DEMONS season one
DEMONS season one
this show is really a male BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and it knows it. It is predictable and comfortable but within that, it plays with what we think and what we watch. It's enjoyable despite all of that. Going the type of BUFFY's Giles, Luke's guardian "watcher" is Rupert, a rough, tough, American who get directly involved in the action. Ruby, the female Xander, takes no guff from anyone and gets her own back at others who try to make her feel useless and silly. She's my favorite chraracter thus far. She takes alot and puts up with a lot. Mina Harker, that name just evoked Dracula and she seems to hold mysteries as yet untouched in the pilot. Mina is an interesting character and it will be interesting to see how she develops and help the others in the action...it appears she really won't at first...as Rupert has to lead her around but there are mysteries about her that we want the answers and solutions to. The monsters and villains are well made, well done, a bit over the top in BUFFY fashion. And one them does some gross things with his food when he's done chewing or digesting. Rupert should have walked Ruby to her apartment door. Does she live alone? The main baddie is interesting too. And gross, too. In all, this episode delivers the action, the jokes, the over the top villains, the sets are amazing and the location work well done. And Rupert doesn't work in the school library but has his own. There was a movie called YOUNG VAN HELSING or something like that a few years ago, even before that awful VAN HELSING movie with the actor who plays WOLVERINE, Hugh Jackman. It was schlocky but not as fun as DEMONS. And DEMONS is fun. Cooke is a stunning looking lead and with his cast, able to hold this together. I hope it gets renewed. If not we have these six episodes. This ep does the job of introducing it all and it still entertains IMO.
