    Let's just hope that Fox don't screw this up by showing the episodes in some random order.

    It looks like it has the same sort of vibe as Constantine which doesn't bode well for cancellation.

    Watched the pilot episode and it was pretty good even if it's not really doing anything new.

    Was rather a good pilot, love how he's such a cocky **** and doesn't shy away from just saying who he is, regardless of whose listening and where he is.

    Bonus too, I'd forgotten just how ridiculously hot Lauren German was.

    Well, it's yet another "detective + magic sidekick resolving crime of the week" show, but the Mentalist/Ichabod Crane/Castle/Immortal NY Examiner/Sherlock/Constantine is now Satan himself played with the same Welsh-into-forced-US-TV-English accent as Constantine but now with the gayest panache since Cameron Tucker in Modern Family.

    How long do you think something like that is going to last on American conservative network?

    3 pilot episodes came out on the same day. This using Satan+cop, Minority Report with psychic+cop and Blindspot which is basically Jaime Alexander playing an adult version of her character from Kyle XY and partnering up with... another cop.

    Though it is an interesting premise its weird how many variants there are at the moment - watched most of those and while they are interesting for the first ~3 episodes quickly fallback on tried and done to death scenarios/story.

    This looks potentially good but again probably loses the novelty fast.

    I think they've decided that the combo works well overall in viewing figures. They do seem to be using it in practically everything at the moment though, it's like they'll fire out 5 of the type and hope one sticks.

    But it's blasphemy to the comic? :(

    Was thinking the same :D. I couldn't remember what I had seen her in before, but after checking the all knowing IMDB it was Chicago fire. She seem to have become hotter since doing that show.

    tbh it doesn't feel much different to that series where he played a doctor

    She's Beth from Hostel 2. The chick who 'won' because she was rich.

    Gotta admit I liked it.

    Absolutely **** all to do with the comic in any way, shape or form except in the absolute broadest of strokes but I found it quite entertaining.

    Still would have preferred a Sandman adaptation though.

    It's not great but I enjoyed it, which is kind of the point really.

    See how it turns out I guess.

    Some complexity and a sense of humour elevated it above a lot of the recent tripe but it didn't really grab me but didn't put me off either - maybe the next couple of episodes will pull me in.
