So, here's the TV thread! What are you watching? What do wish was still on? Talk about it here.

I'm sort of getting into Preacher. It had a pretty slow start, but I like what I've seen so far.

I never finished season 1. It seemed good, I just lost interest after a while.

Quote :

June 7, 2016 (Los Angeles, CA / Austin, TX) – MIRAMAX(R) and El Rey Network released today the list of directors that will helm the 10 episodes of FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES season three. Additionally, Nicky Whelan (House of Lies, The Wedding Ringer) and Maurice Compte (Breaking Bad, Narcos) have joined the cast of season three. Compte will play Brassa a mysterious Rasputin-like figure who takes on the Gecko brothers. Whelan’s character will be revealed on air.

The list of directors includes several newcomers to the series including Eagle Egilsson, who is known for his acclaimed work as a cinematographer for The Wire and CSI: Miami, for which he was also a producer. Rebecca Rodriguez, sister and frequent collaborator of Robert Rodriguez, will make her television directing debut. Additionally, Executive Producer Diego Gutierrez (Warehouse 13, Without A Trace) will join this esteemed roster after having written episodes for FROM DUSK TILL DAWN: THE SERIES season two.

Directors who will be returning from past seasons include creator and executive producer Robert Rodriguez, Dwight Little (Halloween 4: the Return of Michael Myers), Alejandro Bruges (Juan of the Dead, ABC’S of Death 2), Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project), and Joe Menendez (Ladrón que roba a ladrón).

The specific episodes for each director are as follows:

1. Dwight Little (Halloween 4: the Return of Michael Myers)

2. Robert Rodriguez (creator and executive producer)

3. Alejandro Brugués (Juan of the Dead, ABC’S of Death 2, Personal Belongings)

4. Eagle Egilsson (Nikita, CSI Miami)

5. Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project)

6. Rebecca Rodriguez (Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D)

7. Diego Gutierrez (Warehouse 13, Without A Trace)

8. Eagle Egilsson (Nikita, CSI Miami)

9 & 10. Joe Menendez (Ladrón que roba a ladrón)

Season three continues the Gecko brothers’ saga as they fight their way through the world of culebras, the vampire-snake hybrids that control hidden empires in Texas and Mexico. Once the baddest outlaws in the land, Seth and Richie made a run for the Border two years ago to save their lives – and their fortune. They ran headlong into a bar full of bloodsuckers and bandits, facing off with the vampire goddess Santico. The Geckos joined her cause, and they settled an old score. It won them a place in the culebra world. Now that world is about to explode, and new enemies are gathering – dark forces, hell-bent on destruction and domination. It’s up to the Geckos to stop them – but they can’t do it alone.

Does anybody wish that Home Improvement reruns were still aired? I remember how normal TV used to play that show all the time. I don't get how Friends can be aired constantly yet not Home Improvement.

Duchovny, Anderson talk X-Files Season 11!

Quote :

At the upfronts last month, Fox remarked that this year’s “X-Files” revival snared successful enough ratings for another go-round.In a yak with Deadline today, stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson said that while there’s been no official talks to continue the show, if they could find time, and find a way to make the next season even better, they’d likely be up for another season.

At the upfronts last month there was talk about this continuing. That afterlife you spoke of at the very start; is that still there? Is there still unfinished X-Files business?

Anderson: For me, it was important that I thought of this season as being just these six shows when we were doing it. The long insanity of the schedule [demanded it]. I’m open to the conversation, though they haven’t come to us yet. I have no clue when they’re going to. I’m getting on with the rest of my life and I’m booking other jobs, so if it is indeed something that they would like to continue, then that conversation will need to be had. And I have no idea when that will be able to take place at this juncture.

Is there a sense from you of wanting to do more, though? Has this season increased the desire?

