Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

The CW has ordered the Nancy Drew Spinoff series Tom Swift.

The character, described as a "Black, gay, billionaire inventor" previously appeared in a Season 2 backdoor pilot (Episode 15).

Given the late announcement, its likely to be a 13 episode season, with a Spring debut.

As far as I can tell, this is indeed another case of TV blatently converting a character, PC style. In the original books he is white, and afaik, not gay.

I like the Nancy Drew series, so obviously I saw him in the backdoor pilot.
He was ok, nothing special, but interesting. Of course, they had to make a big fuss about the whole gay thing.

I will give the season a try, and hope they concentrate on the adventures, if it turns out to just another load of pc/blm/gay preach, then I'll drop it.

Wow, amazing find, thanks … the whole lot used to be on YouTube but the BBC copyright claimed it a year or so ago. I’ve set my Freesat box to series record.

I am not sure about this at all. He has always been a very serious character and this looks more comedic and silly.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

I think the problem is we’ve never really seen as much of him as we might have liked. He’s always been the supporting character, even when he had longer sequences with Nat in Endgame. He is certainly a bit broody early on in the MCU and he’s in a very dark place at the beginning of Endgame but then he has lost his entire family in the snap. We don’t yet know what getting them back has done to him.

So far, all the MCU TV series have stayed true to the continuity, not taking liberties with the characters but allowing them to grow and develop in their own space. I have no reason to doubt they’ll manage the same here.
