MY THOUGHTS: Constantine Season 1 Episode 11 "A Whole World Out There"
About the Show
Based on the wildly popular comic book series Hellblazer from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, "Criminal Minds") 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, and he'll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. With the balance of good and evil on the line, Constantine will use his skills to travel the country, find the supernatural terrors that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all.
The cast also includes Harold Perrineau (Lost) as Manny and Charles Halford (True Detective) as Chas.Writer Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist, Dexter) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Rises). Constantine is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
Whoa!! Constantine is definitely not lacking with the horror and suspense elements. These episodes has not disappointed. Yet again, another episode revealing more about Constantine's "friends." John Constantine may come off as aloof, but he seriously does care about his friends...he just has an odd way of showing it. This time, John comes out to help Ritchie's students. I'm also loving the fact that Manny is making more of an appearance now. This time, this episode explores the out-of-body travel into other dimension! Very interesting....
Forgot to mention that the time slot was switched with Grimm which was a good move...in my opinion...since Grimm already has an established fanbase.... Grimmsters would definitely not want to miss an episode. Just thought I'd throw that in there. Oh...and yah, this is also a favorite show of mine.
Back to the show... We are already into the eleventh episode, and I am enjoying the development of characters and story. There is so many directions this show can go...story-wise, now that the rising darkness was identified. John and friends have a lot ahead of them... there are, after all, all those marks on the scry map. I seriously love how Matt Ryan brings the Constantine character to life.
