Television News & Miscellany


A lot of people seem to miss the point of a highly-rated show being canceled. They aren’t going to bring back a poorly-rated show just because they canceled a highly-rated show. Don’t understand that logic.


Lil Dicky is fucking hysterical. I am very happy about this.


Pillow Talking is an incredible video.


LA’s Finest is go! Canadian broadcaster Bell Media has revealed that it has struck a deal with Sony Pictures Television for the Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union-fronted spin-off of the Bad Boys film franchise. It will air the 13-part series on one of its specialty entertainment channels.

The series stars Union as Syd Burnett, last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, having left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective and pursue all the fun LA offers. But things get a little crazy when her new partner, Nancy McKenna, played by Alba, a working mom with an equally complex past, learns that Syd’s unapologetic lifestyle might be masking a greater personal secret. These two have completely different approaches and don’t agree on much, but they find common ground when it comes to taking on the most dangerous criminals in L.A. in this action-packed, character-driven drama.



Oh hey, that’s cool news. It’s a pretty unique book, and could make for a great little show.


The trouble with doing a spin-off is, eventually, once Roseanne’s gone through the usual Hollywood contrition cycle and there’s a turn-over at network management, someone’ll have the great idea to give her a cameo and suddenly it’s a platform for her redemption comeback.


Also, as the creator of the characters and the original show, she’d make a load of money off a spin-off anyway, even without being involved.


Could go here or the Play Thread, but:


’Cobra Kai’ stars reveal the ‘Karate Kid’ lines they just can’t escape



Doctor Who writer and exec producer Russell T Davies is penning a dystopian family drama for BBC One, produced by Happy Valley firm Red Production Company.

The British public broadcaster has ordered Years and Years from the pair, which will follow a busy family from Manchester with their lives converging on one crucial night in 2019. The story will then accelerate into the future, following the lives and loves of the Lyons over the next 15 years as Britain withdraws from Europe, America becomes a lone wolf, China asserts itself, and a new world begins to form. Politicians Vivienne Rook then begins her rise to power – that new breed of politician, an entertainer, a rebel, a trickster and a terror, leading the family into an unknown future that they must navigate through.


Sounds great. He kind of touched on that stuff with the ‘Turn Left’ episode of Doctor Who which is one of my favourites.


He voted Remain then?


Not entirely a surprise is it? He’s about as ‘liberal elite’ as a bloke from Swansea can be :smile:
