I knew what it was going for but it suffered for trying too hard and from lack of focus.
I mean, I get it, this combo looks awesome on paper: A little Robert Rodriguez grindhouse (complete with Danny Trejo), a little Shaw Brothers kung-fu action (complete with logo “homage” and displays of snake, drunken fist, and other styles… from 3 students with the same sifu, but whatever), a little Shaft (Why yes, I can dig it!), some Catholic Church+Indigenous religion-infused horror, with a dash of wokeness — well, I think you get the point.
I honestly thought this was going to be right up my alley. But it ended up being more of a 6-way intersection.

I might give a second season a chance, though.
