    I think this looks all right, I am really sad that he isn’t smoking like a chimney, and that’s probably network interference, as well as the culture we live in, but that’s another day’s discussion. I think the guy has the look and general attitude right.

    This looks promising.

    I never read the series, only know the character from other guest appearances and cross over events. So as an ‘outsider’, I think the trailer did exactly what NBC wanted, peak my interest just enough to say, “That looks kind of promising”

    The trailer itself was inconstant in tone and story, but the individual scenes showed a lot more promise.

    This looks real interesting. I’ve never read any Constantine but I love supernatural stories.

    Looks fantastic and although I did like the movie this character seems to be much truer to the flavor of the comics.

    Looks like fun, but there’s still a voice in my head whispering: “Imagine what this would have been like on FX, HBO, AMC, Cinemax or even Showtime”. Answer: Probably a whole lot more than just “fun”.

    But obviously I need some fun in my life if I keep reacting this negatively to every single network offering, it’s a win/win anyway I watch and enjoy it or ignore it’s existence if it’s awful. It’s just this whole..”imagining what could have been..” problem I suffer from.. I’m obviously spoiled. There was a time with no comicbook films or TV, now there’s an announcement every month…

    I do sort of wish all these shows weren’t all on ABC, NBC or Fox though..At the very least Constantine has to be a bit more punk than Jay Leno’s garage, ya know? But people like Blacklist and Hannibal so what the fuck do I know right?

    Actually I like Hannibal as well but not in the way I think I’m intended to.. I kinda watch it the same way I would watch Arrested Development. It’s hilarious.

      Speaking of Hannibal, nice cameo there at the beginning. Frederick Chilton even more omnipresent than Amadeus Arkham it seems these days.
