So does mean Kaiju are going to be a regular thing in the US now?
We can only hope!
Sounds like the series will be about carving up the corpse and burying the pieces.
Apparently in the new BBC series Atlantis, Jason is actually from out time, but he gets sent back to Atlantis.
This is actually does make me a little more curious about it.
There's also a new trailer.
Oh, dear. That's not particularly encouraging. The clip was rather corny, too.
When the cast was announced I thought it was cool to see Mark Addy cast as Hercules given what the character usually looks like and the fact that the creator was the creator of Misfits... but the problem may be that the other two "co-creators" are the creative team behind Merlin and much of the Merlin staff has moved onto this show.
I know there's Merlin fans on this board, but I just could never get into the style or quality of Merlin/Robin Hood/Sinbad/etc...
"the creator of Misfits" was part of the Merlin staff also.
Merlin was pretty good, when I got to see it. Sinbad was an unfortunate misfire.
Merlin started OK, but I really liked it a lot by the end. Hopefully this will be later Merlin quality, rather then earlier.
I enjoyed Sinbad. It wasn't the greatest thing ever, but it was good. I really wish it had gone longer than just one season. If this is equal in quality to either that or Merlin, I'll be very happy.
Do we know yet if this has been picked up for the US?
I thought the first seven episodes were quite good, but the rest were a mess.
I think I read that Atlantis is a BBC America co-production, so it'll show there.
The show was pretty good for quite some time, but near the end it got so bad that I actually stopped watching it even though I was only a few episodes away from the finale. It simply became unbearable (and that's coming from someone who watched ENT in its entirety).
^I wouldn't say the final season of Merlin got that bad, but I was disappointed in the direction it went. I mean, the dominant thread throughout the whole series was about striving for a future where magic-users would no longer be persecuted in Camelot, and yet they abandoned that thread and left it unresolved.
CW Buys Mars Drama From ‘Mentalist’ Duo
I'm torn... another show set off the Earth is good, but I think Defiance has soured me on sci-fi Westerns.
"This Red Planet ain't big enough for the both of us..."
BBCA has already been advertising the show.
Wait, you can't have gunsmoke on Mars-there's no atmosphere worth noting!
Well, you could, since bullets contain their own oxidizers and could fire without air. The smoke would just expand less turbulently.
I guess I'll have to wait for it to pop up on Netflix streaming, or for the Blu-Ray/DVD release then. I don't get BBC America.
