And here we have our winner of the season. Erased is hands down the best show of Winter 2016. Gorgeous animation, incredible characters, shocking story and edge of seat suspense. 10/10
Wild plot twists with quirks... a future with two pasts. Interesting to see which past wins and will it be enough to save both the past and the future.
I'd say that the most challenging of all plot devices is time travel; when it's bad, it's truly horrible. But this show seems to be very carefully conceived -- as much as I can tell from the pilot, it might just be brilliant. Between the time travel and the murders, I can't help being reminded of a movie called "Frequency", with Jim Caviezel. I'd love to see more of this story, to know how it turns out.
