    The Marvels

    ★★★½

    I liked the energy in this. The three co-leads do a great job at playing off eachother, I just wish we had more of them together working as a team. Some of the best parts were then on the ship working together to plan and prepare for battle.

I'm definitely pre-disposed to liking stuff like this (points to The Truman Show in my favorites), but I think it has pretty broad appeal. I liked how they portrayed Guy and the other NPCs. I'm glad it only took like 4 or 5 minutes for them to accept "okay we're fake".
