What is ‘The Orville: Old Wounds’?

Standard

It’s been over ten years since we last had Star Trek on our screens beyond reruns and fan films of which there has been plenty of both. But the time is finally near with a Star Trek show that doesn’t look like Star Trek and a Seth MacFarlane “comedy” that does. This is………………….

What is ‘The Robinsons: Lost in Space’?

Standard

After we dredged up the corpse of Star Trek for a thorough milking and before we get around to dragging Battlestar Galactica back out for another beating we have ‘Lost in Space’ from Netflix the home of family friendly fun. This isn’t the first we’ve launched the Robinsons back into orbit however. Though their last outing didn’t go as well because it wasn’t a much loved gritty syfy series but instead……………………………………

Standard

As Star Trek gears up for it’s eventual return to prime time let’s take this chance to go back and examine the lost series. The hidden series. The fan series; that now brakes pretty much every rule laid down by CBS or Paramount and a fair few more besides. Coming you from the long distant past of the year 2000 this is……………………………

What is ‘Wonder Woman’ (2011 Pilot)?

Standard

When Zack Snyder saw DC’s two biggest names going at it for no desernable reason, leaving a bloody trail of bodies in each other wakes and screaming the name Martha randomly, even he knew he needed something to patch the movie together and that was a job for Wonder Woman. Soon to be the first major blockbuster female led superhero movie, not counting all the other ones we’ve had; where she dates Captain Kirk and visits World War 1. Will it be any good? I don’t know I haven’t seen it, yet. But going off all the other female led superhero movies, probably not.

What is ‘Heat Vision and Jack’?

Standard

We’ve had pilots from Ron Weasley, Doctor Who and ever Shaggy but this could be hard to ever top for most star power in an unpicked up t.v pilot. In the distant year of 1999 we have Jack Black then and up and coming comedian, relativly unknown outside of the comedy circtui butonly a year away till “High Fidelity”, Owen Wilson a bit part actor from a number of projects but only a year away from “Shanghai Noon”, Ben Stiller one time t.v actor, one time Emmy winner and only a year away from “Meet the Parents” and Dan Harmon a guy known for singing about masturbation  and yet only ten years away from Community, I know that seems like a relatively long amount of time but the show’s just that good and no I haven’t seen Rick and Morty yet. All of them got together for a television pilot called ………………………….

What is ‘Power Pack’ (1991 Pilot)?

Standard

Today comic books are no longer a children focused media, with gritty adult rated t.v shows, teen aged blockbusters and sexual harassment in every office. They are big buisness and yet “won’t someone please think of the children“, because all their getting is a bunch of cartoon series, where if they ever get good get cancelled oh and Big Hero 6. To find something aimed at kids comics we’re going to have to go all the way back to 1991 with t.v’s
