Matt Ryan as John Constantine


Looks a little clean for my taste, but it's still early yet.  David Goyer's involvement means it could go either way.

His tie like that reminds me of the Nostalgia Critic.

Wow, that actually does look good. I am surprised that with Martin Freeman's success with The Hobbit he'd want to go to a TV show. But I guess recently with so many quality dramas on cable networks, that doesn't have the stigma it used to.

Enlisted cancelled.

Mind Games cancelled.

*shrug*

I only watched Enlisted because Ron Funches was in the pilot.  It was ok.  Had a few laughs mainly at the expense of the dumb brother.

I didn't bother with Mind Games because I figured it's a Christian Slater show, it's going to be cancelled.

 :(  I enjoyed it.

It was even better in order. (How I have it on my hard drive, and hopefully how the DVD release will have the episodes) There was better dynamic, character progression, and subtle mythology spattered throughout the season.

Fox really screwed the pooch on that show.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

Agree with both posts (liked it; better in order and screwed the pooch).

Seems Fox has something against 'genre' shows succeeding on its network (I seem to recall a certain show by a Very Famous Writer/Director that was aired grossly out of order (with the two-part pilot aired last) which helped result in its untimely demise on that network as well).

12 Monkeys Gets 12-Episode Pick Up From Syfy
We're getting a full season of the new 12 Monkeys TV series from Syfy, which will help push the channel's slate of original scripted series forward (especially since we're losing Warehouse 13 and Being Human this year).

Syfy Orders 'Olympus' Mythological Drama Series (Exclusive)
The 13-episode effort from the team behind "Alice" and "Neverland" heads into production this summer for a 2015 bow.

Syfy orders 'The Expanse' series based on 'Leviathan Wakes' (think 'Game of Thrones' in space)

Syfy Orders Space Opera 'The Expanse' to Series
Quote from: Lesley Goldberg
Syfy is continuing to reinvent itself, handing out another straight-to-series order for a space odyssey based on the best-selling book series The Expanse.

The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has picked up 10 episodes of The Expanse, based on James S.A. Corey's book series that includes the well-known Leviathan Wakes. 

Syfy Is Finally Embracing Sci-Fi Again (Opinion)
The network's recently unveiled development slate is stuffed with the kind of genre entertainment -- space operas, time travel, urban magic -- it has forsaken for so long.

Still bummed that they (and NBC) scrapped The Sixth Gun mini-series.
