I heard that this is based on a movie called "Legion",
which I didn't see. It was supposed to be bad but made a lot
of money. The only thing that this show does remind me of is
"Supernatural" on The CW, since it's also about angels. The
two shows are very different, however. "Supernatural" is
about two brothers who hunt demons, and they also get
involved with angels. God is apparently dead or missing, and
there are some good angels and some bad angels. In
"Dominion", there are no hunters or demons, just angels, and
they've had a big war with humanity. It appears that most
angels are bad, except for one angel, Michael, who sided
with humans. Humans have been made almost extinct but
survive in small cities. Michael presides over a city called
Vega, which used to be Las Vegas.
There apparently are different types of angels, and the
humans fight against them all. There's a legend that there's
one human child that Michael saved that's supposed to be
"The Chosen One", who'll save humanity. The pilot
episode was very interesting, although very predictably we
learn that the hero is the chosen one. The whole title
or concept of "The Chosen One" or savior has really been
over-used quite a bit in science fiction and fantasy on TV
and in movies, such as "Once Upon a Time", "Thor", "The
Matrix", "Harry Potter", Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and a lot
more. This show could use some of the humor of
"Supernatural" because it does take itself a little too
Here are a few reasons I'll keep watching it. The actor
who plays Michael (Tom Wisdom) is super-cool and gorgeous.
The actor who plays our hero, Alex (Christopher Egan) is
also very good and cute. Anthony Head (most known as Giles
in "Buffy" and Uther in "Merlin") is playing one of the bad
guys in the show. He speaks like an American here, which is
a shame, but he's always wonderful. And lastly, it's a
pretty entertaining scifi/fantasy show with lots of great
action and special effects. So unless they get too gross
like "Helix" or kill off someone I like, I'll probably keep
watching. Check it out this week!
