Dominion – SyFy

The new summer TV shows have started so I thought I would begin writing some short reviews.  Note: The premise is SPOILED for some shows that aired recently.  If you want to see these shows and don’t want to know the premise than be wary.

Dominion

Pro’s:

  • Who here wanted to see a continuation of the movie Legion?  Well if you did this show may offer you something familiar.  Let’s face it very few people thought Buffy the Vampire would be an interesting TV show after the original movie.

  • Setting a sci-fy show in Las Vegas is kinda cool and so are the subtle references to the Hunger games city and culture.  (There is even a surprise love triangle that involves the pairing of two people based on political convenience).

  • The show is on the SyFy channel on Thursday night when the schedule (at least for me) is wide open with nothing all that great on to watch.

  • Also this show airs right before a first time basic cable showing of Spartacus (which aired originally on premium channel Starz from 2010-13).

Con’s

  • My first warning sign came when I got bored half way through watching the 4 minute preview trailer.  The trailer should be intriguing and filled with excitement.  This trailer was cheesy and the characters had nothing interesting to say.

  • The movie version of Legion didn’t really interest me.  I guess the story is the Angels are mad at mankind so they decide to destroy us.  Once we are all dead I guess they feel like God will return to them or something.  I am not sure what the point of that might be.

  • And except for the lead guy and maybe a young girl that looks and acts like Cosette from Les Mis, the acting is just standard and the dialogue is very banal.

  • So I am probably done watching this show.  The good news is that the CW’s The 100 is rerunning this summer.  I may give that a try as it is supposed to be good syfy survival story.
