Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

me too. Some series (like BSG) dont need a reboot but Sliders would benefit from one. I loved it and the series knew no bounds in terms of the stories but the limited production budget meant most of the effects were quite bad. Things have moved on so much and I can't wait to see what they come up with now. I hope they keep the whispering "Sliders" in the intro.

But BSG (2004) was a reboot - I’d rather wait and see, before judging.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Sliders was good to start with, but slowly went off the rails, I gave up on it before it finished.

I'll give any reboot a shot though.

I loved the 80s series when I was younger but the 2004 series was perfection and a prime example of how to do a series properly with great story, great characters, great production quality and hitting on the right spots on my realism factor with the sciencey stuff, physics and motion.

The last season was really bad. Quinn (the actor) had a falling out with them over something, I think it was to do with his brother not being kept in the series, and they both left. After that it went downhill big time.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Waterworld series in the works.

Quote:
Universal Content Productions is planning as a continuation of the original movie that will pick up twenty years later focusing on the same characters. No additional details are currently available nor is there any word on whether they will attempt to get the original actors to reprise their roles. The film’s producer John Davis is involved with the series and 10 Cloverfield Lane‘s Dan Trachtenberg has been attached as director. A network has not been identified yet, but this will be an expensive venture–as was the original film–so it will likely head to one of the major streaming services since they have been throwing a lot of money at their original productions of late. UCP is owned by NBCUniversal, so consider Peacock to be a likely landing spot for the series if it does go forward.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Fantastic, I loved the film. I would love to see something like this picked up by Apple, it is right up their street in terms on high end production ventures.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

South Park fans will be pleased at this.

Quote:
The creators of “South Park” have signed a new deal with ViacomCBS Inc. that will pay them more than $900 million over the next six years, one of the richest deals in TV history.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone will use the money to make new episodes of “South Park” for Viacom’s Comedy Central network and to create several spinoff movies for the company’s Paramount+ streaming service, the parties said Thursday. Their first project under the new deal will be a movie set in the world of “South Park” that will debut some time before the end of the year.

The deal with Parker and Stone is the clearest sign yet of ViacomCBS’s growing commitment to Paramount+. The streaming service trails the likes of Netflix and Disney+, but has added millions of subscribers since it rebranded in March. ViacomCBS is looking to the addition of “South Park” movies to accelerate its growth. The series remains the most popular TV show on Comedy Central.

Never cared for South Park. I wish they did this for Futurama.

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other TV Snippets

Joe Mollazzi is working on a pitch to Netfix for a miniseries to resolve the cliffhanger at the end of Dark Matter season 3.

Quote:
Finally started work on the pitch for the Dark Matter miniseries. I’ve spent the past week or so running through the basic story and structure, ultimately landing on a six episode arc that will cover the alien chapter originally planned for the show’s fourth season.

Set three years after the events of Episode 313, a missing player returns with the key to thwarting a massive alien invasion. In order to defeat this formidable enemy, unlikely alliances will be forged, long-held secrets will be revealed, and the seeds of an even greater threat will be sown.

All the cast have agreed to come back when and if it gets picked up. Just a matter of scheduling for those on other shows but perfectly doable.
