Captain Laserhawk A Blood Dragon Remix Complete S01 720p WEB-DL x265
The show has its good moments. Action and plot twists are a delight to watch. The show has strong positives in world-building and character development. I hope the pacing will be more streamlined in the future and not a random "plug a bit of everything" as it seems in the first season. The follow-up seasons (if happen) definitely deserve a chance to be better than the first one, given the show solidifies what it wants to be. As for the criticism: Some characters are too out of place, e.g. The leader of the Eden Army is just too comedic and it doesn't fit well into what Eden represents. As a person who recognized probably all the Ubisoft characters in the series and did play Far Cry "Blood Dragon", I feel the addition of many was often too stretched and unnecessary. I heavily doubt this show will be made canon, so plugging Sam Fisher from Splinter Cell and Assassin's Creed represented by a frog-assassin felt to be just for the sake of cheap fan-grabbing audience, and even there it's done so cheaply that it felt rather repulsive than "a nice touch". It's far more crude that "Arcane" or "Cyberpunk" adaptions of their games. "Nice touch" was a dedsec logo. "Nice touch" was an inter-dimensional species design. Maaaaybe, a name "Pagan Min" of one of the characters. But the rest was obviously made because "we have dead/dying franchises by Ubisoft, let's add them somehow into the show. I don't care how, just do it", and it feels by the viewer. The scenes where the animated characters were turned into humans were on the boring side. I'm not entirely sure what was the purpose of that. Actually, no, I straight up don't get why would they do it at all.
