‘The Witcher’ Coming To Netflix

The Witcher Is Getting A Netflix Series

The Witcher series is being turned into an English language Netflix drama by CG visual effects company Platige Image S.A.

The Witcher series was spawned by Polish novelist Andrzej Sapkowski and has spawned highly successful (and wonderful) video games.

“I’m thrilled that Netflix will be doing an adaptation of my stories, staying true to the source material and the themes that I have spent over thirty years writing,” said Sapkowski, who will service as a creative consultant, in an official release. “I’m excited about our efforts together, as well as the team assembled to shepherd these characters to life.”

The show will be executive produced by Sean Daniel (The Mummy franchise) and Jason Brown (The Expanse). The Oscar nominated visual effects studio Platige Image S.A. is doing the show, but the official release doesn’t specifically state if it’s CG animated or live-action—or a mix of the two. No stills have been release yet, either.

wow, that’s fucking awesome! well to be honest it could either be really effin awesome, or it could turn out to be kinda crappy and a serious letdown — here’s to hoping it’s a whole buttload of the former, though :)

PS. the witcher 3 is fucking bananas, and if you’re into it, then you know it can easily eat up a couple hundred hours of your life.

The Hotdog App

The hotdog identifying app in Silicon Valley is real — and it’s pure gold

Much of season four of Silicon Valley so far has circled around the boorish charm of entrepreneur Erlich Bachman and his attempt to make something of the young developer Jian-Yang’s octopus recipes app.

Bachman hastily invested in the app, thinking it had to do with Oculus — not octopus.

With venture capitalists confused as to why anyone would want an app with eight octopus recipes in it, Bachman seized on Jian-Yang’s lack of English by explaining its not a seafood app, but rather you can “see food,” pivoting the app to become the “Shazam of food” to secure funding.

Once the SeeFood app is built, it unfortunately can only correctly identify a hot dog.

Introducing “Not Hotdog.” It’s a hotdog-identifying app that uses your phone’s camera tell if a food item is a hotdog… or not. This very app is downloadable from the iOS App Store (but only in the U.S., it seems.)

cracks me up that there’s actually a “not hotdog” app out there… thought Sillicon Valley would start to get pretty old by now, but here we are in the fourth season and i’m still enjoying it…

…then again, i’m easily amused.

Star Trek Spoof: The Orville

The First Trailer for Seth MacFarlane’s Star Trek Spoof The Orville Looks Perfect

When Star Trek Discovery is going to make it to the airwaves is anyone’s guess. Until then, though, we’ve got what looks like the next best thing: Seth MacFarlane’s spoof of the franchise, The Orville.

I’m not usually a fan of MacFarlane’s shows because they’re always so on the nose with their references and humor. But, in the case of The Orville, I think that works perfectly. There are no qualms that this show is exactly what it is, a spoof of Star Trek, and adding in the romantic dynamic is a fun touch. I’m here for this.

oh hell yeah, fuck Star Trek Discovery… whenver that actually comes out, not to mention the BS with CBS airing the first episode for everybody, then the rest of the show behind it’s stupid $5 steaming app… it might be good, it might even be great — but this looks awesome :)

almost surpised it took this long.

American Gods: Believing The Impossible

On American Gods, Belief Is Starting to Make the Impossible Happen

Humans have a hard time coming to grips with death, prompting them to come up with deities and beliefs that revolve around being judged and leaving a legacy. The newest episode of American Gods offers up a poignant spin on the mythological afterlife and teases ominous consequences for those who refuse to pass over to the other side.

Loved ones are spending time with each other in the opening of “Head Full of Snow,” the third episode of American Gods. The camera zooms over rooftops and through several floors of an apartment building in Queens where Hasidic Jews read from prayer books and a black family sits down around a roast turkey. Another dinner is in the process of being made in the home of Mrs. Fadil, a grandmother readying a welcome for her family.

