Will you need an XBox to be able to watch the Halo show? Or is there an app?
I think the idea is it will premiere on Xbox and you'll need an Xbox Live subscription to view it, though it may be available on their Xbox Video app to buy/rent.

I haven't read the book, but any new space sci-fi series will get my attention.

So I guess that means chances are his Arrow storyline will be only one season then.

Things could change of course, but the pilot script for Constantine describes him as "a working class Londoner with debonair looks and spiky blond hair."

More like Sting (the musician/actor), who was the model for John Constantine's looks when he was created in 1985.

Redshirts was a fun read, not sure it deserved it's Hugo win, but that's neither here nor there. This could be a fantastic limited series IF it doesn't take itself too seriously. The whole thing is very tongue-in-cheek and one big inside joke for trekkies. I hope they build the show the same way and kind of embrace the inherent hokiness of the entire concept.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

What if Robin Hood and his traditional nemesis, the Sheriff of Nottingham, were the same person? - BBC America Developing Robin Hood Drama Series ‘Nottingham’ From ‘Dracula’ Creator

Nottingham centers on the Sheriff of Nottingham whose wife is killed by King John’s men. When nobody is brought to justice, the Sheriff launches a one-man war against the Crown. By day, he remains the reviled Sheriff, loyal servant of the King, but by night he puts on a hood and, using the intelligence he gains from his office, attacks the King where it hurts the most – his coffers. As Robin Hood, he systematically raids the King’s men, his noble loyalists and political allies, giving the spoils to the starving peasantry and starting a rebellion that will change England forever.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

^^^
At one stage in the script development for Ridley Scott's Robin Hood (which was initially going to be titled Nottingham) they had a draft where Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham were the same person, too. At one point it was said to be more of a Fight Club approach, though, where the Sheriff was chasing himself without realizing it. There was also a version where Robin Hood sees the Sheriff slain in battle and takes his place to impersonate him.

The spec script that first got the project rolling had the Sheriff as the hero and Robin Hood as an ambiguous character who's a murder suspect with a storyline that plays like a kind of period police procedural.

This.

I can't take any more crappy Earth based genre shows.

I'd settle for a crappy space show though...

Ohh, that's a clever twist.

I really enjoyed Redshirts as well. I think how it fares could possibly mean Star Trek on TV again in the near future.
