Winona Earp, the First Season: Should I Keep Watching this?

Spoiler alert. I will write a rundown of the first episode to some extent (not everything) so get ready for it if you read this short review though I try to keep it as little as possibly can.
Ok. I watched episode 1. Yup, ‘that’ Earp family. In this drama, the oldest heir of the Wyatt family inherits some kind of ‘special’ abilities and this Wynona is great… (sorry I forgot how many great she said when she referred to her ancestor) grand daughter of Wyatt Earp. She will use a “big-ass” gun, a.k.a. “Peacemaker,” to fight the demons, or according to her, revenants, who (which) loiter around the small town called Purgatory (reminds me of Dante!) and murder people. From the first episode, I wasn’t able to get why they were doing it. Oh, she also has a couple of sidekicks or partners who get her back. One is her sister. She is not the oldest sibling so she doesn’t have that ability to take out the revenants but she is more fired up and poised to avenge their father (Winona accidentally killed him when she tried to protect him from demons, oops, revenants) . The other one is an agent from some covert division of Federal Bureau who apparently knows what’s happening.
Now first I thought it was a crappy b-class drama that I would stop watching anytime soon but… well addicting. I have not really anything to watch till I get the Defenders back in May and Game of Thrones in July (and some other new seasons of shows like Gotham, Arrow, Flash, the Legend of Tomorrow, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Stranger Things, West World, SNL… God, I got so many! Anyway, I can watch 10 episodes like one binge-watch over this weekend so I’ll watch this series till I get bored.
I don’t think it is well made but characters are intriguing and actors are doing good job. Then so many unexpected things happen one after another so I am not that bored.
Well, right now Winona Earp is not good enough to be into it but not bad enough to stop watching it till it gets so boring that I cannot go on watching it. So I temporarily give it 6.0. I really want to hear your thoughts on this if you watch this drama.

About dw64 (or Masa(aki) or Mark)

I am 52-year-old Japanese male. Ever since I watched Sesame Street when I was VERY young (5 years old?). I fell in love with American English and culture. I learned English hard and now I am teaching it. Then when I was 18, I had an opportunity to stay with an American family in Shell Knob, Missouri and I asked them to educate me as an American kid. So they taught me the American way and even my taste for food has changed completely so I call this rebirth! Then when I was 30 (I visited the U.S. several times but they were short stays), I joined the MA course in teaching English of graduate school in Vermont. I stayed about 10 months there (it was an intensive course). I stayed in a dorm and learned a lot inside and outside of classrooms. I got all the credits but I failed because of the difference in the context between the U.S. and JAPAN cuz it is so hard to teach English in The way I learned in the course because in Japan, teaching is about understanding grammar and structure in Japanese. But my journey does not end here. Last year I was admitted the CELTA course in NYC where I worked hard and got this certificate that certifies that I had finished the course and qualified to teach English to people who want learn English as a second language by Cambridge University standard. So if you are one of those people, send me a message and I can help you learn American English (I got this at Cambridge but basically they teach different English depending on location). Why did I pick NYC? Well, I am a huge fan of American everything! I live the country even when that demagogue guy is the President so I am an authentic fan of it. I mean, I love the U.S. more than anything in this world. There was a guy who loved Japan so much so after he retired he came to Japan and became a citizen. I want to do the same, actually. So now I am so into it, I listen to NYC CBS radio 880 all the time except when I watch dramas on Netflix, HBO or HULLU or read paperbacks on Kindle (read 70 books in the last two years). And then I am writing in English. I hope to be able to write something publishable in the future but I have to learn some more. As for my learning, I have almost done usual stuff so now I decide to do things that native speakers who wish to be writers will do. At least I learned 8000 words and phrases in the last couple years and I confirmed that I know more than 22000 words, which is tantamount to the number of words American graduate school students have. Well I might talk about these things, too, but I will talk about my favorite things in this blog. I love American dramas. I love the ones with some sci-fi portion in it. Like, from HULU, Gotham, Lucifer, Fringe, etc. I love good comedies so I love Seinfeld, SNL and night shows. Netflix? Luke Cage, Daredevil, and other defenders. I love legends of tomorrow, too. HBO, Game of Thrones!! And I also loved Night of and West World. I also might talk about cycling (road biking) and all other stuff! Please feel free to comment!
