  1. An unusual premise this, and based on the first episode it will be well worth a download every week. Michael C Hall (Six Feet Under's David) plays Dexter, who is a serial killer. He's also a CSI-type cop. The dark comedy style is similar to SFU, and whilst it will never hit the heights of that show, it will be an entertaining and interesting 45 minutes every week. It is also on Showtime which means they won't hold back on the gore. If it wasn't for Heroes, this would be my highlight of the brand new shows so far this season. First episode of eleven was on Sunday and is Out There now.
  2. Personally enjoyed it. The bin burp and the severed arm wrestling were a bit shit, but otherwise it worked well as an introduction to the characters. Some people have criticized the somewhat hectic pace of the story but I personally feel that the whole intent was to introduce Rose and the Doctor and having her get caught up in the action right from the beginning allowed this to happen with plenty of pace. I don't think that a detailed story PLUS the introduction of the characters would've worked if they'd tried to squeeze it all into the first 45 minute episode. My 10 yr old son sat glued to the TV the entire 45 minutes, so on that count I think it worked as family entertainment - after all, if the programme only tried to appeal to the (now grown up) people who watched the old series it would probably fail terribly - the producers have to attract a new audience as well as catering for the original fans if it's to succeed. Seems to have trounced Ant 'n' Dec in the ratings though and almost all the word of mouth I've seen has been positive (apart from the balls-up that allowed Graham Norton's voice to intrude - I thought the baddies were Autons, not Nortons...). Have to see how it holds up over the coming weeks. What'd everyone else think?
  3. Star Trek adult animation. From Rick and Morty head writer Mike McMahan. It'll focus on the support crew on one of Starfleet's least important ships. McMahan is also the guy behind that twitter account which posted fake episode plots for an eighth TNG season.
  4. Probably past time this got its own thread. They've just announced it begins on 11 June. I'll just stick this in here too just to have something, even if it's not new.
  5. Roger Law attempting to bring back Spitting Image. After the success of 2DTV and Newzoids (I forgot that existed and never even saw it). And with satire being murdered by the real world. He's filmed a pilot and is attempting to bring it to a US network rather than UK.
  6. There were some doubts it would happen, but it now looks like it is. Though at the TCA press tour, they said it won't be until 2019. No story details yet, but Hawley is working on it. [edit] Trailer added
  7. http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/tech/news/a552739/lovefilm-instant-to-become-amazon-prime-instant-video.html I used to be with Lovefilm, but left when they stopped renting games. At the time their streaming video service was nice as an added bonus on the subscription, but not something I'd have paid for on its own due to a poor library and apps only available on a very limted number of devices with rubbish update support. Not sure if this will tempt me away from Netflix, their original programming (House of Cards, Orange is the New Black, Arrested Development) blow away Amazon's rather uninspiring efforts in that area and without the introductory offer it's actually more expensive than Netflix (only by about £7 but still). The main argument for that price is the Amazon Prime delivery which i wouldn't particularly want. Still, more competition is good for us customers, not sure I'd want to be subscribed to two streaming services, but if they significantly improve their library I might take a look eventually.
  8. http://deadline.com/2017/11/amazon-the-lord-of-the-rings-tv-series-multi-season-commitment-1202207065/ Amazon have reached a deal with the Tolkien Estate, Harper Collins and New Line. It's for a series set prior to Fellowship of the Ring and an additional unspecified potential spin-off. Apparently it will not be limited to material from the books and can include new material featuring the characters. This actually comes from the Tolkien Estate approaching studios rather than studios seeking permission. They had also approached Netflix and HBO. It seems Amazon are paying $200 million for the rights. Just the rights. Actually making the thing will be an additional hefty cost.
  9. Batwoman is coming to the "Arrowverse". It's not certain of being its own show yet, but they are casting the character for a crossover event in December with a view to spinning her out to her own show. It's being developed by Greg Berlanti, of all the other shows, and Caroline Dries, of The Vampire Diaries.
  10. https://deadline.com/2021/07/neil-gaiman-tv-adaptation-anansi-boys-amazon-1234797152/ Amazon have ordered a 6-part limited series of Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys. Gaiman is writing the series with Lenny Henry and it's shooting in Scotland later this year.
  11. Amazon come along with another hero show, based on a Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson comic. The show is developed by Eric Kripke, Evan Goldberg, and Seth Rogen. Stars Karl Urban, Elizabeth Shue, Antony Starr and a bunch more.
