  1. An unusual premise this, and based on the first episode it will be well worth a download every week. Michael C Hall (Six Feet Under's David) plays Dexter, who is a serial killer. He's also a CSI-type cop. The dark comedy style is similar to SFU, and whilst it will never hit the heights of that show, it will be an entertaining and interesting 45 minutes every week. It is also on Showtime which means they won't hold back on the gore. If it wasn't for Heroes, this would be my highlight of the brand new shows so far this season. First episode of eleven was on Sunday and is Out There now.
  2. Yet another game becoming a Netflix show. Maybe "the Netflix of games" is just Netflix making TV shows of games. Supposed to be set in the past and telling the origin stories of several characters from Piltover and Zaun.
  3. 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.
  4. Dean Devlin bringing a new show to Syfy. Stargate SG-1's Jonathan Glassner showrunning. It takes place 100 years in the future, with colonisation of other planets just beginning. The first colony ship, Ark One, suffers a catastrophic destructive event of some kind with a year left to reaching their target. With leaders and life sustaining supplies gone, they must figure out how to survive and get there. Starts production in Belgrade in March.
  5. Probably past time this got its own thread. They've just announced it begins on 11 June. I'll just stick this in here too just to have something, even if it's not new.
  6. https://deadline.com/2020/09/peacemaker-james-gunn-john-cena-dc-hbo-max-tv-1234582582/ Peacemaker, as played by John Cena in The Suicide Squad, is coming to HBO Max. The whole 8-episode first season will be written by James Gunn and several episodes directed by him.
  7. HBO pirate comedy loosely based on Stede Bonnet. Bonnet was an aristocrat who left that life to become a pirate. Rhys Darby will play Bonnet. As well as EP and director of the first episode, Taika Waititi will also play Blackbeard, who really did have dealings with Bonnet.
  8. Another version of the story, this time starring David Tennant as Phileas Fogg. It's being made by a group of European broadcasters and looks like it will have a multinational cast. It's due to air towards the end of 2020 and will be on BBC in the UK.
  9. 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?
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. https://deadline.com/2022/01/apple-tv-godzilla-legendary-monsterverse-1234916545/ Apple have done a deal for a live-action TV show which is part of the big-screen Legendary Monsterverse.
  13. 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.
  14. It's got a date now, so I'll drag it out of the general thread. Coming on 24 November.
  15. New show on Apple from 18 February. A stylised workplace thriller. The concept of the "severance" of the title is that people can have their personal and work memories completely divided and kept separate by a surgical procedure. Obviously, things are not quite right with all this. Stars Adam Scott, Patricia Arquette, John Turturro, Christopher Walken, Britt Lower, Zach Cherry, Dichen Lachman, Jen Tullock, Tramell Tillman and Michael Chernus. Directed by Ben Stiller.
  16. They're doing a limited series of The Santa Clause on Disney+, with Tim Allen back. Scott Calvin is now almost 65 and realises he needs to find a new Santa, and he wants to give his own family a bit of normal life. Production starts in March, so presumably it'll be ready for this Christmas. https://deadline.com/2022/01/tim-allen-the-santa-clause-sequel-series-disney-plus-scott-calvin-jack-burditt-last-man-standing-1234912715/
  17. Scott Pilgrim is coming back to screen, as an anime on Netflix. Bryan Lee O’Malley, who wrote the graphic novel, will write and be co-showrunner. It'll be animated by Science SARU, so it should at least look interesting.
  18. The Jinx is an HBO documentary series that recently finished. It's also one of the most incredible pieces of television I've ever seen. It's about the New York millionaire Robert Durst and his possible involvement in three murders. I don't want to go any further than that because the less you know, the better. If, like me, you found out about it on the news you might have already heard some of the more explosive details, but it's still definitely worth seeing. So, my advice: 1) Ignore any news about Robert Durst, and certainly do not google him. 2) Aquire and watch the six episodes of The Jinx ASA fucking P. 3) Make sure to watch the whole thing. It's only six eps. You might come away from the first three or so thinking it's just a competent documentary. Stick with it, it's much more than that.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Dave Filoni is back to animation again with The Bad Batch. The Bad Batch being a group of Clone Troopers first introduced in The Clone Wars. Though this is set just after the war as they take on mercenary jobs and try to find their purpose.
  22. 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.
  23. Heo Sung-tae and Gong Yoo from Netflix show Squid Game and Bae Doona from Netflix show Sense8 star in 8-part Netflix show The Silent Sea. Coming on 24 December. In the future, Earth is turning to desert. A team are assembled to retrieve a mysterious sample from an abandoned lunar base, which will apparently help save Earth. It's based on a 2014 short, The Sea of Tranquility. Both directed by Choi Hang-yong.
  24. I'm feeling trepidation about how this could turn out. JMS is back with Warner Bros. TV to reboot the show for The CW.
  25. This'll probably go down like a lead balloon. It's already a classic and has an English dub regarded as exemplary. Can they possibly make any improvements? It's coming from a studio that also feels the need to remake Snowpiercer.
