Constantine

I don't think I'd even heard about this until right now.  The fact that it's on network doesn't fill me with confidence, somehow Constantine + NBC... I'm wary.

But this picture... this sort of fills me with nervous confidence.

I've been hearing about it. I'm on the fence. I'll pay attention once it arrives.

Don't be too quick to blast NBC. I was VERY SKEPTICAL about them handing Hannibal and they have blown me away with their ability to really push the envelope and spend money on the series. It looks amazing and is one of the best shows on the air right now. In years past I would probably have felt the exact same way as you do. But because it looks like they are making an extra effort to re-brand themselves, I am more than willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

John Constantine Can’t Smoke on Network TV


Look. I don't smoke. Never have. Actually hate the idea of smoking in general and when people blow their second hand smoke in my face, it's cause for a confrontation that usually doesn't end well. With that said, I'd like to point out how so far up their own asses NBC has. The ratings system in general is just clueless about what is and isn't appropriate. We can get shows like Hannibal that slaughter people left and right and we can get shows that push the envelope of sex on TV. But smoking, that's where they draw the line on standards? Really? WTF! I'm on the side of the show-runner and the character in general. If it's a vital image of what people associate with the character, then I'm all for allowing them to keep the integrity of the character by showing him smoking.

That is rather mind boggling. Something else must be going on.

Wish they would clearly state what that network 'regulations' say.

Hell, let him show smoke and drive home the point of cancer.

I have to ask the question… would any reviewer at comic-con say it sucked if it really did?


Oh.... and more cleavage please

Yeah, I've seen a few TV shows and Movies that got tore up by the audience. I think Comic Con audiences that attend whatever screening are going to be even more critical of what they are watching. You are asking them to wait in line for 4-5 hours just for the sneak peek. If it sucks and you've wasted all that time that you could have been doing something else, you're more than likely to give a true opinion of said show or movie.

And yes, more cleavage goes a long way.

But isn't there a difference from the people's review you posted vs. an average joe/fan.

That review from them, would have more credence than just anybody's youtube or tweet.... right?

So you're asking if those from IGN would skew more to positive because it's Comic Con? There was another post...maybe this one, or it's in another thread (maybe The Flash) where they were less than enthusiastic about what they had saw. But they had prefaced their video that it wasn't an "official" review because it was just a first cut of the Pilot episode and that they were still tweaking it. I think IGN overall has a very solid track record when it comes to honest reviews.

That's good to hear. That takes time to build trust and confidence and say what you mean.

NBC Not Ordering More Constantine: Season 1 Episodes - IGN News

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2G87CzpIrCE&list=UUedmzK8pHrU57erP9_oYNJg


I watched the first two episodes as they aired and it was okay. There wasn't anything within the show that made it a must-watch series for me. It was a decent show. It's not bad by any stretch. I would have stayed with it, but On Demand on my Roku, particularly for this show has been extremely dodgy. They haven't even bothered to upload the other 3-4 episodes that have already since aired. As for this show surviving to a 2nd season......it's not gonna happen, no matter what kind of numbers it pulls in for the remaining episodes. But then again, I said the same thing about Extant and Under The Dome.......
