    Isn't there a musical fantasy coming up this season? Anything is possible. :rommie:

    I wonder how long before MTV rebrands so that they're no longer associated with music. They could call themselves "Um...TV?"

    They already have, it's just "MTV" now, they've officially dropped "Music Television" from it. It's just us old farts that still think of that.

    Wherever you go, there you are.
    TNT has renewed Falling Skies for a fifth (and final) season and The Last Ship for a second season. TNT has ordered 13 episodes for the second season of The Last Ship, up from the first season's 10-episode order.

    On a similar note, BIO, (re:The Biography channel) has rebranded itself as FYI.

    I like that show, but this is for the best. It won't drag on too long and we will hopefully get a nice conclusion.

    Wow and wow. :(

    I like Ashmore, so I'm glad to see him getting a new gig.

    A Space Opera and a Westworld series. Both sound promising. :bolian:

    I like AI stuff, so Westworld sounds pretty interesting.
    I've been wanting some new space opera, so I'm also looking forward to Killjoys.

    They might well be radically changing it. Recall the example of FlashForward. The main character from the book was made a supporting character in the show, as well as being made younger, more attractive, and English rather than Canadian; and most of the rest of the cast was entirely original to the show, with the focus shifted to law-enforcement protagonists. And they changed the interval of the flashforward from decades into the future to just long enough to fit in a single TV season.

    For the first book's story, he could qualify as co-lead. I think as many pages are devoted to him as are to Holden. But you're right, for Jane to stick around on the show, some MAJOR alterations will be in order.

    Wow, that Westworld pilot sure is assembling a pretty impressive cast! Is this going to be HBO's first true sci-fi show? (If you don't count The Leftovers)
