Reading reviews you can see a sharp division of opinion. So should you watch ITV's Demons and why is an American commenting on this show? As a fan of British Cult television I have to say I was a bit skeptical. I mean Joseph Hill Whedon's popularity and influence on British science-fiction and fantasy is all over Demons. Never having been a big fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel or the more recent Supernatural (and yes I know Supernatural isn't by Whedon but it sure as hell is inspired by Whedon)I have never understood the need to imitate that formula. Demons like Supernatural isn't a bad show just it makes me feel like its gotta long way to go. The ideas are sure as hell there: were-hyenas in hoodies, ancient demons, rat men who like to experiment on people(shades of Douglas Adams), and next week we get VAMPIRES (not a surprise with the Bram Stoker angle).But what isn't there is time. What I mean to say is that ITV has once again refused to whole heartedly get behind this show (no doubt afraid of risking a flop)and it shows in the way the show is constructed. Six episodes is simply not enough episodes to string a nuanced story on. Which is too bad for Demons because what I see I do indeed like. Demons is not a bad show but neither were Buffy, Angel, or Supernatural.Demons is promising but it has a ways to go to being great. And by the way Philip Glenister's American accent rocks!
