Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Apprently its just called 4400 (no 'The').

Teasers are never a great thing to to go by.
However, they certainly dont inspire me to want to see it.

It also seems the mysterious force involved here just loved to kidnap coloured people.

Then again, the shows basic description really gives that away;
Quote:
In the new version, 4400 overlooked, undervalued, or otherwise marginalized people who vanished without a trace over the last hundred years are all returned in an instant
I predict lots of PC & Political Preaching and an early exit from it by me, I'd love to be wrong, but I have little faith I will.

Seems very discriminatory to me. Abduct all the blacks and leave only whites on the planet

I'll give the first couple a watch and see how I feel.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

I am all for different characters with different backgrounds and stories but i am on the same page as Paul on this. If they are just using it as a platform to preach about BLM, immigration, war, police shootings and whatever else is going on in the US then i am not interested. The original was great so they have got no excuse. They know what works and what doesnt.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Very sadly Willie Garson aka Martin Lloyd from Stargate SG1 has passed away. He was only in three episodes but they were some of my favourite of the entire series and I would definitely put them in the top 10.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

A new version of Babylon 5 is in development at the CW.

J. Michael Straczynski will write and executive produce a ”from-the-ground-up“ new version of ’90s-era science fiction series

I don't think The CW is the right channel for that...

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets



I can't find enough emoticons and gifs to express my dismay. Even if they replicated the story and script word for word there is no way you can reproduce those acting performances. It wasn't just one person, it was all of them and I do not parrot these names of lightly: Captain Sheridan, Delenn, Vir, Londo, G'Kar, Garibaldi, Ivanova, Bester, even flipping Zathras for god sake. It is like Game of Thrones where there are so many amazing characters and performances and it doesn't need to be remade ever.

Possibly not a remake.
This from Claudia Christian:

Quote:
I know some of you saw the announcement that WB is doing a B5 reboot series and I know you have lots of questions for me like “Are you playing Ivanova?” “Are there going to be telepaths?” “What year is it taking place in?”
Well folks, I know nothing…..zip…nada. Joe has kept us in the loop from day one on this, because he wants us involved with the show, but we have no idea at this time what's in the script or what the story is. Only Joe knows that for now, so you should go bug him about it.
He won't tell you, but the results should be amusing. I personally am grateful that I will, once again, be uttering the great maker’s fabulous dialogue….but I know not what that will entail. Exciting, eh?

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Thank god, at least it is a type of continuation and not a remake. Absolute damn shame so many of the cast have passed away. For those of you who dont know Delenn, Vir, Londo, G'Kar, Garibaldi, Dr Franklin and Zack have left us, possibly a few more. The only surviving cast members are Sheridan, Ivanova and Lenir.

I dont know if the dude who scored the soundtrack is still alive but they need to get him back as well.












Watching those intros again has made me want to watch them all again. Such a phenomenal series.

At least J. Michael Straczynski is involved and will be writing it. That part should at least mean the scripts are decent.

Yeah. I just hope he gets carte blanche and complete free rein.
