Yes I am interested in seeing this.

Preacher has been good too.

Real shame about Constantine/Hellblazer. A brilliant character, but TV just does not seem to get him.

Got to watch episode one last night (eztv) and it was very good.

Shows a lot of promise

Watched the first episode and was very entertained. Top cast and baffling scenes. Currently watching the second.  Ian McShane AKA the cringe-worthy Lovejoy can really play a charismatic bad guy.

I liked Lovejoy.

Perfect gentle whimsy. First class stuff.

Went downhill when Eric left though. Never the same afterwards.

I kind of liked Lovejoy, but it was cheesy with its loveable rogue shtick. 

It was the show responsible for nickname 'binner' towards Ipswich fans by Norwich fans  after a scene where dustman Warren Clarke finds a scummy Ipswich hat in a bin and decides to wear it.  As you would if you supported Ipswich.

So for that contribution to the culture of rightly mocking Ipswich fans, it deserves respect.

A guilty pleasure.  Not quite first class in my view, but entertaining enough if you had nothing better to do with your time.

I've never forgiven Ipswich for pinching Paul Mariner from us and sending down Terry Austin and John Peddlety.

Currently watching the second. 

I do like the twists in the second

for example the game of checkers rather than chess as would be traditional.  there are others but I think these will be told in part 3.
