Demons ITV

Anybody watching? I can't say it's particularly dragging me in... Seems kinda like a cheap Buffy knock off, with Buffy as a British teenage guy.
And what's with Philip Glenister with an "American" accent?

^Same here, it didn't really suck me in, but it seemed like it could live up to Primeval's saturday night fluff.

Re: Demons ITV

It's pretty much the same production team as Hex and Merlin (in fact, it was actually shot before Merlin, and Richard Wilson took his Merlin role because he'd enjoyed doing a guest spot on Demons), and stikes me as haivng that same tendency to be enjoyable without ever capturing the elements that made the series it's trying emulate as good as they were.

I forgot about it with all the fuss about the new Dr Who. Luckily it's repeated tomorrow night.

Re: Demons ITV

It was alrite...

Though I think Amanda Tapping and Phillip Glenister should swap shows. Then they can stop slaughtering everyones accents.

I thought it was ok, nothing more than that, but episode 2 did seem promise, and I like the idea of the Last of the Van Helsings. However the break bumper with Demons in green, was so cheap it wasnt even funny.

This has Gene MF'n Hunt in it. I will watch this, no matter how bad it could be.

Re: Demons ITV

really didnt like the use of the "Ruby" song, that was one step too far, plus I thought we had finally gotten past that song appearing on everything.

Re: Demons ITV

I thought the ruby song was a wtf moment hopefully will not get to many of those.

The 'Ruby' song's almost emblematic of a moment where this production team says 'Yes!', whereas a slightly better one would say 'Yes! Oh, hold on, no. Definitely no. Far too obvious.'
Mind you, I did like the understated Star Wars references: the hero's called Luke, then Mina tells him to trust his instincts and shoot blind, and before that someone (the girlfriend?) comments 'I've got a bad feeling about this...'. Nicely done, as in NOT underlined with some cod-John Williams music to push the point home...

I thought it was awful. We managed about 2 minutes before switching. It's as cringeworthy as Primeval.
