Vampire Reviews | Wednesday The Series

Initially, I went into this series with very low expectations. I've been a long-time fan of Wednesday and even had that as a nickname in my youth. At first, when I heard that anyone other than Christina Ricci was playing Wednesday I was extremely disappointed. But Jenna Ortega brought her A-game and nailed the character completely. I understand them using someone else with the younger storyline of her high school years. I don't want to give away any crucial details as far as the story goes to not spoil it for anyone who hasn't seen it yet. The aesthetic of the show is incredible such glorious dark details. Outfits, characters' hair, and makeup are flawless. 
The only thing that I didn't care for was Gomez and Morticia's portrayal just didn't work for me. I wanted to like then but in the end, their characters were total failures. Raul Julia and Angelica Houston will forever be the definitive Gomez and Morticia in my heart and those are really big shoes to have to fill. The story wasn't super predictable which was refreshing and kept me guessing until the very end. There were also a few key scenes that made me emotional which I found surprising because I have a very hard time getting emotionally invested in tv series anymore, and that was a nice touch. I highly recommend giving the show a chance especially considering the show has been renewed for a second season.
