Would you watch a Zatanna based tv show?

The folks over at Smallville certainly nailed the look for the Zatanna character for the upcoming episode featuring that character. If the episode is good and you like the character , would you watch a series based aroun her character??

I don't know. She's kind of been done to death lately.

If they're keeping the Zatanna that they picked for Smallville: MOST LIKELY (just look at the pics!).

Otherwise... probably not.

No matter how she is portrayed on the show they would need some type of hook.
I see a Zatanna show as Dresden Files with a female lead at its core. Well that and fishnest vs trench coat so I imagine more would stick with it for longer just for that.

No, I wouldn't.

Such a show would follow the same pattern as too many other shows these days. The female lead would wear skimpy outfits leading people to complain that the show is sexist when in reality she'd be running around manhandling guys twice her size, being utterly infallible, never losing a fight and being 100% perfect while her male cast mates screw up routinely, keep "dark secrets", cheat on their girlfriends (or beat them up), lose their shirts every week and all of the other usual tactics.

"But it's not sexist because she's wearing fishnets!"

I could see this show as a good lead in to Supernatural. Perhaps even a little darker than that show. Season one could have her searching for her father who disappeared with the reveal of the big bad at the very end. This would allow us to get some great magic based DC characters on screen that probably otherwise will never appear. Dr. Fate, Etrigan, and the list goes on.
I would save the fishnets for her on stage stuff and give her something a little more aggressive for her magic battles. Would definitely watch.

Exactly what I was thinking. It has the potential to be a great supernatural type series, something almost like a Vertigo title come to screen. Guest characters like Fate would just make me want to watch such a show even more.

Re: Would you watch a Zatanna based tv show?

I know I would watch. Not only is the lady who plays the character pretty much perfect in the looks department the Zatanna character and concept intruiges me. I like the take Icemizer laid out as well.

I'd be a regular viewer for sure....

Re: Would you watch a Zatanna based tv show?

I'd absolutely watch. Zatanna is a great character. I've had some of the same thoughts as others have expressed regarding the best way to make a Zatanna movie or TV series: The Dresden Files is something that sprang to mind for me, too, as was the notion of bringing in a lot of DC's supernatural characters like Etrigan and the Phantom Stranger, and that Zatanna should just wear her comics costume during her stage show.

I think it'd be best if it was a horror/fantasy, rather than a costumed superhero show.
