"Looks?" All I noticed were the slightly golden-hued woman and some video-game creatures whose appearance I didn't really notice much beyond how fakey and CGI they looked. But it all went by so fast. Maybe if someone could provide screencaps, I could evaluate it better.

It looks generically bleak and tedious to me, but if Rockne O'Bannon is involved it might be good.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

I'm really looking forward to this. So far I've like what I've seen in all of the videos, I find the premise interesting, it has a great cast, and I liked O'Bannon's work on Farscape. There are a couple of behind the scenes videos on the show/game website that give more of an idea what to expect.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

I finally saw the Defiance trailer and the CGI does look too much like a video game. It's a bit cartoonish and fake looking.

I could accept video game looks if the characters and story are strong. I know that TV can't have a movie budget, it just needs to look better than something somebody made in their garage.

Beneath - ABC.

Beneath is described as a supernatural drama about the unusual changes that befall a town after an energy company comes drilling for natural gas and unleashes something far more powerful.

Wonder which political party will grab onto this. Democrats will say "See this is what happens when you allow more drilling!"

Republicans will say "See! This is whath appens when you don't let us drill for oil and go for other things." lol

Supernatural Western in devel. from ‘Lost’s’ Carlton Cuse for NBC

‘The Sixth Gun’ is about six magical guns in the Old West that possesses otherworldly powers . The Sixth gun, was the most powerful and dangerous of all, had vanished without a trace. When it suddenly resurfaces in the hands of an innocent girl named Becky Montcrief, dark forces reawaken and vile men long thought dead set their sights on killing Becky and retrieving the gun for themselves. Only a gunfighter with a shadowy past named Drake Sinclair stands in the way of the evil that looms.
Cuse will be working with screenwriter Ryan Condal to adapt Oni Press’ graphic novel series ‘The Sixth Gun’ which was created by Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt.
Besides scribing the teleplay, Condal will serve as executive producer along with Cuse
this may be the only hope to see a supernatural Western getting made.
‘Lost’s’ Carlton Cuse To Develop Supernatural Western For NBC

interesting idea. After the big budget Hollywood feature Cowboys vs Aliens plot mess I think I would prefer a more traditional TV western like Hell on Wheels (which I didn't like personally).
I'm still looking forward to the modern Western genre Longmire when it appears on Hulu or Netflix since I missed the first run this Summer.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

TNT developing series based on Koontz's Frankenstein novels.

It is set in present-day New Orleans and follows Victor Helios (Frankenstein) and his creation 200 years after they thought they killed each other in a battle in the Arctic. The creature has survived and Victor has used science to keep himself alive – and they’re now in the same city unbeknownst to each other. Victor has engineered a new race of bizarre beings who answer to him, and when the creature learns that Victor is alive, an epic war ensues built on 200 years of pent-up rage, with New Orleans caught in the middle.
Sounds ambitious to say the least!

Well, both of those last ones sound pretty intriguing.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

There Is No God: Twilight the TV series in the works?

"They're already onto the [Breaking Dawn] follow-up ... [a] TV show or film spinoff, merely set in the same world as the one in the movies but not featuring the main trio, is being seriously considered, [with] The Wolf Pack [as] one area of interest."
The CW would be the place for it but they already have The Vampire Diaries...ABC Family maybe?
