message 8: by Nerdy Werewolf (new)

Nerdy Werewolf (halogen) | 217 comments I can't decide if I'm excited about this or not? I almost feel like I'm obligated to be excited, but then that makes me feel like I'm not?

I don't understand even myself, sometimes?

Steph (angel4492) | 28429 comments Sam Esmail on What to Expect from the New ‘Battlestar Galactica’
Esmail is rebooting Battlestar Galactica !


'True Blood' Reboot in the Works at HBO
A reboot of True Blood ?! Ugh. Better be better 😆


kittykat AKA Jo Tortitude | 336 comments STEPH! Where do you find all these nuggets? You are doing good work by keeping us informed lol🤗.

Yea for The Nevers, that looks fab.

But I also have to say... REALLY? More reboots? Are these people not in tune with their viewing audience??? BG does not need a third iteration (or fourth if we include the prequel series). And True Blood version 2?

There are so many other SF and UF series that are screaming out for first time adaptations, why do we still keep getting reboots? The same outside of SFF, as things like Pretty Little Liars (and Criminal Mins which has only just finished), seems to have a reboot in the works too... I find it so frustrating.


message 17: by Steph, Just keep swimming … (new)

Steph (angel4492) | 28429 comments 😏 I'm a big fan of both, esp those para-related, so I try to share what I find when I do. Glad you're enjoying the updates.

I know, reboots feel like a lazy filler when they (production companies) don't have anything new to put out. I'm not sure how either of these will be, definitely agree that neither really need to be done, but I'd definitely check them out. 😆

Steph (angel4492) | 28429 comments The One (Netflix / 12 Mar)
(Based on The One by John Marrs)
The One is set five minutes in the future, in a world where a DNA test can find your perfect partner - the one person you're genetically predisposed to fall passionately in love with. No matter how good your relationship, which one of us can honestly say we haven't thought about whether there is someone better out there? What if a hair sample is all it takes to find them? The idea is simple, but the implications are explosive. We will never think of love and relationships in the same way again.

Anyone watching? I've got 1-2 episodes left TBW and I'm liking it. I have some issues with some threads, but it's entertaining. I haven't read the books though - ? for those who have ... how'd they do with the show?
