Dominion. Season 1

When God suddenly disappeared, the angels filled the land. Under the leadership of the Archangel Gabriel, they moved into the human body and began to destroy all the people who they are not useful. Only one archangel Michael ( Tom Wisdom ) stood on the side of humanity. He helped the survivors to build walls around the city and to equip them with anti-aircraft guns and machine guns. And he hid from angels and men Favorites – baby born at the beginning of the war, who is destined to put an end to the confrontation between Heaven and Earth. Since then, 25 years have passed, and almost nobody in the world knows that the Chosen One – a simple sergeant Alex Lennon ( Christopher Egan ) of the city guard Vega, a former Las Vegas.

You have not yet tired of stories about characters who suddenly find out that they – the fate of choices predicted by ancient prophecies? We must admit that I am sick of them long ago. Because, firstly, where courageous (or, conversely, more feminine) himself to decide that you should save humanity. And secondly, independent characters are usually more colorful than soggy youngsters like Luke Skywalker or Alex Lennon, relying on the wise teachers and mystical orders.

Although the action of the show develops in Las Vegas and the screen can be seen emerging from war city attractions, “Dominion” was filmed mainly in South Africa

At least Luke was cool the Jedi sword, and he jumped like a grasshopper. Alex is in a battle waving boring steel sword and even more boring “Glock” and he has no superpowers but gains by the end of the season and surprisingly useless skill angels cast out of human bodies. The rest of the Lennon – muscled copy Skywalker, boring and not particularly well-wisher enterprising without a sense of humor, and follow his adventures only slightly more pleasant and interesting than the rip teeth without anesthesia. If in the “Dominion” there were no other important characters and storylines, we could in good conscience to forget about the new series of the cable channel SyFy and continue to watch “Supernatural”, where also there is a war with the inhabitants of heaven and where people are fighting on the side of a much more attractive in all respects guys than Alex Lennon. And the angels in ” Supernatural “more entertaining than the straight winged heroes and villains of the new show.

“Dominion” is the sequel to the fantastic horror 2010 “Legion”, which tells about the invasion of the angels and the birth of the Chosen One. As the film and TV series were invented written and directed by Scott Stewart

Fortunately, in the first season of “Dominion” Alex, though the plot is important, but, in fact, a minor character. In the center of the show is not a preparation for a Man ​​under the direction of Michael and his first encounter with Gabriel’s henchmen and undercover fight for power in Vega, his ruthless and bloody resembling ” Game of Thrones . ” Australian charismatic Alan Dale (King George of ” Once in a fairy tale “) against the British charismatic Anthony Head’s (Giles from” Buffy – The Vampire Slayer “) – someone who sboret? Who are the rulers of Vega makes better use of their adult children, who have their own political agenda? Who will be able to rely on allies in the city senate and in other cities – especially in populated lesbians Helene (formerly San Diego)? Of course, in the “game” intrigue much bigger, and the rulers of Westeros smarter and more cunning than the leaders of the Vega. But if you appreciate the pretentious, cynical and cruel stories of people “move” on the government, the first season of “Dominion” may inspire you.

The main thing – do not be put off by the fact that General Reisen (Dale) and his daughter Claire ( Roxanne McKee ) at first seem as tedious and virtuous characters, Alex. During the season they both are quite worthy of its rivals, though not so bloodthirsty and crazy as Consul David Weale ( Head ) and his son preacher William ( Luke Allen-Gale ). Head “burn” especially bright – he alone makes the first season of “Dominion” worthwhile.

What else is worth mentioning in the discussion of “Dominion”? His theology is primitive, but it is more beautiful and glamorous than the ” Call “and the other post-apocalyptic series SyFy. Its effects do not hit, but do not cause disgust, and “nudity” in the show is much less than one would suspect, anticipating reading series ominous warnings about inappropriate content for children. The same “Game” in this context where uninhibited. So the only indisputable advantage of the show – “scandals, intrigues, investigation” Vega by charismatic stars. And for the sake of their first season of “Dominion” and worth watching.
