This show had some amazing visuals.

The premises were so disjointed that it was practically dreamlike.

It defied categorization.

Roughly, it could be called “sci-fi,” but sci-fi is supposed to speculate logically from a premise. With this show, there were not enough identifiable premises to figure out what was happening and make logical calculations.

More than anything else, this story resembled a dream-like fantasy.

The origins of the superpowers started out as obscure but then became utterly unexplained.

“In medias res” is supposed to be a good way to TELL a story if the plot is already KNOWN.

I think the writers came up with some superheroic fantasies, then started writing episodes “in medias res” without ever trying to figure out how things fit together.

This was not a “story” so much as an incoherent series of episodes.
