Trivia

Jim Corrigan is a character from the comics who made his debut in More Fun Comics #52 (February 1940). Known as a firm, near brutal police officer, his ways sparked some rival gang members to have him killed. Instead of dying he became the "earthly" recipient of The Spectre which is known as an avenging spirit or a mystical embodiment of God's wrath who uses its near omnipotent powers to fight evil.

Goofs

The way young Jimmy is holding that revolver, if it had been a real .45 with real bullets in it, he'd have ended up getting hit in the face from the recoil as it went off. See more »

Quotes

Papa Midnite: What is this spell?
John Constantine: Relictum spiritum expurgationis. We bless each corpse, bring them back to your ritual and burn them. Should release their souls from this plane.
Papa Midnite: I don't like it. It's sloppy. You're like a child with your father's spell book.
John Constantine: The only magic my old man ever did was making a pint disappear.

Potential Rises
22 November 2014 | by SpoodermanDerpSee all my reviews

"Danse Vaudou" is the show's big statement that it has great potential.

The episode introduces us to intriguing supernatural occurrences in which ghosts are going around on a killing spree. In order to stop this Constantine must make a truce with Papa Midnite. Constantine still has that charm of being this arrogant, easy-going and all around cool personality that has been manipulating us since the beginning of this series. Zed and Chas seem to be of such good use to the narrative and fairly glad they're there to be companions and actually be useful to the narrative. The episode treats us with fantastic and gory visuals that are frightening to see. Constantine's high point has always been the scary and frightening imagery and it was excellently depicted in the episode. As for the plot, it's really an engaging one. Lately people have been complaining on how boring or bland the show is. But judging from last week's episode and this one, the show is almost at it's feet. Overall an enjoyable ride with intriguing stuff to be explored for future episodes. Will be expecting more from the show.

+Characters are well rounded and handled well in the show, +Excellent and Scary Visuals, +Engaging Plot, +More stuff to be later explored, +A show showing more and more potential.

Verdict: 9.0/10
