Dominion Cast Header

Syfy has certainly broken my heart. One of my favorite shows, a little jewel I discovered just after its first season aired has been cancelled. Dominion, based on 2010s Legion, was set 25 years after angels fell to Earth and warred with mankind – the war that began on Christmas Day, 2016. The Chosen One, Alex (Christopher Egan) grew up protected by the Archangel Michael (Tom Wisdom), who believed it was God’s will. He often fought his own brother, the archangel Gabriel (the delighfully evil Carl Beukes) who wanted mankind destroyed.

Dominion 212-11

Dominion
Season 2 Episode 12: “Day Of Wrath”
Directed by Deran Sarafian
Written by Tom Harthan
Created by Vaun Wilmott
Starring Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Anthony Head, Luke Allen-Gale, Carl Beukes, Shivani Ghai, Christopher Egan
Syfy
Air Date: Thursday, September 24th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week’s Dominion was completely bananas, and the best Dominion I have ever seen. Darkness-infused Gabriel (Carl Beukes) set the Amphora upon Vega, and everyone started hallucinating, except Alex (Christopher Egan). Just another benefit of chosen one tattoos. Everyone pretty much went batshit crazy. Claire saw her baby and a world where she and Alex and Willow (the baby) were a happy family. David (Anthony Head) had a noose around his neck when he was saved at the last minute… by an 8-Ball version of himself. 8-Ball David taunts and torments real David. Arika has a role reversal, and finds herself chained and called 8-Ball by Claire (Roxanne McKee) and Rose (remember Rose?). The picture of her mother almost haunts her, and she almost kills herself. William Whele (Luke Allen-Gale) has visions of Gabriel, Claire, and lastly Alex telling him he is not the chosen one. Late to the party (the Amphora affects angels more slowly) are Noma (Kim Engelbrecht), who thinks her wings are back, to the point where she finds the Amphora and wants to fly away with it, and Michael (Tom Wisdom), who has visions of Noma killing Alex. That made him want to kill her. When Alex finally closed the Amphora, everyone was shaken and regretful.

Dominion
Season 2 Episode 8: “The Longest Mile Home”
Directed by Jeff Renfroe

Created by Vaun Wilmott
Starring Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Anthony Head, Luke Allen-Gale, Carl Beukes, Nic Bishop, Shivani Ghai, Christopher Egan, Alan Dale, Simon Merrells
Syfy
Air Date: Thursday, August 27th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Dominion, we went back (via flashback) to when Gabriel (Carl Beukes) was in charge of a chosen one, namely, his son David. David’s destiny was to save everyone by felling the giant Goliath, which he performed excellently, with a little angel guidance from Michael (Tom Wisdom). But something must have turned Gabriel to the dark side, and it is revealed that the king killed his son, and replaced him with an imposter he could control. All this flashbacking happened while Julian (Simon Merrells) was shock torturing the two brothers. Gabriel sacrifices himself not once, but twice, for Michael – taking all of the shock at first, and then shoving Michael through a door to freedom, when he tries to drag Gabriel with him. I love him. Julian messes with General Riesen (Alan Dale) by showing up with an 8-Ball that has the lower angel who was inside his wife Clementine. Confused? Him too. And me too. Zoe (Christina Chong) agrees to meet with Claire (Roxanne McKee), but David Whele (Anthony Head) mucks it up by ordering a secret failed hit, getting Claire in the leg, which causes a miscarriage. In a comedic, yet horrific turn (the best kind), Alex (Christopher Egan), and Noma (Kim Engelbrecht) find themselves in a huge store, filled with supplies, corpses, and 8-Balls who still think they work there… until they don’t and attack. They are dispatched of pretty quickly, but the mob of 8-Balls outside (one with a chainsaw) don’t bode too well for the plucky duo.

Syfy
Air Date: Thursday, August 20th, 2015, 10:00pm

Last week on Dominion, David Whele (Anthony Head) sticks Zoe (Christina Chong) right into the forefront of a revolution. He writes her a speech to broadcast to the entire city of Vega, but halfway through, she broadcasts her own written from her heart. She is really upset because her BFF Jasper dies, but powers through. So much so that she shoots David in the leg as a warning. Gates (Nic Bishop) intercepts the message to put Claire’s message through, but is put in danger when Arika (Shivani Ghai) passes this along to David. Claire (Roxanne McKee) rewards this insolence with sex. Noma (Kim Engelbrecht) and Alex (Christopher Egan) escape Julian (Simon Merrells) and New Delphi, after Noma rips out her own wings (Ewww!!!). Michael (Tom Wisdom) and Gabriel (Carl Beukes) do not.

Dominion Season 2 Syfy

Dominion is intriguing me. I’ve been seeing clips and trailers for it on Syfy while reviewing Olympus.

Based on the film Legion, it’s a battle of brothers, as archangel Gabriel (Carl Beukes) wars with mankind, while archangel Michael (Tom Wisdom) sides with man, and is holed up in the fortified city of Vega.

Check out the season 2 trailer, as well as the extended trailer below.

Paul Bettany As Archangel Michael In Legion

Sure Syfy Channel has a ton of reality television, but if those inexpensive shows help fluff the network’s budget for a few good scripted genre shows then they can hunt for ghosts wherever they like!

The network’s President, Dave Howe, announced yesterday that they have greenlit a new supernatural series to full season. The show is titled Dominion, and it is a sequel to the movie Legion, which starred Paul Bettany as archangel Michael, Dennis Quaid, Lucas Black, Adrianne Palicki, Tyrese Gibson, Charles S. Dutton, and Kevin Durand as archangel Gabriel.

Read more about the new show from the press release below.

Netflix Review: Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

Netflix Review: Don't Be Afraid Of The DarkDon’t Be Afraid Of The Dark
Netflix Streaming
DVD | Blu-ray
Directed by Troy Nixey
Starring Bailee Madison, Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce, Jack Thompson, Alan Dale, Julia Blake, Garry McDonald
FilmDistrict
Originally Released: August 26, 2011

Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark is a fun horror flick that appropriates heavily from classic horror, fairy tales, and some of producer Guillermo del Toro‘s own films as well. While del Toro handles production and writing duties, direction is capably handled by Troy Nixey in his debut. Connected with some great performances, excellent monster effects, and some outstanding set design and lighting effects, this is a movie well worth checking out.

Effectively a remake of the 1973 TV movie of the same name, Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark explores the line that marks the division between fairy tales and horror stories. The story follows young girl Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison) as she relocates to live with her father, dealing with the difficulty of being a small child in a broken family.
