    Pilot episodes of BLINDSPOT, MINORITY REPORT and LUCIFER have been leaked online.

    Finished watching all three and wasn't blown away any of them but they were still decently entertaining.


    BLINDSPOT - As I said before, this feels exactly MEMENTO meets THE BLACKLIST. I'm intrigued by the mystery and look forward to seeing Jaimie Alexander rediscover her skills and kick butt each week.


    MINORITY REPORT - Feels like PERSON OF INTEREST but set in the future. I like the lead character Dash and his social awkwardness leads to some amusing scenarios. Meagan Goode is hot but still unsure if she's the right fit for this series. Wilmer Valderrama's credit-stealing character is annoying but might be an asset to the show. Even without precogs, it's kinda hard to get away with a crime in their future setting with the omniscient surveillance system and other state-of-the-art techs in place. Hope we don't get a lot of PIS reasons why the perps can elude capture.


    LUCIFER - The premise of Lucifer helping solve crimes is laughable but once you accept the story that Lucifer is not the traditional evil devil but just a devilishly naughty entity, then it makes it easier to enjoy the show. Out of the three leaked shows, I think I enjoyed this more because of the charming performance by Tom Ellis and his great chemistry with the female lead.

    FRIDAY THE 13TH TV Series in Development at The CW

    [​IMG]

    The CW is heading to Crystal Lake. The network topper Mark Pedowitz today confirmed that the CW is developing Friday The 13th, a drama series based on the long-running feature franchise. The series adaptation will be written by Steve Mitchell & Craig Van Sickle, creators of the 1996 NBC series The Pretender through CBS TV Studios.

    The Friday The 13th series project originated last year 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. Cunningham recently hinted of interest from the CW, which has now taken in the property.

    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. Since the franchise was launched with the 1980 Friday The 13th, there have been 13 movies, most recently Friday The 13th in 2009 directed by Marcus Nispel.

    SUITS

    It's official, Suits has staled. After 3 great seasons and a decent 4th season, season 5 is just full of rehashed ideas. Sick and tired of the Harvey and Louis feud. They just did this a couple of episodes ago. Oh look, Louis now regrets doing something that will harm Harvey and is scrambling to undo it.

    But it was still nice to see a blast from Mike's past. Troian Bellisario (Pretty Little Liars) guest stars as Claire. Just found that she's engaged to Suits star Patrick J. Adams (Mike Ross).

    Word, with Will basically in the Uncle Phil type role. I think that would have a lot more gravitas than a reboot

    Maybe they can get Cosby to play the old wise relative, Uncle Pill.

    One dun goofed.

    Three gave up the code to save Two's life before him? Two's going to develop the feels for Three soon. T'was a little bit of an angsty spanner in the works of the One/Two romance.

    Also, I cannot stress enough how much I think Two's actress is the sexiest goddamn thing on tv right now. I'm partial to biracial anything, she's legit smoking, and her perpetual space yoga pants show off an amazing lower body + thigh gap. What's funny is that without the makeup and Two character, she's just a really cute whazn.

    Watching IMPASTOR episodes 1 to 5. It's okay, nothing special. Michael Rosenbaum carries the show with his charisma.


    Thinking the same thing. True to his name, One probably wanted to wait until the count of one before spilling the beans lol.

    I still say they should just do the reverse Fresh Prince. Send Jaden to live in West Philly. Except really do it. And leave him there.

    Finally saw the Blindspot pilot.

    Like others have said, I wasn't blown away, but it's entertaining. One thing that I think they could have done better is the reveal. We shouldn't have seen any flashbacks, her real name, or her handler's face until at least mid-season. I'm also not a big fan of Agent Werner's actor. Dunno.

    The bright spot is Alexander. She's a better actress than the Marvel movies have given her the opportunity to show.

    She also looks amazing with that hair. The Lady Sif look doesn't do her justice.
    He was definitely going to, but from Two's perspective, it was Three's voice she heard that was giving up the information to save her life, and I can't blame her.

    One thing about One is that I'm not particularly attached to him. He's probably the least compelling protagonist I've ever seen. I give 0 fucks about his well being, honestly. I'm usually pulling for the guy to get the girl, or vice versa if the main protagonist is female, but I don't care if he does.

    My favorites are Two, Five, and Six. No particular order.

    I strongly disagree. Lady Sif look is so much better.

    Three and Four are probably my favourites. Although if Three gets all soft and starts developing feelings for Two, then he's lost me as a fan.
