Is this thread a commentary of the originality of Hollywood (/Toronto/Vancouver) storylines?

If along comes something original, like say a Space Western with Hookers but without Aliens, it should prolly be CANCD immediately.

Things have some a long ways since the Adam West show, Lois n Clark, Mutant X, Smallville and the old retro Wonder Woman series


not sure if this is a thread or commentary or what but here's a summary on Flash and Legion

http://www.metacritic.com/tv/legion

Based on the X-Men comics character, David Haller (Dan Stevens) was diagnosed as schizophrenic as a child and currently institutionalized. His routine at a psychiatric hospital is changed with the arrival of a new patient named Syd (Rachel Keller) which triggers the discovery that the voices and visions he has may be real

http://www.metacritic.com/tv/the-flash-2014

The spinoff of The CW's Arrow finds Central City forensic assistant Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) with superhuman speed after being struck by a bolt of lightning during an accident at a particle accelerator. With the help of three scientists at Harrison Wells' S.T.A.R. Lab, he helps the citizens of Central City as he seeks answers to his mother's murder.



The Flash | Extended Trailer | The CW
36 million hits



Legion Official Trailer #1 [HD] | An Original Series From FX and Marvel
almost 4 million, 3.5 + million hits


the other end of the spectrum might be shows like
'Walking Dead' or weird stuff like 'Preacher', Outcast, iZombie, XIII or any of the big fanboy and fangirl followings of Japanese anime...they say Joss something draws inspiration from Japan animations

Also the 'motion-comics' thing is interesting

anyways here's Preacher

Looks like the 'super-hero' or comicbook genre will be around for a while yet

... fully loaded, safety off...


Legion is unique, even dare I say, ground breaking tv. It's not the usual fast clip tv, so one needs to be patient to appreciate it. I would suggest watching multiple episodes at a time.

Will binge watch soon and probably check the Flash and Legion

Iron Fist was generally shit on by the critics
bad reviews at meta critic and rotten tomatoes

fan consensus on twitter, the boards, forums say its generally ok, some good moments but lot of criticism too


maybe IronFist is already a flop
or will Marvel turn it around

Just finished Iron Fist. Mildly disappointed, because Luke Cage and Daredevil were soooo superior. ( Jessica Jones was superior thanks in large part to ...well,

Yeah, Iron Fist was okay but I think it's the weakest of the 4 shows. I am still looking forward to The Defenders.

I hear The Flash's computer has the same voice as Inara.

If these shows give our BDH more work, then I'm all for it.

Morena really scored big in Deadpool. Awesome flick, and she had great exposure... and, not just the nekkid scenes.

Adam still on The Last Ship
Nathan - pretty much what ever he wants now
Alan- plate seems pretty full...
Gina - seems to be able to do what she wants while putting family first...

Jewel and Sean seem to be the only ones who really to not hit it super big, but still see them, from time to time. Didn't mean to wander down that path, but still glad to see the BDH doin' well.

( RIP Ron )

I have been getting a feeling about attitudes toward Firefly.
It seems the cast are held in great esteem, looked upon wonderfully, and the scriptwriters are viewed favorably, while the execs are (rightfully) getting exposed for what they are, and Joss has been tarnishing his star with his nonsense, woman-hating, and twitter gibberish.

Of course, that might merely be the way I see it.

JSF - I'll just say I agree 100% w/ you on that last part about Joss. He's blown a gasket, and IMO, it's damaging his rep.

That is all.

Ah, RWED...there's a reason I've lasted near 15yrs here. I avoid that place.

Thanks for the info. I knew Joss snapped with the election, but dang.

Ok some day I will get into these comicbook tv shows, i might take a few days off and binge watch or maybe some free weekend buy or download some boxset and I will know whats good and whats not

Here's what I understand copy now from the blogs and boards

A Marvel series Inhumans in some reviews it is getting wrecked by critics but some scifi fans and Marvel comicbook fans enjoy it, they are not Superhumans nor Mutant they are some kind of 'alien' people who live on the Moon and it ties into Marvel's cinema world and the Agents of Shield shows etc they have some kind of weird big ugly looking space dog who can fly, teleport or warp across time?


The Gifted? Fox own the rights to the X-men concept and mutants and they have this new series called 'The Gifted', some characters seem to be the same as characters featured in the Xmen movie franchise but I am not sure its the same fictional universe

Gotham as I understand it is some kind of prequel to the Batman movies, Bruce Wayne mythology

Riverdale is a dark twilightzone style teen drama television series based on the original characters by Archie Comics

The Strain from what I see might be a very enjoyable series, Vampire horror, Matrix look, themes are Disease Apoclaypse Doomsday type thing

Scifi series Dark Matter from the makers of Stargate also seems to be based on a comicbook

A British franchise Dredd is getting a series
and btw watch Dredd, not Stallone, the new one, its bleak and awesome















that's all I'm writing about for for now

Dredd tv show? With Karl Urban possibly returning as Judge Dredd?

Awesome!

I didn't like the first season of Daredevil, but I really liked the 2nd season. Jessica Jones was by far the best of the Marvel shows I've seen, and that includes the other non-Netflix shows that I've watched.

I still haven't watched Iron Fist.

I only made it a few episodes into Luke Cage before I got bored of it.

The episode that killed it for me was the whole scene where he's talking about his picture of Biggie Smalls on the wall. I used to hang out with a bunch of white guys in my early 20's and we all listened to rap music and had big speakers in our cars and acted like idiots. Half of them are dead or in jail now.

That particular part of that episode seemed to me like it was written by one of the guys I used to hang out with. Some stupid white kid in the late 90's pretending that he's from the hood. Nothing about Luke Cage felt genuine to me at all.. especially the dialogue that I'm sure the writers were just all circle jerking over.

Gotta disagree with you there. Stallone was good for a mid90s cheesy action Stallone flick, but he didn't really capture the spirit of the comic the way Urban did.


As far as the Netflix MCU shows go, I was disappointed by The Defenders. It had its moments but it just felt so rushed. The Iron Fist guy does better in it than his own show, but that isn't really saying much. I am looking forward to The Punisher, and which should be coming out soon.

Dark Matter got cancelled.

Haha yeah. I was just trollin'. I never read the comic, and I saw the movie once in the theatres when I was a kid. That's the only Judge Dredd I know. Just another average-at-best summer flick back in the low-point of cinema that was the decade from the mid-90's to the mid 2000's.



I thought Dark Matter already was cancelled? It's official now though, huh?


Maybe Netflix will pick it up? Tell me I live in a world where more people would want to see a season 4 of Dark Matter than a season 4 of Fuller House.

Yeah, I only mentioned DM because Jayneztown posted the trailer above.

Last I heard the producer is trying to get it back into comics, so I presume other live action options are dead.
