Happy 2018!

So I'm going to try and see if we can live without specific TV shows being banned from discussion in this thread. This will probably last a day but at least we tried.

Looking up something unrelated on IMDB and I just learned that there's going to be a new British TV adaptation of the Moomin stories with a hell of a cast.

Taron Egerton - Moomintroll

Kate Winslet - Mrs. Fillyjonk

Rosamund Pik - Moominmamma

Richard Ayoade - The Ghost

Matt Berry - Moominpappa

This week's episode was their seasonal "introduce a new character and show what they were doing during the apocalypse." This time with Fred Armisen as a nice doofus (who is actually a cannibal serial killer) and how he ended up in Mexican prison.

My favorite thing about season 1 of Eagleheart is how the guy playing the boss spent an entire season with a fake gut and his cheeks puffed out just so they could do a joke about him losing weight in the finale.

Did you know: there are only 50 Canadian actors and they are forced to be in every genre show on Tv.

I can't tell if they're just re-using Canadian actors or if they're being ironic casting a bunch of actors who were main characters in Continuum in small parts in Travelers.

I'm assuming this is going to be good solely because I like all those actors but we'll see.

Yeah, it's pretty good. One of the last books Dan Simmons wrote before going completely broke brained. It's kind of an odd duck though as it is meticulously researched and historically accurate and then a giant monster shows up.

Watching The Gifted on Hulu and they for some reason screwed up last night's episodes. Fox aired two episodes but Hulu only showed me the first one and then said I was all caught up. Digging into the episode list and they also had another episode that was both episodes smashed together.

Apparently the new American Crime Story is good, thank gently caress.

Although I guess the commercials are kind of misleading as it is supposed to focus more on the guy who did the killing than just the Gianni Versace thing.

Unrelated but I read something interesting about Adult Swim's newest show, Hot Streets. Apparently the only reason it exists is because Justin Roiland went to bat for it with Mike Lazzo as they originally passed on the pilot. Roiland originally saw it when it was part of Channel 101, he fell in love with how weird it was and agreed to do a voice on it to help it get made.

I still don't understand why they tried to go full Shannarra when they could have done the prequel Word and Void series. Which has a much more TV friendly premise in that it was set in the modern day and followed a magical knight-errant who saw the future whenever he slept and used this to try and stop evil schemes. Even his magic powers were TV friendly in that he had reasons not to use them constantly and only brought them out as a last resort.

One thing I Didn't like about VH S2 was how they doubled down on all the vampire culture stuff, which was the worst part of season 1.

Is there a point where The Orville actually figures out what the gently caress it wants to be? Because, four episodes in, it's mildly enjoyable, but it's mostly Diet Coke Star Trek With Jokes and a Bigger Budget.

none of the characters have really clicked yet, and the guys that run navigation and weapons are EXTREMELY IRRITATING. also the crew has two humorless aliens, lol. I guess one is sassy and the other is constipated, but it still seems a bit redundant.
also I enjoy Norm McDonald's vocal appearances, but I don't know that I'm here for a blob man persistently sexually propositioning the ship's doctor.

They've already stated that for season two they're going to scale back on the joke stuff. Basically he said it will still be a humorous show but they don't feel like they have to be constantly joking any more.

CW's Charmed reboot is moving forward with a pilot ordered but one major change from the original announcement, which was that it was going to be a prequel series set in the 70s. Well, they've ditched that and instead it will be modern day and feature characters who are unconnected to the original show.

Forgive my Eric Andre Show ignorance but is this a Between Two Ferns style thing or are they not actually in on it?

Some people are in on it but some are just showing up because their agent pushed to get them on any "talk show" they could and didn't do their research.

Rule of thumb for Eric Andre Show, is it a comedian? Then they knew it was going to be a joke show. Is it a reality show star? They had no clue.

The other major thing about Eric Andre is that even if someone knew that it was going to be a joke show Eric Andre still went out of his way to mess with them. For example Howie Mandel was on because he was a fan but they did a bunch of stuff specifically because they knew it would mess with him, like putting a dead squid under the chair.

He knew beforehand that they did things specifically to make their guests uncomfortable so those kind of shenanigans had to be expected. You also have things like the lead singer of 311 being waterboarded or Jack Black being electrocuted multiple times.
