Machinima is back with a new live action web series, this time based on Resident Evil. The show is a prequel of sorts to RE2, following Leon Kennedy as he turns up to the wrong station on his first day.
Episode 1 is extremely slow and lacks any action (or dialog, for that matter). I understand the need to "set the tone," but this is a great way to turn off viewers immediately. I hope it gets better. I know others weren't too hot on Mortal Kombat: Legacy, but I enjoyed it, and I would like to enjoy First Hour as well.
