This looks great!  8)



I need something to fill the Game of Thrones sized hole in my life and this might be it! :jumps:

Thoughts?

Could be cool... looks dark.

Hope they have a small homage to Yul in it somewhere.

It looks good and being HBO it actually ought to be good but I will reserve judgement until after I've seen it, there have been so many crappy remakes.

I want to see it, I liked the original. I remember there being a book, but I think it was written for the movie or was at least mostly based off of the script. I never read it. I think Crichton wrote both the movie and the book.

But this one looks at least as dark, but probably will throw more focus on things only hinted at or presented in short shots in the movie. I guess I'll just have to wait a month to find out.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I watched the original, kind of weird but I liked it.

I haven't read the book but based on the trailer for the series, it seems they're going to diverge quite a bit from the original, which isn't a bad thing. Plus it's got Anthony Hopkins in it so what could go wrong? :grin:

The Asmo wants Killjoys to have more episodes per season.  :( Also, He wants more Z-nation.  :( Generally, more zombies for The Asmo.  :(

...He's into light stuff currently. Easy-watching and what have you.

I absolutely love it. For the first time in a long time, I have no idea where a show is going with their story line and I love it. I've called some minor things, (ok one major one but no spoilers), but I still don't know how it will apply to the overall plot.

The only complaints I've heard are that it's "too slow", and yes, it does take more than an 8 second attention span to watch. And that it's just weird. And yes, it's sci-fi with a whole fuckton of moral ambiguity. That shit is indeed weird.

I love weird! :popcorn: Looks like it's just as awesome as I thought it'd be. :smilenod:

I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I highly recommend at least 2 episodes. Honestly I was hooked on the opening credits alone. Just so beautifully done.



And Anthony Hopkins is amazing as always.

If anyone else is watching, I'd totally start a spoilers thread to discuss.

I'm liking it so far. Apart from the story, what I like about it, is that it doesn't do a lot of the editing things that normally bother me. I think it's just going along at a nice and steady pace.
