I would love nothing more than to be hopeful for it because I'll always wanted a TV series about Resident Evil, but Holly Molly does the description sounds bad and uninteresting.

This said, I will give it a shot anyway, hope to be wrong on this one.

You know...this sounds so bad...so freaking bad, so train-wrecking-on-fire bad, that I think I'll give it a watch just to marvel myself at it. Even Paul W.Anderson's movie premises weren't so bad like this...even when he turned the RE world into the zombie-apocalypse-cliché-world (something that I glad the games never did, because that would mean all of our heroes's efforts were for nothing)...and then it comes this series, and even the synopsis is full of clichés already (post apocalyptic world, rebel sis x shy sis etc)

Also, the Weskers sisters description in one of the leaks gave me a Wolfenstein Youngblood vibes...and it's not a good thing.

I can see it now: Wesker's daughters will have Alice like super-mary su like powers, or just masters of wire-fu! Almost everyone on the show will be gay, including canon characters. Chris would be Wesker's secret lover, Jill would probably be a hardcore feminist, Claire and Ada would be a couple, and Barry would be a bumbling idiot that no one would take seriously.

I am afraid not of the zombies, but what nonsense Constantine Films will give us.

Damn, I was hoping by wesker children it would be a prequel story based on Albert's and Alex's origins with Spencer with the other kids part of the wesker experiment. Instead it looks like it will be nonsense. I'll still be watching it though, I don't want to make up my mind on it yet, I could be pleasantly surprised.

Seems like they're aiming for teen drama, just like every other damn show these days. If they wanted that, they could've respected the franchise by making a show about Alfred and Alexia Ashford instead.

This is such a good idea, something like that would have actually been quite cool.

I don't know if it is an unpopular opinion or not, but despite not being my favorites, the Ashford have always been - in my opinion - the most creepy/terrifying villains of the saga, so a series centered around them would have helped lots with the atmosphere, and would have also added an element of psychological horror as well.

I would have also loved something with Albert and Alex as well.

I got to read a draft of Episode 1... It was okay, though it is closer related to the movie universe. I feel like this is the series announced back in 2017 that Constantin Films claimed was an extension of the movies. It feels that way here, but is definitely more horror/mystery than action.
