MYT THOUGHTS: Constantine Season 1 Episode 12 "Angels and Ministers of Grace"
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.
Now that's what I'm talking about! All the elements that makes this show realistic is all there...but that's just me. I am so loving how each episode reveals more and more of the plot, subplots, and all the characters. This first season of Constantine is turning out to be an awesome intro the supernatural world of John Constantine. This time, this episode involves Manny...yup, our favorite angel is a major presence in this episode. We also see a lot of heart from John when Zed is hospitalized. Awww....but of course, without his sarcastic wit, it wouldn't be John Constantine...would it now?!? Haha!
All I can say is that the cast is amazing! They definitely picked the right people to portray these characters. I loved watching the development of John and Zed's relationship; and this episode revealed how far their relationship has developed...even though John would not admit it. Now that the rising darkness has been revealed, the few episodes before, including this episode, revolved around faith...they are, after all, battling against a powerful darkness. And now, we are seeing all these characters, including Manny, pulling together to fight these battles.
Overall, this was an exciting episode filled with suspense, mystery, and action that was fitting for this supernatural series. I'm not one to get all technical about the show, but I am definitely enjoying watching a show that has brought life onto the small screen to a popular comic book series. I just hope this show doesn't get cancelled. One can hope...right!?!
