I've never watched this show but that trailer was AWESOME!

I hope the series lives up to that! The first three seasons were terrific, but season four is being made by a different production company. Not sure what to expect now.

Oh no...that could change everything for the fans. I hope it stays up to par.

definitely for an audience who hasn't seen any previous TW though, don't you think? The only thing that was familiar to me was the name and that little bit of the theme music. I'm so deeply ambivalent about this production.

Yes, I think you're right. It's very reminiscent of the teaser trailers that we got for "Children Of Earth", and they were almost certainly designed to interest people who'd never seen TW before. This is a bit of a gamble for Starz, though. I suppose they need to hook as many people as possible.

I'm expecting to see the actors soon, though - Bill Pullman and the actor playing Rex are both quite well known in the US, and the character of Captain Jack is surprising familiar to folks on US entertainment site.

TW casting news
I suppose it was bound to happen, someone I like is going to appear:

Captain Jack versus Q! Who will win?

Btw, have you seen the guns footage on youtube?

Re: TW casting news
Captain Jack will win of course. :p

I was never a fan of The Next Generation, so I've seen very little of Q. He's certainly very popular in fandom, though. Hopefully that'll be good for Torchie. :)

And no, I've not seen that footage. I did hear that there was a bit out there, but I can never quite decide if I want to see things like that. My spoiler shields are set to maximum at the moment, with the new series of Doctor Who coming up, but I'll try arguing with myself about it later.

Re: TW casting news
Well yeah, Captain Jack will win (at the last minute or so) since it's his show.

One of my fave ST: TNG episodes was when Q became human.

Maybe I'll have to check youtube and see if anyone uploads any of JDL's scenes...

The footage is pretty much just people with guns so I don't think you'd really spoil yourself if you watched it.

Re: TW casting news
Well, guns are always good. ;) So maybe I will take a look.

You're not planning to watch at all, then? Not even if the reviews are good?

Re: TW casting news
If you take a look, let me know what you think of it. I think it's like twenty-one seconds long. You'll hear the TW music.

Yeah, still not planning to watch it. I'm sure I'll see reviews (I bet right now that some will praise it and some won't, isn't that always what happens?). Guess it'll depend on how much I want to be able to understand what's talked about on the imdb board and the TWoP thread. But if I do end up watching it, it'll be after all the episodes air and I see the reaction to the last episodes (like the shock etc. when Day 4 and 5 aired) and not just the excitement that people will get, having a new story to watch.

Re: TW casting news
I think it's ten episodes this time, with several different stories. So you could maybe try the first one or two? That way you could see if you like it, but avoid any nasty surprises, as they're bound to keep them for later on. I understand your dilemma, though.

Re: TW casting news
Ten episodes, yes but it's all one story.

Of course, I'll read any review you do of the episodes. :) Any picspams would be appreciated.

Re: TW casting news
I'm sure I shall post something! :) I don't know yet when I shall see it, though. It would be weird downloading TW from America, but I have no idea when it's airing in the UK.

Re: TW casting news
Yay! I will look forward to it!

I suspect you'll hear something last or 2nd last Friday of June, about when it'll air. Don't you only find out about 3 weeks beforehand, what's going to start airing?

Re: TW casting news
Two to three weeks officially, yes. Sometimes you hear something before that, but they won't confirm air dates until practically the last minute.
