Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 24

When I was a teenager, my favorite comic book was Alan Moore's "Swamp Thing." Naturally, I eventually became a fan of the spin-off, "Hellblazer," about a trench coat-wearing, cigarette-smoking, demon chaser named John Constantine; he also kinda looked like Sting, which was a bonus for this Police-obsessed girl.

Eventually, a terrible movie version was released, starring Keanu Reeves as Constantine. And now we have another version, this time a TV series on NBC, starring an actual Brit. Whether it's good or not, who knows, though buzz hasn't been stellar. I'm gonna watch the hell(blazer) out of it, though.

"Constantine" premieres at 10PM, PST, on NBC.
