    Looks good. Syfy will no doubt randomly cancel it.

    I think I read the first issue for this a few years ago. This looks cool.

    I was anxious for this more indi comic to get some love and recognition it deserved, and excited it got picked up for a TV series.
    But seriously one of the few (and there are so very few) Latino male leads in an ongoing comic
    Nicaraguan born Marcus Lopez Arguello - played by Benjamin Wadsworth (II)
    FU Hollywood! And those justifying why this is ok.

    First one usually being -but there are white latinos, yeah no kidding, there are also latino actors. and so few roles so when an opportunity comes, why not cast them.

    Syfy made the pilot available on youtube and on demand.

    Pretty good. Has its hooks into me. Will probably watch it again.

    Same. It's nice to see how close it sticks to the source material.

    Love the pilot.

    Man, I've had a huge crush on Erica Cerra (the Hand-to-Hand Combat instructor Miss DeLuca) since the Eureka days.

    Syfy made the pilot available for free on YouTube and I was really impressed with it despite not being familiar with the source material. I will definitely be checking out the rest of this series.

    Now, I know nothing of source material, but to me it looks like a HP / Kingsman rip off but did this get here first ?

    The actor who plays Marcus reminds me a bit of Dylan O'Brien.

    Ok, but it’s still great and entertaining and different. I don’t know where HP comes in though.

    Any boarding school type story is going to be compared to Harry Potter now.

    Not sure where the Kingsman comparison comes from.

    Because they kill people. As for the Harry Potter one, it’s such a stretch. Being at a boarding school does not make it close to a Harry Potter rip-off. There’s no magic involved so, let’s drop that.

    Just finished the first episode and I thought it was great. So I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.
