  1. Joss Whedon signed on with HBO for The Nevers, "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." Some have noted similarity with a proposed comic book, Twist, described as "a Victorian female Batman," with which he was associated for a time. No premiere date as yet, but probably not before 2020, is my guess. Apparently Whedon is also still working on a Freeform series called Pippa Smith, Grown-up Detective. Don't hold your breath.
  2. We don't have a thread on HBO's Watchmen?! It's good. Far better than it has any right to be. Since it's just wrapped its first (only?) season, perhaps discussion here isn't on the cards. It's a shame, because there's a lot going on here; instead of a carbon-copy of the comic, Lindelof and his crew have created an inquiry into areas the original version tended to avoid--race, especially--and manage to do so in a way that isn't ham-fisted (well, except for the fact that racists are particularly ham-fisted lately, so that realism looks like satire). [I've not seen the finale yet, so perhaps this praise is premature]. Anyway, I wanted to share this interview because at a certain point it keys into a number of intersecting interests present on this board. It's at Queerty, which is a pretty worthless rag of a website--except that they've managed to score Lindelof for an interview and, well
  3. AV Club: In other words, each season of the show will have a different story and cast, a la American Horror Story.
  4. The Wrap breaks the news: Link to our thread on the never-materialized film.
  5. Link to our thread for the movie Westworld, which is just a 9-year-old stub with one post from PTC. Variety:

    Fahrenheit 451

    Ramin Bahrani is going to direct an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 for HBO. We don't seem to have a thread for the Truffaut film.
  7. I'm two episodes shy of finishing the first season of HBO's the Wire. It's probably the best thing I've ever seen on TV, but it's also a show that requires some warnings; it's chock-full of vulgarity and violence (and a tiny bit of nudity, which seems like a requirement for HBO). The Wire was created by David Simon, who was responsible for the book that started one of my favorite shows (Homicide: Life on the Streets). The Wire is similar: it also takes place in present-day Baltimore, focusing on the police and drug-runners. It's ultra-realistic, almost unsettlingly so. But that's one of its virtues--focusing on the people, their lives and their flaws also provide ample for grace and character development. The thirteen episodes act almost as one giant 780-minute story, and I'm literally hooked. Anyone else like it (or hate it, for that matter)? I haven't made it this far yet, but the fourth season has probably the highest rating for a TV on Metacritic (a whopping 98!)
  8. Here's the link to the book. Here's HBO's link to the show. The story's set during the Prohibition era about the rise of Atlantic City. Steve Buscemi looks the toughest I've ever seen him. Also has Michael Pitt (I hated him in Funny Games, or maybe I just hated the whole film), Michael Shannon (Pearl Harbor, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead), Stephen Graham (Sgt. Mike Ranney from Band of Brothers, Baby Face Nelson in Public Enemies), Kelly Macdonald (Choke, No Country For Old Men), and oh yeah, Michael Stuhlbarg (from A Serious Man).
  9. HBO: ... OLIVE KITTERIDGE tells the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive (Frances McDormand), whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center. Richard Jenkins portrays Olive's husband, Henry. The story, which spans 25 years over the four parts, focuses on Olive, a middle-school math teacher, and her relationships with Henry, the good-hearted town pharmacist, their son Christopher, who chafes at his mother's parenting style, and other denizens of their community. The supporting cast features Golden Globe® winner Bill Murray ("Lost in Translation") as Jack Kennison, a widower befriended by Olive; John Gallagher, Jr. (HBO's "The Newsroom") as Christopher, Olive and Henry's son; Emmy® nominee Peter Mullan ("Top of the Lake") as Jim O'Casey, a fellow teacher at Olive's school; Rosemarie DeWitt ("Mad Men") as Rachel Coulson, a shut-in who is one of Henry's customers at the pharmacy; Zoe Kazan ("Ruby Sparks") as Denise Thibodeau, who works at the pharmacy; and Ann Dowd ("Side Effects") as Bonnie, a Kitteridge family friend ...
