@Jesse_O Nice! I just started Creepshow (on demand). The first thing I noticed was the logo, GN raher than EC on the comics.

After reading this, it's still a hard pass for me. The description of the new character sounds ridiculous. Also sounds like they should change the name of the network.

Batwoman to Replace Kate Kane with New Character


When Batwoman returns in 2021, there will be a new character as well as a new face under the cowl. The show isn’t going to recast the character of Kate Kane, which Ruby Rose recently excited after the end of the first season. Instead, The CW will introduce a new character named Ryan Wilder to take the role of Batwoman.

Based on the casting call that’s making the rounds, Ryan is a woman in her mid to late 20s and is the opposite of Kate. The casting call encourages LGBTQ performers and did not specify ethnicity. “She’s likable, messy, a little goofy, and untamed,” the document reads. “With no one in her life to keep her on track, Ryan spent years as a drug-runner, dodging the GCPD and masking her pain with bad habits. Today, reformed and sober, Ryan lives in van with her plant. A girl who would steal milk from an alley cat and could also kill you with her bare hands, Ryan is the most dangerous type of fighter: highly skilled and wildly disciplined. An out lesbian. Athletic. Raw. Passionate. Fallible. And very much not your stereotypical All-American hero.”

Introducing a new character as the lead will bring up a lot of questions regarding the rest of the characters. What will this mean for Alice, Kate’s twin and season one villain who became obsessed with seeking revenge against her sister? Presumably, Luke will still be involved in helping Batwoman, but what about Mary, Kate’s stepsister who joined the team mostly for the familial reason. Before those and other questions can be addressed, the show will have to set up Kate’s departure and the fall out with the supporting cast.

Batwoman is expected to return in January 2021, though that announcement was made before Ruby Rose’s exit news, so it could be delayed to accommodate the changes.

I'm watching the Inhumans on Disney+ and while it's not great..it has its moments. I hope Marvel tries again for the big screen.

I'm surprised that I'm saying this, but I really like Stargirl! It's only 4 episodes in and The CW hasn't screwed it up... yet. Time will tell. If they start down that political road I'll 86 it as I have with most of their other shows.

On June 8th's episode, we got to see JSA's Wildcat return. It's great to see them tapping into the golden age characters of the Justice Society and the Injustice Society! Hourman and Dr. Mid-Nite are coming up soon

The Witcher Season 2 Showrunner Promises New Witchers and Fewer Timelines
clickable text



The first season of The Witcher was a huge success for Netflix and gave good reason to cheer among fans of both the best-selling novels and the games on which the show was based. Now the series is gearing up for a second season. Showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich spoke to TheWrap in a new interview regarding what the upcoming season will add to the show's plot.

"Probably my favorite additions for Season 2 are the new witchers. Really, in Season 1, we got to know Geralt and he's our prime example of a witcher. And then there is one other witcher, Remus, who we meet in Episode 103, who quickly dies (laughs). So it was, for us really, about getting Geralt back to his roots and sort of learning where he came from and what his story is and what his sense of family is."

The Witcher follows the exploits of Geralt of Rivia, a magically-enhanced monster hunter, played by the impossibly buff Henry Cavill. But Geralt is not the only witcher in the books or the games, and fans will be thrilled to hear season 2 will see the introduction of other fan-favorite characters belonging to Geralt's brotherhood.

One aspect of season 1 that Netflix audiences had a problem with was the multi-timeline approach to unveiling the plot. This made it hard to keep track of the many separate incidents that were taking place in separate time periods until Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri finally met. Now, the show will offer a much more streamlined plot for season 2.

