SyFy's already got too many light comic shows. They should take a page from the rest of cable and not be afraid to build a series around a potentially off-putting anti-hero.

But of course, they'll just do what they're used to doing.
Yeah, I mean, what's up with the light comic shows like Stargate Universe, or Caprica, or BSG? I mean, COME ON, give me some serious DRAMA already...

SyFy needs to greenlight RHW's space opera first. Then they can do whatever else they want.
Wouldn't they just fire him after the second season and then dumb the premise down so the "sci fi geeks" could understand it, and then play the dumbed down version for three more seasons?

If any of those are still airing, then I am going to be very very angry nobody told me about it because I was under the definite impression they'd all been cancelled.

But Stargate has never been anything more than lightweight until SGU when it just became unwatchable.

At this point, I'd even watch that. But Kevin Sorbo is a deal-killer.

There might be a reason why they aren't airing. And why Sci Fi does light comic action shows. Because people watch them.

And no one watched SGU either.

Re: Booster Gold (SyFy)

“Dancing girls in every episode!” Dan Jurgens on a Possible BOOSTER GOLD TV Series [Exclusive!]

DJ: For a general audience, the pattern of Booster Gold Volume One probably fits best. The book that Geoff Johns, Jeff Katz and I did was a little more “inside baseball”, if you will, keying on cool moments in DC’s history.
Plus, when you look at Booster’s original concept, which is being both hero and fame whore, well, I think that seems even more tuned in with our world today than it did when I first created him. I think that tanslates quite well to TV.
There more in the interview...be sure to read it all.

Re: Booster Gold (SyFy)

The original Booster Gold concept lends itself very well to adaptation to the screen. Now that Chuck is coming to an end, Ryan McPartlin would be perfect to play Booster.

^ He would be great. So who Ben Browder as Temis I believe suggested. There are all kinds of fun directions they could go with this show.

Hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Honestly, I couldn't be happier if they did keep doing stuff like Eureka, Warehouse 13, and Sanctuary. Those are three of my absolute favorite, and as interesting as dramatic stuff like BSG, or The Walking Dead can be, I still by far prefer fun stuff to dramatic stuff. I still don't understand why people seem to have such a problem with light comedic stuff, not everything needs to be a deep dramatic show, sometimes stuff can just be entertaining. Now, that's not to say that I don't enjoy deep dramatic stuff, because I really do, (I'm going crazy not being to watch Game of Thrones,) but sometimes it can be nice to watch something that actually makes you feel good, instead of depressed.

Re: Booster Gold (SyFy)

I thought Eric Martsolf nailed Booster Gold in that Smallville episode. They should get him for this if it ever happens.

Re: Booster Gold (SyFy)

It seems like Syfy announces a ton of development pickups... and probably every other network does the same -- I don't know, I don't follow this stuff that closely.

But for those who do, about what % of the projects that Syfy announces actually make it to the pilot stage, and ultimately, to series?

Re: Booster Gold (SyFy)

My biggest problem with Booster is he has no rouges gallery to play off of. I am sure we could borrow some secondary villians from the DC universe to populate this but who to choose? There are a few time traveling Villians they could toss in and Per Degaton would be my number one choice. An end of season LSH cliffhanger appearance is almost a must. Will they dare to base him in Metropolis?

I don't know the exact %, but there is a lot of stuff that we hear about that doesn't make it past the pilot or script stage. So I wouldn't get any hopes up until we actually see at least a second or third episode of the show.

They could follow the lead of the original series and have the criminal organization "the 1000" as the main bad guys, with various villains in their employ.
