This week on Constantine (NBC, Fridays, 8/7C) we finally learn what’s the deal with Chaz – John’s seemingly indestructi8ble best friend. Also, a new Claymation take on Constantine, plus a look behind the scenes on last week’s The Saint of Last Resorts, Part 2. Three cool Constantine clips abide just beyond the jump.

Tonight on NBC: Grimm and Constantine!
It’s taken a while longer than I expected for Constantine (NBC, Fridays, 10/9C) to find its feet – and it may be too late, but the show is final beginning to live up to its potential. Meanwhile, Grimm (NBC, Fridays, 9/8C) has carried on with its usual aplomb, bringing unexpected scares and heart from all direction. Tonight, […]
Constantine: A Feast of Friends – More Scares, More Consistency!
NBC’s Constantine showed a lot of promise – even if the premiere (which we gave a B) was long on mood but short on scares. The intervening three episodes ranged from moments of genuine scares and wit to moments that showed more than a hint of softening from the comics – necessary for it to […]
Matt Ryan Discusses “Constantine” Being a Smoker & Other Season 1 Goodies
His soul is damned to hell, he’s been locked up in a mental hospital and demons insist on possessing people to pay him a visit on here on Earth. Aw that’s just a typical day at the office for a seasoned demon hunter like John Constantine. Matt Ryan (No not the Atlanta Falcon’s football player. […]
Constantine Captures the Essence of the Comic!

Based on the series pilot, I’d have to say they got it right, for the most part (network policy on smoking means some creative workarounds). NBC has […]
Behind The Scenes: Constantine!
John Constantine is piece of mystical work. He’s rude, callous, and not quite the master of the mystic arts his card makes him out to be – though he still may be all that stands between us and Hell taking over the Earth. In advance of the Constantine series premiere, NBC has released a look behind […]
Meet NBC’s John Constantine!
NBC has released the first photo of Matt Ryan in character as John Constantine. The series is based on the DC Comics character who first appeared in Swamp Thing in 1985. He is not a typical hero, being sarcastic, cynical and reluctant – but if he absolutely has to, he can get the job done. […]
Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior Is Already An Improvement On The Original Recipe!
When I first heard that Criminal Minds was getting a spin-off, I was appalled. I remain baffled that a series that is so misogynistic could be so popular. If the screener for Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior [CBS, Wednesdays, 10/9C] is any indication, it is a better show – at least in terms of misogyny, or […]
