I finally got around to finishing up Wednesday so I thought there’s no better time to post a review than on Wednesday. This might be an unpopular opinion but all around I thought it was a good show but not a great one. While Jenna Ortega was amazing as Wednesday for some reason, the show just didn’t get its hooks into me like other shows have. When other shows that I truly loved finished a season I would wait with bated breath to hear if it was renewed or not but with Wednesday I honestly would have been fine either way. It wasn’t bad but there were just one too many things that I had a problem with for me to be all in.
The biggest problem was the strained relationship between Wednesday and Morticia. Now, I’m no expert on the Addams family but from everything I know about them it just feels wrong that there’d be any tension between them at all. Another less serious problem I had was that it only became clear halfway through the season that everyone outside of the school knew about the supernatural and that outcast was the show’s name for supernaturals instead of a description. I don’t know if I just missed it but it took me way too long to realize that the normies actually knew about the supernatural and that created too much confusion for me. I also got kind of annoyed that the other characters seemed to flip-flop between not understanding Wednesday and understanding her. One moment they would act like they understood the way she acted then the next they would be mad at her for something she did. I just found the inconsistency a little annoying.
So the problems I have with the show combined with the good parts make me give the show a 6 out of 10.
