01:46
as a full review unlike some of the
01:48
other shows we have watched we've saw
01:50
all the episodes so it was only 9 and
01:52
not 13 thank God
01:57
baby Netflix so uh mr. Taylor what do
02:01
you have to say come on Raven Dickey on
02:04
yeah oh yeah I was pretty excited when I
02:07
saw the the trailer for this a couple
02:10
weeks back to my channel
02:12
this looks interesting okay you know
02:15
black boy it was about six or seven I
02:18
guess any eight no he's he's you know
02:23
there's no scar so I was intrigued all
02:25
right it's like we don't have their
02:27
movies like this so I was like yeah I'm
02:30
definitely down for checking this one
02:32
out but I thought it was really I
02:34
thought it was um pretty pretty good
02:36
really really had some really good
02:38
episodes they had some like pretty okay
02:39
episodes it started off a horrible it
02:43
comes yeah it didn't take too long to
02:46
get into the story but it did come by it
02:48
was like a little blank right at the
02:50
beginning on that first episode was it
02:52
started I really enjoyed it um I had a
02:56
lot of good twists in it the acting was
02:58
done that thing was really know well my
03:02
all two actors a little boy he did a lot
03:05
of things he was my son sometimes so I
03:08
was sitting there just laughing like s
03:09
he just like go off and you start
03:11
randomly doing something this is amazing
03:14
how exactly yeah that's my kid but cubed
03:17
or Sam some of that so you know having
03:21
fun just kind of watching the kids
03:23
interact I love the little girl
03:26
Esperanza yes she was like my favorite
03:30
characters I love her little smart mouth
03:32
she was just she just they care she's
03:35
doing what she won't do until you know
03:36
she felt and didn't have no I don't care
03:40
okay we talk about me and hurt my pillow
03:42
so I really and that's my daughter she
03:44
watched the show steals like she was
03:46
really um he felt I guess a new a new
03:51
respect for her almost because like she
03:54
can see like wow her being disabled and
03:56
stuff you know she's this I guess tough
04:00
and this what's the word I'm looking for
04:02
uh Nikki honor so she's just confident
04:06
her so then she didn't really allow
04:08
anybody to bring her down so my daughter
04:10
really like understood oh yeah I'm gonna
04:13
start getting more confident myself it's
04:15
not worried so much with people think oh
04:17
well telling isn't it because I enjoy I
04:23
thought I thought I thought I thought
04:25
the kids at school all of them like felt
04:28
like they were really a school so like a
04:31
lot of times when you watch these type
04:32
movies you see kids acting together they
04:35
don't really be with the graders job
04:36
they need like an adult in there with
04:38
them to act so seeing the kids just have
04:40
their own dialogue throughout the whole
04:43
shows for like most of the whole episode
04:45
I really enjoyed it
04:49
I like know this was produced I believe
04:53
by Michael B Jordan he's a definitely
04:55
one of my you know favorite actors right
04:58
now but watching him since Friday Night
05:00
Lights and the wire so I'll go way back
05:03
but yeah just seeing him and he jumped
05:09
in teacher he comes in but uh I just I
05:12
just enjoyed I thought I did a good job
05:14
he's definitely bringing us a lot of
05:17
blurred tight type stuff so he's a big
05:20
flirt I see I think I didn't know he was
05:22
that big of a clerk and I know he'd like
05:24
watches the ruler a lot of the animes he
05:32
has clothing lines of enemies
05:34
becomes a lot of offense of course he
05:37
was a black panther he had actually has
05:40
his own enemy that's on the Cartoon
05:42
Network
05:43
so yeah he is actually like the Adult
05:47
Swim part across the network yeah he
05:52
does on there too I really watched but
05:55
he loves it so I was I was only
05:59
encouraged by it I wanted to keep going
06:01
the episode is really good it has a lot
06:03
of good surprises and good you'll
06:08
definitely enjoy yes yes I'm all for
06:12
that man they were everything that you
06:14
said man I thought it was really good
06:15
show I think it's a very well-rounded
06:17
show in a lot of ways um there's some
06:20
things that kids will enjoy um I've seen
06:23
a lot of people say that it's more of a
