Welcome to the thread about the show that's not as good as The Flash but at least it's not as shitty as Gotham. Feel free to discuss Hellblazer here too because that's some good shit right there.

So how bout that Mnemoth, huh? Best episode by far, definitely.

You know I was supposed to watch all these shows...and I've not watched any except for The Flash pilot. But this was my most anticipated of the 3 and I still haven't watched it. I'm bad.

But I'm watching Vikings and then I have to watch Person of Interest, or Oracle will find me and turn me into ice. I'm gonna try to watch this in between though.

Sorry for this terrible first Constantine reply.

I love this show not as much as The Flash but still I really love it and except the fact that John Constantine isn't chain smoking it is pretty faithful to the comics.
Also can't wait till we the Spectre in full costume !

I actually prefer this to The Flash, the special effect are a hell of a lot better for one. I don't know if it's just me but in Gotham it feels really forced when Alfred says British sayings but in Constantine it just feels natural or it's probably just because I can't stand Alfred and his horrid voice.

I haven't watched the latest episode yet but so far I like it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I also still have to watch the latest episode. Its been really good so far... but I can´t say for sure if I like this show better than Flash or Gotham. One thing is for certain,though, Constantine and the Flash are far better at creating new versions of the characters we are familar with, without taking away the aspects of them that we liked when we read the comics.


But I'm watching Vikings and then I have to watch Person of Interest, or Oracle will find me and turn me into ice.


Off topic: Are there anymore people on this forum that have watched Vikings? I`d really like to open a thread about that show...

Spoiler: show
I am really looking forward to season 3.

Catching up tonight. I get so giddy when they mention Liverpool on this show. It's so trivial but I genuinely get so excited about the fact I'm from the same city as Constantine. :oldyella:

Episode 4 is great, man. I think you'll really like it. It's an adaptation of Hellblazer #1 but they actually did a lot of things better than the comic, in my opinion. Particularly Gary Lester, one of the characters I felt got the short end of the straw in terms of characterisation in the comic. There's a lot more redeeming qualities about him in the show compared to the comic, instead of him being a completely tedious fuckup.

Episode 5 doesn't hit the same strides the precedent does, but it's still really damn good.

Also (very minor spoiler for beginning of Episode 5)

I was so fucking surprised and elated to see Midnite on screen. Going to blast through the rest of the episodes tonight so we can talk episode 4. ;)

Well holy shit, that episode was brilliant. Totally agree with how they portrayed Lester here.

If this show gets cancelled then at least I hope they use Matt Ryan in a future project like JL Dark.

I want this so badly. Del Toro needs to move his butt and move forward with that film ASAP.
