I read about Shadow Unit with interest–hey, Emma Bull (
), gotta be great. But by the time the episodes came out, I was so swamped with work that I didn't have time to read them. (Yeah, heaven forbid I should read the web at home…) Part of me thought, sounds rather X-Files though, yawn.
Now, I was a HUGE X-Files fan, well, up until the last coupla seasons. And I'm a fan of the B.P.R.D. comics. I like the idea of an official agency of varying degrees of perceived legitimacy. But, been there, done that.
OK, wrong. Shadow Unit is fascinating, and I'm not quite through the first episode, “Breathe.” The concept of the anomaly, with talk of gammas and betas. I crave to know more! The device of the newbie on the team helps bring the reader along without it feeling like Basil Exposition. I'm still having difficulty telling some of the characters apart, but hey, reading at work, cut me some slack.
Really good stuff. How could I have thought otherwise? I mean, it's Emma Bull.