06:25
kid's chill I don't think so I don't
06:27
think it's a good show because there's a
06:28
lot of things that are really pertinent
06:31
to adults particularly when you're
06:32
spending time with the mom and you're
06:34
going through you know her lies and
06:36
what's half
06:37
but I think there's enough things that
06:39
the kids can relate to and things that
06:41
parents can enjoy to get it's
06:44
interesting for people that like sci-fi
06:46
type of things I think it's good for
06:49
people that like more of a story and
06:51
list of the sci-fi but it's a really
06:54
good balance of things you know I think
06:57
the characters are compelling they're
06:58
interesting you know I want to find out
07:00
more about them you know you like
07:02
watching the little twerks of the
07:04
characters one of my favorite things is
07:06
watching Dion and how he reacts with his
07:09
mom and then anytime he's not around his
07:12
mom and he's just talking to like
07:14
Esperanza it's like hilarious could it
07:16
reminds me of me of a kid and how kids
07:19
are because when you become a dope and
07:21
you talk to kids he's talked to you like
07:23
they're done you know like yeah why
07:26
don't you do that I dunno like they just
07:30
right but soon as adults no wait yeah I
07:32
couldn't tell my mom about that because
07:34
you know she was happy for Nate we got a
07:36
protector from Beck exactly I was a kid
07:50
like I talk I talk about friends like
07:54
yeah we roll video so just like you I
07:58
love Esperanza she's definitely my
08:00
favorite character of the show and I can
08:03
relate exactly you don't do what Monica
08:05
is talking about you know I definitely
08:07
like the fact that she is herself you
08:10
know and she is extremely loyal and like
08:14
I said she's herself you know you're not
08:16
gonna let anybody bother her the whole
08:19
story a lot of it is about dealing on
08:22
trying to fit in it was really about
08:24
several characters trying to fit in you
08:27
know but out of all the characters see
08:30
the one that most is confident in
08:34
herself you know I love it because she
08:37
could easily be the one that is the
08:39
least confident in herself but because
08:42
of that you know this is my friend and
08:44
it doesn't matter
08:45
I'm gonna treat him well you know and
08:48
I'm gonna believe in him and if he says
08:50
he likes this thing I'm gonna be excited
08:53
about that type of thing and I'm not
08:55
gonna let anybody else talk oh we talked
08:57
about that's for babies no he likes me I
08:59
like that you know I love that like when
09:01
they were at the party you know the poor
09:03
ended up in Canada
09:18
you know last thing as far as it being
09:21
well rounded it's like everybody gets a
09:24
little piece of something the main
09:25
characters are black let me see here
09:28
again we mentioned Esperanza there's an
09:31
Asian boss in here there's a black
09:33
teacher you know really like you know I
09:36
really like the fact that they put him
09:38
in there particularly since they made a
09:40
big deal about the fact that there's
09:41
only two black kids at the whole school
09:43
so you wouldn't expect there to be a
09:45
black teacher as well
09:46
but there is a black teacher and you
09:48
know he does a really good job
09:50
connecting with his kids you know they
09:53
just really took all the people that are
09:56
kind of left out in a lot of tender
09:59
mainstream movies and TV shows and
10:02
really getting them the opportunity to
10:04
shine and I loved it I was all about it
10:06
so I think this is definitely a show
10:09
that you should watch take your time
10:10
watch it with your kids there's nothing
10:12
else if there's any foul language or you
10:14
know sexuality that if you are more of a
10:17
conservative person you might have some
10:20
issue with a couple characters but
10:23
that's if you're you know if you're a
10:24
conservative person but if you realize
10:26
that we live in 2019 regardless of your
10:29
feelings you know that this stuff is
10:32
just happening how you feel about it
10:35
that is in your face so there it is you
10:39
know it is yummy but you should get
10:45
better get this your watch
10:46
all right it is fine
10:50
the same time time you ready ah all
11:09
right mr. Taylor
