As of this point, only the first episode has aired. I can only comment on what I've seen. That said, here we go: You'll find that, unlike the movie bearing the same name, this stays truer to the source material. We can expect omissions of certain things and some creative liberties because the original Hellblazer began in the late 80s and this is network television. I can abide this, and expected it. Constantine is the anti-hero that you would expect, assuming you're familiar with the source material. Matt Ryan does a great job in this role and captures the sardonic humor of the character. Glancing at the cast list for season 1, you might recognize many names from the original comics. The first episode was better than I expected. I assumed it would mostly be seeing the viewer up to understand the characters, and, while it did this, it allowed us to get straight to the meat and potatoes of the character and his story. The writers were clever about how they can't show Constantine smoking on camera. Instead, you'll see him idly toying with a lighter and putting out cigarettes that he would have just finished. It's network television. That's about as close as you can get. They didn't stray from the horror and the occult, either. Finally, the season at a glance trailer that played at the end offered much promise. Fans of the comics will recognize some nods here and there, as well.

First episode was fantastic. 9.5/10 (rounded to ten)

Folks who will enjoy this are those that enjoy horror mixed with sharp dialogue and humor. It's very fantastical. Supernatural fans will likely enjoy this, as well.
