Reviews thus far have been mixed with regard to the pilot for NBC’s “Constantine,” but we figure most shows get off to a bumpy start so we’re much more interested in what happens with the series in Weeks 2, 3, and beyond. In any event, we still have to sit through said pilot, entitled “Non Est Asylum,” this coming Friday night, and here’s a sneak peek to whet our appetites.
“Constantine” Episode 1.01 – “Non Est Asylum” (10/24/14; 10-11pm)
SERIES PREMIERE – JOHN CONSTANTINE TAKES ON A RISING DARKNESS AS HE FIGHTS TO RECLAIM HIS SOUL – JEREMY DAVIES AND LUCY GRIFFITHS GUEST STAR – Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan) 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 when an old friend’s daughter (guest star Lucy Griffiths) becomes the target of supernatural forces. Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford also star.