Duchovny: I don’t know… I’m pausing, and I don’t know why I’m pausing. I would say, I guess what we found with this season was that it’s possible to still get it. It doesn’t not work. And then the question becomes, if we were going to move on, how do we make it work even better? That’s a question we’d want to ask. This one was, “Phew, we can do it. I guess it did work.” But now it’s like, now what? How do we make this interesting again for all of us? And it is a joy to play, as difficult as it can be. There are days, I’m sure, where Gillian and I would rather go to work and not have to think about it, but ultimately that’s what keeps us alive; these people, those artists, and the chance to be able to use our brains and think on our feet to do the show in that way.

Anderson: David and I have solidified and intensified our friendship and our working relationship since the series ended, so it really is just going back and choosing to work with somebody, and feeling like we are doing something that only the two of us have the experience of. We’re there for each other, and enjoy that in and of itself. It was something I looked forward to with this series, and something I would potentially look forward to doing again. It’s a nice thing to have in one’s life.

Duchovny: I agree with that, and it’s going to sound really pedestrian, and not at all lofty, but when I think back to the beginnings of the show, and what I thought acting was—what I thought I could do as an actor—the gift this show gave me was having to go to work. Having to work as hard as we did, every day, for 14 hours a day, over 10 months, for five years in a row. That was a gift in that I took myself to school, and taught myself how to be an actor. For both Gillian and me, it was really sink or swim at that point, and to be able to do that with great material, and talented people helping us along… it could have gone in another direction, so I’m thankful, I think, just for the hard work that it was in the beginning, and the appreciation it gave me for what I do. It didn’t kill us, anyway.

Breaking: CW’s “Friday the 13th” is Dead

Quote :

Rarely is it reported that a project is straight up dead, but news out of the ongoing TCA is that the CW “Friday the 13th” project is just that.

Back in April it was reported that CW had already axed the project, while in July it was explained that CW had put the project on hold with plans to revisit next April. In the same report it was explained that the show could potentially move to other networks, including larger streaming services.

So, unless you’re a huge advocate of CW, this could be good news. I would much rather see Jason and the Voorhees family on Amazon, Hulu, Netflix or any other cable channel that’s not CW or MTV.

The Friday the 13th series adaptation was being developed by Steve Mitchell and Craig Van Sickle, creators of the 1996 NBC series “The Pretender” through CBS TV Studios.

The project originated when Emmett/Furla/Oasis Films and Crystal Lake Entertainment sealed a deal to produce a new hourlong dramatic series based upon the characters and settings of the franchise, with Sean S. Cunningham, who helmed the 1980 original, executive producing along with EFO Films principals Randall Emmett & George Furla and Mark Canton, among others.

Bill Basso (Terminator) and Jordu Schell (Avatar) were tapped at the time to script a storyline that re-imagines Jason in multiple time periods. Details on the remake are sketchy but the idea had been to do a contemporary series focusing on the eclectic characters of Crystal Lake who are forced to confront the return of the killer, as new secrets about his wacky family are revealed. The masked Jason is being reimagined with a stronger feel of grounded reality.

The Departed is getting a TV remake!

Im curious to see if they'll take a risk and drop the f bomb 20+ times like in the film.

Last Sunday was the final time that "The McLaughlin Group" was aired. It was one of the earliest episodes from 1983. I'm glad that I saw it since I always liked that show.

Wonder if this'll be a yearly thing. They did it last year when they acquired the rights to air the show.

I've been watching that show Lucifer on Fox, just finished catching up on it all today. I'm starting to watch tv shows more but I prefer shows such as Lucifer where there can be drama but there's also something unusual that wouldn't happen in real life happening.

In case you don't know the difference here is it's a crime drama, but there's a few different side plots going on and the main character is the devil. I'm not even religious but I find it an interesting concept. See I wouldn't watch a normal crime drama with no unusual twists like that.

So anyone know some other shows that have some unusual thing happening? I'm looking into the Walking Dead a bit but catching up on what, 6 seasons will take forever and I'm not sure if I'll like it.

