OMG. In the Olde Days we always thought it would be a movie .. and that was pure wishful thinking.

I guess it makes perfect sense given the success of series like Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Breaking Bad etc. I can see how it could be done as a gritty dark fantasy  soap opera. Lots of talking.... a bit of fighting here and there, main characters getting killed off.

I'm of 2 minds - 1) Don't fuck it up and 2) I wish they wouldn't - I like it that nobody knows our secret.

Best case it gets picked up by Netflix, if not Netflix, HBO. If this goes broadcast channels, it will be garbage. I don't think HBO will pick it up since they just announced 4 GoT spin offs.

That leaves Netflix, then. Boys, start writing letters if you want this shit to be good.
