Constantine: "Non Esa Asylum" (Season 1, Episode 1)

 

Hellblazer. It's a great play on words, and for those of a certain age, it recalls the sometimes quite memorable foundation stone to DC's Vertigo line of comics. Good writers wanted to do Hellblazer. It's iconic. So what are the odds it'll make an awful TV show?  

By the by, this review is totally fortuitous. I didn't even know this show existed until Friday morning. Still, the original Hellblazer made enough of an impression on me that I felt an obligation to give it a shot. My take in twenty-five words or less? It's got the look but not the soul.
