They produced Lilyhammer, and it's been a big honking flop.
Netflix did not actually produce Lilyhammer; they merely have the U.S. and Canadian distribution rights. I'm also curious as to where you're seeing this "big honking flop" characterization come from, since the only information I can find relates to its big success on Norwegian TV (oh, and a Netflix exec noting that ratings won't work the same for Netflix as they would for a traditional tv network).

That's what I was thinking. When Terra Nova is the most interesting item on the list, something's wrong.

Re: Netflix may pick up Terra Nova

So, if Netflix were to pick the show up, would it be exclusive to Netflix, or would it eventaully get a DVD release?

Could be worse. They could be picking up Stargate Universe.

Oh!

That would definitely be worse. Although a new Stargate show may be good.

A sequel to the Stargate cartoon?

I've never seen it, but I'm sort of leaning toward "no."

Similar to Star Trek in this vein of distribution would be DC and Marvel properties. They are moving into online digital versions of their actual comics. It would be a natural extension of that with live action series or animation.
Well there's an idea. Who says Netflix needs to just imitate any type of TV business, broadcast or cable? Why couldn't they start distributing online comics? Why not do both traditional (still image) comics and some hybrid between still images and animation? Maybe there's a new form of comics to be invented.
This medium already exists. For the past 5 years or so that I've seen, there have been small motion comic spin-offs of movies and video games. The prequel series to Dead Space you can get on XBOX Live is pretty awesome, with a decent cast of voice actors and a well done, creepy hardcopy comic base for the visuals. I wish they had made another one for the sequel, but I guess the comics and XBOX Live game covered that.

Someone should definitely go all out with a full series of such things, though. It has to be cheaper than a normal animation project. You can tell any crazy story you want in print and then digitize it without worrying about Bay-level production budgets breaking your piggy bank.

As for Terra Nova, Netflix should just let it die and focus on coming up with some of their own original IPs.

Nothing that bad, just the cartoon world's answer to Ed Wood and Uwe Boll.

Netflix pulled this with The Event and something else recently. I'll believe it when I see it.

Pulled what? It's possibly been offered to them, and they are possibly considering it. No promises have been made

Exactly. I doubt this deal will go through as I can't see Terra Nova bringing in many new people. It wasn't a show that came across as having a huge fanbase like Arrested Development which Netflix did pick up.

Well, that's a shame. But at least it leaves them free to save FreakyLinks.
