The Dragon Prince: Season 1 Reviews
The story is overly bloated and full of padding, even though the series was designed for a binge watch streaming service.
In each slide episode there needless exposition on where the story is, even though you just finished watch the last episode a minute ago. To compound upon it, Netflix added a feature which provides the user with a recap of the story, making the exposition even worse.
Because of This the story moves at a snails pace never allowing it's self to truly progress, making experiencing the series a painful slog for anyone above the age of 13.
The writing is terrible, by four episodes in every hole is some lame pun or joke about a weird word or phrase the one character says to another. This is the majority of the interactions between our main trio, which is tiering when all of them are jokers and none are straight men.
The main villain showed potential to be a nuanced character at the beginning of the series, always having a rational methodology to his seemingly evil plans. This is untill he tasks his children to kill the main trio to retrieve the magucal macguffin for himself, untill the end of the season where he becomes a full generic villain with spooky skin and hollow eyes. A massive departure from the complex antagonists within the last Airbender.
I recommend that anyone that enjoyed the last Airbender avoid this series as they'll just be dissapointed and frustrated by the fifth episode, if not sooner.
