It’s never to early to start campaigning to save one of your favorite shows.

Constantine, first season has been reduced to 13 episodes instead of a full season. It doesn’t mean it’s on it’s slow decent into cancellationville but it also means that the show hasn’t found the audience that it is intended for.

John Constantine is a pain in the arse. He doesn’t hide it. In fact he goes out of his way to make sure that everyone knows it. But having seen what he’s seen and lived a life knowing that the borders between Hell and Earth are slowly crumbling there’s not much time for niceties.

Constantine comes from the DC Comics world and from the first show on you know it. The dark settings and the darker enemies cast the theme for the show. A demonologist and dabbler in the dark arts, Constantine can take on much of the underworld single handedly. But as the walls become weaker and weaker, the more help he needs keeping the enemy at bay.

As the show has progressed through the first half of it’s inaugural season I told myself to not get attached but I couldn’t help it. There’s so much potential and the options are nearly endless in what new demon could wreak havoc. I’ve felt this way about shows before but then they were taken away from me way too prematurely. For example: Firefly, Pushing Daisies, Arrested Development, Deadwood, Adventures of Brisco County Jr., Lie to Me, and many more.

I know these examples are all over the place and probably date me severely but I can’t go through it again. I fall in love with these shows and it takes me a while to get over them. I hope Constantine can escape the early exits of others that deserved a better life.
