It’s good

There is a lot of blood, death, depression and some scenes with girls in underwear/bikinis. If your fine with that, it was a good show with good action.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1):
Kids say (4):

This violent series offers a mythical fantasy world filled with an array of characters and multiple storylines that are both dark and dramatic. However, there are so many of them packed into each episode that it's often convoluted and hard to follow.

Some folks will be drawn into the mysterious worlds that emerge as the narratives unfold. But thanks to the weak writing, many will find that there's just too much going on to fully commit to it. All in all, B: The Beginning leaves you feeling more frustrated than entertained.
