Showalter Network: Airs on NBC, Fridays @ 10p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 14, 2014 This was a brutal episode of CONSTANTINE. And that’s a good thing. From start to finish this was, by far, the ugliest and horrific demon that John Constantine (Matt Ryan) has had to face so far on the NBC show. “A Feast of Friends” is a fitting title because it goes to the core of what the episode was about.

Goyer, Daniel Cerone Director: Neil Marshall Network: Airs on NBC, Fridays @ 10p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 24, 2014 So CONSTANTINE’s premiere episode isn’t entitled “Pilot” for the reason that the Pilot episode is something completely different than what was delivered in “Non Est Asylum.” Hopefully, for the better. CONSTANTINE is based on the comic book HELLBLAZER (that also spawned a movie of the same name starring Keanu Reeves) about John Constantine, a damned demon hunter and master of the occult that fights …Read On »
