“His name was Death and Hell followed with him”-Revelations
Hello Nerdlings! This is a brief review of Episodes 1 and 2.
I…am not sure about this show, yet. This falls into the late spring/summer show lineup for The CW. I have to be honest, after watching the first episode, I had to google/imdb the show. Now I’ll preface that by saying that I didn’t know much about the show except for the trailer I had seen online. I’m going to touch on my thoughts more than a break down of each episode.
The Awakening: Episode 1
This episode was confusing to me. We were introduced to all the main characters and how they became Angels. I didn’t really understand who The Man was or what his role was going to be other than he was evil. I wasn’t sure how they were going to bring all the characters together. But I remained hopeful since this is a new show and summer shows can be difficult.
Stange Magic: Episode 2
Ok! Now we are getting somewhere. I like the racially diverse cast. I’m enjoying their trials and the fact that the characters have zero idea what is going on. I like that the Atheist is honest about her disbelief and is still not really a believer till the end. I’m interested to see how her character develops as I identify with her most. I am pretty certain that the actor who played The Man, aka the Devil, in the pilot episode is different in episode two. I think that the second episode offers more understanding of where this show is headed and what our characters face. You know, the apocalypse.
What you all think? Is this a show you will be following? Am I the only one waiting for Sam and Dean?
