A Strong Start
on 21 December 2012
I'm surprised that nobody else has posted a review yet, but that's why I'm here now I guess. WvA was made as a sort-of replacement for The Sarah Jane Adventures after the wonderful Elisabeth Sladen passed away. The main plot of the show is pretty much in the title, with aliens harvesting the magic from wizards as a kind of energy supply. The series is made up of 6 2-parters, all of which are really well made, even if they all share a few flaws, but it's its first season so it's to be expected. The main characters consist of Tom and Benny, who are likeable enough, but we sometimes have to wonder why they're suddenly such good friends despite the bullying Tom gives Benny at the beginning of the series. The second story of the season 'Grazlax Attacks' is in my opinion the best as it is a nice little monster story that reminds you of movies like 'Gremlins'. The season has an emotional and satisfying last story that promises more in the second season. Overall, I found this first season to be funny, exciting and very entertaining and cannot wait for the next.
