WTF? They are bringing back The Tick? And still no Firefly?

I give up.

Don't hate on the Tick. The cartoon show was awesome.

I'm not hatting on it other then I find it absurd it's coming back over far better cult shows.

The one with Patrick Warburton, or the cartoon?

 

More importantly, source?

After seeing The Expanse, I give 0 fucks about Firefly. And I was the biggest Browncoat nutjob you could find.

Nothing against FIREFLY (one of the most enjoyable sci-fi shows in the past 20 years) but I feel like it had its chance what with the movie and comic books and novels...


Mainstream appeal just wasn't there, I guess.

The movie did ok once you count DVD/Blu Ray sales and it still enjoys a sizable cult following. If the cast and creators would be up for it and a streaming service like Netflix would foot the bill, why not? My point centered more around the fact that we are seeing things like the Tick return when shows like Firefly which have a much larger loyal fan base haven't returned.

Also X-Files got a movie, comics, books, etc for years and they still brought it back. So I don't agree that it's about a franchise "having it's chance."

At this point I think it really boils down to Joss and if he wants to do it or not. The man may have moved on himself and would rather focus on new projects.

Firefly is one of those shows I feel like I should love, but I can never make it passed the second episode. That western train heist episode was boring. There's so much good TV out there now so I've never felt the need to go back.

SPIELBERG AND FORD REUNITE AS INDIANA JONES RETURNS TO THEATERS JULY 19, 2019

Indiana Jones will return to the big screen on July 19, 2019, for a fifth epic adventure in the blockbuster series. Steven Spielberg, who directed all four previous films, will helm the as-yet-untitled project with star Harrison Ford reprising his iconic role. Franchise veterans Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall will produce.

“Indiana Jones is one of the greatest heroes in cinematic history, and we can’t wait to bring him back to the screen in 2019,” said Alan Horn, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios. “It’s rare to have such a perfect combination of director, producers, actor and role, and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this adventure with Harrison and Steven.”

Famed archaeologist and explorer Indiana Jones was introduced in 1981’s Raiders of the Lost Ark – one of AFI’s 100 Greatest American Films of All Time – and later thrilled audiences in 1984’s Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, 1989’s Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, and 2008’s Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The four films have brought in nearly $2 billion at the global box office.

Franchise has already nuked the fridge. Not sure if they should return to it unless they have an amazing script in waiting.
post #2713 of 3801
It seemed like the last movie sort of closed the Indiana Jones story out (married, with a kid?). Are they going to have him out showing Mutt (worst character name ever) the archaeology/grave robbing/cultural rape ropes?

Gross. Though I did read that George Lucas isn't involved at all, but still, who wants to see a 75-year old Ford run around?

FWIW, he seemed much more sprite and lively in TFA than in Kingdom of the Crystal Skull some ten years before. Who knows?
