Review of Strange Angel

Thursdays, 3:00 AM ET on CBS All Access

60 minutes

Strange Angel, a drama series created by Mark Heyman (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”) and based on George Pendle’s book of the same name, explores the dramatic intersection between genius and madness, science and science fiction. The story follows the life of Jack Parsons, a mysterious and brilliant man in 1940s Los Angeles, who by day helps birth the entirely unknown discipline of American rocketry, and by night is a performer of sex magick rituals and a disciple to occultist Aleister Crowley.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Somehow the combination of cults, magic, and science in this show didn't quite create the feeling I was hoping for, but I still enjoyed this. It's super weird and bizarre, mostly in a good way, and I'm interested to see where season two goes.
