I feel like Constantine just leapt whatever pitfall it'd been struggling with. Hot damn.

I've been enjoying it, but (barring the episode with Gary Lester) something about it always felt a little awkward, like the actors were still ironing out their roles, or maybe they were still working on the fit between John and Zed. That's all gone now.

There was a moment when Matt Ryan was standing half in shadow and he turned to face the camera, and I caught my breath because every bit of 'this is a TV show and that's an actor' fell away, and it was nothing but John Constantine right there, in the flesh.

If this is a milestone and the rest of the season falls together like this, then they had better renew the show or else I will go down to NBC's offices, refuse to leave, and drink all their coffee until they agree.

Most of the episodes so far rate "kind of worth a watch," but this one and the one with Gary Lester rank at "Oh my god it's everything I ever wanted a John Constantine TV adaptation to be."
