It's out on Netflix since a few months and I enjoyed it. Even it's confusing at the start.

A small hint to make it easier: this series contains heavy doses of timetravel, so be prepared to watch it again. 

Some flashbacks you will see make only sense with the second season. 

Unfortunally it will take a while till she will be out on the screen... or rather: stream

There are some videos at youtube explaining the characters, their history and powers based on the comic books.

The main difference is: those play in a steampunk kind Europe around 1900. And ofc: there are heavy spoilers.

To get an idea about it, my fav scene from the first episode

And the official trailer

Oh, and the soundtrack ofc.

Just found this mojo clip about it

Finish it. The real good part comes with the episodes 8-10.

Netflix cancelled all their Marvel TV series in anticipation of the Streaming Wars, as Disney is preparing its own streaming service, Disney+.  Oh yeah, Apple too wants its own streaming service.  

 

You can expect Disney to introduce all sorts of Marvel and Star Wars themed TV series to be exclusive to Disney+.  Add the Fox Studio movie library and franchises too, including the X-Men.  

 

Netflix is countering back with whole new series of their own, using Sci-Fi, Super Hero and even anime.    This series is a good step forward.

I Have watched 5 episodes so far, it is okay for a drama show. I feel about it the same as FBI series. I will watch the show until the end, because would like to know how the world ends.

I only finished watching the season, to see what happens. To me it is just another drama show, with some charactors having special powers. 

The last episode, I did not find that one boring. The time travelling handler, I still do not understand .
