You state this like there's been some big turn around in casting this season. Which there hasn't.
Where'd you'd get that idea? It's no different this year than any year. That's whay I'm complaining about, it seems like it'll never change.

Meanwhile what does change is, America gets more diverse...I wonder if this is contributing to the decline in broadcast ratings, especially among younger viewers. Everyone focuses on technology as the cause but what if it's also that younger viewers aren't seeing shows that reflect who they are? The younger cohort is the most diverse of all age groups.

Maybe because you said "is Hollywood just giving up on anything more than token diversity?"
Which indicates a belief on your part that something had changed.

Best casting so far this season: Michael Ealy as JJ Abrams' Good (??) Robot.

With eyes like that of course the guy's an android.

'Intelligence' (and James Martinez)? What an odd name for a show!

But seriously, I hope Martinez' character doesn't get nicknamed "Dirty".

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Bruce Boxleitner's new show update:

http://lanterncitytv.com/

The new Steampunk show Lantern City, from executive producer Bruce Boxleitner, is an exciting foray into fan-inspired and fan-created television. It combines first-rate storytelling, innovative production design, and a rich world that fans will fall in love with. Even though it will blend great science fiction with dynamic storylines, at its heart the show asks two questions: how far would you go to be with the person you love and what lengths would you go to in order to survive?

Lantern City highlights the steampunk genre to create a one-of-a-kind television experience. Other properties have had Steampunk elements, but this is the first mainstream television show to proudly wear the label of Steampunk. Current fans of the subgenre will not be disappointed and it will attract a much wider audience to the long neglected world of Steampunk. The show is unique in that it allows viewers to be involved in the process – a first for any television show.

Lily Taylor joins JJ Abrams robot cop series.

Her role:

...Maldonado, an ambitious and determined police captain who is willing to make sacrifices for the greater good.
Where/when are they planning to show Lantern City? I've seen a lot of stuff like that with websites but they never seem to materialize, or when they do, its disappointing.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

I was actually just looking around at Lantern City's website, and Facebook page a couple weeks ago, and I don't think I saw anything about when/where it will air. There were references to a trailer being done or worked on, but not beyond that.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

I am still trying to figure out what the point of doing Renegades is. Renegades and Lantern City seem very similar in approach, although Lantern City is original enough that, in theory, it could become a "real" show whereas Renegades is in this nebulous area where it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, but it's not legally able to be a duck.
