Rosswell? We are running out of properties to revive
They announced Roswell ages ago.
That “immigration twist” bit makes my skin crawl.
Didn’t they announce a new Party of Five with a similar twist???
And it really irks me because it was already an undercurrent in the original Roswell, except it was understated and actually developed. Going at it face-front is just…icky.
Exact wording too.
I hope they build a wall to keep those aliens out.
And make the aliens pay for it!
I hope they build a wall to keep those… uh… whatever those party of five are… out.
And make all five of them pay for it!
“Party of 5 too many anchor kids” is what we were looking for, sorry.
Try your luck next time on Wheel of Fortune.
Looking good-ish. Do we want a separate thread for the show?
I mean, it was a book. Feels like a seperate thread would be a good place to hold general franchise discussion for those fans.
It was indeed a book. A very good one at that.
I sense it will get enough attention to deserve one from this crowd.
I think that’s a good idea.
io9 gave it a much more lukewarm review, though they were also pretty fixated on the fact that Kovac’s an asian man in a white man’s body and seem to let it affect their enjoyment of the show.
Io9 has become an awful sack of shit compared to it’s glory days
Alan Sepinwall was mixed on it too:
Yet despite the leaden pacing and smugness of the whole thing, I could never get myself to quit Altered Carbon. I kept resolving to stop after the second episode, the fourth, etc., and there would always be some kind of carrot on a stick — a remarkable action sequence, an unexpected burst of humor from what’s largely a grimdark show, an intriguing new application of the body swapping concept, the leading man reminding me of why I began to think of The Killing as a Joel Kinnaman delivery system — that kept me going.
