TV show about the Precogs from the movie. Long trailer but looks fuckin great.
They will greenlight it then complain its too expensive. When they really should bite a bullet and make one of these scifi series a prestige type series and market the shit out of it until its a true manufactured hit.
I personally think Fox gets a bad rep in that area. The only show I think they canceled too early was Dollhouse. I mean, I would have liked to see Fringe go the distance but Fringe fucked itself.
Almost Human was killed by the out of order showings (whoever decided that one is a jack ass, that may have been Fox executives, not sure) but they also had some extremely sub par acting.
Sleepy Hollow is actually lasting past where it should. That show should have ended with them saving the world when they killed the son. Now it's just kind of dull and blah.
The only other one I think *maybe* they missed the ball on was Alcatraz. I really enjoyed that show and was interested in the plot arc and it got canceled. I understand that I was in the minority on that show though.
This show looks cool and I will probably give it a go. I enjoyed the movie even if Tom Cruise is a fucking nutball.
didn't fox cancel family guy, twice?
Sup, Monica. Don't forget to register at re rerolled
I really need to watch the movie.
I watched the first two episodes of Firefly, the first episode twice. I thought it was a bad SyFy show.
Thanks in advance for all the negs that will get me from the sheeple who think any science fiction show is amazing.
You Firefly fans know this exists and is official canon right?

I mean the comics explore a bit past the movie but this answers the question of the super keycard.
We seem to be getting a lot of police procedurals out of all these nominally genre shows. iZombie, Lucifer, Minority Report, Gotham. I regret that that legal drama set in the future they made a few years ago did not pan out. I find the whole 'world' of Minority Report to be quite fascinating from a futurist point of view and yet its going to boil down to a whodunnit.
Let's not forget who cancelled Futurama and sold off American Dad to TBS.
Pilot for this leaked a few days ago. It was ok, I wasn't really wowed by it or anything. I like the concept, and loved the movie, but this didn't do a lot for me. I don't really care one way or another about any of the characters except Fez from That 70's show who looks perfectly douchey for his character in this. And if they never attempt another virtual reality crime scene re-enactment, it will be too soon. It looked great when Tom Cruise did it with Hollywood magic backing him, but this was pretty terrible.
I mean, it isn't *bad* or anything, it just did nothing to make me think that I'd really look forward to seeing the next episode. At least with shows like Fringe they had some great characters that made you want to keep watching. Even if Walter hadn't been so awesome, Olivia and Peter were decently interesting, and so were many of the weird and whacky cases they got involved with. These guys just aren't, and at least for the first episode, neither was the case. It was even painfully obvious who the real killer was. The part that got the most reaction from me was when they closed the show with Ice Cube's "Today Was a Good Day", which I think I'm not alone in saying that you just have to sing along with. If that's all that I cared about from the show, that's kinda sad. Maybe others will have a different opinion, but I really don't see this being renewed for a second season (or maybe even finishing the first season) unless something drastically changes from the pilot.
Movie was solid, but I generally stay away from the major-major network shows. They seem to hardly, if ever get it right. May cave and watch the pilot though, just to give it a chance.
Everyone understand that this show will be Lost levels of filler/bullshit... right? Some lame ass (is lame ass one or two words?) conspiracy that only goes deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. No end in sight. Garbage network tv, no more.
I think it is a bad rep, it has been said for years. Oh, that looks cool... awe fuck it is on FOX it will just get cancelled.
This show is bad, based on the pilot. The main guy is pretty good, but the girl is unbearable. She's not believable as a cop at all (look at her outfit and shoes when working), and it's almost like they got the discount version of the chick who plays Abby Mills on Sleepy Hollow. Special effects were mediocre, story is stupid (seriously? killer bio-weapon pigeons?), and they kept ramming technology down our throats as if we'd forget it's a sci-fi show.
I hope this gets cancelled.
* Not cause it sucked, but because the cost for the pilot was obviously absurdly high for the number of viewers they were going to get.
Show got a 1.1 rating. I would not expect it to survive long.
For a buddy cop show it wasn't terrible. I'll at least watch a few more weeks to see if it ramps up (unlike Rosewood which was the worst POS I have ever seen on TV)
