  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    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.
  4. Another revival! Ralph Macchio and William Zabka have bills to pay are back as Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence. After competition from mainly streaming services, it's going to YouTube Red, the YouTube subscription service. Down-and-out Johnny reopens the Cobra Kai dojo and reignited his rivalry with a successful Daniel, who has struggles of his own. It's going to be a 10 episode half hour comedy series. Yes, comedy. Karate too of course. It's being written by the minds behind Hot Tub Time Machine and Harold and Kumar.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

    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.
  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.

  10. http://deadline.com/2017/10/bad-boys-spinoff-tv-series-starring-gabrielle-union-jerry-bruckheimer-1202194320/ It's a bit confusing whether Bad Boys 3 is happening or not, but they're now developing a TV spin-off based around Gabrielle Union's character from the second movie, where she was a DEA agent and Burnett's sister.
  11. 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.
  12. http://variety.com/2017/film/global/rick-okon-lizzie-caplan-sky-das-boot-sequel-1202479418/ Sky Germany, Italy and UK are teaming up for a €25m 8-part series. Obviously not a direct sequel to the original, but continuing the war in 1942 with the young crew of another U-boat. Could be interesting, but I'm not sure it needs to be connected to Das Boot.

    Gremlins animation

    They're bringing back Gremlins. It'll be an animated series on the WarnerMedia streaming service. It's a prequel, about Mr. Wing, when he was a young man, and Gizmo.

  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-34711492 Hopefully this will fare better than the movie adaptations.
  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. 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.
  21. 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.
  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. 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).

    Love, Death & Robots

    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.
  25. I've always liked the 80s movie based on the book of the same name and now National Geographic are making a series of it with Appian Way, DiCaprio's company. They are planning on it being multiple seasons, covering from the test pilots to the Moon landing. They're saying a mission for each season, which I assume means the overall Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions.
