Hello TVIV goons. I love you all and hope everyone had a rad new years.

Thanks for being one of the most chill subforums despite the many disagreements and differences that crop up when discussing tee vee on this dead, gay comedy forum. Y'all are great, and I'm not just saying that b/c I might still be feeling some drugs from last night!!

ONE YEAR LATER posted:

Personally I am very looking forward to the Wheel of Time adaption that's coming to amazon later this year, it's one of my favorite dumb fantasy series and the casting info they've already released has me optimistic that it will be worth watching.

I am so afraid WoT is going to be bad. They should’ve done an adaptation focused on the original War of Power or the Aiel War or even the Seanchan. It’s going to be a tough adaptation... although imagining the Aiel history as Rand goes through the trials actually being shown could be amazing.

My biggest fear is they try to Game of Thrones it - although hopefully they edit out Mat getting raped and everyone laughing at him for it (because men can’t get raped)



Rosamund Pike as Moiraine tho. Will be worth it even if the adaptation ends up not being great.

Y: The Last Man is one of my favorite comics. I remember very closely following all the news of the supposed movie development a decade ago. I really am hoping against hope that the show does not end up sucking.

I wish they would have made it way back when Shia LaBeouf was being tossed around as a potential Yorick. I honestly think he woulda killed the role.

I mean they could go the Hercules/Xena route and just make it campy as gently caress, but I don't think that's going to hold people's interest very long.

This worked for Legend of the Seeker!

IIRC one problem with the remaster is that they couldn't actually remaster every single episode because there were issues with some of the masters.

Another problem is that Batman Beyond is bad

I don't want to go into the thread for spoilers but regarding The Witcher; is anything actually achieved by making the timeline of the show non-linear or is just for a twist or showing stuff off?

Yeah, they give you big clues about it via dialogue/etc from episode one. It's not a twist at all, just the only way to tell the short stories without relegating Yennefer to the back three episodes and Ciri to like the finale. They're all main characters in the saga, but those two are barely in the first two short story collections.

Today, I learned there is a Russian adaptation/remake of The Nanny that was so popular it remade the entire original episode order, then paid writers of the original show to help make more episodes-- some of which ended up being based off of scripts and ideas that were passed on during the original show's run.

Also there are a ridiculous amount of foreign language remakes of this show.

e: there was even a Spanish language American remake for Univision a couple years ago
