  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 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?
  2. 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.
  3. Just watched this on BBC1. Really enjoyed it, with a bunch of genuine LOLs. I'm a sucker for slapstick so this was right up my street.
  4. 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.
  5. 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/
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  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. It's HBO, so there's reason for hope, right? It's only early in talks, but Damon Lindelof, fresh off The Leftovers, is currently attached too.
  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/2015/11/lost-in-space-tv-series-remake-netflix-1201587644/ Legendary TV is remaking Lost in Space, with Netflix winning a bidding war. Neil Marshall is involved and expected to direct. Not sure about the writers though. They did Dracula Untold, The Last Witch Hunter and the weird looking upcoming Gods of Egypt. Didn't bother watching the first two as they seems to be bad. If Rottentomatoes are to be trusted, they turned out awful.
  12. 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.
  13. https://deadline.com/2019/10/superman-lois-tv-series-tyler-hoechlin-elizabeth-tulloch-star-development-the-cw-1202770637/ Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch are reprising their roles as Superman/Clark Kent and Lois Lane for their own show. It's getting a standalone pilot rather than a backdoor pilot in Supergirl. Probably no point going into what a Superman and Lois show would be about at this point, they are known well enough now.
  14. Since I imagine that many would have missed this, since it's on BBC3, I urge you all to watch Murder in Successville, as the first episode is one of the funniest things I've seen on TV in a while. It's basically like a noire-themed Stella Street where actors play anachronistic versions of real-life celebrities. But the twist is that every episode an actual celebrity (i.e. played by themselves) has to solve a murder. They have no idea what's going on, and the rest of the cast improv around them. The first episode had some guy from Made in Chelsea who I'd never heard of, but he was very game and played along, but frequently couldn't stop himself from corpsing, which was hilarious. I kind of feel like I haven't sold it very well there - but it's only half an hour long, and I encourage you to watch it, even if you don't give a shit about Made in Chelsea or celebrities. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b05tr5f0/murder-in-successville-1-the-mob

    Clarice

    With Silence of the Lambs spin-off series Hannibal wrongly cancelled, someone* decided to do Silence of the Lambs spin-off series Clarice, for CBS, based on Clarice Starling pursuing serial killers and sexual predators. Set in 1993, a year after Silence of the Lambs. *Alex Kurtzman https://deadline.com/2020/01/clarice-silence-of-the-lambs-sequel-tv-series-cbs-alex-kurtzman-jenny-lumet-big-commitment-1202828050/
  17. FX and Alex Garland are making an 8 episode limited series. It's about a computer engineer who suspects her employer is responsible for her boyfriend's murder. The young engineer is Sonoya Mizuno, who Garland had in both his previous movies. Her employer, the boss of a big tech company, is Nick Offerman.
  18. It was mentioned in the movie thread a while ago, but there's some more concrete plans coming together for the TV version now. Clement and Waititi are both involved, with Clement writing and Waititi directing. Kayvan Novak, Matt Berry, Natasia Demetriou, Harvey Guillen have been cast. Just a pilot order for now.
  19. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-34711492 Hopefully this will fare better than the movie adaptations.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  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. So this is what Dave Filoni is doing after Clone Wars and Rebels. It is set prior to The Force Awakens and will follow Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Seemingly dropping the CG of the prior shows and going for an anime-inspired look. The article says it will feature BB-8, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's guest appearances rather than regular. It's coming in autumn.
  25. 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.