11:10
what is your spoiler review oh raison D
11:14
huh okay so I really I like how they
11:21
used I liked how he found out he had
11:23
powers and he acted like what a kid will
11:26
at like once he had powers like he
11:29
started Isis making stuff been around
11:31
and I like how he did not have control
11:33
of his compactness powers
11:35
so basically going throughout the whole
11:37
Muslim show like having him learn how to
11:41
control his powers and the lot of the
11:45
Star Wars references and comic books and
11:48
I'm like what is a God father's man Pat
11:54
yeah like a peck comes in and he's like
11:57
this support role cause you know we know
11:59
Michael B Jordan he dies early I guess
12:04
he dives in you know past vision so
12:06
mm-hmm know what happens to helm until
12:08
later on by like I like how they they
12:12
basically he and we kept pretty simple
12:15
you know he had some things him moving
12:18
to stuff and then him getting the power
12:19
to kid getting powers and then like
12:21
everybody learning about and I felt
12:26
everything flowed really well I thought
12:28
I thought it looked at you I know
12:29
everything you look too cheesy cuz
12:31
sometimes someone shows is a yahoo with
12:33
sci-fi most some things are pretty good
12:36
pretty good money in there stuff like CW
12:40
sometimes they look like corny with some
12:42
of their special effects I thought I did
12:44
pretty good here it was better being on
12:47
see you tomorrow right - you were you
12:50
all over that show that movie oh yeah
12:53
yeah yeah now special effects it's
12:55
horrible
12:55
yeah yeah I like to do it
13:01
just touch this lamp stop me stop but um
13:06
uh what was Radeon it's just I guess you
13:12
just have so many different characters a
13:13
dip we could know everybody had a
13:16
character that you keep running to
13:17
Nikolas so and they didn't spend so much
13:21
time on one or two particular characters
13:23
like guess the mom and the son had the
13:25
most of time but you saw Pat he saw her
13:29
sister we saw the other kids at school
13:32
you know you saw it's the father and the
13:38
ball easy I saw a little bit of
13:40
everybody the whole stuff so it kept me
13:43
interested in the whole series it was
13:46
fun even when I first started watching
13:47
that I thought it was just a movie so I
13:50
was like still when I was starting to
13:51
get into uh all getting good cuz you
13:53
know it's like it's been like 45 minutes
13:55
okay well good or no sorry about to be
13:57
really good oh just the theory I was
14:00
like yes sounds like this is a series
14:05
yes I can watch like 8 9 10 episodes I
14:08
was excited so yeah that was kind of
14:12
like I read all to the movie like two
14:14
hour movie and I figured everyone just
14:17
cram everything into the last hour and a
14:19
half but yeah Frank yes
14:25
yo you boys quick cram I really just let
14:32
me lose there and I had me like
14:34
completely turned over with Pat like the
14:37
way they brought him in from they did a
14:39
great job like they brought him in like
14:41
the little Duke goofy you know outsider
14:43
guidance a little thrilled kids but he
14:45
already got my girl and you know he was
14:48
friends with a dad and everything but
14:50
he's like they're helping support his
14:52
guys on the stuff he ain't seeing the
14:55
whole relationship growing playing games
14:56
with have everybody's caught him like a
14:58
kid on top and then we find out at the
15:00
end of the door he's the first that's
15:02
been telling everybody the whole ring
15:05
yes daddy we should told me he was gonna
15:08
be
15:09
I'm like only gain I did not see that
15:12
coming so that was like when I say it
15:14
like it's probably that was a surprise
15:18
even though even though why even the
15:21
mall just like you killed you killed my
15:28
husband like yeah
15:29
I didn't mean to I told him tell me what
15:32
he was going and I was like well that
15:37
was pretty good that I really thought an
15:41
asian chick was the bad guy like the
15:44
whole time I thought Sudan had some hope
15:47
but he actually you know release right
15:49
now she's not the main bad guy so right
15:53
so I like how I love a lot of open doors
15:56
for theories and future episodes and
16:00
future seasons on how they can take this
16:02
