This is literally the first post I have seen about this show.

I checked it out. It is kind of a cool concept but I just couldn't get into it.


kappahelpbot2023 t1_j6k5gk2 wrote

Yeah I put this show is more of just having a VERY loud echo-chamber and well targeted "niche" group. The people who like this show heavily fall into they won't shut up about it but the reality is the show was really not all that much watched and from what I have seen had some fairly high immediate drop offs.

It is pretty much a show that corners of twitter and some forms will just be quite dedicated to and miss how truly small it is in the bigger picture.

looked it up and was disappointed it wasn't a Buddhist nun doing Kung Fu like you occasionally see in Shaolin movies


Zeelthor t1_j6masaz wrote

It starts off quite weak, honestly, but does get a lot better towards the end of season 1, and then really quite good for season 2. Buuuut yeah, I can see why people would just kinda go 'meh' and walk away after a few episodes, because it really doesn't start that strong.


mickeyflinn t1_j6mfp6q wrote

Hmm, that is interesting to know, I will revisit it.


Zeelthor t1_j6mjav5 wrote

I quit on episode 4 or 5 the first time around, too.


merpderp33 t1_j6nyngo wrote

Yeah agreed S1 was very meh to me, I stuck it out bc it was released during pandemic and I had nothing but time.

S2 got no promotion but I wanted to follow up, overall it got way better (minus the lack of continuity from finale for a hot minute.)

Better action sequences, pacing, storylines - very enjoyable (and binge-able) watch

I def think it deserves another season after S2.

Only in regards to the greater discussion of "Netflix doesn't cancel successful shows." Being part of the discussion isn't the same thing as being the discussion.

Is it though?


OniExpress t1_j6lfgsa wrote

The show was bad. People just want a topic to be angry with Netflix over.


cooperia t1_j6lyl4k wrote

I watched 3 episodes trying to figure out why people love it so much and then I remembered I'm not 15 and am allowed to have my own opinions. I remain confused as to why folks like it.


OniExpress t1_j6lyrl2 wrote

I watched the whole season, some in for a penny mentality. It's incredibly slow, the dialog is bad, and the story is drip-fed to keep people watching only to end the season on a nothing.

If folks love it, fine, sorry for you that it's cancelled. I just can't see any redeaming qualities to it.

It's the most talked about because the journalist talked about it.

There's thousands of new shows being produced each year, and only the lucky few that have the money to pay journalists for articles will get anywhere. Or ones that are actively being promoted by their streamer service.


im_a_dick_head t1_j6lqxuq wrote

Lmao Netflix did 0 promotion for the show, you are literally just saying completely false information


Locke_Moghan t1_j6n6e11 wrote

I'm not talking about this show. I'm talking about the other they do, like Wednesday and Tiger King. Never would have zoomed up to the top had they not put those shows on a pedestal already.

And then the article campaigns that kept getting posted on Reddit. You could throw a stick and hit some article gushing about Andor or Wednesday.


Orcus424 t1_j6npo7s wrote

No but you can make it seem that way if you pay off reporters.


Defiant63 t1_j6jpzrx wrote

I've heard zero people on the internet talking about Warrior Nun. I watched half the first season, got bored, and haven't gone back. Does this mean it's gotten better?


im_a_dick_head t1_j6lr930 wrote

Season 1 was okay, season 2 was amazing. It's one of those shows where the first season makes a lot of people stop watching just before it finally gets good in season 2.

If it was, the latest Avatar would have only made a buck fifty at the box office and everyone would be laughing Cameron right out of Hollywood. According twitter, that movie was going to bomb.


dragonmp93 t1_j6kntiy wrote

Both Avatars are tech demos for theater screens, there is literally no reason to wait for the home release.

Someone lied to her because she's not


SnoopysAdviser t1_j6jxiyg wrote

It was OK. Season 1 ending was very disappointing, but thankfully there was a season 2. They still never really satisfied the ending of season 1 for me, and season 2 was just OK.

Season 2 did end with some clarity, so it wasnt a total waste. I grew to really dislike the main character, she just would not listen to reason, or do anything she said she would do.

They killed off a great character and then looked like they brought her back, but no it was a VERY similar but different character with no lines.

A lot of weird choices were made by the show, a lot of cool stuff could have been done, but in the end it was terrible choices moving the plot along.

Would not recommend if you get frustrated at stupidity of the main characters.

Some cool moments, and some OK fight scenes.


SteelmanINC t1_j6k47tk wrote

why is it so common nowadays to have main characters that make insanely stupid decisions constantly? like who is enjoying that?


Veiled_Discord t1_j6lq4lv wrote

Because bad writers can't think of ways other than sheer stupidity to move the plot along.

> They killed off a great character and then looked like they brought her back, but no it was a VERY similar but different character with no lines.

I couldn't finish season two. I tried to but stopped half way. I only stuck for so long because I was hoping a certain someone's death had been faked but nothing came about it. Is that who you are talking about? Because she was my favorite character in the first season and I would have watched a whole show of her going around the world with her trusty sidearm hunting down demons.


SnoopysAdviser t1_j6n1mjm wrote

Yes, exactly. I skipped a few episodes in the middle of season 2. You could tell they were just filler. Watched the last two for the finale, which was all that was needed.


dpezpoopsies t1_j6omsng wrote

I read somewhere the actress who played her couldn't come back for season 2, so they had to kill her character. I definitely think the show runner said they did plan to bring her back in the original story line.


inksmudgedhands t1_j6p057z wrote

I wonder if it was because of Covid restrictions her and her being American. I can imagine going back and forth for shooting would make that difficult. Everyone else already lived in Europe or had the very least, a base in Europe.

Never heard of it on whatever side of the internet I’m on. The 3 shows I keep coming across are lots of praise for The Last of Us (rightfully so) and The Sandman and lots of negative takes on Velma.

Man that second season was a massive drop in quality. Didn't even know it got cancelled


im_a_dick_head t1_j6lqtwt wrote

Because the second season has 100% on rotten tomatoes, it's really good, quite possibly a perfect season of a show. The first season unfortunately wasn't as good so not many people stuck around for season 2. The season 2 finale was also SO good, like after watching it I was just in aw for hours...

It seems that this post really hit a nerve in this place.

EDIT: Thanks for proving my point.


Veiled_Discord t1_j6lqokr wrote

Hit what nerve? The post is just wildly inaccurate so people downvoted it using a couple muscles and half a second. You're getting downvoted because you're making that metric out to be an indicator of an emotional response, which is just as asinine as the post itself.


dragonmp93 t1_j6lrrf2 wrote

Well, considering that posts defending Velma hover around 30% upvoted, I thought that it was interesting.
