Yeah, I know. “About time, OP!” It’s only been about a month and a half since it premiered!
Sorry, guys. If you need an explanation, see my post from a couple weeks ago. Also — and I hate to play this card again — I’m a college student. The semester just ended last week. I’m finally free again — at least for about a month and a half.
Enough excuses. Let’s get started. What did I think of WoW season one?
I liked it. I didn’t love it, but it kept me hooked (pun intended) long enough to binge-watch all 13 episodes from 3-9 a.m. the day it premiered. I’ve never done that before with any show. (I regret nothing.)
What kept me from loving it? One thing was knowing it’s not canon. Boy, does it show! I’m not sure it fits into the main timeline at all!
The Winx are friends with Roxy (or at least Bloom is), but she’s not being hunted by The Wizards of the Black Circle? And she still works at the Frutti Music Bar? But she knows she’s a fairy, she’s good with her magic, and she can already transform? (She said something like, “If only we had our wings,” in one episode.)
And in episode one, Tecna said the Winx had already been on Earth for months. Where’s Love & Pet? Where’s their band? And no one knows they’re fairies, but Earth has magic again?
Why is the room spinning?
I guess it doesn’t matter. WoW‘s a spinoff, so it doesn’t have to follow Winx Club‘s timeline. The most it can be is an alternate season five, but even that’s stretching it a bit. In the end, it’s just a nice, little distraction for older fans. It’s not worth fussing over.
If we’re gonna pick it apart, we’d have to do it to PopPixie, too. Pixies have transformations, The Tree of Life has yet another function it doesn’t have the main show, Digit and Zing are boys — forget it. Read the rest of this post
