And then there was one! NBC’s Constantine is the sole comicbook adaptation on the airwaves this holiday season. Tonight’s “The Saint of Last Resorts” was the first part of a two-part mid-season finale. The strengths at the core of this show – creepy creatures, dark motives, and heartfelt character connections – continue to deliver, but I fear that the show’s occult focus prevents it from finding a broader audience. If you enjoy Constantine like I do, and if you like its exploration of religious mythologies from various cultures, then make sure to talk it up while you have the chance. I mean, where else do you get to see human fruit bleeding as it hangs from a tree, and an ancient vampire demon fleeing into the sewers with a blood-filled chicken?
