Ah The Delta State. I am really finding myself drawn into this fine show.
Why? Glad you asked.
- Always been a fan of rotoscoped animation. For those unaware of what this means, actors are filmed playing out the scenes and then drawn, painted, computer pixeled over for super realistic movements.
- The story is oddly seductive. Each episode they drop a hint that is picked up in a later episode. They find a photo or something that triggers off events 3 episodes down the line. Most shows are too afraid this kind of thing makes it hard to enter a show if you haven't seen all the episodes, but i'm a big fan of doing things this way.
- Lots of mystery that goes with amnesiacs- a kind of wolverine origin thing thrown in the mix.
- The kids are on a quest, they actually get closer, and they get there in the end, after 24 episodes. None of this endless wondering melarky. The hints they seed and pick up later let you know the writers aren't making it up as they go along....
- Grown up (almost) cartoons. Always good.
- Good character development. Well, as developed 4 amnesiacs can be.
- And finally, lets face it... the girls are kinda hot.
Who is aware of this? Who can stop it???? That's where our 20 something heros come in. 4 20ish kids, 2 guys, 2 girls live together in an apartment. They have abilities, all of them- Red haired Luna can see the future. Claire can project herself to look around any area just by looking at a photo or video of an object. Phil can pick up visions from objects about whoever touched the objects. Martin can read minds. When 2 or more of them wish to, they can cross over to the delta state, leaving their sleeping bodies behind. Did i mention they know nothing of their past? To guide them is the mysterious professor Brody, a shadowy leader and guidence figure, a sort of yoda with a much darker past.
Weeknights, 10:30 on Teletune. We're getting closer to finding out about Brody's past....
