Hey, Id like to say a Big Hello to everyone on this forum. I'm a huge Constantine fan and have been for a long time. The series is one of the best comics I've read ever. I was introduced to John when I saw the Keanue Reeves film way back in the day. After that, I learned about the Hellblazer series and got super deep into it. The movie stunk by the way and so did the TV show.

When NBC announced they were doing a show, I got super stoked. I counted down the minutes til I could see the first ep. I even resisted watching the leaked pilot. The first episode was even worse than the movie. I know there are a few people out there who liked it but... the writers didn't know what they were doing. Anyhow this is turning into a rant and I don't want it to.

What I want to say is that I'm excited to be able to connect with other Constantine lovers. So hi! :)

I think I liked both the film and TV show more than you did, but "the writers didn't know what they were doing" is actually a pretty decent summary.

I'd replace "know" with "decide," though. They never decided what the show would be, so it was pretty much just a generic mish-mash. While Hellblazer certainly may contain traces of pastiche, its main distinguishing feature is its voice. The show had none.

I'm not a fan of the show either, but it's still a shame it didn't catch on.

Hope you like it here, everyone's nice. Don't forget there's lots of get to know you type threads.
World shut your mouth.

Hey! Did you watch past the first episode? I thought the show really found its feet around episode 4 or 5.
