LOL. I was watching Hulu earlier and this cringeworthy ad came on and I thought it would be for some shitty low budget teen drama with powers hulu was doing...then slowly realized it was a trailer for The Runaways.

At the end of the trailer it was splashing what I assume were meant to be positive reviews at the bottom of the screen. One was "The O.C. with super powers". Yeah, I can't tell if that is meant to attract people or to quietly signal to them not to watch it. I took it as the latter.

The shows looks awful and I do mean looks. I usually don't call out bad special effects, I put up with 10 years of Smallville, but damn...this was just awkward looking.

The show looks like somehow they time travel back to 2006 to film each episode.

I enjoyed the show, they've gone a bit off from the comics but that might make it interesting down the line.

I gave it more of a chance, watched a few eps. So wait, is this show not set in the same universe as the Avengers, Jessica Jones, etc.?

Binged it, the effects still looked cheesy throughout. I will say the show isn't as horrible as the Inhumans.

But does it take place in the same universe as the other marvel movies and tv shows?

I believe so.

I watched the first episode and couldn't get into it. May give it another go sometime.

Captain America kind of has a cameo at least once and there are some mini-series' alongside the Young Avengers. Cloak and Dagger show up a couple of times as well. They mention a few times in the comics about how all the superheroes are in NY and they're basically all the west coast has to offer.

Oh okay, I didn't see any of the mini series stuff.

I agree that it was better than Inhumans, but that's not saying much. I'd rather dance barefoot on Lego than have to rewatch that crap.

I am genuinely surprised that this got renewed for a second season.

I'm not shocked, mostly cuz I've seen Hulu renew shittier shows.

But if this takes place in the MCU I don't see why they had to make the staff technology instead of magic. Magic exists.

Also doesn't Alex seem redundant? Chase seems to also be a genius, but also useful in a fight.

Chase is basically a typical jock type in the comics, on the show it's like he has a natural gift in certain areas, Alex comes off as more of a chess player which are usually good characters to watch so I'm hoping they show that off more next season.