The Walking Dead returns Sunday. Spoilers are already out though, and it's pretty much spot on to what has been speculated for a while. Won't post in case anyone doesn't want to be spoiled, but they are out there.

I have still have to watch the last half of the most recent season. I have read the comic though so I already have a rough Idea of what is going to happen.

The new Exorcist TV show is much better than it has any right to be. Went in expecting a low-quality TV remake of the original, but it's managed to do some incredibly good things, as well as push thing son network TV, being on FOX. Season still had 5 more episodes, so I still worry it could go downhill, but right now, it's honestly amazing.

Sony's at it again...

They're going to remake/reboot All In The Family, Good Times, Maude, and The Jeffersons.

Because showing reruns doesn't make sense for some reason...

Are we this desperate for shared universes that they'll reboot the original shared television universe.

Quote :

Norman Lear, who is the original creator of these shows is planning to bring them back in the form of a mini-series–including about six episodes per season using original scripts.

At least it's the guy who actually created the shows and not some random pleb that's trying to bring them back. Plus if it's a mini series for each you can dedicate it to one main story per season without having to add any filler.

I still don't think it will work. All In The Family is too anti-PC to be made today. I'm surprised the originals are even being shown on the TV Land channel. Good Times and The Jeffersons are more likely to work, but they won't be able to capture most of the magic of the originals.

I think All in the Family still gets shown because Archie did grow as a character and did eventually become a better person in some respects. Today though, the concept of "lovable racist" is just not a thing that can work. It's weird to say there was such a thing at any point in time, but it was a thing.

Wait, what? They took it off for that? You know I get the historical connotations and how those negatively affect people, but what little I ever watched, I don't recall the Duke's driving around and throwing racist insults at people. I feel like people need to learn when there's historical significance, and when people are using the imagery for the wrong reasons.

That said, I think it'd be too costly to digitally edit an old show, and it's probably on DVD, so they probably just said forget it, and hoped people would buy it while they removed it. Still, I don't agree with it being removed like that.

Believe it or not, yes. It was the reason. Remember last year after that deranged high-schooler turned that one church into a shooting gallery how there was a semi-national debate if South Carolina should take down the Confederate flag? Well, the PC police came a knocking and TV Land bowed out.

I've got so much of stuff to watch that I've been hugely downsizing my catalog of upcoming/ongoing series and prioritize to stuff I actually cannot miss. Right now the only series in my must-watch list for 2017 are:

Vikings S4-II (History Channel) - ONGOING
Better Call Saul S3 (AMC)
Star Trek Discovery S1 (CBS)
MLP FIM S7 (Discovery Family)
Game of Thrones S7 (HBO)
Another Period S3 (Comedy Central)
Stranger Things S2 (Netflix)
Dark Matter S3 (Syfy)
Ash vs Evil Dead S3 (Starz)
Vikings S5 (History Channel)
Survivorman SX (Discovery)

And X-Files whenever they can be bothered about it, as lackluster as S10 was.

I'm also fan of the original campy Xena so if they manage to indeed reboot it at some point like it seems (though it's been stalling for some time now) I feel "contractually obligated" to watch it, event though I don't really want to... it's like the Disney Star Wars films or new Alien/Predator reboots, I don't particularly want to see them anymore, but it feels like something you just have to go through for some reason, to get it out of the way or else it feels like you're missing something. IDK it's hard to explain.

The Walking Dead producers apparently are toning down the level of violence due to viewer backlash of the gruesome death scene in the October 23rd premiere

Kate McKinnon is going to be the new Ms. Frizzle in 'The Magic School Bus' reboot.

I always did like that show growing up as a kid.

Call me crazy, but there is a chance Kate McKinnon could be inspired casting for Ms. Frizzle. I'm no fan of Paul Fieg's Ghostbusters, but she did seriously liven up the film and she's the most well remembered actress on that film for a reason.

She and Chris Hemsworth really were the best things about the movie. I really think that role fits her considering how eccentric Ms. Frizzle was in the old animated TV show.

