Speaking of shows with vaguely religious/spiritual themes, The Good Place is a comedy about a not particularly "good" woman (Kristen Bell) who dies and finds herself in an afterlife identified as "the good place" where she feels somewhat uncomfortable. Ted Danson is the "angel" responsible for the clerical error. The basic assumptions of this series--that one's afterlife is based on one's deeds--are obviously not Christian, but match many other religions and general feelings, I suppose. I haven't seen it. Writers are attempting to infuse both a continuing narrative, comparing the show to LOST. All episodes are available for streaming via NBC.com
We don't seem to have a thread on Xena: Warrior Princess--original or reboot--so I'll go ahead and start one. I'm not at all familiar with the original property, but this bit of news has raised my interest in the reboot: Javier Grillo-Marxuach also created/show-ran The Middleman, which is a small favorite of mine; he's currently working on The 100 (here's our thread on that show), which I've not seen. He's also--based on a couple of [very minor] social-media interactions with him as well as general observation on my part--quite a nice guy. He was also involved with Lost early on--he was a supervising producer and wrote several episodes--so here's our thread on that show.
