Cloak and Dagger Cast

The Pilot:

The show starts with our heroes as small children. We learn here how the children are connected and where it all started. You will find that the TV shows origin story differs from the comic book version. A couple of stories are explored here, and I am sure these will be what brings our teenagers together and the basis of season one.

Thoughts:

The story moves at a fairly even pace. We get flashback scenes to fill in areas as needed. Some of these scenes are tough to understand at first but they start to come together. The actors at this point seem to be well engaged into their characters. They do an excellent job convincing you they are real and you begin to feel sorry for them.

The effects for the powers is very well done for a TV show. So far there are no gimmicks to try and push off on the audience. The show creators are not shying away from the violence of the world these two live in. It also includes a brief violent sexual encounter. So beware if you are planning on letting the children watch. There is also some language to be aware of as well.

If the creators can continue in the direction it seems they have chosen, I believe this will be a great show. But if they try to add much more to this season without finishing a few of the story lines they already have in play then it will bog down and it will be short lived. I highly recommend watching this first episode and seeing for yourself.
