Joss Whedon to do a new sci fi series on HBO.

The Nevers is described as “a sci-fi epic about a gang of Victorian women who find themselves with unusual abilities, relentless enemies, and a mission that might change the world.”

Started watching sharp objects on HBO this week. Kind of pissed to remember this isn't Netflix and I have to wait 2 months to finish this thing up.

Very heavy usage of Led Zeppelin on the soundtrack drew me in.

This, my wife talked me into watching it. Little confusing watching the first episode, not really knowing the premise.

Me too. I can't believe HBO agreed to this. Not a fan of Whedon and hope this series flops and/or gets cancelled.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, 24 creators Joel Surnow and Bob Cochran are working with Fox to develop another revival of their hit torture drama, following 2014's 24: Live Another Day and last year’s 24: Legacy. Unlike those attempts, which focused on an older Jack Bauer and a non-Jack Bauer, this new 24 will feature the one kind of Jack Bauer that hasn’t appeared yet: young Jack Bauer.

Now this is a tv reboot I'm entirely on board for....ALF!

https://variety.com/2018/tv/news/alf-re ... 202892541/

Warner Bros. Television is in the early stages of developing a reboot of the classic sitcom “ALF,” Variety has confirmed with sources.

No writer is yet attached to the project


They actually haven't decided if it's a reboot or a continuation.

Wright's wife of 52 years died in 2017. In May 2018 he was reported to be living in Germany and in a relationship with a German male.

My gut says if you are a semi-homeless maybe-gay old guy, Germany has to be one of the top 4 or 5 countries to hang in. Good for him.

After that Legion season 2 finale, I'm kinda worried about anything he'd do to anyone.
