  2. New workplace comedy based on Donald Trump's announcement of a new Space Force. That's where we are now. Created by Steve Carell and Greg Daniels of The Office (US version) and starring Carell. It's about the people tasked with creating the Space Force after the announcement.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

    Amazon Prime Video

    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.

    Doctor Who

    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?

    Hanna - TV version

    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.
  9. 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

    Weird City

    Jordan Peele and Charlie Sanders new show on YouTube Premium. Described as a satirical anthology, set in Weird City. It is a city divided by The Line, with The Haves on one side and The Have Nots on the other, with no middle class. Features LeVar Burton, Dylan O'Brien, Ed O'Neill, Rosario Dawson, Michael Cera, Mark Hamill, Laverne Cox, Sara Gilbert, Steven Yuen, Awkwafina, Yvette Nicole Brown and Auli'i Cravalho. Coming on 13 February.
  11. 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?

    Watchmen coming to HBO

    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.
  15. 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.
  16. I know I'm posting two threads at the same time, because there's two versions coming. This one, from BBC, stars Rafe Spall, Eleanor Tomlinson, Robert Carlyle and Rupert Graves. It's set in Edwardian England, for a change from other screen adaptations. Director Craig Viveiros says he's trying to capture a feeling that isn't cosy or predictable. It's already in production.
  17. Netflix is obviously oversaturated with Marvel shows, so Jeph Loeb has moved on to Hulu for this one

    Doom Patrol

    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.

    Person of Interest

    Can't find a dedicated thread for this - apologies if I've missed one - it first aired in the US last year, so I'm suprised. This starts tonight on Five. It's had very good reviews and ratings in the US and even prompted CBS to move CSI from the slot it's held for ten years to make way for it. It's been granted a second season already.
  20. Stephen King and JJ Abrams are going back to Hulu after their 11.22.63 collaboration there. I don't have extensive knowledge of King's work, but apparently Castle Rock gets mentioned a lot, with a few stories set there too. Nothing really known yet about the show or if it relates to other works. A lot of stuff does get named in the teaser though.

    Miracle Workers

Earth is going badly and God is basically giving up on it. Craig and his new work partner Eliza (Geraldine Viswanathan) want to do something to stop God blowing up Earth. Starts 12 February.

    Catch 22

    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.
  23. https://deadline.com/2018/12/rashomon-tv-series-amblin-1202522159/ The idea behind the show could be good if done well, but I'm not sure it's necessary to tie the Rashomon name into it. Like the movie, it tells the story of an event from a number of different perspectives. Each 10 episode season would tell a different story in this way.

    The Terror - Season 2

    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.
  25. Netflix are making a prequel to The Dark Crystal. It's a 10 part series, produced by The Jim Henson Company with Louis Leterrier directing. *sploosh* [edit] A bit more detail
