Divine: The Series is a beautiful and dark web series with the feel of a graphic novel. Considering that it has a low budget and relies heavily on the generosity of volunteers, it is shining example of what people can achieve when they work together as a team.
With the brilliant minds of Ivan Hayden, Kirk Jacques, Jason Fischer, Misha Collins, and many more fueling the web series, this show truly has a lot of potential. If you are familiar with CW's Supernatural, then these people are not strangers, and it just makes Divine: The Series all the more exciting to watch.
Each of the characters are truly unique, and since it's a new series, you really don't yet know everything that's going on in their heads. This leaves you wanting more because only bits and pieces are revealed at a time. This also leaves plenty of room for character development, which I'm sure will be seen more in the future if the series can create more episodes.
The actors, which include such names as Ben Hollingsworth, Dan Payne, Allen Sawkins, Misha Collins, and Chasty Ballesteros, really give it their all despite only having mere minutes of screen time. With more time to develop their characters through additional episodes, the performances will only get better.
The visuals are stunning, and especially, again, considering how little the show has to actually work with. It is certainly dark and broody, which is just perfect for the troubled clergy and the mysterious Divine (along with his companion). The sets are well-planned and the various forms of special effects also tie everything together.
A great amount of effort goes into everything that is done with the web series, which is why I think that it can really go somewhere if it can get all the support it can. Also, there are subtitles available in English, as well as other languages, which is definitely a plus. This means that many more people can connect with the show, including those with hearing issues. Not many web series I've encountered have implemented this, so it really stands out.
All in all, I think Divine: The Series is a fantastic show with room to grow, and I am looking forward to seeing more episodes in the future!