they kind of love me kind of like
16:04
stranger things like on the first season
16:07
you had the demigod jogging in the world
16:10
of things called he was the bad guy and
16:12
once they stopped today finally always a
16:14
whole world that's trying to you know
16:16
take over and then that said she'll for
16:19
the next season so like here's like oh
16:20
now we know there's a supernatural being
16:23
that's trying to kill all the rest of
16:25
the people that got affected and they
16:27
can take their power so yeah I enjoyed I
16:30
can't say I watch the hair watch Dixon
16:33
this step so straight one night and then
16:36
I just finish the last two up today so
16:39
yeah it was it goes good watched a lot
16:41
of stuff haka top rock just try can't
16:43
remember it's a great great show to meet
16:46
thought was really well done
16:48
good job Michael B and the crew who
16:50
helped Netflix
16:52
what does you once again yes sir I am in
16:56
a hundred percent agreement that's why
16:58
we gotta find some more stuff that we
16:59
disagree on we're right on room locked
17:04
in I gotta find so to be contrarian with
17:06
you on yeah man um
17:10
episode 7 is the best one me tell you if
17:13
you are watching this show and you think
17:15
it's a little bit boring or maybe you're
17:17
not into it
17:18
just make it to episode 7 then when you
17:22
see Pat Wright John did not see that
17:26
coming
17:26
y'all who walks the show you know I
17:28
figured these things out I've seen so
17:30
many movies I'm like oh that's such a
17:33
sir that's him that's it I had no
17:35
clothes not that I had one thing one
17:38
piece of evidence and the only thing I
17:40
can say that I thought that Pat maybe
17:42
had ours too
17:43
because he kept getting those migrants
17:45
you know something's happening with the
17:48
migrants that that means something but
17:50
him being the crooked man no no not a
17:53
clue yeah they keep bringing up this guy
17:59
they've lost so the Asian lady what's
18:02
the name Suzanne I think there's a name
18:05
I feel listening don't let it yeah we're
18:08
gonna call her Suzanne right now yes she
18:10
has this assistant that she's always
18:12
like loris give me this Lawrence give me
18:14
that and like Lauren is always looking
18:16
at he does okay something like Laura's
18:21
he must be got you know he's that best
18:23
yeah that's the guy right there
18:24
Lawrence can reveal himself look at what
18:29
great and you know I really love the
18:33
city the development of Deon powers it's
18:36
they're doing in a really good way like
18:38
you said he doesn't control him at all
18:40
and then he just had he spurts work he
18:44
shows you the next thing that he can do
18:45
you like women he learn to just take
18:49
these balls of energy like oh you can do
18:53
that now to it this teleport turn
18:56
invisible and but in the same token he's
18:58
still a kid so he's my training with the
19:00
lady was he shocking to me which is
19:11
interesting I guess that acts there was
19:13
actually no payoff in that part because
19:16
he never uses them he never uses the
19:18
invisibility like I don't know if
19:21
problem if the
19:23
I can see them when they're invisible or
19:24
not but he never uses it anyway so it
19:27
kind of yeah now that I think about it
19:30
that was probably a little bit of
19:31
problem with the writing because you
19:32
don't want to introduce something that
19:34
much time doing it any time teaching him
19:38
how to be invisible only for him to
19:40
never use it any other time in the rest
19:42
of the show you know particularly said
19:44
the lady died you know so if he do that
19:46
if he does it in season two it won't
19:49
really mean anything
19:50
versus it being somehow connected to him
19:54
you know to her dying and him being able
19:57
to transcend that depth and being able
19:59
to come in invisible so that may be
20:01
something that they missed but other
20:03
than that I think the writing is pretty
20:05
good at for historians concerned again I
20:09
like the fact that this so many
20:11
different characters and I love how the
20:13
Pat and the Asian boss switch characters
20:16
could be definite think Suzanne is the
20:18
bad guy um I only have a couple of
20:21
dislikes really this is actually only
20:23
the same dislike and I could see how
