    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?
  2. 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).

    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.

    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.

    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.
  6. So this is what Dave Filoni is doing after Clone Wars and Rebels. It is set prior to The Force Awakens and will follow Kazuda Xiono, a young pilot recruited by the Resistance and tasked with a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Seemingly dropping the CG of the prior shows and going for an anime-inspired look. The article says it will feature BB-8, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's guest appearances rather than regular. It's coming in autumn.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.

    Maniac

    Maniac, a dark comedy staring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill as two strangers drawn to a mysterious pharmaceutical trial. Unsurprisingly, things don't go as planned. Also stars Justin Theroux as the drug's inventor and Sally Field in a recurring role. It's a limited run 10-episode series directed by Cary Joji Fukunaga. Based on a Norwegian series of the same name. Seems to have some good ingredients at least. Streaming on 21 September. Teaser doesn't give much away.
  11. Anyone remember The Dresden Files, which lasted for a single season in 2007? Fox are going to give it another go (it was on Sci-Fi last time). Based on a series of books about Harry Dresden investigating supernatural stuff in a contemporary fantasy setting. Based in Chicago in a version of the modern world which has all the usual fantasy type creatures and magic.
  12. 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.
  13. https://deadline.com/2018/10/netflix-the-chronicles-of-narnia-tv-series-and-films-eone-1202475272/ Netflix have got the rights to all the books and to develop other stories in the universe, working with Entertainment One and The C.S. Lewis Company. It covers both movies and TV. It's apparently the first time one company got the rights to all the books. The previous movies and attempts to continue them must have been on a case-by-case basis. eOne and Sony were going to make another movie together, but eOne then decided they want to go bigger, got The C.S. Lewis Company to agree, and the whole thing ended up at Netflix.

    Origin

    New sci-fi from YouTube Premium. A bunch of people heading to another planet are abandoned on their ship after some sort of incident. They need to work together to survive, but one of them may not be who they appear to be. Stars Tom Felton and Natalia Tena. 10 episodes, some of which are directed by Paul W.S. Anderson.
  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. http://corporate.uktv.co.uk/news/article/celebrities-battle-it-out-dave-dara-o-briains-go-8-bit/ Starts Monday 5th September on Dave. so..? Usual Dave-level celebrities, playing videogames. Good or bad?
  17. 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.

    Resident Alien

    Alice versus zombie Xenomorphs! Alan Tudyk will star in a SyFy adaptation of the Dark Horse comic. He is Harry, a crash-landed alien who takes on the identity of a small town doctor. Described as a dark, twisted and comedic fish-out-of-water story. Apparently the comic has him solving mysteries and murders.
  19. They're giving a live-action Avatar another go, after that movie which doesn't exist. It's being run by the original animated show's creators/showrunners and will be on Netflix, in partnership with Nickelodeon. They specifically mention a culturally-appropriate, non-whitewashed cast and that Netflix are backing them in their vision to go even deeper into the characters, story, action, and world-building.

    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.
  22. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-34711492 Hopefully this will fare better than the movie adaptations.
  23. Trailer now online. All 13 episodes coming to Netflix February 1st 2013.
  24. Sacha Baron Cohen has a new 7-part show on US network Showtime. They've been keeping it under wraps, only teasing that he had something coming over the last few days and today revealed that it's starting this coming Sunday. The teaser looks like he'll be acting as different characters again and there's an interview with Dick Cheney. He gets him to sign his waterboarding kit.
