Re: Orci Meets with CBS About New Series

Sounds like a meeting putting out preliminary feelers. I guess the interesting part of the article to me was the need for us to root for Agents of SHIELD to be successful. I haven't seen the show but I wonder just how true that comment was. Is that show really going to be that much of a barometer? To me it's apples and oranges but I'm no network executive.

Re: Orci Meets with CBS About New Series

It's not an exact comparison, because of the nature of the CBS/Paramount paradigm, but I think it's a good point. S.H.I.E.L.D. will give a general idea of how successful a prime time tie in show to a major blockbuster can be on basically name recognition alone.

That's fair. I guess we can only hope that Agents gets decent ratings.

Thanks. I wonder why that one is in that particular forum.

Of course CBS is agents of shield, they're the most conservative network out there, they want to see if by budget sci fi tied to a movie franchise can work on tv and then they'll copy it. I always assumed that the love action star wars show would convince CBS to return star trek to TV, but with that show not happening right now, it makes sense that they'd watch the next best thing which in this case is shield.

I'll believe it when I see it. Ideas get tossed around all the time, but becoming reality is a completely separate thing.

Is this a new HBO show I haven't heard about?

I'd be all for a new Trek Series. Agents of Shield (and Arrow) seem quite popular, so, the ratings should hold

Re: Orci Meets with CBS About New Series

The last thing I want is a new Trek series tied to the movie series. No "spinoffs," please. I'd like a Trek series to stand on its own, a totally unapologetic TV reboot, with no time travel and/or alternate universes to justify it. Just Kirk and Spock on the Enterprise for weekly adventures.

I have no issue recasting the roles for a TV series.

Nor do I. But I think I'd prefer animation over yet another live action series.

Re: Orci Meets with CBS About New Series

I would not settle for an animated series. Why should I? CBS will not risk an animated series about Star Trek with adult focus so automatically means that it will be an animated series for kids and I will be extremely annoyed by a huge number of creative choices that will be kids centric … I’m sorry but an animated series cannot live without focusing on kids, and I am a grown up and I don’t care to see kids show …

Spongebob Squarepants is a "kids" show but the storytelling is actually more mature than most live-action TV shows.
