  1. Man, Sean Bean is everywhere these days! I'll have to keep my eyes peeled on A & E for his new series. Six episodes only -- I love Brit TV for that reason. You don't have to invest months of your time to watch something.

    1. And Versailles will, by the way, air in Canada too in November at the same time as in France :) And only later on in 2016 in UK and rest of the world

    2. Will that be on the History channel, Dez? Or perhaps Showcase? Do your sources say?

    3. Super Channel and Bell Media in Canada, and on Movistar in Spain, Canal Plus in France and BBC 2 (but that one only in early 2016).

    4. Crap, I don't get either of those. I'll have to wait until it comes on later on some other channel.

  2. Boy, Eva's on a roll with those sitcoms. FRANKENSTEIN CHRONICLES sounds intriguing.

  3. Bathory could be such a great show, but I think it's more fitting for a cable network that can take some risks, as opposed to CBS.

  4. I've been enjoying the first season of FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, but it has such a stupid name. Surely they could've come up with something better.

    1. It was originally supposed to be named COBALT after the army code for the plan in which the army leaves them to zombies. I don't know why they opted for that other stupid name in the end. And I also don't know why they chose such an ugly cast :) almost none of them has charisma... especially the leading actress who also has an exquisitely of/putting character too. And their children are horrid.... But the story was interesting, although I wish they were more imaginative with the setting.

  5. Dang! Go Eva, Go! It's like she got a sudden burst of creative energy and bam! She's all over the place now. Good for her!

    2. Eva Longoria Blue.... Doesn't that sound sweet?

  6. Several interesting things here Dezzy. I enjoyed Fear the Walking Dead, and looking forward to the Yacht setting.

    I doubt a black cop shooting a white teen will have the same impact as the opposite. Nobody will believe the shooting isn't justified.

    1. should be fun, they say don't fear that the sea has no zombies... it apparently does :) I'm guessing they will come onto other ships filled with zombies or something.

  7. I love anything to do with Frankenstein. Indictment sounds interesting.

  9. I've been meaning to watch Fear the Walking Dead and just haven't gotten around to it yet. I will say that the idea of it being primarily on water is exciting because that's something I've wanted to see for a long time now.

    1. I do love isolated settings, like when Rick was in that tenk or when they were in the prison.

  10. The Hungarian Blood Countess sounded like one very sick woman!
