Yes darling. I just found out about it, in my Netflix. It is real dark urban fantasy and it really appeals to me. But then again we already knew that I'm into these sort of series. Even my first writing reflect this reality. I'm just fifteen minutes into the first episode and I already want to write about it.Anyone else watching this?
She isn't doing so bad, I think.Like the plot, not keen on the MC, yet. Four episodes in, and the writers haven't really given her a chance to shine...
There was a lot irrelevant stuff that leaving out would have made the show better. It was watchable, not brilliant.I'm not sure it was aimed at YA (although the definition of that term is one of those arguments) but yes, it was aimed at a younger audience than me, with the beautiful bodies, music and pop culture. There was also the romance angle, but odd that JC just completely disappeared. I hadn't thought about the lack of people dying. Considering the sheer amount of knife and sword stabbings, together with people actually being taken to Hell, you would expect at least one death other than Shannon.
Simon Barry was also behind Continuum, and I see some similarities, and a reason I watched, though I liked that much better. I'm not a big superhero fan, even superhero nuns!
I have a problem with the Jillian Salvius plot. First, the corporate head who is doing it all for their child is becoming a trope. DEVS or (was it Deus) had the same plot with a dead daughter. What does her company actually make (other than grand press statements)? How are the shareholders going to get their dividends if there is no actual product, but millions being spent on all this hi-tech? I'd be interested to see her business plan.
Secondly, the Stargate... I mean the gate, will obviously open up a portal to Hell, when it finally works. Everyone can see that. She is an intelligent woman, how does she not see that? I say Stargate as a joke, but that very early scene when they uncover the shield at a dig in ancient ruins could have been lifted straight out of Stargate.
Then, when you also add that many of the characters are cardboard cutouts, taken straight off the shelf of some superhero series character library, and I do think the show was a bit derivative.
Anyway, I did watch it to the end and what an ending! I didn't expect them not to find the bones of Adriel under the Vatican. There was quite a turnaround in that episode, and there is a huge cliffhanger left. I must say that I never saw the Father Vincent thing coming. Maybe if they had made this series six episodes long and cut out all the teenage angst then it would have been ten times better.
Antagonist. Not the main one, but from within the order. Somebody had to challenge Ava because she would not have slotted in the hierarchy. But the problem with Lilith is that she is supposed to be posh, but she ain't. Instead she's a wooden character with a singular mindset. Yet, all the girls manages to surprise me... in a good way. When I think that I have it figure, they do something unexpected and they aren't afraid of using harsh language.It is unclear to me what Lilith's role is, if it is Lilith and not something else with Lilith's shape.
Yes, I agree. But that's the Lilith before she got killed. What about the returned Lilith?Antagonist. Not the main one, but from within the order.

I have not seen it yet, and I look forward to it.What about the returned Lilith?
I like this idea. It is a good one, but it also opens up the multiverse. Not just celestial realms. Do we want to go there?I see it as another dimension, some of the creatures from that realm look to us as demons. My theory is the demons are the law enforcers
