Plot and Review
October Faction is a comic adaptation because, which is expected to become an addictive narrative after the success of most comic book adaptations which involve a thrill of certain sorts. These adaptations include the Umbrella Academy and Riverdale which have turned out to be a great venture. And let’s not forget the comic book giants of DC and Marvel that always create a positive anticipation in the minds of the audience.
With all this data, it is inevitable that October Faction will also create the same compelling narrative that will tempt the audience to have an obsession for its specific universe which involves the main protagonists, Fred and Deloris Allen to hide their identities as globetrotting monster hunters in upstate New York where they have shifted with their two children – Geoff and Viv.
The first season was not a huge success and was a half baked story which could have involved more monster hunting to make it more interesting. The family secret and the thrill is always a plus but only if the makers increase the quality of the content pertaining to the ordinary storyline of yet another comic book adaptation.
The show expects a lot of perseverance on the viewer’s part because of how incredibly slow it is. It creates a universe of itself but rather ends up indulging into the trope of high school drama and ends up berating its own narrative by confusing everyone.
As October Faction season 1 reaches its climax, the Allen children learn the truth about their heritage, while Fred and Deloris are seemingly separated forever.
Conclusion and Expectation
According to showrunner Damian Kindler, October Faction season 2 on Netflix will further explore the backstory of the mysterious man-machine Dante (Calvin Desautels). Even after the underwhelming reviews of the first season, there is hope that the second season might redeem the unfounded glory of the amazing cast which wasn’t able to deliver good performances in the previous season because of an underdeveloped script.
But the silver lining here is that the show has the potential to become binge worthy for a certain demographic that has the patience to let the story guide them wherever it wants without passing judgement but that is usually impossible.