20:25
certain people are gonna dislike this
20:28
show and you guys probably wouldn't
20:30
think I would feel this way based off of
20:32
what I just said about the Joker my
20:35
thing is that I'm an equal-opportunity
20:36
person I believe believe in equality for
20:39
everybody so my only dislike in this
20:41
show is that every single white male
20:45
character in this show is a bad guy at
20:48
some point every single one Pat is the
20:51
main villain right all right
20:54
there's a white male teacher he's a
20:56
racist yeah yeah Jonathan is the main
21:02
kid initially the main villain kid
21:05
initially now he turns around and get
21:07
themselves together which I'm like that
21:09
a lot I like it reminds me of my mom
21:11
being a fourth grade teacher and being
21:13
able to deal with the difficult kids and
21:15
sometimes if you can reach them they can
21:18
get out of that I really like seeing
21:20
that transformation of Jonathan he just
21:22
needed somebody to believe in him and to
21:23
get around the bright people and stop
21:25
trying to fit in with the bad kids so I
21:27
like that but he still was the what the
21:30
main villain initially and even the
21:32
little white boy at the end they're only
21:35
white
21:43
we're doing one your daddy just got
21:49
killed and then the lady won't help you
21:52
shit now that that was kind of funny to
21:54
me tiptoes like it kind of felt like cuz
21:57
I'll guess I'm just gonna say it was a
22:00
white woman telling the white boy that
22:02
she can't help him because you gotta
22:03
help black shit I can't help you you
22:08
believe you're oh I got the eye
22:11
what are you gonna go see Dina take me
22:13
to you don't want to help me like my
22:15
daddy got it daddy died in the same
22:18
situation here
22:20
he got powers why do I gotta stay here I
22:24
only like the whole movie
22:35
[Music]
22:39
Wow and speaking of her character I
22:42
forget with her name this right now
22:44
because again a little small problem
22:47
with the reigning after she died they
22:50
never even said her name again I don't
22:54
even know everything that one took not
23:00
one time not once Beckett did they say
23:04
even say her name she said Oh Pat he's
23:07
the one he killed more literally
23:16
murdered a girl right in front of you in
23:18
your face and it is and they are noser
23:21
trained with her to fight return see
23:24
then you know what Charlie she can still
23:26
stay with the white boy exactly but
23:37
anyway um yeah I think this is a great
23:39
watch I guess real quick oh so she goes
23:43
one now the way they got rid of the
23:46
leash dude I was like okay I kind of
23:50
like cuz yeah you found yeah you science
23:53
but I go get a pole she just like runs
23:55
into the Lightning field like just
23:57
sticks and metal full of it like me like
24:00
like no I'm like you're sticking a metal
24:03
pole and like me right
24:07
yeah that's not I'm like yeah like how
24:10
are you doing that um I could see it
24:12
like if they found something to throw it
24:14
at him and it got in there and then they
24:15
they had them shock it but like yeah I
24:18
mean you're throwing lightning I was
24:20
gonna get in that you're fucking dying
24:22
but so yeah that part yeah here the last
24:28
episode be honest did it kind of it
24:32
wasn't bad but it definitely you know
24:34
nor from episode 7 it went down a little
24:38
bit you know because you got that part
24:40
she definitely should have been killed
24:41
and then um you get the whole thing with
24:44
them making this big thing that's gonna
24:46
kill the storm
24:47
so you're thinking okay these kids have
24:50
come up something come up with something
24:51
that's actually gonna do something they
24:53
spent a lot of time talking about this
24:56
project the storm killer the name of the
24:59
episode is the storm killer and then he
25:02
comes out with this little something it
25:07
did nothing go hard go hard right and
25:16
then on what else happened during that
25:19
misty here I was something else it's
25:21
kind of like yeah the riding could have
25:23
been a little bit better right over
25:25
there and then in that end you know but
25:28
you know overall it doesn't take away
25:30
from the whole it's not bad enough that
25:31
it just ruins it for you right Game of
