Storyline

In the New Mexico desert, scientist, Vera Ivanov (Shantel VanSanten) watches in as a mysterious object falls to Earth. It explodes, and sends out a shockwave which briefly stops her heart. But Vera isn't the only one affected: she's instantly connected to 4 others, all of whom had also collapsed, only to come back to life hours later. 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 complicated task. Now, this group might be the only hope for preventing the impending end of civilisation... or causing it. Written by Soumik Ghosh

Mediocre from episode 1, what goes?
10 May 2015 | by kanenasanonasSee all my reviews

Already seen three episodes and stopped.

I gave it a 5 for production value only, there are shows rated 5 that are far better than this. Without any spoilers (apart from ones already depicted on the IMDb description of this series), here's what you get:

Seven young, good looking people (born between 1996 and 1985, with the exception is JD Pardo). These play the angels of the apocalypse.

One young, good looking and fit devil, acting exactly as the devil would do, even getting glowing red eyes.

No ugly, fat, normal people shown ever, even between extras.

References to the rapture, apocalypse and angels but not to (christian) God who somehow, must make ending the rapture a true riddle.

So you'll get twists, turns, unwilling characters without any reason at all.

Neither fiction, neither sci-fi, not even a good battle between good and evil. If you want to find questions (and subsequently answers), watch Carnivàle (2003-2005) instead.
