Well, Damien finally brought out all the toys to play, but it’s too little, too motherfucking late.
Actually, add mother fucking (well, surrogate mother) to the list of things Damien didn’t do in time.
There’s no way in Hell this thing is getting renewed.
Oh, Bates Motel. You’re not a gentle dance partner, are you?
Last year’s The Returned paired with Bates Motel and didn’t ever get off the ground, despite a fantastic cast and strong source material. But, I will admit, it was oppressively dour and riddled with baffling, bizarre character reactions to crazy supernatural shit.
So it’s not a great sign that Damien, from this first episode, at least, is oppressively dour and riddled with baffling, bizarre character reactions to crazy supernatural shit.
And they haven’t got Jeremy Sisto.
