Another comic-based series, this time based on John Constantine. Looks pretty good though, I'm way more interested in this than the Gotham one at the moment.

Really interested in this, love the Hellblazer comics. Shame there is no Keanu Reeves this time round, but I'm really happy to see DC getting some big TV love, they are finally catching up to Marvel in terms of IP quality in media.

That doesn't look particularly good to me at all, I guess you have to be a fan of the comics.

This is a much better looking supernatural TV show IMO, Penny Dreadful:



First ep is floating about somewhere.

Might be worth watching just for the lead, seems like a laugh.

Yeah, I was reading about that Penny Dreadful show the other day, but it just sounds kind of cheap and corny when every synopsis of it describes it as a "psychosexual horror series". I figured anything that has to resort to making up such corny sounding adjectives to sell itself probably isn't going to be worth much

Spot on khel

I saw an ad for the show today and it looks good enough to at least give it a chance.

I didn't read about it anywhere, just saw the cast listing and it had a James Bond, a Bond girl and a Josh Harnett in it so I decided to give it a go.

First ep was promising but you never know with supernatural based themes, some times they go full retard.

She was no where to be seen. That or I missed her. Was a pretty good episode I must say, interested in seeing how they go as Supernatural turned into a crappy TV show pandering to the fangirls.

Constantine looks a bit cheesy, Penny Dreadful looks like it might be alright, good actors too. It's had some nice reviews: http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/05/11/penny-dreadful-is-a-shameless-orgy-of-blood-gore-and-scary-fun.html

Constantine looks like a big meh. Penny Dreadful has piqued my interest though.

I actually liked Almost Human, it certainly had flaws but seemed like it could develop into a much more interesting show. The cast was pretty good as well.

Crisis has been ok as well but I'm getting the feeling they don't actually know where to go with it. I've become a fan of the main female lead, not enough of a fan that I remember her name but I do know she's an aussie.

There sure has been a lot of new TV recently, seems like most haven't made the cut.

I'm more concerned with the cancellation of Almost Human, Dracula and Revolution. Where will I get my dose of futuristic, steam punk vampire, post apocalyptic drama comedy from?


The Michael J Fox show didn't tickle my funny bone.

Oh, if they're wrapping it up that's ok.
I've missed the last couple of episodes and was wondering how much longer that could keep it running for.

Yeah, Almost Human being cancelled sucked, it was pretty cool and it was building some interesting ongoing plots and stuff. Never even got to find out what was over the wall :(

Shame about Community, I was still enjoying it but I know it's been on shaky ground for a while. Parks and Rec only has one season left as well. Only other show on that list I watched was revolution but none of the season 2 to date, found it really hard to stay interested in it so it hasn't been high up my priority list.

On the topic of horror series, I see there's a Rosemary's Baby mini series, I might not get a chance to watch it for a bit but curious to know if it's any good if anyone here watches it.
