Television News & Miscellany


#2898

Excellent news! I always felt the series would not work as a movie franchise, since the lead characters differ from book to book so you couldn’t tie it to one particular star. It would probably work better as a sort of anthology series like FARGO or TRUE DETECTIVE, where the cast changes but there is a common sensibility or theme.

The BBC also tend to do this kind of thing very well.

That’s a bit like the Red Riding film series, which was set at different times with different leads in each film.


#2902

Red Riding was slightly odd in that it was a UK TV mini-series that was released as a series of movies in the US.

There was an overall bigger story there though; Dublin Murder Squad’s books are mostly self-contained except that the main character in each was usually a supporting character in a previous one.

If anyone else who loves them wants to try and catch them filming the new specials…

Was it any good?


#2908

It may be, I didn’t even know it existed. There is too much scripted TV right now and a lot of is really good but nobody can keep up and there will be a contraction coming down the line.


#2909

I never watched it but reviews I saw said it wasn’t good.


#2910

The changes to the storyline dragged the show down and made it an uninteresting watch.


#2911

I liked the first season, but I’m not surprised it won’t continue. It did get a little too melodramatic at times. And the lack of monsters in the mist was a disappointment.


#2912

If they’re making a “carpool karaoke” series, we can hardly be said to be living in peak tv era. More rock bottom tv.


#2913

That’s the point of “Peak TV.” Quantity, not quality.


#2914

Speaking of quantity how many channels do you have?

Aside from the premium channels, I mostly have cable channels showing reruns of old network shows and so on.

Still I can understand it when people say nothing is really on


#2915

I can understand it too, it really means “I have no idea what other amazing programs are accessible in some way out there” :stuck_out_tongue:


#2916

Wow. Stephen King is in quite the 50/50 pattern.

Mist - miss
It - hit
Dark Tower - tanked

And aren’t there like nine more projects in the pipeline?


#2917

That’s 33/67.
