‘Dominion’ on Syfy

‘Dominion’ on Syfy

Watched the premiere of ‘Dominion’ on Syfy.

K, so, God’s away on business…business.
He probably said he was going to the corner store to pick up a carton of cigarettes.
Yep, a dead beat dad.
Where is he when everything is running amok?
Angels were always jealous of humans because of the whole soul thing I suppose.
Anyway, in the show, Michael must be promiscuous and mentions angels should not reproduce with humans, like creating Nephilim, which I have read were super strong and giants.
If this is so, then was Jesus a Nephilim, too?
Someone should do a movie of Jesus turning into a Hulk-type character. “Jesus smash evil!”

Back to ‘Dominion’. It’s a post-apocalyptic world, everyone lives in walled cities as protection against the evil angels that have slaughtered the majority of humans, merely to get God’s attention since no one seems to know where he is.
Alex, ‘the chosen one’ though unknown by him or anyone other than Michael, is now an adult and a soldier in Michael’s anti-angel army in the prison-like city of Vega (built upon the ruins of Las Vegas). Everyone has a number and is classified, much like today- elite, those that serve the elite, and the poor. Alex’s dead beat dad, no, the other, the adopted one, returns, is murdered by one of Gabriel’s minions and the tattoos that he (Jeep, Alex’s step-dad’s name) was never able to decipher, miraculously appears on Alex upon Jeep’s death.
It’s complicated, just like the line between good and evil.
Oh, but there was this Iron Man evil angel called Furiad who fights Michael that was kinda strange. With swords, of course. I don’t think angels use guns. I would imagine they could think you to death or melt you with laser beam-type eyes or something.
I’m finished now. Just go watch it.

And now for some appropriate music-

    Watched the pilot annnnnnndddd I was not impressed. Acting was fine, casting was fine, even the effects were fine, I was just not that impressed with the storyline/plot/concept.

    A for effort, but on the whole it struck me as yet another exercise in fighting demons, along the same lines of Angel, Grimm, Supernatural, Dresden Files, Demons, Charmed, or Sleepy Hollow (Constantine coming out this Fall looks to be another show in the same vein).

    I didn’t really mind any of those shows, and was actually into Sleepy Hollow for a couple episodes but . . then . . . I kinda . . . lost . . . interest.

    Maybe it’s me, but it seemed none of those programs were willing to put in the extra effort necessary to keep me watching. Instead they followed the same old tried/true but tired formula of gruesome demons under control of sinister demonic overlord with nefarious intent vs predestined hero with supernatural abilities, yadda, yadda, yadda.

    I’ll keep watching for another episode or two to give it a chance, but I can’t help thinking this Buffy remake with the Apocalyptic twist will face the same fate as all the rest – “Delete Season Pass.”
