Spoiler-Free Review of “Warrior Nun” Season Two on Netflix: Our New Chosen One faces an apocalypse…

*This is a spoiler-free review for season two so feel free to read on!*

“In this life or the next…”

Warrior Nun season two premiered on Netflix on November 10th 2022 with all eight episodes available to stream now. The fantasy-action series stars Alba Baptista, Kristina Tonteri-Young, Toya Turner, and Lorena Andrea. Each episode runs for approximately 42-50 minutes.

Ava and Beatrice return to bring down a self-proclaimed prophet as they wind up caught in another battle between good and evil.

Here is the trailer:

Warrior Nun season two is jam-packed with action, making this a solid season to indulge in. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Our chosen one is a lot more sure of herself this time around…

Sure, the annoying voice-over narration is still there, but I think that season two did a much better job of fleshing out Ava’s character. There was a lot of indecision and some whiny complaints in the first season that rubbed me the wrong way. Season two gives Ava a much better journey and I liked her character a lot more because of it.

Better pacing for season two.

Even though I enjoyed season one, many parts dragged and the pacing needed some serious work. Well, season two improved on this drastically. It was fast-paced and filled with bloody action scenes that were truly fantastic. The character dynamics were better as well and the series put forth an interesting mix of religious and scientific components to give us an intriguing plot to invest our time in.

The Cons:

Starts out in a weird way…

After that cliffhanger at the end of season one, I was expecting things to start off with a bang, but instead we got a time jump two months into the future. I didn’t get the answers I wanted and things started off a little disjointed and confusing for me personally. I definitely recommend watching the recap before you start season two because I needed a refresher to keep up.

Even though I enjoyed season two more than the first one, things still played out in a predictable way (although we did get a few fun twists).

This show is enjoyable, but I want it to do even more to stand out from some of the other fantasy shows so that it gets the attention it deserves.

So am I in or out?

I’m in about 75 percent…

This series made a lot of improvements and held my attention for the most part, but I still am looking for more of a unique spark to set it apart from other series with a similar premise. I think we can get there though!

Spoiler-Free Review of “The Wheel of Time” on Prime Video: Lord of the Rings-esque Fantasy is actually pretty Addicting

*This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!*

“The world is broken…”

The Wheel of Time premiered on November 19th 2021 on Prime Video. There will be eight episodes in total. The first three are available to stream now and the remaining ones will air weekly. The fantasy action series stars Rosamund Pike, Madeleine Madden, Josha Stradowski, Barney Harris, Zoe Robins and Marcus Rutherford. Each episode runs for approximately 55-60 minutes.

A powerful magical woman named Moiraine tracks down a group of five teens, revealing that one of them is destined to become the reincarnation of the Dragon, which could ultimately save or destroy the world.

Here is the trailer:

The Wheel of Time may initially seem like a placeholder for shows like The Witcher and Shadow and Bone, but it manages to find its own identity. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Rosamund Pike lights up the screen.

Even though we get plenty of characters to focus on, Rosamund Pike is the best part of the show. There is a lot of talk about the power of women and she really embodies that completely. More please!

There is potential with some of the other characters as well, which is promising, but I’m all for a strong female lead and so far she is delivering.

Stunning visuals and worthy fight sequences.

The setting and visuals in this show are really so well done. I lost myself within the setting and I thought that it channeled Lord of the Rings in a good way. The fight sequences were actually really great too. I was worried that I was going to fall asleep watching this show and somehow I found myself binge-watching the first three episodes back-to-back.

Each episode has a fantastic ending that will leave you hitting play immediately. I honestly can’t wait to find out what happens next!

The Cons:

The supporting characters need some work…

I didn’t read the book series, but I would like these characters to be fleshed out a lot more. We’ve gotten some glimmers of their purpose and potential, but I need to actually care about what happens to them. I’m hopeful that we will get there within the next few episodes, but I don’t want to gloss over character development because it’s important.

I also think this show could benefit from some well-placed humor here and there. Shows like GOT and The Witcher understood how to lighten up the mood sometimes and even though I was thoroughly entertained with The Wheel of Time, it felt a little heavy at times and some of the dialogue was borderline atrocious.

So am I in or out?

I’m in!

I went into this show thinking I was going to get a Game of Thrones rip-off and instead I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this show. It has a lot going on and it needs some improvements, but so far it has managed to captivate my undivided attention and I can’t wait to find out what happens next!
