You ever get that feeling of deja vu?
I mentioned this pre outage but I'll summarize.
- Jonas and Mac become cool 60 year olds who does crazy awesome stunts despite their age for no reason except an obvious mid-life crisis on the author's part.
- Multiple times, sex is brought up or happens and Jonas and his wife Terry, despite having a "happy" marriage, have multiple times where they consider cheating.
- A PETA group and Dubai buisness men are portrayed as backwards idiots that die grusome deaths after trying to expolit The Megs in the fourth novel.
- While it's still enjoyable, The Megs and the other sea monsters Alten introduces aren't treated as powerful monsters cloaked in suspense but instead as 30% generic threat, 20% intentional so bad, it's good monsters (Ever wanted to see a Meg attack a baseball game?), and 50% excuse for AWASUM characters to be AWASOMEU and kill in AWAWASUM ways.
TLDR: Please don't 1 to 1 adapt the sequels Warner Brothers.
