A not so super hero
Good TV is selective about what it employs to highlight the narrative themes, symbolism and characterisation. Jongo looks as if it added everything because the editing desk had visualeffects buttons.
Add a weird jumble of almost every imaginable music genre, from techno to rock to classic, as well as strange accents, curious dancing and boxing scenes with no dialogue that run too long – along with major pacing problems – and Jongo feels more like a student project than the groundbreaking local science fiction series it could have been.
