Storyline

Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine is armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and a wickedly naughty wit. He fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to abandon his campaign against evil until a series of events thrusts him back into the fray when an old friend's daughter becomes the target of superhuman forces. Written by Jiilo_Kim

Quotes

John Constantine: You always carpool with the cops.
Liv Aberdine: My friend was killed last night.
John Constantine: Well, I'm sorry to hear that.
Liv Aberdine: [showing him a picture on her phone] I found it on my door. What is it?
John Constantine: The Eye of Horus. It's an Egyptian symbol of protection. Or so they say.
Liv Aberdine: There was a man in my hallway last night. I think he killed Talia.
[John pounds on the car hood, and Chas climbs out of the cab]
John Constantine: Liv, meet Chas, my oldest mate. He made the carving that kept you alive.
Chas Chandler: I'm glad you're safe.
John Constantine: He's not much of a talker, that one.

Alternate Versions

The ending of the original version of the pilot (which was leaked onto the web) differs in a number of ways from the transmitted one, mostly to accommodate the removal of Liv from the series, after the writers decided that she was too passive a character:
  • In the transmitted pilot, the demon possessing the security guard ultimately takes the form of Constantine himself; in the original pilot, he retained the security guard's body.
  • In the original pilot, Constantine asked Ritchie to drive Liv to a crime scene in order to galvanize her desire to help him. In the transmitted version he does it to scare her off, or at least to warn her of the dangers she faces.
  • In the original pilot Liv does not return the amulet to John, nor does she mark on the map where other events are likely to take place.

Great Portents
28 October 2014 | by aegiswiz-accedeSee all my reviews

New series are always a nightmare to launch. What do you do, how do you hook viewers? Constantine does that by packing the first episode with a truck load of back-story and a crew of wheelbarrows hauling out portents, which is a very good start. I've already forgotten who airs this show, I'm sure my internet spies will shortly be sending me a warning which details my sins against that channel even though I watched it on their own website... but I think this one is a keeper. If it is ABC, of course it will be canceled. They hate success for the most part. If it is NBC, it stands a chance, if only because they can stack it between WWW wrestling episodes on the Syfy channel should ratings flounder. Give it a look. It may be the start of something pleasantly fun to watch. I certainly enjoyed it and had those dreadful feelings when occult demons are concerned.
