  1. 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/

  10. Due to more arguments in the big GoT thread about what should and shouldn't be in that thread and whether it was working or not I have decided to start this. Sorry for diluting the chat and making another GoT thread. Here is my post from the other thread which a few people seemed to agree with and forms the basis for this thread. I don't care if something is exactly the same as the book, completely different or whatever. If this isn't how you would like to discuss the show please open a "Game of Thrones-Books read up to current episode" thread. Please leave this thread totally book free. No book chat. None. So no book chat. None. Even to discuss differences. This is purely to discuss what is on screen. The only time spoilers should be used in here is between Sunday night when the new episode is first shown in the US and 8pm Monday evening. If you are waiting for the Sky transmission and click a spoiler in here you just have yourself to blame. After 8pm on Mondays spoiler tags should not be needed in this thread. The reason I am being so fussy about spoilers is the books are out there containing spoilers for the next few series and the spoilers are so significant as anything can happen. After series one it is clear anyone can die etc.
  11. Seeing as there was never an official thread for this show, the fact it's continuing straight into it's second season this weekend seems like a good opportunity as any to start one. The show started very strongly but suffered from delays getting episodes to air once the first 8 or 9 were completed.. But it's well worth catching up on now the first season is complete.. The writing has been excellent and the animation is superb, looking particularly lovely in HD. 'Invasion' has been appended to the shows title for season2, due to the fact that the majority of this year will be focussed on one plotline. The look of a few of the characters has been revised a little and there are three new additions to the cast (not including the ones added within the last few episodes).. The starting line-up: Aqualad, Robin, Kid Flash, Superboy, Miss Martian and Artemis eventually expands to include Red Arrow, Zatanna and Rocket. Given the events of the finale, that will not necessarily be the case moving forward.. However new cast members for this season will include Wonder Girl, Lagoon Boy and Blue Beetle http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C0S_OFmw0TI http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vlf13ywGq_Q
  12. 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.
  13. Season 2 is go. This time, set during World War 2. Something about an "uncanny spectre" following Japanese-Americans from their home in California to internment camps and the Pacific war. It's being run by Alexander Woo from True Blood with Max Borenstein of Kong: Skull Island.
  14. 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?
  15. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2017/nov/17/george-clooney-returns-to-television-for-catch-22-two-decades-after-er?CMP=soc_567 This could be good.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. https://deadline.com/video/godfather-of-harlem-trailer-extended-look-epix-series-forest-whitaker/ Forest Whitaker plays Bumpy Johnson in 60s Harlem. Just out of prison, he finds the area now controlled by the Genovese crime family. Malcolm X apparently plays a big part and Muhammad Ali, then Cassius Clay, appears in the trailer, in a fight, but I don't know how much he's part of it. As well as Whitaker, it's got Vincent D’Onofrio, lfenesh Hadera, Nigél Thatch, Paul Sorvino, Chazz Palminteri, Giancarlo Esposito, Lucy Fry, Kelvin Harrison Jr. and Antoinette Crowe-Legacy. Starts on 29 September in the US, for 10 episodes.
  19. CBS are having another go at The Stand. And it will have a new ending, written by King. Not a changed ending, but a substantial portion of the final episode (of 9) is going beyond the ending of the book. James Marsden as Stu Redman Whoopie Goldberg as Mother Abigail Amber Heard as Nadine Cross Greg Kinnear as Glen Bateman Odessa Young as Frannie Goldsmith Henry Zaga as Nick Andros Marilyn Manson will also be appearing in some unknown role as well as doing a cover of The End (The Doors) with Shooter Jennings for the show
  20. 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.
  21. Netflix show based on a 1959 Shirley Jackson gothic horror novel, but with the plot updated. Coming on 12 October. Created and directed by Mike Flanagan, of Oculus and Gerald's Game. It's about a group of siblings who lived in what would later become the most famous haunted house in the country. As adults they are brought back together and must face the ghosts of their past (cliche alert).
  22. With Gotham ending, Bruno Heller is doing another pre-Batman show, with Danny Cannon. Pennyworth is, of course, about Alfred. He's a former SAS soldier who forms a security company and goes to work for Thomas Wayne. Set in 60s London. Premium cable network Epix has ordered a 10-episode season.
  23. John Krasinski will be the fifth Jack Ryan in a new TV show coming to Amazon. It's not been greenlit for a full series yet, but is expected to be. Carlton Cuse will run the show and Michael Bay will be a producer. They say it's not a direct adaptation of books, but a contemporary take on Ryan's days in the CIA with some book stuff used as source material.
  24. https://deadline.com/2019/07/jeff-bridges-to-star-as-retired-cia-officer-in-fx-drama-the-old-man-from-black-sails-co-creators-jon-steinberg-robert-levine-1202653849/ Jeff Bridges will be a retired CIA officer in a new FX drama. It comes from Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine, co-creators of Black Sails. Bridges is Dan Chase, who left the CA decades ago and now lives off the grid. Then an assassin tries to take him out and, I dunno, he uses his particular set of skills or something. Hopefully it turns out well.
  25. https://deadline.com/2019/07/the-hitchhikers-guide-to-the-galaxy-tv-series-in-works-at-hulu-from-carlton-cuse-jason-fuchs-1202652440/ Hulu are giving this another go, as a TV series. Coming from Carlton Cuse (Lost, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Locke & Key) and Jason Fuchs (Wonder Woman, Ice Age: Continental Drift).
