  1. 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.

    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.
  3. 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.

    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?
  5. This was announced ages ago and just earlier today I was wondering if it had been dumped. Now they've released a teaser, urging you not to watch. We've got Patrick Warburton as Lemony Snicket, Neil Patrick Harris as Olaf as well as Joan Cusack and Aasif Mandvi. Comes out Friday, 13 January, 2017.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  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
  10. John Krasinski will be the fifth Jack Ryan in a new TV show coming to Amazon. It's not been greenlit for a full series yet, but is expected to be. Carlton Cuse will run the show and Michael Bay will be a producer. They say it's not a direct adaptation of books, but a contemporary take on Ryan's days in the CIA with some book stuff used as source material.
  11. 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).
  12. 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.

    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.
  14. Trailer now online. All 13 episodes coming to Netflix February 1st 2013.
  15. Oh God, FX have gone and ordered a pilot for Mayans MC.
  16. Thought it was worth separating discussion of the upcoming TV show from The Avengers thread as it's now been given an official title and synopsis and more news/pictures/video should start trickling out over the coming weeks. A new piece of news that's just come out is that J. August Richards (Gunn from Angel) has also been cast in a 'secret' role. Let the speculation begin. My wild guess, maybe Luke Cage, that's a character that would allow them to add some superpowers to the mix but one who might not support a film in their own right.
  17. 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.
  18. It's not got a name yet, but the prequel is getting a prequel. Diego Luna is returning to play his Rogue One character, Cassian Andor, in a show for Disney+, the streaming service. It's set to be a spy thriller during the formative years of the Rebellion.

    The 4400 reboot

    Who remembers The 4400? The CW are rebooting it. It comes from Craig Sweeny and Taylor Elmore. Sweeny started his career on the original show and went on to create Limitless as well as working on stuff like Medium and Elementary. Elmore was on Justified and Cold Case. Will it actually get to finish this time?

    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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. BBC Studios are developing a 6-part series based on the Discworld books. From the name, I assume it's mainly based on the City Watch characters. They're not looking to restrict it to 6 episodes, but one which can have more series to follow. It's being produced with Pratchett's production company Narrativia and apparently looking for other partners to make it a major international co-production.

    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.
  25. It's been known for a while that they're working on a series set thousands of years before Game of Thrones. Casting has started, so maybe it's time for a thread. Naomi Watts and Josh Whitehouse have been cast as leads. GRRM used the name The Long Night in a post about Watts casting, but it's not officially been named yet. It's based on a story by George RR Martin and Jane Goldman, and Goldman is also showrunner.
