I’m curious. What exactly did he (and you) hate about it? I know it couldn’t be the choice of actors, seeing as Matt Ryan is spot-on, nor could it be the special effects. That’s probably the sexiest opening I’ve ever seen. Hell, it couldn’t even be the lore because I seem to recall you mentioning that you were going to put Hellblazer on your PTR. So, what on Earth could possibly turn you off from the show? shocked

Ugh. Ryan doesn’t want lung cancer. lol

And it’s not like he didn’t light one or two up every episode either...

DC Fags are the worst type of Fags.

They’d rather you have Lung Cancer so you can enjoy a tiny tidbit of Constantine’s quirks

It seemed like a run of the mill supernatural show that NBC is basically known for making. Matt Ryan was amazing as Constantine(I picture his voice every time I read Ennis' Hellblazer), but the show just felt so restrained.

Maybe if it was on FX, it’d really bring in that edge that the show so desperately needed.

EDIT: Ah, genre procedural is the word I’m looking for. It felt like Constantine had a weird crossover with CSI with just how by the numbers it was.

I can understand disliking it because it’s a procedural (but then again, every non-reality show out there barring, like, Seinfeld is a formulaic procedural) but “run-of-the-mill”? Hardly. Even if you ignored its source material, it seemed much more distinct than any other supernatural horror show. Right up there with Supernatural, in fact.

I have no problem with procedurals. But then again, the only “good” procedural I’ve ever seen was Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, which had some of the best written episodes ever, episodic or not.

And Memphis Beat was also more distinguished than its fellow colleagues on cable TV, but that doesn’t make not “run of the mill”, which it was.

And Supernatural is shit so...

I dont mind that. I`m just saying for some reason I see a lot of complaints regarding that.

I think its just people who decided they will hate it before it even started.

This is more based on Lucifer Morningstar of DC rather than the actual Devil of Judeo-Christianity.

Feel like they’re paying homage to this particular scene in Sandman

Supergirl is going to fail.

If it was on the CW and had the benefit of being part of the larger universe they are making it might have done okay.

But its just not going to work as a stand alone.

It doesn’t look like it’s gonna be a good year for TV post-True Detective season 2 sad.

I’m pretty sure DC Fags only care about Batman and probably never heard of Vertigo.

“Who the hell is Constantine? Are you talking about that 2005 film with Keanu Reeves? Hey, this guy ripped off Castiel!"
