We mate the first episode of All-American, the new series of Cody Christian and Samantha Logan. It reveals to you all after what you thought
Last night was aired the first episode of All-American, the new series from Cody Christian (Teen Wolf) and Samantha Logan (13 Reasons Why) on The CW. The story tells that of Spencer James, a teenager from the suburbs of Los Angeles, recruited to join the team of american football and the high school in Beverly Hills. From the beginning of the series, we immediately realize that we are going to have to deal with two totally different, two parallel worlds. Where Spencer grew up, there are shootings, the young people try to survive by doing sometimes the wrong things, families are tightening the belt… moreover, we learn that Spencer lives with his mother and his little brother, but that his father left several years ago. Then, during a game of american football, the coach Billy Baker recruited the heroes of the series to integrate the high school in Beverly Hills.
Spencer was a little difficult to integrate
If the family of the coach Baker welcomes rather well Spencer, the young man has obviously had a first week very difficult. The arrival of a teenager of color in this lycée huppé is seen from a bad eye by some… And next friends, it was also a bit complicated. Olivia (Samantha Logan) and Jordan, the children of the coach, took Spencer under their wing, but when he met his band mates, there were sparks. Especially with Asher (Cody Christian), who, very sure of himself, did not hesitate to put it back in its place. Knowing that he plays the same position of Spencer and the latter is shown somewhat interested in Leila, the girlfriend of Asher, he wanted to set a trap. During an evening, he and Jordan did drink Spencer, the day before a game. And obviously, he has struggled in the face of assessors the next day. And to say that one is only at the beginning of the series… But the rivalry is already there !
A possible story between Olivia and Spencer ?
Level suspense and twists and turns, there has also been a few in this driver, All American. Already, there have been games under high voltage, either side-players or side result. Then, Spencer was forced to move in with coach Baker to be able to continue to attend the high school Beverly Hills, and his goodbye with his little family, did not hesitate to touch us. But it is mainly the very end of the episode that caught our attention. We discovered Billy Baker, back in the mother of Spencer. And when she opened the door, he told her : “Gracie, we need to talk. We have to tell the truth to Spencer.” What ?! But what is it ? And if the coach was actually his father ? It could cause some problems between Spencer, Jordan and its potential reconciliation with Olivia in the coming episodes. Unless it involves something completely different… But to find out, it will have to wait until next Wednesday, with the sequel to All American ! Anyway, this driver was nice enough to look at, but there is hope that the plot will take a little more size by the following. And also note that the soundtrack is really well chosen ! In the meantime, you can find our review of the Season Premiere of Black-Lighting season 2.
