First Impressions: Netflix’s The Hollow

Today, The Hollow premiered on Netflix. This is a supenatural mystery animation, and I was curious about it, but unfortunately it didn’t delivered, at least on episode one.

The premise is interesting enough: three kids don’t remember who they are, and are confronted with many dangerous mysteries. The story and script are nice. It’s on the animation, dubbing and pacing that it doesn’t do a good job.

The animation feels a little bit strange, unnatural, and reminds me of some older point and click games I’ve used to play on my computer. And also does the dubbing. It may be the animation fault, and not the dubbers, but sometimes it feels like it’s just someone patiently practicing the script. And with this, the pacing gets way too slow, of course.

With the first episode feeling like a pilot, I won’t be continuing the series, unless I read some great reviews praising the series from episode 2 onwards.

  1. It really is worth a watch. The show actually integrates all the elements quite well by episode 3 and continues on from there. I am not entirely sure I liked the final answers to the series, but that may be more my age talking – pretty sure if I was a 11 year old the answers would be mind blowing.
