Powers Pilot Getting Reworked Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
The TV version of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s comic series Powers has been called in for a pit stop. As already shot, the pilot was based on a script by Charles Eglee and starred Jason Patrick and Lucy Punch as Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim as a pair of homicide cops (with awfully clunky names) investigating cases involving the superpowered,
After some reworking and reshooting, any or all of that could change – though, from Deadline‘s story it does seem like the alterations will be more minor than a total overhaul. Maybe they’ll just change the names. I honestly wish they would.
FX seem at least determined to rework their pilots before scrapping them: they’ve just pulled the plug on Outlaw Country completely, having already shot it and reshot it. So, while it’s good for Powers that they’re investing in some fixing, it’s still far from a guarantee that the show will ever get to be a series.
Two-Hour American Horror Story Finale Cut to 90 Minutes | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
Just what I needed, another reason to hate GLEE.Yes, "American Horror Story" fans, the rumors you've heard are true. The Season 1 finale, which was originally scheduled to be a two-hour extravaganza of fear, has been clipped to 90 minutes. Although this may sound like bad news at first, fear not. It has nothing to do with the popularity of the series or the reception it's received. This is simply a scheduling issue. Long story short... series creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk have so much great stuff going on they can't find time to cram it all in!
Here's the breakdown per Deadline: Murphy and Falchuk have this little show called "Glee" that they also created. If you haven't heard of it, it's pretty much one of the biggest shows on network TV right now. So the boys were obligated to complete Season 2 of "Glee" before they were able to begin work on the pilot for "American Horror Story," which put them a bit behind the 8-ball as far as scheduling was concerned right off the bat.
FX picked up the show toward the end of July and released the first episode on October 5. This doesn't leave a lot of wiggle room in making the additional 12 episodes. Now, take into consideration that "American Horror Story" is not the easiest television show to produce. Sometimes an episode that was slated to film in seven days took eight days to complete. Compound that with a 13-episode run, and you see where you can run into a scheduling nightmare. And that's exactly what happened with the finale.
Now here's the good news. The idea of just running a one-hour season finale was bandied about, but word is that Ryan Murphy came up with an intriguing 90-minute finale that would fit into the schedule and leave audiences with smiles on their faces, thus satisfying all parties involved. Additionally, fans of the series will be happy to know that the ratings have been very favorable and there has been discussion regarding the second season of "American Horror Story," which has already been picked up, running longer than the originally scheduled 13 episodes. Stay tuned, gorehounds!
Ok, American Horror Story. Not digging it so much anymore. Seems like they spent more time conceiving it than actually working on the details. And this last episode introduced more 'children', a plot point with the burned man(that really was a little baffling), and just some sexual weirdness just for shock(the 'rubbing one out' scene). I mean really, all of a sudden she is fantasizing about the security guy who seems to have been shoehorned in and disappears for long stretches. I dunno, stiil wondering where they are going with this but they definitely have lost some momentum. Maybe the 'reveal' of the rubber-suit man this week(if it even happens) will help. It just seems that the past few episodes have really been nothing but filler. Not much happening just a lot of oooooohhhhhhh see how southern gothic with a kink we are... Just a little disappointed but willing to forgive it if they can be a little more consistent.
American Horror Story has continued to peter out. I am really starting to not give a rats ass. Too much filler. I can't stand Connie Britton. You are supposed to feel sympathy for her, I JUST DON'T CARE. The daughter is the only character who isn't annoying. I have had about enough of Zachary Quinto's mealy mouthed character too. Just not enough meat on this bare boned story. Could have been a good movie, maybe. I will still watch, hoping that they can finish strong...but so far too little story, too many characters, and too much forced weirdness. I get the feeling that the creators were busy with GLEE almost to the point of distraction. Scroll up to #116 to see how the finale was cut down because they 'didn't have enough time'. Look, this is a show that needs MORE attention than Glee. Half-assed plotting and repetition of the same points is killing my interest in this show. Anyone else?