  12. Noah Hawley, behind the excellent Fargo, is bringing this to TV. Apparently it's being kept separate from the X-Men movies. Stars Dan Stevens as David Haller, who hears voices in his head and resides in a psychiatric hospital. But he may actually be a powerful mutant (which I assume means he really is). Begins in the US on 8 February. No UK news yet.
  13. Dave Filoni is back to animation again with The Bad Batch. The Bad Batch being a group of Clone Troopers first introduced in The Clone Wars. Though this is set just after the war as they take on mercenary jobs and try to find their purpose.
  14. BBC Studios are developing a 6-part series based on the Discworld books. From the name, I assume it's mainly based on the City Watch characters. They're not looking to restrict it to 6 episodes, but one which can have more series to follow. It's being produced with Pratchett's production company Narrativia and apparently looking for other partners to make it a major international co-production.
  15. From the studio that brought you the best Resident Evil movie series starring Milla Jojovich OF ALL TIME and Netfix. Not a lot of detail yet, but they plan to do exciting things such as "expand the universe" and "deepen the existing mythology". It'll explore the dark inner workings of Umbrella Corporation and the new world order. The latter are wrestlers, right?
  16. http://deadline.com/2018/05/lovecraft-country-jonathan-majors-hbo-series-jordan-peele-jj-abrams-misha-green-1202381033/ Thought this sounds like it could be interesting. Based on a 2016 book of the same name. Anyone read it? Jonathan Majors and Jurnee Smollett-Bell play the leads in Jim Crow 1950s America. They, and another character, go on a road trip to find Majors character's missing father. They encounter horrors of both the racist and Lovecraft kind.
  17. HBO pirate comedy loosely based on Stede Bonnet. Bonnet was an aristocrat who left that life to become a pirate. Rhys Darby will play Bonnet. As well as EP and director of the first episode, Taika Waititi will also play Blackbeard, who really did have dealings with Bonnet.
  18. First two episodes are out there. Have been for a couple of days, so there doesn't seem to have been much buzz around it. I've not watched them myself yet, but a friend, who hated the movie, says these two episodes are decent enough.
  19. Can't find a dedicated thread for this - apologies if I've missed one - it first aired in the US last year, so I'm suprised. This starts tonight on Five. It's had very good reviews and ratings in the US and even prompted CBS to move CSI from the slot it's held for ten years to make way for it. It's been granted a second season already.
  20. I'd been seeing stories for a while about a new DC Universe Harley Quinn cartoon but didn't pay much attention. I just knew Penny off Big Bang Theory was playing the main role. Happened upon a trailer this morning and it's not what I expected, being full of swearing and violence. They've assembled a pretty impressive cast too Kaley Cuoco as Harley Alan Tudyk as Joker and Clayface Diedrich Bader as Batman Jason Alexander as Cy Borgman Christopher Meloni as James Gordon Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho and Felix Faust Giancarlo Esposito as Lex Luthor Wanda Sykes as Queen of Fables J. B. Smoove as Frank the Plant James Adomian as Bane James Wolk as Superman And a bunch more, I think some from other cartoons too
  21. Another revival! Ralph Macchio and William Zabka have bills to pay are back as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. After competition from mainly streaming services, it's going to YouTube Red, the YouTube subscription service. Down-and-out Johnny reopens the Cobra Kai dojo and reignited his rivalry with a successful Daniel, who has struggles of his own. It's going to be a 10 episode half hour comedy series. Yes, comedy. Karate too of course. It's being written by the minds behind Hot Tub Time Machine and Harold and Kumar.
  22. This'll probably go down like a lead balloon. It's already a classic and has an English dub regarded as exemplary. Can they possibly make any improvements? It's coming from a studio that also feels the need to remake Snowpiercer.
  23. https://deadline.com/video/shadow-and-bone-trailer-when-netflix-april-2021/ I don't know what Leigh Bardugo’s Grishaverse novels are, but this is based on those. Apart from Ben Barnes, the named cast seem to be relative newcomers. A teaser that doesn't show much of anything.
  24. Amazon have bought MGM for $8.45billion https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-57249849.amp
  25. Amazon have greenlit a Jack Reacher series. No casting news yet, but the first season will be based on the first novel, The Killing Floor. It'll be written by Nick Santora (of, erm, Scorpion and Prison Break), who will also be showrunner.