"Obviously, it was one of the most controversial parts of Season 1 and I didn't expect it to be as controversial as it was. But it's something I still stand behind, in terms of storytelling. The goal was to get to know each of these characters individually, and the only want to do that was to separate their timelines."
"What's great though is they have intersected now. So what we'll see in Season 2 is that all of our characters are existing on the same timeline. What that allows us to do story wise though is to play with time in slightly different ways. We get to do flashbacks, we get to do flash-forwards, we get to actually integrate time in a completely different way that we weren't able to do in Season 1. Because, if you can imagine, if we were in three different timelines (in Season 1) and then flashed forward or flashed back, we would have been in four or five or six timelines - even I know that's too much. So I think it will be a lot easier for the audience to follow and understand, especially a new audience coming in. But there are still going to be some fun challenges with time."


Production on the second season of The Witcher was underway when the global lockdown hit, and shooting had to stall. Now the cast and crew are waiting for the all-clear signal from the studio so they can get back to work charting the next chapter of Geralt's adventures on screen. This news first generated over at The Wrap.

I remember listening to the Star Wars radio drama back in the early 80's, Mark Hamill did the voice of Luke Skywalker and the sound effects were just amazing.

@OGJackster - I just watched the first 4 episodes. So far I am liking it quite a bit.

Update: Finished it. Since I never read the comics this is based on, I can't judge the series by them. But I definitely enjoyed it, and got a Jennifer Lawrence-type vibe from the lead actress. Give it a shot!

If you care to see real life monsters watch the documentary "Athlete A" on Netflix about the USA Gymnastics scandal. Basically these very young and talented girls were delivered by their parents into the hands of an organization filled with monsters. In one heart-breaking moment the girls express that the Pedophile Doctor was the only person in the organization who was nice and seemed to care about them.

The Batman TV Spinoff Gotham PD by Matt Reeves Ordered For HBO Max

The Batman director Matt Reeves is developing a TV spinoff about the Gotham PD for his upcoming Batman reboot for HBO Max. The series will be overseen by Reeves and Terrence Winter (Boardwalk Empire), and "will be set in the world Reeves is creating for the feature film “The Batman,” with the intent being to launch a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. It is said to build on the film’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City." It is the first project in an overall deal Reeves has with Warner Bros. TV, and marks a bold (but familiar) new expansion of the Batman franchise.


Matt Reeves has issued the following statement about the project (via Warner Bros.):

“This is an amazing opportunity, not only to expand the vision of the world I am creating in the film, but to explore it in the kind of depth and detail that only a longform format can afford — and getting to work with the incredibly talented Terence Winter, who has written so insightfully and powerfully about worlds of crime and corruption, is an absolute dream."

At first glance, this new The Batman TV spinoff sounds like it could be a rehash of Fox's Gotham - but the details of this production spell out something decidedly different. Terrence Winter's work on Boardwalk Empire and The Wolf of Wall Street suggests Reeves and WB TV are going with a much darker, grittier, and hard-boiled tone for this version of the Gotham Police Department, and the city they must patrol. It's a bold choice for WB TV right now when the entire world is in a heated debate about the state of policing, and the systemic flaws and/or corruption that may lie therein. The Batman spinoff show's tone also informs us more about the kind of world Matt Reeves is creating in The Batman, which is now even more intriguing with its hard-boiled Noir inspirations.

You can get the full details on The Batman TV Spinoff from the Warner Bros. Press Release below:

"HBO Max announced today that it has given a series commitment to an original DC drama set in the Gotham City police department from The Batman filmmaker Matt Reeves, Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter, The Batman producer Dylan Clark, and Warner Bros. Television. The groundbreaking television series to be written by Winter is set in the world Reeves is creating for The Batman feature film and will build upon the motion picture’s examination of the anatomy of corruption in Gotham City, ultimately launching a new Batman universe across multiple platforms. The series provides an unprecedented opportunity to extend the world established in the movie and further explore the myriad of compelling and complex characters of Gotham. This marks the first television project for Reeves under his recently announced overall deal with the Warner Bros. Television Group.

'We are so fortunate to have such great partners in Matt, Dylan, and Terry and unprecedented access to a wealth of IP from our partners at Warner Bros. and DC,' said Sarah Aubrey, head of original content, HBO Max.

