Does Constantine's Latest Episode Measure Up To the Comics Its Based On?

Since I first heard about Constantine, I'd hope to see the live-action character's take on problems and plots from the comic that inspired it: Hellblazer. In many ways, episode 4 did not disappoint.

I couldn't disagree more. Twisty's background as a simple-minded clown… added nothing. Since he went crazy and blew his jaw off, he hasn't understood a thing he's done. He was too crazy to make anything he recognized as choices. He was a plot device. Nothing more. » 11/10/14 8:29pm 11/10/14 8:29pm

Is it coincidence, or have you not read Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality? A young, scientifically-minded Harry Potter learns to love the concept of space exploration from an equally-inclined Professor Quirrell. It is superb. » 11/05/14 10:25pm 11/05/14 10:25pm

Doctor Who Needs To Keep Embracing Its Past

So an article was recently posted about how Doctor Who needs to let go of its past. I couldn't disagree more. I mean no offense to James Whitbrook, the author of said article. But Doctor Who has always been about time and history, and those that don't learn from their history are doomed to repeat it. » 11/04/14 5:38pm 11/04/14 5:38pm
