It is not a milestone in terms of TV and cinema inspired by the IP, but it has had better reviews than past productions.
The Resident Evil series on Netflix has already debuted in the midst of all the possible uncertainty and it is that apart from what some animated films have done, most of the franchise’s productions have not satisfied the fans and have not worked as proposals from the zombie, horror or action genre. With everything to gain and nothing to lose, the new series seems to have come out well, at least within the standard that sets the IP itself outside of video games.
