These are the adventures of the Legacy (whose front is the Luna Foundation), a secret society dedicated to protecting humanity from the forces of darkness. And wouldn’t you know it, those pesky forces are present around every corner in the form of somewhat ramshackle special effects. The leader of the group lost his father to demons as a child, and now carries on the good fight. Every episode sees the group up against another nasty ghost or other supernatural force. Points must be given for …heer creativity, even if the explanations as to what the nasty creatures are all about stretch credulity, even by the often flexible terms of the genre. If you can insert your tongue firmly into your cheek (necessary to put up with much of the dour and portentous dialogue), you might find some cornball entertainment here. And no, the series has nothing to do with the movies, other than the title.
The 2.0 sound is the best thing about this set. It is lively and crystal clear. There are plenty of good environmental effects, so, for instance, rain pours down from all sides, which is good for immersion in the story. So many TV transfers make do with having surround music and no more, so getting plenty of effects is very welcome. Nothing earth-shattering here, but very solid stuff.
The same is not true of the video. The picture is frequently very murky (good luck making out what on earth is going on in a few shots). The image is soft. The colours are okay, if a little drab, but the blacks are good. The really big problem is the grain, which is absolutely appalling. Overall, the picture is watchable, but only just, and is distinctly ugly enough to be a real distraction.
None, except for a few previews. The menu’s main screen is scored, but the intro is animated and scored.
