Ton's of Potential: But dissapointing

Content: Sexual Content: None. A few inappropriate comments in each episode. Language (every episode): 6 vain references of deity: "G*d", a few uses of "Sh*t", "A**", and occasional uses of "D*mn" and "H*ll". Violence: Extreme. More than the movies. Punches, explosions, individuals shot in the head... all pointless. Harsh. Substance Abuse (mild): Few drinks throughout. Story: - The overall story followed Sam Wilson & Bucky Barnes through their individual lives and it's interconnecting with their own hero character. It honestly was a cool experience seeing Bucky go through his PTSD and Sam's financial problems. It was an interesting take but nothing that I expected. The ending is a cliché, the characters don't really grow, and the whole show is about Sam being black. I don't care about race, we're all equal. We don't need 30 shows about the same subject.

Language is limited to a few uses of "hell," "damn," and one "s--t." Insults like "good-for-nothing," "nobody," "shrimp," "jerk," and "idiot."
