A reimagining of the classic series, The Equalizer centers on an enigmatic woman with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn.

Watched 1x1. Many people have criticized that they've picked Queen Latifah for the lead character, saying that her level of fitness does not fit the role. I agree, but if you can overlook that, the show is "okay" IMHO. Nothing for any Top 10 list, but not crap either.

Is this more like the 80s series or rather the Denzel Washington movies?

I did not watch the former and suggest you don't compare it to the latter. big_smile

The Equalizer (2014) was on a different level*, this show reminded me more of https://next-episode.net/taken-2017, and both shows share Adam Goldberg in a very similar role. smile

Now
4.1 out of 5 here at NE (10 ratings)
4.1 out of 10 at IMDB (1858 ratings)
cool

It's funny how divergent ratings here and there are for some shows. smile Sadly, in recent years, IMDb attracted more 'drama ratings' for some shows (and movies): "Oh no, I'm so upset that XYZ was done in this show, let me rate it 1/10!!" Stupid...

As such shows go this one is competent, fast paced, and entertaining. It held my interest, although I was half-expecting a snooze-fest. With so many scripted shows there are not enough good writers to supply them all.

What, we are body shaming assassins now? big_smile Heard "young, black women" in the trailer, pass. Also this has no chance to match this Equalizer, which was great: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0455944/

So far I've watched 3 episodes and although I'm old enough to remember the original series with Mr Woodward I am enjoying this.

And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes....

Re: The Equalizer (2021) [Drama, Crime, Thriller]

same here, the show hasn't disappointed yet. Dare I say this has a 'Person of Interest' vibe to it?
