HI! So last week I forgot to include one of my sister’s Netflix deep dives because … well … I’ve been a little distracted, I guess. I’ll try to be better about including them:
Cards on the table: I love shows about the paranormal, but what I love even more? Mexico City. So Diablero, a story about a demon hunter in Mexico City, who finds himself helping a priest whose choices ten years ago may have brought back the first angel to appear in years? This is my television crack.
This show will fill the void for any fans of Supernatural wondering what they will do in the absence of the Winchester Brothers. Siblings with a daddy complex? Check. Missing mother who has her own long history with the unexplained? Check. Existential questions like “Where is God? Will Angels ever return to us?” Check.
Plus, a demon summoner who uses Mexican Rock Music to control her literal demons with an amazing soundtrack familiar to those of us slightly obsessed with Mexico? Perfect.
Check out Diablero, enjoy the theme song from Cafe Tacuba, and see if those pangs of Winchester withdrawal don’t subside a bit.
