A Dark Pit
Let's face it, while sci-fi is a genre uniquely suited for telling compelling stories, a lot of it is pretty dark and depressing.
From zombie apocalypses to bleak, dystopian futures, watching most sci-fi won't leave you feeling much hope for us as a species.
That's a problem.
We need to see more scenarios in which we not only survive, but thrive, overcoming our collective faults.
Today, sci-fi is long overdue for an infusion of hope and optimism.
Beacons Of Hope
In the new web series We Are Angels, angels have landed on earth to find specific charges who are in the grip of excruciating suffering.
They come as beacons of hope, and the series follows their journeys as they contend with human sorrow as well as dark forces opposing their mission.
Not Touched By An Angel
Written and directed by Aaron Garcia, this series is not a rehash of Touched By An Angel.
These ethereal beings don't suddenly appear preaching platitudes coated in self-righteousness.
Instead, it is their very presence that brings strength and comfort.
Shot in high definition, the show is a feast for your eyes. Colors pop off the screen. The cinematography has the crispness of an early Spring morning.
The musical score by John Koutselinis is lush, and appropriately dramatic.
The opening narration of the premiere episode is beautifully written, accomplishing its task of introducing this world of light and shadows.
