Sure its been a year and some change but we're still on season 2. Because.
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is one of my favorite classic stories. And clearly it isn’t just me given the number of adaptations that have been made, from the straightforward to parody to at least one adult film (Don’t ask how I know about that) So I was interested to say the least when I found this series by Waizi2.
No need for a plot recap since this is basically the same story and that’s kind the strength and the weakness of it. On one hand the writing is good and there’s nothing that really annoys me, but on the other hand there’s nothing fresh here either. Dr Jekyll is kind of a douche so his plight doesn’t have any impact. Which kind of makes it pointless since we don’t see much of Hyde’s villainy either. The father/son dynamic is creepy and different but doesn’t really go anywhere.
I can’t be too hard because this isn’t bad at all. But it isn’t amazing either. Short and to the point but suffers a couple typos. ⅗ stars
