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

Wow, Religious plot that is worse than the writers knowledge of geography.
15 May 2015 | by sporkdroidSee all my reviews

I was looking for a new sci-fi series to watch, ended up with this heavy handed religious fantasy with horrible acting and even worse knowledge of geography.

Episode 1: has these new "Angels" that were created after the devil landed on earth as a flaming meteor. On the road to Houston(The 4th largest city in the US), but somehow El Paso was moved in between Houston and San Antonio.

As all the angels some how meet at a Hospital in this rural town of Houston, there is all this talk of the rapture.....

Acting is horrible and I try another episode.

Episode 2: Now in the small town of Houston, the Preachers son and the scientist to and look for a veteran that may have been involved in kidnapping the scientists son. As the scientist does not like this crazy ideas of visions they do not find the disabled veteran soon enough so the devil has him hit by a bus after hustling him out of all his money.

The "Angels" come back together in some run down bar at the end of the episode again. They begin to discuss that there will also be the 4 horsemen as ell. So on Que the son of a preacher man has another vision. This one he saw the first horseman, War, and fitting with this poor line he was of course Muslim.

The only thing worse that the writers basic understanding of the religious symbolism they are writing about is their basic understanding of geography.

I would expect better writing out of a 7th grade creative writing project. I can't make it through another episode.
