Ay up you mank gits, dem Hollywood types is makin' a Fargo-style telly series on Snatch, roit?.  All I can say is "we'is iddered an weeree doe keer abba eht."

Seriously, the idea of a Fargo style series about Snatch is interesting, then I saw who's making it: Crackle..  Who are literally the worst streaming company out there.  Their interface is terrible, their selection is lousy, and they've yet to make an original worth mentioning, let alone worth seeking out.  Could this be the turning point?  Colour me doubtful.

Oddly... I hated Fargo because of the accents.

Dana Carvey was on this morning promoting a new comedy about impressions. I believe called First
Impressions.

Just the few minutes was hilarious. It appears it might be stand up or Whose Line type of show. Could be fun.

Cancellation Watch 2016: What's Been Axed So Far




I'm very p*ssed that FOX cancelled The Grinder. This was the best and funniest new show for 2016. FOX, you f*cking SUCK! I f*cking HATE YOU!!!! F*CK!!!!!!! I also hate that Grandfathered, Agent Carter and Nashville also got the ax, although with those shows, I was expecting it. But Grinder? F*ck no!!! I don't consider Person of Interest as being cancelled because they were given a heads up to wrap up all the loose ends well in advance and besides, I didn't expect the series to go beyond 5 Seasons anyway.

There's talk of Nashville trying to find a new home (i keep thinking "Vancouver," but they mean new channel), but I would like The Grinder to find a new place that can appreciate good comedy that needs time to build.  In the age of streaming and Netflix and binge-watching, cancelling a show after one season really doesn't make much sense.

Uhhh...


I dunno.  I just don't know.  I mean, after "About A Boy," I try to give these adaptations a little leeway to let them be their own thing, but at the same time, being a remake just naturally invites comparison.  Especially when the original is so well done and well known.  And R-Rated, not network television friendly.

And where's Leo?

CBS' 'Limitless' Officially Canceled



F*CK YOU CBS!

Limitless was one of my favorite new shows this past season. It was original and more importantly, it was a damn fun show to watch, someting you don't normally associate with a procedural show. So, I say again......

F*CK YOU CBS!

Watched a marathon of The Detour and it's by far the funniest and most shocking comedy I've seen all year. I was shocked at how far they were able to push the envelope on TNT with regards to adult content.

Currently watching Feed The Beast. It has potential. I'm on board for the time being.

Checked out Queen of the South last night. Another series that has potential. But there were parts in the Pilot that I found to be very sloppy editing-wise. I'll stick with it for the time being as well.

Glad you liked the detour. I love it... So shocking as you said.

Feed the Beast and Animal Kingdom, my wife is watching and enjoying. I have not sat down with either yet.

I just watched the first two episodes of The American West and I like it a lot. The remaining 6 episodes have yet to air, but I'm definitely going to see it through to the end. TAW is kinda like those reenactments shows you see on The Discovery Channel. But this one is a little bit different. We all know the likes of Jesse James, Billy The Kid, General Custer, Wyatt Earp, Sitting Bull, Crazy Horse and other historical characters that make up America during this time. But I've never seen their stories told like this before. I'm sure when you were growing up, you heard about Jesse and only Jesse in his story, same goes for the other characters too. In TAW, all the characters are dumped into the same fishbowl and each story that is being told has a ripple of effect. What Jesse does here, Ulysses S. Grant is doing this, and what he is doing informs what Custer is doing over there. It's kind neat to see how everyone is tied to the other in some way or another. It makes this all seem like the ultimate TV series drama of sorts. Can't wait for episode 3.

Red Dwarf XI

I've been waiting forever for this.  They shot series XI and XII back to back last year, and the first episode airs near the end of next month in the UK.  Now, last time around I saw the episodes on Youtube, but I don't know if I'll be able to do that this time (that was four years ago!)... and I have no idea when the Blu-Ray of it comes out.  Hopefully soon.  As much as I liked seeing the eps as soon as possible, RD was always binge-watching for me, from way back in the VHS days (the only way to watch British programmes).

Anyway, pics!














Look at that freakin' cockpit!  i think it's meant to be Starbug's pilot house, but it's never looked that detailed or space-y before.  So many of these stills look cinematic and dramatic, while series X was a bit more flat and sitcom-y (due to production issues).  It'll be interesting to see how it all comes together.

Checked out the first episode of Geek!ng Out and I like it. This is the show that I wished Comic Book Men would be more like. I'm definitely on board for this season. Episode 1 is the 2016 Comic Con Special. The segment with Matt Damon was funny. He just proved that he can play any DC Character.