In the middle of tasting and talking to her hairless sphynx cat, a knock on her door interrupts Mrs. Fadil’s preparations. A glumly countenanced black man stands in the hallway. He is not on the wrong floor and he is not a thief, as she’d like to believe. No, Mrs. Fadil is dead—a fact made clear upon seeing her own body on the kitchen floor—and the Egyptian grandmother of eight must come with her visitor, Anubis. At first, the show presents him as the way many would like death to be: insistent yet calm, offering details of the lives of survivors she leaves behind and reassurance that they will find happiness after grief. The death god even chuckles along with her when she learns her first name will become “a bullshit middle name” for her great-granddaughter. Continue…

okay, so we’re now 3 episodes into American Gods and while i still think the show is pretty damn awesome and incredible… at least as far as the cinematography and acting goes, which is top notch in my book… but i’m not sure if it’s really got me hooked, and probably because i’m still not really sure what the hell is going on… and find it a bit annoying that i don’t know or recognize most of these “gods” that everything is being warped around.

maybe i just need to keep with it, and hopefully it’ll start to make more sense to me… and i’m sure if i was more of a geek on all these damn “gods”, i’d be tripping out and enjoying it more.

i dunno.

American Gods

oh man, oh man… i’ve been hearing a lot of good things about this show for awhile now, but really didn’t have much of an idea of what to expect — mostly because i’ve tried to avoid reading too much about it, or watching every single teaser & trailer for it.

holy hell, what a way to start a show! seriously, it’s probably the coolest damn show i’ve seen in awhile… aside from maybe ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘The Expanse’, it’s right up there i think… the shows so effin graphic, too… wow.

they had an encore right afterwards, and i ended up watching it a second time — yeah seriously, that doesn’t happen very often… then after that watched the latest episode of ‘Silicon Valley’, which is so good.

feel like sunday night tv is back.

The Expanse, Season Finale

The Expanse’s EP on the Stellar Second Season and Last Night’s Explosive Finale

So much happened in last night’s season two finale of The Expanse—not all of it clear—we had no choice but to get some answers. We talked to executive producer Naren Shankar about how the second season of the acclaimed scifi series was planned, how it was made, and where it’s going in season three. Oh, and also, why humanity might not be quite as horrible as Naomi’s big speech implies.

If you missed the season finale, “Caliban’s War”—named for the second book in James S.A. Corey’s book series—here’s what you need to know: Avasarala, Cotyar, and Bobbie are pinned down by Mao’s forces. Meanwhile, a Protomolecule hybrid, in classic zombie fashion, has invaded the Roci and is trying to get to the ship’s power source.

While Bobbie manages to escape in an attempt to get her power armor and come back for Avasarala and Cotyar, the Roci crew fails to repel the hybrid, leaving Holden trapped in the hold with it. Prax figures out that they can use a nuke—and its radiation—to lure the hybrid off the ship and into the Roci’s engines to be burned up. Prax hesitates for a bit before throwing the nuke, but he does and they’re saved.

Avasarala decides to give herself up, and just as Mao’s men prepare to execute her, Bobbie arrives in her suit to save them. Meanwhile, back on the Roci, Naomi tells Holden that no matter how technology changes, humans don’t. They took tribalism to the stars and found new ways to hate and fight each other. So instead of destroying the Protomolecule sample like Holden told her to, she gave it to Fred Johnson. At the same time, the Arboghast moves towards the Eros crater, when it is surrounded by the Protomolecule and torn apart.

Ready? Let’s begin.

i totally didn’t realize that last night’s episode of ‘The Expanse’ was the season finale… damnit… now what the hell am i gonna watch, much less look forward to, wednesday nights?!? at least they’ve confirmed a season 3 in 2018.

More Expanse, Please

not only is it the mid-week hump, but it also means that today is Expanse Day — and by that, i mean i’ll be looking forward to watching a new episode of The Expanse later tonight.

there’s not much that i actually watch on a weekly basis, but this show is one of the few of ’em… this clip was from a couple episodes back, but thought it really was one of the best space battles i’ve seen in a regular tv show.

good stuff, mang.

TV WTF?

The Expanse, Cancelled? Noooooo!!!!!!!!

Only You Can Stop ‘The Expanse’ From Becoming the Next Canceled Sci-Fi Classic

SYFY’S EPIC SPACE show The Expanse is a smash hit among science fiction fans, drawing praise from websites like io9 and Ars Technica and from celebrities like Adam Savage. Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy host David Barr Kirtley also loves the show.

