It's called Dominion. And it's awesome. :D
I am so hooked on this darn show, it's got me making fanart and even writing fic again!
If you've not watched it, it's based on the movie Legion, starring Paul Bettany, in which the archangel Gabriel tried to destroy humanity and the archangel Michael chose to try and save humanity by protecting a particular child, who is destined to save humanity. Dominion is set 25 years after the events of the movie - mankind was decimated in the War of Extinction, 25 years previously, in which the lower angels joined with Gabriel, possessing human bodies (the humans call those possessed by angels "eight-balls" as their eyes turn completely black) to wage war on mankind. With Michael's help, the human's won the war, fighting off Gabriel and his armies, and those remaining now live mostly in fortified cities such as Vega (previously Las Vegas) where Michael now lives, watching over humanity... and, as it turns out, the Chosen One, who, unaware of his true nature, has grown up to be a soldier in Michael's elite archangel corps - Alex Lannon.
The show follows not only Alex's journey of discovery as his status as the Chosen One is revealed, but also the political machinations of the ruling elite of Vega, Michael's attempts to protect and to train the Chosen One, and Gabriel's ongoing plotting to destroy humanity/turn the Chosen One to his own purpose.
There's a lot of ridiculously gorgeous people in this show and gratuitous amounts of epic wing porn. As per usual, when I get hooked on a show, there's one character in particular that I fall for and this time around it's the archangel Michael, as played by Tom Wisdom.
I mean, just look at the guy: :D
Not only is he rather gorgeous (and the showrunners, bless their hearts, seem to manage to find reason to have Michael shirtless at some point in nearly every episode :D), but the character is sooo intruiging. He's deliciously enigmatic and stoic, definitely feels strong emotions but seems to struggle to understand human emotions, has a slightly androgynous feel (and yet has a penchant for human women and has been known to indulge in the occasional orgy!), and Tom Wisdom portrays him beautifully, giving him an unnatural stillness that gives him a real quality of "otherness", of being not quite human. He's also a bad-ass fighter using dual swords... and did I mention the epic wingporn?
In short... I love this character and I love this show (and hey, we got Michael whump just 3 episodes in! :D). If you haven't watched it yet, I highly recommend you give it a go - it airs on Thursday nights on SyFy in the US (not showing outside the US yet). Episode 7 (of only 9 in the first season! Eeep!) airs tonight and the mythology is just starting to get rrreeally interesting and events are rushing towards a climactic finale. The show has yet to be renewed and I, and many other Dominion fans, are desperately hoping for a second season!
