Fate: The Winx Saga Review


IMDB Synopsis: A live-action adaptation of Nickelodeon's Winx Club (2004). It follows Bloom as she adjusts to life in the Otherworld, where she must learn to control her dangerous magical powers.

Fangirl Thoughts:  I was introduced to this show by two different people and I figured I would sit down and watch it. When I first heard about it, I wondered if it had any connection to the Nickelodeon cartoon and I was surprised that I was correct. 

The show is a darker, edgier version of the cartoon and it immediately sucked me in. Sadly the main character Bloom follows the old trope of the choosen one that makes ridiculous selfish mistakes but continues to land on her feet. Why can't we have a character that is strong and makes good decisions? I do not think that is too hard of a concept. 

The graphics do not look like they were high budget but I can understand that as it was only green lit for six episodes to see if they would be fans for the show. Let me tell you! This show sucks you in quick and I highly recommend it. I enjoyed the relationships between the characters as well as the different types of magic used in the show. 

There are whispers of the show getting a second season but nothing has been officially announced by Netflix so I guess we just have to wait and see. 

Until next time, 

Vikki - Fangirl