“This is my favorite show on TV,” Kirtley says in Episode 248 of the Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy podcast. “This is the most serious science fiction TV show—in terms of what hardcore science fiction fans would want in a TV show—that I’ve seen in a long time, possibly ever.”

But while the show is widely praised in many corners, it has yet to attract a wider audience. John J. Joex, who tracks the ratings of various shows over at Cancelled Sci Fi, says that The Expanse looks like a show headed for cancellation.

“The ratings started out decent and then really dropped off,” he says. “And I know this is an expensive series to produce, so I was really getting kind of nervous about it.”

Syfy recently renewed The Expanse for a third season, but a fourth season seems unlikely if the ratings don’t improve. Science fiction editor John Joseph Adams watches every episode of The Expanse, and he’s annoyed that he isn’t being counted by the Nielsen ratings.

“It’s pretty frustrating to hear that all of the viewing that I’ve done, none of that counts for anything as far as the networks are concerned,” he says.

holy shit, i really really hope they’re not actually thinking about cancelling the show… didn’t even know the ratings were “low”, which surprises the hell outta me because it’s soooooooo fucking good! it’s one of the few tv shows that i actually watch and really dig.

fuck man.

‘Attack on Titan’ Season 2 New Trailer

‘Attack on Titan’ Season 2 New Trailer: Humankind Faces Off Against Flesh-Eating Beasts

Funimation has released another trailer for Season 2 of the manga series, ‘Attack on Titan,’ in which giant beasts attack the city of Shinganshina and threaten to wipe out humankind. Here’s the official description of the series from IMDb.

After his hometown is destroyed and his mother is killed, young Eren Jaegar vows to cleanse the earth of the giant humanoid Titans that have brought humanity to the brink of extinction.

Protecting what’s left of humanity are three walls — Wall Maria, Wall Rose and Wall Sheena — and after breaking through the first wall in season one, it appears that the second wall will also be breached in season two.

speaking of trailers, i was super stoked to see the first one for season two of ‘Attack on Titan’, which i’ve been eagerly awaiting for what feels like forever… loved the first season and thought it was pretty kickass, so can’t wait for this one to finally get here.

i usually like to chill and binge watch my anime, but this one might be a weekly tune-in show for me… damn you jayden for getting me hooked on some of these anime shows!

Iron Fist Ain’t So Bad

i completely forgot that ‘iron fist’ was released on netflix this weekend, until jayden mentioned it yesterday and i was like “oh shit, you’re right!” — so i fired it up and watched the first couple episodes, and i gotta say… i didn’t think it was that bad at all.

of course, i only watched the first 2 episodes before heading off to bed, but still… if it was really that bad, i’m sure i wouldn’t have wanted to keep watching it… sure was tempted to, but really didn’t feel like pulling a binge watching all-nighter going into monday morning… i’m not exactly 20 anymore, so fuck that… anywho, from what i’ve seen so far i thought it was actually pretty damn good… not sure i’d say better than dare devil, but still good.

anywho, just an initial impression…

‘Iron Fist’ Blames Trump

Finn Jones Blames Donald Trump for Bad ‘Iron Fist’ Reviews

“Iron Fist” star Finn Jones thinks part of the reason the latest Netflix Marvel show is getting panned is because of the American political climate — in particular, Donald Trump.

Speaking to Radio Times, Jones said part of the problem is that his “Iron Fist” character, Danny Rand, is a white billionaire. And as he sees it, the one of those currently holding the US presidency is making critics less receptive to Danny’s story.

“I think the world has changed a lot since we were filming that television show,” he said in the interview. “I’m playing a white American billionaire superhero, at a time when the white American billionaire archetype is public enemy number one, especially in the US.

“We filmed the show way before Trump’s election, and I think it’s very interesting to see how that perception, now that Trump’s in power, how it makes it very difficult to root for someone coming from white privilege, when that archetype is public enemy number one.”

so wait a second, he’s actually blaming all the negative reviews from practically everybody that’s watched the first 6 episodes on Trump?!? …seriously??

gimme a break, how about making a good show?

most of the people that’ve watched it loved Dare Devil and Luke Cage, which is telling you something… and it certainly doesn’t have anything to do with Trump.

i have my own issues with Trump, but this just seems like a lame excuse for making a crappy show.

