(One episode watched):

For one reason or another, I could not get engaged with this show and found it to be kind of boring. Willem didn't strike me as a particularly interesting character, and neither did anyone else. I don't recall laughing at all as I watched either. Nothing seriously surprising happened; I had guessed well in advance that the 'weapons' that Willem was being put in charge of were in fact the children at the facility. The synopsis above mentions that Beasts have virtually wiped out humans, but I don't recall being told that in episode one. At any rate, Fairies are so similar to humans that hardly anything seems to have changed. Nor was I told that Willem had 'awakened' from a long sleep--or maybe I was, but the show was generating so little interest within me that I didn't consider the point to be worth remembering. I guess the idea is that the first fight between a Beast and a Fairy will take place in episode two, but I have already decided not to watch this show.
