Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

I "watched" episode one, and gave up before the end.

Maybe you need to already know what this is about, because I was totally lost.

Who’s showing it?

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Disney have revealed that WandaVision will have 9 episodes, not the previously expected 6.
It debuts on Jan 15th 2021, and ends on March 5th. Since that is only 8 weeks, its likely that 2 episodes will debut in the first week.

It's loosley based on Terry's book Guards! Guards!

Quote:
The Watch is generally regarded as a bunch of incompetents who walk around ringing their bells without accomplishing anything, which is largely accurate. Carrot's arrival changes this; Whereas the existing officers are either cynical, incompetent, mildly crooked or all three, Carrot is honest, straightforward and idealistic. Additionally, he is 6'6" tall and enormously strong. Having memorized the Laws and Ordinances of the Cities of Ankh and Morpork, on his first day he tries to arrest the head of the Thieves' Guild for theft (the Thieves' Guild is permitted a quota of legally licensed thieving, a concept that the book of ancient Laws does not take into account). Brought up as a dwarf – dwarves are a literal, dutiful people – Carrot has an absolute dedication and conscientiousness that unnerve his colleagues who view them as bordering on the suicidal in the face of the reality of Ankh-Morpork life. Carrot's policing style is reminiscent of traditional idealized portrayals of British police, but astoundingly, it actually seems to work.

Carrot's enthusiasm strikes a chord with Vimes, who decides that the Watch should try to carry out its ostensible duties. Vimes begins investigating the dragon's appearances, which leads to an acquaintance with Sybil Ramkin, a breeder of swamp dragons. Ramkin gives an underdeveloped dragon, Errol, to the Watch as a mascot.

Green Arrow and The Canaries not going forward at the CW.

No decision on The 100 prequel yet.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

No surprise there, dreadful title as well.

I think the 100 prequel has a far better chance.

I think the entire Arrowverse is suffering from franchise fatigue and needs to be canned.

yup, in contrast The 100 remained consistently strong right through to the end and I am very much looking forward to a prequel series.
