It is a great series and is very close to the comic books. The actor does an amazing job and overall it is a very entertaining show. I highly recommend anyone interested in John Constantine to give it a watch. It’s only a shame that it is one season only. But the actor and character appears in the Legends of Tomorrow show as well.
I really enjoy this series, i just wish they wouldn't have cancelled it after just 1 season...but we did get somewhat of a reprieve with Constantine showing up on Arrow for an episode...I just wish they would do something else with the character maybe add him to legends of tomorrow or something. As long as they keep Matt Ryan he is the best incarnation of the character...im glad he is voicing Constantine in the new animated Justice League Dark movie
I rank this right alongside Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Smallville as one of the greatest comic book shows of all time. As a longtime Hellblazer fan I can honestly say I that I can't think of a single actor working in Hollywood that could rival the charisma and charm that Matt Ryan brought to the character. Completely unfair NBC cancelled this after 13 episodes and tried brushing it under the table like it was nothing. The optimist in me hopes that one day another station will pick this show up despite its long hiatus and pick up right where we left off.
Dark, Witty and Refreshing (But Sadly Short-lived)
Constantine was the TV series based on the popular Hellblazer character John Constantine, who goes about his business fighting everything Occult-ish, from demons and ghosts to ghouls and other-worldly monsters. The series goes about the character by throwing us in the middle of his adventures (so to speak) here on Earth. It's tame in some of the darker areas the comic created, but overall we get something truly brilliant and refreshing in the wave of shows in the Arrowverse (Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow & Supergirl). But, because of NBC, the series was canceled due to ratings and no one wanted to pick up the show. Hopefully, if sales are continually good for the blu-ray, a network might bring it back. Until then, enjoy the 13 episodes we have of this wonderfully insane character, embodied by the astounding Matt Ryan.
Constantine, one of DC Comics lesser known characters and member of The Justice League Dark, was a great TV series canceled before its time. Actor Matt Ryan embodied the character, lifting Constantine right out of the comics. A must own for any DC Comics fan, or anyone with a a taste for the supernatural.
This series follows John Constantine as he fights off supernatural creatures and demons. It has some comedy. The first episode introduces the main characters. The special effects are top notch. And the acting is great too. If you like the show Supernatural you'll like this too. Give it a try.
