Demons: Season 1 Reviews

October 21, 2019
Demons is a huge disappointment.

This British Buffy remains enjoyable despite some nonsensical plotting and teenage stropping, but it's all fairly standard fang-fighting fare.

[Philip] Glenister is atrocious as the hero's otherworldly teacher, but give him a pass; he's saddled with ridiculously familiar dialogue.

Production quality is decent, though some of the special effects can be a bit cheesy. As with most genre television productions, makeup and costume effects beat out the show's CG.

Saturday nights are so devoid of quality programming that Demons could easily be what you're looking for but if it's your first foray into the work of BBC America, you should know that it's far from the best they have to offer.

Lacking the subtext, satire and snappy talk that made Buffy golden, Demons has little on its mind past raising spooks and smiting them, but it does a fair enough job of that.

While Demons doesn't completely set itself apart from the pack, it's certainly better than average.

Demons is an undistinguished jaunt into the paranormal, with a bland young stake-wielder at its center - he of the piercing eyes and Harry Potter hairdo, who must balance passing his driving test with thwarting ancient evils.
