Very nice
5 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The pilot looked very promising and it just started getting better and better. The story is very nice and the effects are quite good for cable television.

The acting is nice but is not the main point of the show, some characters are not as believable as they should but generally it is pretty good.

Of course I am a little biased since this like apocalypse stuff + vampires + fallen angels and all kind of stuff that I love.

Anyhow if you don't like the genre then don't watch it just because of Del Torro. It is not like super original and incredible enough to make a fan of someone that is not a fan of the genre.
