Storyline

In the New Mexico desert, scientist Vera Ivanov (Shantel VanSanten) watches in fascination as a mysterious object plummets to Earth and explodes, sending out a shock wave that briefly stops her heart. But Vera isn't the only one affected: she's instantly connected to four other strangers, who also collapse only to miraculously come back to life hours later. Then a mysterious figure known only as "The Man" (Diogo Morgado) comes and offers Vera the chance to be reunited with her kidnapped son, if she helps him with one morally complicated task. Now, this group of strangers might be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture... or causing it. Written by Soumik Ghosh

They didn't get the Message.

They didn't get the Message. I mean the producers and network executives.

This is another messed up series *designed* (so to speak) to appeal in younger audiences. After vampires, werewolves, heroes, originals, 100s, specials, mutants etc. etc. TV producers decided the last couple of years to give ...the apocalypse a go. Soooo Angels it is! This is the story of 5 (and maybe later 7) young reluctant heroes who are supposed to find the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse and stop the devil from ...well...his devilish evil plans.

God is present, but he likes to give strange ...visions and signs (even to his own ....angels) who must collaborate to stop the ...Rapture, (an act of God by definition). You see Rapture is when all true believers (dead and alive) will be taken from the earth by God into heaven. Seems like a good thing. Why God himself wants to prevent his own doing? Anyway...

The actors are all unknown to me and they seem really uncharismatic and forgettable. Except one who looks like a young version of "The mentalist". Vest and all. Their acting is really bad. No uprising stars here, sorry.

The visuals are the usual CGI with the devil having red eyes (sometimes, when the episode cuts to the next scene) and the angels having wings (when they look each other in the mirror), but they can't fly.

The plot is ridiculous in every way. It basically gets down to small detectiv-ish subplots, move there, find that man, prevent that, save this. Small things considering this is ...the Apocalypse.

Oh! And by the way all these happen to the ...U.S. because...well...I don't know...all the righteous people are there ?....or the filming is too expensive to shoot abroad....something like that! .
