Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

A lot of these pilots sound pretty iffy - the Emmerich one has also been called Antichrist, which gives you a little hint about what it's really all about. The main character will be the only guy in the world who knows that it's End Times (for Dewey Crowe? they need him in this show), other than Martin Landau, his only mentor and ally. One man against Satan!

Revolution could also be a waste of time - The Walking Dead sans zombies, why bother? The fact that they're casting pretty bland blonde types doesn't look hopeful. They need a John Bernthal type or two. Midnight Sun sounded like another stab at The Event, until they cast Titus Welliver in the lead. Even then, one actor can't carry a whole show.

I've been burned too many times by being hopeful based on nothing other than a vague description - time travel dinosaur show, how can they fuck that up??? - so until proven otherwise, they're all flops.