'Our collaboration with Warner Bros. and DC allows us to elaborate and grow fan connections across these powerful brands for years to come. This is Batman as most audiences have never seen before and we know fans will want to spend more time in this new world inspired by the film,' added Kevin Reilly, chief content officer, HBO Max, president TNT, TBS, and TruTV.

Reeves’ 6th & Idaho production company will produce the series in association with Warner Bros. Television. Reeves and Emmy® winner/Oscar® nominee Winter (The Sopranos, The Wolf of Wall Street) will executive produce with Clark (Bird Box, Rise, Dawn, and War for Planet of the Apes). The drama, which is based on characters created for DC by Bob Kane with Bill Finger, will also be executive produced by 6th & Idaho’s Daniel Pipski (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) and Adam Kassan (Tales from the Loop); Rafi Crohn (Tales from the Loop) will co-executive produce. Warner Bros. International Television Distribution will distribute the series globally.

Reeves is currently at the helm of Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Batman, which will be released in October 2021. He previously co-wrote and directed War for the Planet of the Apes, directed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, wrote and directed Let Me In, and directed Cloverfield, among other films. Recent 6th & Idaho television series include Amazon Prime Video’s Tales from the Loop, starring Rebecca Hall and Jonathan Pryce; the upcoming Netflix drama Away, starring Hilary Swank; and FOX’s The Passage. Reeves previously co-created (with J.J. Abrams) and executive produced the hit series Felicity, directing the pilot and several additional episodes.
Winter was nominated for 12 Emmy® Awards and won four during his tenure on the landmark HBO drama series The Sopranos, twice for Outstanding Drama Series and twice for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series. He created the HBO drama Boardwalk Empire, which ran for five seasons and earned Winter two additional Outstanding Drama Series Emmy® nominations. He was nominated for an adapted screenplay Academy Award® for writing the Best Picture–nominated film The Wolf of Wall Street, directed by Martin Scorsese, who had previously helmed the Boardwalk Empire pilot. He and Scorsese subsequently co-created (with Mick Jagger and Rich Cohen) the HBO drama Vinyl."

The Batman hits theaters on October 1, 2021.

If not for a character or two, I actually liked this show. Too bad it's ending.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to End in Late 2020



Put away the spell books, Netflix has canceled Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. The final eight episodes of the Kiernan Shipka-led show, which will serve as part four of the series, will premiere later this year.

“Working on Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has been an incredible honor from day one,” showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa said in a statement. “The cast, beginning with Kiernan as everyone’s favorite teen witch, has been an absolute joy. I am beyond thankful to the crew, writers, editors, assistants, and everyone for pouring so much love into this dark dream of a show. I’m also grateful to our partners at Netflix, Warner Bros., Berlanti Television and Archie Comics for letting us tell the story we wanted to tell, the way we wanted to tell it. We can’t wait for everyone to see part four.”

Originally in development for The CW, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina moved to Netflix and was given a 20-episode order. Packaged as parts instead of seasons, it started streaming in October 2018 with the first 11 episodes, followed by the 9-episode second part in April 2019, and an 8-episode third part in January 2020.

Netflix has stated that in the final eight episodes of part four “The Eldritch Terrors will descend upon Greendale. The coven must fight each terrifying threat one-by-one (The Weird, The Returned, The Darkness to name a few), all leading up to…The Void, which is the End of All Things. As the witches wage war, with the help of The Fright Club, Nick begins to slowly earn his way back into Sabrina’s heart, but will it be too late?”

The ensemble cast also includes Miranda Otto, Lucy Davis, Chance Perdomo, Ross Lynch, Gavin Leatherwood, Jaz Sinclair, Lachlan Watson, Michelle Gomez, Richard Coyle, Tati Gabrielle, Adeline Rudolph, and Abigail Cowen.

Not TV exactly but I watched The Old Guard on Netflix last night. They changed things from the series (at least the first arc; haven't read the second arc) but it was good. Good action scenes.
