  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. https://deadline.com/2019/05/marvel-hulu-live-action-ghost-rider-helstrom-series-1202604999/ Another Marvel show coming to Hulu. The article mentions it seems to be based on the Daimon Hellstrom comic character, who I can't say I'm familiar with.
  5. https://deadline.com/2019/05/marvel-hulu-live-action-ghost-rider-helstrom-series-1202604999/ Ghost Rider is getting his own show on Hulu. Gabriel Luna is reprising the role of Robbie Reyes, who he played on Agents of SHIELD.
  6. https://deadline.com/2019/04/phil-lord-chris-miller-mega-deal-sony-pictures-tv-spider-man-universe-tv-series-1202603847/ Lord and Miller have done a deal with Sony Television to develop Spider-Man Universe TV shows (ie. the bits of the Marvel universe Sony have access to through the Spider-Man rights). Live action and animated. Other non-Marvel stuff too.
  7. Mods, please merge if there's a topic already. Anybody watch this through? it's an anthology horror series in the mold of American Horror Story, but instead of the OTT melodrama that show works with, this attempts to be much creepier. The first season is based on the Creepypasta Candle Cove. It centres on a man returning to his home town after being plagued by dreams and images of a scary puppet TV show from his childhood. Think an evil version of Captain Pugwash and you're pretty much there. Structure-wise it's very much in the Stephen King wheelhouse, but tonally it's much more Silent Hill. The slow pacing and the unavoidable sense of dislocation's quite chilling. Well, at least for a while - sad to say I found it ultimately disappointing as it's laboriously slow and the quality of the performances a bit hit and miss. It also manages to get less and less frightening as it goes on. Loads of stuff in it to like though, and I'd recommend seeing it through. A supercut trimming it to half the time would be great (something I reckon Stranger Things would benefit from, too) as I reckon SyFy stretched the content ultra-thin to make a season out of a story you could easily fit into feature film length. I enjoyed it enough to look forward to the second season, though: The No-End House
  8. I've seen a few trails for this and it seems to be getting decent word of mouth, so could be worth a watch.
  9. http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/robert-downey-jr-nic-pizzolatto-hbo-tv-1201836724/ Robert Downey Jr. had been trying to get a Perry Mason movie going at WB for a few years, but now it looks like it'll happen as a series at HBO, with True Detective's Nic Pizzolatto involved.
  10. From Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg comes a series you may expect Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg to be behind. Whole series comes to Hulu on 14 November. Josh Hutcherson, from Hunger Games, plays Josh Futterman (Futterman/Future Man, geddit?) who is a janitor and gamer. He completes a game sent back from the future to find someone to save the future. Like The Last Starfighter. As they literally say. Turns out a cure for herpes has basically doomed mankind so he has to travel back in time to kill the creator. Ed Begly Jr., Haley Joel Osment and Keith David are also in it. Glenne Headly also appears, but she died after filming 5 episodes. See how many movie references you can spot.

    Another show joining the DC Universe shows. Not sure it'll be connected to Titans or Doom Patrol. This one involves the Justice Society of America. Brec Bassinger is in the title role and her alter-ego Courtney Whitmore. Also Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan, pilot of Stripe, a 15-foot robot he invented. Lou Ferrigno Jr. as Rex Tyler/Hourman, Brian Stapf as Ted Grant/Wildcat, Henry Thomas as Charles McNider/Dr Mid-Nite. Amy Smart also playing Barbara Whitmore, Courtney's mother and Pat Dugan's new wife. Also Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins and Nelson Lee as Tigress, Sportsmaster and Dragon King, members of The Injustice Society. The show is being run by Geoff Johns. Won't be coming until early next year. Official synopsis First official pic unveiled at Wondercon yesterday
  12. Looks like it's not been abandoned yet. They're looking to nab Mahershala Ali to star. It's not technically been renewed yet. Variety think it all going to hinge on who they can sign to star and the script.
