Constantine - The Complete Series

Although Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl (along with the less-successful Legends of Tomorrow) have all found solid footholds on The CW, not all of DC's recent television shows have fourished. Constantine only lasted one-half of one season. Centered around dickish demon hunter John Constantine (Matt Ryan), the show had mixed results diving into the magic and occult of the DCU. Along with old (Charles Halford) and new (Angélica Celaya) friends, Constatine would fight to push back the darkness until the show's cancellation (although since he has turned up on Arrow during it's heavily magic-centered Fourth Season). Collected on DVD and Blu-ray, the show is a mixed bag (more comparable to Legends of Tomorrow than The CW's other super-hero shows) which dips DC's television universe into magic and the occult, but leaves quite a lot of story untold.

Available on Blu-ray and DVD, all 14 episodes are collected along with a Comic-Con Q&A panel, series trailer, and a short behind-the-scenes featurette.

[Warner Archive Collection, Blu-ray $39.99 / DVD $29.99]
