Thank you OOMVM. That was very kind. Is "all You Need is Kill' the name of a graphic novel?

Trailers for 'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' and 'Resurrection' (& S.H.I.E.L.D.):

http://io9.com/get-a-way-better-look...-mor-506072296

OUaTiW doesn't seem to have a whole lot to do with its "parent show," but it doesn't look too bad. Resurrection looks okay, but doesn't really interest me.

So far most of the Sci-Fi/Fantasy stuff I've seen for next season looks great.
My ranking based on level of interest based on the trailers would be:
Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D
Once Upon A Time In Wonderland
Almost Human
Dracula
Sleepy Hollow
Resurrection

The official descriptions of CBS' Intelligence.

Intelligence
INTELLIGENCE is a dramatic thriller starring Josh Holloway as a high-tech intelligence operative enhanced with a super-computer microchip in his brain. With this implant, Gabriel (Holloway) is the first human ever to be connected directly into the worldwide information grid and have complete access to Internet, WiFi, telephone and satellite data. He can hack into any data center and access key intel in the fight to protect the United States from its enemies. Leading the elite government cyber-security agency created to support him is Director Lillian Strand (Marg Helgenberger), a straightforward and efficient boss who oversees the unit’s missions. Strand assigns Riley Neal (Meghan Ory), a Secret Service agent, to protect Gabriel from outside threats, as well as from his appetite for reckless, unpredictable behavior and disregard for protocol. Other skilled members of the Cybercom team include Chris Jameson (Michael Rady) and Gonzalo “Gonzo” Rodriguez (James Martinez), two resourceful federal investigators. The brains behind the design of the chip is Dr. Shenendoah Cassidy (John Billingsley), whose son, Nelson (PJ Byrne), is jealous of Gabriel’s prominent place in his father’s life. As the first supercomputer with a beating heart, Gabriel is the most valuable piece of technology the country has ever created and is the U.S.’s secret weapon. Michael Seitzman, René Echevarria, Tripp Vinson, and David Semel (for pilot) are executive producers for ABC Television Studios in association with CBS Television Studios.
Looks like Meghan Ory is a regular on this series. It's likely we won't be seeing Red show up on Once Upon a Time next season.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

The Portal House description is kind of vague, since it says nothing about what's on the other side of the portal or what kind of approach the series would take. Although the title suggests that the house itself would be the main setting, so it wouldn't be a travel-oriented thing like Sliders or Stargate, but more about dealing with stuff that comes through the portal, like Primeval but with a more fixed location. Or like that really lame Australian K-9 series, the unofficial Doctor Who spinoff, where the main characters had a time-space portal-generating device that dangerous aliens kept coming through and it never once occurred to them just to unplug the damn machine when they weren't using it!

And Intelligence bugs me, because it sounds like the guy has the same basic privacy-invading abilities as the Machine on Person of Interest, another CBS series, but since it's a human being doing it, it feels a lot more voyeuristic. Particularly in the hands of a character described as reckless and unpredictable -- the potential for corruption and abuse is enormous.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Intelligence sounds awesome and better than Jake 2.0 or whatever it was that was similar or the computer that wore tennis shoes. Maybe it's not so original but it sounds original enough and timely enough to me to watch. Sounds cool. Is there going to be a gov org. that wants him too?

My favorite current show is still 'Burn Notice'.

That's the plot of House II! (a great underrated movie. Christopher, I think you'd like it)

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Portal House sounds vaguely interesting because, y'know, I like portals and other dimensions. But the name of Steven Spielberg on a TV show is a major red flag.

I was kind of meh from the description, but that preview looked really cool. I think I'd put it up there under Dracula in my interest level.

I bet Josh is just happy to be in a show where he gets to be cleaned up all the time.
