  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. https://deadline.com/2018/08/solar-opposites-alien-animated-comedy-rick-and-morty-duo-20th-tv-hulu-series-order-justin-roliand-mike-mcmahan-1202453250/ Hulu have given a 16 episode (across 2 seasons) order for a new adult animation from Rick and Morty's Justin Roiland and Mike McMahan. Due to start in 2020. It's about a family of aliens from a better world who are taking refuge in middle America. They disagree if it is awful or awesome. Roiland is also voicing a couple of the main characters.
  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. New Netflix adult animation from Pendleton Ward and Duncan Trussell. Starts 20 April.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/twilight-zone-reboot-jordan-peele-works-at-cbs-all-access-1050554 CBS announced a Twilight Zone reboot. Coming to CBS All Access, the streaming platform they show Star Trek Discovery on. Here's a bit you will "love". Writer and showrunner is Marco Ramirez, writer for Daredevil season 2, Defenders and Sons of Anarchy. I know how people really took to all that The Hand and Reaching Out.
  11. It's coming back! In the form of a sequel. As you've probably guessed from the name, it's in LA this time, in 1938. Mexican-American folklore.
  12. No, it's not a remake of The Goonies. It's a show about students remaking The Goonies. Which may actually be an interesting change from a remake. It's follows a woman who failed to make it in New York and returns to her hometown as a substitute teacher. She agrees to help some students with the ambitious task of a shot-for-shot remake of The Goonies. Over the course of the season, the town gets inspired, which I assume means they eventually pull together to make it a reality, even the grumpy old man in the weird house, or whatever. https://deadline.com/2020/03/ramon-rodriguez-cast-fox-the-goonies-re-enactment-drama-pilot-1202875896/
  13. https://www.theguardian.com/books/2018/nov/27/netflix-announces-plans-to-adapt-roald-dahl-stories Netflix got the rights to a bunch of Roald Dahl stories and are going to animate them. Included are Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator The BFG The Twits Matilda George’s Marvellous Medicine Boy: Tales of Childhood Going Solo The Enormous Crocodile The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me Henry Sugar Billy and the Minpins The Magic Finger Esio Trot Dirty Beasts Rhyme Stew Some not included are James and the Giant Peach, Danny the Champion of the World and Fantastic Mr Fox.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. The Safdies next one is a comedy TV show for Showtime, with Nathan Fielder of Nathan for You. It'll star Benny and Nathan. It's about an alleged curse hitting the relationship of the married stars of a HGTV show, Flipanthropy. Nathan is the husband of the couple and Benny the show's producer. It may or may not be loosely based on the breakdown of a real-life couple of a HGTV show Flip or Flop. Sounds a bit different from Good Time and Uncut Gems. It'll be interesting to see what comes out of it.
  19. Taika Waititi is bringing The Auteur to screen, starring Jude Law. The comic sounds fun.
  20. Apple are doing a deal with Amblin to bring back Spielberg’s Amazing Stories anthology series. NBCUniversal also involved to make it. (Paywalled) They're apparently looking to spend $5m+ per episode, for an initial 10 episode run. [edit] Non paywalled report
  21. 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
  22. New 10 episode series from SyFy, based on some comic.
  23. http://deadline.com/2017/11/the-raid-gareth-evans-gangs-of-london-sky-hbo-1202213001/ Gareth Evans is doing a big budget gangland drama for Sky and Cinemax. Contemporary London is getting torn apart in a power struggle between international gangs after the leader of one is assassinated. Coming in 2019.
  24. 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.
