It is most assuredly a joke. Merged post into "New Shows" thread for now. In the unlikely event that tomorrow comes and it's not a joke you can make a new thread about it.

Confirmed joke.

I have the feeling - and not all the time - that they are trying too hard.
Definitely got that Gothic ~ Steampunk look down, and I don't hate Josh Harnett as the token Yank.

Having heard many of friends rave about this series (I don't have Showtime and it does not air on Canadian Netflix) I have always been curious about this series.  Last weekend, found season one on sale at HMV for 10 bucks, so on a lark I picked it up.  And I am glad I did.

I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!!!!!

My wife and I binged watched the entire 8 episodes in a day and then I ran down the next day to buy season two at full price...lol.

It has similarities to Allan Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (the comics, not the movie).... the lives of the great literary horror characters of the 19th Century tangled and intertwined as they battle a greater, darker evil.   Very compelling and brutal at times.  Both subtle and extravagant, while providing fresh takes on classic characters and yet staying true to the core elements.   We found it completely addicting.

Thank goodness, I have less than 4 weeks til season three is released!  Big Grin
Tried to watch the new rebooted MacGyver tonight.... I only lasted 30 minutes and then switched channels to watch THE GOOD PLACE (which was super funny!!!)...

MacGyver struck me as slickly formulaic.   Not that the original was Shakespeare or anything, but this just seemed too conventional and by the numbers.  But I might give it another episode since apparently the pilot was heavily recut and reshot when James Wan joined the production and may not be representative of the series proper.
After watching the terrible MacGyver remake pilot last week, I thought I would torture myself again by watching FOX's LETHAL WEAPON reboot....

...and surprise, it isn't terrible!!!

I missed the pilot, so this was the second episode in, but it recapped everything quickly in the first few moments and was very easy to follow along.  The episode was action packed, directed by McG, and looks gorgeous, capturing the feel of LA the same way the first two movies did.   The plot was standard introductory procedural mystery, elevated by the character beats and action scenes.

The stand-out was the performance of Clayne Crawford as our hero Martin Riggs.  He brings the right balance of likeable unstable/sad/tortured crazy to the role.

Daman Wayans as Murtaugh?  Well he ain't no Danny Glover, thats for sure.  I never cared for him as an actor, but in this role I found him enjoyable and he has a good rapport with Crawford.

The police side supporting cast are all generic and uninteresting.   But the Murtaugh family, just like in the movies, are highly enjoyable and steal their scenes.

One silly nitpick, Murtaugh does not use a Smith & Wesson revolver like he did in the movies.

So not a fantastic show, but surprising enjoyable and ripe with potential.   I will definitely check out the next few eps.

Not sure if this should go under New TV Shows or not, it is I believe a Webseries and everything is digital  these days....

The competition between Shared Comic Book Movie Universes has a new player, move aside Marvel and DC, and make way for VALIANT COMICS!

Now Valiant may not have the immediate mainstream brand recognition of as Marvel or DC, but it has been publishing probably the BEST WRITTEN superhero comic verse since its relaunch back in 2012.  

Valiant has already announced plans for movies, but to pave the way they are launching a digital series to introduce their characters to a wider audience.    

And they hired BAT IN THE SUN to produce them!!!!!!!!!!    I have said repeatedly over the years that DC or Marvel should hire these guys as they make the BEST onscreen adaptations ever done.  Their Batman stuff is incredible!!!   

So I am very excited for this project.  Big Grin

Both Frequency and Timeless are worth checking out.

Growing up, the first book series I remember hungrily reading was the OZ series by Frank L Baum... I loved these stories!  In many ways, this was my Harry Potter as a little kid.  Thus, I have always been interested in the many various onscreen interpretations of this beloved book series.

NBC has the newest addition to the OZ mythology, called THE EMERALD CITY, it sort of looks like a OZ meets Game of Thrones... LOL.
Who knows it might be good....



The trailer reminds me of the Sci-Fi mini called TIN MAN from a few years ago.... I really enjoyed that series and was always sorry it never continued with more adventures.

The Tin Man miniseries was great! I'll definitely give Emerald City a try, but hopefully they do something refreshing with the universe.
