TV of 2016

#1 Post by flyonthewall2983 » Fri Jan 01, 2016 1:08 am

Congrats to Amazon for making the oboe look like a sexual object on their Mozart in the Jungle promo ad.

It'll be another interesting year of new shows, particularly over at HBO with Vinyl coming in February and Westworld possibly this summer. February will also see American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson over at FX. Netflix and Amazon will continue onwards (and hopefully upwards) with new and established original shows. Meanwhile up-and-comer Hulu is hoping to make a mark this year with dramatic projects as they did last year with some very well-received comedies, with the mini-series 11.22.63 and The Path.

Christ, how does one keep up with this glut of television and streaming programming?

That is something I wonder a lot with the sheer volume of new shows on TV and online. Not that I mind the variety but I do wonder who is watching the latest scripted series on, say, A&E or the History Channel.

So is it wrong of me to be more offended that this will be a drama instead of a comedy, than I am by Joseph Fiennes' casting?

I'm just glad that someone finally listened to my Stockard Channing needs to play Liz Taylor idea even if it's thirty years too late.

Louis C.K.'s new show "Baskets" is running on FX now. Nice mix of humor and pathos.

Best case for cord-cutting in a long time.

I wonder what kind of deficiencies the ad executive who came up with has.

My guess is that he drank a lot of the product it's pushing.

Bryan Fuller's next project is apparently CBS's Star Trek.

This is great news, and I read somewhere a while ago that Star Trek is his dream project. I feel like his personal quest for greater diversity on television is a good match for the original series's goal. Hopefully the fact that it's exclusive to CBS's online service (ugh) lets him do greater things than what's typically expected of CBS shows.

For the first time ever, a broadcast network has renewed all of its original programming: it's a good day to be airing on the CW

Anyone else watching/watched Angie Tribeca? It's clearly meant to be the new Police Squad, and it's nice to see a non-Wayans or Friedberger & Seltzer doing ZAZ-style comedy. Rashida Jones seemingly has called in every chit she has in the industry with the endless celeb cameos, but like most of the show, their hit to miss ratio is pretty solid

Haven't seen Angie Tribeca yet, but Deon Cole stole every scene he had on Black-ish so I'd check it out just for him.

I expect it has to be structured with Auntie as the lead producer so as not to fall foul of HBO's deal with Sky in the UK.
