First ep was great, took the West Side Story route, updating everything to a different time while still keeping the general events the same. There's a ball and Romeo meets Juliet anonymously. It looked good, so I had hopes. 2nd ep was ok, and the then everything went to shit from there.
But my main complaint is Mercutio. How can you take the most badass, insane, and for /a/, GAR character in R&J and turn him the biggest pussy of the series? He's supposed to go of on 5 minute rants that start off as 'Mah bro, you're in love' and end up as him going insane over Queen Mab. When a man makes a pun as his dying breath and changes the play from a comedy to a drama, how can you disrespect him by making him into a groveling, bitch-tears crying pussy?
