'Constantine'

NBC Fri., Oct. 24th, 10 p.m.

Yet another DC Comics superhero franchise. Why is network TV desperately attaching its vampire fangs to the comics fan base in search of fresh blood? Maybe they've just noticed they don't know how to tell a story anymore, while comics do. Constantine is a work in progress – they're still adding cast members. (They were probably spooked by nightmares of Keanu Reeves' film version.) But the smirking Matt Ryan as the demon-hunting John Constantine adds sour humor to all the dark-arts devilry. Go in peace, Keanu, and sin no more.
