Tomorrow I head to the office and I'm already
behind on emails and comment replies. o_o At least I got a decent chunk of work done today, and spent the latter half of the evening curled up with The Obelisk Gate
In lieu of a real post, linkspam.
I've yet to read or see any of The Expanse
, but for those who have, kayim
just launched rocinante
Fox is bringing us another round of The X-Files
(ten episodes this time). I... I don't think I can do this again. I'll keep an ear out and see what those who do watch it think, and I'm willing to be pleasantly surprised, but after how appallingly awful last year's new eps. were, I doubt I'll be touching this without some strong recommendations.
From that link, I skimmed through "Fall TV pilots 2017: The full list"
. Let's see. I assume I'll give Inhumans
a try (barring Iron Fist
levels of nearly everyone recoiling in horror as soon as the advance reviews/reactions started); S.W.A.T.
doesn't sound like my thing, but FYI for Criminal Minds
fans, Shemar Moore's headlining it (and EW staff writer, your blurb is literally two sentences. How did no one notice that the first sentence begins with "Inspired by the film of the same name" and
the second sentence, in its entirety, reads "Inspired by the film of the same name"?); Alan Cumming being the lead in Instinct
could be enough to tempt me into giving that a shot, although it likewise doesn't really sound up my alley; Untitled Marvel Action-Adventure Series
stars Amy Acker, so that's a no-brainer for me; and Reverie
has Sarah Shahi and sounds potentially interesting (Sendhil Ramamurthy is in the cast too, if that's of interest)."Mike Colter Describes Jessica Jones Season Two As “Dark And Heavy”"
