That would infuriate The Locals, as you've already pointed out, they pronounce it Narlins or Nawlins, and have no patience for anyone who pronounces it otherwise
If there are werewolves, it cold be Snarlins.

If there are big scary trees in the swamp, it could be Gnarlins.

LOL, now you're talking

Christopher's Boo Bayou is a great suggestion, too.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

What, people noticed I'm gone? I dumped cable so I'll see the whole season when Netflix gets it on streaming, they're pretty good about AMC shows, and I'm sure I'll have plenty to say then.

I'm trying to ignore spoilery headlines, but I did see something intriguing that makes we wonder


But don't blurt out the answer w/o spoiler code. I'll read it in a few months.

Mary Queen of Scots, Vampire Hunter.

The CW’s project is described as Game Of Thrones meets Marie Antoinette — if Marie Antoinette had a girl posse and was coming of age as a warrior queen.
Okay, the description doesn't say vampires, but it's the CW, so historic accuracy is the last thing I expect.

Could be zombies.

Another tidbit, The Selection (the CW's Hunger Games ripoff) is still not dead yet.

Edit: more on JJ Abrams' future cop series. Definitely sounds like the Beautiful People premise, but more cop-centric.

Right but there's a difference between playing fast and loose with the historical record (The Borgias) and being outright fantasy (Game of Thrones). I suspect since the series is billed as 'fantastical', it presumably sits somewhere between those two programs. This kind of 'historical figure in a scenario where there is probably some still unstated fantasy element' brings to mind the upcoming Da Vinci's Demons, really. I wonder if that's now going to be a thing.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

I'm pretty sure the CW wouldnt bother its pretty little head about any historical accuracies, because their audience isnt going to know the difference so it would be wasted. I wish they'd just go whole hog and have Mary waging a secret war against the vampire hordes, especially their leader, Elizabeth I.

Oh, you didn't know she was a vampire? It's so obvious in retrospect.

Throw in Cleopatra, Catherine the Great and (hey they already went there) Marie Antoinette, and you have the makings of epic entertainment. Of course they will all be 15 years old, played by 25 year olds.

Ming-Na cast in S.H.I.E.L.D.

Ming-Na will play Agent Melinda May. Soulful and slightly damaged by her combat experiences, Melinda is an ace pilot, a weapons expert and a soldier who can — and has — gone beyond the call of duty.
Familiar face for genre fans. Nice to see they're not afraid to cast an actress who is pushing 50.
