Are ya’ll ready for another YA book adaptation! YEAH, LET ME HEAR IT, WHAT WHAT? Wait, I don’t hear anything. Oh yeah, because WE’RE ALL GETTING PRETTY TIRED OF THESE THINGS. But, here we go again only now with seemingly career-YA-actress Amandla Stenberg (you know, Rue from The Hunger Games) as the main character in a world where most kids suddenly died of a mysterious disease, but those who didn’t got one of five powers. The government took all those kids and either murdered them, imprisoned them, or turned them into hounds like Rachel Summers (you X-Men comic readers know what I’m talking about). So now Rue (deal with it) and her new friends are on the run looking for a may-or-may-not-exist safe place where powered kids can live in their socialist utopia. *sigh*. Anyhow, your reviewers are Chris, Shak, Kim, and Marco. Enjoy.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