I just finished watching all 8 seasons of Regular Show over this past week. After just finishing the finale, I'm literally in tears. I always liked the show for it's 80's references and being a show that appealed to a lot of people. When season 8 started, and they went into space, I wasn't thrilled by the change, and in fact didn't care for the first half of the season. When the second half kicked into the story though, which it turns out had been hinted at with clues in others seasons, it all turned around, and ended up giving me one of the most well done and emotional finales I've seen in recent television.

It sucks Cartoon Network has turned its back from well thought comedy, as well as action cartoons, in favor of "LOL-Random humor like Teen Titans GO. Hell, they could've struck a decent balance with the Powerpuff Girls reboot, but they decided to TT:GO that one up too. I don't think we'll ever see another show quite like Regular Show, at least not on Cartoon Network. I do look forward to seeing what JG Quintel does next. Regular show was sort of a culmination of everything he did through college, in fact if you decide to check out the series, look for his college shorts first, as they get more than just referenced throughout RS.

I havent watched Cartoon Network since they ended up eliminating all of their decent cartoons. Johnny Bravo..Ed, Edd & Eddy, Space Ghost...those were quality cartoons that they got rid of.

I'd say you need to look into their most recent backlog. Regular Show, Adventure Time, Amazing Workd of Gumball (around season 2 anyway), and Steven Universe are all great shows that feel like the old Cartoon Network. Unfortunately this new era is basically over, Regular Show ended last month, Gumball is ending this year, Adventure Time is ending next year, and I doubt Steven Universe lasts forever. If you turned on CN right now, I wouldn't fault you for thinking it was nothing but garbage, as they like to to show 20 episodes of Teen Titans:GO! in a row every other day for some reason.

Issac Hayes son, Issac III says somebody made the decision for his dad to quit South Park.

Quote wrote:
Hayes III Isaac Hayes did not quit South Park; someone quit South Park for him. What happened was that in January 2006 my dad had a stroke and lost the ability to speak. He really didn't have that much comprehension, and he had to relearn to play the piano and a lot of different things. He was in no position to resign under his own knowledge. At the time, everybody around my father was involved in Scientology — his assistants, the core group of people. So someone quit South Park on Isaac Hayes' behalf. We don't know who.

My father was not that big of a hypocrite to be part of a show that would constantly poke fun at African-American people, Jewish people, gay people — and only quit when it comes to Scientology. He wouldn't be that hypocritical.

That matches to what Matt Stone, one of South Park's co-creators, said just under 10 years ago.

Quote wrote:
"There are reports that Isaac had a stroke and Scientology quit the show for him, and I believe it," says Stone. "It was a brutal, up-close, personal thing with Isaac. If you look at the timeline, something doesn't add up."

Here's a cartoon that talks about 15 'lost' 1990's cartoons.

The odd thing is that I actually remember 12 of them.

What a terrible article. Not because it was written badly, it was informative, but most of those not only aren't forgotten, they are still talked about in animation circles. Since they were quality cartoons, maybe they want future generations to see them, which is fine, but good or bad, I'd have looked for a few more obscure ones. I'm especially baffled about the Real Ghostbusters being on there. Not only was it a huge cartoon, it has been released in a box set, and the volume DVDs are currently available at Toys R Us. At least some of the other one son this list I can't easily find on current media, but that one is far from forgotten.

Off the top of my head, if you want Ghostbusters on the list, go with either Extreme Ghostbusters, the good but short lived RGB sequel, or Spider-Man Unlimited, the weird but short-lived sequel to the 90's Spider-Man cartoon. Star Wars: Droids or Ewoks, both questionable quality, but neither are available in full anywhere and besides a small DVD release of a few episodes years ago, hasn't been heard from since the mid-80s. Or how about The New Adventures of He-Man, which was basically a short-lived sequel to Masters of the Universe which sent He-Man into space.
