Well, what can I say, except, um, I expected something better than this 30-second first look at the upcoming new Syfy Channel show “Dominion.” This is, of course, the show based on the Scott Stewart movie “Legion,” starring Paul Bettany as an angel who comes to Earth to save the day.
I really enjoy that movie — or at least, parts of it. There are whole chunks of “Legion” that are pretty terrible.
Anyways, I did have high hopes for this TV series though, which we’re told “follows the perilous journey of a rebellious young soldier who discovers he’s the unlikely savior of humanity.” Plus, angels with swords and metal, bullet-deflecting wings, apparently.
The show stars “Buffy The Vampire Slayer’s” Anthony Head, along with Alan Dale, Christopher Egan, Luke Allen-Gale, Carl Beukes, Chris Fisher, Shivani Ghai, Rosalind Halstead, and Roxanne McKee.
I guess we’ll find out for ourselves if the actual show is better than this 30-second snippet when “Dominion” premieres on the cable network June 19th.
