'Dominion'

June 19th, 9 p.m., SyFy

Quite possibly the best opening line of any drama in SyFy history: "Twenty-five years ago, God disappeared." SyFy makes a bold return to science fiction (what a concept!) with this bizarro post-apocalyptic romp about a war between human beings and angels. See, after God's exit, two archangels began fighting over the human race – Gabriel led an army of his fellow angels to invade Earth and wipe out our inferior species. But Michael led a human army to fight back. Now humans live in ruined cities like Vega, which turns out to be what's left of Las Vegas. (You'd figure that would be the last place angels would fight about.) Dominion is based on the strange 2010 angels-vs.-humans action flick Legion, with a compelling mix of otherworldly intrigue and shoot-'em-up violence. Whatever Dominion lacks in coherence, which is admittedly everything, it makes up for with audacity.
