Spoiler for Hidden:
I guess they really are waiting for the finale to run away.

Don't know about most folks, but I'd be gone if a parent came at me with cybernetic fists of doom.

Chase is an idiot.

Chase has always been an idiot in the comics as well so that's consistent at least?

Most of it was predictable how it would fall into place, but the penultimate episode ended perfectly, I think.

Spoiler for Hidden:
It doesn't look like any of the parents are being killed, but some of them might not make it past the upcoming battle.

Kinda disappointed Gert gave it up so easily, but... end of the world.

Really hated that last episode.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Not because it was bad but because they are making the parents into good guys.  No, that is not The Pride.  They are villains through and through.  I don't mind the other changes but making the bad guys into sympathetic characters is just plain wrong. And I'm sure they did it because you can't have parents be the bad guys. I don't mind showing some humanity in villains, in fact it makes for a better villain. But this is like Vulture giving up crime the moment he finds out his daughter is dating Spiderman.

Really missed a chance for an Australian accented "clever girl" when Old Lace appeared next to them.

Spoiler for Hidden:
Not too pleased with the parents not being outright baddies, either. I'm also not thrilled that any of the parents survived.
But in general, I'm pleased.

I'm in the same bout about the parents and how they're being portrayed in the series, but overall I thought it had been a really good show.
