The show has great special effects, a great supporting cast, great easter eggs
From the Beginning of the show things link to the DC Universe. The girl damned to Hell comes from one of his stories.
The Easter eggs I can remember make it even more fun. So if you haven't seen the show, please beware there are spoilers coming up.
Here are the spoilers I remember:
1. Liv is the Daughter of Jasper Winters. At first it means nothing other than he was a friend of John's. But when you go into his house you see that he is clearly BARON WINTERS from the NIGHT FORCE book.
2. Baron Winter's medallion looks a lot like the one used by Doctor Occult.
3. Doctor Fate's helmet is in Winters home.
4. Zed, from Constantine's book shows up as well.
These are the ones that come to me off the top of my head.
Needless to say, I am pleased with the pilot.
More to come.
Go Forth and Do Well
