Exactly. There's only a finite amount of stories to tell and ways to tell them. Much like music.

I'm fine with that and when I'm not, I try to create my own :-)

Toasted HereticMay 12 04:24 pm JSTThey have a Black, Lesbian, Rapper trying to fill the shoes of the likes of Edward Woodward and Denzel Washington. Doubt the show will last a full season.

They have an actor who has already proved their acting chops in cinema and television over 30 years.

Not sure what the color of her skin, her sexuality or music career has to do with the role?

But since we're there, Edward Woodward recorded over a dozen albums of music and spoken word.

The real problem is THIS: just like cinema movies it's just

There's been several Wonder Man characters over the last 80 years.

Will Eisner got into legal troubles over his Wonder Man back in the 30s. DC saw him as too close to several of their characters.

And of course, the latter now have at least 3 heroes what have used the actual name since the 60s.

So, yes, I'd quite enjoyed a show by that name, too.

I cant wait until we get see these TV shows:

WonderMan

Charlies Devils(played by men)

I have no problem trying to get more women etc into roles, just don't be so OBVIOUS & forcing the roles, etc, put them into something NEW, or else the shows will fail more than succeed

I quite enjoyed the Hannibal series.

My favorite iteration is probably Brian Cox in Manhunter followed by the Silence of the Lambs film.

TV and film have always done remakes, spin-offs and sequels. Not sure why this upsets some people?

There are loads of really good shows now. In fact, it's a golden age of television!

Indeed. I don't understand those that claim it's rubbish.

Currently watching:

Atlanta

Better Call Saul

The Boys

In the Line of Duty

Umbrella Academy

Dear White People

The Good Fight

Black Mirror

Fear the Walking Dead

Fleabag

amongst others.

Of course, it's subjective and all that but there's talent out there.

Then again, compared to JP TV, it's all Citizen Kane.

True. But, the majority of it is from the streaming services like Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu, or pay providers like HBO. Very little on the broadcast networks, at least in the US.

Obviously, the UK is different story with a fair amount of quality TV from the BBC, ITV, and Channel4 networks. But, US broadcast networks serve mostly crap.

..... massive yawn!! This woke attitude to tv & movies usually falls flat on its face, I could care less, reading this makes me glad I have pretty much given up on tv & video's, now I only go to the cinema once in a blue moon.

And totally agree re-hashes of old stuff is well getting old! Actually make that ancient!
