I watched the first 3 episodes of The Son and I like it so far. It's not pefect by any stretch...but there is enough there to make me want to see this through to the end of it's 10 Episode run. It's great to see Pierce Brosnan back on TV.

I also checked out the first episode of Trial & Error and I thought it was hilarious. Right off the top, it seems like they took the best guest star off of Dexter and decided to give it a spin of sorts. Instead of playing a serial killer, he's just accused of being one....with a comedic bent to it. Is it me...but is John Lithgow's character name Larry Henderson suppose to be a winking nod to Harry and the Hendersons? Larry/Harry Henderson.

So apparently there's a reboot of The Gong Show in the works, produced by Will Arnett, and they announced tthat UK stand-up legend Tommy Maitland will be the host.


Look at that picture closely.

Yeah, I can see it now. But I NEVER would have guessed it was him.

First preview for Orville:


Gotta tell you, this is eerily close to an idea I was toying with when I was in college... and that, frankly, a LOT of Trekkie fans have played with.  There have been fan films like this, but because it's Seth McFarlane, it got made.  No idea if this is going to be good or not, or if it'll be more than what I expect... but it will have to be in order to stay on the air.  Hopes aren't that high, but as a SF fan and comedy fan, I hope I'm wrong.  We shall see, I suppose.

You beat me to it. I came here to post the same trailer. I like what I'm seeing. Makes me want to watch Galaxy Quest. As for this show, yeah, I'll tune it. But this is FOX, it's already DOA. The ratings won't be there and FOX is always quick to abandon a series if there is any hint that it's sinking.

I straight up admit that I'm a hard lay sometimes for SF, I didn't like Guardians Of The Galaxy despite loving the trailers, and I'm curious... but yeah, I think it'll be DOA as well b/c of Fox.  Probably fun for binging on streaming, but not something to tune into.  But there ARE enough Trek fans worldwide for the streaming rights to possibly be worth something.  But if real Trek can't work on TV anymore (evidently), how could fake Trek fare?

The thing that gets me is the stakes, I don't get the stakes (and got into an argument on io9 about it).  Galaxy Quest had great stakes, stay alive but also help the Thermians, which requires the crew to pretend to be the crew.  But individually, they all have stakes as well:  Tim Allen wants adulation but needs to be more humble, Alan Rickman wants his words to MEAN something, Guy wants to be part of the show but also wants to survive until the end, etc.  I'm not getting any of that from this.

Just watched the first two episodes of Claws and it's interesting, but a bit confusing in tone. The first episode was very serious in tone, but the second episode....even though it has serious stuff going on, was veering into comedic territory. By that I mean that Dean Norris is hamming it up like nobodies business. It's fun...just not sure what they are trying to do as far as an overall feel. I'm definitely on board though because what comes to mind is 'Breaking Bad....in Miami....well, Manatee Florida". Kinda.  Biggest WTF for me is Judy Reyes' role. She plays a Butch Lesbian....far removed from her role in Scrubs. She's practically unrecognizable here.

Ladies and Gentlemen... the new Doctor Who.


Very interesting, and obviously controversial amongst, well, the regressive types who don't deal well with change.

Checked out the first episode of Snowfall. Really like what I'm seeing. Cinematic look. Not a typical 'TV Show'. Cross between Blow and Boyz In The Hood. I'm on board for this the rest of the way. Not sure if this is a Mini Series Event or an ongoing Series.

Also checked out the first episode of Salvation. It's a 'Meteor heading straight for Earth' plot. It played okay. Not the best...but certainly not the worst. My only concern is that this is on CBS which has a horrible track record with regards to these kinds of Summer Series. Just look at Under The Dome, Zoo, Extant and you will see my concern where Salvation could end up going. For now, I'm willing to give the series a chance.
