Walking Dead show coming to an end, but another spinoff just got announced, focusing on Maggie/Negan in NYC.... joins the Carol/Daryl spinoff and the "Tales of The Walking Dead" spinoff. The "Fear The Walking Dead" spinoff still continues as well... no word on the previously announced trilogy of movies following up on Rick Grimes...

The last one was pretty not good.... but I'm a sucker so I'll go see this....

I feel like dinosaurs running amok wouldn't be such a huge problems for society.... They'd cause some carnage at first, sure, but then our advanced weaponry and technology would blow them away. We're kind of experts at making things extinct.

Castlevania: Nocturne teaser trailer dropped.

New series will center around Richtor Belmont. Alucard likely going to return. Maria Renard and the villain Shaft probably going to appear as well, I imagine.

Going to miss Trevor and Sypha though.

Wonder if they're going to somehow reference the "Belmont thought bubble" when Maria runs into Alucard while looking for him where, when she mentions "Belmont", Trevor's sprite set shows up in her bubble, and when Drac Jr's bubble pops up, its NES Trevor?

Me explaining that took far longer than it would prob'ly appear onscreen if they did.

MGM was caught sleeping and lost the Tomb Raider movie rights. Alicia Vikander is done.

Studios are already lining up bids to get the rights.

The movie theater 5 minutes up the highway from closed it's doors. The lease ran out. And with few people going these days and others going the streaming route, add in the fact that there's nothing good out there these days, I can understand it. Landlord of the property I guess is putting feelers out to other theater chains to see if anyone wants the place.

That. And the fact that the place was falling apart. I'd figure during the pandemic when things were shut down they'd put up some cash for a construction crew and do a nice renovation/remodel. Nope.

Next closest place is a small 2-screen independent place where if you blink, you'll probably miss the movie you want to see. Only have films for a week or two then move on to something else.

It sucks because I can always count on the movie theater as a place to escape and relax for a couple hours. I guess now staying at home with the small screen and microwave popcorn is the new normal.

Theater is on its last leg. The only thing that draws are major blockbusters. Without them theyd have collapsed 7 or years ago. The home viewing experience rivals and in many cases surpasses the theater experience. In 20 years theaters will be like blockbuster

You can get a pretty decent setup for a fairly decent cost, IMO. I just recently got a Dolby Atmos capable surround sound system ($300-$400 can't remember) and it has changed EVERYTHING.


Agree with Destor, and I too love going to the theatre.

CW cancels Whose Line is it Anyway? with the current season 19.

Not like I was watching it, but damn.... seems like the cheapest show to make. Unless the talent is getting paid exorbitant rates.

The show made its money back theough syndication. With that market all but dead, abd the show not getting plays on streaming, there's no real way to finance these old model shows

I guess so, yeah.... that's pretty much how I stopped watching the show. Not because I didn't enjoy it and didn't find it funny.... I just stopped watching regular TV.

Cinema, as in the theater itself, will face this "old model" issue soon enough. Smaller character-driven films already have no ability to generate revenue in the theater model; their only way to get made these days is long-form narratives.

The death of the DVD market means films have to recoup their budget costs in the theater run and hope to turn profit through digital distribution rights. It completely collapsed a huge revenue stream leaving just blockbusters standing and the number of failures there is concerning as well.

With fewer movies being made this means fewer tickets annually being sold. The death of the theater isn't far away.

Point is the old model of tv and film doesn't work anymore and the market will adjust accordingly.

I seriously wonder if there will ever be a "successful" sitcom ever again.... feel like the last "cycle" of sitcoms will be the last of the "traditional network sitcom".....

Unsure. Network sitcom? Those are dead. But a 3 cam sitcom can totally work streaming. Seinfeld and Friends are wildly popular on streaming sites

Yeah, network sitcom. Sitcoms can still work on streaming, but won't be quite "the same". Feel like the most successful sitcoms got over via syndication... just turning on the TV and it being like always on. There will no doubt be successful ones but feel like they won't be as "culturally pervasive" in that "everyone" is watching them.

Syndication was def a big player and you do highlight a great point. The loss of traditional tv brings a loss of this shared culture. Everyone in the country watching I Love Lucy at the exact same time meant that, literally, when the commercial breaks came on the water reservoirs dipped because the entire country went to the bathroom at the same time. The next day at work everyone had a shared experience to talk about and bond over at work.

Ive thought that a solution could be a "airing now" section. In the vien of netflix's "choose something for me" except its a "channel" on netflix with a dedicated schedule showing things to everyone at the same time.

They could premire things through it with on demand happening the next day/week but if you wanted to see it first you have to watch it "live."

I think the closest we will get is what Disney+ is doing, just doing the weekly release. I'm sure they'll get a sitcom on there eventually.... but even if they do, most people aren't going to be re-watching episodes, there is just too much content out there. So the "pervasiveness" will still be a lot less.

Damn.... now I'm getting nostalgic for the "good old days of TV" when I would get home from school, turn on the TV and enjoy a programming block of cartoons or sitcoms or whatever....

Even nostalgic for commercials...

ha! I religiously watched the local Fox channel here when I'd get home from school.


Remember watching power rangers and actually getting through the contest line. They picked up and said "WHAT TIME IS IT?!" and wanted "It's Morphin time!" as the response. Instead, I looked at the nearest clock and told them the time, multiple times, before being told to try again.




I got through a 2nd time and freakin won after I realized what a dumbass I was. Sweet prize package too.


The Power Rangers VHS (new at the time)
White Ranger action figure


that's what i remember, but there was a TON more.

Reports say that Warner Bros Discovery is seriously considering rebooting the Harry Potter franchise, starting back at the first book again.

I guess it has been more than a decade since the last one wrapped up.... but it would be super awkward rebooting them. Not like it is a superhero story where they can pick and choose elements and make their own take and their own story.... it would just be the same story with new actors.

The only way I could see it working is a reboot not as a film series but an HBO Max show where they go into deeper detail every school year... can even pad it out with original stuff too...
