs, Jason Mantzoukas ,Khary Payton, Walton Goggins, Reginald VelJohnson , Seth Rogen, Mark Hamill and a ton more.

It has a very anime look and feel to it, but it's not terrible.


As a reader of the entire comic, I loved the first 3 eps and they do truncate the story so the show moves quick enough to keep people watching in its 42-60 minute run time.

I don't even want to talk about how amazing the voice talent is for this show.

Show gets a 11.5 out of 10 for me because I've been waiting for Invincible to be adapted and this came through.

Never read the comics but I figured that either the Dad was gonna turn evil or be killed to motivate the son going forward, cause 45 minutes of “when am I gonna get my powers?!” was pretty grating. I still think this might be better with 25-30 min episodes, but I’m intrigued enough to watch through this season at least. The voice cast is very good.

I see Seth Rogen and his boy attached to this as exec producers and I didn't like what they did with Preacher

but the show is different from Preacher, Kirkman was deeply involved with it's creation and you can see that here. I think Rogen and Crew just stuck to the producing side this round

never read the comics, but this show on its own is really really good so far (4 eps in). right now its our 'go to' series.

really diggin it and, in spite of the fact that this 'kind of show/world' has been seen in some other shows before, this one still is fresh in many ways and manages to surprise me often.
some really great voice acting going on in it too.

thumbs up over here
