An ITV mini-series review
When you watch a show where a teenager is torn be-tween two families where he fits into neither, It's heart-wrenching. HIM is a show where you get emotionally involved and, to me, needed to be much longer than three episodes.
HIM is a story of discovery. When a teenager with a mystical, possibly hereditary powers, he's afraid of what could possibly happen. Can he grow strong enough to handle it or will he become one of the fallen... like before? He can do things. He shares them as little magic tricks, but they're not- you have to see. But when he uses them during times of emotional upset, control is lost.
The program is enigmatic as you attempt to develop an empathetic feel to the teen's plight. Addressed as Him or He, you never get his name. He's more of an inconvenience to his family and the one who grows to know him and find any form of true love, can't be there for him. It's hard to watch because you want to coddle him.You want to help.
I grew concerned with the flow of episode one, but it gave a great deal of explanation. Episode two was amazing, leading in to three, which ended way too fast. Though you find out how He deals with his issues, you never find out how. You don't get to know such amazing things. The tied up ends didn't tie up.
Thanks to ITV and Britbox, I was able to watch this show in a one day binge, but you can actually watch all three episodes on Youtube.com. Check it out. I promise, if you give episode one a good chance, you'll enjoy it.
