    Dominion is dark, and the angels portrayed here are scary--not the heavenly do-gooders we’ve come to know them as through other media. Based on the pilot episode, good has a long way to go before it can overcome evil--if that’s even possible.

    Dominion will never be confused with sophisticated TV but in its pilot episode, the only episode made available for review, it’s surprisingly more entertaining and a better yarn than plenty of other Syfy efforts.

    It still has a lot of work to do, but with care, Dominion has the potential to grow into something special.

    SyFy routinely demonstrates that today’s tricks have gotten too easy, which is why Dominion feels like it is unintentionally telling a separate story of a world in which humanity is held captive by quickie CGI.

    When Dominion isn’t preoccupied with filling in its portentous back story, it provides some capably filmed action and a higher grade of acting than usual for this kind of show.

    Nothing on this futuristic landscape stands out: the performances, the dialogue, the direction, the special effects. The premise is solid enough. Yet everything constructed on this foundation seems to have been fashioned from nothing more substantial than cardboard.

    Syfy's latest drama, Dominion, may be one of the dumbest, worst-acted, most poorly written series I've seen in ages. In no way should this encourage you to tune in hoping to rubberneck this bit of awfulness in hopes of creating some kind of new drinking game.

    Great can believe it almost thought it would be crap but WOW was blown away at how the complex it is and how much I want to know where it isGreat can believe it almost thought it would be crap but WOW was blown away at how the complex it is and how much I want to know where it is all going, great casting as well. Joined metacritic just to write this review as to many good shows dont make it so am joining the reviewers in the hope that these influence the networks. In summary if you like supernatural/star trek like stuff and dont get bogged down in a complex plot you'll love this. Expand
