Percy Jackson and the Olympians (2023) Season 1 – Series Review

Friendly Review : Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Hey there! I totally understand your disappointment with the series. It’s always tough when something you were excited about doesn’t quite live up to expectations.

It’s interesting that you mentioned the actors not looking like how they were described in the books. I agree with you that capturing the essence and personality of the characters is more important than their appearance. But it sounds like the child actors didn’t have the best material to work with. Poor screenwriting, directing, and strange editing choices can really affect the overall quality of a show.

And those dark screen transitions? I totally get what you mean! It does feel a bit outdated and jarring, especially when there could have been more creative options. It’s surprising that professionals at Disney didn’t come up with something more sophisticated.

As for those odd scenes that deviate from the book, I can see how that can be frustrating. Even if you’re not a purist, it’s always nice when adaptations stay true to the source material. It’s a shame when those scenes don’t add anything meaningful to the story and end up feeling like a waste of time.

Hopefully, the series will improve as it goes on, or maybe you’ll find solace in revisiting the books. Let me know if there’s anything else you’d like to chat about! 😊

Hey there! So, you want me to help you make your paragraph even friendlier, right? Well, let’s give it a shot! πŸ˜„πŸ“

I totally get what you’re saying about the series feeling rushed. Even though I haven’t read the books myself, it was pretty evident. The actors did a decent job, and the effects and overall look of the series were on point. But I agree, it left us wanting more!

It would’ve been awesome if the series had a few more episodes to dive deeper into the details, build the world, and really raise the stakes. That way, we could’ve gotten to know what’s at stake and feel more connected to the story. But hey, books are always better, right? I’m glad you’re planning to read the series now to see what you missed!

It’s interesting to hear that your wife and daughter enjoyed the series overall, but were a bit let down by how thin it felt. I guess it’s one of those cases where reading the books might give you a more fulfilling experience. Let me know how you find them once you dive in!

Keep me posted on your reading adventures, and if you come across any other cool series or books, I’d love to hear about them! πŸ“šπŸ˜Š
