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.

We need to all put in our choices again for the living actors capable of playing the roles.   I do NOT like Eliza Dushku for The Lady.   She's hot and no doubt capable of filling in somewhere, she's just not The Lady hawt.    I'll work up my list and post it up...gimme a damn reason to get back to these hallowed halls of ours what has become so dusty and moldy and shit.

I just like the fact that Eliza is a TBC fan ... lets recruit her post haste!

I'm not sold on Dushku as The Lady either.. but I think our original pick my be a bit too old now... Kate Beckensale is still smoking hot though...

Megan Fox has the right look these days.. but I don't think she has the acting chops...

I'd like see someone like Amber Heard get a shot at it ...

Hell .. Buffy's lil sister Michelle Trachtenberg is of the right age now too.