First ‘Iron Fist’ Review, And It’s Pretty Bad

The Iron Fist TV Series Is Marvel and Netflix’s First Big Failure

There’s a critical concept with the Marvel Netflix shows often referred to as “the wall”—the moment where, about two-thirds of the way through their season, they slam the brakes on the pacing and stakes and preamble for a bit, mostly before pulling it together in the finale. Iron Fist starts by hitting that wall, and has enough problems that I don’t think it’ll ever get past it.

Netflix recently made the first six episodes of Iron Fist—the final entry in its quartet of shows before the long-awaited Defenders crossover this summer—available to press, and as a whole, they’re kind of a mess—far inferior to its earlier predecessors Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage. They balance a dull lead character in Finn Jones’ Danny Rand with shockingly bland fight scenes, far more boardroom business action than should ever be in a comic book show, and a mild dash of poorly-handled representation of Asian cultures. Continue…

well shit, this really sounds like a crap show… my favorite of the bunch is still Dare Devil by far, and i just figured that was the bar to hit (or exceed) going forward… but man, really sounds like they fucked it all up with this new ‘Iron Fist’ show that’s coming out next week.

i’ll probably still check it out, or at the very least give it the “3 episode” run, but if it’s this bad after the first three episodes, then i’ll drop it.

Nice ‘Iron Fist’ Intro

Everything You Need to Know About Marvel’s Iron Fist Before His Netflix TV Debut

In less than a month, martial arts superhero Danny Rand is heading to Netflix for his own TV show—and he’s being heralded as “the fourth Defender” as much as he is by his actual hero name, the immortal Iron Fist. He’s had a long history in Marvel Comics, both on his own and as a partner in crime-fighting. So here’s what you need to know about Iron Fist before his show premieres on March 17. Continue…

to be honest, i really don’t know much about Iron Fist and never really collected or read his comics as a kid growing up… so i found this post about him to be pretty interesting — enough so that i read the whole thing, and continued down through the comments as well.

sounds pretty cool and looking forward to checking out the show in a few weeks when it comes out on netflix… my favorite so far has been Daredevil, especially the first season… think it’d be pretty sick to see both of them team up.

The Expanse, A Producer’s Recap

The Expanse’s Executive Producer Tells Us Everything That Made Last Night’s Big Moment Work

there’s always half a dozen recap posts and articles the next day after a show airs, which is usually always fun to read through… i tend to hit them pretty regularly on shows i really dig, like Game of Thrones… but there’s some good geeky stuff here from the producer of the show, with a few subtle hints at things to come.

i went back and re-watched the latest episode last night, and g’damn it was great! the best episode so far, i think. heh.

‘Firefly’ Reboot?!

Fox is thinking real hard about a “Firefly” reboot, and this is the only thing that matters right now

With Fox rebooting some old favorites like Prison Break, 24, and The X-Files in the past few years could we see a Firefly reboot? Apparently, it’s not completely off the table. The cult show created by Joss Whedon ran for one season (and a movie) in 2002 but has an intense fanbase.

At the TCA Winter panels back in January, Fox Broadcasting President of Entertainment David Madden discussed the recent reboots of several FOX shows and threw out the idea that a reboot of Firefly was under consideration. But the show would only return if Joss Whedon was involved. Which honestly, we’re very happy to hear.

Fans have been trying to get Firefly back on the air ever since it went off the air. That passionate fanbase is what allowed for the 2005 film follow-up film Serenity. But even that wasn’t enough for fans. It’s been more than a decade but they’re still interested.

oh hell yeahhhhh! of course i’d love to see a proper Firefly reboot… who wouldn’t?! though i totally agree that it’ll only be worth a damn if they can somehow convince Joss Whedon to come back — otherwise, don’t even bother.

all that being said, you can’t help but wonder or say to yourself, “those dipshits should’ve never cancelled the show in the first place.”

uh huh.
