  1. Hey, so I was thinking the other day that we don't really have a thread for TV shows that don't generate enough discussion to warrant their own threads, but you might want to discuss them when something important happens or whatever. Like for example, the other day there was random discussion of "Breaking Bad" buried in the "what was the last film you watched?" thread, that will never be easily found in a search. Of course the individual threads should continue, so I'll link them here. If I missed any let me know! http://jwfan.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=9334'>24http://jwfan.com/forums
  2. This will for sure be the best new show on television next year. The books this show is based on are on par with Lord of the Rings quality wise, but more realistic, dark and gritty. By the way "Game of Thrones" is scored by oscar winner Stephen Warbeck, not bad in my eyes and this further shows the ambition and quality HBO is known for! This is a 10 minutes behind the scenes look
  3. Couldn't find one. And damn it the show deserves one! Mid season finale for Season 4 just wrapped up. Glad to see them . It was also probably the best of the series (entire show, for you UKers), perhaps even better than the series premier.
  4. I noticed something cool during last night's new Galactica. Might've just been imagining things, but it seemed to me that at least part of the battle that consumed the last two acts was heavily influenced by, if not a direct homage to, the Battle of Yavin. Mainly the control/command room, the distorted voices over the radio (this was the one that made me realize it), and even some of the cockpit shots when Vipers were shot down. I know I might be the only one here who saw this, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
  5. I was one of those that grew up with the late Tom Baker stories, and I wanted to BE Peter Davison when I was littler....Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy weren't helped by some dumb stories (it never really got any better than Tom Baker and the Genesis of the Daleks, story-wise....though Colin Baker had a few good'uns to chew on....) And so, 16 years have passed since the good Doctor and Ace went off for that cup of tea, and in a little under 24 hours a new series starts......finally....... .....not to discard the Paul McGann show, but it just wasn't Dr Who.....not really.....half human, huh?.
  6. 'WandaVision' Disney+ release date leaks and it's way sooner than expected
  7. Martin Freeman will play the William H Macy character, and Billy Bob Thornton is playing a new character Show is exec produced by the Coen Brothers, and the pilot is written by Noah Hawley (Bones, The Unusuals, My Generation) and directed by Adam Bernstein (Breaking Bad, Californication, House of Lies) http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/sherlocks-martin-freeman-fargo-637395
  8. AMC has greenlit a pilot for a Saul Goodman spinoff, set before the events of Breaking Bad. http://www.joblo.com/joblo/news/50266
  9. Admin note: Continuation of the original thread What was that all about? Just savin' the world.
  10. As I predicted, they are no longer referring to the 8 episodes that aired in 2012 as "Season 5 Part 1", it's just "Season 5". The 8 episodes airing this July-Aug are "Season 6". Here's the press release for the Season 5 DVD/Blu Ray! (There are no spoilers within for Season 5 or 6)
  11. So, these are the shows with Emmy nominations this year: Outstanding Drama Series “Better Call Saul” (AMC) “The Crown” (Netflix) “The Handmaid’s Tale” (Hulu) “Killing Eve” (BBC America) “The Mandalorian” (Disney+) “Ozark” (Netflix) “Stranger Things” (Netflix) “Succession” (HBO) Outstanding Comedy Series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” (HBO) “The Good Place” (NBC) “Dead to Me” (Netflix) “Insecure” (HBO) “The Kominsky Method” (Netflix) “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” (Amazon Prime Video) “Schitt’s Creek” (Pop TV) “What We Do in the Shadows” (FX)
  12. Ed Harris joins the cast of HBO's Westworld. By god! He'll be playing 'the man in black': http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/ed-harris-set-as-key-724626
  13. Here's something that's actually nostalgic by now: the 2 part episode on TV shows. Trek fans know those all too well, with classic 2 part or even 3 part episode arcs that became memorable and epic cliffhangers, like the beloved The Best of Both Worlds from TNG. As for myself, I grew up with the Justice League cartoon, and all of its episodes on the first 2 seasons were two-parter or three-parter. I loved being glued to the TV as a young boy when the JL heroes got stranded in a bad situation at the end of a Part 1, and then the situation being resolved on the Part 2.
  14. The Office is back, so I figured it deserved its own thread. The one last night was pretty good. I was a bit dissapointed at how it seemed a bit too dramatic for The Office, but it was still filled with tons of hilarious scenes. Angela: "Don't joke about that!"
  15. My brother introduced me to The Big Bang Theory sitcom. I think it's really great Normally not so much a fan of sitcoms (except maybe Friends and Life According to Jim sometimes) I have watched the entire Season 1 and I am waiting for Season 2-4 to come out here. Do you watch it, like it or hate it?
  16. As far as I know, it hasn't made an appearance in the U.S yet But I enjoyed every Episode of the 3 Episode pilot of this. What also stood out was the music, some of which was gripping. Plenty of lietmotif. Last night, Holmes was sitting around bored waiting for a case, and when he picked up the phone, his 'theme' as such began to play . And the finale of last night's one had gripping music. Decided to finally see who had composed the music, and apparently it is David Arnold and Michael Price. The 3 episodes are on BBC Iplayer if you're in Britain and missed the three episodes. I hope they ma
  17. Well this came out of nowhere http://www.comingsoon.net/news/tvnews.php?id=109380

  19. I noticed that there isn't a thread for this show here, so thought I'd start one. I just finished watching the second episode of Season 2 and wanted to know what other people's thoughts of this show are? There will be spoilers... I watched the first season on DVD which I think helped me appreciate it more than I would've on a week to week basis. The show started fairly strong, with a premise that was part X-Files, part Alias and part LOST. The "monster-of-the-week" format really doesn't do much for me these days, I guess because I'm such a follower of serialised shows like LOST, so the first
  20. Since 3 episodes have now been released on Blu-ray, and season one will be released this year, I think it's good to have a thread about this fine series. I received my Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Next Level only this morning and have watched the series pilot, Encounter at Farpoint. First of all, I have to say that this blu-ray looks rather spectacular. The early seasons of TNG always had that rather soft, fuzzy look to them, and since I only ever saw this pilot on VHS it's like seeing this for the first time. The image is crisp, sharp and detailed, the colors are vibrant. The Enterp
  21. I vote for Daily Show. Both are funny, but Colbert gets old after a while, and his show relies too much on puns. Daily Show addresses the issues better I think, and the fact that he doesn't need to be playing one character allows him to play a variety of characters, but still wrap things up as Jon Stewart in a very honest, three-dimensional way. Also his interviews are way better, in that he's not interrupting the interviewee every five seconds to tell a joke. I think his interviews are in many ways better than the main stream news interviews, but that's another discussion.
  22. I thought I should create a thread for Television music. I really like Star Trek TOS's music, and think that alot of TV shows should have Various composer, instead of just one reign of terror. I also recently discovered Tim Jones music for "Chuck" which, while not a masterpiece, has some good cues.
  23. Yes folks, it's finally happened. After the tragedy that was Firefly's axing and its brilliant movie followup - and a very long hiatus - Joss Whedon is ready to return to television with a brand spankin' new show called Dollhouse. Check out Whedonesque for more! Here's the description of the show: Echo (Eliza Dushku) [is] a young woman who is literally everybody's fantasy. She is one of a group of men and women who can be imprinted with personality packages, including memories, skills, language—even muscle memory—for different assignments. The assignments can be romantic, adventurous, outland
