Despite the quality of writing dropping in the last few episodes, I was truly fond of the main cast and had a great time just watching them interact with another. When the series ended leaving several plot threads dangling in the wind, I waited in anticipation for a season 2 announcement.
One that unfortunately never came.
Instead, Sunrise announced two feature films, The Beginning and The Rising. The former would be a retelling (groan) of the start of the series and the latter would be a brand new storyline. Keeping my expectations low, I went to check out the first movie.
Much to my surprise, I had a grand ole' time."
