The Messengers “awakened” last week, and this pilot about angels who have to save mankind from the impending apocalypse started pretty intriguing – emphasis on pretty. Before the review of this week’s episode, let’s give a little pilot recap.

A meteor-like something crashes into Earth and the shockwave kills five people, who then come back to life with angel wings you can only see in a mirror. Peter (Joel Courtney), comes back and stands up to his bully, not realizing his new strength and kills him. Erin (Sofia Black-D’Elia), heals her daughter’s wounds, then steals her out of the hospital, away from her violent father. Vera (Shantel VanSanten) meets the devil (Diogo Morgado), who promises to bring her to her stolen son if she does a favor for him. Raul (JD Pardo) carjacks Erin, but her daughter is soft on him. And Joshua (Jon Fletcher), goes from being a run-of-the-mill televangelist, to one who knows the hellfire and damnation truth. Oh, and gross to his dad getting Joshua’s wife pregnant.

It’s time to try a new show! The Messengers premiered Friday night on The CW. It’s got 3 pros and 1 con as far as I can see.

Pro – Pretty actors/actresses with familiar but not too familiar faces.
Pro – It’s about angels who have to stop the coming Apocalypse. Hello? I have to try it.

Con – Airs Friday nights, a slow tv night. Hell, it’s a slow night for us too.
