At first I didn't really want to watch . but had nothing else to watch .
14 March 2016 | by israelpalmosisSee all my reviews

At first I found myself with nothing to watch I liked . All the siries i like I finished and was looking for something new . Lucifer didn't impress me much and i searched . Then I saw Damien was released, I said "ok lets try this, i probably will stop watching after 5 minutes" . But then in the middle of the 1st episode I said : Finally ! Great beginning, if it continues like this, its fantastic . Damien always was scary, since the movie, And now also in the siries. It will be interesting to learn if he is good, or maybe he is evil ? They started the siries excellent, and it feels like It was written by good writers . So keep up the good work and continue this dark interesting siries .
