PiercingMetal Thoughts: This looks interesting, and seemed to be a cross between “Supernatural”, “Preacher” and “Lucifer” to me but since I don’t have Amazon Prime I will not be able to watch it. Truth be told I don’t see myself ever getting Amazon Prime and am starting to feel that all of these different streaming services are playing against each other in detriment to the fans that might enjoy a majority of this stuff. Right now I am holding down a Netflix and Hulu account on top of the pricey Spectrum cable bill so I’m essentially missing anything on DC Universe, CBS All Access and this. Anyway, I’ve gotten off target and wonder what you folks who are subscribers think of this trailer. The show will premiere in May so has this convinced you to give it a go? Chime in down below.
