  1. 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
  2. Based on Mark Millar graphic novels. Coming to Netflix on 7 May. https://deadline.com/video/jupiters-legacy-trailer-netflix-superhero-drama-josh-duhamel/ I suppose it's a bit different than most in that it's not introducing the world to superbiengs, but they've been around for nearly a century and the world is used to them. But now it's time for the next generation to take over.
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. With Arrow finishing, it's star Stephen Amell is taking the lead role in Heels, for Starz. It's set in the world of independent professional wrestling. Amell is the owner of Duffy Wrestling Association in a town in Georgia, while also being the heel, Jack Spade, in the ring.
  8. 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.

    Debris

    Created by Almost Human creator and Fringe producer JH Wyman. Follows two agents, one MI6 and one CIA, investigating the wreckage of a destroyed alien spacecraft and the mysterious effects it's having on humankind. Starts on 1 March, US. Not convinced by the way she's speaking though.
  10. A pilot for this was mentioned in the movie thread over a year ago, but now TNT have picked it up as a series. Stars Jennifer Connelly and a bunch of others.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Another GoT prequel is close to getting a pilot. This one is set 300 years before the show, about House Targaryen. Based on the Fire and Blood books. https://deadline.com/2019/09/house-targaryen-prequel-game-of-thrones-series-ryan-condal-george-rr-martin-hbo-1202732221/
  14. Dark was a big hit, so its creators Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar are back with Netflix with another show. It's set in 1899, around a group of migrants from around Europe and maybe further sailing to America. Their ship encounters another migrant ship adrift and...something mysterious they're not going into details on happens. It'll be multilingual with the multinational cast speaking their native tongues. It's filmed on a virtual "Volume" set, familiar to those in The Mandalorian thread. Friese and Odar actually had this built themselves, at Babelsberg studios i
  15. Elizabeth Banks is developing an adult animation sequel to The Flintstones. Set a couple of decades after the original show, Banks will also be voicing a 20-something Pebbles. https://deadline.com/2021/04/the-flintstones-adult-animated-comedy-sequel-series-bedrock-from-elizabeth-banks-in-works-at-fox-1234744878/
  16. It's not got a name yet, but the prequel is getting a prequel. Diego Luna is returning to play his Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, in a show for Disney+, the streaming service. It's set to be a spy thriller during the formative years of the Rebellion.
  17. http://www.slashfilm.com/the-terror-tv-series/ Excerpt from the article: I've not read the novel (although it's one I keep meaning to), so it's curious as to how this will be anthologised. The only way I can imagine it is that it works as some sorth of True Detective-type thing, with a different story each season tied by a common theme. We'll have to wait and see I suppose.
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. 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 Amazo
  21. Netflix, David Fincher and Charlize Theron are doing a show based on the true crime book Mind Hunter: Inside FBI's Elite Serial Crime Unit. Stars Jonathan Groff, Holt McCallany, Anna Torv and Hannah Gross. Set in 1979, FBI agents interview serial killers to help solve current murders. Their boss (I'm assuming it is) doesn't seem too pleased with that plan, from the teaser. Coming in October. http://deadline.com/2017/03/mindhunter-trailer-netflix-david-fincher-charlize-theron-series-holt-mccallanay-video-1202032899/
  22. 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.
  23. Greg Berlanti and DC Universe (DC's upcoming streaming service) are making a live action Doom Patrol series. It's ordered direct-to-series, with 13 episodes. Apparently it also gives Berlanti a new record of 14 shows airing.
  24. On 6 May (and 7 May on Sky), HBO and Sky start a new drama of the Chernobyl disaster. Not sure how many episodes (edit- 5 parts), but it's billed as a miniseries. Stars Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard and Emily Watson, playing a Kremlin scientist, government official and nuclear physicist respectively. Looks like a few other familiar British and Irish faces in the trailer too.
  25. This sounds like an ambitious plan. HBO with Tom Hanks' Playtone making this Gaiman book. I don't know the book, so can't say what it would be like on screen. But right off the bat they're saying it will be 6 seasons. From one book. 10 - 12 one hour long episodes per seasons with a budget of $35-40 million per season.