  13. This show is brilliant (warning: sort-of spoiler in first sentence (!)), and it seems to have flown entirely below everyone's radar. Tatiana Maslany plays a streetwise career criminal, Sarah Manning, who steps off a train in a nameless American city to watch dumbounded as a crying woman who looks exactly like her throws herself under a train. She steals the woman's purse and the plot unfolds from there. It's a sci-fi thriller with some snappy one liners -- closer to Buffy in tone than anything else, really. Outstanding acting from the lead who turns in an Alias-like performance playing different characters and accents; she's impressively chameleon like, with only subtle body language clues enough to clearly let you know which character she's playing. Some great supporting actors too; her metrosexual gay foster brother Jordan Gavaris steals most of the best lines, and there's a recurring role from Michael Mando (Vaas from Far Cry 3!) as Maslany's abusive boyfriend. And I hope for great things in the future from Kevin Hanchard, a down-at-the-mouth homicide detective with a mysterious relationship to Maslany's character. The show doesn't initially spell out its premise, so if you're spoiler-adverse, don't read this: but without saying this bit, I can't talk about the show at all. You'll probably suspect this by the end of the first episode and it's outright confirmed by the third anyway, so it's no big secret. The plot twists and turns at a decent clip and is put together like a precision engineered watch; you're not going to see all of the crosses-and-doubles-crosses coming, for sure. And yet for me it never put a foot wrong with characterisation; you're never left thinking that someone did something that was inconsistent with what you know about them for the sake of advancing the plot -- which is refreshing for a glossy TV show these days. Lots of stuff that doesn't seem remarkable in early episodes takes on new significance in light of developments later on, and some moments that seemed out of place turn out to be perfectly explained by something you just didn't know yet. The first episode is a wee bit generic and a little bit underwhelming (in particular, you may find Maslany's Londaaaahn accent distracting) but stick with it because it all starts to take off from the second episode onwards. Once it gathers momentum, it doesn't let up until the end -- be prepared to binge-watch if it gets under your skin. It's ten episodes long and already confirmed for a second season. It's my favourite new show of the last year, I think.
  14. 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.
  15. I decided to give this a go tonight and have to say I thoroughly enjoyed it (despite not watching the original, 4-part, series last year, to which this is a sequel). If you're a fan of 24 and its ilk, then it's certainly worth a go. Whether it will maintain the pace over the ten weeks is unknown, but the opener didn't disappoint. Doubt it'll win any BAFTAs, but enjoyable shooty-bang-bang stuff nonetheless.

  17. Do we really not have a topic for this show? I couldn't find anything using the forum search. For those who might know nothing about John Oliver or the show it can probably be summed up like this: John Oliver, a comedian who cut his teeth on 'The Daily Show with John Stewart', hosts a news based entertainment series on HBO. The first season had some amazing stuff going on, can't help thinking of those poor space geckos, and the new second season is going strong too. Last night's episode on the tobacco industry was great, really highlighted some stuff I didn't know about and 'Jeff' the mascot is hilarious. Other highlights from the first season include longer segments like these: FIFA and the World Cup Eurovision As well as shorter focussed pieces like these: How is this still a thing? Ayn Rand Tony Abbot - President of the USA of Australia It's quite amazing that most of the episodes and some web exclusive stuff is all on YouTube. I've included a link for the lazy here.
  18. So I just started watching Apollo 13 on Netflix, a film I've never seen before (or so I thought, it does feel now like I've seen it already but I can't recall anything really). I have a loooot to catch up on. I've never seen the Godfather films, nor the Alien films, or in terms of TV shows for example the Sopranos or X-Files. (This mafia and sci-fi parallel was pure coincidence just now, haha). And there are many, many more. In 2015 I finally watched Breaking Bad, and last year I saw Psycho for the first time, but generally progress is slow. What do you still need to see?
  19. Oh God, FX have gone and ordered a pilot for Mayans MC.
  20. New show based on a George RR Martin novella, which was previously adapted as a movie in 1987. Some scientists and a telepath travel on a spaceship, Nightflyer, to the edge of the solar system to try to contact alien life. Things go wrong. Co-produced by SyFy and Netflix, with Netflix having international rights. GRRM isn't directly involved in the show (apart from appearing in the trailer below), keeping busy on other stuff, but does get credited as Executive Producer. Apparently filmed in Limerick, where I didn't even know they had studios.
  21. https://deadline.com/2019/01/love-death-and-robots-first-look-photos-david-fincher-tim-miller-netflix-1202530682/ David Fincher and Tim Miller are bringing an animated anthology series to Netflix. An 18 part series with episodes ranging from 5 to 15 minutes, each created by different animator teams around the world in different styles. Sci-fi, fantasy, horror and dark comedy.
  22. In a deal similar to how they started the Netflix shows, Marvel has done a deal with Hulu for 4 shows, culminating in a "The Offenders" team-up. But this time they're adult animated shows. The 4 individual shows are Marvel’s Tigra & Dazzler Show, Marvel’s Hit-Monkey, Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. and Howard the Duck (it's happening.gif).
  23. David Attenborough doing another planet-spanning show, this time on Netflix. 8 parts, coming on 5 April. Super Bowl ad, with not a single Superb Owl in sight
  24. Turns out Amazon are doing a TV version of the Saoirse Ronan movie, Hanna. Which came out more years ago than I thought. David Farr, the movie co-writer, is writing this too. Coming in March. I liked the movie and it's odd style. So, for me, this has a lot to live up to.
  25. I know I'm posting two threads at the same time, because there's two versions coming. This one is from the Europe and Africa division of Fox TV and Canal+. It's eight parts and set in the present day. It's created and written by Misfits Howard Overman, who intends to explore themes of racial superiority and ethnic conflict.
