John Constantine is the latest DC “hero” to come to life on screen, and it’s starting to seem to me that while Marvel owns the movie box office, DC is taking names in the television realm.
I raved about Sleepy Hollow last year when it came on the scene. Now, what feels like years but is only eight or nine months later, Sleepy Hollow is back. The question is – should you be back with the residents of the U.S.’s most demonic area as well?
A prequel that doesn’t feature the most popular comics character possibly ever created? A show focused on a supporting character in no way as popular as that other, incredibly popular character? Starring that kid from The O.C.? What’s up with that and who the heck thought it would work?

This show follows Korra, the teenaged Avatar, as she comes into her full powers and gets trained in how to actually use them, as well as how to be the Avatar. Of course, things don’t go smoothly and there are conspiracies to thwart, intrigues and mysteries to solve, lots of martial arts and element “bending”, action, and romance.
