It's a shame the only few bad reviews left here are unrealistically low to the point that they obviously have a problem giving credit where it's due. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but a 1 or 2 rating for a show that clearly is deserving of more only exposes the fact that these people lack the attention span to read a novel or even a comic book all the way to the end. They are likely best suited to read the funnies section in a newspaper and that's about it.
Strange Angel is only 2 episodes in and it's a slow build so far but an intriguing one. If you have any interest in scientific history or the occult, there is more than enough here to keep you interested.
Parsons is a rebel and free thinker at heart forced by societal and financial conditions to maintain a pretense of normalcy for the time being. You really get the sense however that it's all eating at him and he only needs to be presented with the right opportunity to become reacquainted with his true self.
Enter the quirky unpredictable neighbor "Ernest" who lives by his own rules. He's not your typical rebel without a cause however, quite clearly he is driven by a deeper philosophy. On the surface Jack feigns rejection and they clash a little in the first couple of episodes though there's something about him that Jack finds undeniably compelling.
I'm looking forward to seeing where this story leads as Jack is inevitably introduced to Aleister Crowley the infamous British Occultist & Philosopher. This will be where things get interesting and the story will truly take off.
