March 8, 2016
Damien aims for epic darkness, but it only achieves blundering, dour obscurity.

This is a show almost completely without humor, an attitude that might get you through a two-hour movie but can wear a watcher out over the course of a TV series.

Bad writing, funny direction, deafening music - in the end, none of it is enough to kill the "Beast." It does rise, although not to the potential of its concept.

A&E's Damien joins the (Omen) franchise, offering spooky and violent moments through its first five episodes, but struggling to find the narrative momentum necessary to work as an ongoing series.

Mr. James, who resembles a less intense Frederick Weller, makes a lightweight Antichrist.

The horror doesn't work, the characters aren't defined and the plot is ludicrous.

Sometimes it's hard to think how a series will pull off a second season, but it's hard to fathom how Damien will pull off a second episode.

Whatever Damien is, it ain't The Omen.

Despite coming from Glen Mazzara of The Walking Dead, Damien is just dreary.

At its core, though, the show feels hollow, in part because of the waffling approach to its central character.
