Review of "EVIL" 9/20/19 by Suzanne
airs Thursdays, 10/9c on CBS

This is a compelling show starring Mike Colter, who was so fabulous as "Luke Cage" on Netflix. I hate that they canceled that show, but this is an interesting one. He plays a priest-in-training, David Acosta, who works for the Catholic church checking out any demon possession stories. He was previously a veteran journalist. Katja Herbers ("Westworld") plays Kristen, a forensic psychology who starts working with him. They investigate weird phenomenon to discover whether it's real or not.  In a way, it reminds me of "The X-Files." Comedia/Actor Aasif Mandvi plays Ben, David's helper who does all of the tech stuff for him. Ben is a skeptic, and the other two aren't sure what to believe.

Michael Emerson (one of the best actors on TV) plays the villain Leland Townsend. There's great chemistry between Colter and Herbers, which is mentioned in the very first episode.  There are some fun special effects. It's a spooky show - just right Halloween. I think it's worth watching.

MORE INFORMATION:

KATJA HERBERS, MIKE COLTER, AASIF MANDVI AND MICHAEL EMERSON STAR IN THE NEW DRAMA “EVIL,” A PSYCHOLOGICAL MYSTERY THAT EXAMINES THE ORIGINS OF EVIL ALONG THE DIVIDING LINE BETWEEN SCIENCE AND RELIGION, FROM EXECUTIVE PRODUCERS ROBERT AND MICHELLE KING, PREMIERING THURSDAY, SEPT. 26

Christine Lahti, Kurt Fuller, Brooklyn Shuck, Skylar Gray, Maddy Crocco and

Dalya Knapp Also Star

“Pilot” – Forensic psychologist Kristen Bouchard is hired by the Catholic Church to work with David Acosta, a priest-in-training, and contractor Ben Shakir, to determine whether a serial killer is possessed by a demon or merely a psychopath. Kristen finds that she has a taste for the work and is invited to join the team on a permanent basis, on the series premiere of EVIL, Thursday, Sept. 26 (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Christine Lahti, Kurt Fuller, Brooklyn Shuck, Skylar Gray, Maddy Crocco and Dalya Knapp also star.

The series focuses on a skeptical female psychologist who joins a priest-in-training and a contractor as they investigate the Church’s backlog of unexplained mysteries, including supposed miracles, demonic possessions and hauntings. Kristen Bouchard cuts ties as an expert witness for the District Attorney after being pushed to lie in court regarding an alleged murderer who appeared to be possessed. To make ends meet, Kristen accepts a job offer from David Acosta, a former adventure-seeking journalist now studying to be a priest and tasked by the Church to assess unexplained phenomena. Rounding out the trio is Ben Shakir, an even-tempered realist recruited by Acosta for his carpentry skills, which he uses to uncover practical rationales behind “hauntings.” Ever logical, Kristen is certain science can provide answers to every incident they encounter – including her own chillingly real night terrors. That is, until she meets Leland Townsend, a sinister man who oozes menace and threatens her and her four young daughters. Undeterred, Kristen, David and Ben set out to assess inexplicable events to see if there’s a logical explanation or if something truly supernatural is at work
