60 minutes

A war is brewing between old and new gods: the traditional gods of biblical and mythological roots from around the world steadily losing believers to an upstart pantheon of gods reflecting society’s modern love of money, technology, media, celebrity and drugs.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

The series sits in 50/50 territory. Half of it is well written, half of it has good dialogue, half the scenes have good pacing, etc. They need to get it together if they want the atmosphere to kick in and feel immersive. Squeeze out the camp, the drawn out speeches (the needless ones), the cheezy special effects (do it right, darn it, you clearly have the budget) and there is a really strong premise here. I think they'll cancel it before that happens though, as is the trend.
