Husband said it exactly

"It is like Buffy, but with a male lead."

Yep, that just about describes the basics of the BBC show Demons. I have only watched two episodes....and I was wondering why I was just not that impressed.....then he said it, and the light clicked on.

I have seen this before...Joss already covered it the story in Buffy. It is different, and definitely a bit darker, it takes place in (rainy) London and not (sunny) California, and has little humor. (And is sometimes seems to go so far as to take itself too seriously.)

Don't get me wrong, I like it, just not that original so far. The coolest thing I like is that one of the characters is this priest that has lived in a old church for 100's of years - how did he do that? He is a zombie. Really? A zombie priest...that made me smile.
