At this point no. They tease you in the first episode and then claim the network stepped in to explain why its never seen again. I was surprised that male and females did not acknowledge it or even try to sneak a peak when the soldiers showered together
If you get naked around co-workers on a regular basis it becomes routine and boring. After a few months you are no more likely to sneak a peak at them than you would with a sibling or old friend.

Re: Syfy's Dominion

Is the Sci-Fi (SyFy) channel still in business?

This is the channel that renamed themselves after a slang term for a Sexually Transmitted Infection - Syphilis?

Yeah, makes sense.

This series is a sequel to the movie Legion, set 25 years after the film.
Soon as I saw that in the opening credits everything made sense. Legion was shite.

Just watched it and my DVR cut off the last minute or so. Who was the General meeting at the hotel?

Thanks. Any sense as to whether this was a good angel or not? Male? Female?

Re: Syfy's Dominion

I found it a bit lacklustre. I can't see it lasting long as Supernatural is a far better show doing a similar storyline, "chosen ones" are always naff plot points and Las Vegas is a piss poor location.

Plus, why are Angels so pathetic in this show? All they seem to do is move fast and fly - and can be killed very easily by bullets or swords.

Re: Syfy's Dominion

Angels are not soldiers.

God doesn't have anyone to go to war with.

Why would he create soldiers?

They're basically delivery boys, errand boys and messengers. If god actually had someone to fight, then he would have built a solder class of creature to fight for him, but it seems all he wanted was a bunch of attractive nancyboys who say that he is cool while obeying his every whim.

God is a Meangirl.

Imagine if when you were little that your parents wouldn't feed you unless you told them 10 times a day that they were attractive, highly intelligent and generously responsible for everything good in the world but none of the bad.

That's not healthy.

A scenario like that is highly improbable, period. FAIL.
