    Dominion on SyFy

    Just posted a review of SyFy channel's new show Dominion on my blog

    http://randomthoughts.dndrub.net.

    Check it out, give it a read, and if you watched it, post back here (or reply on that thread) what you thought about it (the show, I mean).

    I'd LOVE to use this on the SBU podcast if you want to record and send it in or give me permission to read it!

    I meant to catch this online but haven't yet. Hard to be motivated since I learned the series acts as a continuation of the movie "Legion". After reading your review it sounds like they are at least being true to their own screwed up source material.

    Here's my review of "Legion"- http://christiangeekcentral.blogspot.com/2010/01/legion-movie-review.html

    I'll record it and get it sent to you as soon as I can. Hope to get it to you this week.

    I just got round to hearing this on the podcast, and not having got the show over here yet, I have to say...

    I kinda like the sound of it. Rather than being put off by the 'God left' intro, I'm intrigued by it; I think it's an interesting premise to explore, from a Christian perspective or otherwise.

    I appreciate that the concept isn't scriptural, but I don't think that matters - it's just a story after all, and unless the storyteller has specifically stated they want the story to be taken as 'Biblical' in any sense other than having the angel Gabriel in it... well, that's where suspension of disbelief comes in.

    I can't offer much of a counter argument to convince you to watch it, because for all I know you may be right and it may suck on every other level; but you might have been a tiny bit harsh to write it off in the first few seconds.

    That's what I think anyway.

    I said if someone else could come up with a compelling reason for me to watch this series I'd give it a chance.

    Mindspike gave me that reason. We talked about it on his podcast over at Critical Press Media. Needless to say, I'm going through with watching it. It's not my favorite show, but it's perhaps not as bad as I originally thought.

    Apparently MS hasn't posted the recording yet. Once I see it comes up, I'll let you know.

    I gave the pilot a try and thought it was pretty cool. How does the rest of it hold up?

    I'm not a fan. It's very similar in style to new Battlestar Galactica.
