    Even as a guilty pleasure, the series requires a willingness to suspend concerns about logic, and embrace the elaborate plot entirely on its own terms, ignoring the sizable gaps in coherence as the opener races through its setup.

    Syfy's latest drama, Dominion, may be one of the dumbest, worst-acted, most poorly written series I've seen in ages. In no way should this encourage you to tune in hoping to rubberneck this bit of awfulness in hopes of creating some kind of new drinking game.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    It's a lot of exposition to get through, and that's just what writer Vaun Wilmott and director Scott Stewart, the latter of whom also worked on "Legion," do--they get through it, with way too much talking and not nearly enough bodies exploding into acid.

  • Kyle Anderson

    Only Anthony Stewart Head, nefariously pulling strings as a Machiavellian senator, keeps things from becoming entirely hellish. [20 Jun 2014, p.59]

  • Mark Dawidziak

    Nothing on this futuristic landscape stands out: the performances, the dialogue, the direction, the special effects. The premise is solid enough. Yet everything constructed on this foundation seems to have been fashioned from nothing more substantial than cardboard.

  • Hank Stuever

    SyFy routinely demonstrates that today’s tricks have gotten too easy, which is why Dominion feels like it is unintentionally telling a separate story of a world in which humanity is held captive by quickie CGI.

  • Mike Hale

    When Dominion isn’t preoccupied with filling in its portentous back story, it provides some capably filmed action and a higher grade of acting than usual for this kind of show.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    Maybe the Thursday pilot's portentous whispers in candle-lighted spaces will seem less pretentious and more profound as Dominion moves past initial exposition from a cast trying not to sound like they're from all over the planet.

  • Ed Bark

    Dominion perhaps has the makings of a passable post-apocalyptic tale. But it can also be over-wrought and half-baked, with a premise that never really delivers any of the implied biblical goods.

  • Mark A. Perigard

    As the Chosen One, Egan is blond and bland. Dale and Head do well playing against type. As the Big Bad of the piece, Gabriel appears for perhaps 40 seconds of the 90-minute premiere and is still the most interesting character here.

  • Kate Kulzick

    It still has a lot of work to do, but with care, Dominion has the potential to grow into something special.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Jeff Korbelik

    Dominion is dark, and the angels portrayed here are scary--not the heavenly do-gooders we’ve come to know them as through other media. Based on the pilot episode, good has a long way to go before it can overcome evil--if that’s even possible.

    The Lincoln Journal Star Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Dominion will never be confused with sophisticated TV but in its pilot episode, the only episode made available for review, it’s surprisingly more entertaining and a better yarn than plenty of other Syfy efforts.
