What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I bought into the hype. I gave it my four episode base and i guess I have super hero fatigue. I thought it was good, well shot, interesting story. I just don't want to set aside time for it. Maybe it would be better if it were shorter and there weren't a zillion shows and movies in its genre.

So i came back and started over nearly a year later. It isn't Hero fatigue, it is to much of an untrustable narrative when you have pretty much zero comic background. I seriously couldn't even pick out " professor X " in a line-up. It's really too bad there is a lot of talent here.. great acting.. so beutiful... but no, for me it is to disparate and i am to far removed from the story. Nothing tied me to care about the character or his struggle and after 4 episodes i should care. stopped S1E5.
