    Its not far from the comics and it is nice when they do an episode which is clearly pulled straight from the comics (like the one with the murderer that marries girls by “giving them a ring” around their throats). It appears to be lacking the presence of Swamp Thing at this point (which is a little disappointing) and there to too much chit chat with angels and Constantine appears to be very competent which I never really got from the comics – I always got the impression he knew some stuff but basically made it up as he went along.

     

    Lindsay and I have watched it all and at this point it is decent for the quality of TV over here but they have all but reduced it to the level of a procedural. There is a spooky problem, let us investigate the spooky problem, the XXX is the cause of the spooky problem, we need X, Y and Z for the solution, now we have X and Y we can make do with Q for Z, end of spooky problem…

     

    They need to take these actors and make movies based around the 10 collected graphic novels 🙂 That would be better 😀

    Has it been renewed? I thought it was the one DC TV adaptation that didn’t…

    Ah yes, because the XXX is so often the cause of spooky problems. 😉

    He is actually Pencil Monkey Wrangler with a million monkeys chained to pencils churning out comics for him.

     

    On the original point I enjoyed the series. It could have been better but I liked the portrayal of Constantine. I do think that the point of him seeming more competent is accurate though.

    “Chained”?

    …Umm, yes – of course! That’s totally a reliable way of fastening simians to writing implements, and absolutely what I would do, if I ran a monkey drawing sweatshop. emoticon_ShiftyEyes.gif
