Dominion – Season One: Blu-ray Review












25 years after “The Extinction War” an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, waged war against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, chose to side with humanity. Rising out of the ashes of this long battle are newly fortified cities which protect human survivors. At the center of the series is the city of Vega, a glistening empire that has formed from the ruins of what was once Las Vegas.

Unfortunately I knew nothing of this show at all so I wasn’t too sure what to expect. Then as I started it up I saw that it was based on the film Legion and my eyebrow immediately raised. Legion wasn’t a huge hit at the box office but it was interesting enough to the point where I thought it was good so I was in when I saw that. I liked the fact that it was set 25 years after the film because it has a tie to it but not so close to where it has rely on the previous story so much. It gives the show a lot more creative freedom to build a world around it and it does it really well. Post apocalyptic settings are always a favorite of mine and this was actually pretty unique in a sense that the place that everyone gathered for salvation is America’s city of sin. I thought that was a nice touch. This season is only 8 episodes but with every one that goes by it progressively gets better and better which in turn makes you want more. There’s something about people living in the world after The Rapture that got me really intrigued. You add warrior angels in the mix and lots of double crossing and you have something that is easily addicting. This is another show that has me waiting to see what’s going to happen in season 2. This is a show worth checking out!

Special Features:

Alternate Extended Episode – This is an extended season finale which in my opinion was better than the standard version.

Deleted Scenes – A few scenes that are available for a handful of episodes. Some are good and others don’t provide to much more to the story.

Gag Reel – I love these! This feature is full of flubs, missed cues and even some mishaps.

Dominion: Season One is available NOW on Blu-ray and DVD from Universal Studios Home Entertainment
