Forget that embarrassing 2019 remake…the real deal is here. After a development cycle spanning several years and one pandemic, Chucky the Killer Doll finally has his own TV series, which debuts its first episode in a matter of days.
Can a doll catch COVID-19? It remains to be proven, but if Batman can catch the coronavirus, why take chances? USA and SyFy announced today their long-in-development Chucky TV series will be in development a bit longer, until it’s safer to resume filming. Deadline broke the news.
It’s been a long loooong time since we last saw baggy-eyed Rami Malek in the role that made him famous. You would be forgiven for assuming USA’s Mr. Robot had been cancelled already. The show has not aired a new episode since 2017, despite creator Sam Esmail promising a fourth and final season at the time. He PROMISED!
Back in the early 90s, two computer programmers changed video gaming forever with the PC release of the original Doom — not the original first-person shooter, but definitely the first mega-popular one. The story of John Carmack and John Romero’s big project was told in Masters of Doom, a biography by David Kushner that has just been picked up for a possible television adaption.
First things first: anyone who hasn’t seen at least the first season of Mr. Robot shouldn’t be reading news items about Season 3 until they have seen it. You’ll thank me for this warning later. Now onto spoilers.
It’s weird we went through the entirety of SDCC just two weeks ago without one single peek at the third season of Mr. Robot. But it’s here now; the first trailer with the first footage. Until today we didn’t know a single thing about what would happen next. And as of now….we still don’t. Well, you try to make sense of it:
Title sequences of ABC’s family programming during the late 80’s and early 90’s had a sameness to them. A bombastic, overly cheery theme song, characters turning to the camera and smiling; even the font displaying their names was always the same. This is because nearly every single TGIF program from that era was created by the same production company, Miller-Boyett Productions.
