Guess I shouldn't be surprised here, but it seems kind of silly. In a show where he's going to be fighting demons and featuring overtly religious material, smoking is what they have trouble with.

Really? It's his thing, why take that from him.

Why did NBC pick this up then, honestly I wish AMC did...look at all the smoking in Mad Men.

There's smoking in a lot of shows on various channels. Not to mention all the other stuff that's shown these days. Hell, isn't NBC the one with a show about a serial killer (Hannibal)? Why would smoking be such an issue?

Yes it is, and they've actually shown a man (not going to say his name due to spoilers) eating his own face! It was very dark (the only way they were allowed to do the scene), but nonetheless, it was a man eating his own face!

Seriously?!? Oh my god... You guys nail the look down to a T and most of his mannerisms but won't get his most simple and icon little habit right. I shoulda known it was too good to be true haha.

I'll probably still watch the show as i love Hellblazer and Justice League Dark and even liked the Keanu Reeves movie (to an extent) but i was hoping he'd be a walking around smoking like a chimney. I hope they find a their "workaround".

Yes, of all the things that are shown on TV, such as the extreme violence on Hannibal, smoking is the thing that should be banned.

But I'm thinking that a person is a lot more likely to be influenced by a TV character to smoke than commit an act of psychotic violence.

...at least I would hope.

Rape, murder and softcore porn are acceptable, smoking isn't.

Ok, that makes sense......
