  1. 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. First two episodes are out there. Have been for a couple of days, so there doesn't seem to have been much buzz around it. I've not watched them myself yet, but a friend, who hated the movie, says these two episodes are decent enough.
  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. http://www.slashfilm.com/the-terror-tv-series/ Excerpt from the article: I've not read the novel (although it's one I keep meaning to), so it's curious as to how this will be anthologised. The only way I can imagine it is that it works as some sorth of True Detective-type thing, with a different story each season tied by a common theme. We'll have to wait and see I suppose.
  6. 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?
  7. 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.
  8. I'd been seeing stories for a while about a new DC Universe Harley Quinn cartoon but didn't pay much attention. I just knew Penny off Big Bang Theory was playing the main role. Happened upon a trailer this morning and it's not what I expected, being full of swearing and violence. They've assembled a pretty impressive cast too Kaley Cuoco as Harley Alan Tudyk as Joker and Clayface Diedrich Bader as Batman Jason Alexander as Cy Borgman Christopher Meloni as James Gordon Tony Hale as Doctor Psycho and Felix Faust Giancarlo Esposito as Lex Luthor Wanda Sykes as Queen of Fables J. B. Smoove as Frank the Plant James Adomian as Bane James Wolk as Superman And a bunch more, I think some from other cartoons too
  9. Star Trek adult animation. From Rick and Morty head writer Mike McMahan. It'll focus on the support crew on one of Starfleet's least important ships. McMahan is also the guy behind that twitter account which posted fake episode plots for an eighth TNG season.
  10. Sony Pictures Television and PlayStation Productions are making a TV show out of a videogame. Cobra Kai writer Michael Jonathan Smith is writing it based on an idea originally from Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick.
  11. 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.
  12. It's got a date now, so I'll drag it out of the general thread. Coming on 24 November.
  13. https://deadline.com/2021/09/she-ra-live-action-series-amazon-studios-1234832283/ Not a lot to report other than Amazon are making a live action version of She-Ra. I wonder what kind of budget they will give it.
  14. Third season of American Crime Story is about Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky. Lewinsky herself is involved as a producer. They're getting the cast together. It'll be based on the book A Vast Conspiracy: The Real Story of the Sex Scandal That Nearly Brought Down a President. Starts shooting in March and is currently aiming for 27 September airing. Clive Owen as Bill Clinton Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones Hillary Clinton hasn't been cast yet
  15. Roger Law attempting to bring back Spitting Image. After the success of 2DTV and Newzoids (I forgot that existed and never even saw it). And with satire being murdered by the real world. He's filmed a pilot and is attempting to bring it to a US network rather than UK.
  16. With Arrow finishing, it's star Stephen Amell is taking the lead role in Heels, for Starz. It's set in the world of independent professional wrestling. Amell is the owner of Duffy Wrestling Association in a town in Georgia, while also being the heel, Jack Spade, in the ring.
  17. https://deadline.com/2021/09/krapopolis-hannah-waddingham-richard-ayoade-matt-berry-dan-harmon-animated-series-1234828618/ It's Dan Harmon, so some people giving their opinion on him in the last day in the Rick & Morty thread probably won't like it. It's about a family of humans, gods, and monsters in mythical ancient Greece. Starring Hannah Waddingham, Richard Ayoade, Matt Berry, Pam Murphy and Duncan Trussell.
  18. Not much news and I almost skipped over it until I saw it's to star Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Donald Glover. And has an Atlanta writer/producer on board. So I'll give that a chance. Coming next year. https://deadline.com/2021/02/phoebe-waller-bridge-donald-glover-reboot-mr-mrs-smith-as-amazon-series-1234693358/
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. Amazon have picked up Greg Daniels Upload, described as a sci-fi romantic satire. Stars Andy Allo and Robbie Amell.
  22. This has just started in the UK last week (the second episode in on today at 5.30pm on Disney XD) and seems to be a pretty promising children's TV series. It has plenty of gags for older viewers and is ideal for fans of Adventure Time (although I doubt it will be quite as good). Plus the latest episode has loads of classic game references and pixel art by Paul Robertson:
  23. New Netflix adult animation from Pendleton Ward and Duncan Trussell. Starts 20 April.
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
