  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    Swamp Thing

    Another DC show coming soon. Derek Mears, who seems to play a lot of large men and monsters, is in the suit. Crystal Reed is the female lead, Abby Arcane, who is investigating the swamp. Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu, your typical blind fortune teller with supernatural perceptions of the future. Ian Ziering is Hollywood has-been Daniel Cassidy, aka Blue Devil. Kevin Durand is Jason Woodrue, a brilliant, but villainous, scientist researching the swamp. It begins on 31 May.
  4. I've seen a few trails for this and it seems to be getting decent word of mouth, so could be worth a watch.
  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. 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.

    Perry Mason - HBO

    http://variety.com/2016/tv/news/robert-downey-jr-nic-pizzolatto-hbo-tv-1201836724/ Robert Downey Jr. had been trying to get a Perry Mason movie going at WB for a few years, but now it looks like it'll happen as a series at HBO, with True Detective's Nic Pizzolatto involved.
  8. 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.

    Future Man

    From Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg comes a series you may expect Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg to be behind. Whole series comes to Hulu on 14 November. Josh Hutcherson, from Hunger Games, plays Josh Futterman (Futterman/Future Man, geddit?) who is a janitor and gamer. He completes a game sent back from the future to find someone to save the future. Like The Last Starfighter. As they literally say. Turns out a cure for herpes has basically doomed mankind so he has to travel back in time to kill the creator. Ed Begly Jr., Haley Joel Osment and Keith David are also in it. Glenne Headly also appears, but she died after filming 5 episodes. See how many movie references you can spot.

    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.
  11. 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.

    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.
  13. 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.

    Stargirl

    Another show joining the DC Universe shows. Not sure it'll be connected to Titans or Doom Patrol. This one involves the Justice Society of America. Brec Bassinger is in the title role and her alter-ego Courtney Whitmore. Also Luke Wilson as Pat Dugan, pilot of Stripe, a 15-foot robot he invented. Lou Ferrigno Jr. as Rex Tyler/Hourman, Brian Stapf as Ted Grant/Wildcat, Henry Thomas as Charles McNider/Dr Mid-Nite. Amy Smart also playing Barbara Whitmore, Courtney's mother and Pat Dugan's new wife. Also Joy Osmanski, Neil Hopkins and Nelson Lee as Tigress, Sportsmaster and Dragon King, members of The Injustice Society. The show is being run by Geoff Johns. Won't be coming until early next year. Official synopsis First official pic unveiled at Wondercon yesterday

    Pennyworth

    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.

    Chernobyl (HBO/Sky)

    On 6 May (and 7 May on Sky), HBO and Sky start a new drama of the Chernobyl disaster. Not sure how many episodes (edit- 5 parts), but it's billed as a miniseries. Stars Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgard and Emily Watson, playing a Kremlin scientist, government official and nuclear physicist respectively. Looks like a few other familiar British and Irish faces in the trailer too.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.

  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
