    Joe Teague, the lead character? I see your point, I hadn't seen him in a lead role before so I was curious as to how he'd do but he outshun by other actors. My favourite would be Edward Burns; really loved his charisma and persona. The setting, neo-noir look of the show was what appealed to me, so I'll miss that.

    For those not following, a Gotham tv series is coming; set before Batman's time in the city, following Jim Gordon in his young days. Casting news are HERE.

    I really have trouble to imagine anything good coming out of this.

    Re: The Television Show Thread

    Yeah shows like this with the lack of the big character never really last long; no matter how many other characterd and villains are introduced. A show called Gotham that doesn't focus on Bruce Wayne just won't get far. We'll see how long this lasts.

    Also , they're making a Robin Hood series; where...get this, Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham are the same person. [HERE]

    They are still in the casting process for a young Bruce Wayne, but that's the closest we'll get to seeing Batman. Gordon may be a [somewhat] important character in the Gotham world and Batman stories, but couldn't they seriously not think of a better character to headline such a show?

    If it isn't Bruce Wayne, it's most likely a waste of time and won't capture any audience...lol

    Re: The Television Show Thread

    This new series "Gotham" should've been done a long, long time ago. I'm sure this is an old idea they are finally ready to put out there. Especially after, the success of the Nolan / Dark Knight trilogy. So far, Penguin and Riddler are suppose to have their background stories told in this. Hope, they build up to a possible "Year One" origin story.

    Last episode of Banshee was pretty good.

    So HBO wants to do a Remake of Utopia now... US-remakes of british shows are usually crap... but since it's HBO I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

    Anyone check out "House of Cards: Season 2". It's really f**king good, so far. Much better than the first season.

    Launching download right now. Thanks for reminder

    Edit: I saw the first one. HOLY FUCK. I didn't see that one coming. It was a real shock. This was insane. And the final speech: "Every kitten grows to be a cat" to "welcome back". Just wow. Might be the best first episode of a second season from any serie.

    From all characters in house of cards, i just hope that rachel will be happy in the end. Her and the former lover of russo are the only two human characters in this snake nest.

    The one i want to see suffer is not underwood ... there is one character i really hate: his wife.

    Ohh and poor lucas.

    Re: The Television Show Thread

    Watched the season 2 of House of Cards, was good but not great, some aspects were better than S1, some were worse, but the series as a whole does not belong to the truly great for me, especially compared to titles like Breaking Bad, Sopranos, Wire, Firefly or heck, even the recent True Detective (it´s not finished yet though, so no definite rating there). The writing is just too convenient and lazy sometimes, both regarding the plot progression and the characters´characterization, but with the top notch performances and obviously the high production value, the show will be a highlight of 2013 and 14.

    I tried one of the new Amazon pilots, which are up to vote now by the way, called "Mozart in the Jungle". I really did not expect anything, especially since none of the Amazon shows i watched were truly noteworthy, the "New York Philharmonic" setting just piqued my interest since i am a huge classical music buff but the pilot pleasantly surprised me, it was pretty good. If you find the time, check it out and if you like it, vote for it on amazon, i would like to see this show picked up.
