I think this is a new genre that they're all sort of working their way through it and haven't got all the kinks worked out yet but it's a genre that works for me.

Strong and Moving!
Clever, believable, and super fun to watch. It totally has replay value.
This series is a perfect example of why Marvel is kicking DC's ass all over the place when it comes to tv and cinematic portrayals of their properties. I don't mean to imply this series was bad, the exact opposite actually. I loved this mini series and it had me longing to take all five minisodes, combine them into one, and add on another two hours or so to make it a full movie. The premise behind the series is interesting and has the potential to be a really great full-length film that not only has John kicking demon ass, but getting a really good and interesting look at his backstory that not many people may know about. What really angers me is that shows like this one are regulated to 6-minute minisodes while works of complete idiocy like Batman Ninja and Batman and Harley Quinn are given full movie running times. Even Justice League Dark, which I actually liked, felt like it had been cheapened by limiting it to barely over an hour's runtime. So much more could have been done with it in so many ways.The problem, basically, is DC isn't treating their characters and property with the same level of respect Marvel does with its properties. Even though the majority are live action these days, just look at the differences between Marvel's films and DC's. Look at the levels of anticipation between Justice League and Avengers Infinity War. There was hardly any anticipation for Justice League because you could tell just from its preview and the way it handled its characters in previous films that it was going to be terrible, while the exact opposite is true for Marvel.Honestly, DC needs to focus their attention and effort a lot more on shows like Constantine: City of Demons and Justice League Dark, while exploring bringing characters like Constantine to Netflix where they can really play around with them and their storylines without studio interference, because, without question, DC is losing the multi-media war with Marvel, and losing it BADLY.
I have just watched all of the current 5 episodes and so far I am enjoying what I see. I hope there are more episodes because I can't stand a cliffhanger. I hope John Constantine and Chas Chandler finds a way to save Trisha from Beroul control and probably find a way to fix their past.It is funny that Damian O Hare the voice of John Constantine is work with Matt Ryan the true John Constantine actor. With the great recurring voice talents Laura Bailey as Ash the Heeler and Emily O'Brien as Chas Chandler's wife makes it even. I just hope we get to hear Rachel Kimsey, Jim Meskimen and Robin Atkins Dawns in more episodes if there is any.If you want explore more about John Constantine and his life then this series is worth the watch. Don't miss out just because it is animated there's a lot of blood and swearing in this. See also Freedom Fighters the Ray and Vixen for more animated DC projects from the CW network.
Love Constantine in all it's forms, but please animators pay a visit to London/The UK. Pubs ain't like that and smoking was banned years ago inside.Need an R-Rated live version soon.
This was great but a little disappointing. Each "episode" is barely six minutes long and it ends without any kind of resolution or a cliffhanger. It just stops, abruptly right as the plot is starting to unfold. As a huge Constantine fan I feel it was a little half assed. Maybe they will make more and pick this back up. As for the animation and voice acting and judging the mere content, it's great. Still worth a watch even though it can be done in one sitting.
