In the 16th century or so, Raphael Cain's wife was killed by demons and his daughter kidnapped. He swore an oath to kill every demon on earth, and he and his squire Goodwin were given immortality to complete his oath. Now, in the 20th century, Cain and Goodwin team up with a para-psychologist to defeat the demons once and for all.Written by
The show was heavily critiqued as being taken from the Highlander TV series. With multiple plot points and characters being copied from that show. Till this day it is sore point with the Highlander show's dedicated following. See more »

You can say that again.
You demon beasts.
Go on, give us more.
You're wicked and evil.
I love it, keep going.
No, you're worse than evil. You're...wevil! Pure wevil!

If you like mindless entertainment, this show's for you.
Whether or not you will like this show will depend completely on whether you watch television shows purely for entertainment and mindless escapism, or whether you watch shows for intelligent scripts that make you think and characters with depth. If you want the former, watch this show. If you want the latter, Highlander (as others here have already mentioned) is a far superior show. Personally, I prefer the latter.
In my opinion, the only redeeming quality to this show is the occasional appearance of highly talented British actor Dominic Keating as the daemon "Mallos", the title character's nemesis. Mr. Keating's performance is almost disturbingly seductive, his wickedness intense yet understated, as if being tightly reigned in under massive self control. However, hoping to see if "Mallos" will appear on the show is not enough reason for me to tune in to watch it. Luckily, Mr. Keating will be starring on the new Star Trek series "Enterprise" this Fall, so I'll be able to watch his impeccable acting regularly then.
Bottom line ... If you want to laugh, watch this show. If you want to think, watch Highlander. If you want to see Dominic Keating, watch Enterprise. ;)
