It’s a soap opera about a town full of vampires and werewolves.
If you’re going to do that, you either have to:
- have silly fun,
- do a really slow build into it ,starting wth the soap opera and teasing the weird stuff in to make it seem real, or
- be damn emotionally accurate, so real about human beings that the biting types are either a context to reflect on humanity, or a clear allegory
This ain’t none of that.
But hey, The Gates has high schoolers who can invent a single-write lie detector that actually works, and who trust it works without rigorous testing.
yuck yuck yuck
