FATE: THE WINX SAGA S1 🤮

Even though it’s trending at #1 on Netflix right now, you should avoid this one at all costs. This terrible attempt to make a teen-angst BUFFY/HARRY POTTER/CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA knock off out of an extinct Nickelodeon cartoon show for girls features the stupidest main character in the history of tween dramas since Bella Swan, coupled with tired tropes, and racist white-washing of Asian and Latino characters. Add to the fact that literally nothing of interest happens in 5 out of the 6 episodes outside of goofy romance, bad unearned relationships, poor chemistry between the ensemble, and even worse decisions on the part of all characters involved, one can only hope the saga will die at Season 1.

I realize not many people saw last year’s underrated WARRIOR NUN, which was campy good fun. However, after viewing FATE: THE WINX SAGA, I’d be willing to give every Emmy conceivable to NUN in a heartbeat.

Skip this putrid display of tween garbage, and let it continue to fester and rot on Netflix for god knows how long.
